What happened to rolllercoasterfreaks.com?

Friday, July 4, 2003 6:21 AM
Even though this is a very old thing I just remembered it so now I'll ask.

I always used to go on rollercoasterfreaks.com for their great videos. But one day when I went on the site, nothing showed up. A completely white screen. (this happened a LONG time ago) I've always wondered what happened to it. Does anyone know what happened or if they changed the website name or something?

When I go to the site I get redirected to funguide.com. I always used to get a message saying the site was under construction and would be back up. I can't help you wth where it is now or if it is even up though

That was Brett's site. He had it up for a long time, but decided against continuing it. I don't want to delve into the reasons for fear that he may not want that info divulged. If you were looking for something in particular, email me and I can get in touch with him. He still frequents this site, so he may choose to tell you himself.

Great videos though, you're right. I downloaded every one I could get and I'm glad I did... just like I was thankful I downloaded CCIs vids before they went belly up.

I'm not an enthusiast. I just play one on message boards.

I used to also visit his site. I enjoyed the POVs alot, I'd love to be able to get the chance to download them onto my PC.

I thought he started contributing to another site and was going to make those POV's accessable from there. I don't remember which site, does anyone else?

I don't know, but I'm sure glad I had found his site before it closed and already had downloaded all of those excellent on-ride videos. It really was a great site and there was actually more to it than just the videos.

Am I really that shy?

Slurk, you are correct. He was putting his videos on another site. But that fell through as well. Like Homey G. said, the details are up to him to release, but his videos will not be appearing on that site last I heard. He is on a trip now, so I doubt you'll see him respond to this for a while. I try and remember to point it out to him when he gets back.
