We all know that every new coaster is billed as the "world's greatest ride ever built," (by people other than Paul Ruben. ;)) But I'm wondering if there has been any big coasters recently that have millions thrown in and have been complete flops and fancy sceneary? I'll throw out the first name, Mean Streak.
Deja Vu, V2 @ Marine World, Steel Dragon, Wind Jammer, Wind Jammer, Wind Jammer, Wind Jammer, Wind Jammer, Wind Jammer, Wind Jammer, And of course, Wind Jammer. And maybe Kingda Ka. I hated it enough that SF clones most of their rides, but now they are cloning sombody else's ride ( and throwing in a bunny hop...reeeeaaaallll cooool. not!)
Mean Streak..heck no. You should have seen the queues and happy riders the first 3-4 years. It was a smash success. It's just suffering from age, and is also in a remote location.
Steel Dragon? heck no. It too was/is a smash success (one of the best steel I've ever ridden!), just currently closed but will reopen soon (next year or so supposedly....and that's fast for the Japanese!)
Windjammer..heck yes. Deja Vu...it is in my book! But what first came to my mind.....what myself and others thought might be the greatest coaster even when announced....................SOB. Go ahead, flame away (but judging by the SOB thread, I won't get many!) *** Edited 3/19/2005 5:12:26 AM UTC by Peabody***
