    • That $23,500 fine must have sent a strong message throughout the industry.
    • Interesting History on Accidents at Kings Island on YouTube.   
    • ^ you do NOT want preferred parking at SFOT - if you are planning to stay until end of day. they empty the lots at end of day, by opening up exits at the BACK & Sides of the main lots. . so if you're in preferred (ie: parking up front), it's a bitch and a half to get out.  You'll be sitting stuck in massive traffic jam if you wait until end of day to leave.   Yeah, you would THINK you could exit out the same entrance you came in, but nope. . SFOT doesn't do that. so yeah, Kim, I'd say go towards the back of the lot, nearest the exits you can find, then just make the longer walk up to the front gates.  You're gonna be doing a lot of walking anyways, and it will save you a ton of grief at the end of the day (just my 2cents). this isn't an issue at SFFT, since the Exit is the same as the Entrance for everyone.
    • Since that is a holiday weekend with an event going on, I would just buy it ahead of time, especially since it's only $25.
    • I recently changed my plans to visit SWSA to Feb 13th. Being a Saturday with the Mardi Gras event, and Quick Queue unlimited being only $25 (with Platinum Membership), would anyone recommend I just buy it ahead of time? Or still think it'd be good to just wait until day-of to see how crowds are?
    • Ok so in case anyone didn't know (and maybe you all did already)  Apparently you cannot have two preferred parking reservations active at the same time, even if they are for different parks on different days. Couldn't make a res for SFOT on 2/15 because I already have one for SFFT on 2/14. Certainly not the end of the world, don't have to have pp and there will very like be available spots anyway on day of. But still, annoying.
    • Loving these update vids, much more detailed than the ones they did for Joker. 
    • Technically, the only new credit I got in 2020 was riding the S&S Axis prototype in October, but I doubt that is even on the list. I will probably adjust my 2019 rankings a bit but overall this should be pretty easy to submit! Thanks to everyone involved for putting this on again!
    • That's a great video. Kudos to the park for putting in some effort to update us on the construction! Come to think of it, I think Jersey Devil will be a bit of a "sleeper hit" this year. All of the attention will be on VelociCoaster, Pantheon, and Iron Gwazi (rightfully so), but just like in 2018 with WW and RB, this coaster could turn out batsh*t insane and get overshadowed by those bigger rides opening in the same year. I can't wait for this ride to come to SFMM.
    • Even if the ride was fully built and tested by late March, the park would most likely delay the opening until after Memorial Day.  That's how Six Flags seems to handle every ride opening.  The one I distinctly remember them rushing in recent years was Wonder Woman at Fiesta Texas just to beat Railblazer so it could claim the title as the first single rail coaster.
    • I liked the pottery shop... that's a bummer, really. I've actually grabbed a few things from there.
    • Enjoyed the video! This is a park that for years, a construction update was basically ten minutes of unedited video showing someone drill a screw into some metal, if you even got an update at all. I appreciate the effort they're putting into making the updates digestible and entertaining. I like the "over the fence" construction peak nod, too, lol. 
    • I didn't ride anything new, but I might rethink some of my rankings from last year.
    • ^ Honestly, I don't think any of Ocean Parks coasters are very good and only have the views going for them, even the new B&M which is maybe one of my least favorite B&M's I've ever ridden (I'd heard people complain but on my first visit it just seemed to have typical B&M rattle, however on my last visit it was really bad.)   Screamscape is reporting the Arrow coaster is going to get the cut for certain but 1) it's Screamscape and 2) their source is just another blog site called Coaster Kings who credit Hong Kong news without linking to the article but after some searching I found it Here. The article mentions 7 but I could only match up 5 using the Chinese since the translation really made the names different but the 5 listed in the article turned out to be: The Ferris Wheel, Dragon Coaster (Arrow Looper), Abyss Drop Towers, Chairswings, and Log Flume.    Saying that however if I were to take a guess, I would also think that the whole back-end of the park would be the first to be phased out. So one of the other of the 7 could be the swinging ship since all the rides around it are being removed. Even on packed days whenever I have been people show up for the dolphin show and then return to the summit area near the train and cable car, the only ride that ever had a line was the observation tower. The place is a ghost town and I don't think I've ever waited for any ride there including the Arrow coaster. The  Condor ride was already removed from there a while ago.   Considering the main entrance of the park is mostly devoid of rides and probably going to be the area for dining/entertainment, and most of the rides in that article marked as being removed are in the same area in the back of the park I can see them turning that area into the rentable area for '3rd party operators' since it isn't too far from the funicular and cable car stations.  The only wild cards are 1) there's a brand new 6 seater version top-scan there which if this article is true it will be completely  on it's own which is a bit weird and 2) I'm curious how they will entice people to go there if the park is now a pay to ride park. It might be a hard-sell to 3rd operators to move in all the way up there since that area isn't accessible without taking the train/cable-car. When people had already paid to go through the gate, of course they went up, but I feel like under the new model more people just going to look around will end up down in the entrance/aquarium/panda area. Perhaps the funicular will become free to get more people up to the summit and the cable-car will be paid? Will be interesting to see how the animal exhibits spread throughout the park will factor into the new paying model as well.   The other area is the flume/mine-train area. It's far away and another area that people never wanted to make the trek to. The Huss Enterprise was already removed and this article lists the log flume. I just don't see the mine train being kept open if it's the only ride in that far off corner. They added VR to it to revitalize it but they did the same to The Abyss drop tower and that's apparently being cut.   Honestly I'm basing it off that newspaper article, so don't take it as confirmed until the park or government says something. I haven't heard anything official yet but the park and government is supposed to release details at the earliest next Monday so maybe confirmation could come then.   I've attached pictures of one of our trips on a hot sunny September of the crowds entering and the rides at the back-end. Full disclaimer that it seemed a lot of the crowds that day were there for the aquarium, dolphin show and the animal exhibits around the rides at the top because that's where we kept hitting crowds.            
    • I keep saying the same thing for returning to Florida but my Disney Premier Pass ends March 31 so March trip here I come. If Iron Gwazi is open by then I'll make a side trip to Tampa from Orlando.
