Sounds pretty cool with it trying to break a world record

The 3rd Annual NJ Zombie Walk is less than 2 months away! We’re hard at work putting together an entire weekend of events for what we hope will be the largest gathering of zombies in history! That’s right, the Guinness Book of World Records has given us permission to make an attempt at breaking the current record set in Seattle, WA. That means we need every last corpse in the Tri-State area to JOIN US! The number to beat is 4,200 so we need your help spreading the infection to your family, friends, school, etc. Bring everyone you know with you to the walk and help us get into the record books!

WHAT?  New Jersey Zombie Walk and ZombieCon

WHERE?  Asbury Park Convention Hall 1300 Ocean Ave. - Asbury Park, NJ

WHEN?  Saturday, October 30th.

TIME?  Events begin at 11:00am, Walk begins at 5:00pm.

HOW?  There's no sign up or registration. Just show up and check-in.

WHO?  It's open to everyone, zombies all ages and undead pets (on leashes).

COST?  It's entirely FREE, although there will be cool zombie merch. available to purchase and a vendor’s area to shop through.

MAKEUP?  You can do it at home, use our limited free makeup on-site or get a professional makeover for a nominal donation.

GUINNESS WORLD RECORD? Help us break it! Arrive by 4:00pm to be part of the counting so we can become the ‘World’s Largest Gathering of Zombies’!

LATE?  Just join the walk where ever it may be lurching in progress.

RAIN?  We walk RAIN OR SHINE. Hail and locusts are a maybe.

Just posting about an idea I got about a spinning wild mouse capable of doing inversions. Just picture a spinning wild mouse doing a 360-degree spin while in the middle of a barrel roll.

Actually when you think about the concept. It won't be anything worse than riding Maelstrom at Morey's Piers. I also am thinking about a top-hat element where you do a 360 going through it too. Maybe if it isn't totally deadly I can a 540-barrel roll, too.

I would >.>

(until the Final Destination moment where the brakes magically fail and send the ride flying towards the ground)

I trusted XScream in Vegas. This is nothing.

I tend to agree after standing right next to XScream and wussing out lol.  This has far less potential for failure with the steel block and the hook along with the brakes.

Xscream is just so hilarious to think of. The only thing keeping you from plummeting 1,000 feet to the ground is a magnet.

Actually, what worries me more is simply having the bolts rip off that are holding it to the Stratosphere lol

I would like to try that tilt coaster one day. I think it looks pretty cool. As for Xscream, I am sure there are multiple anti-failure mechanisms keeping the car from running off the track, but still scary to think of.

Today I got to see the new EMALS system at Lakehurst launch an turboprop plane.

It made Kingda Ka / Chiller look like a toy.
Really amazing!  Now if I could only get a ride!

Xscream is by far the scariest thing I've ever ridden in my life. And I rode it 4 times. Insanity wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be.

How come Canada never talked about this?
Hopefully you got to see this live at least once.

Watch it in HD if you can.

Such a well done & great idea! 
I doubt Skull Mountain could entertain such a display.

I bet Disney is pissed they didn't do it first lol  That is awesome.  Kinda like the Memories campaign Disney does on Cindys castle and small world in CA but MUCH MUCH cooler.
