Re: 40 Random Questions [2019 Off-Season Edition]

Postby A.J. » Sun Jan 20, 2019 6:50 am

I've been waiting for this.

3 of my favorites? Let's go with some underrated ones, Lightning Racer, Mindbender, and Tennessee Tornado.

Parks I visited in 2018? Seven.

Favorite visit? My first visit to Busch Gardens Tampa back in November.

Favorite addition? Slinky Dog Dash and Toy Story Land.

Ride that exceeded expectations? Twisted Cyclone.

Best meal? The Chicken Thai noodles at the Skipper Canteen.

Favorite non-RMC / Larson new coaster? Slinky Dog Dash.

Park to visit in 2019? Liseberg.

Best ride themed to a bird? Phoenix, of course. Get on my level.

Lamest coaster I rode in 2018? Sand Serpent.

Bucket list coaster? Balder, forever and always.

New-for-2019 coaster? Untamed.

Middle-of-road park? Wild Adventures.

Orlando ERT session? Mako. Funny story, I actually had an ERT session on Mako back in October.

Holiday in the Park or Winterfest? Haven't been to either.

Shed or fire? Wicker Man's fire, definitely.

Most recent Six Flags visit? Six Flags Over Georgia.

Intamin or Schwarzkopf? Intamin, unfortunately.

Kings Island or Kings Dominion? Haven't been to either.

Longest wait? About 1 hour and 40 minutes for my first ride on Avatar Flight of Passage. Worth it.

Most-ridden coaster? Phoenix. Of course, of course, of course.

Best small drop towers? Haha, as if you'd get me on a drop tower.

Maverick or Millennium Force? I'd want to ride Maverick more.

Log flumes or sky rides? Log flumes.

Other enjoyable home park things? Seeing shows, eating good food, and just walking around for exercise.

Second favorite Cedar Fair park? Well, I've only been to Dorney Park, so...

Why visit my home park? Three kick-butt B&Ms and manatee viewing areas.

Launch or lift? Lift.

Did I buy any line skipping passes? Nope.

Least favorite wooden coaster? Great American Scream Machine.

Disney fans? Somewhere in the middle. Most are really great people but others are just nuts. I was not happy when the only T-shirt I wanted from Mickey's 90th event was sold out at 8 in the morning on a Thursday when the actual event wasn't until Saturday.

Best Batman themed ride? The inverted coasters.

Take-home from parks? Event-specific T-shirts or merch.

Best wooden coaster over 110 feet tall? El Toro, that's an easy one.

Ever hit with something? Nope!

Are Skywarps credits? Not in our traditional sense, but I would consider them powered coasters. So closer to a "credit" than a Larson loop.

Turkey legs? Nah.

Most recent B&M? Kumba, last week.

Corn dogs, churros or funnel cake? Churros.

On-ride photo? I don't ever purchase on-ride photos.

:lol: I'm so glad that this is here.

1. Name 3 of your favorite roller coasters, but not your top 3.
- Here I go with my contrarian bullsh*t... Steel Vengeance
- Twister at Knoebels, only because this ride gets no love whatsoever
- Get ready to belt it... get ready... get ready... it's the MIIIIIIIIIIISTY MYSTERY MIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINE :lol:

2. About how many different parks did you visit in 2018?
You know that I'm too lazy to count this

3. Which 2018 park visit was your favorite?
I have Knoe f*cking idea.

4. Your favorite 2018 park addition (ride, food, show, etc)?
Those single rail coasters are god damn ridiculous. I also love that Holiday in the Park in f*cking Chicago is a thing but I didn't make it out for the event so I can't really pick it.

