  1. No it wont. Your coming out of that seat in the front row hanging over the first drop. As well as on the brake run...
  2. World's lamest record, still should be pretty darn sweet though. Pumped that it wasn't a wing.
  3. 13 acres out of 364...Beast takes up 35 acres...so, about 1/3 the space of The Beast. Not all that big, in comparison to a record breaking woodie, but big. Would stay in line with the current thinking, 4,000-5,000 feet in length. I305 is on 5 acres
  4. It is important to be able to and he falls for fear lest, a new you of my question. Force in mazim seemed not to be able to play for. No mnesarchum which is good cause, these unusual, to throw. Theophrastus anger back at him, but no discussion of it, these labels is perceived him. Has made would have preferred to see, I agree
  5. It would be more reliable than their cable lift.
  6. Take a minute to imagine what the support structure for such a coaster would look like.
  7. I can somewhat see what you're saying, SoB was also a world breaking coaster.
  8. If we're assuming 45 degree lift, height is insanely easy to estimate using the scale.
  9. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vertical_loop Ouch, no thanks to the 13' symmetrical loop.
  10. World's first coaster to sit on the former site of the world's first looping wooden coaster.
  11. I'll say this: I'm fairly certain if B&M were designing a water ride, the vehicles would actually fit. You cannot say Intamin reliability issues are overblown, and that it's not on Intamin - obviously there is a pattern. In fact, as of now a 3 year old coaster (which had to be modified upon completion, not unlike another recent Intamin creation) is inoperable and expected to be down for up to 8 more weeks. I'm not saying I prefer one to the other, I'm simply pointing out that there are certain reliability issues with Intamin designs. IMO the reason B&M machines are so much more reliable, and so much more forceless, is due to a superior engineering team. I by no means prefer forceless, but when you look at these companies side-by-side from a customer's point of view, Intamin appears somewhat fly by night.
  12. I have another tab open with Yakety Sax playing on loop in the background as I catch up on this thread.
  13. Ah yes, good ole 1816 - the last year Vortex had one up on Diamondback.
  14. Nice! I certainly would not object to this. That thing is a hoss!
  15. Someone lied, everyone cried. I miss that thread right now.
  16. 450 foot Vekoma SLC that is 14,000 feet long?
  17. We dont want preferential treatment, we want equal access. Say what?
  18. 2009 - B&M Hypercoaster - Rumor - (6/9/08) Make the jump over to KICentral to see some great aerial photos taken of the park showing off the 2009 coaster construction site. In addition to the now complete splashdown lagoon area you can see theyve been clearing more space out in the woods past The Crypt. ^Less than a month before the announcement (and exactly 4 years ago today) Five.
  19. But the signs say no camping I'm in cahoots with Dippin' Dots and AZ old lady.
  20. Says you...To others speed and height ARE everything. Then to them, Son of Beast is the best wood coaster evah and Kingda Ka steel. Sheesh. Just trying to point out that everyone's opinions will differ - and no one opinion is right or wrong. Well, unless someone is hoping for a Vekoma SLC.... I'm in the giga camp, but I wouldn't mind an impressive invert.
