05-03-2001, 03:44 PM
I'd definitly put MF in. I would also but a 300ft. turbo drop next to it so I could give my friends on MF high fives as they crest the lift hill.

05-03-2001, 03:53 PM
Every single one!!!!!

05-03-2001, 04:07 PM
Give me Millennium Force, Ghostrider, Raptor, and a really huge Space shot/Turbo Drop combo and I'd be set <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

05-03-2001, 04:07 PM
MF Ghostrider and Raptor
<BR>A nice variety of great coasters

05-03-2001, 04:09 PM
Obviously The Beast, and drop zone of course...

Me and VorTex just posted the exact same coasters (with the exception of the S&S combo, a great idea) at the exact same time. So somebody does have good taste in rollercoasters besides me.

05-03-2001, 04:25 PM
Goliath and Medusa west!!! Also, something new like a 4D. S:TE too.

Old Crow
05-03-2001, 04:41 PM
Because backyards are not 60+ acers, I would but in a steel mouse and a drop tower that go though the center of the mouse

05-03-2001, 05:07 PM
I'll limit it to my top three:
<BR>Millennium Force
<BR>Wildcat (Hersheypark)
<BR>Medusa West (Gotta have a good B&M!)

05-03-2001, 05:14 PM
Hrmm... Kraken (In case you haven't noticed, I loved this ride, Alpengeist, and Beast.

rolluh coastuh uv luv
05-03-2001, 05:21 PM
Actually, old crow, i have a 55 acre plot of land so i could build quite a nice coaster. I gotta tell ya, i would probably pick shivering tim, hulk, dueling d's, MF, and x-flight.

Xander Lee
05-03-2001, 05:24 PM
Lets see, I would probably put in Shivering Timbers, Titan, Gyro Drop, Talon, and just for the heck of it a FOF (no OSTR's) clone.

05-03-2001, 06:30 PM
They're are a multitude of coasters that are high contenders but I think that X would be my choice. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

05-03-2001, 06:38 PM
For mine, Drachen fire, tHE BIG BAD WOLF, VOLCANO, son of beast, the boss, flight of fear, twin dragons(ioa), kumba, dudley do right's ripshaw falls

05-03-2001, 06:56 PM
Personally, give me a MF with a series of Bunnyhops like SM:ROS at SFA, add a 250 foot loop after the hill and add the theaming of an IOA coaster. That's what I want!!

05-04-2001, 09:18 AM
Talon, Wildfire, and Nitro! None of which I've ridden, but they look SWEET! Oh yeah, and Ghostrider.

05-04-2001, 01:12 PM
I would love to have Gwazzi. Nothing better that a Woodie in the backyard.

05-04-2001, 01:14 PM
A portable dragon coaster...any other coaster would have to be in pieces.

05-04-2001, 01:15 PM
I hear BGW is looking for a buyer for Drachen Fire. I'd imagine that would be a nice addition to anyone's backyard.

05-04-2001, 02:55 PM
I will soon return to Dorney and steal Talon for my backyard. HaHa! I wish! If it's 1/2 as good as it looks I'll ride it the whole day.

05-04-2001, 04:24 PM
I know I haven't ridden it but I have heard NOTHING bad about Heide Park's Colossos(other than it's location way too far from me!!!) and wish I had it in my backyard!!!

05-04-2001, 11:00 PM
the flying unicorn is the only one that would fit...<IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif">

Alex Curavo
05-04-2001, 11:23 PM
Millennium Force, Raptor, Mantis, Apollo's Chariot, Loch Ness Monster, and a Vekoma Cliffhanger (when they are finally built in the US)

Nick D
05-04-2001, 11:31 PM
I would want Millie and Titan. I love hypers and though I haven't ridden Millie I know I will love it.

05-04-2001, 11:34 PM
I have Millenium Force in my basement!!!!
<BR>(I built a model for my senior project) I just wish I could enlarge it with that machine from "HONEY I BLEW UP THE KID". heheHEHEHE!!

05-05-2001, 05:15 PM
nitro, medusa, or roar!
<BR>anyone of those three would be great,
<BR>or even any b&m would probably make me happy

05-05-2001, 05:29 PM
I know it ain't a coaster, but the Power Tower and Cedar Point would be awesome! A 200 foot view, and two different ways to rider! Excellent!

05-05-2001, 05:44 PM
Well I would build a B&M inverted like Talon
<BR>A Hyper Woody by Intamin like Colosso
<BR>A 4d by Arrow like X and an Arrowbatic
<BR>A giga coaster with a twisting 90* drop by Intamin like the hyper Expedition G force
<BR>A giovannola hyper Tilt coaster.
<BR>LOL how much land do you think all that would need

05-05-2001, 06:08 PM
Wildcat @ Hershey Park.

Medusa Man
05-05-2001, 07:20 PM
You could put in Medusa west, MF, Goliath and Nitro. Also a huge 400ft. tall S&S towers freefall drop ride.

