"We call it the freefall drop. We had to make up a name because nobody else has a name because that doesn't exist anywhere"

O RLY?

In the Queue House video:

I'm looking forward to the item that resides with the 'oil' and 'gas' at the 1:20 mark. Even if the ride sucks, I doubt anyone will think so.

"...almost 60 mph - faster than any sports car you'll ever drive!" Hmm...

He's excited. Joking aside, I'm excited to, I think this is gonna be a great ride.

Actually he said "We take you from 0 to almost 60 mph in 3 seconds... faster than any sports car you'll ever drive."

The 'faster' referred to the time, not the speed.

(A Porsche 911 and Nissan GT-R will both beat that time, btw... so I guess he's assuming the target demographic doesn't dump 80 large on a car.)

"Quicker" is more appropriate when referring to acceleration, IMO.

I am such a word geek - will return to some crossword puzzles. ;)

Yeah and if you listen carefully, he finally does say "nothing like this in North America". Still the guy must be a relative of Jeff Siebert from the KI days.

Well he didn't call it a, "Totally immersive dark ride experience."

Yeah and I also love what they have done for the final drop. I rode BBW back in the 80s and LOVED it! That final drop was pure chaos for BBW. Actually liked it more than the Bat. I do hope to be able to get to this park and ride Verbolten. It has been too long since I have been to this park.

Speaking of unfortunate domain names, Big Bad Wolf has a very unfortunate acronym. Or fortunate, depending on your tastes.

Fortunate :)

Dorney Park's acronym/initials can have an interesting connotation in certain circles..especially the ones that would embrace the BBW reference.


The amusement park rises bold and stark..kids are huddled on the beach in a mist

CP apparently doesn't mean Cedar Point at 4chan.

^I am certain there's a (Jerry) Sandusky joke in there somewhere...but since it's presumably in poor taste, I'll let someone else have the honors...
