I need some DRAGSTER information

Friday, January 31, 2003 10:37 AM
When will Dragster be opening? Will they have it ready for CP's opening day? I read somewhere on the net that it won't be ready. Anyone have info. on this?

I believe that this ride will provide excellent rollercoastering.

IIRC, it was one of the two S:UF's that was supposed to be *slightly* delayed....all things considered re: Dragster, I'd be surprised if it was delayed, but even more surprised if
the Xcelerator *issues* have ALL been completely ironed out....

I sincerley HOPE it runs flawlessly from opening day on....based solely on Xcel, I seriously doubt it...

What do you mean "excellent rollercoasting"? Yes, it is going to be a kick-ass ride!

Isn't Dragster supposed to use a different type of computer for launching, so it won't be the same as Xcel?

Actually, Xcelerator was the first to use the hydraulic launch (am I correct?), and Top Thrill Dragster is the second.

Moosh. The real Peabody, no. Perhaps that troll that was around yesterday. I have never posted on here with anything but this name.

Ah, OK. I just recall the "why throw you a crab?" post from yesterday and thought you might be having a little fun.

Nope. I may in fact be a goofball, but I would never stoop to trolling or posting from another name pretending to be someone else. Ask Rob. (Wait, is he a good character reference??? ;) )

Yesterday's loser bore a strong resemblence to that old Inedible Hilk troll. He has a scary facination with me. Always wondered if it was CPNUT since I busted him so many times.

Well, P'body...who wouldn't be fascinated with you? How you got that nude pic past the mods and onto your profile is beyond me, but woof!

OK...back to the topic at hand. Hasn't SOB, Deja Vu, X, Superman The Escape, Volcano, Hypersonic, and Xcelerator and countless others taught us all that we can't count on a new coaster to be ready when they park claims [or hopes] it to be?

Best bet: wait until it seems to be running reliably before travelling a great distance to ride it.

I missed that one! :)

Back on topic. I don't think you can count MF on that list. It was ready opening day, and had only one day the whole 1st season when it didn't open.

Peabody, I could have so much fun with one of your posts above, but I won't go there. ;)

Anyway, I'm about 98.9 percent sure Dragster will be running opening day. It's amazing how well new coasters run when the *media* is hanging around the park. ;)

Now it's the very next day I'd be worried about.

Peabody, what happened last night? I must've missed it. I was spending a lot of time catching up on the "What has happened to Coasterbuzz?" thread.

Don't bother asking Peabody anything. He will just end up calling you a troll. Maybe he should make more posts about coasters and less about calling every new member a troll.

Shut up, you troll ;)

Darn it Rob, you beat me to it. ;)

Crab master, you have never asked me anything, and you just signed up three hours ago. What in the world are you talking about? I kindly invite you to show me where I called someone new a troll. Please do show me......
