Before this past weekend, I had nothing. Now, I have something to add:
Mt. Olympus-Park Operations were horrible (As a ride host, they were terrifingly bad), the pathways were thin and overcrowded, and there were just too many go-kart tracks. Hades 360 was an excellent ride, but not worth...
I derailed this topic so badly.
I keep hearing a local say:
"Gemini and Magnum XL200 will be torn down next year because everyone hates it and no one ever rides it. Same with Blue Streak, it's too rough for anyone to ever like."
He's never been outside Ohio for coasters.
My biggest thing I dislike about seeing enthusiasts wearing shirts from different parks is that it is never, ever because they're just a fan. If they were just a fan, they could wear anything and their enthusiasm alone would be enough. I've noticed a common thing been said a few times in here...
As a ride host, I found enthusiasts to be far, FAR worse than the general public. The general public doesn't need, nor want to know, everything about every ride ever built. They don't care about what each element is called. They don't care about stats. They don't even know that there might be a...
Hot Take: 90% of the general public won't know what a Dive Machine even is, let alone what make this one "bad".
It'll be fine. Post MCBR is awkward, but it gives it a LITTLE something. The Immelmann after the dive is standard, and I do wish they'd switch it up with something else. And as...
I'm just going to go with what they were called at the time. Also, I might not be right on some of these...
First coaster: Junior Gemini-Cedar Point
First Steel coaster: Junior Gemini-Cedar Point
First Wooden coaster: Blue Streak-Cedar Point
First coaster with inversions: Corkscrew-Michigan's...
Finally was able to get onto Steel Vengeance again after a month...but it did change my ranking of it...
7-Ravine Flyer 2
Rode it once during Frontier Hoedown, row 4, a second time in row 11 opening day. Both of those times I was a single rider so I was told where to go to fill in the train. I've gone back several times with the intention of riding it again, but it's been down mechanical or for wind. What it boils...
Getting ready for some hate here:
7-Ravine Flyer 2
8-Steel Vengeance (I can't justify it going any higher anymore)
I was told that Cedar Point has been keeping the Cedar Point Shores parking lot blocked off until 9:30am. This is due to everyone going to the Magnum gate for Steel Vengeance leaving minimal parking for Cedar Point Shore. This might not still be true but thought I would give a...
As someone who has worked at Cedar Point several times and has gotten asked about it several times, the two main reasons why cameras (Yes, even go pros) aren't allowed on rides boils down to two main factors: safety and liability.
I have seen the countless handheld cameras, phones, and...
You have RMC's logo for an icon, you wear shirts and hats with their logo, and you LITERALLY SCREAMED LIKE A LITTLE GIRL when one of the RMC people showed up for Steel Vengeance's announcement.
Forgive me for not taking your defense of RMC seriously, but you have a very, very obvious bias.
You asked for least common opinions, I give you RMC isn't the perfect company everyone makes them out to be.
Allow me to explain: Steel Vengeance is ranked #6 for me and will likely never get higher than that. If anything, it's going to get even lower. This is mostly due to the problem I have...
