Cornball Express way overbanked pic!

Take a look at this awesome picture that Scott Holmes sent me: http://www.angelfire.com/mac/coasters/cornball.jpg

That's the climb into the second hill! Looks really awesome to me...I think it will be another amazing coaster that will be over-looked...but oh well. Less waiting time for me! ;)

For the 1000000th time. On many of these links, you need to copy and paste the URL into the box. just clicking it won't work.

Yeah, I can't stand angelfire. Many hosting sites won't let you link directly to pics.

hmm, well, it worked for me. Anyways, that picture is REALLY awsome. Reminds me of the first turn on SOB in a big way. AMybe that was the inspiration.

The trick is, you need to type the url in your browser, not paste it. I know it's inconvenient, but it's the only thing I can do for now.

He wasn't trying to be rude, I don't think, but the past few days, people have been having troubles with links like these and the only way to see the pic if you have the problem is to type it in your browser, not paste it, and hit enter.

Great pic as always. CCI is the only company in the world that can make a junior coaster that looks this good.

Sometimes it's not what you say but how you say it. "For the 1000000th time"! sounds rude to me, unless he was joking. I haven't read any of those former posts, so how would I know?

Let me try to explain this again. Cornball Express is not a junior coaster. Junior statistics by Custom Coaster's site says 40 ft. high and 30 mph. Cornball Express is 80 ft. high (10 ft. off from Cheetah being built this year too) and 45 mph which over-qualifies it as a family thriller.

Soggy's avatar I wouldn't exactly call the turn "overbanked," but you are right... this will most likely be one of the best of 2001, despite its size.

True...overbanked is like Millennium Force's first hill. I suppose you would just call that...umm...lol...really tilted for a wooden coaster.

Glitch --

I was with Scott and Carol yesterday as we toured the construction site. That turn is very, very cool looking! One of the builders said it was a 33ยบ bank. Looked a little more severe to me, but that's what he said.

BTW, cannot wait to try this thing out! There are so many headchoppers it's unreal. Looks like a decent backseat ride.
