Don't have to imagine when I've ridden Great Adventures Sky Screamer in the 20s. ;)

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

I know parks are generally a warm weather thing, but I love that parks are doing winter events. I honestly don't get why enthusiasts scoff at the idea of riding big fast things in the cold. People do all sorts of outdoor activities in the winter - skiing, snowboard, sledding etc.

Put on a scarf, gloves and a friggin' hat, sit down, shut up and keep your hands inside the ride at all times.

:lol: Don't forget to secure all loose articles or leave them with a non-rider :lmao:
In my opinion El Toro and Intimidator 305 ride fairly and are free of material roughness.

Because people are bitches. :lol:

Honestly I'd much rather go to a park when it's in the 30's than some of those brutal 100+ degree, ridiculous humidity days we experienced at the Florida parks last June. You can dress for the cold. You can'd do anything about heat and humidity.

Riding coasters in the cold is the best, in part because of the absurdity of it all but also because it's just flat-out fun. It's also terrific drinking weather (especially since parks always roll out warm, spiked deliciousness) and tons of firepits.

... OMG can it be Holiday in the Park like... now?

I Love Donkeys!

Skyscreamer @ GAdv with single digit wind chill was one of the craziest ride experiences I've ever had. So cold, but so much fun. Virginia's nothing compared to New England winters :lol:

What's worse than waiting on line for 4 hours for Anaconda? Sitting at home commenting about it.

I'm was pretty sure the 240 minutes was a mistake when I saw it posted by boldikus. I went to queue times when I saw his post (maybe an hour after he posted it) and the Anaconda wait was 45 minutes, while all the other wait times were about the same time.

Due diligence people.
