I did enjoy the theming, however.

Thank you...:)

coasterqueenTRN's avatar Cool pics and TR, Robb!

I have heard VERY mixed reviews about Silver Bullet. Although nothing will ever be quite as *intense* as the old Batmans I look forward to SB at Solace!

^ Thanks! It's like I said....even if people think it's the "worst" B&M ever...that still probably puts it in the top 25% of all the coasters in the world, IMO.

I'm looking forward to SB when I'll be over there in may.

I like Batman as well, but somehow toward the end of Batman, there's too many positive Gs for too long in my opinion. There's that moment when you think "it cant get any worse than this - can it?" right before the last inversion - and then it gets MUCH WORSE - creating the sense of vertigo that's the key to coaster enjoyment for many people.

I guess everybody's taste is different - I enjoy coasters often for the flying sensation they deliver, and I imagine SB is right up my alley.

^ Don't worry about TR's aren't that interesting anyway!


No they aren't, but I forgive you for that. ;)

I can't say much about Knott's right now since I haven't been there in over 2 years, but everytime I've been there it hasn't been all that enjoyable. Same with SFMM, more so in fact. Frankly, I don't care much for either place but that's just my opinion. I'd rather spend my time at SCBB near me or DL down south than either Knott's or SFMM.

Actually, I'd rather spend more time at a manure-processing plant than at SFMM... ;)


If you jump off a cliff, you might as well learn to fly since you've got nothing to lose

I don't know. I'd rather be at any park right now instead of staring out my window at a foot and a half of snow. ;)
Me? I'm dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest. Honestly. It's the honest ones you want to watch out for, because you can never predict when they're going to do something incredibly... stupid.

^ See, and that's what's so great about different perspectives because *right now* I miss living on the east coast so much I'd give up a few months of year round crappy parks to live in an area that actually HAS seasons! =)

When I lived in Baltimore it just seemed like the perfect location.....30 parks within a days drive, not too harsh of winters, and cheap flights to Florida.

Now I'm stuck with SFMM and Knott's and I can't tell the different between fall, winter, and spring, except for the fact that more houses slide down hills in Jan & Feb. =) At least DLR is still fun.

I know some people love it here, and that's totally cool, but it's not for everyone....

Robb: if water falls from the sky, it is winter. If you can't see the mountains through the haze, it is summer. Otherwise, it is either spring or fall. Simple.

^ LOL! Nice.....I'll pass those words around the office so people are clear about what season we're in. =)
