For Diamondback, I don't like the new trains. The forces as you say Doug are different from front to back. I was in the middle, I didn't get the great airtime like you did, and that's because the train is so darn big. The smaller the train, the better it is. Also, you can't pick your row. What's so wrong with Goliath at SFOG? Were people complaining I can't see what's coming next? Give me a break.
I ride Batman the Ride in the second row, and I can basically see everything they are seeing in the front row, but yet they are waiting 15 minutes more for really no reason.
Another great guest! That Paul Ruben's a madman (meant in the best possible light. I hope I'm still rocking coasters when I get to be his current age.
That's some ride total. Thanks for coaxing Ruben to give up his top 3 steel coasters, but that left me in suspense. How about the rest of his top 10, wood and steel? I don't usually care for lists in media - they are intellectually lazy, low-hung fruit - but for this I'd like an exception.
^Thanx for the kind words PAL! I agree about the overall media's "top 10 List"- their experiences are usually nothing close to what I believe and love in a coaster (which doesn't say much since I pretty much love every coaster except CGA's Grizzly). However, Paul is such an experienced coaster veteran that I find his excitement captivating; I too would love to know more of his favorites. Maybe down the road we'll hear about the rest of his "Best Of List." _________________ Doug Barnes

There is a Chinese proverb. “…single conversation with a wise man is better than ten years of study." A very impressive interview with Mr. Paul Ruben. He’s definitely one to listen too. I just got my digital In-park magazine. I was also able to transfer it to my iphone using the pdf app. So, I can read it on the go. This is a cool magazine. I looking forward to more issues. I have to say the best motto from the show that Mr. Ruben said “Go with gravity”. That so cool!
