    Here are two avatars with roller coasters as background images and an Apple logo (thank god for option-shift-k) in the foreground. Roller coasters mean a lot to me, as they're 1/3 of my life. They're also why my nickname on Mac sites are MacCoaster.

    Bonus points to anyone who can identify the following for both: roller coaster name and the theme park in which they are found.

    Edit: By the way, I took those pictures myself at the theme park when I went.

    Very nice. I like the photographs, and the Apple logo is always a nice touch to any image =D I can't identify the rollercoasters, but then I am not a big coaster fan. And never went to one while in the USA.

    It was just a guess. Since there are so many coasters there I thought I give it a shot. I went there about 2 months ago

    There can't be a thread about Cedar Point without what's-his-face who is obsessed with the place.

    I kinda know who you are talking about. Doesn't he have "future CEO of Ceder Point" or something like that in his sig.?

    Nope. I can see why you thought it might have been Batman, as both the ride-in-question and Batman are ``inverted'' roller coasters. Good try.

    Just a hint guys, from what does the said coaster appear to have track coming out?

    Surely there must be Virginians on this forums. :D Oops, did I say where it was? :eek:

    I don't know. Its kinda hard to tell at 75 by 75 pixels. I blew it up in Preview but still couldn't tell. My best guess would be something brown...?? :p

    Yup. Volcano and Shockwave at Paramount's Kings Dominion. Was there the first full weekend in this month. Went to Busch Gardens the day after, but didn't take any pictures.

    Here's your prize: [​IMG]

    Do you seriously think there aren't any coaster enthusiasts who know at least some programming? :p CoasterBuzz has a similar database.

    I like the first one more, to me it's not obvious the other one is a roller coaster and the white apple logo works really well with the sky.

    Yeah, I like both almost equally, for different reasons. I personally prefer the Volcano, hence I'm using it now, because it's subtle. I just wish a train had gone through the heartline twist for added effect.

    They suck!

    No not really, I prefer the one that looks like an "o" better though. But the concept seems a like far from Apple and macrumors. I mean, a rollercoaster? where's the link? The whole MacCoaster seem stretched. But they still look cool :)

    The avatars don't have to have anything related to MacRumors. My #1 and #3 have more relevance in that area, but this one is just something to show the meaning of my nickname.

    The man/woman loves macs and coasters and chooses to combine the two. Where is the harm in that?
