Don't know if this is the right place, and way to post this, so I'll give it a shot anyway. It's an article about the new coaster that Gravity Group will be building at Quassy.

Gotta ask, Do you think that using a picture of Voyage was a good thing, considering that neighborhood that Quassy is located in?

Do you really think anyone reading the article would get the impression Quassy's coaster is anything like Voyage?

Don't you think the story is about Korey and TGG and features a picture of Korey in front of one of his existing coasters?

Yeah, I get that part of the story. Then why not show a CGI of Korey's actual design, that is intended for Quassy instead?

A a reporter for a newspaper, I can assume that maybe this was the best photo that was available to him. I run into that problem sometimes.

I got lost with him and Mike Graham (both then from CCI) in the queue for Ripsaw Falls at IOA once.

That seems to be a nice little coaster, just a bit bigger than a junior but perfect for Quassy. Just as is the case with Raven at HW, a coaster doesn't have to be big to be good.

I would like to see such a coaster appear at either Idlewild or Delgrossos.

^ I agree. I LOVE The Voyage, but I can only handle a couple rides in a row. I could ride Raven all day so it gets my vote for my favorite.


Riding once again after 18 years of being too fat to do so!

KWs Jack Rabbit is another coaster that supports this idea that smaller coasters can still be good. It's quite short but a lot of fun and very popular. I always come off of this coaster smiling.

It's just remarkable how thrilling an 88 year-old coaster can be.
