  1. The problem with the line for Firehawk is that it's too hot. When the sun is beating down on you it's miserable.

    Pick a cloudy day to go then.

    What a great solution. <_<

    Cloudy skies will keep the quests away.

    (Bolded for emphasis.)

    Good. Wouldn't want any questing going on, would we. :P

    Back to the topic at hand,

    I'd also add that we should be VERY thankful that Firehawk isn't right at the front of the park (and the first coaster you see entering the front gates) like Nighthawk is. Vekoma flying coasters lines move very slowly, but I guess that's to be expected when you're dealing with those types of restraints.

    Sure, we don't have a Flying Dutchman at the front of the park- we've just got a Vekoma Invertigo up there that I'd wager a guess as having even worse capacity. (Can't seem to find cold, hard facts to back this up, so take it with a grain of salt; anybody know of a pph for Invertigo?) I don't mean to smash your point; I'm just sayin'. :)

  2. ^^ Okay. I would have done that originally; however, I have been on forums where it was considered a ban-able offense to drag up threads that were years old. This is my fault; I should have checked with the ToS first.



    I feel exceptionally stupid right now. Sorry, everyone.

  3. ^^ Honestly, Interpreter, I had good intentions with this. I really, really don't want to stir up that whole overdone argument again. I'm really sorry; it's obvious this is going to irritate the living crap out of everyone just with the title alone. Please lock it, somebody.


    I found a video of Beast's first drop without the skid brakes. Or any brakes, for that matter.

    Those of who who've fought The Beast brake battle here on KIC know the significance of this. (I know how this affects it since I'm a lurker.  :D ) Go to

    , and watch the video, starting at 1:35. (Yes, I know, the title says it's a video of The Bat, but it has lots of footage of other rides.) Before that point, you can see Beast operating with 4-bench cars. After that point, you get a complete, clear front row POV of the first drop... which is skidless.

    I don't mean to reignite the whole brake argument, but I'm pretty sure I've seen the whole of the major brake threads, and this video, to my knowledge, was never presented. So, if this helpful, enjoy! And if it isn't helpful, sorry to waste your time!


  5. If nothing else, CF needs to pop out $500 and give FD a paint job, even if it's the same color. Seriously. If they're throwing seatbelts onto everything this year to give riders a psychological calming effect, then they should keep the paint up to date so the portion of the public that's afraid of roller coasters because of Final Destination 3 don't think the track on FD's going to break apart as they ride it.

  6. IJST and FOF have rolled back before, SOB, Face/off and Beast have valleyed before.

    Where would Beast valley? The only place I could think of would be anywhere between the second tunnel and the second lift. The second time through the helix seems possible, but just slightly.

  7. ^haha. I did have fun :P

    I told her she's gonna have to take me through CornStalkers first cause I wanna rawr back at the scareactors if it's as crappalicious as the video.  :lol:

    While I hate the quality in all those videos cause of the crappy night vision and complaining/talking in the backgrounds on the filmers part, that is rude. I actually like Cornstalkers this year, as some other people do as well, not everyone obviously, people have different taste.

    I'm sorry, I didn't read enough of this forum to realize, at the very least, that there are a lot of scareactors on here. I didn't mean to be rude at all, and I sincerely apologize to anyone and everyone I have offended.

  8. ^Ah, yes, I forgot about SR&R. That one's definitely a no-go for me.

    Personally, SoB isn't a TERRIBLE ride- I just never find myself asking my friends if they want to get on it with me. I just force someone to sit in the front seat with me so I'll be conscious for the rest of our time at KI. SoB's daddy, though... I drag EVERYONE with me into the back car. :lol:

  9. To anyone who went to HH already, was this year's CornStalkers any better than TOPGUN1993's YouTube video experience from last year?


    Cause a friend of mine that told me that she's going to make me go through a couple of the Haunts (and I HATE Halloween), and I told her she's gonna have to take me through CornStalkers first cause I wanna rawr back at the scareactors if it's as crappalicious as the video.  :lol:

  10. crypt.......guys you would aggree with me on that :unsure:

    Ohh Come on the Crypt is awesome! I've been in many a more painful restraint then Crypt.

    your also like 10. and its different for younger kids than older people. i used to ride it untill........nvm

    12, and I'd still ride it no matter the restraint.

    sorry. and mabye you will but me and alot of my other friends wont cayse it hurts way to badly.

    I'm 16 AND male, and I do just fine on The Crypt. Just make sure you pull the restraint down as far as it will comfortably go and you should have no issues (unless you're REALLY skinny, in which case I wouldn't suggest riding it). Leaving room for you to move around under that restraint gives that little crotch-assassin bump on the bottom of the restrain the chance to attack every time the vehicle suddenly locks.

    (By the way, hi everyone!)
