    What's next for RMC?

    Re: What's next for RMC? New Concept Coaster (page 4) The trains suggest mega coaster if comparing them to Giovanola's Titan and Goliath trains. Also, imagine if this concept was used on a roller coaster like I305... does anyone else think they wouldn't have had such an issue with...

    Cedar Point | Valravn | B&M Dive Machine

    Re: Cedar Point Closes Good Time Theatre-B&M Dive Coaster 20 B&M dive machines = glorified floorless? In terms of ride experience, wouldn't this be slightly redundant considering the Mantis → Rougarou conversion? Floorless cars (assuming that's how it will be), four inversions, B&M... just...

    Most Intense Ride You've Ever Ridden

    Roller coaster - Maverick, in an awesome way. What a rush. It had my endorphins going in the final brake run. I couldn't quit smiling. Not only a mental high, but a physical one too, similar to how I'd feel after 20 minutes of vigorous exercise. Probably the only roller coaster that ever made me...

    Does size matter?

    Let's not forget Maverick.

    Cedar Point | Rougarou | Mantis Floorless Conversion

    Riddler's Revenge was awesome, or at least it was when I rode it 12 years ago. Does it still stand out for a stand-up? No pun intended. But I never knew how they could have been that unpopular with something like Riddler in existence. It's like, comparable to what Alpengeist is for inverts. A...

    Cedar Point | Rougarou | Mantis Floorless Conversion

    Re: Cedar Point Mantis to Close October 19 ^ I was referring to the six basic/pure colors, and not just shades of the same one. But yeah, it'd be nice if they revamp the station too. It looks pretty dull in its current state.

    Cedar Point | Rougarou | Mantis Floorless Conversion

    Re: Cedar Point Mantis to Close October 19 Nice to see the orange (track) paint being added to CP's skyline. They were going overboard with red (Dragster + Magnum + Maverick + Iron Dragon...) and blue (Millennium + GateKeeper + Corkscrew + Blue Streak...). And there's still the yellow track on...

    Most Infamous Coasters

    Oh yeah, I think this one wins, hands down. Forgot about the "terrible trio"/"terrifying triplets"... (Full article here) Yikes.

    Most Infamous Coasters

    Fiesta Texas' former Rattler for the structure's excessive swaying. It wasn't necessarily a bad thing, but it was still unsettling to watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLfQBW9wnDI The initial drop had also shrunk more than 40 feet due to multiple reprofilings since debut. Nürburgring's...

    All Giga Coasters, least to greatest

    Only two I've ridden. MF and I305. Can't really decide which is better so, they're equal.

    Kumba v. Wildfire

    I see. Good way of putting it.

    Kumba v. Wildfire

    It seems this is what Medusa/Bizarro did @ SFGA (as well as the mirrored clone, Scream! @ SFMM). The layouts between those and Kumba are quite similar; yeah not exact clones to it but still very similar. With that said I wonder if any Kumba fans also admire Bizarro and Scream! for similar reasons..?

    Have You Ever Gotten Stuck on a Ride/Coaster?

    Restraints stuck closed for a moment after a run on Mean Streak in 2007.

    Strangest Coaster Layouts

    Wanna bump this thread to mention Big One @ Blackpool Pleasure Beach. Lots of kinetic energy wasted over tame hills. And has a terrible looking support structure.

    Apollo's Chariot Re-Creation

    False alarm, thank God. I was starting to lose hope. But then a new idea hit me out of the blue yesterday. I tried it and it worked. :smile:

    Why are coaster cars taken off the track during off-season?

    Re: Why are coaster cars taken off the track during off-seas Surely you mean just all Cedar Point roller coaster trains are disassembled down to the last bolt and screw during off-season and not the actual coasters themselves, right?

    Apollo's Chariot Re-Creation

    Free-handing the helix has always been a bitch. I think I've concluded that in order for it to be as good as I want it to be, it will probably have to be tooled. :-( And even then, hell if I'll ever know the formula for it. I don't plan on tooling this though. Are there any pointers as to how...

    Nitro Vs. Apollo's Chariot

    I'm also wondering about Apollo's kicker (pre-drop), if that has a slight edge over Nitro's traditional first hill...

    Why are coaster cars taken off the track during off-season?

    Re: Why are coaster cars taken off the track during off-seas Intricks and MouseAT, thanks for the clarifications. My thoughts exactly. Glad others are on the same page. Again, what I was thinking. Seems the Millie cars would have been put on a rack. Thanks for everyone's feedback.
