Hey All;

I wanted to say thinks as this forum has taken off considerably quicker than I ever could have expected. In the past three weeks we have had over a thousand posts and fifty members. I have been enjoying all of the discussions and look forward to much much more.

Thanks and have fun!

Paul,
Thank you for providing this well managed forum that has brought out a more proactive side to my obsession with coasters and parks. I have hesitated to post and have frequntly been that passive viewer, but this site has brought out my more prolific side.

I do not even know you but I have been watching your site for a long time. And although I do not know you it has always been nice to read your pictorials and accompaning thoughts.


Keep up the good work,

Jerel J. Rogers

Yeah I love this site. I have always liked the pictures on here, and at first when Brian and Don told me you had a forum I was all - "lol". But about a week later - I came and checked the forum out - and it was alot better than I thought it was going to turn out. I had expected a Holiday World fan forum. But this is truly a great site for coaster enthusiasts to not just talk about coasters - but about anything in general. I would say its actually my favorite forum out there now.

That is one of the great things I like about this forum, too. We can discuss anything we wish. It does not have to be just about coasters. Just because we like coasters doesn't mean we don't talk about anything else!

Well, I am glad there is another forum I can talk on. There aren't that many free ones I like. This takes the place of Gthrills. That was a great site, much like this one. Fortunately, this one had a great fate.


Thanks.

Hey all;

I was pretty nervous about this - it's not something I can fully control the way I can my pictures. I tried a tagboard a couple years back, and that was pretty much a miserable failure, so this was kind of a leap of faith. But the enthusiast community has become my family of sorts, and I'm really happy to see this going so well.

Have Fun!

Paul
