Cool...can the build one in the states too :-)
2002-03-20 01:45:44 PM  
10 loops? Does this relate to the Froot Loop story?

2002-03-20 01:46:50 PM  
I bet Mike has something to do with this link.
2002-03-20 01:47:04 PM  
one word "puke"
2002-03-20 01:48:05 PM  
i like at lest 294378738766893 loop roller coasters
2002-03-20 01:48:17 PM  
What was that roller coaster is Edmonton that decapitated some people a while back?

That is, of course, if you know where Edmonton is.
2002-03-20 01:48:56 PM  
DUDE! They are cheating!! Twists shouldn't count as loops!!!
how lame!
2002-03-20 01:49:14 PM  
Only 100 tall? only 65km/hour? lame
2002-03-20 01:50:11 PM  
Anyone else get that tingly sensation in their nuts when going down a steep rollercoater?

All my friends think I'm crazy.
2002-03-20 01:50:25 PM  
So if you blink do you suddenly move 50 feet down the track like the Shockwave?
2002-03-20 01:50:36 PM  
The Loch Ness Monster in Virginia and The Beast in Cincy...two of the best roller coasters ever...
2002-03-20 01:51:19 PM  
I thought it was pretty lame, then I tried the "fog" setting and OH MY farkING GOD THAT WAS COOL!

2002-03-20 01:52:16 PM  
Whoever list scary is a wus. Cool is more like it.
2002-03-20 01:53:02 PM  
Messy I get that feeling all over when riding a roller coaster. I alsoo get it when I have to shiat real bad.
2002-03-20 01:53:47 PM  
I agree about The Beast! That was awesome!
2002-03-20 01:54:22 PM  
Link farked. But the best ride I've been on in a while was the Millinum Force over at Cedar Point....Holy shiat damn near peed myself on that damn thing.
2002-03-20 01:55:11 PM  
Messy Yup, my balls tingle too when I ride a rolly coaster. As a matter of fact, they are all tingly right now just thinking about it.
2002-03-20 01:55:50 PM  
I can't feel my virtual legs!
2002-03-20 01:55:52 PM  
I only get it when I go on the circly rides (puke)...
2002-03-20 01:55:59 PM  
must spell check.......

Anyhow, the "Fire and Ice" at Universal in orlando is pretty darn good too.
2002-03-20 01:56:34 PM  
10 loops is pushing it
1 loop
9 "rolls"

still looks like fun
2002-03-20 01:56:48 PM  
What's the deal with the inside roller coasters that basically just shake you with a cheap rickety track and then blow air at you to make it feel like you're going really fast?

Loch Ness Monster #1
Scooby Doo #2

I need one of those
2002-03-20 01:57:28 PM  
That looks like a fun Coaster.
You'll NEVER get me on it shy of a few grand in bribe money.
2002-03-20 01:57:49 PM  
The Hulk in Orlando is a good coaster. Dueling Dragons is okay too. Puke factor: 3 out of 5 barf bags.
2002-03-20 01:57:55 PM  
Riding in a Yugo on the freeway above 35 m.p.h. is way scarier
2002-03-20 01:58:19 PM  
Wooden or steel

2002-03-20 01:59:59 PM  
2 Words--- "Piss shivers"
2002-03-20 02:00:20 PM  
steel : smoother & greater potential for vertigo & subsequent regurgitation
wood : rougher & greater potential for headache, then regurgitation
2002-03-20 02:00:38 PM  
10 loops would create too high a nausea rating and nobody would ride it. Geez, don't these people play Roller Coaster Tycoon?
2002-03-20 02:01:38 PM  
I only counted 8, whatever.
2002-03-20 02:01:50 PM  
I knew a girl who was kind of loopy and I would sometimes puke after riding her.
2002-03-20 02:02:40 PM  
I gotta reboot to install the shockwave player? Maybe later.
2002-03-20 02:03:05 PM  
hahaha meshman, they should make their test on roller coaster tycoon lol
2002-03-20 02:03:06 PM  
Oh dear lord, I've got a roll of roliads in my pants. *glarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrg*
2002-03-20 02:03:35 PM  
I just virtually barfed.

I liked the coaster in that hillbilly's back yard, the one with the car seat. THAT was scary.
2002-03-20 02:05:09 PM  
Anyone ever been on 'Le Monstre' at La Ronde in Montreal?
2002-03-20 02:07:27 PM  
Messy - I only get that feeling when I climb the rope in gym class.
2002-03-20 02:08:27 PM  
I just saw this, and some reason, it reminded me of fark.

2002-03-20 02:09:30 PM  
Now this looks SCARY
2002-03-20 02:10:12 PM  
Damn. I'm too virtually short!
2002-03-20 02:10:29 PM  
Important Safety tip:

When riding Millenium Force at Cedar Point after dark, avoid the front row. Those mosquitos suck at 90 MPH.

Also, the web site for that park has a video of the whole ride. And you dont need Flash to see it. Well worth the 3 hour wait each time (at the park, not on the web site)
2002-03-20 02:10:44 PM  
goober: *lol*
2002-03-20 02:11:04 PM  
and now the picture that goes with
"Now this looks SCARY"

Puckhead - I'd have to agree with you on the "Hillbilly Death Coaster." Scary.
