You can't stop me from writing trip reports you know.

Mabye I'll just write a TR for every week of the season just to piss you all off, cause apperantly repetitive TRs get people really angry on this site.

I never did anything wrong, just posted THREE trip reports in the period of about a month and a half. So they sounded a bit the same, but doesnt every trip report? You get in the line for a ride, you wait, you get on the ride, you analize the ride and then go to another ride. Is there some sort of TR code book that I should be following here or what, cause I never got a rule book saying what I can and cannot say in my TR. Well I am sorry that mabye I just wanted to tell other people about the great day I had, and if that means I get my head riped off by all you then I will post one every now and then ,alright? Does that make you all happy? Will it make you sleep better tonight?

And Coastaplaya, for some reason your the one who starts all of this in every one of my TRs. What did I ever do to make you so mad at me? Give me a break, I have only been on this site for just over a month now. Could you have not just tried to tell me nicely what my TR were lacking?

You will all be very glad to here that I am going out of town for a couple of weeks. I'm going over seas to Europe and hope to drop into Tivoli Gardens and ride Daemonen. Am I going to piss you all off by writing a trip report about that park, or should I keep my harmless comments to myself?

This is out of hand.

gees, lay off of Steelvenom, your crap coastaplaya (and all his followers) is annoying. If you don't want to read his TR, then don't read it ,you don't have to make stupid comments about how it is boring and you found it uninteresting. If it was so bad, just skip on to the next post, don't be writing negative crap. There are many people on this board who enjoy reading all the TR's, even if there isn't much new from time to time. Valleyfair is a home park of mine, so I like to read the latest updates from people, so I know what's going on. Its the same thing with people who write TRs on Cedar Point practically daily.

Here's a point of view that I try to teach my students: for each word you write, why is it there? What purpose does it serve? Does it need to be there, or is it wasting space?

I might translate this to TR's as: write the news, not the mundane. Using my homepark as an example, it is never surprising to find a 1.5 hour line for Millennium Force, running three trains. It is surprising to find one train off all day, or to find the line at only 30 minutes on a summer afternoon--that's something to report.

With a "home park", this becomes increasingly difficult, because everything is mundane after a while. That's when you can start sharing the hidden gems of your park that other people might not think to try. For example, I don't need to tell anyone about the Happy Friar at CP. However, the tasty breakfast buffet at the Radisson at the foot of the causeway---where kids eat free---now that's worth writing about. Perhaps the best breakfast deal at the Point, as the four of us got out of there for less than $25, generous tip included. Likewise, if you really want boysenberry syrup on your pancakes in the morning (and who doesn't like pancakes?) try the buffet at the Breakwater Cafe. On my visits, that's been the only place on Point that serves it.

He could have even talked about the KDWB contest...what were the contestants saying? What did they look like? Who puked? Who bailed out? Who was spinning discs in the broadcast booth? What were the contest officials up to?

A hundred different ways to do this and all of them better.

Not everyone is merely calling you a bore...we're nice enough to tell you why and what you can do about it.

Get over yourself.


Wednesday, June 16, 2004 12:15 PM
Well mabye you could tell me that in the first place Coastaplaya. Nobody needs your negative, dumb comments about absolutly nothing.

Do you think you could of mabye asked me what the contestants looked like or who left first instead of putting your sarcastic comments in instead?

I think your the one who needs to get over themselves. Apperantly you think that just because im new here you can give me a hard time and give me crap about DOING ABSOLUTLY NOTHING WRONG AND DOING NOTHING TO OFFEND YOU IN ANYWAY.

Negativity leads you no where, so keep it to yourself.

You'll have to excuse Playa. CPNut hasnt done anything stupid in a while so he's been chomping at the bit to come down on someone. ;)

All this fighting and everyone overlooked the most blatant mistake in the TR: He claims a Chaos ride killed 8 people at another park.

I'm pretty sure that's 100% false. The Chaos accident at Michigan's Adventure gave people minor injuries only, if that's what he's talking about.

Wednesday, June 16, 2004 12:33 PM
my bad, sorry den I thought it killed a bunch of people. Thanks for telling me NICELY.
Wednesday, June 16, 2004 2:02 PM
No Steel Venom07 is correct cuz he's a Canadian citizen.

An American casualty count of two people hospitalized translates into a Canadian casualty count of 8 people dead.

Gotta remember that pesky exchange rate...


Wednesday, June 16, 2004 2:36 PM
Wow, what a low blow. If you were trying to insult me then wow did you do a bad job.

You insulted the canadian exchange rate. That hurts, that really hurts.

Wednesday, June 16, 2004 2:51 PM
Why don't you go outside and play?

Or better yet--never ride an Intamin again? By the same Canadian casualty rate, 124 people have already fallen off of one!


Wednesday, June 16, 2004 3:13 PM
Ok, let me take it slower this time, because apperantly you didn't understand what I just wrote- YOU ARE NOT INSULTING ME IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR, FORM! Making fun of the canadian exchange rate was dumb the first time, and using it again just makes you an idiot. Or I suppose that you think your hilarious and that this will really tick me off, try again later coastaplaya, cause it aint working now.
Wednesday, June 16, 2004 3:23 PM
Steel Venom, if that were true, you wouldn't be posting these pissed off replies. Now, I gotta admin, Playa got me pretty good about a year ago, but I've gotten wiser, if you want him to shut up, you have to shut up first.
Wednesday, June 16, 2004 3:25 PM
Did I miss something about why Playa is up and arms over this thread? Seems like a fine TR to me.

Thanks for the TR, SteelVenom07. Sounds like an interesting day.

Wednesday, June 16, 2004 3:27 PM
Matt: Read the thread. Seriously. It his 3rd VF TR and the park's only been open for three full weeks thus far.

Cameron: Hey, I was just doinkin' on SV enthusiasm and you took it personal. You know me.

But even Cameron agrees that the incessant TR posting is gettin' reeeeeal old. Right?

Yeah, I just searched the last month's TRs and found a few of them, including the strange comment in the Worlds of Fun TR.
Wednesday, June 16, 2004 3:31 PM
CoasterFanMatt- Your very welcome.

I'm pissed off cause Coastaplaya won't shut his big mouth up. LEAVE MY TR ALONE!

CoasterCameron- Have you not read this thread through? Did you not see Coastaplaya's sarcastic comment about PowerTower. I replied by asking what he was talking about, and then he gives me a load of crap for nothing. So if you think in some weird way I started all of this, then your wrong. It also seems that Coastaplaya has some issues of his own to work out if all he does is sits on his computer and makes fun of the other people on this site for no good reason. That is why I am so pissed off.

Coastaplaya- Mabye you can't count but VF has actually been open for almost 5 weeks. Or mabye thats my canadian exchange rate pushing in again?

And incessant TR posting? I'VE ONLY WRITTEN 3! Not 5, not 7 BUT 3!
