In love with a Coaster?

Thursday, July 11, 2002 8:28 PM

This may sound stupid but have you ever felt so close to a coaster that it feels like your in love with it?? I have a love for Magnum. It's like every other coaster is just a ride, but when i ride Magnum it's like an experience, like i've reached coaster nirvana. Has anyone ever felt this way about a coaster, (i hope so)?

I've been accused of loving Millennium Force... They told me to remove a bolt from the coaster and...

Well, it's a family site ;)

I am completely in love with Timbers. I just can't explain it...the more I ride, the more I love it. It just never ceases to amaze me :).

St Chick, I kinda figured that you would be in love with Timbers, judging from what i saw at TimbersFest. I remember them announcing it was your 600th ride. I was like wow!! i have only rode it like 40 times. It is an outstanding ride.

Gold Rusher for steel at Six Flags Magic Mountain (it's highly underated and the "toilet bowl" finale rocks)

and GhostRider for wood because of all the air-time you get riding that beast

I absolutely love The Beast at night. I basically grew up riding that ride, so it will always have a special place in my heart. Same goes for PKI in general. Through all the changes the park has been through, it still feels like home as soon as I step through the gates.

Ok, I get chills at the picture of nitro. You would think I saw the love of my life or something.

I also have a love for the Yankee Cannonball. It was built in the 1930's and it still is really good. Lots of airtime on almost every hill. It beat out my expectations completely! I like this little woodie more than Boulder Dash!

S:RoS ( SFNE ) is #1!

Hypersonic. Everytime I see Hypersonic launch and hear the whoosh, I get chills up my spine and I have to stop myself from sprinting to that side of the park when in line for Volcano.

Mantis - I know everyone hates it but Mantis is the only coaster I can ride time and again and not get bored - even after like my 4th ride of the day, I get a little bored with MF, but I have never gotten bored with Mantis. Maybe cause I feel its a little different each time - theres a little more or a little less hangtime in the first loop - the last part whips a little more ... or I'm just crazy, but I love Mantis - the roar of the tracks, even the air release of that stupid trim on the hill .... ahhhhh.

The old Steel Phantom used to be this way too - even before I was gutsy enough to ride it (I never rode until I was about 14) I'd sit there and just watch it go all day long. The clicking of that Arrow lift hill, the machine-gun sound of the rollback-preveter-thing before the first loop, the screams of people coming off the first hill ... memories.

Um - NO.

I enjoy riding coasters, but I would give them up for my wife, any member of my family, my friends, my faith, and any number of other things that I actually love.

Anyone who "loves" a coaster doesn't know what love is.

Does any of the "usual" posters on this board know that theres such a thing as sarcasm, humor and statements that aren't black and white?

Lighten UP a little!! Yes, given the choice between saving a friend from a burning building, giving blood to save a family member or riding Mantis, I'll ride Mantis ... (and if you fail to see the sarcasm there either, you need help)

I would have to also say the Beast since I have been riding it for so long. It feels like we are old friendes or something. Especially at night!!! Sorry you feel that way Den, but I do "love" coasters, I am a coaster enthusiast! I LOVE my family and my family loves coasters too.

Hey Mark W. - pretty easy to tell who's a teen-ager and who's not from this thread, isn't it?

I'll repeat myself - anyone who "loves" coasters has never experienced love.

Pittdesigner - *you* may be being sarcastic, but most of the posters in this thread are sincere, I'm pretty sure.
