Yeah, most of EE's price was the extensive theming and the Yeti. I'm not 100% sure on the most expensive COASTER, but I'd assume it's a larger ride like SD2K or Eejankaika.
Lofty said:Yeah, that figure is for the project as a whole as far as I'm aware, so that also includes the ridiculous Yeti animatronic and it's own support structure, too.Pokemaniac said:EE cost a whooping 100 million dollars to build, making it the most expensive coaster built to date if themeing is included.
You have ridden one, right?The Hype on RMCs - sure, they're great, but they aren't the second coming.
Roller Coasters that don't even try to have a theme.
People complaining at me when I'm smoking in the designated smoking area. Also, line breakers are the worst. It won't happen around me. If someone wants to catch up with their group, fine, no problem, but people just cutting the corners or taking up a gap that hasn't moved forward yet will not be tolerated by me.Why, in this day and age, do parks still think its acceptable, after spending god knows how much money, to use the manufacturers standard ride name?! How boring do you have to be to buy a new Zamperla Air Race and then go and call it Air Race, the same :emoji_zipper_mouth: name as every other :emoji_zipper_mouth: Air Race in the world.
Not so much a topic dedicated to the above but do you have any major gripes in the world of coasters / themeparks? Here's a place where you can let them out!
Yes.You have ridden one, right?
and unnecessary "no singles" rules (translates to all "no singles" rules)
Has anyone else ever encountered this level of ineptitude in ride operations?
Yep, that sounds like the same kind of thing.Chessington on a rainy busy day when they only load two per car on Rattlesnake for some safety reason.
Fast track takes up every other car meaning you get two people from the main queue every 90 seconds or so. Like you described the queue just doesn't move and it's a real burden to stand in.
You wanna know what really grinds my gears?
Coming on to this forum to check for any new news, gossip or stimulating debates, only to find the 'New Posts' box clogged up with entries from the 'Three Word Story' thread and the monumentally pointless 'Staff vs User Counting Game' thread.
I mean, really? 444 pages (so far) of people counting? What a colossal waste of cyberspace that is.
Get a life!!!
If there's some way that these threads could be excluded from appearing in the 'New Posts' box, that would be amazing.
I'm sure there's other pointless topics that are worthy of the exclusion clause, but those two?
Yeah, those two in particular really grind my gears...
^Sounds awfully technical to me, not the sort of thing my simpleton, Ewok loving, Shropshire-bumpkin brain can deal with, but if it's no trouble for a tech-savvy fella such as yourself, then crack on, good Sir!
