    I can't find any news about it. :(

  3. A roller coaster hit a tree branch at the Six Flags Magic Mountain amusement park outside Los Angeles on Monday, dislodging the front car, leaving four people slightly injured and keeping nearly two-dozen summer fun-seekers hanging 20-30 feet in the air for hours as day turned to night. You can read the rest here ---> http://www.people.co...tain-california If I was trapped on a roller coaster for three hours, I would end up peeing my pants. I just don't think I could go that long without having to go. .
  4. Five members of a Vermont family assaulted police officers during a melee that erupted when security guards at a New Hampshire amusement park, Canobie Lake Park, told them to leave their knives in the car, police said Tuesday.

    Roller Coaster videos

    I'm hoping I get to try out the Kentucky Rumbler at Beech Bend this summer. I'm kind of broke at the moment so I shale see if this pans out or not. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQp5wZn67po

    Roller Coaster videos

    So a friend of mine has been to Universal Studios in Singapore and has ridden the Battlestar Galactica coaster. I looked it up on You Tube to watch a point of view video and it looks pretty damn awesome. Its two coasters intertwined, a sit down coaster representing the human race and a hanging coaster for the Cylons. Parts of the Cylon footage was making me feel a bit nauseas but it looks way more fun than the human coaster. How great would it be to travel the world and try different rides and coasters? http://youtu.be/jWJYeimZUPo I would like to see some videos of rides and/or coasters that you loved or would like to ride someday.
  8. They'll probably get a back up after this.

    Maybe someday I will make it out to one of the Six Flags parks.

    I've never ridden either.

    Boyz are back

    Well, it would be a great way to pick up chicks.

    I appreciate your sarcasm! :wild:

    Boyz are back

    I hear its a tribute to boy bands, and I haven't really liked a boy band since The Monkeys.

    Banshee down....

    From what I heard from friends who were in line, Banshee was down because a Hydraulic hose came loose and the sound freaked people out and had them running from the line queue like there was an explosion happening. No one was hurt, much less killed, and the ride even reopened later in the evening.

    Return of DIAMONDSTACK

    It didn't have seat belts on opening day, even though I kept reading that it would have. Strange.

    banshee testing (creeps through elements)

    I rode it last Friday, after waiting 3 hours and 20 minutes, and I thought it was a really good ride. There comes a point when you don't know if your upside down or right side up, complete disorientation. I like how your head doesn't bat around between the over the shoulder harness like it does on Invertigo. The theaming is rather light. If you took out the tombstones surrounding the queues it would be rather generic, looking more like the Diamondback station than something spooky, only painted purple instead of orange. Despite the coaster being smooth and fun, all the inversion did have me feeling a bit nauseous before the ride was over. I can ride spinning rides but the ones that flip me upside down are the ones that make me sick, and it gets worse as I get older. I'll never wait three hours to ride again, but I will ride this a bunch of more times this year, on slower days, but no more than once per visit unless I'm purposely trying to make myself sick. Next year the novelty of it being new will wear off and riding it will probably become more like Firehawk, in the sense that I only ride it 2 or 3 times a year. I enjoyed it, thought it was a great ride, but my body just isn't as tolerant as it used to be.

    intamin track spotted on I-71 (pic)

    Hard to believe that you posted that picture on APRIL 1st... my how time flies.
  20. Although the ride in this video looks slower than I was expecting, it still seems to be quite the thrill ride for what we have come to expect from Coney Island. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gssO9rjFqPQ

    What will be your first day?

    I'll be at the park on Friday, April 18th. Will you be there opening weekend or wait for awhile in hopes some of the crowds die down? I remember when Diamonfback opened that first public day, the line circled all the way around the lake, but by 4 pm it wasn't much longer than a typical Saturday. Also to consider, if everyone is in line for Banshee, the other ride lines should, in theory, be pretty short.
  22. Apparently, rollercoasters made of lego is a thing. There are a few videos on You Tube, but this is the latest. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=82Ms1FHZXP4

    What will be your first day?

    You'll need to elaborate because I don't understand what that means. Are you talking like a power struggle among the middle management?

    What will be your first day?

    So... Your thinking more like opening day, 2015? :lol:

    I just read that myself on Facebook. Maybe they all had to sign waivers. :doh:
