  1. I've ridden around 13 and here are my top 5 and least favorite 1) Superman the Ride/Bizarro 2) Skyrush 3) Apollo's Chariot 4) Goliath 5) Nitro 13) Goliath (SFMM) Other thoughts: I liked Magnum but the trains/seats killed it for me. I wonder if Cedar Point could put B&M style trains on it like with what happened with Steel Dragon. 30th anniversary coming up... I really didn't get Diamondback and was totally underwhelmed by it. Looking forward to riding Ride of Steel, Phantom's Revenge, and Intimidator for the first time possibly this year.
  2. ^We all gotta start somewhere. I think when I joined this site the only Woodies I had were the ones at KD and SFA.
  3. According to coaster count, Galaxi at KD is my most "rare". I did ride Drachen Fire when it had 6 inversions so I would consider that experience my most rare since that was only available for three seasons. I just read through this whole thread and did find the different criteria people have interesting. By Robb's definition there are only really 6 or 7 true rare credits. By coaster count's method, if you live in Russia you're just swimming in rarity and you even get rare point for riding Cannibal.
  4. If this is your first trip to Cedar Point I'd recommend a second day, if possible.
  5. Wonder if some changes/adjustments were made because this is a LSM launch instead of hydraulic (like on Stealth, KK, TTD)?
  6. The UAE is one of the Muslim countries our president loves because he has a golf resort and gets money from them! We did a good 'US Apology Tour' while there, and it was interesting how so many people thought EVERYONE in the US voted for Trump. We explained that less than half of the country voted for him and don't share his values. So we're trying to help with how the world views Americans! Your efforts are appreciated!
  7. Mean Streak and Corkscrew tag teamed my back the day I went. If my back had been in better shape I may have ridden Mean Streak again. Corkscrew, on the other hand, gave me PTSD throughout the rest of my CP stay.
  8. I'm thinking about doing a Western PA/NY trip this summer and will definitely look to this thread for any tips as Darien Lake and the other parks on my list will be new to me.
  9. I legitimately laughed out loud. I got nothing, never been to a single one of these parks. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Hah-- well the trip looks more like a multi-state flight from the law than a vacation. I don't know what parks the OP has been to or what the budget limitations are, but I would seriously consider breaking the mega trip into two separate ones. Maybe one that was more Northern US focused--Pacific Northwest/Silverwood, Northern California, Utah, Colorado and a different one that included the Southern Cal/Southwest, North Texas, Oklahoma, Silver Dollar City-Missouri parks.
  10. To balance out my snark, I do recommend Glenwood Caverns. Unfortunately Giant Canyon Swing was down when I went but their alpine coaster was excellent. I think I read that this year they'll be getting a drop ride that goes into a mine shaft, which sounds kind of cool. If you can shift things around a bit, I would definitely recommend you try to do Lagoon. Fun family park with a top 25 ride in Cannibal.
  11. Its a extremely forceful ride, the first airtime hill out of the turnaround is nuts. I may have missed this but were there any adjustments made to Thunderbolt after its opening year? I remember most of the people from the mini-East Coast trip in 2014 were not fans.
  12. Good God. This is the kind of trip that could destroy a family.
  13. ^Partially inspired by this thread, I'm making a random goal of trying to get 10 new wooden coaster credits this year. InvadR should be easy. The other ones that are possibilities are Swamp Fox, the ones at Camden, Mystic Timbers, Lightning Rod, and Thunderhead.
  14. I have no idea if or when I've posted in this thread so here goes: 5) Raptor 4) Montu 3) Dueling Dragons Fire 2) Banshee 1) Afterburn
  15. Aweseome report on a part of the world where I have no idea if I'll ever get around to visiting! Nicely done.
  16. Hopefully I won't be on it.... Well, I didn't want to be so blatant in my finger-pointing...
  17. I think we should start a "Weirdest Things The 'Coaster Enthusiasts' Have Said" thread.
  18. Whelp. I guess I'll do this park next summer. Along with Delgrosso's and Idlewild. I've been delaying doing that trip for awhile.
  19. ^Well, here's another vote for Alpengeist being horrible Anyway, my vote for underrated coaster goes to Roller Coaster, the old wooden at Lagoon. Maybe my expectations were low but I really enjoyed my rides on it. Another coaster buddy of mine agreed with me so maybe there's something to it. For now I'll chalk up the unrated aspect due to not many enthusiasts visiting that park.
  20. This trip report and my friend just getting back from Orlando (he did Disney and Wrestlemania) reinforce my need to get back down there. So many new rides over the past decade since my last visit: Cheetah Hunt, Manta, Mako, Rip Ride Rockit, Harry Potter, Fun Spot, Falcon's Fury... And that's just the non-Disney stuff! Great report as always, Andy!
  21. Nice update as this has been a development I've been trying to keep tabs on over the years. Good to see some progress being made. I guess whether that eventually leads to theme parks and RMC's remains to be seen but at least it's something!
