I live next to an interstate, directly under the main flight path for Cleveland-Hopkins Airport, AND have train tracks about 500 feet from my house. I guarantee that people can learn to deal with the noise. And if they can't, they need to move somewhere else. Like the middle of Nebraska, where it is quiet and empty. Their obnoxiousness cannot bother me there.

500 feet? Try 50 feet. Go onto Google Maps and search up Linden, PA. There are houses within 50 feet of railroad tracks, on a street called Front Street. Those people don't complain, they've gotten used to it.
I have a friend that lives in the house across the street from Michigan's Adventure and the biggest complaint he had was that the parking lot lights stayed on way too late. So to make up for it he started letting people park in his huge yard for cheaper.
2003-2004 - Michigan's Adventure (Games, Shivering Timbers ATL, Wolverine Wildcat, Timber Town Railway) 2005-2009, 2011, 2012 - Cedar Point (Magnum XL-200, Top Thrill Dragster, Thunder Canyon TL, Maverick TL, CP&LE Engine House)
So... [though processing] Screamscape is now reporting the rumor and has the "plans" of a Mack multi-launch coaster for 2012 at Seaworld Sna Diego. It has been rumored that a GERMAN built coaster would represent the new BGW2012 coaster. Is it more likely that it will be a Mack though BGT is already building an Intamin and Busch is notorious for building similar coaster at the Busch Gardens parks (ex. for the n00bs: Alpinegeist, Montu/ Sheikra, Griffon/ and several attempts to build similar coaster or coasters by the same manufacturer: Drachen Fire, Kumba/ Python, Loch Ness Monster/ Scorpion, Big Bad Wolf/ and only once did they build coasters the same period that were totally different: Apollo's Chariot, Gwazi) Though the two coasters at the BG parks will be similar in format, it now seems more likely that Mack will be coming to BGW. The layout of "Manta2" at SWSD looks like version of what we will see at BGW.
^I'm not Robb but I think he and I shared a very simiar opinion on Blue Fire.
First off, the restraints and train are AMAZING. All looping coasters should have these restraints, incredible! Big step up from the Premier Lap Bar Only coasters.
The little preshow on the coaster was very cute and interesting (similar to Furius Baco!), but then the ride itself though was quite slow and had no big forces to it. I would assume that Sea World will go for a very similar ride with little force and a cute preshow to keep the family friendly aspect and that's fine, but don't go expecting a powerful awesome looping launched coaster.
