I used to think differently but then I pulled the stick out of my butt and decided that if it has a train car that runs on a track than it's a roller coaster. I was just wondering what all you other coaster nerds thought.

...or at least stop reading TPR.

(C'mon Bill...why do you give these people an impossible goal???) :lmao: :lol: :p

Oh but I thought having the highest coaster count guaranteed you were going to get laid? :lol:

The more pictures I see of that Time Traveler train, the more I love it. I didn't know it lit up like that, but it's great! :lover:

Also, I'm a bit confused by the pictures of the Twisted Cyclone train. Maybe I'm being dumb, but why do the seats look off-kilter from the front? Is the front unattached from the first row? Those trains look beautiful too.

Anyone know if we will get to see Steel Vengeance trains at IAPPA?

Thanks for even more awesome footage!

I had assumed it was the zero car, like most B&M trains have.

This is such an awesome off-season re-charge. I'm still so fascinated with Intamin's booth and whatever Sandor has cookin'. Nothing will change. haha On the wooden coaster side, M&V + GG = Awesome. The sesame street coaster train is something.

Fresh mini donuts are the best. Tiny Tom Donuts finally made it into Wonderland after decades of being a fair staple. Watching those machines as a kid was like oily, sugary magic haha

You assume correctly. Rocky Mountain's trains have a zero / pilot car in the front. The twisted, off-kilter train makes for a fun photo op, they had the same setup with Twisted Colossus last year and Goliath the year before.
