2006 Coaster Video Contest!

8 posts in this topic

Hey everyone!!! It's that time! The first 5 contest finalist videos have been POSTED!!!! http://www.themeparkreview.com/contest2006/contest2006.htm This year the competition is a little tougher. We received more entries than ever before and I'll be honest, we were a little 'harder' with judging this time around. With the addition of the Professional Amateur Videographer forum there have been a LOT of great videos posted and we felt that ONLY the 'cream of the crop' deserved to be in the final running. Out of nearly 100 videos we narrowed it down to 25 finalists. We will be posting 5 videos a week for the next 5 weeks. And for the first time ever you can now STREAM the contest entries! So what are you waiting for? Go watch the videos!!! http://www.themeparkreview.com/contest2006/contest2006.htm --Robb

The next 5 videos have been posted! http://www.themeparkreview.com/contest2006/contest2006.htm In this group we've got videos from Efteling, Port Aventura, Six Flags Magic Mountain, and a couple that take us on a whirlwind trip of parks all over the world! (Well, one of them is all over hicksville midwest USA, but that's cool too, right?) =) Enjoy this weeks installment. It's going to be hard to pick a winner! Unless it's in my nose. --Robb

The FINAL five...well, ok SIX videos have been posted!!!! http://www.themeparkreview.com/contest2006/contest2006.htm Turns out there ended up being 26 videos that made the cut, not 25. I didn't think people would mind watching MORE videos! Anyway, this round of videos take us to some interesting places like Japan's Yomiuriland and Tawian's Janfusun Fancyworld (you know the place with the OTHER B&M Dive Machine) and even to REALLY far out worlds like Canada. :P Check them all out! Voting will start NEXT WEEKEND!!!! So if you haven't downloaded all the entries yet, now is the time to do so. Have fun watching all these great coaster & theme park videos! --Robb

Hey Robb...... I've tried downloading these files several times... and the zips are always saying corrupted. Im using a 1.5Mbit connection and the file is only taking about 15 minutes, but every single one of them is coming up as corrupt.... any ideas?
