Well I think Shapiro's attitude towards the race is dead on, imo, who cares? The park experience should have a focus on quality as appose to the quantity. What good is 17 roller coasters if half of them are broken or suck anyways? This means that they don't have to staff the park with so many people, nor do they have to waste any fraction of the maintnance budget on the attraction.

Your right about that. ;) It's better to have just 3 rollercoasters, but their damn good, instead of having 20 rollercoasters but 15 of them sucks. They still got X though! :br Ow BTW, I forgot to say that Psyclone has the only wooden roller coaster trains ever built by B&M. Each train weighs 5000 lbs! That's why it's rough I think. :)

There is no one reason that Psyclone sucks...its best just to say everything about it contributes to its rough ride.

I am glad that they are going, it is a step in the right direction but for some reason it feels weird. I think it's the fact that I grew up with the park already having those rides and so the park's state during my first visit seemed permanent...as if they would never leave. Also, this is a new thing for me to see...instead of a ride addition its a ride subtraction.

Psyclone should not be dismantled it should be blown up with lots and lots of explosives! It caused a lot of people a lot of pain so it is only fitting to take it down in such a destructfull manner. Not gingerly take it apart piece by piece but drop some bombs on it-that'll get the job done!

Yeah and it would look really cool. That thing angers me and it deserves to be blown up, nothing less.

Psyclone was great before the 94 earthquake - especially in the rain.

Just because someone doesn't like it, they want it "torched" or destroyed "wrecking ball style"...if they actually did that, it would definetly scare people away thinking wtf? if it were your favorite coaster coming down, you'd be saying I hope they use plenty of comforters and gently take it apart for another to use. =) oh please.


ok, now that i got that out...


What the hell are you talking about?

In terms of Psyclone, I think they should implode it just like they do to old casinos in Vegas. If they did it like they did to the Dunes, that would be sweet.

Step 1. Place bags of Jet fuel in various places around the structure.

Step 2. Place Explosives Under the lift hill and various turn-arounds.

Step 3. Ignite all bags of Jet fuel at the same time.

Step 4. Press da big red button to set off ze explosives.

Step 5. Bye Bye Psyclone! Celebrate by roasting marshmallows in the resulting fire. Its a bonus if Deja Vu melts too. :devil: Just kidding.

Step 6. Take both trains up to the top of the tower, fill with more explosives, ignite and launch the now-missiles at Psyclone's station.
