CAC at Silverwood?

Friday, January 5, 2007 9:57 PM
I know I may have the answer to this already but thought I would get confirmation anyhow. Will there be a CAC event this year at Silverwood? I was told no but just wanted to double check.

Thanks.

Lisa

^Hehe. That's right Tina! Your coaster riding hobby is by far from being complete without having experienced these two woodies. But, just remember, I am and have been the Queen of the Silverwoodies, so once you ever visit, you will be in my domain and on my turf. LOL! You can be the Queen of Snappage but I AM the Queen of the Silverwoodies! I take this title with great pride. Hehe. (Wink, wink)

Coaster Alley is da place! Coaster Alley is da bomb!

I hope the two woodies are hybernating well.

Give me 2.1 of Timber Terror. YUM! You and Santi can have 25 laps on Tremors. That slam in the bottom of the second tunnel was a little too intense for my blood, thank you. It didn't used to be like that, and I'd gladly ask Hammersly to get that ride back to 2000 standards.

You readin' this, Jeff?

Actually I agree with this.

Hammersly explained (in detail) to me at an ACE event last year that he plans on smoothing out some of those "rough" edges on Tremors such as the slam in the bottom of the second tunnel and third hill (smasher turn). He said there's fake air then there's real air which does not slam you down into your seat. The second hill is something he's been wanting to tackle for a long while now since it's something that's not supposed to be there. He explained why it's there and what causes it.

I AM the queen of every seat (especially back ones) on Tremors and Timber Terror! *** Edited 1/7/2007 8:38:14 AM UTC by Lisa Zigweid***

That all DEPENDS on the seat of the train and condition of the track.

I "could" ride Tremors in the back "seats" without any issue. Mid train, that 2nd hill slam is a back-breaker.

Rides up front, or last on the train don't have this same effect. I'm not sure why.

Just changing the row in the car we rode in made a HUGE difference in the forces experienced.

None of what I wrote above matters if the coaster is "slow". ROFLMAO, slow is still "fun"!

So, when IS the next CAC?
(anything I can do to help?)

nasai's avatar Hell, everyone knows I'm a wimp when it comes to certain woodies. I don't have Voyage in my top 5, for God's sake. Too much for frail, OLD me. ;)

coasterqueenTRN's avatar Rob babe, you are not a wimp. You are just very picky and sensitive about wooden coasters like me. ;)

What I want to know is, and Bill and Lisa could probably answer this the best.......

Are Tremors and Timber Terror *MY* type of woodies?

Well, until Voyage came along, Tremors was my favorite wooden coaster anywhere. Timber Terror's up there, too, but it couldn't top Tremors. Between the two of them I totaled over 50 laps on my one CAC visit in 2003.

Whether that makes them Tina's "type" is a different question, but probably yes...

Acoustic Viscosity's avatar Tina, you'd love Timber Terror. Tremors is more lke the intensity of Legend and Ghostrider, so I don't know; you might not like it.

Fake airtime or not, that slam is so much fun. I hope it's not "ruined" by Jeff's good intentions. However, if he can get that thing screaming through the second half, I'll forgive him. ;) *** Edited 1/7/2007 7:56:52 PM UTC by Acoustic Viscosity***
