Gardaland Discussion Thread

Postby Rockman89 » Fri Apr 22, 2005 7:16 pm

Hey everybody!

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Six Flags New England, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index.

Check this video that shows the S&S creation testing. You'll have to get past the great music when you watch it, though.

Is it just me, or does that thing look really awkwardly braked? I know the ride can't go too fast for some of the things it does, but it looks as if they brake on the drops instead of after them.

Damn, looks like you must have just made it! I think that they are over their bandwith. :(

If it's anything like the prototype though I remember thinking the same thing.

Hopefully we'll get to ride it in June!

I must say, I'm a bit disappointed with it. I mean, I'm sure it's a pretty cool ride, but it's just not quite what I expected. I understand that it can only go so fast, but I expected the pace to be a little faster than what it is. Oh well! Can't win everytime! Can't wait to hear a ride report.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

So is it the exact same one that had been sitting at S&S for 3 years? I remember seeing the video of that on Screamscape and thinking them "That doesn't look very cool" and I had the same reaction watching this video.

Here's one thing I thought....does it really even count as a coaster? It's looks so controlled that it almost looks more like a flat ride than a coaster.

I am very curious to ride this though, but I just have this feeling it's going to be one of those rides that may have lots of problems, and I'm not even expecting it to be open when we're there.

Stupidest ride ever!

EVER!!

I'm with Robb, is this even a coaster? It looks like it is powered most of, if not all of the time.

They should make you wear helmets when riding it because it's so retarded. They could theme it as a Short Bus Adventure.

Well I'm glad one hasn't come to a state park yet....... That things just looks unpleasant and pointless.