5. What ride exceeded your expectations the most in 2018?
A few come to mind...

- Navi River Journey... quit your f*cking bitching about this ride. I expected it to suck because of all the whining but it was fantastic.
- Blue Hawk
- Cannibal

6. Best meal/food at a park in 2018?
Bro...
Image

7. What was your favorite new coaster of 2018 NOT made by RMC or Larson?
Thank god we rode Oscar's Wacky Taxi because I think the only other coaster that fits that description is Wild Whizzer at Morey's and that would be such a ridiculous answer

8. Name one park you will definitely visit in 2019.
Cedar Point... when are we going? :lol:

9. Best ride themed to a bird?
I warned you that you should specify that the bird CAN'T be on fire or everyone would have the same answer. Make that 2 votes for Phoenix. :lol:

10. Lamest ride/coaster you rode in 2018?
Peter Pan's Flight. Antarctica is objectively worse for 99% of the ride but then there are penguins so all is forgiven.

11. What roller coaster currently sits at the top of your bucketlist? (degree of difficulty: NOT a new-for-2019 ride)
Nemesis

12. What new-for-2019 ride or coaster are you most looking forward to?
Image
Just hook me up to a butterbeer IV please.

13. Name the first totally middle-of-the-road (not bad/not great) park that comes to mind.
Image
Behold... the new addition

14. You're in Orlando and magically have a 1-hour ERT session on 1 coaster of your choice at any park in the city. You choose...
I should probably say Manta, Everest or Mummy but...

Image
Gringotts... the best ride in Orlando ;)

15. Holiday In The Park vs. Winterfest. Who reigns supreme?
Image
Cheers to riding Nitro in a snowy, frozen, blustery hellscape. Winterfest sucks the big one.

16. Mystic Timbers mystery shed or Wicker Man fire infusion?
TURN AROOOOOOUND BRIGHT EYES

17. Which Six Flags have you been to most recently?
The one where every day is...




... a Great Adventure

18. Intamin or Schwarzkopf? You may only choose one.
Intamin

19. Battle of Kings Coasters: Island or Dominion? Pick one.
Is it night time? No? Then Kings Dominion.

20. What was the longest you waited for a ride/coaster in 2018?
2 hours for Valravn since it kept breaking :lol:

21. What roller coaster have you ridden more than any other?
It's got to be Six Flags' Most Explosive Coaster :lol:

22. Best drop tower under 150 feet?
Best drop tower period... Demon Drop.

23. Maverick or Millennium Force? (If you haven't been to CP, pick what you want to ride more)
This is a tough call but I guess I'll have to go with the single greatest coaster to ever grace planet earth and say Millennium Force (of course of course).

24. Log flumes or sky rides? You can only choose one.
I hate you

25. What are 3 things you enjoying doing at your home park other than riding rides?
Drinking beer, drinking Shipwreck Cider, drinking those frozen things at the Sky Bar

26. What is your second favorite Cedar Fair park and why?
Kings Dominion because it's pretty, the coaster lineup is fantastic and they have one of the best flumes in America.

27. What is your home park and give us two good reasons why we should pay it a visit.
Technically? Rye Playland I guess but we never go there.

Um... you can save money on drugs by using some of the complimentary needles in the parking lot and their Volare hasn't technically killed anyone yet

28. Launch or Lift?
Lift

29. Did you buy fast pass at all in 2018?
F*ck yeah we did

30. What is your least favorite wooden coaster?
Mighty Canadian Minebuster would be dramatically better if it was on fire

31. Disney fanboys: cool or cult?
I've been lucky enough that I haven't had to deal with it, so I'll say it's probably a mix.

32. Best Batman themed ride?
Does Justice League count?

33. Name something that tend to take home from parks that you didn't bring with you.
Ornaments

34. Best wooden coaster over 110 feet tall? (rcdb will help you)
I don't need RCDB.

35. Have you ever been hit with something (loose change/a tree/vomit/etc) while riding something?
I was hit with the crippling realization that I was at f*cking Sesame Place and that I needed to re-evaluate my life while we were riding Vapor Trail (but it was fun, lol).

