A little off topic. But, I never understood the phrase "head over heals". I think for most people their head is always over thier heals except when they are upside down.
off topic, but spot on! I've always wondered the same. This one, too: when two planes almost collide, why do they call it a "near-miss"? IT's a near-HIT!
btw Jason, it wasn't Lost Coaster weekend this year, it was the Legend of the Shafer Shipwreck.
next year, I hear it's a Pink Floyd theme: "When the Tig'rrs Broke Free"
"I can promise you this, the coming summer at Indiana Beach will be everything you remember it being … but there’ll be something special that you’ll have never seen before … anywhere!"
*Note: Zipfile download, clip so short it isn't even necessary.
Translation: You'll be able to enjoy all your favorite attractions [except Chaos] at IB next summer.
…but there’ll be something special that you’ll have never seen before … anywhere!"
Translation: what we're adding next year can't be found anywhere else.
How is that at all confusing?
Just a reminder - woohooboy posted this on Page 1, and I've yet to see *anything* that would disqualify this "never-before-seen" ride.
It's on the Internet, and I've just seen it. LoL I think that's kind of stupid getting a ride that hasn't been at another park, or carnival before. Look at some of these big and gigantic roller coasters that they spent tons of money like Kingda Ka, and they turn out to be broke too much. Kinzel said that Top Thrill Dragster was a flop. The basic point is that I don't think it's too smart anymore to buy the first of any ride because you never know how the ride is.
There is a small roller coaster that was at the Ohio State Fair. It was called the G-Force. It would drop, and then the ride would go back and forth. Guess what? That carnival company is selling that ride. That was the first of that type ride. It's made by ARM, and it was just introduced this year. The capacity is bad, and it breaks down enough.
Look at X, and how people complain about that one being broke down, or only having one train because the other one is out of commision. I don't think that Indiana Beach is making a smart move by buying something that isn't proven that it works.
I've heard that one of the Moser Rides at a carnival company barely worked, and NAME (North American Midway Entertainment) sued Moser because it wasn't working right, and it was always broke down. I think it was the Speed Flip. I'm not 100% sure, but I think it was Moser, and that ride. That looks intense as this ride is. I go on there Spring Tower though, and that works fine.
My point is, you can reinvent the wheel, just don't mess with the engine.
500 foot coaster! ha Nah, but I'm excited for the announcement, whenever that will be.
"I’ll give THIRTEEN to one odds that it’ll definitely be fun!
Get out your pen and paper, call Opie & Forest Gump, and see what you can put together."
Opie & Forest Gump = Ron Howard & Tom Hanks
Thirteen = Ron Howard directed & Tom Hanks was in Apollo 13
My theory is the new ride will have something to do with a rocket or space. There are a few different space themed flat rides out there already. Like this. *** Edited 11/1/2007 9:41:51 PM UTC by Jason Hammond***
Is there a Corn Hole game at Indiana Beach yet?

"For those of you still having fun with yesterday’s clue/game, here’s something that might make it easier: Mr. Mojo Risin’ says use these blanks to figure things out (I tried putting in dashes and spaces 3 times and it won't let me put in double spaces. So, the following numbers indicate how many characters are in each word.) 2 4 1 2 1 3 7!"
I got nothin. I looked at the song lyrics for L.A.Woman and didn't see anything that fit, but according to Wiki, Mr. Mojo Risin' is an alias for Jim Morrison as well. So, it could potentialy be in any of their songs. Or, it might be something completely different.
