HAHA Coasterdude!! Nice use of the stupid rumors for amusement. I have to agree that Magnum does not deserve all of the praise that it has received. I have ridden it and it goes seems to be missing a certain something. I jus think that Magnum is well overrated. I would not mind watching it sink in the sand also. HAHA!
Dueling Dragons. Everyone says this ride is awesome. I agree the idea is great and the themeing is spectacular, the ride wasn't that exciting. Perhaps it's just me, but both seemed slow. Like I said, I love the way they look, and it is a great idea, but the ride wasn't that good. It could have been because I had just ridden Hulk 10 minutes before and was expecting this to be just as good if not better. I will get to try it out again in November.
Woah, for my post, just take what SFGA2001 said and reverse the positions of Dueling Dragons and Hulk. IMO DD (especially Fire) rocked, Hulk *yawn*, did someone hear something :). jeremy --ICE, ICE, baby
I was disappointed by Millenium Force. You heard me right, please no death threats! I think the coaster is ok, but the lift hill was way too fast and ruined the effect of being up so high. And I actually felt more butterflys on Corkscrew than on MF. Also, I don't like Mantis, but that is another post for another day.
Wait a second? I see ROLLER COASTER ENTHUSIASTS saying they want a coaster burned to the ground... This is a sad day. So you people are saying if in the middle of the night they went in to Cedar Point and bulldozed Magnum and MForce, and torn down Hulk at IOA, then you WOULD BE HAPPY??? /me is very confused and a bit sad
I would absolutely, positively, definately 100% say BLUE STREAK at Cedar Point.
Everyone praises that coaster for its nastalgic value... for its ACE Coaster classic out & back, but to me...
I will back it up with a lil' explanation. It appears all simple. You go up the hill and then start going down and up blah blah blah, turn around up & down and blah blah blah. You'd think that with such a simple layout, how could that coaster be rough?!
It was ROUGH!! It was jerky. I'd much rather ride Mean Streak 5 more times than Blue Streak. Going up or down, it just jerked too much and was a head banger!
I wanted to like it, but I was really glad when the coaster was over with!!!
(ps: I hope they re-tracked that coaster this year, otherwise... it's gonna get 2 less riders this year)
I have to say Magnum, it just didn't do it for me. The second half was missing something, I loved the first drop, but after that all I felt was my knees hurting. I'll definitely ride it again, I just didn't think it was as good as I had heard.
