Good work, Wabash...

O2 Tower was all that, the article doesn't mention it's both a turbo-shot AND a turbo-drop, a combo I've never ridden before. I guess next weekend's trip to SFoG will be worthwhile after all...hehe...;). I'll get LoCoSuMo (TM) and TR:TR during the week after SRM...:)

Hey Gator...I hold the LoCoSuMo trademark, and don't you forget it ;-) Nice to see it make the list, I still feel this is going to be the sleeper hit of the year and make a high debut on Mitch's poll.

Well, I was already on Tomb Raider and thought it was pretty cool and I hope to ride on the Lost Coaster!

Some of those Roller Coaster stats in that purple box are wrong. They don't mention Dodonpa, which is faster than S:TE, and they say Beast is the longest coaster. Maybe they're only talking about in the US.

...'Moosh, I did put the (TM) after the name....it counts as "intellectual property", at least in these parts, ROFL...

Cool article good to see Indiana Beach is getting publicity for the lost coaster.

R-gator - I saw the (TM) but thought you were insinuating ownership yourself. I'm not often that creative or witty [or intellectual] so when it happens I get posessive ;-) I won't charge you a fee for using it, tho...LOL! Actually its pretty cool to see other people using it. The last time I influenced a group of people it was at the PPP Hangover Day and I got a train load of enthusiasts to count the last four bunnies on Phoenix ["One! Two! Three! Slam!"].

I'm just passing this item along. I was made aware of it by the ACE reps for this county. We are all extremely excited about LoCoSuMo. Just less than a month til the big opening!

I'm generally a *bit* more concerned about giving credit than taking credit....shoot, I haven't had an original thought in decades!

Well, I've had this signature for quite a while. I think that it does a pretty good job of giving credit

Would have been a bit more balanced report if they had included a ride from the west. X-cuse me, I wonder what ride that would have been?

Good point coasterman. X seems like an obvious choice for a list like this.

Though I cant remember if it opened this year, or in 2001.

R-gator & Glitch - I'm not really all that worried about "ownership." I think most people who are familiar w/ LoCoSuMo know it sprung from my warped mind, tho I do appreciate the mention in your sig, Eric. Gator, now that I've had one original thought in my lifetime I'm sure your's is next ;-)

Our regional reps., Carol and Scott Holmes, did tell the park owners of your clever moniker, Mamoosh. They found it very amusing. Maybe if you do the park this summer you need to wear a shirt labeled.... I B LoCoSuMo ... we'll know who you are!

Rollergator, it's actually an S&S Double Shot.

I am happy to see LoCoSuMo on there! And even happier to say that I'll get on two of these listed attractions. Thanx for the info Wabash! You can never go wrong with Tim's picks.
