  1. Yes. Classic or not, GC is simply the worst Arrow looper layout ever made, ever. Its ONLY saving grace was its location when it was built. It's a terrible, terrible coaster and I stand by my words. Why is BS a one trick pony? You get insane hangtime on the lift, the lift is terrifying till you clear it, especially after what happened at Magic Springs, and then you get an awesome shuttle section that leaves your guts at the top. Not to mention the roll at the top. I am seeing three tricks here - upside down lift hill, heartline roll and full speed shuttle section. I'd happily ride it many
  2. The spinning car will be mental, especially if Mack are allowing it to spin up the rear spike.. spinning airtime! I hope they don't neuter the spinning too much with the magnets. I think for a park reject, DW paid way too much for this (unless they are wrong, Wikipedia claim 32,000,000 USD)!, and for that insane money I would have much preferred a custom looper with much better drops and airtime, but hey, we are in OZ, and I'll take what I can get. I will be there day one to ride it.
  3. I am probably the only one here that is absolutely gutted Buzzsaw has closed.. The only Maurer Skyloop in the Southern Hemisphere and one of very few in the world, I find them absolutely terrifying in the best way possible, and I love the final back and forth shuttle run in the very back seat.. I don't understand the hate.. At 403 coasters, I have ridden a ton of bad ones (the worst ever in my lifetime being the long defunct Hercules at Dorney Park), and this rates no where near the worst. With Steel Taipan close by, and a new paint job (maybe jet black track and orange supports to flip
  4. From cleveland? Well I guess so.. I do have friends in San Antonio and also another couple close by... I guess I could fly there from CLE and then maybe even take the houston/Sydney route home. Food for thought. I've never done an organised coaster tour group.. i've always spent months planning my own, always starting in late May through end June.. I've only ever missed a couple I wanted to ride that way and lines were bearable in all cases, except SFMM, but i'd now probably get the paid flash pass thingie, I never want to wait that long for X again LOL. Anyway point being, would be nice for s
  5. very interested but no SFFT is too much of a loss for me, sorry.. Being in the US and not riding WW and Iron Rattler is something I just can't accept. Just being honest about it.
  6. I am a bit disappointed with the back seat thing because there is currently no way to get the *maximum* first drop "pull down" airtime on the stengel dive when facing forward. Even just one row makes a difference, the airtime will be slightly lessened. I would have liked it all facing forwards and for a limited special event now and then they could have it ALL backwards for a week or so. Something like that. The good thing is with only one row, if it's not too popular they can reverse it easily
  7. Mako was a huge disappointment to me, i far prefer apollo's which is 2 decades it's junior. Taron was ok, it was sort of exciting but i just get bored with twisters, including woodies. I rode gci roar first year and i renamed it yawn (to quote another example). Taron has an exciting launch and actually does have some air in front seat, and look, it's a bit of rush, but to *me*, not actually "thrilling". Cool? any need to personally insult me? No i'm not "nuts", i just have my own coaster preferences like everyone does. I bet you there will be no airtime in the ba
  8. I agree Xcellerator is a nothing after drop, but the height and overall top speed give it the edge for me. The fact that it has lap bars mean it will always win for me in any case. Just like i far prefer TDR to Kingda for that same reason (and kingda airtime hill has zero airtime anyway so i don't know why it's there). the sheer height of those and again INSANE speed give them the edge for me even though they are one trick wonder. But what exactly does superman do after the launch and first airtime hill anyway.?. Maybe I am missing something lol? A couple twists and turns and a tunnel and tini
  9. For some reason, all ways to edit my post seem to have disappeared. I just wanted to be fair and clarify a couple of things. This is all personal opinion.. for example, i understand many people love I305 but that wasn't my sort of thing either as it was more about speed and turns. But i'd still ride it if that's all that was on offer.. I genuinely apologise if my post upset anyone, it was merely an opinion on what I have seen. I've now ridden just under 800 coasters so have tended to form my own firm styles of coaster i love and don't love by now. PS I also just want to explain
  10. um, didn't we just get a trim too? and it's still early days of testing. B&M hypers are the bomb. Raging bull is the most neutered one with trims and just awful, but apollo's, nitro, shambhala and more are all awesome. Literally out of your seat if you are in the back for most of the ride. Being low to the ground and twists and turns is exactly why i don't like it. I wanted drops. Flash's loop is about hang time with the lapbar, like full throttle's. That's actually a very exciting feeling IMO. Not every loop has to be about high G's.. and not to forget flash is the world's lar
  11. I wish Mark could clarify whether we are getting a coster or not.. Most reports just mentioned rides, and i had seen one report that said a roller coaster. Then i saw the accomodation planned and after thinking 50 million was plenty for one killer coaster, a couple great flats and refurb, i realised it was very unlikely. All that money is going to go to the hotel. In any case, if we do get a small coaster i would love it to be something australia doesn't have. Keeping my fingers crossed!
  12. Am i allowed to give my opinion in this topic about this coaster? I was already underwhelmed from the animated POV but quietly kept myself excited. From what i have seen, it's no flash. No comparison. The first drop, airtime hill and inverted loop are it for this coaster, then it's a nothing coaster as far as i am concerned. Definitely the weakest of all of mack's bigger coasters. For some reason we seem to get the worst of everything in OZ.. we get the worst el loco of the lot cause it's loaded with trims, no excitement or adrenaline at all, and we get an ok and good for oz, b
  13. Any coaster ideas? If one thing is needed in vic, it;s a decent coaster. Congrats.. i am glad we are getting something believe m
  14. demolish and put a great hyper/multilooper as the centrepiece of gold rush, to replace both eureka and TRR
  15. i think it's a good idea.. the next row will still have the typical back seat airtime on drops, and the very back reverse seat should be a crazy experience on that first drop.. I'm quite happy with this..
