Guinness World Records 2001 Book Mistake

Monday, April 15, 2002 4:10 PM
I just thought I would inform anyone who hasn't noticed this mistake in the Guinness World Records 2001 book. If you have the book look on page86 and it's the theme park and rides section. I was looking the other day at it and noticed Cedar Point was the park with the most rides. I read the little caption and it said a few rides are traditional wooden-track roller coasters such as Blue STACK and WOODCOCK Express, a steel-track coaster. I just wanted to share that they screwed up.

I'm sure the next book will be MUCH better. In fact, they are going to have an amazing pic of Dodonpa..... ;) :) !.......

it also says that the ultimate is the longest ride and millenium force is the tallest...and that is the 2001...didnt steel dragon 2000 come out in 2000 and it would beat both of those records...those are some other mistakes...

I think Guinness was published before SD2K was finished and messured

It is true that Guiness Publishes their books a year earlier than the year it is. If I'm not mistaken you can get Guiness Book 2003.

Cedar Point should just take some bulldozers and dig out some dirt below MF's lift hill then they can say that it is 320 ft. tall from the ground.

Well, Guinness comes up with all sorts of crazy catagories regarding records, so it is possible for a ride like the former racer Daidarasaurus in Osaka to be the longest-continuous-mobius-coaster-that-used-to-be-a-steel-racer.

You gotta send that to Jay Leno! He'll think that's pretty damn funny, just watch it on Monday nights and they have headlines and they give you the address to send headlines. He'll probably say that you can ride the Woodcock express, I don't even wanna know what that means!

...except that a "woodcock" is an actual bird. Quite famous for it's acrobatic mating dance. Go sit in an old field around dusk in the spring and you'll see what I mean.

Maybe it is a fitting name for a coaster, Woodstock can barely fly!

Well, you know what Woodstock would say about this whole thing:

Off the subject but there is a little article in this months Popular Mechanics on Dodonpa. It says they got the trains up to 120 while empty once. It also talks about its source of power. Pretty interesting but short. As for the Guinness Book of world records 2002 is all correct.

Yeah, they always mess up. I believe it was the 2000 edition that had a picture of Boomerang at Knott's, and it gave a description of Superman the Escape next to it.

I am pretty sure Guinness measures from the station to the top of the lift, not the ground
