Looks like a snore in the video! I am looking forward to hearing more about the ride once more people ride it.

A snore? How so? You honestly can't expect to watch people rocket through loops at 60 MPH, can you?

I can't stop looking at the JoJo. I always pictured a 20-foot drop into the roll--but nope. Out of the station into an inversion. Nice.

Clone it up and send it my way. Pretty please?

I guess I should have added a smiley. :) Videos almost always make coasters look boring.

I'm really kicking myself for not going out there. I wasn't doing anything anyway, and with those empty trains, wow, would've had no problem getting a lot of rides.

Gonch sitting in corner of darkened room in fetal position rocking and muttering to himself:

17 days until ERT...
17 days until ERT...
17 days until ERT...

Looks like a lot of fun. I thought I would get the chance to ride it this year (along with Storm Runner and Kingda Ka) but because of a packed schedule, I had to choose between Sheikra and the East Coast trip. I don't know if I'd pass Sheikra up for anything at the moment. :)

Just remember... CoasterBuzzCon registration deadline is May 11. That's not negotiable because I'll be going on a trip the next day. No registration by then, no tickets! :)

Prepare to be Jo-Joed? Now that's just silly.

Since When Did dorney have a ride called Screamin Swing? Heres the link:


or else the picture was put in the wrong file!

It's new and replaces the Skyscraper, which now stands @ VF.

Completely forgot to mention the Screamin' Swing. It's a pretty cool ride, but it was a little too short. It only gave two full sized swings before winding down. Two more would have been nice, but Skyscraper only spun 4 times in each direction.

Sounds like Dorney is running their Swing the same as Knotts.

With the trains going through the circuit, the "enhanced" cobra roll is even more evident. B&M sure does pride themselves on having the most comfortable coasters on the market, even if it is at the expense of intensity. Can onyone who has ridden Hydra compare this new cobra roll to the older ones?

It look likes it going in slow motion through all of the elements? The jojo roll does look like some fun. I am going to wait until I ride it to give my opinion.

I should go this weekend, but I hate waiting in long lines to get my pass processed. I should have renewed it with the same picture from last year.
