30 coasters in 24 hours? Cheaters!

Tuesday, May 29, 2001 1:04 PM
Just about all of us watched this show last night, but I was wondering, Don't you think Team GRP should of had to wait in line? Shoundn't cutting be considered cheating? Thoughts anyone?

Coasters are coasters. These are Guinness rules, not ours. The only similar disqualification, as I understand it, is that you not break a LAW, not tweak a park rule with its cooperation. I wonder if there's a rule that says you have to ride during regular operating hours -- it looked to me like Knott's wasn't open yet when they were there.

They should have to, but the people before them didn't. I think the rule for that record should be you must wait in line. I doubt the 29 coaster holders cut, also, thats why they were allowed to cut. Oh, I would have booed them too, just because they cheated. And kiddie coasters!?!?! Come on! Well, they are coasters...

The way I look at it, CP and MM count kiddie coasters in thier coaster count war, so they should count for the record project too!

Please. Rollercoasters are rollercoasters. It doesn't matter if they are 20 feet tall or 300 feet tall.

the big cheat in that was when they rode two boomerangs. if they count that as being two coasters then why not just stay in one park and keep riding the same coasters over and over?

I think they should of had to stayed in the lines. Of course there going to reach the record if they cut in front of everyone. Oh well, the show was still pretty cool. I thought it was pretty well done.

If they waited in line and had to go only when the park was open, then they might as well stayed at SFMM. There was what like 12-13 coaster at the time of the show, anybody could of done that. Heck I bet half of you SFMM goers have rode every coaster there in one day.

The only thing that I didn't like was that it seemed like close to half of them was kiddie coasters. Seemed like a quick and easy way to get more coasters.

Where do you draw the line between 'kiddie' and real coasters? Some 'kiddie' coasters run faster than mine trains, should we discount those as well.

CHEATERS? No Way!!!

1) A coaster is a coaster...where did it say it could not include "kiddie"/"junior" coasters...

2) Wait in line? No way....not when the World Record is at stake...

I think it was closed!

Yeah Flashback had to have been closed. Because Psyclone was opened and Psyclone hasn't been opened since the end of last year. Which was probably when the show was filmed, therefore Flashback WAS closed. And I don't think they cheated, they did what they had to do and did it well. I thought it was funny when the older guy got off Boomerang at Knott's and said "once was enough for that one"...lol... It seriously is time for Knott's to tear that P.O.S. down.

They should of waited in line. That is cheating if they skip the line, but heck, I don't care.
