I personally love intamin rides. Although it is sad that the last one built in north america was back in 2012 (Skyrush). :(


Maverick at Cedar Point is my favorite Intamin even though I love B&M more for the smoothness and unique lap bars.
Vekoma is English means, "We don't have the budget for a B&M so let's just order a Vekoma."

The amount of newer Intamin and B&M coasters built in the past three years are virtually the same. The only difference is that the newer Intamin coasters are being built outside the United States.

Re: Elitch Gardens 2014 announcement "Brain Drain"

Postby Goliath513 » Sun Sep 07, 2014 5:49 pm

Just got back from the park with some pictures of Brain Drain. First off, let me say this ride far exceeded my expectations since my only prior ride like this was an old Ring of Fire carnival ride. This turned out to be a relaxing thrill ride with great hang time. Rode it three times today and the best ride I got was in one of the front rows. Elitch's did a great job brightening up this section of the park with the new ride. A huge improvement over the dilapidated Rainbow site here before.

looks nice, hopefully go across the rest of the cf water parks
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

This will be great for the water park and the big crowds all summer. I like how it extends the ride time of a bowl slide, which is already awesome on its own but over too soon. It will be built next to Tube Top and is replacing one of the pavilions. A new water slide should hold over the water park for a few years so the rides side can get some more attention.

Elitch is not a Cedar Fair park. It was sold off along with Wild Waves, Darien Lake and a few waterparks by Six Flags in 06 and is now managed by one of the old Six Flags/Premier executives
