    Man falls from Opa roller coaster at Mt. Olympus ... id=9457542 Some might be more surprised that it didn't happen sooner, but I won't mention that. I wouldn't want to be considered callous.

    Tex-Mex 2010 - Milestones Don't Matter

    So... I went to Tejas and Mexico City. Here's some pictures and words. First, I went to Sandy Lake Park. It's a smallish park in Carrolton, T.X. that caters largely to groups and businesses. It's kind of like Stricker's Grove, but with more public access. They have a Pretzel dark...

    How young is too young?

    I was just curious, but how young is too young to bring a child on a coaster, or other type of ride? I know that there are some rides out there with no height restriction in place, but it still would seem odd to bring an infant on something besides a carousel or a park train... Opinions?

    A secret project, but now all can be told!

    On Thursday the 17th, we woke up fashionably late, and got ready to arrive at the hospital at 10 AM. Lake Forest Hospital is a small, but really nice hospital in an upscale suburb of Chicago. (Seriously, the median house goes for a million dollars, easily.) The main entrance... Since...

    Honest question: I've been looking over steel ballots until my eyes cross (and I've ID some of you guys' ballots :) ) and I'm noticing one odd thing that I don't understand: The two coasters at Europa Park, Eurosat and Euro-Mir, don't make much sense to me on a LOT of ballots. Some people...

    Kings Dominion 2010 Project

    OK, I searched for anything on this, without result. If there's a thread already, delete this one. So, there's planning premissions at city hall, land clearing and supports on site, so something's up at Kings Dominion, right? Well, rumor has it trucks showed up at the park today and...

    Diamondback Opening Day

    Yeah, when I'm in Waffle House territory, how can I not eat there? Dang, I parked kind of close. I hope it doesn't fall on my car. My buddy, Eric. Because I was way too close to NOT drag him out of the house. Soon, my pretty. Not really, this sign was like 40 minutes after we...
