Most anticipated ride for 2013

Tuesday, April 9, 2013 3:40 PM

^^ um, Lost, the greatest show ever? Have you forgotten basically the whole sophomore season and that ridiculous, pulled-out-of-their-ass ending? I went from completely rabid for that show to wanting to throw my remote through the screen of my TV.

The greatest show ever on tv was Six Feet Under. No question.

Speaking of questions, I don't think I've responded to the original one. A new ride for me this year will be Gatekeeper and I plan to attend media day. While I look forward to that awesome ride, my most anticipated has to be Outlaw Run. My friend Jeff who lives in Missouri just got back from SDC and he can't stop talking about that ride.

I know rumor, unfounded or not, leans toward KI getting a B&M of some sort. I hold on to the hope that they took a chance on a design from Rocky Mountain, and I don't care if it's a topper track or an iron horse I-beam. Just so these up and comers have a crack at that huge, fantastic area and that beautiful terrain. Please. I can't think of anything better for that spot.

RCMAC, Rocky Mountain Construction doing a coaster like that for KI would be wonderful! Great idea.

I just want to ride something I haven't ridden this year. At least one good park trip with at least two good coasters. Blackbeard just doesn't count as "anticipated", though I haven't ridden it before. I'm thrilled to see all the new rides going up though, including OR, IR, and GK.

2-fold response... Semi-on topic... I think that if KI was going to get a Rocky Mountain style coaster, they would have never torn down SOB. Shirley they could have made that layout work with a few modifications and it would be a lot cheaper than starting from scratch. I was hoping Cedar Fair would jump on this train already. There are a lot of old woodies that could benefit. SOB, Mean Streak being the first that leap to mind as being in the "tear it down or rebuild it" category. Unfortunately, I don't think CP will do anything that major so shortly after the installation of Gatekeeper.

2nd... I loved the second season of Lost and I loved the ending. (For the record, I was fanatical over that show, like no other show before or since) I am of the belief that many, but not all, people who did not like the ending didn't quite get it. The island was real, they were not in purgatory. Even though the "flash-sidewayses" might lead you to think that way.

I believe there was a lot of talk on here about how the structure itself on SOB was not built correctly basically from the bottom up. The weight distribution was screwy and the ride would have to be rebuilt almost entirely. However, it would be awesome to see Cedar Fair invest in RMC re-dos.

Tommy, Are you sure we are not the same person?

The last season of LOST was not absolutely perfect, but I was extremely satisfied with it. I am with Tommy in that those who didn't like it might not have fully understood it. The Flash Sideways was hard to describe, but I will try.

SPOILERS Ahead! For those who might want to watch the entire show on Netflix, just skip to the next post.

When someone who had been on the island dies, whenever that may be, they ended up on the airplane at the moment that the plane was to crash. But the flash sideway world was like a dream, and in those stories, the plane did not crash and they did not make it to the island. Some of them even had entirely different lives in the past. The flash sideways stuff wasn't really happening in their reality, rather it was a halfway point and a meeting place in which they could all cross over to the other side together, much like purgatory, and it all began just before the event that made them all friends; the crash. Before they all crossed over together, they had to remember their real life on and off the island, and realize how important the other people were to them in their journey through that life. They all had to understand that the life that they are living in the flash sideways world is just a dream that they all share together.

That probably didn't make any sense at all, but that's the beauty of LOST. It doesn't have to make sense in order to understand it.

I will admit that I was a little frustrated in the last season until I realized just what was going on. They frustrated viewers on purpose, with the promise that it would all come together in the end, and in my opinion, it did just that.

I haven't got a taste of sports yet. (Except sprinting.) Sports is second to roller coasters in the case of entertainment.

Now there's a show that jumped the shark. Season 4 was the pinnacle. I'm planning to watch this season only because it's the last.

No show can ever jump the shark as... umm, jumpily as Dexter did in season 6. In fact, we should change "jumped the shark" to "Dexter season sixed". That was just awful writing, to the point that it was insulting to watch.

Also, I'm happy Breaking Bad is ending, as I expect one more season would all but guarantee a water skiing Fonz to close in on that great white.

Nah. While I feel BrBa is ending at the perfect time (in terms of story arc), I have complete and unconditional confidence in Vince Gilligan (and Bryan Cranston).

Maybe, maybe not. It did have the best series finale of all time, in my opinion.

LOST was totally overrated. I did watch to the bitter, the-writers-are-trying-too-hard-to-make-things-mysterious end, mostly because I was invested in the characters. LOST will, to me, serve as perhaps the greatest example of the value of restraint. Had they kept that show to 1 or 2 seasons, it could have been incredible. Instead, they got greedy, and the quality of the story suffered immensely as a result. Again, all in my opinion.

Um...the Phillies need to pull it together? Lee should always pitch since Hamels is sucking and Halliday is off kilter lately.

Better? ;)

Was down OCNJ Sunday.. on Castaway Cove's sign they said they were getting 7 new rides, 5 of them new to the US. Curious to see what the other 6 are .

The only one they had set up was similar to this thing
