Re: New for 2013: Outlaw Run at Silver Dollar City

Complete inversions with NO headrests! *like* It's been a while since we have been able to do that...

Let's hope the lap bars are winners... RMC seems to know their stuff :mrgreen:

Re: Happy Halloween Weekends @ Holiday World - 2012.10.13

They played the Misfits!?!?? :shock: I like that, alot - but I'm also very surprised. Do you remember which song? I assume "Halloween" - but if they looked at the lyrics - I wouldda thunk that is a bit much for Holiday World.

Re: Smoothed out Cyclone

Just a heads up to those who don't notice/aren't aware... The profile has been changed on the Cyclone's first drop. Re-tracking and re-profiling are 2 completely different things. Re-tracking is putting on new track while re-profiling is changing the shape of the track. They have done both to the Cy...

Re: Happy Halloween Weekends @ Holiday World - 2012.10.13

Great TP John! Where do they have Holidog's 3D adventure set up? I'm bummed to see Legend was closed; I'm kinda surprised actually. That's my favorite at the park ;) I was pleasently surprised to hear the Theme from Halloween in their laser show! Is that light-up "Thanks for visiting our parks!" sig...

Re: What's the real reason?

^Yes, true. Anton was the premium steel coaster builder - hence why we have so few of his rides. All his coasters are full of hinges/joints and the whole system flexes; whereas an Arrow is completely welded together - so WE absorb all the vibration and shock. Not to mention the hollow fiberglass car...

Re: What's the real reason?

Demon ain't goin anywhere :evil: Yes it's rough. Just in the last 2 weeks, shocks were replaced in most of the seats and it's markedly smoother than it was earlier in the summer. Same thing 3 years ago; yellow had new everything, but deteriorated over a year or so. There are going to be newer (most ...

Re: What's the real reason?

For instance if Six Flags Great America hired GCI to recreate the Riverview Bobs people in Chicago would go nuts to be able to ride a recreation of that beloved coaster. I used to think the same thing, Paul. But the opportunity for that is less and less; before Southwest Territory - they did consid...

Re: Daredevil Daze Pictures Are Now Up

^I like a balance of intensity, excitement and ride-ability. I think something like I-305 was all intensity - but no excitement. I'm no wimp - I can handle the ride - it's just not worth the work out, as there is no excitement on that for me. Voyage is my prime example of the fine line; it's super i...
