Hello, just wanted to introduce myself to everyone. I am Vince. I love rollercaosters. I grew up as an rrc'er, but I haven't been around those parts in awhile.
favorite park: Knotts.
favorite woodie: Ghostrider
favorite drop ride: Drop Zone, PKI
Longest wait: 7 hours, Volcano, opening day
Favorite steelie: Millenium Force
Fav. Inverted: Aplengeist
favorite overall ride: Top Thrill Dragster...I can't call it a coaster though, it is simply an experience. When people pull into the station of, lets say, Raptor, they applaud loudly. When the train finally brakes on TTD the people are completely silent, occasionally making some whacked out noise that they sub-consciously conjured up - hands on their head, jaw open, eyes like anime.... so yeah, favorite ride.
Cool, anyway, hope to get to know you guys...oh, quick question (next thread)

Just a friendly piece of advice before someone comes with an attitude-
As per the Terms of Service you agreed upon when registering, introduction threads are frowned upon.
But welcome to CBuzz, I'd say go and read the ToS so that you don't encounter some of the greif people like to give, or wonder why a mod has locked a thread. It can be found under 'About Coasterbuzz' to your right.

Okay, sorry, I guess in america "welcome threads" are normally frowned upon...let me just drop my chin, slightly glance over at the stream of strangers, hoping one day maybe I will get the courage to say something, and once I find that stranger to say hello to, he holds up a sign that says "I don't like to meet new people." and we continue walking.
just kidding. sorry, I am a fool, and a fool should be bombarded with insult, so, please, everyone, bombard this fool with insults...
btw, a little fodder, I'm polish.

The first day I rode Volcano, they told me it was the first day it was open too (sometime mid season). I think I waited 5 hours or so for those 8 seat trains. That is the ride that turned me into a coaster nut. TTD is my top steel coaster too. Welcome, but like TS said, this type of thread is a TOS violation.

"so, please, everyone, bombard this fool with insults..."
It's just not the same when the intended victim asks for it. Kinda like the panhandlers who stand at stoplights with signs that read "Throw your change at me". I can't because it takes all the fun out of it.;)

Hey, he got it all out of his system first and
he promises another thread to further fill us in. What more can you ask for? My only complaint is that the "Hey, wassup..." thing is so five years ago, which is so two years ago (I think it's quite possibly the most annoying phrase anyone has ever come up with that gets adapted by way too many advertisers and writers who have no creativity).

So does this mean we can keep him? :)
I really like your attitude. It's fresh.
Welcome...And I have never met a guy from poland that I have not liked.
Is it "Chesht"? Is that how you say "Hi" in Poland?

And I thought Vince was an Italiano name. Then again, I have a Dutch name, and Dutch I be not.
Hey, I like Knott's too. Yah know, with that woodie of theirs, they could call themselves Knots.

Since I still hear it here in St. Louis I guess I know just how behind the times we are.
