  1. Agreed, Cedar Fair had the best practices out of every park. Sea World San Antonio was pretty good, but it was also extremely dead. Cedar Point in particular was extremely annoying on their policies, to the point that a lot just didn't make sense, but they kept the park extremely well distanced and safe even though it was packed. Kings Island was very good, but not as strict as Cedar Point. The worst park I would say was Silver Dollar City honestly, after you got through the screening process, rules weren't consistent and people crammed into lines while they overly distanced ride vehicles
  2. We were in the same boat in October at CP (It turned out to be absolutely necessary with 2 plus hours on most rides) and when they were extending it for all of 2021 it was a no brainer. I highly recommend it, even at the high price. It kind of incentivizes us to go to more parks since after the initial price it makes it quite affordable to go to any Cedar Fair park without much waiting. I have a feeling that we won't be seeing daily fast passes next year or at least for most of it.
  3. This makes a ton of sense with reduced capacity. Normally the park wouldn't be able to operate profitably with all rides open, but since most people accept now that the entire park doesn't need to be open. It's much easier to fill events like these on the weekend all year long. As long as they come up with activities such as the lights and things to do around the park when it's too cold to operate the coasters, I don't really see how this wouldn't do well. Something good has finally come from this Covid mess.
  4. Adventure Express at Kings Island... All kidding aside, Phantoms Revenge has to be it for me. It's so drastically more insane the second half than the first half. I'd also say Magnum is another great example of an amazing second half ride. There are some other great 2nd half rides, but the first half of these are so good that I just consider them overall really good, but here are some other ones that arguably would make my personal list: El Toro Phoenix Steel Vengeance Voyage Maverick Batman The Ride Clones Premier Spaghetti Bowls
  5. Did this pull the boat back up on a winch in reverse? There was a similar ride I rode years ago on a school day trip to a little backwoods amusement park (Either in Maryland or Virginia) that was a private event type of place for larger gatherings. Anyways, this ride looked very similar to this one but without the tunnel. Except this one was a bit steeper/longer shoot, you would start from the top and it would shoot you into the Potomac river. The winch would then pull you backwards up the shoot and it would drop you again. The motor was rigged to some kind of old tractor. Definitely
  6. I agree, friendly competition is fine and all. These parks and companies are hurting though across the board, attacking neighboring parks in social media posts isn't tasteful right now. Ice Breaker was supposed to open sooner and had to push back for circumstances out of their control. Universal keeps building this reputation that they don't play nice with others, which is ironic since they're number two in Orlando anyways. It's like second place making fun of third place and acting like their first. It would take one post by Sea World addressing the pandemic and not being able to op
  7. If my memory serves me correctly, this isn't Premier that's doing this. It's Busch/Seaworld that insisted on them for Tempesto and carried the trend into their other installments at other parks. What I don't understand though is why they're adding them to a non inverting coaster since that was the logic with Tempesto.
  8. Oh, a night ride on the beast would of been a wonderful experience and a great way to end the season. They did eventually open Wicked Twister for a few hours and we got to ride that as well. We made the most out of it though, got to do a lot of flats we normally skip. Fortunately we got to do a good bit Saturday night which made up for the almost non existent coaster line up today. I was honestly surprised since almost all of the coasters were fully staffed the entire time, but even the ride ops said even though things could change. It’s likely a wash for the day for any of the majo
  9. I can confirm, Corkscrew is the only coaster open with a nice 2 hour wait with one train operation for those that are worried their missing out on this epic last day of the year. The wind restrictions here are nuts, I expected a few rides, not all of them to close, haha.
  10. Thanks for sharing these pictures, this was from my first year I ever went to BGW and brings back some really cool early memories from my childhood. The park felt like an entire different world back then from what I remember.
  11. This makes me think of that Chinpokomon episode of South Park, considering it's written in engrish. Glad to see you all had a good time at Fuji Q. I think this is the first, or one of the first times I've seen the park sunny.
  12. Way to make my I305 style coaster look like poop. Seriously though, that's an amazing coaster. I've seen some half decent interpretations of what I'm trying to do at NE. That's hand's down the best I've seen though. I'm still tweaking the layout on mine, but I highly doubt I'll ever pull something like that off. But thanks for sharing that. One of the most interesting screens I've seen in awhile. EDIT: I added an updated image of the new layout. I think I understand a bit better now what you saying. This one seems less cluttered. I wouldn't say it's final yet. But it's better. Or at lea
  13. I think what I love most about this park is that it doesn't stray from the 'parks general' Cedar Fair theme. In my opinion, it's one of- if not the9 best Cedar Fair parks executed I've seen. Keep it up! MOD EDIT: Watch your spelling and grammar, Please!- R.D. Games Forum Moderating Team
  14. The cobra roll is being removed. This was sorta what I was afraid of when posting the screen. Everyone would see all the unfinished things then think, what the hell was that kid thinking when he did that. But I also felt like I needed to show the ride because I was considering taking it out if it did seem that out of place. The pacing on the ride works very well. I made the turns both wider and smaller when building. The ride runs, and looks the best this way. Besides the cobra roll. This was the best final outcome I could come up with after many different designs. The few things that need fin
  15. ^It's going along with the I305 theme of a giga. If you've seen I305, it uses the exact same support styling. I am attempting to hack a impulse track to the bottom of the catwalk to accomplish that style even more accurately. But it's still a work in progress. Only the lift, and first turn are supported at the moment. I wouldn't have posted that image in a million years normally. It was the only way for me to show it's actual sizing.
