Re: Carowinds Intimidator

So what happens when CP announces their new ride and it's also called Intimidator?

It does look good though but it's hard to tell if it's gonna be "just another B&M hyper" or if it will be unique compared to the others.

Re: An Evening At Coney Island Photos Are Now Up

Awesome trip report. Describing that evening as a religious experience truly are the perfect words for it. I'm hoping to read up on more of the history of that place for the next time I go there. However, I knew that the world's first rollercoaster once stood there and that was enough for me to be i...

Re: How Do You Count Racers?

I was always very modest with my count and never counted any racers or duelers twice. To me if it was one station it was one coaster. I had considered counting duelers as 2 but never wanted to since I had already made rebel yell my 100th and counting Lightning Racer as 2 would screw that up. However...

Re: Coaster Con 2010

never been to Kennywood? Blashpemy! lol :)

It's truly a gem of a park and they always hold a great regional event (my second favorite ACE event next to coastercon) so I imagine coastercon there will just be incredible.

Needless to say...I'm not missing this one.

Re: Kennywood's Getting A New Coaster!!!

Not only does the new ride look impressive...but I'm impressed that Kennywood plans to bring the Turnpike back in the near future...it's always a shame to see good rides go when new ones are brought in. This won't be one i've those situations, however, so kudos to KW!

Re: I wanna ride but the heights of rides scare me

My fear of heights kinda just went away with time...altho I never really had a fear of heights while riding because I knew I was strapped in and completely safe. Aside from this I do get a little nervous near the edge of a bridge or so but after numerous times of climbing around on top of the greenh...

Re: Silver Dollar City / July 2009

wow that is awesome. I had my first visit to SDC during the ACE convention and it became an instant favorite. Its great to see a park that knows the true meaning of guest satisfaction. If I were to open my own park, SDC would be the first place I would go to take notes.
