  1. Take a ride on the defunct "Batman & Robin: The Chiller" Roller Coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure! VIDEO:
  2. We rode Velocicoaster today! Here's our thoughts on the ride....
  3. For the rest of you, this stupid discussion will stop RIGHT FUCKING NOW!!!! I’m sick of this shit. Here’s what everyone needs to do: go to the parks, follow the rules, and stop acting like assholes towards other people. Regardless of what they might have done. You’re not their police. Get back to actually discussing the park or dont post here. Got it?
  4. By telling someone not to bring up politics is you bringing up politics. STOP IT!!!! Your attitude here has always sucked and I will have no issue at all banning you the fuck off the forums. This your final warning.
  5. Ok I just did a full uninstall of it. Let me know if you get the pop up again.
  6. Yeah, I'll have to look into that. Thanks.
  7. Sadly, Tapatalk just didn't work out for us. It was giving everyone a "popup message" on mobile which was super annoying and the only way to disable that was to pay them more money. Not to mention that they were pretty rude with their tech support and I haven't been a fan of them for a while. The new forum should have a much better mobile theme anyway so it kind of made Tapatalk redundant.
  8. "A Place Where Everyone is Welcome" by Josh D'Amaro, Chairman, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Original post on the Disney Parks Blog: https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2021/04/a-place-where-everyone-is-welcome/ “To all who come to this happy place: Welcome.” Walt Disney spoke these words during the dedication of the Disneyland Resort in 1955. Today, more than 65 years later, they continue to inspire us – and remind us that the magic we make must include everyone. It’s important to me to share how we’re creating a place where everyone is welcome and taking action to create meaningful change. We want our guests to see their own backgrounds and traditions reflected in the stories, experiences and products they encounter in their interactions with Disney. And we want our cast members – and future cast members – to feel a sense of belonging at work. That means cultivating an environment where all people feel welcomed and appreciated for their unique life experiences, perspectives and culture. Where we celebrate allyship and support for each other. And where diverse views and ideas are sought after as critical contributions towards our collective success. But as with everything we do, this starts with actively listening, learning, and working with our cast and guests to imagine the possibilities. In 2019, we actively solicited input from our cast members from all over the world – to bring a greater focus to inclusivity and belonging for our cast. They brought forward more than 100 ideas, including one I’d like to share with all of you today. Every Disney Parks cast member is familiar with our longstanding tradition of The Four Keys – Safety, Courtesy, Show and Efficiency – which have guided our approach to guest service for more than 65 years. The Four Keys are one of the first things that cast members learn about when they join Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, and they are regularly reinforced throughout their tenure. Each cast member is asked to use The Four Keys as the blueprint for the decisions they make during the workday and the approach they bring to their interactions with others. Cast members around the world know them by heart and live by them in their roles every day as they create amazing experiences for our guests. And when we asked our cast how we could better cultivate a culture of belonging, they suggested the addition of a fifth key: the key of Inclusion. Like The Four Keys before them, The 5 Keys – with Inclusion at the heart – will continue to guide us as we interact with guests, collaborate together, create the next generation of Disney products and experiences, and make critical decisions about the future of our business. Inclusion is essential to our culture and leads us forward as we continue to realize our rich legacy of engaging storytelling, exceptional service, and Disney magic. We’re bringing the spirit of the Inclusion Key to life across our business. We’re reimagining our attractions to be more inclusive, like upcoming enhancements to Jungle Cruise and new adventures with Princess Tiana. We’re celebrating the diverse and inspiring stories of our cast and fans with creator collaborations and exciting experiences, like The Soul of Jazz exhibit at Walt Disney World Resort. We’re also looking at ways we can support and uplift our communities through programs like our Disney Dreamers Academy mentorship programs, and we’re including more diverse companies in our supply chain. In fact, we’re looking at ways to increase our support for diverse suppliers in a big way – we’ll share more details on this commitment in the future. Our goal is also to have more representation and accountability across our organization, starting with my own leadership team and extending throughout our business worldwide, through tools and mentorship and learning programs that create awareness and foster leadership accountability. We’re looking at other traditions, too – including the policies that guide how our cast members show up for work. Our new approach provides greater flexibility with respect to forms of personal expression surrounding gender-inclusive hairstyles, jewelry, nail styles, and costume choices; and allowing appropriate visible tattoos. We’re updating them to not only remain relevant in today’s workplace, but also enable our cast members to better express their cultures and individuality at work. Moving forward, we believe our cast, who are at the center of the magic that lives in all our experiences, can provide the best of Disney’s legendary guest service when they have more options for personal expression – creating richer, more personal and more engaging experiences with our guests. This is just the beginning as we continue to work toward a world where we all belong – including a more diverse and inclusive Disney Parks, Experiences and Products. There’s more to do, but we’re committed to listening, learning and making meaningful improvements. The world is changing, and we will change with it, and continue to be a source of joy and inspiration for all the world. We’ll never stop working to make sure that Disney is a welcoming place for all. I’m excited about where we’re headed, and we’ll have more to share soon. Thank you for joining us on this journey.
