Skyhawk Opening - Paul Rueben, was he there?

Friday, May 12, 2006 7:39 AM
I downloaded the videos from pointbuzz and watched them on opening day of Skyhawk. I am almost sure at the very end of one of the videos I saw Paul Rueben getting on the ride. Was he there and is the best swing ride ever?

You should try reading some of the trip reports, then you'd know.

How incredibly helpful.

Well it only took 2 posts to get a pissing match started. Just another day at the 'Buzz.

CoasterDaddy- Unfortuately I'm of no help to your question. I wouldn't be surprised if he was there though.

Hmm... Does he live nearby or something?

This isn't a pissing match.

I posted one of the two Skyhawk Media Day trip reports, and in it, it clearly says Paul Ruben was there. Then some people added comments about him declaring Skyhawk the best coaster ever, etc.

I'm just saying, look around a little bit and try to find the answer to your question before you start a thread. That's all.

Maybe he missed it Den, chill out some. Its not that big of a deal.

It would take all day to read all the trip reports. And it really bugs me when someone jumps on someone else for asking a question.

Or maybe, like a regular person, he hadn't thought that many people know who Paul Rueben IS and would fail to mention them in a trip report.

Maybe you could have just copied and pasted the link to your TR? That way, it's not as "pissy", it gives him the idea you were trying to get across, and it gives him his answer.

How and WHY did Paul Rueben get such fame?
Friday, May 12, 2006 1:52 PM
He's actually a good actor. He was absolutely brilliant in Blow. Pee Wee's Big Adventure, on the other hand...

Well, he attended alot of coaster events, and often was the person the media interviewed. Why, I don't know... Maybe he was president of ACE or something.

He really made a name for himself in the coaster-nerd community by declaring Dragster the his favorite coaster (or maybe the wording was The World's Best Coaster) before it even opened. So now, he's an easy target for jokes, apparently.

I think he's always been that.

Its one of those things everyone thinks is so funny, but it really isn't at all.

If it were the Paul Reubens that djDaemon is talking about, that would be something interesting!

Heh, on another note there is apparently a Paul Reubens Day in San Fran.

What part of my posts indicates that I'm being pissy, that I need to "chill out," that I'm "jumping" on someone, etc.? My first post was a little smart-assy, but I tried to be as chill as possible in the second one.

I guess chill doesn't come across in internet forums...

Since we're talking about Cedar Point, any idea if they're getting a new ride or coaster next year? I couldn't find any threads addressing this particular issue.

He was there, and he says that Skyhawk is the best swing ride in the world. ;)

Which brings me to another point, why *is* P-Diddy the subject of such vitriol? Yes, he often says that many rides are "best" or "his favorite", but why not just take that at face value? I remember someone on these, or other forums stating that their favorite coaster is whichever one they happen to be on at the time. That's fair.

And honestly, my opinion has changed several times over the years, most often when I get to ride a new ride. Heck, even *without* getting on something new, if you asked me what was my favorite coaster you'd likely get the response of The Legend, Lightining Racer, Raging Bull, or even Phantom's Revenge depending on what day you asked me. I dont think that a flip-floppy opinion is enough to make the man so ill-regarded.

Now if he makes a pompous-diva-like ass of himself off camera, that would be a completely different story...
