  1. I don't think anyone can judge a ride's speed by looking at off ride footage or POVs, especially when it's testing. Everytime we see a new coaster test it seems half the comments are about how fast it looks, while the other are about how slow it looks. Besides the fact there are so many factors at play here (empty trains, different wheel composites, trying different launch speeds etc), it's just difficult to tell how a coaster will feel by just sitting and watching it on a computer screen. For example, I always think Skyrush looks pretty average, but my shattered thigh bones beg to

  2. Promise I have a 1994 POV of Mr. Rodgers on a VHS tape at my parents home. Will get that up over the next few weeks. Losing that was a tragedy, I have no idea what the new version looks like.

  3. Steel Pier I had tried going to Steel Pier once before in 2017, but the park closed shortly before I arrived. This is one of those parks that has a rolling closure depending on attendance. So this time, I made sure to arrive midday. I parked across the street at the Hard Rock Casino and made my way to Steel Pier. Like many of the Jersey Boardwalk parks, social distancing and mask compliance was an afterthought to most guests. However, the park was reasonably dead in the afternoon on a weekday, so it wasn't an issue for me. I was in and out of the park in less than an hour.

  5. Just came back from a visit here. I chose this day specifically because it was a weekday during the magic time between fright fest and HITP where the whole park is open but there are no special holiday events to drive up crowds. It turns out, today absolutely was the perfect day to visit. The weather was beautiful, everything I cared about was running, and the crowds were super light - I rarely waited much more than 20 min for a ride, and many rides were station waits! Arrived around 12:30 and left at 7 (park close). Mask wearing was decent enough (maybe 75%ish wearing it correctly)

  6. Zach Riddley from Walt Disney Imagineering has shared this new sneak peek at the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind coaster trains! https://www.instagram.com/p/CHN7LPLB_5C/ Here is an exclusive sneak peek of two of our ride engineers as they prep some of EPCOT’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind vehicles at our warehouse in Florida. If you look closely at the colorful paint design on the vehicles (called coaches in roller coaster engineering parlance), each one is unique with different wear patterns and impact marks. Imagineers were inspired by markings that appear on

  9. Please reopen California’s amusement parks! Done, thanks for the help on this. I don't think it'll do much good, but I did my part! I really miss Magic Mountain!
