  1. Logged on to this website for the first time in years today. Did not expect any notifications. Much less somebody quoting a comment I wrote when I was 10. Thanks for the awesome surprise lmao
  2. I was just at Cedar Point: guy: Isn't mean streak like really, really old? me: no, that's blue streak... guy: No it's mean streak. the one in the back right? me: well yeah, but mean streak was built in the 90s... guy: No, I think you're wrong. That other one, gemini was built in the 90s. me: no it wasn't... guy: Yeah it was! girl who I was with: no it wasn't, we were here for gemini's 30th birthday last year. guy: Dude. That was mean streak. Get your facts right. *walks away* ...needless to say-- well, no, actually, if it's needless to say then I just won't say it. -vl2 *edit* So
  3. I'd like to see them expand x-base, and (in my opinion) intamin track looks kind of experimental, so I'd be fine with an intamin over by Firehawk and Flight of Fear. and maybe a restaurant, some flat rides, a vending machine...
  4. just remembered this, from a while ago at Cedar Point: somebody asked me how many times disastor transport goes upside down. So I politely answered them. "6." Don't worry, I corrected myself...
  5. don't they need the mid ride breaks for the blocking system?
  6. I only trust wikipedia if it has a source. if it doesnt its just fun to read, so why delete it?
  7. It does that for safety reasons. The next train isn't always out of the next block yet, so it stops on the lift. I'd only be scared if it stops doing this. as for the part about it being rusty and faded... it used to be painted red... somewhat near the color of rust... plus, is there any chain lifted roller coaster that doesn't creak on the lift? also it's kind of hard to effectively take care of a ride by arrow... as has been pointed out earlier in this thread....
  8. I hate it when people do that thing about one motor per train. Somebody even went as far to say "that's what's clinking on the lift hill" once.
  9. I've ridden Iron Dragon, and, as a result, I will NEVER complain about Flight Deck again...... odd, my thought exactly.
  10. right, I forgot it was arrow who built it. For some reason I always think it's Vekoma. Anyways,it's odd you would say b&m invert after my comment, because that's exactly what I was thinking. but again, why couldn't they get s&s to do it. I mean, (and I could be mistaken, because I'm working off of memory here) they still support X, don't they? I think that was arrow and s&s anyways...
  11. If I were them I'd move it to x-base, expand that area, and put something more thrilling where it is now. It would be sad if it was gone though, seeing as it's much better than iron dragon, and still kinda fun... but then again, I have never said ANY roller coaster isn't fun, so...
  12. at Cedar Point yesterday: disaster transport: (random guy in line): oh yeah, this ride is completely dark. No lights at all. You can't see ANYTHING. And it goes upside down. 10 times. (random girl behind us in line): No it's not a roller coaster. Yeah, it's like tomb raider at Kings Island. (I burst out laughing) Dragster: (guy points at top): OMG! THAT GIRL JUST FELL OUT! Other random things that happened: (random guy): The clinking on the hill is the train's motor. (little girl, probably about 6) [wearing shirt that says "life is better blond"]
  13. no, I mean in the video window- the diagonal bars that show the video is loading. anyways, for those of you that the videos still aren't working for, I found the POV on youtube. have fun =]
  14. well, on mine, the videos have had those green diagonal bars going across the bottom for an hour now, and they aren't loading... and I have a pretty good computer, and firefox 3, so I have no idea what the problem is.
