I wonder how many of the general public who drive by the park and notice the coaster testing think that the park is open.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

The second perspective was really cool. I would like to see a few other views of the coaster.

I get wet for Manta!

I recorded the testing on the webcam.

Dude I hate to do this (actually dont hate it that much) but you didnt record CRAP! All you did was steal this from wormy on youtube (who posted it the day before you) and are now posting as if you did the recording. You did the exact same thing to his own personal recording of the very first test run of intimidator and posted it to your site as if you are the provider of the video. This is the kinda stuff that really makes people want to watermark their videos to hell in fear some silly kid like yourself will steal it and market it as if you did the video!


Wormy's original webcam video...




wormy's original first test run video that YOU TOOK!


EVERYONE on youtube be leary of this video stealing guy!

I eat bugs.

So you're accusing him of stealing the video yet the two videos you posted are totally different?

^^Um yeah. :?r

He posted his OWN version of the Web cam recording and added his song to it and uploaded it in sequence to youtube, similar to what Wormy did.

If you paid attention to the two videos, you could see that the video is not the same as Wormy's.

He probably did not even know that video existed before he uploaded it...

Anyhoo! I hope that it does speed up as the paint wears off an the wheels get rolling as well. I cant wait to see it when it really gets rolling!

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!

This coaster is gonna be sweet when it's broken in. I also think it will get better with age, probably 10 years from now it will be even better. Thanks for the footage!

I'm with jarmor here. It's pretty obvious to me that cooliocody12 just ripped Wormy's video off Youtube, cropped it, added some music and an intro, and re-uploaded it.

1) Look at the timestamps on Youtube. Wormy's was uploaded February 7th. Cooliocody12 uploaded his on February 8th. Does this mean that cooliocody12 took the video from Wormy? No. But it does show that the inverse isn't true.
2) The mouse, a black one, not the standard one, is at the exact same point on the screen, to the right of that green ride. (I presume it's a ride)
3) As the train is going up the lift hill, two white trucks can be seen going along the highway in the background. They are traveling from right to left, and at the 5-second mark of Wormy's video, the first one passes behind the white building that is behind the lift hill. The same two white trucks do the exact same thing in cooliocody12's video, except two seconds later due to the intro that he added. The train is at the exact same spot on the lift hill.
4) The quality of cooliocody12's video is noticeably less than Wormy's, almost certainly because he ripped it and then published it again, leading to a loss of data.

I found another reference point as the train comes over the last hill into the brake run, but everything else so conclusively points to cooliocody12 falsely taking credit for the video that I didn't even bother to include it. By the way jarmor, your avatar creeps me out.
