So the word Swoosh is now trademarked? Do I owe you money for using the word in the above sentence?

not sure but I know you can fall off a turnip truck.
Turns out the first Jack O'Lantern was a hollowed out turnip.
"I did not know that" im my best Johnny Carson impression, "that is weird wild stuff"

Back on topic;
if the layout that First Drop shows is acurate or close to acurate I am looking forward to this ride. Looks like a nice family coaster and I am all for parks adding family coasters.
My concerns was with the the seats, which turned out to not be from S&S, and with the noise issue which I am sure can be dealt with by the engineers.
still looking forward to a wood coaster in the SDC woods though :P

I'm sure SDC has researched the 'sound' problem. But I could care less if it was loud or not as long as it is a fun ride. And that is all I ask for.
Who is also looking forward to a new wood coaster in the woods.

What can you get from a turnip? If you treat it well you can get a free trip on M:TR (I'll take a ride, please..... )

We didn't need that MI-Coaster Guy.
Well even if there IS a noise problem, it won't matter as it will play into the "explosion" theme that the ride will have. [/SPOILER]
The ride will be a lot of fun and I agree Jim (I thought you weren't going to look at the layout!) that family coasters = cool. Spinning Dragons is quite popular at WOF and it's a family coaster.

The Mummy qualifies as a "family launched coaster", and I couldn't be any happier with it....EVERY trip to IoA will include a stop at Universal from this point forward...
*Family coasters* are oftentimes the must FUN...:)

I tried to not look at the layout but my interest got the best of me. I am a weak person.
Had not thought about the noise of the launch being tied in with the 'blowed up real good' theme of the ride.

Poweder keg what?!

I guess I don't understand what you are trying to say Bill, want to try again?
Tuesday, May 4, 2004 10:42 AM
Umm..... I can't do that.
Lets see... nope. My bad.
I leave now in silence.
Bill, who's going down to the city this weekend.
Tuesday, May 4, 2004 12:23 PM
Bill, take your camera this time when you go to the city and email me them (you know the address). I will be at SFStL this Saturday, otherwise I would come down as well.
