You can really hear the music out there, was that from the train or from somewhere else?

Was just discussing this with my lady and we both agree this would be a nice trip to take. Myrtle Beach with a high end theme park, they may have something good here...

Is the music program for this ride going to stay the same always or are they planning to rotate songs?

airtime for everyone

Pretty sure its going to be the same.

I like how most of these test videos end at the midcourse...I think a lot of people will be surprised by that last corkscrew!
I can't wait to see how quickly the Ride Ops start to loathe that song...
If it's a Led Zep song, I'm sure most people are already tired of it. I love classic rock but I think Zep is one of the most overplayed and overrated bands ever.
^ Preserving wooden coasters is overrated. ;)

Over played, sure. Over rated?

Still not convinced about this ride. Hopefully the ride experience will change my mind. My money is on Maximum RPM!
^Preserving wood coasters overrated!? Well, If I loved SFGAd, I could see your POV.

Many of the new steel coasters are just plain no fun. Some you have to fight to not get hurt b/c of stupid shoulder harnesses. A day in a good park (Holidayworld, Hershey, Indiana Beach, Kennywood) with it's woodies is like more fun then I could ever have at CP or MM or the like.

I think alot of people don't like woodies, are don't like them much, due to Six Flags mainly. Also, look at things like SOB and Mean Streak. People get off those things with an attitude and think "what the heck!?"

^Fair enough, but I would hardly consider MF, Raptor, Dragster, WT, Maxair, Skyhawk, and Maverick (IMO) to be painful rides.

Not to mention most new Beemers, especially flyers and hypers, are glass smooth.

I love WIcked Twister

Top 5, in no particular order: 1. MF 2. Maverick, 3. Kraken 3. El Toro, 4. TTD 5. Superman Krypton Coaster Top overrated coasters: 1. Incredible Hulk (Boooooring!) 2. Nitro 3. Expedition G-force 4. Goliath(SFMM) 5. Any Dive Coaster
I was just poking fun at Rob... I winked.

Wood > Steel

Ah well, u never know what people mean on these things. Sometimes I'll read part of what someone said and get all hot under the collar. Something I def need to work on!

But it's good we're so passionate about coasters, huh? I mean, we could ALL be Treckies ;)

As far as the Zep coaster, looks nice (albeit quite 'boring' I mean, why can we never have 2 or 3 hearline spirals for once???) Looks great with that song playing. Agreed, it would be nice to get a huge amount of songs; Zep has over 100 great songs, come on. It doesn't have to all be top 10 (ironically, I don't think Zep ever had a top 40 hit, I don't think they had 'singles' proper, as it were).

Would be nice to vote or some type of system for people to vote for a song. It would usually be one of 5 songs then... so maybe not.. *** Edited 12/18/2007 1:37:29 AM UTC by J7G3***

It was not played from the ride itself but rather from off-ride, near where members of the press had assembled for the ceremony.

This is the only park you´d have to pay ME to enter.

Must be a Barry Manilow fan! LOL@ anyone that says Led Zeplin is overrated.
