"Diaster Zone" at Cedar Point...

Wednesday, April 19, 2006 6:41 PM
I haven't been to Cedar Point in a long time, is'nt there a ride called "Diaster Zone" that is like Disneylands Matterhorn and a 3-D roller coaster?! Is it even still open?

It's actually called Disaster Transport, and what it is is an enclosed bobsled ride. Similar to La Vibora at Six Flags over Texas. As for the 3-D part, it really isn't. You can buy the glasses for the wait line and check out the stuff painted in trippy neon paint, but for the actual ride it is entirely dark.....

Ever heard of Google?

Google would not help if he had the name wrong.

Cedar Point sure would.

Really though, did he know enough about the ride to find it on the cedar point website. Come on it is not that hard to answer a simple question without making him feel bad about asking the question.

The problem is that he has made numerous topics that have been of a trollish and/or flamebait nature.

Fact is PizzaGuy was lazy. He could have easily gone to the park's website and had an answer in under 30 seconds...long before the first reply came in about 13 minutes later.

Yeah, It's not like he has started 20 threads in the last few days or so, is it? ;)

Welcome to CoasterBuzz, Pizzaguy. My friendly advice is to lurk around a little while to see how everything works. CoasterBuzz is a little different than a lot of other message baords.

Well I think that it was a harmless question that when taken out of the context of his trollish or flaming nature then it would have been answered without a hitch. I did not know about his other posts. Since he did not even know the correct name of the ride, could he have found the right ride? I don't know.

If I sound grouchy, it is because I am not having a great day, so disregard my grouchiness. (I seriously am not a grouchy person)

He asked a question and it was answered. Get a life! I wonder how many of you would respond if you were face to face with someone on the street!
Wednesday, April 19, 2006 9:52 PM
Or tell the person don't ask me look it up!

"I wonder how many of you would respond if you were face to face with someone on the street!"

Depends...does he have a laptop and a wireless interent connection when he asks? ;)

Seriously, though..."on the street" and "on the internet" is an apples/oranges comparison and doesn't pertain in this instance.

a_hoffman_50, you don't sound grouchy at all to me.

I would smile and tell him to look it up himself too, if he had an internet connection right there and Cedar Points website was a click away, and the effort it required it to tell him the answer was going to be more than just speaking it to him...yep, I agree...apples/oranges.

I would react the same way I react online. I don't think it is really apples and oranges. Maybe lemons and oranges but not apples and oranges.

It is an apples/oranges thing because in person you have tone of voice and facial expressions, something you do not always the luxury of when reading a post here at CB.

True, but I think of this as more of a conversational forum and not some formal thing where we are limited in our discussions. So in the respect that it is more of a discussion then I would deem it lemons/oranges different fruit, not exactly the same but with similarities, but not apples/oranges, both are fruits but not the same at all. An example of what I would consider apples/oranges would be like a blog without commentary. One person can share with the world what he thinks, but no one can directly say anything about it on site. (Are we off topic or what? I chalk it up to boredom/anxiously waiting for our beloved coasters to open. I don't wanna hear it you people down in Florida!) *** Edited 4/20/2006 2:37:24 AM UTC by a_hoffman50***

What if we all posted "harmless" questions. The board would be filled with 2 post threads. The point is, as Moosh said, he had plenty of information to take the five seconds to find the answer on his own.
