This year it's in Orlando. Maybe this is when we'll see what Intamin AG has up their sleeves for Cedar Point. They might have a mini-model or graphic interpretations of it! ;)

Yeah, and it was in Orlando last year.

And for another 2 more years I believe....

It's kind of funny to see that Intamin describes their inverted complete curcuit coasters as suspended looping coasters.

I thought Vekoma was the company that coined that terminology.

Intamin never has anything to get excited about at their booth.

Now Schwarzkopf... that's fun. Lots of German guys smoking in the non-smoking building. Good times.

I wonder if Vekoma will again show up with their insane giant booth and leather furniture. Was kind of funny to see that last year only a couple weeks after announcing bankruptcy.

Maybe it was more like a garage sale to sell the fancy furniture off and make a few bucks. Didn't you see the price tags hanging from the chairs? :)

Don't look for models or artwork of CP's 2003 coaster at the Intamin booth if the park has not announced the ride as of the convention.

Not really. Intamin's "inverted" coaster is technically a "suspended looping coaster."

Hey - if you know your company is going down the drain, you might as well get what you can while you're still there, suck it for what it is worth. Those executives did need some furniture for the Kumbak Coaster's office, and hey - if you can snag it before the old company goes down, then good on you.

So what if the best coaster in Australia is a second hand Arrow?

I find it odd how you can complain about smokers in lines but find Germans who smoke in a non-smoking facility "fun". Please explain the difference. Is it because they are German?

If someone can post a link to the information about the show, specifically pertaining to attending the show itself, that would be most helpful. I'm going to be living in Orlando at the end of this month, so I would love to attend the show! :) I wanted to go last year but couldn't. It looks like a blast!

I'm simply stating the irony. Did I say it was OK?

Remember: It is a professional conference and trade show, not a place for enthusiasts to go and beat down parks managers and vendors about what they're doing next year.

That was irony? Hardly. It smacks of a double standard to me. GP smoking in lines = bad. Let's look at a quote from you today on GTTP's General Forum under a topic called: How do people get away with smoking in line?


Some girl who wasn't even old enough was smoking in line for Alpengeist one day. It made my allergies go nuts instantly. I sneezed so hard that I made her jump (yeah, I forced it a little). I pointed at the sign and said to her, "Thank you for not smoking."

That in itself was pretty funny, but the dude in front of me took it even further. He's like, "Oh my God, are you allergic to smoke?" He then turns to the girl and starts lecturing her about how bad it is for me and bad for her health. Embarassed the hell out of her in front of a lot of people. Frankly she deserved it for being such an inconsiderate twit.



But German coaster designers smoking at IAAPA in a non-smoking facility = Good Times. Oh the irony of it all. Please.You wouldn't dare call those Germans on smoking indoors would you? I doubt it.

Tango, STFU. He was trying to state something funny.

Obviously you have no sense of humor. I swear...some people....

Dude, you need a shake-up with Schwarzkopf's robotic arm-thing.

Coaster131, you obviously don't understand Tango's point:

By insulting the owner of a popular website, he becomes cooler! The kids at school think he's hardcore now...

tambo: Humor must be lost on you. I know what I said on GTTP, what's your point? Is sarcasm that hard to understand? I think the Schwarzkopf people are morons too.

Say it with me... irony.

This is turning out to be the worst week on my sites in at least a year. Humor, common sense, intelligence have left the building. It's only October.

Is it May yet?
