Twas the Night Before Christmas, Enthusiast Style

Saturday, December 24, 2011 10:09 PM

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the site,
Not a thread was downloading, not even a byte.
The enthusiasts' heads were hung, in a prayer,
For a decent new Intamin--with a wee bit of air.

The posters were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of GCI's danced in their heads.
And Jeff with his pancakes, and Gonch with his...
with, er....

Oh, hell with it. Merry Christmas, Coasterbuzzers one and all.

And he called them by name:

On Voyage, On Boulderdash On Hades and Raven, On Boardwalk Bullet, On Thunderhead, On Legend and Tremors!

"A world record woodie..will be built on that lot," said the guy who just sold me some white dippin' dots.

Then I felt the magic, when I tried to sit...the lap bar pressed downward, I finally fit!

Then a light rain decended as if it rehearesed - and ten minutes later..the crowds all dispersed.

And after the mist, there were no more foul grinches. (And "Pre-flux" at last had reached 54 inches!)

Here's To Shorter Lines & Longer Trip Reports!

And Gonch with..
a woman's leg over his shoulder?

Nice poetry btw, Smith and Reflux.

Actually, I liked Regulus' contribution as well!

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

Would have been better if it rhymed.

Or Maverick.

I like 'pimp hat', though 'a woman's leg over his shoulder' would be just as good if you could fit it into the meter... :)

There's also the popular Christmas song, I saw Gonchar kissing his Q-Bot.

...Or "Lord Goncher got ran over by a Q-Bot".

...Walkin' up the exit one summer day
You might think there's no such thing as karma
But as for me and Billy we believe.

To the tune of Santa Claus is Coming To Town:

You better watch out, you better not cry
Better not shout, I'm telling you why
Front-of-line is going nowhere


To the tune of Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer:

Gonchar the Q-bot user
never waited in a line
And if you ever used one
You would even say it's fine


To the tune of Jingle Bells:

Front of line, front of line
Front of line all day
Oh what fun it is to ride
without long lines in my way

I hate Christmas.

Gonch can suck the charm right out of a holiday. I shudder to imagine what he'd do to Arbor Day... ;)

You're a mean one, Mister Gonch;
My spot in line you'll steal!
With your cuddly little Flash Pass
You will skip the line with zeal,
Mister GoooOOONCH!

You're a chocolate frozen banana... that costs as much as family meeeeal!

Ha! Nice. :)

I wouldn't touch the people in the stand-by line with a 39-and-a-half foot pole.

You've got all the tender sweetness of a seasick crocodile.

Okay, maybe a bit late, but I couldn't resist...

When out on the midway, there arose such a clatter,
An Intamin cable had snapped into matter!

Away to the Dragster the repairmen flew like a flash,
Tore open the lap bars, while the ride crew cleaned up the trash.

The riders all frowning, having waited two hours, expected maintenance to have it fixed within minutes using super powers.

When what to my wondering eyes should appear, but Matt Quimet holding some replacement gear!

He replaced the cable himself in a blink, and he handed free tickets to all with a wink.

I heard him exclaim, as he drove out of sight, “Wonderful family memories for all...I’ll make it right!”

From the Top of Kingdom Ka to the top of the World, dash away dash away dash away All!

Happy New Year Everyone, may your Lines be short and your rides be long! :)
