your 3 favorite coaster sounds

Thursday, April 25, 2002 10:57 AM

just wandering what sounds a coaster makes that you like the most. most people would hate it, but i think they are the best sounds in the world(but music is great too!)

my 3 are:

1.)a LIM launch...(volcano, etc)

2.)Any B&M that hasnt had gravel put in the supports/track(incredible hulk)

3.)And for some reason, i like the sound the brakes make when they release. either a soft "pop" or the air release.

those are mine...what are yours?

I love the loud roaring sound of B&M coasters (ex. Medusa)

Lift hill(specificly the anti-rollback, where the chaindog makes that clicking sound.)

Screaming riders if that counts concidering it's not the coaster but the people riding the coaster

Are roller coasters my life? NO, but I certainly like them!

S:ROS's hill - click, click, click, vroooooooommmmmmmm. I love the sound of the motor speeding up as soon as the train is completely engaged.

1) Arrow chain lifts-Nothing in a park sounds better.

2)The roar of a first drop(and the screams that go with it).

3)The train screaming over wooden track-The sound of Ghostrider at night is SO awesome!

LIM Launch (Especially on S:UE & The sound on the Hold.)

The sound of X~Flight hitting the last break run

And I'm with Coasterdude, the "pop"

Mine would have to be...

1.) The short releases of the brakes on Premier LIM shuttle coasters.. tst..tst..tst..tst..tst,.tst.. There is so much anticipation waiting for the launch there...

2.) The errie sound of Wooden coaster track and supports bending and squeaking as you witness the structure move from side to side while waiting in the queue.

3.) That wonderful roar that most B&M coasters make as they fly along the track at fast speeds.

I'm sure I could think of more, but those are the ones that come to mind at the moment :)

The nothing of Intamin lifts.

Son of Beast's roaring chain dog at the top of the lift.

The extremely noisy brakes of King Cobra.

It's his turn to feast, when you ride the Son of Beast.

1) The lift

2) Lim launch

3) Right before you launch on a premier that sound. like on chiller, 3..2..1 (sound) Launch.

Favorite sounds:

Viper's (SFGAm) chain lift. And the smell of the oil.

B:TR's (SFGAm) roar.

The air rushing by me on MF.

Worst sound:

Any sound that a wooden coaster makes. That's what paradise sounds like for me.

I've got the best.

1. The sound that Mantis makes going around the track. It's awesome!

2. The sound Raptor makes going around the track. Another amazing sound.

3. And the best has to be sitting at the Potato Patch at Kennywood and hearing the Thunderbolt flying by on those bends. I could sit there forever! (For the fries of course!)

1. The sound of a B&M roar...such as the one from Top Gun: The Jet Coaster, although it seems to me as if they've changed something this season as it doesn't have that distinctive hum that it used to have....then maybe it's just me.

2. The clickety clack of an Arrow chainlift.

3. The sound of a wooden coaster racing along the track.

1. clackety-chink, clackety-chink, clackety-chink....(That wonderful chain-driven lift hill sound.)

2. Rooaaarrrrrrr......."WOO-HOO"!!! (The first drop).

3. And to be more ride-specific, that incredibly cool echoing roar you hear when the Montu at BGT comes out of its vertical loop and dives underground right in front of your eyes as you watch it from below.

1) The B&M roar

2) The lift hill clank

3) The sound of a train running a good woodie course.

My favorite sounds are not heard often...well except maybe at SRM: "One More Time!"

2002 - the year of IB's LoCoSuMo!!

my favorite coaster to listen to is the lochness monster at BGW. from the sound it makes after leaving the station, to the clank of the lift hill, to the breaks at the end, it just sounds great.
