  1. I have a feeling that coaster stats =/= ride experience, especially with this one. I think that wave turn out of the first drop will be nuts and the whole ride will be fast and forceful with plenty of elements that KI hasn't seen before.
  2. I was only 5 or 6 when it went in but I remember all the hype, and seeing the track-looked amazing. I remember thinking how cool it was that each car was its own little pod. Unfortunately earned the label as unsafe due to being closed all the time.
  3. I had the same idea-except instead of straight up and a slow coast over the top, it would be a launch into a ginormous floater hill and then land you on the other side of the park. Could be out and back, or have 2 stations on either side of the park-each one a 'portal' to the other side.
  4. All I know is that a ground-up RMC that went through the woods would be universally embraced.
  5. The cards take away spontaneity but they also ensure at least a 5$ outlay whether you spend it or not-plus having to get a card encourages you to 'make it worth it' by loading more on than you would for a random game. And you can use your CC to load money on which allows for a more frivolous attitude and a more liquid transaction (likely with higher amounts). Add in the loss prevention and elimination of administrative hassles and I'm sure it's worth it. It does get away from the spirit of carnival games but as long as there are nagging kids or show-offs, there will always be a market.
  6. My kids always want to play games, and the fact that you need to mess with the cards is #1 excuse not to.
  7. Ton answer the OP-Adventure Express was a severe let down at the time
  8. I'd rather they open up a new path to Xbase here:
  9. Hope you're right...this is definitely what it seems like.. And MF may be my favorite coaster ever.
  10. I like the ring of the name, but i have trouble getting over the fact that Orion is the most prominent WINTER constellation...now if this fact makes them want to run that baby for winterfest then I'm totally down ;-)

    ^This. A special day like this it really makes me grateful for what we've gotten in a relatively short window of time. In my youth (old man alert), we had the Cobra, The Beast, The Vortex and the The Racer. That was it. The park then endured 2 decades of limited additions before we got DB 10 years ago. Over the past decade we've seen three heady coasters go up and tonight we'll officially be getting a 4th. Not many in the nation can just roll up to a park of this caliber for some after work rides like we do.

    Just want to make sure it's been discussed that Brezhnev, Bruce, Lester Bangs, and Bernstein are all mentioned in REMs classic tune: TEOTWAWKI

    Next Thursday is a full moon-hopefully it'll be a nice clear night.

    I know most of the project has been revealed via the blueprints, etc.....but I can't help thinking that in the name of alien conspiracies, coverups and disinformation that some of it may have been purposely misleading. Would be awesome.
  15. Not sure about the inside props-but the snail (as well as the elephant from the old fountain) are at Jungle Jims in Fairfield
