Re: Official Hurler Topic
I think they should take out all the wooden coasters and replace them with either a GCI woodie or a steel coaster.

Haha, I knew somebody was going to do that. :lol: But I am being serious, I don't like riding wooden coasters, unless i'm in the front row.

I had the restraint unlock on grizzly in between the station & lift last season.

Re: Official Hurler Topic
^A possible explanation for that is that the restraint was locked too far down. If you have the restraint locked down as far as possible, there's more force pushing back on the restraint, which can cause it to pop up to next lock or "click". I've had this happen to me on Rebel Yell a few years back, and I later realized that that was what had happened.

Next time I ride it, if I ride it, i'm not going to push it down as far. Thanks for the tip.

Re: Official Hurler Topic
I just rode it, and the lap bar popped open going around the turn just before the drop. I reported it to the ride ops, and it is being checked out now. That was not a fun ride.

My shrink did some reverse psychology on me, so I charged him $50 an hour.

That same thing happened to me. I won't ride it again.

Sounds like they just need to get rid of those PTC trains and put in some Millennium Flyers or Timberliners. When I was on Hurler on the 15th, riding in the back row, the lap bar came down so tight that it was very uncomfortable.

I'm redesigning all of the Coaster Crew Network sites throughout the spring. Please help me out by answering surveys and polls on our Coaster Crew Network News board!

My top steel coasters: 1. Top Thrill Dragster | 2. Manta (SWO) | 3. Montu | 4. SheiKra | 5. Volcano ... My top wooden coaster: El Toro (SFGAdv).

As much as I love Hurler, I think it's time for it to go. Sad

Is 18 seasons long enough? Haha. Where Hurler is would make the perfect location for our next big coaster...

I'm not sure if there is enough room for a big coaster there, but more room can be made. Big Grin

Can't we take out Grizzly before Hurler? Hurler kicks Grizzlys you know what.