05-05-2001, 07:22 PM
Realistically, if I would have Power Tower because it is awesome and is the only ride that would fit. If my backyard were an amusement park it would have MF, Magnum, Raptor, Gemini, and Superman:ROS from SFNE.

05-05-2001, 07:31 PM
I WILL HAVE A NITRO , MF , SupermanUE, a 4d and a arrowbattic
<BR>o that will cost 100 million. I will pay u back hear is a 50

05-05-2001, 07:52 PM
Batman & Robin the chiller

05-05-2001, 08:17 PM
Millenium Force
<BR>Superman: Ultimate Escape
<BR>The Beast(Would fit perfectly in my woods!)

05-05-2001, 10:07 PM
i have about 20 acers in for my yard and since thats a decent size i would love a Deja vu or a 1St gearation racing freefall. so when i need my weekly medacine of adraline i dont gatta drive 40mins to get it. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

05-06-2001, 10:56 AM
I would put in an Euro-Mir running in and out of my house. I would probably put a Millenium Force, a Lightning Racer, and a Medusa West in my back yard maybe with........ crap I forget what its called but theres one in Florida operating at a mini-golf course

05-07-2001, 07:33 PM
i'd want:
<BR>a coney island cyCLONE (a blueprint of it)
<BR>a spiderman indoor theatre ride (i can dream)
<BR>and a new prototype that i saw on thrillride for the IAAPA 2000 meeting that has movable track and there is an onride poll going up the lifthill and you get to pick which of the 3 options you want to go. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

05-07-2001, 08:03 PM
I'm gonna Have to say a 400 foot TA2K a Top Gun from PGA and a Goliath from SFMM. Oh and a MF ofcourse after what everyone is saying about it

05-08-2001, 02:18 AM
I'd have to say a Raging Bull with a Deja Vu and then Zeus from Big Chief's in the Dells. Throw in a four or five level go-cart track and some laser tag and I'm set. Come to think of it, there's a good sixty acres for sale by my house...

05-08-2001, 03:32 AM
Hmmm, I would have my namesake placed as a centerpiece within my back yard, but I would ditch the horsecollar restraints for some FOF improvements and I would also beef it back up to its original number of inversions. After Drachen Fire, well any woodie would be nice. Beast, SOB....etc. I am not TOO picky. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

05-08-2001, 10:57 AM
I think I would have to have a hyper like Apollo's Chariot. Also gotta have a woodie. One with elements from Texas Giant, Shivering Timbers and the wooded surroundings of Raven and Legend.

05-08-2001, 11:30 AM
My coasters are:
<BR>Super ride of steel
<BR>MInd Eraser
<BR>Jokers Jinx
<BR>The Wild One
<BR>Batwing wich isint out yet
<BR>X wich isint out yet
<BR>Space Mountain
<BR>And my first coaster ever Jaguar
<BR>So in conclusion All of Them /happy

07-07-2001, 10:51 AM
I'd want Batman or Alpengeist and Apollos Charoit. I'd add an Acrophobia and corkscrew coaster like Drachen Fire. Of course I'd have a river rapids ride too where you spin around and all!

07-07-2001, 12:13 PM
MF, Steel Dragon 2000, Ghostrider, Alpengeist, Loch Ness, Apollo's CHariot, Drachen Fire, Hypersonic, Volcano, Flight of Fear, Hurler, and Drop Zone. I WISH

Raging Rider
07-07-2001, 01:02 PM

07-07-2001, 09:58 PM
We have an "island" that separates our driveway into a horseshoe. I would put a custom S&S Turbo Drop that is 450 feet high and a Space Shot that is 300 ft high on the island. In the backyard I would put a 300 foot tall Thrust Air if I used part of the driveway too. As you can see, I LOVE S&S <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif"> !

07-07-2001, 09:59 PM

Ioa Master
07-07-2001, 10:10 PM

07-07-2001, 10:56 PM
A Millennium Force would be nice. Now where is my spare $25 million.

07-07-2001, 10:59 PM
<BR> I would try to replicate Great Adventure in my back yard, i live on a huge field. Hey, it could happen.

07-07-2001, 11:11 PM
I would definatly go with a tall Thrust Air 2000.

07-07-2001, 11:54 PM
With no space limitations, DEFINITELY MILLENNIUM FORCE. A turbodrop/spaceshot combo (power tower) and prolly a TA2k. With no financial limits, the list goes on and on....

Kyle L
07-08-2001, 12:32 AM

HMMMMMMM...VERY hard question. Gimme a MF with bunnyhops from the RB and a 250 ft Air C Vert Drop with a GD in the middle of the Vert drop. Then gimme the space and the money. Oh yeah, a 2nd coaster to race alongside the first, free ORP's and a LS at 70MPH. Then, a S:TE at 500 FT. w/ 120MPH PLS.Plus an X to race up above the two. And you cant say no to a good suspended!
