Raging Wolf Bob's New Train

Thursday, June 23, 2005 11:00 PM
as posted on zerognetwork:

Wolf bob's finally got it's new train. It is black and red and has the Raging Wolf Bob's symbol and name on the front. I guess GL tried putting the logo on the red and silver train, but the logo was too big. I want to be the 1st person/employee to test ride Wolf Bob's in the black car. See if the train makes a difference.

Looks like it will be the first coaster you have ever been on.

Or she's a not a premium member and doesn't have access to her track record.

That or she doesn't want to bother setting up a track record. Not everyone cares.

^or they have been on so many that they can't remember them all (or care to remember them all - we forget some on purpose once in awhile *couch* Psyclone and SOB *cough*)

Wow, those look nice, They've done so much with this park. I like the logo on the train! 98.1 WKDD of Akron/Canton was broadcasting Live from WildWater Kingom today...and just talking of the changes. Matt Patrick also apologized to Geauga Lake for Jaimie (a producer or something) for having to see her in her bathing suit. I'm hoping to see the park soon, just not sure when I'm making the trip yet.

Assuming the re-tracking left to be done (over the next offseason) is in the middle of the ride, I think GL could have a nice trio of woodies...Bobs' beginning and ending sequences were running really nice, much better than I remembered.

Villain was tearing thru the track (in a good way), and Dipper was a beautiful ride.

That train looks really good. Im glad they decided to paint it.

I thought you had to be a member of Coasterbuzz Club to add coasters to your track record page now.

i have a feeling a lot of people do not understand that the Villian of 2000 is not the Villian we know today. This coaster is almost as bad as SOB, no matter where you sit the ride is anything but enjoyable. It is pretty sad, this ride use to be the best coaster in the park.. *** Edited 6/24/2005 12:14:22 PM UTC by jar***

Villian has gotten a little bouncy but hardly enough to make it
unrideable. It is still one of the
best coasters in the state (hard to choose between Villian, Big Dipper,
and the SBNO Screechin' Eagle).

Just curious, what does Raging Wolf Bob mean? I always thought that the name makes no sense.

It has something to do with the Chicago Riverview Bobs.

That looks really nice! I also like the paint job on the actual coaster, very clean-cut and eye-appealing.

Cedar Fair has done an awesome job with the park! It may be a park I need to visit one of the days.

Wow people are saying nice things about Gerstlauers?!?! What's this board coming to ;)

*prepares for a flood of anti-Gerstlauer posts*

No it's not! Screechin' Eagle wins hands down, SBNO or not.

The *Bobs* name came fron the famous Riverview Park (Chicago, IL) Bobs coaster designed by Harry Traver. The coaster was leveled soon after the park closed in 1967, as was much of the park and the several other woodies there in.

When Funtime wanted to add a new wooden coaster to celebrate Geauga Lake's 100th anniversary in 1988, they looked back at the past and decided to recreate this classic wooden roller coaster. They hired Curtis Summers to look over the orignal plans that the park had purchased from a Riverview historian. Unfortunately, Curt *airtime is a bad thing* Summers had his own ideas as to the design and rebuild of the ride. Well...that and those horrible PTC *trailer* cars didn't help the situation any either.

I rode the Wolf Kabobs yesterday and saw the new/old train sitting on the storage track. The logo looks nice, and Cedar Fair has put many nice touches back into the park this year (like also adding logos and such to the Dipper trains). But the Dipper was running like crap yesterday. Worst ride in a couple of years for me on the ride.

FYI, in true Cedar Point fashion, the ride operators are now boasting the Dipper as *Ohio's oldest roller coaster" in the platform announcements. That's better than the 'ole *Welcome back riders, how was your ride?* spiel which I'm also hearing there now [sick].

Okay my track record goes a little like this

1st coaster-Big Dipper I was 6. Double Loop.

Corkscrew-I was 8. My dad decided to tell me to look at Lake Erie and so I did then we went down the lift hill. I said I would never ride a coaster again...

This year...we had to test ride Villan, but I was still afraid of heights. When we had to test RWB I decided to go on.

RWB my "first" coaster in almost 10 years.

This year I have rode Dominator(I have an on-ride photo), Villan, Thunderhawk, Headspin, Steel Venom, X-Flight, RWB, Doble Loop, Big Dipper, Millenium Force(I have a on-ride photo), Iron Dragon, Corkscrew, Mantis, Raptor, Disaster Transport, Blue Streak.

You mean the speil that nobody responds to? I'm sorry to hear Dipper is running like crap. It was in splendid form last weekend.

Alright, Screechin' Eagle may win. It's just hard for me to remember way back to 2002 :)
