  1. No park disappoints me like BGT does. But uhhh at least Falcon’s Fury is open again? And Montu is back up? Falcons Fury is shows as archived on Queue Times. I would love to visit again just for Falcons Fury (and a Gwazi ride at opening) but if FF is down still it’s not worth my time and potential $.
  2. From the moment I saw the layout I was wondering how a 4 car train would maneuver through the course. The 3 car train seems like it was part of the plan from the get go. Just my observation.
  3. I wouldn't recommend the VC or Hagrid SRL to TPR readers. If you truly don't care where you sit and can get in the SRL right when it opens/reopens for VC, sure go for it. You still don't have a great idea of how many people are waiting beyond the locker room and could get end up waiting just as long as the regular queue. Hagrid's SRL seems to be uncapped lately. Like, extending out of the building down the stairs almost to the first section of ramps beyond the main archway entry. Have all the Hagrid SRL as you want Operators are very vocal about how the SRL: has no estimated wait time. you will not have any seat preference. you will not sit with someone else you got in line with. Sadly most guests think it's an express-like hack they learned from socials. Meanwhile since Spring Break/East crowds, I've experienced VC many times with a 20-40 minute via the regular queue as well as Hagrid 45-60 minutes (even on the weekends). I do recco SRL for Forbidden Journey, MiB, Transformers, SpiderMan, River Adventure, and Hulk.
  4. Adventure Express looked fantastic for its 30th birthday. So excited to see the queue and ride get more love. Yay for more flats in the spot of that old removed slingshot, a huge improvement. Now let's talk about Action Zone..
  5. It was recently brought to my attention the CEO was bragging about trying 100 pizzas, chicken tenders, 200 burgers, and we need to be reminded of where this company is headed someone sound the alarm if he starts talking about the day of reckoning
  6. So glad you are doing this trip journal, no one takes a reader on the trip like you do bert!
  7. Now come down to Orlando to rrrreeeaaalllyyyy make sure you like Velocicoaster better ;D Glad you guys had a great day, Pantheon is so much fun. I'm so excited for more of those swing launches. The backwards air hill in the launch is crazy!
  8. I did follow some reviews about the shows/Phantom Theater, looked like a nice compliment to the ride and the park. I wasn't able to stay into the evening so I didn't get to see the fireworks show, but I did watch the official video when I got home! Looked really nice!
  9. Backlot was gated off this whole weekend and Troika was closed/not operating when I went by, but it is a solid flat!
  10. I had a great day dodging storms at KI today. Outside of the beer and food options for the 50th anny, I didn't really feel like there was this huge celebration going on. The park has a massive dead space from Orion to Beast; Antique Cars is the only attraction of note there and its nostalgia is wearing off tbh. There's nothing to do. No, no one is spending $ on the big games from the 70s still standing there taking up most of the space in the area. Beast is SMOOTH! No I don't believe any trims are different but the way they bumped up the entry intro the first curved tunnel perhaps that zaps the speed to the 2nd lift. Definitely not as aggressive but love the 2nd lift and helix, still legit. I am willing to pick row 18/back row over front row Beast which would usually be unheard of. Great work on Beast and I'll bet 100 bucks this coaster goes on for hundreds of years to come. They'll just keep it going. Beast for life. Orion front row is the spot! Relentless. Mystic Timbers tried to take off my shirt every ride lol but god the operations were slow. Getting stacked outside of the shed in the rain is not fun ha!
  11. SWO lookin at Big Bear then Ice Breaker and then back at Big Bear
  12. I wish I could visit this year, I visited October last year. And it was packed for Haunt!
  13. Nuhhhh uh. Mamba isn't 'fine'. Mamba is fiiiiiiiine! Great airtime front and back, some laterals in the turn, it's like a mini prototype Steel Dragon!
  14. As a new local I get, I visit the parks on the weekends and more so BGT exclusively weekends. Wish I had some more of your luck at BGT haha. But it's annoying that peak summer they still don't have the park fully operational and that the Giraffe Rooftop restaurant is dead and gone.
  15. They first brought that out in 2009 for Diamondback's opening year and it lingered and bounced to Firehawk, fun to hear it's back around. It's the only game where you win something of value lol
  16. This post + the fact that the pretzels were really good last visit gives me hope but I haven't seen that BGT yet.. Was Falcon's open? Sky ride? Was the train running 1 or 2?
  17. Love the pictures and report, thanks for linking to the past trips too. Europa is such a bucket list park. If you wanted to stay longer, how long would you plan a return trip there for? Or as a first timer?
  18. It's been down since early May right? And that initially was speculated due to strong storms/lightning affecting the ride? I know my visit was right around when it went down and BGT said it'd be back up on a specific day in May like it was routine maintenance. Bummer it's still down with no signs of life almost 2 months later.
  19. I'd bet the B&Ms are toast, from 1991 and 1993. They're short, not on flat ground.. and 30 years old. The park has a stunning background and looks great, Gold Striker is a top tier GCI in my opinion, it will be missed. The surrounding area is what really puzzles me. Yes there's Levi stadium right there but then the rest of the area is office park after office park and we know how quickly those are disappearing with remote work. Curious to see what comes of this.
  20. Major bummer, Bat lost a wheel and beat up the track finishing to the brake run from the looks of reports.
  21. Love the write up and photos, bert! Sounds like one of the best theme park events, especially this year. Exited to see the rest of the report! I miss blue ice cream.
