  1. We also got some of the cheapest airfare ever for this trip (of all our WCB travels). PIT -> SNA (Orange County) Thursday $82 Delta SNA (Orange County) -> PIT Monday $82 Southwest // Now in search of that crazy cheap car rental
  2. ^ I would give it a little more time. I know that Mitch has been getting bombarded with ballots. Usually people procrastinate a little better
  3. Just submitted my wood one. It was pretty easy since I only got a couple new ones this year.

  4. ^ Mitch will typically send one within a day or so. It could a little longer though. Since both polls are running at the same time, he is probably getting slammed with ballots.
  5. The timeout has been increased from 20 minutes (system default) to 8 hours. I hope that is enough time
  6. The problems on the CoasterFanatics.Com helper were caused by a session timeout. It was no coincidence that it was happening to only people with large lists to rank. I have extended the timeout I really wish I could have caught this earlier. Sorry to anyone affected.
  7. Catrina posting as Ted: The West Virginia card was mailed out last Friday, so you should get it sometime this week. Sorry for the delay!
  8. And to think that there were rumors of them buying Conklin's Doppel Looping. Well ... we can still hope I guess.
  9. Much better seat than on our visit last month, but I did manage to get this photographic gem. Big size and this one ... We didn't get into monument park either. It is not an easy task.
  10. Tall woodies pretty much suck except for Voyage and who knows where it will be in ten years. The Dinn monsters of the nineties have all been tamed to the point of boredom and understandably so.
  11. That is pretty standard at Hersheypark. Any ERT I have ever been a part of there has been late. If you started only 15 minutes late, then you did pretty good. My last was Storm Runners first season and we only got the last 5 minutes of our session in.
  12. Nope. Cause if the park can't support itself, then it won't be around anyway. It is not going to leech anything off of Parque. If Parque carelessly dumped money into the park, it would make them no different than the Six Flags chain. And Kennywood would in turn become the next Geauga Lake.
  13. ^ But isn't that what a loan is for. If Kennywood was certain that any improvement or upgrade would increase revenue, they would have already done it. It is as easy as driving downtown and visiting their local PNC loan officer. I am sure their credit is pretty decent and they have plenty of collateral. Kennywood is a million visit a year park and has been for years. They are mostly interested in keeping the loyal visitors coming back. That is what has supported the park for years // BTW, did anyone hear that they are doing season passes next year
  14. I don't think you get how this all works. Parque merely consolidated all the Kennywood assets. The management and philosophy are not changing. I don't think that any responsible owner, whether it be Parque or the Henningers, are going to "play with" money. // Wishes he could still ride a log flume or dark ride at Cedar Point, but is happy he still can at Kennywood
  15. I guess it is time to update mine: Just the coasters ... 2008 Ravine Flyer (Waldameer) 2007 Maverick (CP) Starliner (Cypress Gardens) Griffon (BGE) Minor Mike (Knucklehead's) 2006 The Voyage (HW) Goliath (SFoG) Stealth (Thorpe) Speed (Oakwood) Kentucky Rumbler (Beech Bend) Kumali (Flamingoland) Tatsu (SFMM) 2005 SheiKra (BGA) Kingda Ka (SFGAdv) Hydra (Dorney) 2004 Thunderhead (Dollywood) Storm Runner (Hershey) J2 (Clementon) Silver Bullet (Knotts) Steel Dragon (Waldameer) Cheetah Chase (BGT) Tomb Raider (Canada Wonderland) 2003 Top Thrill Dragster (CP) Scream (SFMM) Superman Ultimate Flight (SFGAdv) 2002 Wicked Twister (CP) Primeval Whirl (Disney AK) 2001 Phantom's Revenge (Kennywood) X-Flight (Geauga Lake) Hypersonic XLC (Kings Dominion) Cheeta (Wild Adventures) 2000 Kraken (Sea World Florida) Flying Unicorn (IOA) 1999 Exterminator (Kennywood) Gwazi (BGA) 1996 Mantis (CP) 1991 Mean Streak (CP) Steel Phantom (Kennywood) 1989 Magnum XL200 (CP) 1988 Thunderbolt Express (Camden Park) 1987 Iron Dragon (CP)
  16. I think there is this big misunderstanding concerning the buyout. The only reason for the buyout was the park had split to something like 200 different owners. For lack of a better description, Parque is pretty much acting as a silent (at least for now) investor. The Henninger family will most likely run this park the way it has always been run.
  17. Actually, Holiday World is positioned very nicely between many medium-sized cities. The park also includes a water park, easy highway access and almost unlimited expansion area. I wouldn't expect Kennywood to come even close to that kind of expansion without the Mon-Fayette road and they might not even get an exit. Also, Holiday World charges $139.95 for their season pass.
  18. Send me a picture of the big pile of money you have to pay for this and I will give you detailed hotel reviews for the parks you are looking to go to. I would hate to do all the work if you don't end up going. // Seen this too many times
  19. Now that I am back from my latest adventure and have time to actually post my opinion ... here it is: I think it is a bad idea. Mostly because the bread and butter of the park (the people who have supported it for years) do not go to the park more than a couple times a year. If you do anything to change the norm, such as longer lines, pricier food or even pay parking, they will turn their backs. This would be the deathblow for the park. I also remember the days back in the 80s when the park had a low general admission and it was scary. The park has really positioned themselves nicely and I hate to see anything throw the balance off. Of course, in the end, I don't think many people will buy the season pass. I would consider it my home park and I wouldn't do it. Didn't work out so well for Conneaut, but they did it.
