  1. Bleh... I don't really care for a dinosaur walk unless they do something special with it.
  2. I vote for an intamin giga
  3. Can I just go ahead and post? a new picture? I've been waiting for awhile, and I know PKI was active on other topics.
  4. http://rcdb.com/3141.htm?p=0 Crystal Wing A.K.A. 水晶神翼 The date gives this away.
  5. Since I'm not up to post... since I always look at this thread too late... I might as well say, that ride is really fun up until the three air hills are done. Very scary drop in the back seat.
  6. It's probably really fun for them... it's frustrating for us
  7. That only makes me wish that 2011 also brings the return of the backwards train.
  8. those are my exact thoughts. im just glad to see KI getting a new flat because they are in desperate need of a new flat and at least its something BIG and eye catching with good capacity. im not complaining. i want to ride this next year. it may not be a big fast coaster but its something ive never ridden before and im always down for that. it reminds me a lot of the old Flight Commander..just how it looks in the animation anyways. is it going where Flight Commander once sat? do you think they will have First Rider tees on opening day? LOL It's not where Flight Commander was, I would like them to renovate the Queue and move the pitching game so that they can put a different flat there. Maybe something like Chaos, or a Rock-O-Planes. But the wind seeker is going to be at the back end of Coney Mall next to the entrance of the 3d theater and the exit of Vortex.
  9. When I heard a week before I went to Cedar Point, that they were getting a new thrill ride. I was feeling kinda sad that I wouldn't get to ride it, since I never go to parks every year when they are far away. But since Kings Island is getting an identical ride, I don't have to worry :)
  10. Hey I know that swinging high in the sky is probably more fun than it looks... also probably an insane cool off ride. So if people don't want to ride just because they think it's lame... let them leave... that'll just leave shorter lines for me :) Also, the most recent flat ride/ thrill put in was Delirium, and those lines stay around 15 minutes max on an average day. The lines I think were a good hour or two opening week. Do you think the lines for this new ride will be an hour? I sure hope it's not.
  11. What's Zypher? And I hope the lines for this ride won't jam that section of the park. And when they mentioned gary coleman I got excited and confused... He appears to bet a midget just like the celebrity gary too.
  12. I've actually been on the lower one for the first time early this year. I don't know why it's taken this long to actually get the lower deck. It was rainy (sprinkle) that day, and I've been on the lower deck 3 other times, which all of them were nice sunny days. I remember actually watching the fireworks on the lower deck. But really it doesn't really steal anything being on one or the other. The only thing you can't see when you're on the lower deck is the sky, which you can see pretty much anywhere else. I am starting to be unsure of how the park decides which platform will be open, doesn't always seem to make sense to me.
  13. Hey all, I have a trip planned for cedar point August 21st, and 22nd, they are on Saturday and Sunday; which I hear are the busiest days for cedar point. Or any park for that matter. I was wondering, to ride all the coasters, and all the worth-while attractions, without rushing, would I need to extend the vacation to three days? I was thinking about it, but then I thought about how it's towards the end of summer, and that some people would need to stay with school schedules and not go to the park every week end. But now I'm unsure of what to do. For those of you that have been there, hopefully on a saturday, or sunday. What are the crowds really like in actuality, and does the trip being the end of the summer mean I should be able to ride all the coasters? And we are planning to start towards the back of the park if that changes anything, because sometimes the usual's hang in the front part, while the back still has pretty short lines. (I hear so many things about Cedar Point having hour long lines for several rides)

    They altered Delirium? Oh boy, if it goes higher and faster, I'm so going on it. I never really liked the ride too much because of how tame it was. I thought it deserved more of a 3 thrill rating. Instead of the one it has, but maybe I should give it another whirl.
  15. No do the gravitron ride if you want a rotating disc. Those are fun.
  16. A coaster better be dang* smooth if it has a 200ft loop.
  17. I haven't seen a hard one yet. It's just that I look on here too late. :\
  18. Okay, so yesterday I went and took a trip to Holiday World. Great trip and I guess it'll be on my youtube channel in a couple of days. But that's not what I wanted to ask. I was wondering if any of you guys have been there this year yet? If you have, did you ride the red train recycled from The Raven, and the original PTC Voyage train? I only got to ride the red one, but it was considerably rough compared to my last trip up there. I was hoping it was just the age of the Red train rattling more, and not the ride getting extremely rough. So I guess to make this simpler; Is the Voyage PTC smoother than the Raven PTC? I'm mainly asking because I haven't ever had a ride get so progressively rough in only two years. I rode twice and that second time my head was hurting like mad. And I didn't have a head ache, because once I stepped off, I shook my head a bit and there was no pain. While the last time I went I rode maybe 4 times in a row and only left because people wanted to do other things.
  19. I agree, I think the white lights could be done a different way. They seem to distract from the changing lights.
  20. I've said this in the past, but I'd love some Vekoma trains on Top Gun.
  21. Do you mean there'll be more B&M coasters? Because most parks usually only have one hyper coaster. Technically, we now fall into that category since SOB is SBNO. But other than Cedar Point, I can't really think of other parks that have several coasters being 200 plus feet tall. And even with SOB operating, I wouldn't of counted it as a similar ride, as SOB was never about airtime at all.