We were also hit with a sh*t ton of snow on Batman during Holiday in the Park. It was great. :lol:

36. Skywarps: credits or no? State your case.
It's 2 credits because it's like 2 super loops.

37. Turkey legs: nah or yaaaaassssss?
Nah

38. What is the most recent B&M that you rode?
Nitro in January

Probably Untamed/RMC Robin Hood since I'm pretty sure I'll be riding it this summer. Hakugai looks the better though.

13. Name the first totally middle-of-the-road (not bad/not great) park that comes to mind.

Canobie Lake Park (duh)

14. You're in Orlando and magically have a 1-hour ERT session on 1 coaster of your choice at any park in the city. You choose...

Slinky Dog Dash...

15. Holiday In The Park vs. Winterfest. Who reigns supreme?

Winterfest has better lights, but I'll take Six Flags since they run a ton of coasters and don't give a rats booty about cold temperatures.

16. Mystic Timbers mystery shed or Wicker Man fire infusion?

Wicker Man's pyro's wet dream

17. Which Six Flags have you been to most recently?

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

18. Intamin or Schwarzkopf? You may only choose one.

Intamin

19. Battle of Kings Coasters: Island or Dominion? Pick one.

Kings Dominion. I like the top two quality better than Kings Island's breadth.

20. What was the longest you waited for a ride/coaster in 2018?

2 hours for WDW's Splash Mountain. They were out of Fastpasses and I couldn't stay until close, but there was no way I was leaving without one ride on that masterpiece.

21. What roller coaster have you ridden more than any other?

Excalibur

22. Best drop tower under 150 feet?

[Checks how tall Larson towers are]

AtmosFEAR or Stratosfear

23. Maverick or Millennium Force? (If you haven't been to CP, pick what you want to ride more)

Millennium Force

24. Log flumes or sky rides? You can only choose one.

Log flumes. It's not even close.

25. What are 3 things you enjoying doing at your home park other than riding rides?

(For Canobie) Playing pinball, listening to the carousel's music, interacting with the scare actors.

(For SFNE) Using my meal plan, looking at the superhero memorabilia, killing time before Haunted Graveyard opens

26. What is your second favorite Cedar Fair park and why?

Knott's Berry Farm. It has easily the best theming of the Cedar Fair parks, some nice classic dark rides, an awesome chicken restaurant, and GhostRider.

27. What is your home park and give us two good reasons why we should pay it a visit.

Canobie Lake Park- Charm and Customer Service
SFNE- Superman and Wicked Cyclone

28. Launch or Lift?

Lift. I want that first drop.

29. Did you buy fast pass at all in 2018?

Yes I did at most parks I visited.

30. What is your least favorite wooden coaster?

Rebel Yell when it ran backwards

31. Disney fanboys: cool or cult?

Considering I saw one chastise a cast member for It's a Small World Holiday having one bulb out, I'm hesitant to say all are cool. But most are.

32. Best Batman themed ride?

Joker at Discovery Kingdom

33. Name something that tend to take home from parks that you didn't bring with you.

Germs

34. Best wooden coaster over 110 feet tall? (rcdb will help you)

Lightning Rod (best coaster period)

35. Have you ever been hit with something (loose change/a tree/vomit/etc) while riding something?

Yes. Some moron was intentionally vomiting ice cream on my local town's carnival when I was little. My dad scared him poopless afterwards.

36. Skywarps: credits or no? State your case.

Yes it's a coaster. That launch is really a thing. And it's so bad that it deserves to be honored as a contender for the worst coaster. No one cares about the world's worst flat ride.

37. Turkey legs: nah or yaaaaassssss?

From Dollywood, yes. Their's actually tastes like turkey. From anywhere else, no way because they usually taste like pork.

38. What is the most recent B&M that you rode?

SFDK's Medusa

39. You can eat nothing but corn dogs, churros or funnel cake for the next 48 hours, which do you choose?

Hope it's Ash Wednesday or Good Friday and I have to fast anyway.

40. Post a great on-ride shot of you from 2018.
