Sure why not?? It looks like it could be fun... or at least one way to kill some time! :lol:

1. What is the name of your home park?
Don't have one! If I have to say something it will have to be Tusenfryd since it's the only park in Norway catering to thrill seekers, but it's 300 miles away.

2. Do you own a coaster related T-shirt?
No! I had a Thundercoaster T-shirt once, but that's many years ago. That's the only coaster T-shirt I've ever had.

3. Do you enjoy Vekoma SLCs?
I liked the first one I rode which was Tizona at Terra Mitica back in 2003. But that was on a brand new ride and my coaster count was around 10 at that point. My last ride on a SLC (El Condor @ Walibi Holland last year) was f**king terrible!

4. Name the first 3 coasters that come to mind.
Balder
Speedmonster
Lisebergbanan

5. One park you would definitely never go back to is...
Since my park count is not that high, I don't think I've been to a park that I would never go back to.

6. Have you ever ridden a drop tower taller than 200 feet?
YES! Fritt Fall @ Gröna Lund, AtmosFear @ Liseberg and Falcons Fury @ BGT.

7. What is your favorite roller coaster?
El Toro @SFGADV

8. When you go to a park three things you must have with you are...
Ummm... phone, wallet and myself??

9. How many times did you visit your home park last season?
Going with Tusenfryd, I visited once last year. I wasn't planning on visiting it all until I learned that some fellow TPR members would be in the area around the same time as me, so I decided to go (Thanks Bryan). I probably average one visit every second year.

10. The first Intamin coaster you rode is...
Kanonen @ Liseberg

11. Have you ever spent an entire day at a park alone?
Yes, Kolmården (well almost the entire day) and Walibi Holland last year, and Magic Kingdom in 2015.

12. The independent park you go to the most is...
Liseberg

13. Does B&M or Intamin make better hyper coasters?
I have only ridden one of each (Nitro and S:ROS @ SFNE) back in 2008, and I actually enjoyed Nitro the most on that trip, Not really sure if it was the better ride, but I just had these insane expectations for S:ROS and was a bit let down by a ride that felt like it was running a bit sluggish compared to how I thought it would be.

14. If it was free, what upcharge ride what you jump on right now?
Probably one of those slingshot rides.

15. What is the best food at your home park?
I've yet to have anything that I would call good food at Tusenfryd.

16. The name of the worst GCI you've ridden is...
Gwazi

17. When you're not riding something at your home park where are you?
Probably on the viewing platform along the launch on Speedmonster. (if we're talking about where in the park)

18. Favorite water ride in a dry park (flume, rapids, etc)
Splash Mountain @ WDW

19. Do you get your photo taken with park mascots?
No (assuming we're keeping this seperate from character meet'n greets at parks like Disney and Universal)

20. Name one personal item you've lost at a park.
Never lost anything.

21. Name of the worst B&M invert you're ridden is...
Haven't been on any bad ones, but Nemesis Inferno was probably the least good.

22. Name your favorite steel coaster under 125 feet tall.
Probably Piraten... too lazy to check the height of all the steel coasters I've ridden.

23. Name your favorite coaster/ride manufacturer?
Intamin

24. What waterpark have you visited most often?
Don't think I've been to any more than once...

25. The name of the fastest wooden coaster you have ridden is...
El Toro @ SFGADV

26. What is the name of the flat ride you've ridden the most?
Spinspider @Tusenfryd

27. Name a ride-related injury you have suffered.
On Hullámvasút, the scenic railway in Vidampark in Hungary, I knocked my elbow on the supporting structure while trying to take a picture when going through the turn between the station and the lift. Just a small scratch and a few drops of blood though, nothing serious.

28. Favorite Halloween event at a park?
Never been to any

29. Name the most recent Arrow ride or coaster you've been on...
Flume Ride, the Arrow log flume at Liseberg, in 2015.

30. Name of your favorite ride that never leaves the ground (safari, train, bumper cars, etc)
The safari @ Animal Kingdom is great. I also really liked the train ride at Wiener Prater.

