  1. Hope this isn't too much of an old thread to reply... In comparison to other amusement park games, Roller Coaster Tycoon tends to be heavier on management systems, but still has plenty of opportunities for creativity. RCT1 has a more interesting / rewarding campaign mode. RCT2 is pretty similar to RCT1, but it has better tools if you want to get deep into modding and custom parks. However don't sleep on Parkitect, which is a more recent take on the RCT formula.
  2. Not sure if this question belongs here or in the non-parks resort discussion, but has anyone gone to the parks recently? Are the COVID / distancing policies still being enforced / obeyed? I am probably being paranoid, but my mother (recklessly, in my opinion) decided to go to Disneyworld by herself, and given her age (+65) and our ethnicity (Asian) I am slightly worried about this and would like to assess how much extra anxiety I should have this upcoming week.
  3. I don't think that California is ever going to get down to yellow to reopen amusement parks / theme parks. In my county, people seem to be taking the lockdown / covid guidelines seriously and we haven't been able to move past the red tier. So I guess no Disneyland until the vaccine is fully distributed.
  4. Looks way more modern now! I remembered seeing survey results have unintuitive coloring (which is a total niggle) when I took a gander earlier this week, but I looked just now, and it seems fine now, so one of your changes this week must have improved it.
  5. Even outside of the timely racial sensitivities, this is obviously a good branding move for the park. However, I'm sort of against the change as I suspect that placing a Princess and the Frog overlay on Splash Mountain is going to result in a worse ride. Part of it is the theme. In order to better align with the princess branding, the designers are probably going to want this ride to be as toothless and as non-threatening as possible. And given that this is one of Disney's thrill rides, I worry that the ride is going to end up feeling conflicted and weird. The other part of this is als
  6. Given Covid19, I obviously won't be able to visit Enchanted Forest in a couple of months. I'm hoping that I can still visit Universal Studios Singapore this winter.
  7. Oh my god. The pictures of the water park make it look pretty, but $105 per day is crazy. I doubt they are going to lower it for the summer either. Yeah, at this point I am hoping for both parks to get heavily discounted for semi-permanent "promotions."
  8. Yeah, I noticed that when I was looking at prices earlier. I guess I can wait a little while before deciding on whether to visit. My trip is not until the very end of May. Maybe Nickelodeon Universe will turn it around before then... somehow...
  9. Geez... this place sounds kind of terrible. I'm going to be in the area at the end of May, but it's sounding like the Sandy launched coaster isn't going to really"fix" the park. It sucks because I want to theme park when I'm vacationing, but none of the parks in the NYC area are great, and I'm not the type of person that visits a park just because there are credits. Do you guys think Nickelodeon Universe is worth going to just because it is new? The other options for me are Rye Playland and Coney Island.
  10. I'm not exactly sure how they plan to ride-ify stuff like Monopoly, but I get the feeling that the Hasbro brand is way more evergreen than some of the franchises that other parks have gone with recently... This is probably a good change for Galaxyland.
  11. Jeez, 80 dollars sounds like way too much given the attraction lineup. Do you guys think that the prices might get adjusted downwards? Or maybe they'll just do aggressive "discounting" to put it in line with something more reasonable? I have no idea how parks in New Jersey remain competitive if this is _normal_ for that area.
  12. Honestly, the main advice that I can give you is to be careful not to overload on Texas History for your filler attractions. They are pretty proud of the whole Mexican revolution thing, and by the end of my trip this past November I was super tired of hearing about the Alamo. Riverwalk is beautiful, but I found the boat tour both frustrating to find the loading to, and the particular guide my group had was pretty bad. For attractions suggestions: I actually quite liked the rodeo at the Cowtown Coliseum in Fort Worth, but I realize that it won't be for everyone.
  13. Got back from Six Flags Great Adventure a few days ago, and I figure that I should put some thoughts down. I really liked El Toro, and it was my favorite ride in the park. It was a shame that it was only running one train as that did put a damper on my opinion on the ride. If I ignore the operational issues, then El Toro is easily in my top 10 coasters. I am surprised about how many rides were running three trains. Like, I can’t imagine that Kingda Ka particularly benefited from three trains. The Safari Ride was pretty great. It must be pretty expensive to staff and maintain, so I’
  14. Just got back from Hersheypark. I’m only going to put a few short thoughts here since I suck a phone texting. I’m glad this forum encouraged me to take advantage of preview nights. From what I can tell, today was super crowded and I don’t think I would have gotten much done if I hadn’t kicked out some of the low capacity attractions yesterday night. There is obviously a great, forceful ride somewhere in Skyrush, but the restraints were too painful on my thighs after the first drop to enjoy the ride. I think that a B+M hyper will be a great addition to the park. Many of the existing
  15. I'm actually surprised that they are updating Spaceship Earth again. I figure it's probably going to be mostly minor changes (probably to the descent), but I'm not sure how easy it will be to shift the themes from "information / communication" to "storytelling" without more drastic changes to many of the existing show scenes.
