In addition to the fact that Fun Spot is looking to partner with an Atlanta Pro Sports team, I definitely wouldn't discount potentially something that could be larger than TwiCy... Maybe even to the scale of Storm Chaser?? All speculation right now, of course.
Anyone caught wind of a re-opening date on this one??
I haven't been able to fit on it since I was 18, which is almost 13 years ago, because of my long legs. I actually have missed out on a couple other Schwarzkopf models too, because of my long legs. When they announced Mindbender was getting...
- Steel Vengeance
- Twisted Cyclone
- Copperhead Strike
- Kentucky Flyer
- Maxx Force
This year was supposed to be an awesome list of coasters ridden during their opening year, but with COVID, who knows what will and what won't happen...
@Sky and myself are very on-the-fence about this Live, just because there is so much already happening in May. However, with all of these English friends joining the Live, it might be difficult to say no to joining. :)
You should just do the same thing as @Hutch, @Sky, and myself and fly into Dallas on Thursday so we can do SFOT on Friday. Man, I can see it now... Bunch of coaster enthusiasts carpooling together across Texas in a rented van, looking like we're headed to our Pee-wee Soccer match, driven by Papa...
Not that I hate them, and yes, I'll still ride it and probably enjoy the ride, because the color of the trains have nothing to do with how the ride actually runs, but they could have done so much better on these. Swing and a miss!
You know what would be ground-breaking, if they did it? A giga with a barrel roll downdrop, built by Intamin. Could you imagine?? ? Something that runs similar to i305 or Millennium Force, but at the predicted height of 355 ft... :oops:
What are your top 5 bucket list coasters??
1. Helix (Liseberg)
2. Dueling Dragons; both sides counted as one for this list (Guangzhou Sunac Land)
3. Zadra (Energylandia)
4. Taron (Phantasialand)
5. Hakugei (Nagashima Spa Land)
I have been a Star Wars fan for as long as I can remember. When they first announced this entire area, it scared me to my very core. I kept thinking, "What if the immersion isn't there? What if they don't get everything as perfect as I think it could be? What if it's just a big, cash-grabbing...
My biggest surprises are:
Copperhead Strike: Everything about that ride was just a surprise to me. That was my first ever Jo-jo Roll, and it definitely caught me off-guard the first time. The rest of the ride was really fun and surprising too. The ridiculous hang-time, and the ejector, really...
