I seemed to like many new credits this year that I didn't expect too. The really crazy part of it was that most of the surprises were wooden. New Texas Giant was the steel leader of the year. Since I had never been on a RMC before I didn't know what was going to happen. This one has a ton of...
Best New Cred - Cyclone, Luna Park (Brooklyn)
Worst New Cred - Thunderbolt, Luna Park (Brooklyn)
Most Surprising New Cred - Yankee Cannonball, Canobie Lake
Nastiest Spiting Experience - Cyclone at SFNG closing for good two weeks before I get there
Best Individual Ride - Goliath at La...
I would have to say that the last three years have been good for new coaster and park credits.
2012: June - 10 coasters, 1 park; August - 28 coasters, 4 parks = 38 coasters, 5 parks
2013: June - 4 coasters; August - 30 coasters, 3 parks = 34 coasters, 3 parks
2014: June - 8 coasters, 3...
Height does matter to me, but the tallest is not always the best. There are three B&M hypers I like best of all, but there are rides out there that are bigger. Kingda Ka is a little taller than Top Thrill Dragster, but I prefer the lap bar restraint over the OTSR. When it comes to the gigas...
This is my view on this and not really a "rule" spoken or not.
The general public wears shirts from a competing park all the time (ie. wearing a Universal Studios Florida shirt at WDW). I consider this in bad taste. I actually plan on wearing my SFMM shirt at another Six Flags park or my BGW...
Only a few stand out as being that bad to mention here.
They will go from bad to not having hardly anything at all.
Six Flags America
7. Great Bear
8. Silver Bullet
10. Chinese Fireball
11. Batman The Ride (SFGAM)
13. Batman The Ride (SFOG)
14. Batman The Ride (SFGAV)
15. Batman The Ride (SFMM)
16. Batman The Ride (SFOT)
17. Batman The...
^ Both parks are clean, pretty, the staff is friendy and helpful. They had much better staff, and much better ride operations than SFNE or La Ronde. Even though we tend to be centered around coasters, I love it when parks have a nice mix of flat rides too. That is why Canobie, Great Escape, and...
Thunderbolt was ok as long as you didn't move from side to side or up or down. I like the 100 degree lift hill and drop, but this ride was pretty painful most of the rest of the way. Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rockit, Dare Devil Dive, and Fahrenheit start off a similar way but finish much better.
Re: Top 10(ish): 2014 Edition
After my big trip to the northeastern US, this is the best added to my overall list. (Keep in mind there were 40 coasters; I'm not going to waist our time listing the stupid stuff like the boomerangs, wild mice, and kiddie coasters that they let me on but I kind of...
As you can tell by my name, I am generally all about steel coasters, but this trip was really centered around woodens. Prior to this, the only ones built by Custom Coasters International that I thought were more than just ok were Holiday World's Legend and SFSTL's Boss. Well Boulder Dash is a...
I was able to go to eight parks in just five days in the northeastern United States and Québec. This is the list of them in order of how much I liked them.
Canobie Lake Park
Six Flags Great Escape
Six Flags New England
Playland Park (Rye, NY)
Luna Park / Scream Zone...
