That's ok Jeff, your secret is safe with me (heck, my life revolves around Providence!;))

It's my understanding that Worlds Best Thrill Parks is a new one, and the others are repeats (but I never saw Designing Fear or CoasterMania.)

Okay, you guys both need help :). I mean 'Dark Angel' is okay (well IMO the show blows, but she is FINE!!!) The other two shows....
--who is glad none of these shows comes on on Saturday so he doesnt have to miss Pokemon....;) *** This post was edited by 2Hostyl on 12/15/2000. ***

When is the special on the construction of Steel Dragon 2000 supposed to air? I know the Discovery channel is supposed to air it I just don't know when. Anyone out there know when?

A couple of the new ones, including the Cedar Point show, will air starting in May.

Travel Channel is showing "Amusement Parks" tonight @10PM, in case you missed it the last 1000 times it was on, but I'll be watching it again just because it's there. These shows have awesome replay, although I hate the parts they show with Drachen Fire!!!!!

I like that one...

I like that show too but they say Knoebels is north of Scranton that would be near the NY border. I'll be tuning in this Wednsday at 9pm on the travel channel.

As long as it does not interrupt DragonBall Z, I am a happy camper.

Check at, Sorry Jeff(It does NOT come close to this site!) It has a TV Guide on it under the resources section that is the only thing I ever look at there cause the Forums suck.
