I'm in the minority on Magnum. I flippin' love it. I'm not big into rough coasters, but I can't get enough of it. I could ride ejector seat for hours at a time and never get off. Actually, I would probably have a headache eventually, but that's just because it takes all of nothing to give me a headache.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

I'm suprised El Toro is STILL the only one of its kind in the US. I know by 2012 someone is going to have another Intamin Woodie and I bet it'll be Cedar Point...or they'll just re-locate SOB to Cedar Point. :lmao:

^I'm surprised by this fact as well, but I agree that CP is the most probable candidate for the next PnP in the US. In addition, if they wanted to offset the sting from Shoot the Rapids, they'd wait until AT LEAST 2012 to add another ride. Yea, they had back-to-back rides before, but steel prices were lower then and the economy was alot stronger.

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

^That was nice. Stuff like that should be done more occassionally at the parks. I mean yeah it's a little weird but hey, its something fun to do. Now I want one done for all the different departments, like a battle which they have done in the past, for example at KBF.

I don't know the difference between waist and waste.

The first bits of steel have started to go up along with parts of the lift. Right now they're working on getting the rest of the ride up along with building the concrete flume part of the ride.
