I came to this thread for this level of quality, and I am not leaving disappointed. Bravo!

I know they're on a budget, but why even bother? Showing videos of Iron Shark and Hydrus and adding filters (like their last video) honestly looks much better. In the end though, I guess who cares?


"I guess who cares" is correct!

Enthusiasts should need an accurate video to know what it will look like.
The general public doesn't care about 100% accuracy.
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!

10 year anniversary of Moto quite literal coaster, plus a new ride. Isn't it Boomerangs anniversary aswell?

*Edit as I have mentioned my phone does not agree with Chrome the autocorrect does not work at all.(Not to mention my phones keyboard was desinged for ants.) It usually corrects for the worse, sorry for any trouble I've caused and thank you for pointing my mistakes.*

First off, please check your spelling. You have become very well known for not checking your posts before actually posting them.

To answer your question, there are two anniversaries coming in 2018. Motocoaster will be 10 years old and Boomerang will be 20 years old.

Yes! So much yes! Did everyone else get the mailer too?
With Darien adding an extra 2° to the Iron Shark/Euro 380 design, Tantrum will be the 9th steepest coaster.(Along with Fahrenheit, Vild-Svinet, and about six others I belive.)

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

I still haven’t gotten the mailer this year... but I’m still not too happy with the October situation. Fantasy Island is going to be open until Halloween for the 2018 season while DL is only open for a few weekends in October, also while closing at 5 or 7 pm, which is far too early. I’m disappointed.
Darien Lake is my home park! :)
