Re: Trip Report: Lita Ford, Poison and Def Leppard

I was there with a friend (Laura) who was his wife's cousin. We met up in LA to go to a Blondie gig, it was summer 1999. She knew the Blondies and other folks in rock n roll. I was driving her and a friend to the airport and she wanted to swing by "their" (Rick Allen's) house on the way there. It wa...

Re: Which coaster would you hand build?

Does it have to be a kiddie coaster?

I would pick plenty of rides to build, but I'll have to go with one of my 2 favorites - either the GA Mind Bender or Kennywood Thunderbolt. With *minor* changes of course.

Re: Trip Report: Lita Ford, Poison and Def Leppard

Glad you guys had fun. Lita Ford's work on the Runaways records is highly underrated, as are the Runaways records: http://the-adventurers-club.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/2007/05/02/runaways_1976.jpg Anyone who likes Rock n Roll should check out those records. Especially the first 2. A bit camp...

Re: Daredevil Daze 2012

$10 for 2 ERTs and a lunch isn't a bad deal. Of course I'm going to hang with other coaster geeks ;) I'm penciled in. Trying to get a couple friends to go with. If I go, it'll probably be a quick one day thing. Leave Chicago at about 4am and get back around 2am... hrm... not sure I can do that these...

Re: PTR Mt Olympus 8-11-11

Great pictures! The "you break it we consider it sold" thing is really lame and says a lot about the people who run this place. Not to mention, they cannot force you (legally) to pay for something you break. Don't quote me on that one, though. The park is *THEE* example of how great a park could be ...

Re: SOB To Be Dismantled

I rode it 3 times in a row in 2005. The first time was bad. Real bad - but the loop was cool and being a "lift hill enthusiast" I really liked the creepy steep and tall ( Twilight Zone-ish ) lift. The second ride was even worse. My friend (a not as geeky coaster geek) said he had enough and would wa...

Can't wait to hear what you think.
Me too! That seat is nearly asking for it, yet too good at the same time.

Re: Lincoln Park Comet coming down

^I will be there! And hopefully I'll be there again before they get the new Comet up :) I *loved* that little park. I've heard they have a metal shop on grounds so all those old rides are kept in near-mint condition. Meteor is GREAT. The station has been rebuilt exactly as it was at Hillcrest; curvi...

"8 car per" trainer

I just started using this cheat/trainer/thingy yesterday and I really like some of it. Having some problems with it - I hit the "Extremely Exciting Rides" button and some of my lame rides excitement ratings jumped, but some of my already high excitement coasters - the number went down. Anyone know w...

Re: Darien Lake Pictures Are Now Up

Very nice job, Paul! Per Viper - that flat section at the top of the hill - I love it! More time to anticipate the drop, more time to view ;) So many newer rides (wood and or steel or a combo) are very element - to -element. That is ok some of the time, but I like stuff that meanders. It has a certa...
