  1. Are we talking about now, or back in the day?
  2. Very jealous I didn't get to partake, it looked like a nice turn from the standard park fare... Hope it returns in the future...
  3. I'd wager a Blue Ice Cream that there isn't. KI has a lot to offer, and I could see it being a few years before they add something that costly to the lineup. This year hasn't exactly been a great one from a profit standpoint, and I did recall hearing something about them just getting a fairly pricey coaster recently... I think if they do get a dive, it'd be a bit farther out than 2022...
  4. I think if you're going off of 'significance on the amusement and theme park industry' I'd have to go with The Racer... I think a lot of people are answering different questions though...
  5. This is true... I'd be down for buying an old wheel or brake pad that's outlived it's service life and is destined for the dumpster...
  6. I'd rather see RMC do something build something from scratch than to modify one of the existing coasters at KI...
  7. Ya, they're good because the Intamin ones break down too often
  8. Very sad... I hope they get to the root cause and put things in place to prevent events like this in the future...
  9. I personally go by the drop... If you take MF and bury the whole thing underground, it's still a giga to me...
  10. The one at CW isn't that popular with the GP... In a typical cycle, it's rare to look at the scoreboard and see more than half a dozen of the seats get a single full rotation, or more than 2 get double digits... This is purely due to the riders, not the cycle... Doesn't help that they lessened how far the wings go to make it harder to rotate due to a few people getting crazy high rotations... The average rider though just moves the wings around like a bird thrown out of the nest for the first time... The end result is that very few people give it a second go due to a disappointing first
  11. I'd like to not see the train renamed 'THE SNAK EXPRESS' with 'BROUGHT TO YOU BY SLIM JIM' written on the engine...
  12. Manufacturer is not the same as Installer... To the government there is a very large difference between buying a coaster elsewhere, importing it, and having it installed by Canadians, and bringing foreign workers in to the country to build it... And the crux of the issue is that (apparently) RMC wants to do the install... For the record, I have no idea how true this is...
  13. Technically correct... But loopholes/exemptions do exist... How easy/hard to get, I am unsure... Maybe it's darn hard, maybe it's just a matter of filing the right paperwork and explaining "we wanna buy this and we can't get it here"... The law exists (on both sides of the border) to protect local jobs... If you live in Detroit, you can't hire a carpenter from Windsor to build your new deck just because he's cheaper and vice versa... It's why the border agent asks "Purpose of your visit"... If you say 'work' they're going to have a lot more questions and need to see some paperwork...
  14. I think if they wanted to sell the land to condo developers for a cash influx, they would have done that with the land the hospital is being built on, nor would they be looking at building a hotel by Rutherford road.
