Let's see how accurate the rumors section was...

New hyper coaster for Elitch Gardens?(5/8/2000)
New Six Flags in Southeast Michigan?(5/8/2000)
Paramounts Carowinds may get version of Stealth(5/7/2000)
Wild Adventures woodie(5/7/2000)
Pieces of a New Coaster Track?(5/3/2000)
Disney Moving Coaster?(5/2/2000)
Arrows new wheel design(5/2/2000)
Giga coaster sounds more and more realistic for Kennywood(4/25/2000)
Six Flags America to receive standup?(4/22/2000)
CCI Coaster headed for Idlewild?(4/21/2000)

Did any of these come true? (I guess Carowinds eventually GOT Stealth ;) )

Well, SFA was approved to build a Stand-up coaster, but they never did. Arrow sort of made a new wheel design, if you consider the interesting wheel arangement for X. It wasn't a new Six Flags park for Michigan, but instead a new Cedar Fair park.

Kennywood and a GIGA coaster??? That is the worst rumor I have EVER heard LMFAOOOO!!!!

That is like SFMM running all their coasters on the same day.

It isn't EVER gonna happen! *** Edited 4/13/2005 8:00:54 PM UTC by CoastinKatie***

So....which version of Stealth did PCar end up with? ;)

WA woodie did come to pass, but getting them to reconsider those G-trains sure is proving dificult...

Is 2001 really "the old days"? ;)

Gator: In terms of people believing their park would get four coasters next year? And honestly should get them because they fully 'deserve' them? Yeah, I guess.

Hard to believe that 2000 was half a decade ago!

2000 as the "old days"?

I guess in Internet time we could equate 2000 as like the 1970's. Someone should photoshop a little 'fro and chops (big @ss sideburns, depending on what generation you are from) on Mr. Buzzer.

Reading some of those topics. Quite a few things that you were talking about have happend. Someone was talking about the US getting a dive machine, or a flying coaster but he said he doubts it.

Even then they say SoB had a bad layout. :)

"Old days"? Check the rollback! If you don't remember WoC, then you don't remember the old days...;)

Is the asking price for WoC's rollercoaster.com domain still $50,000?

It's easy to look back at the old CB design and laugh (or cringe), but I'd bet it wasn't too far off as far as the "standard" for the time.

Thank God, Jeff doesn't deal in the rumors market anymore. :)

"The World's First and Only Member Driven Coaster Portal."

Ha, that's *almost* as bad as Cedar Point's silly PR propganda.

I miss the yellowy-cream background though (and the lack of ads [and don't tell me how to get rid of the ads, I'm fully aware])

Nope... he sold out to a Web spammer. What a waste of a good name!

Hey, at the time, it was true! It's still the first. Those were simpler times, when the entire site ran on a shared server for a big $50 per month.

Ouch, that sucks. Probably the most high profile domain name for the enthusiast community and a web spammer has it.

That's just wrong.

I'm disappointed...I saw "old days" and I was thinking the 60's.

Six Flags really WAS looking at land in southeast michigan. So was Disney at about the same time, if I recall correctly.

So although it might be considered a rumor, it was based on fact.
