Re: Chess Coaster on Kingda Ka

Strange, I've heard and seen proof of people bringing video cameras on the ride and not getting in trouble...but maybe the rules have changed. Does anyone know *when* they take the picture? Because if it's around the second hill, that probably isn't so bad, but the first one would be nigh-impossible.

Chess Coaster on Kingda Ka

Simply put, is it feasible? Some friends and I were thinking of it, except we probably won't do chess. Any recommendations or advice from people who've either tried playing something on a roller coaster or have ridden Kingda Ka? It doesn't have to be that one in particular, but we figure if you're g...

You get a nifty piece of music for the ace though, so it's good to go through it once more without triggering that. The cover part is a pain, though. Also, I tried that, and it seems to turn the AI on and off; when I shot the creature, it started moving around, when it had stayed stationary before. :?
