That really is one of the dumbest post I've seen on here in a while. . . And that's saying something.


Wow I really need to read the Cedar Point thread more often. :lol:

It's better than the Darien Lake thread at least. Some people in the CP thread love and respect the park for what it is and offer really good advice....and then there are the coasterboys....

Sounds like every thread/park though really. There are a LOT of people who provide REALLY good advice... but there will always be the coasterboys...

That's fair. Even the Dollywood thread gets its obnoxious fanboys.

I've heard that Knoebels fans are pretty good though!

The Knoebels thread is perfect, just like the park.

SMDH... I mean, if that were the case, why even put seat belts on the coaster to begin with?

^ Actually I've heard somewhere that certain rides mostly use the seat belts to make sure that the riders fit to avoid another NTxG-type incident* more than as a backup if the lapbar fails. Someone fact-check me on that.

*For those of you who don't know, in 2013 a lady was ejected from New Texas Giant since her body was far too large for the train, tragically causing her death. She should never have been put on the ride to begin with.
