Awww, I had to take a jab. Just got my second shot at X-Flight last week and with an entirely different group of friends than before. Same reaction as the group last year - "That was cool and all, but if I never did it again I wouldn't feel like I was missing anything"

I have to say I agree with that reaction.

Uh, it's kind of hard to bang your head, when there is nothing to bang your head on.

I'd say Rik Smits would be a good name, but he never had hops....;). He was the "Dutch boy in the paint"....

How about Rembrandt's Revenge?.........

All of the people who are indicating that a B&M is better, and the reasons the park opted for a Vekoma is money, have you ridden a B&M flying coaster. While the quality may be better, I just rode Superman and didn't find it awe inspiring. Add to that fact that they entered the fray two years after Vekoma, and you have to give Vekoma some credit for getting to the market with the product.

Damn, just because it's Vekoma doens't mean it's rough... Take a ride on Hangman at WA, any GIB, or The Sea Serpant over at Morey's Piers. All smooth as glass.

That said, I think Flight of Fear would be a good name for a flyer ;).

bill, DUCKING the incoming volley....

I prefer the overall RIDE on the Vekomas than on S:UF.....but if I could put that pretzel loop (and close clearances) on BatWing, that'd be my ideal flyer.....

Okay yippie Vekoma was first. But people have to realize that when another company (esp. B&M) take on a coaster type, they are going to improve on the design, no big deal.

If I was going to name Vekoma Flying Dutchman, it would be something like, "Buy Me"

No but seriously, in Roller Coaster Tycoon I named mine, "Superman: Metro Flight." I'm pretty sure Superman lived in Metropolis, correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks guys!

RagingBullGuy, that's so cool, I was thinking of calling it Flight of Fear too before you posted it!

Anywho, I was just wondering, how many of you guys design your own parks and doodle designs like I do? It's a pretty weird hobby, but I love it.
