  1. Disney has announced that fireworks will be returning to Disneyland and Walt Disney World! For Walt Disney World, Happily Ever After will be resuming performances at Magic Kingdom, and EPCOT Forever will be resuming performances at EPCOT, starting on July 1. https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2021/06/fireworks-spectaculars-are-back-at-disney-parks-this-summer/?fbclid=IwAR2VEVo7zVrcqRU3vjQdeP4QRaeWdlI3DGzOM288ta_ZklhflnRZsk6t3ks What could be more perfect this year than a summertime visit to a Disney theme park?

  2. Disney has announced that fireworks will be returning to Disneyland and Walt Disney World! For Disneyland, Mickey's Mix Magic will be resuming performances starting on July 4. https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2021/06/fireworks-spectaculars-are-back-at-disney-parks-this-summer/?fbclid=IwAR2VEVo7zVrcqRU3vjQdeP4QRaeWdlI3DGzOM288ta_ZklhflnRZsk6t3ks What could be more perfect this year than a summertime visit to a Disney theme park? As we continue to see more communities adjust and ease COVID-19 guidelines, there’s a new sense of optimism with many positive signs moving f
  3. So, let me get this straight... A larger version of Dragonflier, in the expansion area, that's directly next to Dragonflier. They have good master planners working for them, I don't think that's going to happen. Willing to eat my words though, a new terrain inverted coaster along the lines of Big Bad Wolf or Eagle Fortress would be killer, wherever it ended up.
  4. I think the "small Gem" idea stems from the fact that pretty much every amusement park in North America is dwarfed by Disney and Universal's parks. I think the Disney / Universal market is out of reach for them, the general public will come from all over the world to go to those places. I feel like Dollywood and Silver Dollar City are attempting to stake their claim on their domestic markets, much like higher-end theme parks in continental Europe. I think they want to capture people who would normally come to the Smokies or the Ozarks for another reason and keep them in their resort bubbl
  5. Is there a source available if the zoning plan rejection was made public (for Grona Lund)? Would be useful for my own research, even if it would need translation.
  6. Grona Lund has just announced a major new expansion, anticipated to open in 2024! https://www.gronalund.com/2024 The press release is only available in Swedish, but here are the highlights: New amusement area with 25 percent of land and roof surfaces designed with trees and vegetation and a park-like character Potential new attraction with an overall height of 45 meters "Classic amusement romance" with new attractions at ground level Public bridge / beach promenade Architecture borrowing from historic buildings around the area Thi
  7. And the map would make sense if the above rumor were true. If they really wanted to get rid of Avalanche, I believe they would do so before starting the construction work on the Free Spin. Mack still sells the Bobsleigh coasters as new models so it's not like Kings Dominion would be running out of parts to maintain it.
  8. Hi Valenz - Thanks for your contribution! However, your post violates the TPR Terms of Service: I've left the thread intact but I've removed your links. Please contribute to the forum! We don't know much about who you are. Thanks!
  9. This is a pointless argument, go back to complaining about Mystery Mine's new track or something.
  10. Keep this conversation on the potential Gerstlauer coaster please, talk about Dollywood's next coaster in the Dollywood thread.
  11. Disney After Hours BOO BASH at Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2021/05/new-halloween-themed-disney-after-hours-boo-bash-coming-to-magic-kingdom-park-this-fall/?fbclid=IwAR1_975okkbhawaSQ8yizENblFiqCjY4C4QCxM-XAMhscGSJnvcfW3QjJKM I love Halloween so much … it’s scary. Since we are Halfway 2 Halloween, I’m spookily excited to announce a new Halloween-themed Disney After Hours event coming this fall to Magic Kingdom Park! “Disney After Hours BOO BASH” will take place on select nights, Aug. 10 – Oct. 31, from 9 p.
  12. Oh for goodness' sake. Herschend is not going to change anything about the freaking music because family / gospel stuff is their brand. Dollywood especially has successfully toed the line in making their religious values known, but not so in-your-face that it is alienating. I really don't see that changing, especially considering that mindset is anchored in tradition.
  13. We're not sure of the nature of this announcement today... EDIT: The Harlem Globetrotters are coming back!
  14. If Dolly Parton is in fact selling her stake or whatever, there can still be licensing agreements in place to keep the museum going, bring her and others in for shows, etc... I'm pretty sure that one of the reasons that she's stuck around for so long is because she and Herschend's brand mesh together so well. Silver Dollar City and Dollywood are IMO the best theme parks in the US not named Disney or Universal, I don't see that changing a whole lot. Maybe a little less butterflies though.
  15. Grand Reveal: See How the Disney Wish Will Unlock Enchanting Family Vacations in Summer 2022 VIDEO: https://www.facebook.com/194340658565/videos/299470571877897/ by Laura Cabo, Portfolio Creative Executive, Walt Disney Imagineering Today was a special day for Disney Cruise Line and Walt Disney Imagineering, as we unveiled a first look at the incredible spaces and experiences coming to the Disney Wish. I could not be more proud of our teams for the hard work and dedication they’re putting into making Disney’s newest ship unlike anything on the seas. If you saw the video we
  16. This is correct, when your rankings are set to Private (or Public: no on your settings), the page comes up as a 404. Keep in mind that this only happens when we have voting closed, when voting opens back up again here in a month or so once the new season kicks off in earnest, you'll be able to see them regardless again.
  17. For what it's worth, a friend of mine has been going to SeaWorld San Diego now and some photos they sent me showed some parts of the ride covered in cobwebs.
  18. Unfortunately, you are correct, they were left off of the wooden coaster results in error due to being part of a depreciated "hybrid" classification that we had used previously. While I regret the error and apologize, we will not be doing anything about it at this time because they are showing up correctly on the combined poll, which is the one that is aggregated by third parties. Their entries have been fixed and will show up correctly on next year's wooden poll where they belong. Thanks for understanding.
  19. They're on there, they're just probably not as high in the rankings as you anticipated them to be! Cornball Express placed at #207, Lost Coaster placed at #360, and Hoosier Hurricane placed at #366.
  20. From what I understand, the refurbishment efforts are ongoing and being handled on-site at the park. I believe those pieces are still coming from Mexico, it can be assumed that the pieces already at the park are in the process of being worked on while waiting for the others.
  21. Yep, this took over A Bug's Land, and the Flic's Fliers balloon race ride was rethemed and relocated to Pixar Pier where Maliboomer used to be.
  22. I believe the Web Slingers ride uses gesture-based control as opposed to a physical gun prop, not unlike the Ninjago dark rides at Legoland parks.
