    • I love how one of the best coaster types ever is still alive and well to this day. (fight me)
    • I have a 10 year old son who loves to play Solitaire game but he only an only play games on a weekend when there's nothing much to do. Optimizing the Windows 10 operating system is important if you want a better Solitaire Game experience. You need to make sure that your system runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible and that it doesn't bother you while playing games. My favorite game as a child was Solitaire. That was my favorite game because Solitaire gives the mind something to focus on, particularly in times of low action when the opportunity to fret is high. Keeping calm by focusing on a low-risk game like Solitaire is an excellent way to diffuse any tension in your mind or body and help you enjoy your day or get to sleep better at night. A study conducted by Gnambs et al. found that while playing video games can result in a tiny hit to school performance, they don't affect a child's intelligence. According to some preliminary research, strategy games can increase older adults' brain functions, and perhaps even protect against dementia and Alzheimer's. Solitaire is one of such games this game gives the mind something to focus on, particularly in times of low action when the opportunity to fret is high. Keeping calm by focusing on a low-risk game like Solitaire is an excellent way to diffuse any tension in your mind or body and help you enjoy your day or get to sleep better at night. Windows provides many games such as Solitaire that you can play for fun and to relieve stress. You play Windows Solitaire like you might play real solitaire, by arranging cards in order on-screen.
    • Nice! I enjoyed Racer though even for me it was bordering on too rough, so this is wonderful news
    • Visited today and saw some good and bad for the first visit back since 2019. The park looks like infrastructure was updated in some spots, buildings appeared painted, grounds were manicured better etc. Some major rides were closed which was somewhat expected being a special preview weekend (RoS, Boomerang, Motocoaster, Rolling Thunder, Bumper Cars, Pirate and Predator tried to open but was down just about all day).    I thought the fact that they weren't spacing a ton on the rides was good, unlike Great Escape the flats used all available seats and spaces. The only times we saw spacing was the Viper and Tantrum. Tantrum was the worst because it's one family/group per entire ride vehicle, so the line crawled. Viper looked worse but actually moved decent thanks to good ride ops.  The food was sad still, but it's Six Flags, I don't go there for great meals. Still I would like my food to be warm at least. As for the clientele, Darien Lake has always attracted some less than desirable characters but it is amazing the difference between this park and say a Hershey or even Great Escape. My wife said that when my daughter and I were on a ride she even witnessed a domestic dispute that had security involved, got to say that's a new one for us.  All on all is was a good day, lines weren't bad other than the two coasters mentioned (Mind Eraser was also open but had a walk on wait) and the park still felt clean and refreshed as compared to past seasons. Most employees were upbeat and helpful, and only a couple looked lost. It's no Disney or Universal but for a small regional park it's nice, it just needs a little more sprucing up and second trains for the major coasters. Honestly I would take that over a new ride any day because then I could enjoy what they already have more. Can't wait to get back for RoS when it opens.
    • My understanding is that it's due to the construction of Tiki Twirl in the old Crypt spot.  If you look at this map, it doesn't look like there's much space to work behind it, so they'd have to be in front of it, right in the pathway, to work.
    • hmm. . perhaps they are going to be doing something on Volcano's site, and they need the access, so therefore have to remove portion of Avalanche track?
    • Open. Didnt ride it and since the walkway to ROS was closed there was no way to tell if any track work was done without riding it.
    • Incredible!  I'm going to talk about it when I do my report, but the new track sections (basically everything between the bottom of the first drop and the turnaround) is new, and in the front and row 5 at least, are Mystic-Timbers-smooth, no joke.
    • How disappointing.  So long as it's not gone for good. At least we've still got i350, Twisted Timbers, and Rebel Yell to celebrate.
    • Nice little video. I'm going to try to go Friday night because I think it's going to be a ghost town. We shall see.
    • How is the racer with the new retracking?
    • Thanks for sharing. What is the status on Predator? Is is still being worked on?
    • Avalanche closed for the season is confirmed.  At the top of the Avalanche page on their website (and on the roller coasters page) it says... "Avalanche will be closed for the 2021 season." https://www.kingsdominion.com/play/rides/avalanche
    • The T-Rex is an interesting one. I think it's kinda like the Intamin Xcelerator in that because that model is all about the height and big launch, only park's with big budgets bought one (Knott's, Cedar Point, Hershey, Thorpe, and (at the time) Six Flags for example). There's a reason no smaller park built one, they were too expensive and if thoose parks wanted a launch they could easily go to Premier, Gerstlauer, and (now a days) Mack. I think the T-Rex is the same story, because it is designed around a tall height and speed, the pool of parks that would be interested in buying one is too small. And those that would want a single rail, can go with the less expensive Raptor model. I think if the Jersey Devil and Stunt Pilot layouts are successful than I think we could see significant interest from smaller parks in the Raptor, and the T-Rex will be shelved until some park really says they want a bigger ride than the Raptor can provide or they need a higher capacity that the Raptor just can't muster. I think the 208 RetraK has more potential for RMC. Unlike Titan Track it doesn't need new trains or controls (I think the Titan needs the GCI trains if I'm not mistaken) whereas RMC advertises the RetraK to work with existing trains and control systems, plus it can be installed by the park's themselves if they want. I think this could be really cool, and have a wide appeal to parks that just need a little help with maintaining their wooden coasters.
