I was wondering, have any of you guys made a wild rumor/random note for Thrillride? I sent one in, and Rob is gonna post it next update(it's about the height limit in Florida).

I do not send them in as much as I used to to me though out of all the rumors I have sent in the one thing missing is a whopper of the week I finnally gave up besides it was not right to try to get that honor and I have changed my evil ways.

you can always tell which parks are actually gonna get sumtin because of the rate of rumors, usually the ones with w/ more rumors are wishful thinking, but park that are gonna get sumtin are more careul about stopping rumors..

I've only sent in one. It wasn't a rumor, but a backing up of a truth from someone else's rumor/news to help give it some backing.

Because I have eyes riddler. I can at least back up whether or not I saw land clearing. I don't do stuff like saying they are getting a giga coaster in a space clearing the size of a carousel. Let everyone else speculate what will be there, thats what its for, but seeing land clearing is seeing land clearing, thousands of park goers would see it if they were the least bit interested in tree removal.

I did a few years ago, but it was a random note and not a wild rumour. It concerned Millenium Force and it was just a note on the track, which then was sitting in the parking lot along with the machinery. The cable drum which contained all the cable for the ride was huge, biggest drum I'd ever seen. Also saw some stuff on the machinery which I noted.

I had a few good, juicy rumors when I was working for some parks but I don't get the scoop much anymore.

Kraken whats your rumor about Orlando's height limit? Personally I dont think people know what there talking about when they say its 200ft. Know one knows for sure. Also how can it only be 200ft when Sea Worlds Sky Tower is 400ft.
