Very cool! He must have recorded a bunch of different intros. I just saw one for Orlando Attractions Magazine as well.

But still a nice touch and REALLY thoughtful to reach out to the fanboys/fangirls community!

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

That's awesome! :b

Have you ever gotten one of these before?



My guess is, a Wingrider, where you ride facing down, like your running on all fours :lol: . Man wouldn't that be something.

Way cool that he did that for the community. What a great way to reach out to the community and give them something unique like this. Well done, BGT! Looking forward to more of these!

That's what I figured. But what a GREAT IDEA for such a personalized video. I mean, I totally understand that in theory it's quite simple - create one main video with multiple intros, but actually putting that idea into action and making it happen is not always as easy as it seems. I give a ton of props to BGT's PR dept for putting that together. I felt it was very well done and speaks to the kind of things that park PR departments SHOULD be doing.

Yeah, props to Jim Dean for that video. To be honest though, this doesn't need a ton of teasers, hints, etc. The simple mention of BGT+ new coaster = automatic interest. :-D

I had sex with N-Tag before you did.

Since I work in the field of video production for a major corporation (no, not any theme parks) this is flat out awesome. I've already forwarded the video to people here to show how social media videos can be useful!

I think Jill and the gang down at BGT have a home run on the video here! Holy After Effects!
Beer... It helps coasters go higher and faster!
