They didn't tell us the name of the show, someone mentioned Extreme thrill rides but I don't know for sure if that's right. We were at Apollo from 6 am until about 10 or so. They did Alpengeist on Friday. They are actually doing numerous parks over the next several weekends.
General News - (4/24/12) The Travel Channel will be showing off a couple of new shows this summer of interest to theme park fans. One is called Xtreme Waterparks and it will premier Sunday, July 8th at 8pm (EST/PST) as they seek out the world’s most over the top water slides.
The other is called Insane Coaster Wars, which will also premier on Sunday, July 8th at 9pm (EST/PST), in a series that not only seeks out the best coasters, but invites thrill seekers to vote in an interactive online poll to vote for their favorite coasters in each episode. The finale episode of the season will count down the Top 10 coasters from the season with the most votes.
Site is now up where you can vote on the coasters...
Episode one will feature Apollo's Chariot in one catagory and Alpengiest in another catagory
VOTE for them!!!!!
Man the rides they chose to be in G-Force is a bit of a joke. I don't mind Afterburn being in there but Medusa and Sheikra are confusing picks for a High G-Forces category. Afterburn also would've made a great pick for Hang 'em High over Aftershock.
I'm interested in Voyage vs. El Toro and how they're going to determine that outcome, Thunderhead and Beast are not going to win.
