According to RCDB, there are still 3 jet star 2's left operating out of the 10 that were originally built. One in Utah, one in Poland, and one in Sweden.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

PRESERVE HISTORY! it's important! :angry:


A themepark is a business, not a museum. And your precious classic roller coaster was saved. It's being restored and sold.

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

History is important, I'm not arguing with you there. But, as a business, Slagharen has every right to want to move forward. If Slagharen cared so little about Thunder Loop's history, they would have sold the blasted thing for scrap - and they didn't. Part of the reason why these kinds of Schwarzkopf coasters often get restored instead of scrapped is because they're designed to be taken apart and relocated.

Check out our Onride & Offride video from Gold Rush

ADMIN EDIT:

Since you've only ever really come on our forums to spam your videos (15 out of 18 of your posts were video spam), which we find fairly rude and obnoxious, we are going to replace your video with our video, and if you don't like that, you can always just not post here anymore. Got it? Thanks!

That looks like a really cool ride! Not sure if I'll ever ride it at Slagharen, but would love to see something like it in the States.

It seems like everyone is copying the forwards-backwards-forwards launch that Premier came up with for the SkyRocket II now.
Top 5 Wood- Phoenix, Boulder Dash, El Toro, Voyage, Cornball Express
Top 5 Steel- Iron Rattler, Fury 325, Twisted Colossus, Millennium Force, Phantom's Revenge
Top 5 Parks- Disneyland, Knoebels, Cedar Point, Magic Kingdom, Busch Gardens Williamsburg
