I think you meant Taiwan, not Thailand, Moosh.

They all look the same.


Yes, for the uncultured, they certainly do.

Andy's Asian...that's the joke, dude. He's certainly not uncultured!

Actually, not to get this thread way off balance here, but research as shown that "they all look the same" might be more a product of the way our brain works and processes visual information. It has a lot to do with people of whatever race are usually raised with and by people of their same race for the most part, so in adulthood it is harder to recognize subtle differences in facial features in people of differing heritages.

So as an example, if you're white and honestly think that "they" (whoever "they" may be) all look the same just remember they may just as easily think us white folks all look the same, too. ;) *** Edited 8/12/2006 10:57:26 PM UTC by matt.***

When I went to Thailand people looked more Indian compaired to other places in Asia like China or Japan. Also there writing is a whole lot different. Thialand there writing is more like sandsrit compiared to Chinese simbles.

Also Griffon i bet will have a lot bigger drop then 205 feet because of all those trenches, vallys, and revenes. But I could always be wrong.

While this could be true, take a look at my very informative diagram comparing regular coasters and drop coasters on hills:

As you can clearly see, it is much harder for a drop ride to "work the terrain" on its first drop because of its angle of descent. I don't know much about Williamsburg's landscape, but I doubt it would be steep enough to make much of a difference.


Welcome back, red train, how was your ride?!

I love the not-so-subtle "DIVE" at the bottom, lol

This was posted on another site, but makes perfect sense and you can check it out yourself.

Don't forget to set your clocks.

It's time for our new attraction to dock.

Vital information will be relevealed.

Exclusive details until then are concealed.

I've got to say, that was pretty cleaver of them. Maybe it's going to be a stand-up dive machine?

Maybe it's just me, but in that video, at the beginning when the train begins up the lift, you can see the turn, drop, MCBR and second vertical drop... it looks just like Sheikra from the little bit we can see.

It looks like it, but as you can see:

Sheikra's MCBR is almost directly over the first drop, which it is not in this new coaster. The MCBR is on the opposite side of the lift as the drop.
