Not something that was said, but I was given a 2018 Coaster calendar for Christmas and this was one of the photos. :|

In my eyes, I think of this as a sister ride to Montu in Tampa, FL. It has the same feel to it, and would look very similar to each other if you mirrored one of them. They are probably my two all-time favorites of inverted coasters and are both the steel giants of their parks.


Oh dear god. . . :omg:


My friend went to Busch Gardens Tampa and skipped Montu because "it looked the same as Mind Eraser." He had already left the park before I had realized what he had done.

On the bright side, he loved everything else he rode, especially Kumba and SheiKra.

I consider myself part of the GP. I've never worked for a park and even if I am successful in making my ideal job of creative director in the amusement industry work out, I'll still consider myself GP. In my mind, bewildering the GP is what theme parks are all about, and I myself love to be bewildered by a park too. A GP who doesn't understand what's going on shows that the park is doing its job well IMO.

Did my donkey title just change???

I agree, while no one is required to know anything about theme parks, this is our chance to have a large “inside joke” if you will, about our knowledge that sensible people don’t spend their free time learning.

I would think that this OFFICIAL POSTER for the Fox series "9-1-1" would count.

This looks like one of those clickbait news article images and is being used by a major network television series.
