You know how B&M hypers can have good days and bad days? Predator's the same. It runs from not bad at all to holy crap why did I get on this.LiveForTheLaunch said:Predator isn't even rough, I don't get what everyone is on about. I realllly liked Predator, because it wasn't painfully rough and actually had a bit of airtime. Didn't it get retracked fairly recently or no?

Agreed. Just prepare for the awkward tilting before the break run and you'll be fine. The Flying Snake dive is unique (obviously since its the only one in existence) and offers some nice hang time if you include it with the heartline roll. Top it off with an intense 2 second launch+top hat and Storm Runner makes its way into my top 5.IntaminToWin said:
That's just creepy. I live in CT and have travelled as far (for now) as 10 hours east to Ohio and 10 hours south to Virginia. I have flown to Florida and will fly out to California next summer......bmac said:By simply measuring his top 30 you can easily tell near where he lives. I did one for Bizarrofan and one for myself so that it isn't just a one shot coincidence. It's rather easy to tell where someone is if they haven't been to too many parks just by locating their favorite coasters, it gets even easier if you locate all of the coasters they've ridden (again unless they've been to a lot of parks unlike ECG, Gavin, RollerMonkey, and company).
the locations (general) of my top 15 coasters. By using this it shouldn't be too hard to judge that I live in the area between Washington DC and Philadelphia, and that's only because of the parks locations. If I used my entire Coaster Count and the concentration of rides it would easily change that to the state of NJ (which I used to live in Ocean County, not too far from Great Adventure). Now that of course is now sort of a lie since I have moved down to Northern Virginia, but I'm still within a reasonable drive of most of those parks (by reasonable I mean a full days trip from 5am to 11pm).
Bizarrofan is a little odder but still holds true:
If I had his full Coaster Count it would be a lot easier to judge where he lives, but with the concentration of his top 30 I'd say he lives in Philly (yes I saw his location on the forums, I'm wrong).
If anyone else has a rather small coaster count (above 70 and below 300 would be great) I could probably locate them, too.
Now if you'll excuse me I'm now probably on a watch list for online stalking.
