    IAAPA 2022

    One last post, as this wasn't really mentioned. Wildcats certainly aren't my favorite Schwarzkopf models, but a faster, twice as high one doesn't sound bad. Not sure this will ever happen, but I do wish him luck it getting it done.

    Original Texas Giant 1990-2009

    Shockingly fine? The damn thing pounded me around so much I thought it was trying to knock my heart out of my chest. Worse ride I ever had. I was dreading to return to the park a week later to film a POV, but thankfully it closed for good a couple of days beforehand.

    What defunct coaster do you miss the most?

    Blackpool's Wild Mouse head and shoulders above anything else. Next would be Volcano at Kings Dominion followed by Blue Streak at Conneaut Lake, in spite of it looking like a death trap. I miss Led Zeppelin - the Ride for the experience, even though it was the roughest B&M I've ridden. Although...

    Original Texas Giant 1990-2009

    ^Someone never rode Son of Beast. :p I didn't think it was that bad and rode it every time I visited the park. It did get progressively worse with each trip I took to Texas, but I didn't think it was as bad as Gwazi, Mean Streak, Predator, Legend, Boss, Bandit, Coaster Express or Magnus...

    Any news on Falcon's Fury?

    Great to see. Went to the park before IAAPA Expo started and nothing was going on, so guess they got the parts needed (or at least some of them).

    IAAPA 2022

    It felt back to normal, very much so. Actually, better than normal (for vendors). Bust? Anything but... This demo was amazing.
