Did anyone see the new coaster show?

Tuesday, December 4, 2001 6:48 PM
I just saw the new roller coaster show on TNC. It was called Top Ten Thrill Rides. It featured Golioth, Riddler's, Superman:TE, Millenium F., Buzzaw Falls, Big Shot, Volcano, Stealth, Cyclone, Alpengeist. It was a cool show which aired at 6:00 p.m. Pacific Time. Who saw it?

I don't know what TNC stands for.  or if I have heard of the stataion, then its full name is escaping me right now.  is this a typo or just some station that I haven't heard of?

I must say that Buzzaw Falls looks pretty cool, I've never ridden it before, but the pictures impressed me. I was shocked when Milenium Force took the #1 spot.

TLC. I just watched it. I think it wasn't very recent. It was corny as hell though, especialy the s:ue bit. How Stealth ranks above Riddler's Revenge is beyond me.

Does anyone but me get tired of seeing the Cyclone on these shows?  It seems like it's on every one of them.

Cyclone is a classic coaster, and is extremely popular. I never get tired of classics

The show isn't new.  I saw it last Christmas(2000).

I know it's a classic, but still... it doesn't need to be on practically every coaster show.  It's almost as annoying as coaster shows that end with the last 20 minutes talking about simulators... ugh!

Buzzsaw Falls is definitely the best log flume there is. I loved that ride. Of course with the exception of the musty smell in the queue line. (dont know if anyone else noticed that). I remember when my cousin chickened out because she was afraid shed fall out. It was really funny.

Wasn't Cyclone demolished?  I think it was this site that said it.  Might have been Thrill Ride when it was still open.

You're probably confusing it with Thunderbolt.

Just got done watching Secret World of Amusement Parks.  A little outdated I would say.  I love the couple of statements at the end talking about the demise of wooden roller coaster because of the advent of newer steel designs and VR.  They also say that fewer wooden coasters are being built every year.  Just a little out of date (unless they don't count CCI's and GCI's).  While their aren't many companies building wooden coasters, they are definately the best around since the classic designers of years past.  As far as the VR and simulator stuff, I didn't even watch that part of the show (taped it and then ff'd through it).  I remember one show where a guy who worked for the Disney 'park' that used to be in Chicago was declaring that real coasters are a thing of the past because of what simulators can do.  Well, first of all if I ever met they guy I'd slap him around a little, then I'd take him on a real coaster because obviously he's never ridden one and lastly I'd help him find a new job.  Haha
