Re: Six Flags Over Texas: Rider Dies

Not sure if it's the best video for it, but I can hear clicking when they pull down the restraint.

Re: Six Flags Over Texas: Rider Dies

^ The renovation was far more than just a simple re-tracking or re-profiling, the entire track was built and modified utilizing Rocky Mountain Construction’s new I-Box track system—steel track that replaces the layers of wood which form the track. While most of the footprint remains the same or very...

It was only an idea, and I doubt CW would pick it up. I also have an idea that CW will have the first 500 foot coaster where it is launched like a S&S Air Tower (riders face upwards and you launch towards the sky) buuuuuuuuttt... that will never happen.

Re: 2014 at Canada's Wonderland

I know this might be way out of the way. But I was always thinking that Canada's Wonderland (or chain-wide) should enhance their season passes. There should be points given for each attraction, what food you buy, etc. Something you would see at Best Buy, Cineplex, etc. For example: At every entrance...

With Cedar Fair, the year following a new coaster, is the exact same and I really do not like that because it's not exciting (and the forums are very quite all year). You miss the cheap clo...

Voyager never had bad a layout; it only got rough over time. Meanwhile, Time Warp has always been rough.

I agree with you, but we do have much better flat rides (excluding maXair and Power Tower)
