Yeah, the 'no glasses allowed' policy on "demon drop" type rides really sucks. Without them on I can't see well enough to spit on the people waiting in line down below. ;-) I tried explaining this to the ride operator and he seemed unsympathetic...I wonder why :-)

Six Flags, the only chain of parks that can manage to have stacking with a one train operation.
One time I did a test on Racer Millennium. I set a pennie on my knee right before the larger hill to the Island and it floated then landed back on my knee.....very interesting!

I made something called a "G-machine".
I use it for all rides with free-fall or airtime.
What I did was I took a bouncy ball, used a small screw-driver and made a hole directly through the center of it. Then I took a rubberband, and slide it through the center, tied it, then added more bands so it had length. Then I just tied the end like a yo-yo, and everytime I want to use it I just whip it out of my pocket, put the loop on my finger, and watch it float! I though pennies are too dangerous, so I made a safe invention!

Don't drop coins on rides... it's overrated. I agree what I do is extremely stupid and I only dropped that amount of coins once. I will not do this anymore in fear of hurting someone. Thanks for helping me to realize how insane my friend's idea was... I guess I shouldn't have jumped on the bandwagon though and posted about it.

And what's worst is the GP gets to see a man take an orange and release it on Superman at SFMM in a roller coaster show. You can make special device that shows you the works of gravity, but they still might not let you bring it on the ride. All it is thought, is a clear plastic tube with marbles in it and it has something on each end to keep the marbles in with a strap you wrap around you are so if you drop the tube it won?t go any where.

Just wanted to point this out, this is my first real post, and it was accually a bannana. I know that because i have this thing against Pual Rueben. And i agree, that he should not have done that, well no one should have done that, because well if he drops it, 400 feet, large object, person gets hit, OUCH!i know there is probably no walkway near it..but anyways. THe inventions that people mentioned are a great way to do it instead of lose objects that can come back at us, and make coaster enthusiasts look bad.
Honestly, I hate to sound like a jerk, but please, for the love of God, STOP.
I've been hit by flying objects on a few coasters lately (most recently Raging Bull and Magnum) and let me tell you, it ruins the entire ride.
Take a penny off the face a few times, and you really want to be back at the loading station. Not only that, but many rides come near ride queues or simple walkways. Drop anything, and it becomes a projectile with a serious opportunity to cause pain.

Corey, and whats nice is it wont fall since its attached. Its sweet since you can watch the ball, and if you dont catch it its still attached to the string. So I use it on Villain olot, and its awesome to see it just rise out of my hand ;)
I take about 10 pennies (5 in each hand) and let them go on each spike.
If I EVER get hit by a penny because of this stupid-ass behavior, I will sue you and your parents to kingdom come.

And whether it is dangerous or not, it is a cool thing to watch. But one should understand that there are consequences for one's actions. I notice on most freefalls now they check your hands to make sure that you do NOT have any coins in your hands. It's kinda hard to get into your pockets so they think that will stop most of the problem. Of course one could always keep a coin or two in their mouth...(okay so I *do* have a little creativity).
