Rotor rides still in operation?

Dutchman asked if you can manually raise the floor. The answer is yes, you can.

Sandals can get 'pinched', but no one can get the feet cut off. There is tolerance between the floor and the drum, but not enough to lose a body part.

You can also lower the floor to 'exit door' level. Its not rocket science on how they work.


Thank you Agent J, that's what I thought. When I was still dealing with Chance they talked about going to a PLC for all the functions on it. As has been pointed out the demand for them dried up and it's no longer in their catalog.

LostKause's avatar WOW! Those Rotor pics look awesome, RCMAC! I want to ride!

Wasn't Time Shaft at KD themed as well? I wish I would have got there before it was removed. I remember the commercial when I was a kid. They depicted the ride as terrifying...lol.

Despite what you claim, what happens on this board obviously validates you on some level or you wouldn't bother calling me out as harshly as you did...


YES! ROCK ON Brother! It's time someone said it.

...Says the guy who links to his little 'band' in his signature, hoping someone notices him...while he fritters away on his PC at midnight or so. :) Honestly. It's just all too easy.

And you know, I called Cropsey out on his story. That's it. If I chose to really to pick on or persecute him, I could have smacked him around with every 'deperate' attempt to be...how did he mangle the word obnoxious? I don't recall. But ya know, that's just plain mean.

Viewing his sentence structure, spelling, punctuation (or lack thereof), I already know I'm talking to someone with a low average to borderline Verbal IQ. I know he's been through at least a couple years of special ed if he grew up anywhere near a major metropolitan area. Winding up and swinging on him every time he makes the tiniest literary stumble would be like kicking a crutch from under one of Jerry's kids. It's not funny. It's just heartless and awful.

Unfortunately, far too many of your low-average to borderline VIQ audience will never recognize that when they see it. There's so many shadings and nuances and subtleties in written language they'll never figure out cuz they have a hard enough time decoding the plain and obvious and...come to think of it, I may have described at least two people at once here.

Some folks deserve a Special Olympics hug when they post cuz after all, look what they're working with! Here's yours, Dexter. Now run along.

Now here's the fun part. Playa If you look over your posting history, with the exception of the occasional "I like me some (insert ride here)", your posts fall into three common themes. There's the internet bully thing, the kissing up to those you choose to admire here, then the most amusing is the endless "I have a real life" or "the only reason I'm posting here is becuase of some 'downtime' at work" or some other reason. You also like to point out the times when others post, assuming that they should be on the same schedule as you but that's usually part of your bully M.O.

Now all this talk of your "having a life" or whatever gets discredited when have dropped almost 3500 posts over the years and make a special effort to attack people in your spare time. Yet constantly reminding people that "you have a life" and can barely be bothered to waste your time here. If you were so content in your own life, then why feel the need to lash out at others online? Again, there must be some level of validation in all of this or you wouldn't bother.

Now after all those "I have real life" posts Alanis might call that ironic, but really it's just pathetic. So anything else you in denial about champ?

See what happens when I try to be nice? Keep the debate to the topic and all? Ya know...sometimes you just gotta give the people what they want. *shrug*

Stalkalicious! And more than a little bit creepy.
But never mind all that for now. There's more.


Now all this talk of your "having a life" or whatever gets discredited when have dropped almost 3500 posts over the years and make a special effort to attack people in your spare time.

That's seven years, to be exact. Gee, who knows? I might happen to like it here. A couple, three or four might even like me too. Imagine that.

'Special effort?' Uhhhhhhhhhhhh...not really. Honest truth, you're pretty much your own walking punch line. You just keep painting the 'KURK MEE' signs bigger and bigger. I don't have to make fun of you. I only have to explain why you're funny. Speaking of which...


There's the internet bully thing, the kissing up to those you choose to admire here

Kissing up? Really? Me? To who? When? Where? Show us.

I've got almost 3500 I-don't-really-have-a-life-and-am-in-such-deep-denial posts, right? So there's plenty of opportunity. You can dig back through each and every one of them. You've already demonstrated that you know how, so...go on. Right here. Right now. Sift through my countless 'I have a life' posts and show us where I kiss up to anyone here.

Put up. Or shut up.

