Did anyone see it on Travel?

Did anyone see THE WORLD'S BEST THRILL PARKS 11PM on Friday night? I saw most of it. It showed Steel Dragon 2000 and MF. All I can say is MF looks so much better!

I would have to say that I would take Steel Dragon 2000 over MF (based on looks alone). The only thing I would change would be to make SD2K's first drop steeper. Think of it literally like giant hyper coaster! Even if there isn't a larger amount of airtime on those hills than a normal hyper, it still would be better because you would feel much more vulnerable way up around 300. I also like the look of that bit tangled mess of track at the far end (several helixes, I believe?); that has to be fairly intense in order to get through those bunny hills on the way back. Don't get me wrong, I loved MF, but to one who loves hyper coasters, the SD2K looks like the winner for someone who loves airtime.

Well I don't get the Travel Channel, but my awsome G/f taped it for me!

If FoF got that great of a makeover than why can't I?

I saw that program when it first aired a few months ago, and I have it on tape. I agree that MF looks way better than Steel Dragon. I hate how it shows Dana Morgan saying that it's the tallest, fastest, and best coaster in the world. I think he's got just a bit too much of an ego.

They said that (something) garden's park has the oldest coaster. Isn't it in PA? I heard a lot of stuff that wasn't true in that show. But MF looked great!
Edit: I expected to see Jeff on there, instead of that guy from Thrill Ride.

(something) Gardens is Tivoli Gardens. To me that looks like an unimpressive park... Not enough thrills, oh well. Not like I was planning on going there.

I will settle this semi-debate, Steel Dragon looks very good, Millennium Force looks ugly. Both are not worth my time, so I don't give a care.

Thanks. Does it really have the oldest coaster?

It did. It's Scenic Railway opened in 1913.

What about the Leap-The-Dips in PA, 1902?
