Forgive me if this was posted prior, I could not see a recent topic on it anywhere...so......
Screamscape now has an article online revealing the true issues with Hypersonic at PKD. I don't usually reference Screamscape but this seems to be on the up and up.
It is interesting to note that S&S is no longer involved. That would leave me to predict that we will not see another Stan Checketts (sp??) ride at a Paramount Property for a long time.
Check it out at...
You may have to scroll down to get to it.

Thanks Shaggy. Sounds familiar, a coaster company being formed by former employees of an existing company...
But I think it would be a serious mistake on Paramount's part to completely end their relationship with S&S. IMO, their innovation, past and present, is something NOT to be ignored....also, noting that in the linked photo, the guy seems very happy with his ride, while the young lady next to him seems "less than thrilled"...LOL.
Any resemblance between this post and humor is purely coincidental. No robots were harmed in the filming of this episode...The sarcasm filter default has been left ON for your enjoyment.
It looks like the cars are 6 seaters now. If that's the case, capacity is going to be even worse than last year.

I humbly apologize if I missed a whole topic on that subject.
Nothing... NOTHING... can prepare you for... the Fourth Dimension!
I posted a topic about this new from Screamscape this morning and someone deleted it. Why can Shaggy post a topic about this but mine was deleted 5 fours before?
I also had a topic about why Twisted Sisters name was changed and that there are also lawsuits against Lake Compounce for using the name. This topic was also deleted.
Only part that was from the site was what I qouted, which told at the beginning where it was from. Plus, I submitted the news about Twisted Sisters because it had threatened lawsuits against my home park. Those were in terms really my words posted.
Do the moderators here even check to see who it may belong to or correct it? I'm a mod at two coaster sites and haven't seen strictness like this before. It was also revised since I added and changed many parts that they forgot. This happened before when they deleted a thread about the Comet frm Coasternet. Didn't even occr to you guys that I'm a staff member on Coasternet and that I was a co-writer of the article.
Well, you aren't a mod at a site that's as well visited by media and industry folks then, because if I miss something I get e-mail asking me to remove stuff. That won't change.
Not only that, but it's a waste of bandwidth to quote other articles anyway when you can just as easily link to them. Don't flatter yourself by thinking I've got something personal with anybody.

I'll be @PKD May 11-12, so maybe I'll be seeing something. Although, I'm sad we have to wait to ride H:XLC again.
That Interactive Rides site has some neat things on it. From the sound of what they can do to other S&S products, they may increase capacity instaed of cutting it, they have lots of retrofits for rides like Parachutes that look amazing.....
anyways, I'd LOVE to see this 'interactive seating' applied to an existing coaster.......
Texas Coasters... wow I'm lucky... IM me if you feel like talking about coasters.