  9. Walt Disney World has announced today that Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will open Oct 1st, 2021! Yay! Here's a ride through of the attraction in Paris to get you ready for this new Epcot experience!
  10. Take a front seat and back seat ride on Kraken at SeaWorld Orlando!
  11. The final track piece has been put into place on Monster! Congrats to the Grona Lund team! Can’t wait to ride!
  12. Roller coasters don't always have to be the "tallest" or "fastest" to be fun! Nagashima Spaland's "Jet Coaster" takes on a thrilling ride through the trees!
  13. Take a ride on the legendary Loch Ness Monster roller coaster!
  14. The "Bumpy Bumpy Bobkart" Roller Coaster! Could this be the BEST video we've ever made?
  15. Universal has sent us a photo of the new Velocicoaster train with the tagline of "Most Extreme Coaster Ride Vehicle!" Thoughts on this?
  16. I get what you are saying using a "roller coaster enthusiast" brain. But with all the history that Mexico City has from the past 700 years, please tell me that the a wooden roller coaster built only in 1964 does not ever appear in the "top 20 landmarks of Mexico City." That would be such a shame.
  17. Montaña Rusa was a terrible roller coaster. It was rough, uninteresting, and for the amount of space it took up, did nothing really exciting at all. I get that it has some "historical value" but I am also of the mindset that not everything that is "historical" equals amazing. I personally will not miss the ride at all. That being said, here's a clip from the ride that we never released from our 2015 trip. Both sides of the coaster....

  19. Yeah, sorry... this was by design. We found that more people needed to get back to the forum home than the front page home, so that's why the top logo links back top the forum home. As mentioned above, there is now the link to the TPR Home Page that should appear on ever page of the forum. Also, if you're in the forum home, at least on the desktop version, we have put the most recent Twitter feed as there as well. Scroll down a bit on this page: https://themeparkreview.com/forum/
  20. Follow our Instagram. I've now posted IG Highlights from our resort stays in July, August, September, and October.
  21. And yet, all over the country.... the WORLD even... I keep seeing stories like this one pop up saying that not a single COVID case has been linked to going to at theme park. It just makes zero sense... https://www.ocregister.com/2020/09/14/largest-u-s-theme-parks-report-no-covid-19-outbreaks-since-reopening/
  22. I also just want to put it out there that, at the moment, California's death rate due to COVID is .043% of the population. That's right, the state is making absolutely ridiculous decisions based on point ZERO four three percent. At this point, you still have a much much HIGHER chance of getting into TWO car accidents on the way to Disneyland than you do dying from COVID because you went to Disneyland. It makes no sense at all. And just to be clear, I am **NOT** one of those batshit crazy "Anti-Mask" "Plandemic" people. But I 100% appreciate the businesses that have opened, and I follow the rules, wear my mask everywhere I go, and I keep my distance from people. (I mean, i can't stand people anyway so why would i want to be anywhere near them???). I don't understand why this is so damn difficult for many people. Actually, I do know the answer, 51% of Americans are stupid. And that is just the sad reality of where we are at. Also, have you seen this? It's perfect!
