Just 10 more days 'til the Tremors / Timber Terror face/off.

My money is on Tremors, but I am open to testing that theory a good 50 times or so before I make it a law. :)

Timber Terror has got it going on. Tremors is shaking in its boots.

TrEmOrS is the ONLY wooden coaster I make the effort to "spell out" in such a way...that thing is COMPLETELY insane...
The suspense is killing me...I hope it'll last! :)

TT is incredibly rerideable... I don't think Tremors is, no matter how wonderfully engineered a ride it is. I just about die on Tremors after 10 or so rides. :(
Then again, you can always run back and forth between rides... taking breathers as it were. ;)
No matter what, everyone should go to CAC, and Moosh deserves a huge hand (along with Dave) for arranging this awesome event!
Especially since it's been revived from the enthusiast grave.

A big Thanks! to both of them.
However, it appears Chain Dog Media's next event might have a hard time living up to this one.:)

"Nothing wrong with a little airtime"... :)
I find TrEmOrS to be highly rerideable....but I have an exceptionally high tolerance...;)
Much thanks to Matthew and Dave!
...and just for Jimvy...this is the *good* M&D, LOL.... :-P

Timber Terror is the more "complete ride" with no dull spots but Tremors has BY FAR the best opening salvo of any of the 90 woodies I've ridden. The drop, tunnel, bunny, tunnel, rise, and lateral slam are superb! And the ending tunnel combo is great, too.

Certainly agreed there, Moosh! It does have a MASSIVE opening. ;)

I'm sorry I can not make this CAC, as that is the best ERT I've ever had. It was about one train of us that just kept going and going and going. When I needed a break, I'd take a few laps on Timber Terror, as it had airtime, but was butter smooth with a Cornball-ish last little turn that was somehow smooth. Great coasters, pretty nice little park.
I would have to say our riding tolerances are on the same level, Bill. I seem to recall you were one of the insane ones (as was I) still taking Tremor rides at the end of the ERT. :)
Everyone going to CAC this year, you're going to have a BLAST.

I would have to say our riding tolerances are on the same level, Bill.
Thanmks Parker, I do pretty well for an old guy...:)
I will also have to say that "the opening salvo" on BoulderDash this last time around *did* strike me as inifintely more impressive than my last time at LC (with Moosh and the gang). It was RIGHT up there near the insanity that is TrEmOrS....until the rampy hill preceding the turnaround, then B-Dash became quite a *mortal* out-n-back. TrEmOrS, OTOH, just KEEPS delivering HUGE doses of airtime, laterals, tunnels, and intensity throughout.
Leaving the day after tomorrow...may just have to turn in the return flight to move to Coeur D'Alene...;)

If you ever get a chance Bill, try to hit Boulderdash at one of the events that provide evening ERT. I was just there last weekend for one and the ride was delivering air in the front and back like I've never felt before on it (even better than last years event). This trip definitley elevated my opinion of nighttime rides on it.
I wish so much I could make it to CAC and was looking forward to it since Moosh announced it last spring. Unfortunately, with a new job comes no vacation yet or otherwise I'd be there. I will be there next go around though. I'll have to make do with Holli-wood rides the weekend after.;) Here's to everybody having a blast at the event.:)
