This is very cool, but I really do wish they'd go to some parks I've never seen onscreen before. SFoG, SFStl, Lake Compounce, Silverwood, SFFT....so many I'd like to see video of.

Ah, what do I care, I don't even have cable....

Yeah, I'm sick of seeing Magic Mountain and Cedar Point on TV. Give us something different. I'm all for Silverwood. I'm dying to see footage of Timber Terror and Tremors in action.

Does this mean that the show will be airing every wednesday night? That's really exciting. And to think that they could have 3 new coasters featured every week. Is this what is going on?

Unfortunately, no... "The Tech of:..." is the show and they talk about something different each week - roller coasters, aircraft carriers, movies, etc...

One of the reasons you see SFMM on TV so much is that it is so close to the media mecca, LA. Its much cheaper to just drive up the road and film instead of flying across the country.

Mamoosh, exactly. It just shows how cheap the producers are. They say, "Hey let's go to SFMM 'cause it's close, and CP because it's the only out-of-state park I've heard of!"

I guess I'll be missing this one. My cheap cable company doesn't have the TechTV Chanel.

Of course they're gonna talk about the "state-of-the-art" S:TE. It launches you from 0-100 mph in 7 seconds and you go soaring up a 415 ft. tower! Yep. That was awesome a few years ago. Now S:TE is boring. I take it they don't know about air-launched rides yet. How's 0-107 in 1.8 seconds feel, TechTV? Huh?!

My website's hits just jumped 100 again. Hmm... I guess it has to do with thier out of date link to a site that links to a site that links to my site. :)
