Not sure about the legality or quality (not to say either way on both accounts). Do a search on here for Horse Creek or Horse Creek Productions and you should find some older topics discussing these DVD's.
$112 for 10 coaster DVD's? (cost plus shipping). I'm almost sure you could find the set for less. I'd need to see a list of the coasters included and a list of the features (multiple angles? interviews? commentary?) on the DVD's before I considered buying it.
Yes, I did end up buying them. I looked at past topics about these movies and there were people who were very satisfied with the first two volumes. They said they were looking forward to the 3rd volume to come out. I personally thought $10 for each dvd was pretty good. I will let you guys know what I think of them! :) *** Edited 3/7/2005 6:41:55 AM UTC by coasterfreak11***
Read the old thread on Horse Creek Productions....there's MANY opinions. My summary: I don't know anything about the videos, but when I found one of MY copyrighted pictures on a box of theirs, I was Pi**ed. And I wasn't the only one to find something like that.
I don't care much for the movies. In volume 5, for the on-ride videos of Millennium Force and CP, the footage was from the "Roller Coasters of Cedar Point" video that you can buy at the park. Also, the soundtracks were horrible and the on-ride video of Kraken (volume 1, I believe), was aimed backwards at the riders' faces instead of the track. They weren't very well-made at all.
I just got them in the mail today. All 10 of them! :) I have watched one of them already. I loved it. Even if you guys said they didn't take all the footage, it's still great. I love the music. I can't wait to watch the other 9 dvd's!! $10 for each DVD is not bad at all. I also got 5 park brochures.
What witch hunt? You think it's ok that the tape I have has MY copyrighted picture on the box? And why would I lie about such a thing? There's nothing for me to gain by doing so. If one thing is taken without permission what am I then to think about everything else? It wasn't just mine too. Two other "well known" coaster picture sites found the same thing on the same cover! One was from a "joyful" picture site and the other was from the owner of a sort of "data" site. Think they would like about it too? And that's just the ones that I recognized.
And when we all contaced the person responsible you wouldn't believe the response we got. If you really want to know, you can contact one of us in private.
If you think the intellectual property theft (which solid proof exists) of several folks is a witch hunt, then I encourage you to look up "witch hunt". *** Edited 3/13/2005 1:01:00 AM UTC by Peabody***