31. What ride makes you laugh the most?
Mechanica @ Liseberg. I had no idea what to expect and it left me laughing hysterically through the entire ride.

32. How many RMC's have you ridden?
One (Wildfire last year)

33. Best flat that goes over 100 feet is...
Spinspider @ Tusenfryd

34. When you are on your way to your home park what is one worry that you might have?
For Tusenfryd I worry that the park operations will be terrible... which they usually are!

35. Favorite park that is NOT your home park is ___________.
Tough one! Magic Kingdom is probably the park I could spend the most time at without doing anything, but for the coasters I think I have to go for Busch Gardens Tampa.

36. How many different parks did you go to last season?
Three (Walibi Holland, Kolmården and Tusenfryd)

37. The indoor coaster/dark ride you ride most often is...
Cannot answer since I ride these type of rides so rarely.

38. When you spend the day at the park what do you drink all day?
I'm a beer lover, but at parks I drink mostly Coca-Cola.

39. The name of the best B&M you've ridden is?

A St. Louis Cardinals hat. I actually lost it twice. The first time was at Kentucky Kingdom's log flume in 2015. I wasn't allowed to bring it on the platform, so I set it down on a nearby bench and another park guest picked it up, mistaking it for hers (that area is pretty heavily Cardinals territory).

My turn to belly up to the geek bar...


1. What is the name of your home park? Midway Park – a small state park that I visit like never – other than to do community service for my job (clean it up in the spring)

2. Do you own a coaster related T-shirt? No coaster shirts, but a couple of vintage park shirts (CP, Epcot Center, Kings Dominion and Canada's Wonderland)

3. Do you enjoy Vekoma SLCs? Sure...and I also enjoy having my n%ts stepped on by a dominatrix

4. Name the first 3 coasters that come to mind. Maverick, MF and Whatever Streak

5. One park you would definitely never go back to is... Geauga Lake

6. Have you ever ridden a drop tower taller than 200 feet? The ones at CP, KI and KD

7. What is your favorite roller coaster? Maverick/El Toro (tie)

8. When you go to a park three things you must have with you are...Wallet, keys and camera

9. How many times did you visit your home park last season? Once - for spring clean up. My team members got to ride the train while I was hauling leaves...BOOOOO!!!!!

10. The first Intamin coaster you rode is... I have not a clue

11. Have you ever spent an entire day at a park alone? Yes, Geauga Lake - the season that it closed

12. The independent park you go to the most is...Waldameer (although it should be Knoebels)

13. Does B&M or Intamin make better hyper coasters? That's a tough one, but I'd have to go with Intamin for Ride of Steel, Superman (or whatever the f&ck they're calling it this year) at SFNE & Skyrush.

14. If it was free, what upcharge ride what you jump on right now? That Sky Scraper deal that they used to have at Challenge Park at CP. Looked cool but never rode it

15. What is the best food at your home park? I don't even think that they serve food. I pretty much consider CP to be my “home park” so there I would say the old Happy Friar fries topped with cheese

16. The name of the worst GCI you've ridden is... I had to Google this because I wouldn't know a GCI from a CCI or Dinn...I'll go with Gwazi because it really lived up to the hyped-up POS everyone on here said it was

18. Favorite water ride in a dry park (flume, rapids, etc) The flume and rapids rides at Island of Adventure - Popeye & Dudley

19. Do you get your photo taken with park mascots? Peppermint Patty at Cedar Point – because you know...lesbian

26. What is the name of the flat ride you've ridden the most? Total lifetime would probably be the Tilt A Whirl

27. Name a ride-related injury you have suffered. Just black and blue marks from restraints. I also bashed my shin on that f%cking bar on the front seat of Gatekeeper last year. Also thought I punctured my lung or cracked a rib on SOB, but I lived

28. Favorite Halloween event at a park? Conneaut Lake - because it is so deliciously ghetto

29. Name the most recent Arrow ride or coaster you've been on...I think it was Anaconda at KD

30. Name of your favorite ride that never leaves the ground (safari, train, bumper cars, etc) Skooters at Knoebels – hands down
