crazy horse's avatar Here...


I was wondering how long it would take them to do this.

what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.
I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

SFoGswim's avatar You mean you didn't enjoy your 75 seconds of fame?
Welcome back, red train, how was your ride?!

Mamoosh's avatar The first 74 seconds were awesome but it all went to hell at the last second.

CoasterDiscern's avatar I was looking at the third webcam on CP site and wanted to ask someone if that is a train on the left of the screen. It looks like the red train with the color yellow OTSR. Can someone confirm this for me.
It's hard to see, but it looks like it to me.
Ask not what you can do for a coaster, but what a coaster can do for you.

Holy freaking bump, Batman!

Yes, that is a train. They mentioned in their blog a few weeks ago that they were going to begin "pull through" testing and I'm assuming that's what is going on. Here is the blog link:

CoasterDiscern's avatar WOW guys, thanks. Thats totally awsome.
Ask not what you can do for a coaster, but what a coaster can do for you.

ApolloAndy's avatar Here's something I never got: They did the same pull through on MF with the wooden thing (Check rcdb for a photo) and yet you could still whack a support with your hand in one of the overbanks, right?

What happened there?

You have to be leaning out pretty far to hit the support on MF. I would think the wooden thing is mainly meant to simulate "normal" hand raising on a ride and not the aforementioned leaning. (speaking from wisdom learned the hard way)

^^^ I don't think my hand has ever been more numb than after whacking that support.

I hope I can get out to ride this this summer. The ride looks amazing.

Mutedarkness, it's definitely not a watercoaster, but I don't think this coaster is for CP - they're just putting it there temporarily to throw us off. They'll move it eventually...

...to MiA! ;)

DawgByte II's avatar If you hit your hand on a MF support, then you either must be really tall, or really stretching the means of the 'norm, and only have yourself to blame. It'd be about the same as trying to reach under the train & feeling the steel tubular track, accidentally having the train roll over your fingers... owch.

This picture makes me think the hand slapping may have been pretty common. At least more common than getting your hand run over by the train.

That picture looks 'shopped. Not saying that it is fake, but doesn't look legitimate. Where on the ride is that, BTW?
