Coasterbuzz is to coasters as ___ is to parks?

Thursday, October 23, 2003 7:36 PM
I really enjoy this forum for coaster info, and I'm looking for a more general forum/site for amusement/theme parks. I'm sure somebody here can recommend a park forum of exceptional quality so point me in the right direction. Thanks!

Anything about amusement parks is fair game here.

Coasterbuzz is to coasters, as Parkbuzz is to Parks?

Hey, I'm just rationalizing like I used to for those types of questions on tests in school..... ;)

It's a trick question. Here's the answer--


CoasterBuzz : Coasters :: Coasterbuzz : Parks

Its tough to find a site that focuses on the parks itself. Coasterbuzz is pretty good of mixing it up. There are some great fan sites on individual parks out there, but, they are just one park.

Let me ask this question? Why, if I want a map of a Six Flags park, I have to find a fan site for it? Is it too much to ask nowadays?

So that means I can start a topic about Disney topiary sculptures here and not get bashed or it get closed?

Discussing topiary sculptures on any site is going to get you bashed. Except for on topiarysculpturebuzz.com. But even then you're going to run into animalian topiary sculpture fanboys arguing with abstract topiary sculpture fanboys...

Why wouldn't you start a topic about topiary sculptures? Anything amusement industry related is fair game here. Besides, ANY topic is going to get bashed at one point or another.

Although I wouldn't expect too much bashing for a thread about topiary sculptures. After all, this is the same site that has a whole section dedicated to that stupid DDR game. The only thing that game is good for is to get a good laugh watching N-SYNC wannabies (and why you would want to have anything to do with N-SYNC, I don't know) try to impress the 14-year old girls walking by who frankly couldn't give a rip. To each his own, I guess.

So topiary sculptures; let's see it! All the tree-trimming buzz you can handle!

Every post gets ripped at one point or another. It comes with the territory.

That's not why they've got a DDR forum here at all,the reason for the DDR forum is quite simple actually.

It's because that rather stupid & pointless game just happens to be found in the arcades of most major theme parks,but I guess to each thier own as was already mentioned above.

Back on topic,I'm sure you already know that as long as you don't post anything that's start a flame war(ie park A vs parkB type threads) or rumors then just about anything else is exceptable.

You know what cracks me up? There's no one who's indifferent to DDR. Everyone who doesn't play it hates it with a passion. I don't understand it. I don't like Tekken 4, but I don't stand around in the arcade and make fun of people who play it.

BATWING, I'd like to see you name a video game that's not "pointless." As long as the person playing it is having fun, then it's fulfilling its purpose exactly.

And, I guarantee neither you nor Danimales has ever tried it.

EDIT: Oh yeah, Danimales, I challenge you to find a DDR song that sounds anything like NSYNC. In fact, I challenge you to find a single DDR player who likes NSYNC.

/rant ;)

Oh, no, did I hurt your feelings because my opinion isn't the same as yours? awww....

Survey Says! BUZZZZ! Wrong! What, are you going to guarrantee that Iraq has WMDs too? Fact is, yes, I have tried it. A couple times actually. Even watching it, I thought, 'boy, that looks dumb.' But hey, why not try it. So I did, and didn't do too bad, but still, I just don't like it. Deal with it.

Granted, DDR has a wide variety of music, but mostly I have heard boy band music come from that machine. And second, if you read my post, I didn't say that it played N-SYNC music (but yes, I believe it does), just that there are some who play it, who, instead of just pressing the buttons with their feet, try to incorporate boy-bandesque hip shakes, twists, arm movements, and that weird look on their faces that N-SYNC gets when some preteen has all her hormones directed on them.

Anyway, Some like it, some don't, and there's nobody who's inbetween to my knowledge. That's fine.

The real question here is, where is the topiary sculpture thread?

The reason I'm a little defensive is because I'm baffled by the things I hear when I'm playing. People are so narrow-minded that they can't mind their own business and walk on by... they have to make comments and prove how shallow they are (i.e. "That game is gay.").

Anyway, I guarantee you that you've never heard NSYNC or any popular boy band coming out of a DDR machine, unless you're playing a European version, which I highly doubt. Either that, or you're confused with Pump it Up. I can't think of a single DDR song that even *sounds* like a boy band. Most of the songs with vocals are by women.

The action of moving a joystick and hitting some buttons isn't quite as funny-looking as that of dancing around on a bunch of arrows. That's just me, though. ;)

You want to see something funny, watch someone play that horse-racing game. ;)

HA! The horse racing game! Oh my... I played that thing once, and thought to myself, 'hmmm.. this is a strange motion...'

Then I watched somebody else do it after me. Haven't played it since!

Ok, I admit I've played that...but only after a few beers. Dave & Buster's rules.

Only problem was, my horse didn't go anywhere (I don't mean the fibreglass 'horse' I was sitting on--that obviously didn't go anywhere)--the one on the screen didn't get past the starting line. Then I noticed a burning smell, and some smoke started eminating from the base of my trusty steed. That ended my game rather abruptly.

The next big thing in "games" at parks... combining the big hit of the '80's and the big hit of the '90's... That's right... A game that combines both DDR and Whack-a-Mole. One player jumps around on a bunch of arrows while another player takes this BIG sledge hammer....
