  1. I also had a rollercoaster dream last night. All Cedar Fair parks were either to get a B&M giga or an RMC but nobody would ever have both. What a sad dream! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Can't wait to read everyone's favorites! I've always been into coasters but I'd say the obsession really started around 2012/2013. Since then I've been on a mission to find the best coasters in the world so I'm always curious of other's Top 10. My current coaster count is around 60. I've been to Kings Island, Cedar Point, Carowinds, King's Dominion, Dollywood (lightening rod was down so it's not on the list), Busch Gardens Tampa, Universal FL both sides, Holiday World and Geauga Lake. It's really hard for me to narrow it to ten because I have a lot of ties. Honorable mention: Thunderhead at Dollywood Unpopular opinion but I loved this ride. Only got to ride it once though. 10: Banshee 9: Kumba at BGT. She doesn't look like much but wow this coaster is amazing! 8: Millennium Force. Yes, it's not incredibly high on my list. That is in part because this coaster was so overhyped to me that once I actually rode it, I was kind of disappointed. Still makes this list though! 7: Intimidator 305. Only ride to ever make me gray out. This one moves around my top ten quite often. Usually somewhere between 7-10. Also a disappointment because people had told me "it's like maverick and millennium!" It wasn't... 6: Dragon Challenge at Universal (RIP). Only got one ride but it was fantastic 5: Twisted Timbers at Kings Dominion. 4: Fury 325 3: Top Thrill Dragster. I don't get intimidated by coasters generally speaking but this thing is just on a whole new level! Waiting for that launch and then flying down the track at warped speed. It's an experience you can't find many places and you just have to ride it to understand. Finally tied for 1&2: Maverick and Steel Vengeance both at Cedar Point. Y'all probably think I'm crazy for the tie so let me explain. Maverick holds a special place in my heart. I lived four hours from CP the first time I went. We got in the park just to find out nearly every ride was down due to wind. I was dying to ride MF, GateKeeper and TTD! Maverick was one of the only things open so we waited for that. I kept looking at how small it was in comparison to everything else. People in line were watching for MF to open up and said they'd jump out of line and run over there if they saw trains running. So at that point my expectations for Mav were LOW. Then my mind was blown! I had never experienced a 90 degree drop let alone 95. The snappy banked turns and fluidity of the inversions has me amazed. Then the launch in the tunnel...just wow. Once we hit the brake run I just started laughing uncontrollably. And it was totally worth that four hour drive just for that one ride! (I kept the ride pic too!) And then SV. I had high expectations, I was NOT disappointed! I just don't have a great story like I do for maverick. However I will say Steel Vengeance has the best inversions I've ever experienced!
  3. quick side note as I see some people posting about their top 10. Is there a thread for discussing our "coaster lists?" I'd love to read that! Edit: @McSalsa started a thread for this over in the "Polls" topic. Go take a look and add your thoughts!
  4. I agree. They are subjective! I wasn't impressed with I305 but I love maverick. People told me I305 was like a MF and Mav hybrid but I didn't feel that way. It's interesting how many different opinions there are on the same ride. I also think your expectations have a decent impact on your overall opinion of the ride. At least that has been the case for me
  5. Currently waiting to get on the train. A mom behind me points out Mystic Timbers to her son and says "that's The Beast, wanna do The Beast?" Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. The height and speed are amazing. I felt the ride was over way too fast and the layout was just mediocre. Fury didn't feel as intense to me but the layout was much more enjoyable. Both great rides. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Very intense. My only gray out ever. Other than the intensity from the first drop and banked turn I honestly found it quite boring. Just personal opinion Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. and with this layout, that's probably what the general public will think as well. Just doesn't seem like a good move Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Yes and also it's labeled MC instead of...WC? Not sure on wing coaster code Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Isn't backbone the piece connected to the drop that goes straight down? I don't see that on any pictures of Valravn. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I'm gonna say it again, is it possible the leaked docs were just one of the ideas they had for Project X and is maybe not the final version? It seems odd, if it is a giga, that it would be so short. (It looks about the same length as Diamondback to me...could be wrong). It also seems strange that the original poster would leak them, delete them and then openly tell people they signed an NDA. CoasterMeg being a skeptic
  12. I know pretty much nothing about this kind of stuff but could that blueprint be a layout KI started off with but decided to scrap. Kinda like a rough draft? Not saying it is, just wondering about the possibility
  13. I agree with you. I think it's okay to be disappointed. Doesn't mean I'm not going to ride it. Doesn't mean I'm not going to love it. It could end up being me favorite in the park. That said, having rode Fury I was hoping for something of that magnitude. So yeah, I'll be a little disappointed.
  14. If we can't see the screen shots of the PDF could a user who saw it at least draw us up a version of the layout like the one above?
  15. Maybe none of this is making sense because B&M is doing something we've never seen before.
