I dislike traveling backwards on a roller coaster.
I'm not a fan of inversions.
I take great pride in not being a credit whore.
I like being a coaster enthusiast who has never ridden a boomerang. I also like being a member of the human race who has never sent a text message or IM.
I would have paid to see you do that on Sunday.
It's a great idea as long as we remembered to plug them in to be charged each night after we transfered off :P
I'd almost perfer an electronic Talon voice than that garbage!
I also think that the Volcano TBC has them now, or did have them... This was my first time visiting KD and it looked like they had cameras watching you ride, but after we finished riding we didn't see anywhere to buy them.
Playland in Vancouver, BC, had a video system set up for Coaster. This was back in 1994.
I believe it cost $35 to have a video of you and your partner taped.
I remember watching the videos on a screen that was located near the entrance. You would see each rider from the top of the lift hill to the end of the ride.
It was pretty funny watching how many different reactions came from each rider. And many of these folks were not seasoned coaster enthusiats. Some were giddy others were clentched in the face and white knuckling it.
Needless to say it was very entertaining to watch.
I'm not sure how long Playland offered this service. When I revisited the park in 1999 for a regional ACE event, they had a photo booth set up and the screen was gone to view the videos. It must have been a faze in which patrons quickly lost interest in. But what a great Coaster to have yourself filmed on.
