The ARN&R Curse Strikes Again

Okay, we don't actually remember it striking before. But mere days after our noting the amusement park in honor of Saparmurat Niyazov, the President for Life of Turkmenistan, he died.

We can only hope that they rename the park in honor of acting head of state Deputy Prime Minister Gurbanguly Berdymukhammedov.

And no, we did not make up that name or add any random consonants. Or vowels.

Incidentally, IAAPA reportedly declared Niyazov's death to be caused by rider error.

    This was one of the most tasteless articles they've ever done. Not quite as bad as the SF New Orleans Katrina thing.

    Japan Tripper.

  2. What do you expect from people who ooze pure evil Japan Tripper? In a way I feel sorry for ARNR. They have been corrupted for so long that they don't even realize they do the work of the devil. Combine that with the conspiratorial work of the Alveys at TPR and you can see why the coaster enthusiast community is in such bad shape. If only we could return to the good days when ACE was the only game in town. Them was good days.
