    • Bloomington Indiana, between Holiday World and Indiana Beach.  Too bad, I'm always up for good Mexican!
    • Bloomington, Illinois? My wife is from there.  Ancho & Agave is some seriously awesome mexican food.  I recommend the chimichanga. Then again, Ancho & Agave is over by the airport across town while there's a Culver's right by the Fairfield Inn and they have frozen custard, so you do you.
    • Oh good lord people this is a mountain out of a mole hill.  Look at Xcelerator's top hat after a train launches.  This rider was probably improperly run (off-balance most likely) for a cycle and the structure needs to calm itself down between cycles.
    • Lake Compounce was stunned that was Idlewild's policy, so I'm hoping they can raise the issue to streamline it going forwards. But Boulder Dash and Phantom's Revenge...
    • Life Hack: Streamline your experience and avoid all of these trips to guest relations at Palace Entertainment parks by not going.
    • Seems way more complicated then it should be
    • I guess I shouldn’t be surprised because their parks seem to be run horribly but having to pay for parking at Dutch Wonderland when their website says parking is included at all US parks is annoying. I also wonder what is going to happen if someone tries to go to Idlewild on a day that their home park is closed (especially if someone isn’t aware of the policy and doesn’t call ahead of time).
    • 2021 is the first year that Palace Entertainment started offering a Platinum Pass good at all their American parks.  It is supposed to offer free admission and free parking at all their US properties.  Since I live so close to several of them and not too much more expensive than my Lake Compounce season pass, it made a lot of sense for me to purchase one. While the entry process with season passes for other chains like SeaWorld, Cedar Fair, and Six Flags is straightforward, there has been zero consistency with how you enter a Palace Park.  I wanted to make this forum to figure out how Platinum Pass holders go about entering their non-home Palace Park. Thus far, I have seen how Lake Compounce, Kennywood, Dutch Wonderland, and Idlewild handle it, but I would love to hear how the other parks are handling it.   Dutch Wonderland- Parking is not included.  Passholders can proceed directly to the turnstiles. Idlewild- Your home park has to call Idlewild to be added to a guest list.  Lake Compounce was surprised Idlewild had this policy and is investigating how it can be streamlined in the future.  If you're unfamiliar with Idlewild, the park is set up that you must purchase admission at the parking booth, which is why you can't just go to guest relations like the other parks. Kennywood- Go to guest relations.  Passholders will receive a paper ticket that can be used to enter the park at the turnstiles. Lake Compounce- Proceed directly to the turnstiles.
    • Holy shit Velocicoaster is AMAZING!!! I love these new Intamin trains!
    • If you come up US 250 from the Turnpike, there are tons of places.  There's a Culver's and Chick-Fil-A that are both very new, there's a BP station called "Mickey Mart" across from those 2 restaurants that have had clean restrooms, and there is a Meijer as well.  If you're coming on Rte 2 from the East, there's a rest area, so there are plenty of options.  I know I'm getting old as I only have an 80 minute drive to CP and I end up stopping somewhere along the way for a bathroom break!
    • not what you asked, but passing along what I learned from the actual park: if you're not staying at Breakers - so no option to go back to your own room -  and you need a "stall" (to put it politely). . the ONLY decent option in CP proper: the Restrooms right next to the Police Station. those seem to be the only ones that are regularly maintained very well, and are the most semi-private due to the design (at least in the men's room - can't speak to the women's). the only other option I can think of might be to go out the Valravn gate over to the Marina, to make use of Famous Daves (the Marina has public restrooms right there across from the Valravn gate. . but they're pretty "interstate rest-stop" level 😛 )_
    • It definitely needs to be closed until they can figure it out. I agree with people who are saying it's something with the motor based on the sound and the way the one leg is bouncing. The sound matches with a motor turning at least to my ears but then again I'm not an engineer and suck with anything mechanical.
    • https://www.cedarpoint.com/blog/media-center/the-party-fit-for-a-sesquicentennial-is-here
    • It's tempting, but adding another park and a full day drive means dipping into another week of vacation time, so probably not.  Adventureland will probably have to wait for another year.  BBQ though, that's a definite.
