Re: You know you're obssesed with parks/coasters when.....

Sorry I meant to post this in the other forum. Yesterday I was looking at the grassy area in the quad of the school that I go to. Of course I'm supposed to be thinking about passing tests, and being social and chasing girls but instead I found myself sitting on a bench imagining how many rides could...

Re: Rye Playland over amusement park’s head scarf ban

It's ridiculous it even got to the point of a near riot. People have got to realize that they can't use religion as an excuse to do whatever the hell they want.

You know you're obssesed with parks/coasters when.....

Do you guys ever see a big empty lot and/or grassy area and wonder how many rides/coasters could fit inside of it or is it just me that does this?

Re: 2012....So What Are We Getting?

How bout that coaster that is supposed to replace BBW, I think that is supposed to open in 12. I know they have started construction.

Who knows, maybe 2012 will be the year of the Flying Turns?

Hersheypark has a great street view and I think they just got done shooting that at CP.

Re: Vonage phone

How long have you had Vonage? It may not be them but I've heard mixed reviews on their service. Most likely it's the router. I hate netgear, had one for a month, it was constantly dropping connections, wired and wireless. Buy a cisco/linksys.

Re: questions for the seasoned/experienced riders

My coaster count is around 63, so I'm not anywhere near many other enthusiasts but I'll give you my two cents anyway. Inverts-I've ridden Talon, Raptor, Great Bear, Alpie, Batman(Gadv). I think Batman is overrated in the enthusiast community-My favorite is definitely Alpie. Great Bear doesn't seem t...

Re: A Wonderful Day at Hersheypark!

I love superdooperlooper as well. Whats even better is that SDL and LR almost never have longer than 5-10 minute waits.

Re: Six Flags Over Gorgia Pictures Are Up!

Great TR. I spend more time wondering how it must feel to ride acro then any other ride. How does a person not destroy certain body parts?

3 1/2 hours at Knoebels

I try to get to Knoebels at least once every two weeks if not every week, usually there isn't much different then the week before. But last week, at the Flying Turns, they had put up a TV and small sign that says "Flying Turns Update". The video consists of a POV of and some dialogue saying that the...
