NEVERLAND [70 icons]

All icons are made from real images of Michael Jackson's Neverland estate. I worked to preserve a sense of magic, sparkle, and mystery. Many of the artifacts & rides were modeled after or custom-made by the creations and creators of the original Disneyland.

Countless sick children were taken to enjoy the popstar's playground paradise free of charge; a state-of-the-art radiation center was even furbished into the basement, so that cancer patients would not have to miss a single treatment in order to visit; beds and special rooms with clear walls were installed into the movie theaters to accommodate those bedridden. Marlon Brando was known to be personally chauffeured around by Mr. Jackson, in decorated golf-carts, to cheer up the aged actor.

The world can be a better place, Michael proved that.

It was a very crowded and hot day, but surprisingly, lines were not that bad. Kingda Ka for example i got on after just 30 minutes. Unfortunately lots of the big coaster were sputtering throughout the day, Nitro was down for much of the morning, and El Toro was running empty trains most of the day. Eventually Nitro was up and running, and i got on in about 45 minutes. All i can say is AMAZING! Nonstop ejector airtime, nearly constant negative Gs all the way until the very last bunny hop into the brakerun. I rode in the back of course, and can't even describe how intense the airtime was on this coaster! Enjoy the pics!

Norton Auctioneers says Cedar Fair offered the coaster to A.C.E. Cedar Fair says Norton Auctioneers offered the coaster to A.C.E. Everyone I've talked to from A.C.E. restoration says they never heard word one till the day before. Anyway Carole Sanderson says false and so do I.

Coaster in a sheep farm?

So, a while back I saw on one of the Discovery Channel specials that there is a wooden coaster somewhere in Europe (Wales? Ireland?) that was built on a sheep farm as a form of income. The sheep wander freely around the coaster, and at the time of the special it was ranked pretty highly. Anyone know the name of this coaster or where it is? If it still exists?

EDIT: I figure I may as well use this as an intro post. :) I've been a coaster enthusiast for years (though not a card carrying member, I'm saving up for that this year!). Coasters I've ridden and parks I've been to are on my Coaster Fanatics profile, but the highlights are: 43 coasters, 8 parks. I live a stone's throw away from SFOT, but I haven't been in a few years so I have yet to ride the new Tony Hawk's Big Spin.

The first coaster I ever rode was Texas Giant, and I didn't get on any roller coasters for several years after that! Once I got into it, though, I was hooked. Luckily, my mom developed a love of coasters about the same time I did, so we rode everything at our Six Flags, then traveled to every SF park in the state (including the now defunct Astroworld in Houston), we've been to Disney World, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, and we make a yearly trek up to Cedar Point (by far my favorite park)!
