The VP Bucket List
« on: July 08, 2014, 03:05:05 PM »
For the first on the list of crazy things we wouldn't normally consider but should do before we kick the bucket I give you Zumanjaro

30 seconds to climb and then drop 41 storeys in under 10 seconds at speeds of 90 mph?  eeek: HELL YEAH!!  :thumbsup:

Marley can stay on the ground and get the beers in for when we get off.  :thumbsup:
Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

To make you feel even better Apey, if Zumanjaro is on the list then Kingda Ka has to be as well seeing as Zumanjaro is built on to the side of the arch.   eveilgrin:

When the train is in position, the hydraulic launch mechanism accelerates the train from 0 to 128 miles per hour (0 to 206 km/h) in 3.5 seconds.[2] At the end of the launch track, the train climbs the main tower (or top hat) and rolls 90 degrees to the right before reaching a height of 456 feet (139 m).[3] The train then descends 418 feet (127 m) straight down through a 270-degree right-hand spiral. The train climbs the second hill of 129 feet (39 m), producing a moment of weightlessness before being smoothly brought to a stop by the magnetic brakes; it then makes a left-hand U-turn and enters the station. The ride lasts 28 seconds from the start of the launch

You wouldn't get Marley within 2 miles of those things - beers notwithstanding!

Work of the devil I tells ye . . .
"Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end." 

Well, someone had to say it!
