Uh, not a mod or anything, but is this allowed?

Eh. It's a pointer to a discussion about using an iPod at a park to pass away the time in line. Nothing wrong with that.

However, I will point out here that using a hard drive based MP3 player, such as an iPod, on a roller coaster would be hazardous *to the player*. Laptop hard drives are built to take some abuse, but there's no sense in risking a head crash needlessly.

Yea, I would never bring an expensive object such as an iPod to the amusement park in the first place, nevermind take it on TTD.

Sorry, I wasn't trying to be a bad guy or anything. Hell, I don't even really know what an Ipod is... ;)

WOW! According that forum SFMM has gotten 3 or 4 new coasters since last *season*! Guess that settles the 'most coasters at one park' record once and for all ;)

Yeah, I'm always amused when roller coasters come up in non-coaster forums. Some of the things people believe are quite amusing.

Rob, the iPod is Apple's hard-drive-based portable MP3 player. It's nice, but personally I think it's overpriced for what you get. I'm quite happy with my Creative Labs Jukebox. I know some other CBers have other MP3 players, such as a Jukebox Zen. They offer massive amounts of storage (I have 280 CDs stored on mine, with enough room for at least 200 more) and are much more convenient to carry than, say, a CD (or even MiniDisc) player with that much media. My Jukebox is one of the larger ones, and it's about the size of a typical portable CD player.

SFNE Freak -- the iPod is a lot less expensive than the digital cameras, video cameras, etc., that many of us bring with us to the park all the time. As long as you're intelligent with it and don't do dumb things (like try to use it ON THE RIDE), there's really no real risk.

Is it the real yellow or the yellow that they had on the coaster cars??

I've got an iPod too. Though I've never brought it to a park.

I have a not hard drive based, but similar Sony MD player - the new kind with the 5 hour capability. I plan on that being my companion while I'm in California (unless I find a really rich friend in the next 2 weeks!)

But yet you bring a hefty Digital Camera?
