I really thought that Kennywood's new bummer of a coaster would have been a lot more like Wicked. It's really disappointing that it was not.

(I haven't rode either coaster, for the record.)

Trying to wrap my mind around this. That's like me saying I really thought baked dog would taste a lot more like stewed shrew.

Well, I did view each ride on the internet (photos, videos, POV's stastics, ect.), and Wicked looks like a lot more fun than whatever Kennywood decided to call their new coaster.

Mmmmm...Baked dog and stewed shrew...

Stewed shrew is pretty tasty, but I've not yet had baked dog so I can't make the comparison. I've only seen POV's and read the Molden Tickets, but we all know the people who vote in that poll are a bunch of baked dog fanboys anyway.

(Roll eyes)

Let me rephrase so that you all can better comprehend.

Maybe someday I will be able to travel the world and ride every coaster that exists, so that I won't have to rely on photos and videos to help me form an opinion. Then when I describe my opinions on a roller coaster message board, they will all be valid in the eyes of other, less informed, coaster enthusiasts.

The S&S air launched coasters aren't dead yet. Check out this one being built at Happy Valley in China (the one with the crazy awesome themed flying coaster). The hill after the launch looks insane. Glad to see them trying something other than the typical top hat.

Hypersonic had the best launch I've ever felt. Now that they've gotten a little more serious with the compressed air launch, I'd definitely like to see more.

^ It's a lot different than Crystal Wings, I hope it doesn't ruin the appearance of the flyer too much - it's one of the best looking coasters ever!

Did they ever get the Nurburgring coaster open? Apparently the launch bust during the first few weeks?
