Well I have to wait about two more hours! Oh get this, i know it's off subject but it's pretty funny and i wan'ted to share it. Yesterday my sister who is a senior and all the guys at my school who have seen her have told me that she is hot, was in class and was asked- how many independent nations are ther?- the right answer is 191, Amy(my sis) guessed 7! I know! Just thought i'd share a funny story.

I loved the show! Delerium, Thrill shot! Swat!! wow! That was an amazing show! If only I could have taped it : (

They also had Xcelerator, TTD and they even showed an animated video type thing of the new rocket coaster at Hershey!

I only got to see the last 10 min. I flipped the channel from the VMAs and saw Dragster. I got mad but luckily its on at 11:00 (central) I saw a couple other shots of rides at the end. Of course, why would ever consider going to Great America for Superman. Always SFGAdv.

I know, right? It always seems like SFGAm is a park that will never make it to the the T.V. screen. A while back when Deja Vu appeared on T.V. they just had to show it from SFMM. Even SFMM's Batman. Then there's SFGAd's Superman. Oh yes they have also showed Marine World's V2. I w ould really like to see SFGAm on T.V. one day. I mean you could always show Raging Bull or Viper. But then again whats the point if they only decide to show SFWoA, SFOG, SFGAdv, and SFMM. Yes, I must admit that i do wish my homepark would be on T.V. I'm jealous.

Aww, I didn't make it on screen for any of the Swat footage, but a lot of people I know did.

Great show - I love that they focused on the inner-workings of most of the rides.

Non-footage highlight of the show: discussing the structural safety of the swaying towers on SFMM's Thrillshot. (cough)VertiGo(cough)

It sure beats that abomination of a show "Thrill Rides put To the Test" that was on at the beginning of the show.

I really did enjoy Extreme Rides 2003 though. It was nice S:UF in action. Seeing Xcelerator and TTD was really neat as well. Now if they would just show S:ROS at SFNE on a future show.

I enjoyed the show, but had this overwhelming urge to hop into the car and head to PKI for another ride on Delirium.

The show was great! I love the inner-workings segment as well. My home park Astroworld look great! They showed a lot of footage from the park.

Anywho, it was difficult for me to watch anything last night... talkin to my ex (who was on Extreme Rides 02, Batwing)... Extreme Rides 03... Browns vs. Falcons... VMAs... i can only do so much at once...
