I hate people that compare things



Well i think with the 2 rides opening so close to each other in time, looking so simular (buildings etc) then there will be a lot of people making comparisons.

Hate is such a strong word isnt it? :roll:

OMG just looking around on the net i came across this, When top thrill dragster launches it needs to be between 119 MPH and 121 MPH. On this fine day in 2005 it didnt get enough momentum to make it over the crest. Naturally one would think that it would then roll back, NOPE! The bugger got stuck ri...

I dont fear roller coaster BUT i do suffer from panic attacks, these panic atacks are brought on by stress or adrenalin (my body sees it as a fight or flight and this sets off a panic attack my body cant see the difference between the adrenalin from being scared and the adrenalin from being excited)...

It will have music blarring out, it will be speeding, it will be suped up with a body kit and the cars will have red neons underneath it. LMAO and wouldnt it fit in well there! One question though how w...

Evidently, seeing as they're using a picture of rita behind the words project stealth. I presume they did the theming for Rita as well but cant find anything on their site. This may be a silly question but were Ritas cars red before the design was put on? (dont know if the covering on the cars is b...

Hey wouldnt it be fab if the special treat was that they will open the park for a few hours so we can watch them testing the ride (before the opening in march)

I would be there like a shot!

So what do we rekon is the special treat? I hope it isnt just a crappy discount voucher or something like that

It creates the hap hazard look, but if they are really going to call it The edge dont you think the themeing is wrong? The Edge creates a clean cut, futuristc feel (to me anyway) and the fencing just isnt as clean cut as the name portrais. No-one has ever said it will be called "The Edge". That was...
