    Can anyone spot the wrongness?

    So....take a look at this video. Turn down your sound if you don't want to listen to annoying music.

    Right off the bat. Top Fuel. Ha.

    And, and, and they put the B&M floorless Bizarro in when I clearly knew it was the SFNE one to place and that train is featured later.

    Well there is actually 3 things wrong with it that I don't think everyone picked up on.
    1. Phantom's Revenge does not go 85 'mpg'. If it did, I think Exxon would even be impressed.
    2. bigFM Expedition GeForce does not have a 184 foot drop when the lift is only like 174 feet. And trust me it doesn't go below that height when it drops either.
    3. Lastly was the most obvious and that is Bizarro. They showed the wrong one at first. They showed Bizarro at SFGADV and then showed the one at SFNE, two totally different coasters.

    I would also argue making Millenium Force #1 in the world is wrong. But I guess that is debatable....
    My hardest earned credit is The Legend at Holiday World, first ridden 5.19.2012, exactly 1399 days after my first visit to Holiday World.
    Next up: Beech Bend/Kentucky Kingdom/Kings Island/Cedar Point

    lol It is the same price to ship a package here as it is to any state in the United States.

    Yeah... but my cousins in the Air Force (Japan and even Turkey one year) say sending to APO/FPO addresses is the world's most reliable thing.
