  1. the technology is not there to launch it over the top hat with lsms in the current amount of space
  2. Aren't their cheap passes just for one park and the pass to get into all parks was around the same cost of a gold membership?
  3. lol. Got to ride maxx forceless last month, was disappointed in the launch personally. The snappiest launch I have experienced is xcelerator while maxx forceless looks better on paper.
  4. yes a couple years ago, what about the millions that has ridden it? Also pre existing conditions probably is a cause
  5. it's been around forever. They dialed up the launch a little bit a couple years ago for the record.
  6. To many moving parts there is no way around that. You won't see anymore large compressed air launces anymore either. I am sure if intamin built a 200' hydraulic launch today similar to maxx force uptime would be high. Gemini would had been torn down if intamin didn't invent the hydraulic launch. LSM technology has improved so much. They are using I believe 6th generation stators from a company in Germany today.
  7. or rides that were 20 years ahead of its time. Technology has still not caught up with ttd.
  8. Probably trying to sell tickets/passes and still not open till next spring. They waited this long, why open it in the fall? If any ride would open in the fall it would be at BGT IMO.
  9. There was an article last year or before last when TTD had extensive refurbishment and I believe the article quoted a engineering/manufacturing company out of Dayton I believe.
  10. Why did the rest of the accelerator coasters continue to run? If you don't change brake pads/rotors and it explodes is it on you or the manufacturer?
  11. Don't CF have a company in Ohio reverse engineering parts for TTD among others???
  12. millenium flyers are too bulky as well as timberliners IMO. No need for the articulation anyways.
  13. and now the Columbus dispatch https://www.dispatch.com/story/news/columns/2021/08/22/cedar-point-park-officials-mum-seriously-injured-guest/8148324002/ Media should know by now that Tony Clark only speaks when things are going great.
  14. I feel the maintenance or lack there of is a good story.
  15. Maybe because all the other Intamin Accelerator coasters never shut down after the incident. Looks as if CP is at fault.
  16. https://sanduskyregister.com/news/338320/cedar-point-fails-to-inform/ Cedar Point is losing trust with their hometown newspaper.
  17. Why the dig? Obviously it is parks' maintenance problems.
  18. I'm all for pay extra and 20bucks is nothing to thin out the lines. We got lucky and went with a park hopper ticket to Disney world a couple weeks ago and did everything at all 4 parks in 3 days. Each day lines were non existent in the evenings after big storms in the afternoons.
  19. "I worked alongside my father and he always taught me, it's the Good Samaritan act," Zinni said. "If you're at a place and you see something happen, you go and help." She is not seeking any attention.
