I unfortunately can't zip your file and can't see how it does work. :( It looks like I've got a notice that just says I can't zip this file stuff. How can I make it good?

I used Firefox to upload the zip. Opera can't handle uploads. maybe I outta use IE.

What exactly is inferior about P-Keg? I think it's the best coaster in MO.

Looks like I really need to use Opera to get your zip data into my computer. :D Okay I'll have a go at the download after setting the Opera browser up.

Dude, have you even ridden P-Keg. You're trashing one of the best coasters built in recent years. P-Keg is a much better ride than Buzzsaw. I completely disagree with you, but am sorry a ride you liked was dismantled; that's never fun.

Buzzsaw Falls had water elements. The final drop on PK doesn't even have water. I am sure they could have built Powder Keg seperately. I don't haee much to work with. I can't find any ridethroughs of Buzzsaw falls or any layout pictures.

I never rode either of them but Powder Keg looks a lot better.

Powder Keg is a weak launch ride. The trains can't even finish the run without using the lift from Buzzsaw Falls and the final drop from it as well. I wanna add a burned out launch building and busted tracks around my ride with a train in the water. They need to get that Buzzsaw Falls train off the roof of Powder Keg and put it back on the track where it belongs.

I have to disagree with you on this one. Powder Keg's launch rocks and flying (and I do mean flying with some wicked -G's) over that hill to suddenly see that valley below is one of the most perfect stretches of track anywhere. IMHO Powder Keg's weak spots are where it uses BF's track as it loses all of it's intensity and excitement there.

Have Fun

Yes. I like the Buzzsaw spinning above the boats. Why did they rip up that ride in the first place what was sooo wrong with it that let to its demise?

It had low ridership, most people who rode it didn't know it was also a coaster so were surprised to find that and it being a prototype had a ton of maintenance issues.

Have Fun

It sounds like the big trouble what Knott's Berry Farm had got on the Togo looper. The ride was called the Windjammer Surf Racers and they were the dueling coaster with a vertical loop. It got closed down in only around a couple of years because of too many breakdowns as Buzzsaw. :( Plus it's also got a low riderships.
