Adorable granny rides roller coaster for the first time

THIS absolutely made my day!! Reminds me of the first and only time I took my Grandma to Disneyland and the reaction was the same as this video.

Wow! Even I was a bit skeptical of this list as being something that I didn't already have a knowledge about. I would say at least 90% of it is new to me. Great read. Anyone that chooses to check out the list, you have to click the left arrow to scroll the list. The right arrow just launches a new, unrelated topic. Go figure.

With my previous post, I was very much interested in digging up some archival footage of Old Disneyland and came across this monster of a find. Sure, I have seen a few time-lapse video here and there (the first being one that they actually showed at the park, one that I was when I was still in Elementary School). But THIS video is pure gold because you get to see each part of the park being built, from multiple angles as well as behind the scenes stuff. The icing on the cake is the commentary by Tony Baxter from Disney Imagineering, and Ed Hobbleman and Walter Magnuson from the Disney Studio Inventory Group. Loved some of the sweeping crane shots. Kinda odd to get something so majestic that you only see in big budget hollywood films.

Opening of World's Tallest Water Slide Delayed

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qy7-pjv_B44


You couldn't pay me to go on this and there is a very specific reason why based on the design. The part where you could actually slingshot over the hump is what's a bit unsettling. Now I don't know if the net that is above is cloth or steel, but think about that for a second. If it's cloth and you go headfirst into it, there is a real chance the net would eventually weaken and then break sending you shooting out and plummeting to your impending death. If it's steel, you could conceivably break your neck on impact.

Ninja roller coaster derails at Magic Mountain

I think the last time I was at Magic Mountain, it was for the unveiling of the Batman Ride. I can't remember the Ninja ride, but it does seem familiar though.

Roller Coaster Derails at California's Six Flags Magic Mountain

Seeing the Ninja Ride in action in the video, I absolutely remember it now!! I actually went on it quite a few times right when it opened and it was super fun. Can't say the ones hanging for 3 hours would agree with that for sure.

Evacuation of Transformer ride at Universal Studios Orlando

Breaking News as of 5 minutes ago on my local newscast. Riders stuck on the ride for the past hour. It could be worse, they could be forced to watch a Michael Bay movie instead.  ;D

Colossus Roller Coaster Fire (Magic Mountain)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGaU9Ul-20s

Bummer. I've always liked this particular coaster myself. I hope there isn't any structural damage that permanently closed this. It seems it was contained at the highest point. I would think this is fixable. This happened earlier today.
