Now where the heck would I ever find 31 close friends to ride this thing? OK, so my loyalty and friendship can be bought...

You can always as some of us CBuzzers out here. *cough cough* ;)

Is it me or in the video on Kennywood.com does one of the girls say Holy S***? She is wearing a grey sweatshirt and is the fourth group shown with a guy wearing a Oregon State sweatshirt? What do you think?

Heh. She sure does. :)

That's hilarious! Talk about a double take. That reminds me of a Mission:SPACE preview video that I have when a young lady ettered the same words, although that instance is harder to detect. But it's not like we've not let a few slip time to time. :) Definitely funny it makes it that far though. *** Edited 4/5/2005 11:27:12 PM UTC by OHIcOaster***

Haha, just like in the Kennywood Memories video from a while back... The girl on the Laser Loop screams, and when they go through the loop backwards, she very noticeably screams, "holy s**t!! I believe they use the sound bite for the intro, and cut it off before that part.

And of course, all creativeness fails me at the moment. At least I have something to think about in school now. ;)

darn.... team members can't enter :(
Tuesday, April 5, 2005 7:57 PM
PM me your submission and I'll enter it ;).

Its not like I know 30 people to take to Pitt anyhow, I'd probably just invite Pittsburgh Area Buzzers (gonch? lori? Brett?) to join in with me :). You can invite the rest if it wins ;).

Naw, but thanks for asking. I like the general design of the ride. Will fit the LK area very well. Hey kpjb is that the final look of the ride? Or will it change depending on the name chosen? I think it should stay that way. Very KWish!

I'll be expecting the invite if you win, Tekno. :)
Tuesday, April 5, 2005 8:04 PM
Gonch, I've sent in over 10 solid names already. Thank you RCT!

If I win, I'll probably come myself to the park, and only have a couple friends to invite from Morgantown, so you're defnintly invited (along with Gonchette and the Gonchlings) with an invite to probably Katie, Greg, Brett, and Lori (& fam) invited as well.

Keep your fingers crossed if I win (and I expect to be invited if you do too;))!

I don't get an invite too :(
Tuesday, April 5, 2005 8:11 PM
I said "Pitt Area Buzzers", that means you ;)

If I were to win, I'd probably post it on here and have anybody that wanted to RSVP to ride.

Not that I'll probably win, I had a great name for Visionland's coaster and didn't get picked :(.

Ok! :)

Wow I feel special :) Are you going to buy everyone a meal from Small Fry's too? ;) Please? Please?

Personally I'm disappointed in the ride, I think it's going to block out a lot of the view of Lost Kennywood - seems like everything by S&S is fugly beyond fugly and structures all seem way overdesigned. But hey, if it keeps the peeps comin', bring it on.

And if it means I get a free trip to Kennywood, that's even better ;)

IMHO, the ride doesn't look overdesigned. I don't understand why it would block out a view from Lost Kennywood, it's gonna be along the end of the property where Wipeout was. And when your in the park walking down the midway you will still be able to see everything you could when WO was there.

Yeah free trips to KW are cool!:)!

I now dislike name-the-ride contests

Because of the bad name they chose that wasn't very original or something else.
