Re: Daredevil Daze 2012

Snap! Had I known/remembered there was going to be a group pic, I would have been there :) After running back and forth to Ninja with bubba Gump, I sat my big butt down and Boss and didn't wanna get up. I was winded and beat. And Boss was so darn good, I couldn't figure out why only 5 of us were the...

Re: Worlds Of Fun 1989/90

Great pics Billy. I had to laugh when I saw that it was ranked #2 by Inside Track. The guy behind that publication got ran out of the community for taking folks cash and then never putting out a magazine. Well... that was perhaps one point of view of what happened. There is always more to the story...

Worlds Of Fun 1989/90

Timberwolf *really* srsly, no joke, probably the best ride in the world when it was built. It quickly went down hill. My first ride was at night... not many reports had been out yet (remember, this was before the internet). So when me and my aunt got in the back seat and went down the first drop - w...

Re: Daredevil Daze 2012

Ah yes that smarts! Brings back memories of little bruises on my sides! I have a friend, Rob, who is slowly becoming a coaster geek, and I'm trying to ween him from sticking out those elbows. He doesn't get coaster riding yet. He still thinks I'm trying to "smoosh" him on fast curves (such as Viper ...

Aha! Elbows of steel! I would have thought they should be pointed inward?

Re: Alabama Adventure

^You bet! Knoebel's rocks, but in a very unassuming way. There are only 2 coasters (plus a kiddie coaster) and they are NOT the full-throttle/vicious machines that Holiday World has. They are much more laid back, but a ton-o-fun. No seat belts, too :) There is so much *charm* in that park, it's hard...

Re: Daredevil Daze 2012

With the exception of Timber Wolf. I dont know what they are thinking with that coaster lol! That was the single best roller coaster I ever rode. In April, 1989 :shock: It was very quickly rated #1 in the world. Went back in 1990 and some re-profiling (2nd drop) and brakes were added. It was still ...

Re: Daredevil Daze 2012

^Unfortunately, it's at a Six Flags park. I always said that about Viper - it's at a SF park AND it's a stupid/annoying (even RUDE) walk to and from the ride. Up until last Oct, American Eagle was a top 10 ride for me. It's back to it's old ways this year. There was a period where it was stellar - b...

Re: Daredevil Daze 2012

Whats up with Boss? How can such a huge fast and aggressive woodie run so well?? It's still could use some rubber pads at the chassis/seat joint (is that possible on a Gerstlauer? Are they already there?), but I couldn't believe how non-painful it was. I heard people complaining about it, but I foun...

Re: Alabama Adventure

I had the opportunity to go to Alabama Adventure last summer, but blew it off. I was spending time at SFOG (well... the Mind Bender anyway) and I decided to skip the solo-drive to Alabama. Darnit!

Re: Demolition of SOB has began

Good riddance. I hope they dig out the crappy Premier trains and use them as wrecking balls. They did that at Riverview in 1968 :( That would be cool for that SOB, though. Unfortunately, Cedar Fair is way too much about CONTROL. I'm surprised they released video of Space Spiral and other destructio...

Re: Daredevil Daze 2012

Very sketchy. I wasn't aware that the Sky Screamer sped up when it got to the top. Definitely cool but very *thrilling* and scary as crap for a split second :shock:

Nah... I saw you *really* scared on Sky Screamer :shock: (Not that I wasn't holding on for dear life and sweating myself.)
