    Is RMC going downhill?

    If I could travel the world and hit all the ones I haven't rode, my top 20 would have around 4 - 7 "downhills" in them

    Is RMC going downhill?

    Could we mention that some of the new, shiny stuff that we're jacked for contain straight up element copies of Schilke's?

    How many theme parks have you visited since parks reopened?

    Zip, Nada, goose egg, the Null Set...and it's bugging me

    If you could put any roller coaster in your home park, what would it be and where would it go?

    Closest to me is Valleyfair... so it limits your options a little. A Mako clone - taking out Excalibur and interacting with Renegade is what I would do. I want Untamed/TaronHelix/Walibi Intamin - or something that's trying to kill me every second, but for balance and sales, it would be a...

    What is the most surprising airtime moment you’ve experienced in your enthusiast career?

    Wasn't airtime, but Superman's pretzel loop at SFGAm surprised me.

    Coasters you like that others don’t and a coaster you don’t like that others do

    Coasters I love that others don't: Verbolten, Raging Bull, Gatekeeper, Stunt Coaster(s), Intimidator, Gold Rusher, Valravn, Revenge of the Mummy, Gemini, Fairly Odd Coaster. NINJA! Hell, I'd even add Blue Streak at the beginning of a season. Coasters I could live without: Voyage, Banshee...

    Are B&M stagnating?

    B&M is kinda like the Pink Floyd of Coaster manufacturers, if that makes sense.

    Your Favourite Artists/Bands

    I'm a musician so my idea of catchy differs from the norm - Best ever for making the most of what they got- plus place in rock and roll history - plus quality of catalog- excluding obligatory mentions (Elvis, Muddy, Wolf, Roy Orbison) : Pink Floyd Rush AC/DC Stones/Beatles straight up tie...

    Ride Related Dreams You've Had

    I've had a dream where me and the kids were at Cedar Point, but no operators or crowds. So I figure out how to make it go and get in the rear seat, but woke up at the crest of the hill. When I was young, I dreamt being around the Matterhorn a lot. It had a big impact on me, kinda like the first...

    Top 10(ish): 2021 Edition - page 102

    A little different but not worth the search for or starting a new thread. I've been fantasizing about what my top 10 would be if I could just blow 20k and knock em all out, and ride ones that are really close to being done - and I've come up with the following: 1. Taron 2. Hyperion 3. Hakugei 4...

    What is the Best Log Flume?

    If I remember right, Timber Mountain was light years ahead of its time...they spent a long time building it - and it was truly one of a kind when it opened. I think John Wayne took the first public ride on it. Think so, but too lazy too look it up

    Rank the RMCs

    I'm interested in how anyone would place Zadra, Untamed, Hakugei, SV, Lightning Rod, and Wildfire? Once you make that list, Gwazi says hold my beer. Hakugei certainly looks like a great ride, but I've heard Untamed is an absolute masterpiece for airtime hawks. And then the other stellar, yet...

    A park with the best and worst coaster in one!

    Almost have to add Voyage/Legend to this list. Legend was unridable last time I went.

    Rank the Goliaths

    I'm going to do bold for ridden Goliaths...Maybe we should do "Timbers" list next? 1. Walibi 2. SFGAm 3. SFOG 4. SFFT 5. La Ronde 6. SFMM (First grey out!) SFNE - Meh...shuttles

    Why is Scream at SFMM so hated?

    Mantirou and the stand up at Carowinds says, "Hold my beer..."

    Why is Scream at SFMM so hated?

    I haven't ridden it in ages. But I thought the same thing back then. Decent, but not a destination-worthy ride. The talk I read about, I just assumed it got a bit more rough from age. Good to hear that it's still reasonably smooth.

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    Does anyone else think of South Park TMI episode when thinking about Orion? LengthXGirth divided by Yaw = 287. Sorry guys, bad taste but it is kinda funny.

    Best theme park Toilets

    We need to get back to riding! My vote, as tacky as it may be. Is the Thirsty Pony in Sandusky. Cracks me up every time.

    Your favourite (and most hated) Theme Park Hotels/Accomodation

    Favorite would have to be the Cabins at Lighthouse Point at CP. The only drawback is the walk back there. Even with the shuttle, after a couple days of hard core riding I get "Popeye" legs. So sore but so good! Worst is Camp Rudolph RV rentals at HW. State of the Art around 1978 or so. And...
