You think this ride is better than the Nitro. Are you kidding?

Sephiroth7 on 11/6/2001 1:02:13 AM said:

Hey cool said you said it was better than Nitro, not me...I figured you said it was...

uh i bet he was sacarastic and if he wasnt then he is a loser
DmctNY8 on 1/12/2002 7:52:59 PM said:
First off, I know this guy (Mojojojo13) he is not a loser. But he gave this a Ten and the Nirto a lower rating. He never expressly said, "This ride is better than Nitro."
HRDeath64 on 1/12/2002 8:18:25 PM said:
yeah....what awcool641 said.....i am also his friend too. but doesnt giving this ride a better rating than nitro literally mean that this ride is better than nitro?
DmctNY8 on 1/12/2002 8:28:57 PM said:
HRDeath uses an intelligant grading system. This site would be better if Shaw115 used it.
Sephiroth7 on 1/13/2002 4:02:10 AM said:
Not really Death. Some rides you cant compare to each other. At least in my rating system if I give Nitro a 9 and Playland Plunge a ten, it doesnt mean I liked Plunge better...
DmctNY8 on 1/13/2002 10:14:36 AM said:
A higher rating should mean that this is a better ride than Nirto. Lets say someone was going to decide what the best ride in the counrty was and looked at the ratings. If everyone gave this ride a 10 then it would be listed as being better than Nitro. But as everyone here knows this ride is not better than Nitro.

1/14/01 Update: Added word rating between A and Higher in the first sentence.
Sephiroth7 on 1/13/2002 3:48:01 PM said:
In theory you may be correct, but you can also look at it as a 1-10 rating for coasters, a 1-10 rating for flumes, 1-10 rating for shot rides, etc...I am not sayin both systems dont work, but you can really look at it either way...
DmctNY8 on 1/14/2002 2:55:47 PM said:
Yet, if you were looking for a great ride in New York, this 10 would mean you had found it. But then again this ride is probably not the best ride (or one of them).
Sephiroth7 on 1/14/2002 3:00:25 PM said:
True...but like I ALWAYS have said in the past, "Words have much more effect than numbers". So if you explain yourself well enough, you will know it is one of the best rides compared to your other reviews of the same type of ride...Either way, there are more ways to review rides than the two we mentioned. TOGO uses a completely different method than both of ours...do I think it works? No. But he explains himself well enough so that we know exactly what we felt about the ride, once again proving my statement about words over numbers...
DmctNY8 on 1/14/2002 10:41:47 PM said:
Yes, but the words in this review act like this very well may be the best ride in the world.
Sephiroth7 on 1/15/2002 9:34:55 AM said:
He seemed to really like the ride. He got soaked and he obviously likes chute the chutes. Even if he likes it better than Nitro, he never compares it in any way shape or form, so there is no use assuming. And if it is his favorite attraction, it is his opinion...
DmctNY8 on 1/18/2002 6:51:36 PM said:
I dont question it could be his own opinion but he gave the Nitro a 9 and this ride a 10. That should imply (especially if you look at the radio buttons for ride rating on the review page) this ride is better.
xDisney on 1/18/2002 7:28:26 PM said:
I have to agree with Seph. I tend to rate rides in a 1 to 10 scale by the type of ride. Examples..Steel, wood, invert, darkride etc, etc. Your favorite chute might get a 10. Its up to the reviewer.
DmctNY8 on 1/18/2002 11:20:00 PM said:
Yeah but that would be misleading to a common reader who wants to decide what park to go to based on rides. If they are casual about theme parks and found this site through www.google.com and wanted to use this site a resourse and beleived that this ride was better than Nitro becuase of reports on this ride. The only exception I think is approprite for this rule is in the case of kiddie coasters where it is appropriate to grade them differently if you clearly state that the ride, is infact a kiddie ride. Since we are getting no where in this argument why dont we agree to spend our time else where on this site (instead of bringing this thread to 100 posts).

stop making such a big deal
DmctNY8 on 7/13/2002 11:09:56 PM said:
Okay its 6 months later and we stopped making a big deal out of this, and mojojojoe13 is right next to me. LOL

The one thing I dont get is that this is not a chute the chutes ride, it is a splash down ride. There is a big difference. A chute the chutes ride has a dry track that actually make the boat skip along the water. It also has no guide rails in the water, so the boat is free to mve in any direction. I am not sure if there are any true chute the chutes rides left, would love to know.
mojojojo14 on 7/20/2002 9:41:18 PM said:
oh, thats very interesting, i was just stating that it was because I read it in a post on another site. I didnt know it was a Splash down ride, thanks for the correction.
DmctNY8 on 7/25/2002 11:48:58 PM said:
So you give a splash down ride a better review than a hyper coaster? LOL
DmctNY8 on 8/9/2002 11:02:24 PM said:
There is no way this ride is better than Nitro. I can now say this for sure because I rode it tonight.
