  1. The Magic Kingdom wasn't too bad today since most people seemed to stay away. I posted pics on my site HERE. It was weird seeing Main Street closed off: And the backstage pathway was lined with Main Street vehicles and floats as scenery:
  2. In most cases it has to do more with manufacturers than the parks. When a manufacturer goes out of business (like Arrow or Schwarzkopf), the parts become more expensive (if available at all) which usually means the end of the ride. All those Schwarzkopf flats of the 70's were great rides, but when they wear out they just become too expensive to maintain. Same thing with Arrows coasters and flumes. When you combine the scarcity of Arrow parts with the poor design of the rides (the coasters tend to tear themselves apart, especially the suspended coasters) parks have to weigh fixing versus replacing and when ridership has also dropped off with age it's a no brainer to remove and replace in many cases.
  3. YAY! Cyclone started out so good, but has become unrideable the past few years. Next summer when I get to visit I'll be able to ride again without as much fear of whiplash...
  4. Great PTR! We keep driving past and thinking about going, now I think I have to bring my niece so we can check it out. I'll make sure she uses the restroom first though...
  5. Awesome coverage of IAAPA. I've been sharing your updates for the past two days with everyone I know.
  6. Wow, it's been a while since I checked in here and I'm so happy to see my thread still goign and being so supportive and positive! Maybe I should start a new one: "Are you a top or a bottom or versatile?"
  7. Mmm I never knew Puck had such a great voice. Check out the video: http://www.bestweekever.tv/2009-10-09/so-pucking-hot-one-more-reason-to-love-glees-mark-salling/
  8. Ummm...this was your second visit to the park this season alone, and you obviously have a season pass and plan to keep coming to the park (and probably SFNE since you're midway between them), why do you keep paying $15 to park each time instead of just paying $45 once and being able to park all year at all SF parks?
  9. Wow, great little film! You even got the old Rolling Thunder sign when it still worked right! We are starting work a little (well really HUGE) project on theme park history, so I may tap you for some info and pics if you'd like to share them.
  10. Thanks, that's my site. We have a mutual admiration society going here since I've been addicted to your great blasts from the past! There's one thing I've been looking for on the web but haven't been able to find yet and I'm hoping you might have it or know where to get it. I remember on the original 321 Contact they did a show that featured coasters which I remember watching over and over on video tape until someone recorded over it. I remember it featured Tidal Wave at Great America, and I wanted to ride it SO BAD just from watching it! PS- Any Great Adventure stuff you have I'd love to get copies of
  11. Hmmm...Six Flags America is three words, and they are LONG overdue for something new and big. The last rumor I heard was Six Flags was adding 2 new GCI's for 2009. We know Magic Mountain, and rumor has been SFOT, but then again it may be something else going to Texas. Another GCI at SFA would be great and give them a great niche with 3 great woodies... Just a thought.
  12. Glow in the Park is the best thing Six Flags has added in a long time! It blew me away, and is the caliber of a Busch or (possibly even) a Disney endeavor. I posted a bunch of shots on my site, but here are a few of them as a preview: This really is something you HAVE to see in person! Six Flags New England actually got lucky with getting Glow in the Park instead of the Dark Knight. The Dark Knight is a fun family coaster, but it seems to be disappointing a lot of guests who were expecting a HUGE thrill ride instead of the themed family ride that it is. Glow in the Park was a great surprise, and leaves guests with a GREAT impression at the end of a day at the park. Everyone, MAKE SURE YOU SEE GLOW IN THE PARK IN PERSON! Pictures and video just don't do the parade justice.
  13. The Boy & Girl Scout days are VERY busy...hundreds of scouts plus their families. The gold Flash Pass is the way to go!
