Waith a sec, not all classic coasters are quality. I roade Thunderbolt, an ACE coaster Classic, at SFNE this summer. I thought it was one of the worst coasters I've ridden. Granted, it may have had something to do with the slow ops, but that's beside the point.

Can we considar MF a "modern classic," by now?

Alot of it is person opinion, I think. I first rode Thunderbolt years before the surge of newer CCI fast - balls out coasters. To me, it's fun. It's not the most intense, but it's VERY comfortable, you 'smash' your riding partner, and it has what used to be known as pacing. I can see where after hearing all these rave reviews, and riding many new sleek designs, that Thunderbolt can be a dissapointment.

Personally, I don't consider MForce to be a classic. I rode it 2 times opening year (yes, I would like to ride it more), but other than the cool lift and great first drop, it didn't impress me. Magnum, that's a classic. It kicks your butt, and feels like a roller coaster.

Wow, look at this:

Just another Shwarzy shuttle available for Holiday World :) (or some other very lucky place). It's even a newer model! (Which take off a little faster, and usually run up the back spike a little higher due to more available brake space, I think.)

Since we're discussing Anton shuttles and availability: Wondering about the status of Turbine at this point... http://www.rcdb.com/921.htm

^Yes, it went from AW to Joyland. Was supposed to be erected year after year, vaguely recall hearing about the difficulties they were having getting the ride re-constructed.

^Joyland has a very high water table, and they couldn't find a good enough spot to pour the footers for the ride. They explored different options, but nothing has worked out in the end.

It's really sad, Joyland is a class act. They refurbished Greezed Lightnin's Intamin train with love and detail as well. Good thing is, it will probably live on somewhere else ;)

Ummm....I posted the link for the coaster sale on the first page. Was no one listening?

Anyways, woulden't a shuttle coaster look good at holiday world?


what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.
I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

^I thought someone did crazy horse, sorry about that.

I think one of these shuttles would look GREAT at Holiday World. Hmmm... what would be some good names for a shuttle coaster in 4th of July???

Bottle Rocket :)

Or, they could re-use Firecracker. Since this one packs a little more punch, they could call it the M-80.

Whatever it would be called, I'm sure it would be an awesome, welcome addition to the park ;)

If it was in Christmas it could be Santa's sleigh on speed. Sorry in advance, it was goofy enough to me.

Revolution would be good ... wait that's already used at the park. It's such a great coaster name. Holiday World is very creative, I'm sure they would come up with something great.

They could add another wooden coaster and call it the Fourth of July.

I always wanted to see one of these out on the lake at Indiana Beach, but I would be very happy to have an Anton at Holiday World. Maybe this could be the HoliLooper. :)

If it were not for Knoebels being up to their eyeballs in coaster construction I would love to see this come to Elysburg... I have not ridden a shuttle loop since Viper at SFoG, and fell in love instantly.

Maybe someone here can clear this up for me, I thought that Stengle did designs for Anton who was more the general conractor, and Intamin did the physical fabrication. Not sure where I got that idea, but I am quite sure someone here will correct me...


Real men ride wood... coasters that is!
