  1. ^That's pretty crazy. Did they reopen Crazanity? Wonder what caused the outage, if it's internal or from there power source outside the park
  2. And Battlestar Galactica at Universal Singapore? *Edit* I think this might be the first continuous coaster and not 2 separate coasters. Kinda like TC where you get to ride both sides before the ride comes to an end as opposed to having to get off and back on again?
  3. Definitely Looking forward to West Coast Racers! Love TC, now WCR looks like it will be a blast as well. Another racing coaster can't help but make me think that Knott's was way ahead of their time with the short lived, and horrid Windjammer Surf Racers. Looks like Jet Stream will stay, thankfully. I couldn't imagine loosing another water ride there after the Log Ride closed.
  4. Excellent post. Would love the opportunity to visit the Imagineering head quarters one day. Seems like it would be an awesome place to work
  5. You can take an Uber over to Downtown Disney for an evening, tons of restaurants, shopping and dinning. Splitsville should be opening any day now there. Locally Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant, Rock N' Brews (although kind of expensive) is pretty good, and Portillo's Hot Dogs are all great options near Knott's.
  6. That wasn't an "almost" that actually did happen back in the 90's thay installed and operated, briefly a looping waterslide.
  7. I don't understand the hate Green Lantern gets around here. I've ridden it a few times and actually really like the ride. I think it's rather unique.
  8. I don't see either Apocolypse or Green Lantern going anywhere. They just spent a ton of money reinvesting in Apocalypse over the summer with it's retracking. And Green Lantern is not even 7 years old yet, and is very compact. If anything I could see it being relocated to another park, maybe to SFStL as they haven't had a new coaster in quiet some time. Or really any seasonal park where they would be able to refurb it in the off season. It will be interesting to see what season pass pricing is on the new passes.
  9. For sure: -Disneyland/DCA -Disney World -Six Flags Magic Mountain Hopeful: -Six Flags America -Six Flags: Discovery Kingdom -Six Flags Fiesta Texas -Six Flags Over Texas -Six Flags Great Adventure -Six Flags Great America -Six Flags Over Georga -Six Flags: St. Louis. -Six Flags: New England -Universal Studios Hollywood -Knott's Berry Farm (hangtime looks awesome). -Cedar Point (if I can do all the Six Flags parks first, next year all the Cedar Fair Parks). -Silverwood.
  10. Anytime during the school year on a weekday is usually great. The park is located in the desert and summers days (June/July/August) can often push 100°+. If you do go during these months make sure to have plenty of water. If you visit during October they *include admission* to Fright Fest. The event usually draws a larger crowed than normal and the catch is you have to buy a wristband to do all the mazes and extra activities other than walking around and riding the coasters. I use to live about an hour from the park so I don't have a ton of information on the hotels. I do know there is the Hilton Garden Inn right near the park (maybe a 2 minute drive). According to Trip Advisor past guests say there is a shuttle but I would call the hotel to confirm. Otherwise should be a $5-7 uber each way. When you do overcome that fear of flying make sure you take a ride on Tatsu where you can "Fly at the Speed of Fear". Have a great time at the park. It truly is an amazing park for any coaster enthusiast. *Edit* If you do visit in the summer, Hurricane Harbor is also on property but a separate admission ticket. If you have a couple of days to spend it's a nice water park, a bit small though. Also look for when the season pass holders have the "Bring a friend free day!" They tend to be extremely crowded.
  11. Excellent work on the TPR Coaster Poll. I remember Mitch Hawker's Wood Coaster Poll's from a few years back. I still think El Toro holds the top spot for wood. That coaster is one for the ages. Thank you for doing this! I'm super excited to see the results.
  12. this ride will be much better if it's racing than just single track OP's What do you guys think the chances are of the coaster racing after the first year? Also will we get to ride backwards during Fright Fest???
  13. it seems as it's gone from no access page to page not found? hmm... Where are you hiding Twisted Colossus?
  14. Glad to see i'm not the only one who couldn't sleep tonight waiting for the new announcement. So Twisted Colossus, bet the trains run backwards all the time! Rides more fun that way. 3 minutes togo.
