  1. Just got back from Passholder Preview night and was able to get two rides on Twisted Timbers, once in the back and once in the middle. Even though I305 still remains my favorite at the park, Twisted Timbers easily falls right behind it. The barrel roll drop is one of the coolest things I've experienced and the ride has plenty of great airtime moments. I definitely can't wait to ride it more this season. Some pictures...
  2. I mean... so far they made a sign that says the name of the ride in plain, Helvetica font and out it on the roof of a rectangular metal building. Look at the bottom left of the FB picture... they're building a pretty substantial faux-brick entrance there, and apparently some covered structures in that pavilion area as well. Thank you, that's what I was referring to. The station is still a bit of an eyesore but from what I can see, the new entrance looks great.
  3. Wow. They're really going all out with the theme on this ride. I love it! So weird seeing the old Paramount logo on the station.
  4. As a Maryland resident/Terps fan, Stefon Diggs makes me proud. I was glad to see the Saints lose (can't stand Drew Brees) and seeing how Sean Payton mocked the fans right before they lost was icing on the cake. That's why you don't celebrate till the game is over. I do feel awful for Marcus Williams though. Being a Redskins fan, I'm hoping the Vikings win this Sunday.
  5. As someone who rode a Screaming Swing for the first time last month (Silver Dollar City's), I can say that they are now one of my favorite flat rides. I'd love to see one at this park. I honestly never was a huge fan of The Crypt.
  6. Cedar Fair is doing a damn good job convincing me to get a Platinum pass.
  7. Twisted Timbers looks amazing. Very excited for next year along with addition to WinterFest.
  8. This is what I'd like to see, although a Storm Chaser/Medusa style drop would still be awesome.
  9. I saw Incubus, Jimmy Eat World, and Judah and the Lion at Jiff Lube Live last night. Judah and the Lion-We actually missed most of their set, but from what we heard, they were good. Jimmy Eat World-I'm definitely glad I got the chance to see these guys. I remember listening to them a lot when I was in middle school so seeing them was great. They played my favorite songs last as well. Incubus-One of my favorite bands of all time and my second time seeing them. As always they put on a great show. They sounded fantastic and never skipped a beat. Great setlist as well even though they didn't play anything off their older S.C.I.E.N.C.E album. Overall it was a great show, definitely one of my favorites.
  10. Tempesto and InvadR do not have single rider lines unfortunately (I don't think any of the rides have them quite honestly). And yes you can purchase QQ at most souvenir shops in the park.
  11. -Since you're going on Wednesday, crowds should be pretty light and I would expect most queues should have minimal wait times with the exception of a few rides. -Head to Volcano first since that always has a long queue through out most of the day,. If you get there first thing in morning when the park opens, you can get a few rides in. -I might be a little biased since I'm a backseat rider, but most rides there are great in the last row, notably Dominator, Intimidator, and Grizzly. However, I do prefer the front on Volcano and Flight Of Fear.
  12. Thanks for the report, Chuck. I'll be visiting Busch Gardens at the end of June and it'll be my first time checking out F&W, looking forward to it.
  13. Busch Gardens Williamsburg at the end of June but I might end up going to Kings Dominion before.
  14. If anyone was wondering what it's like to get rescued off a roller coaster...
  15. We are doing Busch Gardens, HersheyPark, Kings Dominion, touring the DC area, and a bunch of Live escape rooms... Sounds like a great trip, especially since I see no mention of SFA. I find most B&M inverts best in the last row. However, Alpengeist has been the only exception so far.
  16. The teaser put out in October literally says it's for 2018. End of argument. Not to mention that the 2017 season just started and Hurler's construction is in it's first phase. Not sure why anyone would think it should open this year.
  17. The track colors remind me a lot of Diamondback's, which I wouldn't complain. Regardless of how RMC Hurler turns out, I still wonder if the park is still going to shut the ride down in the evenings during Halloween Haunt like they used to, due to the Club Blood/Blackout house being in the middle of the ride's layout.
  18. Awesome update, Chuck. Definitely need to visit this year and check out InvadR, it looks like a great addition to the park's current line up.
