Sorry for such a noisy post.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Roller Coaster Tycoon has ruined an entire generation of minds. Chris Sawyer should have added some code to the game that showed what happens when you spend more money on unreliable rides than you do on maintaining the park, hiring qualified staff, training the staff, etc.
There's also a huge difference in price between taking down Chiller, and taking down Ka, which required specialized cranes and highly specific wind conditions to work in. *** Edited 11/10/2007 7:19:18 PM UTC by Intamin Fan***
Kingda Ka and TTD are both very maintenance intensive rides, but the overall view of the rides have been very positive. I can't talk to much for Kingda Ka since I never been there to ride it, but TTD has ran for four seasons and it still captures the most attention by far from the guest.
Besides, for me, KK was running virtually all trains with very little down time the 6 days I went to GAdv this year...TTD on the other? ehhhhh......
Would rather see rolling thunder racing, or a nice knevil type woodie.
I rode TTD five times this summer and KK zippo. KK was down the entire day we were at the park.
I have had that same luck with KK. I have visited at least once every season since it opened, and always managed to get multiple rides. Of course I had to pay for the Flash pass to get multiple rides. My last visit early in the Spring it seemed to be running flawless all day.
Some people are lucky and some people aren't when it comes to being able to ride the new attractions. I have been lucky. ;)

I for one think that we wont see TTD or Ka in 15 years.
