Serves them right for shooting illegal POVs everywhere they go.


I think Bojangles' Famous Chicken 'n Biscuits's videos are taken with permission. Notice they don't put their cameras down when the On-Ride photo comes up and they take the POV videos in the stations, unlike the other illegal videos.

The stupid part is in bold

My vote goes to anything and everything Arrow. They just seem to be too much of maintenance nightmares as time goes on, and aren't necessarily as popular as they used to be. Now, coasters like Magnum, Gemini, and X2 will probably stay for a while, but with coasters like BBW, GASM, and Eagle's Fortress being removed, and Kennywood re-doing phantom's first drop, nothing Arrow is safe, in my opinion.

^And why is that a stupid comment. A lot of Arrow rides have been removed in recent years, whether it be the end of their lifecycle, high maintenance costs or difficulty in finding parts.

Or is your post the "stupid" one because of your reading comprehension problems in thinking the poster is saying that Arrow rides are unsafe?

^^I had to read it twice myself, but look at the context a little closer. Larry pretty much summed it up, FeelTheFORCE meant no Arrow is safe from the demolition trend.

^^^No Arrow is safe from demolition, not being unsafe in general.

It's kind of like how I refuse to ride kiddie coasters, like the ones where the ride op has to stop it themselves and you have to have a little kid to ride. They are credits but I don't really count them because I'm not a kid height anymore.

Comment on how much it cost to run V2 at SFGAm.

liftsifter wrote:^ Nope, don't know that. In fact, not sure if Six Flags themselves even have an accurate number on that. I'd say a dollar a launch is reasonable.

This is inexcusable even by GP standards. I would assume that there's a general consensus for what a 'wooden roller coaster' is: Chain lift hill, PTC cars, a fairly spread-out layout, and no inversions. Flight of Fear has none of these elements. I would love to have heard the thought process that led them to conclude that a coaster that launches you from a standstill into 4 inversions and an incredibly twisted layout (all in a building not much bigger than a McDonald's PlayPlace) is made of wood.
