I was just wondering if any of you fellow buzzers have and any secrets on your fav. coaster.  Like mine is the trick track on shivering timbres is pretty cool.  So if you know something about your fav. coaster that nobody seems to notice or if you just have an interesting fact then just reply ok cool!

The 4th turnaround on the PNE Coaster has an element I have never experienced on any other coaster.Exiting the turnaround you are slammed against the side of the seat,then it feels like the train is going to fall out from underneath you.A very unique moment of airtime!Good thing that the Carl Phare trains are very comfortable.

You can open the restraints on some coasters during the ride... but I won't say which company's trains are like this.

Sticking with the not naming.  If you prop your legs up on certain coasters you can make it go to just the yellow click.  Hold you legs like that until after the first drop and you will get made airtime.  The attendant didn't even care that it just made it past a certain point on the restraint.  Shows how much she cared about me!

I'll give away the BGT "secret", but only since you guys are such good friends....come during the Winter, never get off the rides!  Unlike most parks, if noone is waiting for your seat/row, you can ride all you want...esp. on Kumba o and Montu.  I have come upon this re-ride situation a few times on the Gwazi, but not NEARLY as often for obvious reasons...

Simmer down now... I'm not saying for anyone to do it, I am just saying it can be done (my previous message).

Hahaha... no worries bud.  I was only joking.  The only animosity I have is for my good friend rollergatorwoodie who apparently doesn't want anyone else to get rerides but himself!  How selfish.... or is that clever.  I can never tell.  If his Florida Gators would have taken care of business, my Gamecocks would be in O-town instead of Tampa anyway making all this a moot point.  :oD

And what's all this about IoA giving free admission for a year if you buy a ticket before Jan. 1??  Wow, and to think I was probably going back there anyway.  ;)

rollergator, I got the same treatment at SFMM for Viper, but the ride ops at Goliath made us go all the way through the queue. If you've never ridden Goliath, it takes about 10 minutes from the exit platform back to the ride platform if you go all the way out and back through the queue. Its VERY long. I'll have to make my way to Florida in the winter and take advantage of these short (non-existent) lines. I have never been to Florida or any of the Florida parks. I would love to get out there, but not this winter. Perhaps next....

The "whiplash" element on Conneaut's Blue Streak. That was a huge surprise. It's right after the turn around.

How about getting back on the topic?

Well, yeah, you can open then on just about any coaster, but most require some gymnastic skills and maybe a tool to do so.  I mean that one particular company's trains can be fairly easy and inconspicuously opened while the ride is going.