LostKause's avatar GASP! You mean I shouldn't be up past midnight? Really? So we live on different schedules. I'm not offended.

GASP again! You're telling me that I shouldn't be marketing and promoting my very popular, and very successful rock band any way I can? You must not know much about being a musician, Playa. Half the reason my band is so huge right now is because I promote it any way I can. You are wrong about Lost Kause being a "little band". We are getting bigger than we are comfortable with. Once again, I am not offended. How could I be? You really don't know what you are talking about.

And the special ed thing is almost the stupidest thing you have ever said here. You may find it shocking that it doesn't offend me at all. You are once again wrong, so don't act like we know each other.

And on top of all of that, you claim that people who post on Coasterbuzz do not have a life except for you because you are visiting the site in your spare time. Strange. I have a life and post here in my free time too (which happens to be after midnight on some occasions). Bet you that you'd never guess that I am once again not offended.

I AM offended that you would try your best to make yourself look like you are better than me, and everyone else you're not bud's with here. You are not better than me. I know how to treat people with respect. That makes me, and a lot of other people here, better than you.

But the question everyone should ask about Playa is, "Why is that guy always such a jerk?" Seriously, did you have a challenging childhood or something? Was Mommy mean to you? Did Daddy defile you? What reason do you have to try and prove to everyone that you are clever and that you have a life?

And YOU are the one who makes it easy. Your posts are always clever attempt to hurt others. You are a bully and have some real emotional issues. I really don't think that you would ever say some of the things that you say to people here "in real life". It's pretty easy to hide behind a profile. That makes you a coward. You probably wouldn't survive the real world treating people the way you do here.

Jeff should make a site totally devoted to your ego. It could be called PlayaBuzz! People could pay $20 buck a month to argue about your God complex.

LostKause's avatar Another thing. You never reply. You respond, as if everyone is interested in your defects. Why don't you direct your replies to the person you are talking about.

How many threads do Playa git clozed, Dog?

So anyway, rotors.

Rotors are shiny, rotors are tall,
Rotors make you stick halfway up the wall.
Rotors are fun -- they're shaped like a drum!
Rotors are the most centrifugal of all.

Rotors, rotors, rotors.
Rotors.

LostKause's avatar I would like to get back to Rotors too!

Has anyone ever been on Time Shaft at KD? I regret not ever riding it. What was the light show like? Was there a story to the theme?

I rode the Rotor at SFGAdv, KW, and I think HP. I really like these rides a lot!!!

Wow! Looks like the bully has been kicked in the nuts and is rolling around the floor. Back in first grade you learn a great life lesson. When the bully confronts you, either take the beating, or kick the 6th grader in the nuts. With the kick you'll surely feel more wrath of the pathetic bully down the road.

But with the kick the best part is they get exposed for the coward and fake they are as they roll around on the grass. Just because you've been around doesn't mean that you're not out of control. Enjoy it Playa and try to learn from it.

Btw if you're curious about Playa's kissing up, just scroll up to his "bastard" and "special olympics" post. It's just the tip of the stinky, suck up iceberg. It's not stalky at all, just observational. *** Edited 5/9/2008 8:14:12 AM UTC by Cropsey*** *** Edited 5/9/2008 8:46:01 AM UTC by Cropsey***

LostKause's avatar GREAT IDEA! HAHA! It could have sound effects and a slight spray of water from the center. The outside of the Rotor could look like the latest Maytag Washing Machine giant sized!

The cockroach has lots of spare time, just likes to present the illusion that he has a life. And for the record, when the drive thru speaker isn't working well that doesn't really constitute "downtime" at work. I'm sure he could be sweeping up the parking lot or something instead of posting here.

no, Maytag couldn't be the sponsor of the ride, don't you see the commercials of the Maytag guy always sitting around cause there is never a problem? If 6 Flags had the ride in their park, it could be closed for many reasons, such as:

lack of staff (need to have revenue generating games and overpriced food stands open)
maintenance closure
waiting for part since they can't seem to machine any of their own parts
many more excuses I'm sure, just can't think of any others at the moment

I've gotta call you out on this one. I don't care what time you were posting, or even your assertion that whatever never happened. You're attacking the member instead of the plausibility, and frankly that's not cool.

You do sarcasm well enough, just make sure it's not all you do.
