Well, many of you are already aware of this, but I'm not the most up-to-date person when it comes to coaster news. Seems this coaster debuted last season in BonBon Land (home of the Dog Fart coaster). I thought it looked so neat, I'd share:


Looks like an inexpensive model. I wonder if any US parks will snatch one up one of these day? After riding SOB, I wonder how comfortable the seating is.

I heard about it but never heard of anyone that has ridden one. To me it looks like a wild mouse on crack. I'm not sure what to think about though. That one turn looks crazy right before the loop!

If you never heard of that you may not have heard of the S&S Screaming Squirrel. Imangine getting to the end of the track and going and turning 180 then going upsidedown right underneath the track you were just on! http://www.screamscape.com/html/s_s_screaming_squirrel.html

How many times must we go through this. This has been brought up numerous times over the past 3 years(since it was just a concept drawing by the manufacturer in a magazine) . Use the search feature. I understand how you could not be up to date, but please use the search feature.

EDIT- Sorry about this post- I was in a very bad mood at the time. *** Edited 1/15/2004 10:09:40 PM UTC by Stitch***

Everything you want to know about the new "Typhoon" Coaster is available here:


A detailed construction diary, also available in english.

Screamscape has linked some footage of test runnings at the Gerstlauer factory. Everybody who has ridden it is full of praise.

Ooops...well, ain't the first time I've been unoriginal, or forgot to use the wonderful search tool.

Sorry folks, especially to Stitch, for having ruined his otherwise perfect evening.

For shame Stitch.

No wonder mlariccy an dexter thinks we are noobs, so quick to point out spelling errors, misuse of coaster facts and not using the search tool. Oh the humanity! ;)

The search tool is a wonderful thing! *** Edited 1/14/2004 8:50:22 PM UTC by SFWoARules!***

Okay, enough already! Sheesh. Sure, I recycled a topic. Perhaps a mod should have closed it. But who am I to tell them how to do their job (or help them for that matter)?

Stitch, you weren't the first to point it out, Olsor managed to make a point without being nasty or getting into a huff.

Don't tell me your doody don't stink...after all, you did remind me that there is a search tool... ;)

"..there is *a* search tool.." ooops. And to clarify, I ain't the first one in this thread to slip up... ;)

Think of your "happy place", with a hot chick feeding you pitchers of beer in a white lace outfit....(aka Happy Gilmour).

What gives? You don't see the snowbumpers up here getting huffy when a thread is recycled. The same happened on the Thunderhead thread. Are we not riding enough, or playing enough Tycoon? Stitch, you said, "3 years", that means you covered a lot of forums in that time. Just remember the great 80's line from another Sandler film, "Relax, don't do it" -- Hollywood, Frankie goes to.

On to the topic: wicked looking coaster. Thanks.

Sorry about that post. I was in a very bad mood at the time. I hereby take back the attitude used in that post. I'll use it as I reminder not to do the same, whenever I am about to take out my anger on fell buzzers. Out.
