    Brilliant in concept, disappointing in execution?

    The Gringotts ride at Universal comes to mind. A lightly-themed indoor rollercoaster would have been a million times better than what we got. Even if they wanted it to primarily be a screen ride, I think it could have been done a lot better.

    "Now Showing"

    @peep it's on my watch list! And @FarleyFlavors I'll have to add that one to my list as well.

    "Now Showing"

    Oh spit, I've actually watched quite a few movies recently that I haven't posted about yet. Here's some thoughts: The Suicide Squad - I'm pretty burned out on superhero movies, and this was one of those movies where it was getting really good reviews, and I wasn't sure if it was getting good...

    Biblical Coaster Names

    I don't think that one really counts. It's named after a local cryptid, not a literal devil. Kinda like a tasmanian devil (except that one is a real animal)

    Biblical Coaster Names

    Are there really that many rollercoasters named after demons? All I can think of is Leviathan and the generically named Demon at each Great America park

    Rides that you would like more if they had different restraints

    I actually liked it more as Mantis, but that's probably because I'm a manlet and stand-up restraints just never bothered me. It's kind of a mixed bag these days. Sometimes Rougaroo gives glass smooth rides, and other times it's super rattly and I need to ride defensively in the 2nd half. Back...

    Kennywood Announces New Fright Nights!

    Neat, I saw that on a fan page and didn't know if it was legit, or just a Photoshop. Hope they go with the dark blue

    Woman injured after metal object strikes her from Top Thrill Dragster train.

    This is purely conjecture and I hope I'm wrong, but I suspect a lot of these parks are cutting corners to compensate for understaffing. It's what I thought when the El Toro incident happened (another likely maintenance issue) and the shoe definitely fits for this one. If that's the case, I'm...

    Why would being SBNO make the structure more likely to deform? Regardless of weather conditions, I'm pretty sure wear and tear is more likely if the structure is experiencing forces MORE often, not less. You seem to think that structural material acts similarly to human muscle (you get sore if...

    Kennywood Announces New Fright Nights!

    @Rupert beat me to it. I think this is a cool change! I always thought PFN hours were too short to do everything you'd want to do, so this seems like a better approach.
