  1. On a very slight technicality, you'll be going ever so slightly faster if you're further from the center of the ride, so higher = faster.
  2. If I have one ride on Phoenix in a day, where should I try and sit? Front? Back? I’ve heard of a magic seat but googling didn’t yield too many solid hits.
  3. What are lines like on a weekday in the summer? I might be driving through PA and am trying to be greedy by stopping at Knoebels on the way to Kennywood from the Boston area since I don't have time to do both. Might be there at 5 or so and have 2, maybe 3 hours there. Also, anyone have insider info on when Flying Turns might open? Not trying to get my hopes up, but sounded like there was a chance it was nearing the end of its downtime.
  4. Went to CGA Monday and had a blast. Lines were a breeze right at opening. Managed to get 4 rides on RailBlazer and 1 on Gold Striker in the first hour and a half or so. This was my first time on RailBlazer, which was absolutely nutty, especially in the back. Gold Striker needs some TLC or topper track, but was still decently fun. Also got rides on Patriot and Flight Deck, both of which had decently long and slow moving lines due to training new staff or just slow ops (45 min and 1 hour+, respectively). My car on flight deck was a little odd as the whole thing vibrated just going through the station / up the lift, which I haven't had on a B&M. The park claimed that ride wait times would be updated on the app, which was 100% useless as the ride times were woefully wrong and had rides that were closed shown as open (and vice versa). Demon and Grizzly were both down, and I saw someone on a boom lift looking at the top of one of Demon's loops, so no idea when that'll open. Didn't go on any flats or the park's one operating water ride since the line was predictably long on a hot day (until Southbay Shores opens). They didn't seem to be selling FastPass (at least in the AM), which I found odd considering it'd be an easy way to make a bit more money, and we would have gladly bought it. COVID protocols weren't really enforced by staff except for a few. Distancing was probably the biggest issue, though there were definitely a number of maskless people in lines, on rides etc. along with the usual line jumping.
  5. Hilarious. Thanks for the TR and the sexy sexy photos of Hakugei.
  6. Makes sense with what I've been seeing. I'm in Cuba for about 10 days so I might still swing by the ones that a bit closer to other places of interest. Thanks!

    I swear I saw someone's TR from a recent cruise or something showing the state of some of the Cuban theme parks. Anyone know which ones still have operating roller coasters or which parks are better than others? From RCDB it looked like there a lot of rides somewhat recently went SBNO, and Cuba isn't huge on websites, so easily findable information is at a premium. Was hoping to hit up Todo en Uno in Varadero and probably Isla del Coco and Parque Lenin in Havana. Thanks!
  8. Holy vegetarian options Batman! My wife will be thrilled. I'm afraid of how much money I will spend in Batuu between all the blue milk, food, and merch I'll be buying.
  9. Anyone with a pulse on the goings on at SFMM have a clue if Twisted Colossus, Lex Luthor, and Justice League will be open by December? Was hoping to get use out of my season pass for some new rides since the last time I've been but with Apocalypse and Green Lantern being closed for a while it'll pretty much only be Yolocoaster and OTSR-free Revolution that'll be new to me. I wouldn't expect lines to be crazy in early December, but was debating if regular or gold flash pass was worth it at all.
  10. Its been a while since I've visited, but I'm going to the park next Thursday and staying at Breakers Express to get the all important early entry. Does anyone know if you can park in the lot by Breakers / the waterpark if you aren't staying at Breakers or going to the waterpark? Trying to get closer to Steel Vengeance at the start. Thanks!
  11. This looks so awesome. Sounds like there's a blocking system to prevent some gnarly accidents, though I'm curious if there's a way to force people around or let them back out if they chicken out. After poking around the website a bit, I think I've also found the weirdest ride backing music ever in their roller coasters with your own car concept: And this sky ride for your car in German that ends in a very politically charged English bit:
  12. I imagine virtual loop is making the room spin as you go through it? Really curious what that is / how it'll work. Seems like a good addition to the park either way.
  13. I love how it seems to barely make it back into the station. Looks like it could valley with just the right weight distribution.
  14. Busch Gardens Unveils New 9,600-Mile-Long Endurance Coaster Dear god why is it a Togo standup? Is there no mercy? It even makes a brief trip up to Canada.
  15. I was thinking it might be a new ride system with the whole family not having a great track record with boats thing. "Join Anna & Elsa on a terrifying boat journey as they continue to showcase the family's history of trauma, as they meet up with Olaf, a lovable snowman who likes warm hugs and..."
