Re: Holiwood Nights 2015

I'm really glad we ran into each other at Legend. It's been way too long since we've gotten to ride together. And good lord, when did Bond get taller than me?!

Re: Coaster Trip Report Music Videos

I did kind of a music video of our 2010 coaster season when Nick and I did a lot of traveling.

Is that kind of like what you were meaning?

Re: 2014 Wish List

I'm hoping for Knoebels, Dorney and Coney Island, as well as Coaster Con (NorCal). I think DW is a given, considering I live a whopping 5 minutes from the front gate. Would love to get down to FL as well, but I'll be picking up the Fun Spot credits in November.

Re: Why are so many enthusiasts gay?

I think you guys have all brought up valid points. I think the higher proportion of gay men and women may have a lot to do with the fact that before sites like this one, it was harder to meet up with like-minded people and so many hetero couples met outside the enthusiast world. I know LOTS of would...

Re: The New Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster ,Would You Ride?

Ober Gatlinburg offers much, much more than just the alpine slide, so I highly doubt it will go anywhere. They do most of their business in the winter anyway, when they make oodles of snow and everyone goes there to ski and snowboard. They also have the aerial tramway which makes them a very visible...

Re: Kings Island Banshee 2014

This makes me look forward even more to Spring Con next year! I'm betting there will be some ERT involved. :) I plan to be there for opening day - as I was for Diamondback. This will be the third coaster I've watched from start to finish at Kings Island - sadly, it replaced the first coaster I ever ...

Re: The New Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster ,Would You Ride?

I have this history with it being a pain to get the closest credits to me. For example: I never rode Screechin' Eagle at Americana even though I lived 30 minutes away from it my entire childhood. It took me until 2009 to get Stricker's Grove, about an hour away from where I grew up. It took me until...

Re: The New Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster ,Would You Ride?

I still haven't ridden it yet. The car-buying process has been MUCH more time consuming than I expected. Good news is we're in the final stages of that and I should be driving my new 2013 Chevy Equinox soon. :) Bad news is it's still stealing all my post-work time and it will be at least next week b...

Re: 2014 Rumors New Coasters and attractions all over the wo

Don't forget there are still a handful of nice Beemers sitting in Myrtle Beach. I bet one of those would fit nicely into the landscape at SFStL.

Re: Netflix...what are you watching?

I've been on a historical kick lately. Watched a few episodes of the Tudors (I believe it was an HBO series?) but got bored with it quickly as it's just the life of Henry VIII. Then watched the newer release of Vanity Fair. Going through the 80's version of Pride and Prejudice right now. I read abou...

Re: The New Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster ,Would You Ride?

My co-supervisor rode it yesterday and I'll be riding it either today or tomorrow! I'll be sure to give a full report once I've experienced it myself. :) It's less than 5 minutes from where I work.
