I guess I'm the only one who doesn't find the thread even the tiniest bit amusing. It's got an awful title that doesn't mean anything, and it's going nowhere. Why isn't it closed yet?

It's not closed because it was waiting for a wacky reply. Like this:

No tubes were hurt in the making of that video.

I agree, and I started this link. I thought sharing with you the video I found on youtube would be cool. I wont lie, I must have watched storm runner hundreds of times, I'M SICK! But this thread should be deleated. Jeff, mark my words. There use to be a local forum in my hometown called the purple page. When you let childish people take over though the good posters leave and the whole page goes to sh*t. I love this page and this site, but please take a tough stance now to preserve it.

janfrederick's avatar Now now...with an ambiguous title for a topic that just about everyone who doesn't live under a rock knows about, you shouldn't have expected more.

OK, let's sing together now: Don't fall in looooooove...she's a beauty...one in a million girl... ;)

Who's that? Who's that? Anyone?

janfrederick's avatar Ah, I knew Gator would have my back. Yah, I had an old coworker who was obsessed with them. Then again, he thought I was wierd for liking coasters so much.

Sorry to hear about your youtube...just be happy someone hasn't noticed all the bandwidth going to CB. ;)

CoasterDiscern's avatar I was just joking around gary. Sometimes coasterbuzzers get carried away an I can't resist.

I find that there is alot POV's on you tube to watch, and lot's of people out there have taped there coaster ridding and slapped it on you tube. POV's are not well liked around here for ninty percent of the people who made pov's on you tube are anti-coaster enthusiasts and could give two craps about what we are made up of. Ill stop there, but it's just not a good thread.

Peace and Love brother!


Ask not what you can do for a coaster, but what a coaster can do for you.

janfrederick's avatar I don't think they are not well liked, it's just that a) A lot of them are created by breaking park rules, and b) It's much more fun to ride it in person.

CoasterDiscern's avatar ^^ It worries me to know an insecure camera in somebody's hand that is not strapped on or taped could rattle lose and really hurt someone. Think how many have done that. It's very unlikely an occurance of such would happen, but I still don't like the chances of it.

Unlikely?

While I was at Knott's in March for Solace this year, during the ERT for Ghostrider the one attendant was being VERY particular on cameras. Apparently someone earlier in the day had a camera on the ride.. long story short, the camera hit a kid on the midwat in the face causing 19 stitches.

I've personally *almost* gotten hit with a camera phone in the Talon plaza at Dorney. I was sitting on a bench under the inclined spiral, and a phone hit the ground about a foot in front of me, and bounced into a bush. I got up and left the area because I did *NOT* want to find out who it belonged to. (Granted, I don't know if it was being use as a phone or as a camera at the point it flew off.. but both are equally stupid on a coaster, not to mention against park rules)

Want some cheese with that whine?

Get over it. I've been hit in the head by a cell phone falling off a ride and I don't whine and complain about it.

^ I actually tend to agree. People are going to break the rules, it happens, not much complaining will do about it. If you're seriously injured, then of course you have legal recourse to follow through and get compensated, but otherwise, who cares.

It's just another argument where the growing number of "better than thou" enthusiasts can argue their point and make themselves feel superior over those who might not care as much, i.e. the restraint discussions following the death of the enthusiast at Holiday World. Yea... some people with cameras drop them, yea some people who defeat restraints fall out, arguing about it doesn't change those facts and it never will. *** Edited 12/3/2006 12:26:11 AM UTC by RollrCoastrCrazy***

Lord Gonchar's avatar It has nothing to do with safety and everything to do with respect for me.

Could I hold onto my camera on a coaster ride? Probably with 100% success.

The problem is most (not all, but far and away...most) parks do not want guests using cameras on-ride.

Is simply following the expected behavior of the very parks that allow us to pursue this hobby really acting 'houlier than thou?'

I fail to see the mystery. If the park forbids it and you do anyway - you're an asshole. If they allow it - more power to you for getting boring POV.

(and the underpaid ride-op checking restraints at the local SF doesn't count as getting permission)

CoasterDiscern's avatar ^I will agree 100%. POV does very little for me, if anything. Watching a little three by three screen of a coaster rumbling so hard the camera can't stabalize.

Uuummm...............It's not even funny, that is how dumb all the POV's look.

I am guilty of searching out alot of POV's in the past and wanting to find them all, but they really are useless. Also, the more I turn into a great coaster enthusiast, the more hate I have for them. Just me, but hey, they still don't do much.

Yeah, I agree 100 percent. It's all about respect of the park. Following the rules isn't exactly hardest thing to do.

My problem is that the majority of enthusiasts on this board (and others) get their panties in a twist whenever anyone brings up one of three topics... And this is one of those topics - And I've held back for long enough.

Quite frankly, if you aren't an employed by the park you're currently visiting, you have no right to say a damn thing - except to a park employee. It's the parks job to police and monitor their parks. They have trained personel and security teams with cameras that monitor every inch of the park, and they don't want or need some dumbass enthusiast screaming at some kid because he pulled out his camera on a ride. We aren't "park-sponsored police" or any of that crap. If you see something happen, just tell someone of more importance than you (an employee/security/your cat), and move on with your life. These idiots that I always hear about pulling out their ACE (or any other club) cards that try to play "park employee" are just effing rediculous.

If you want to make a diffrence, talk to park personel and then move on with your life.
