  1. I need to visit this park so bad. It's like top 3 for sure if I made a must visit next list! I've only been to one park on the east coast, BGE. Unless you count Cedar Point as East Coast. Are there any other parks nearby I would also be able to hit?
  2. Damn, you guys are pro at Beer Photo Trip Reports. I wish my friends were willing to try new brewpubs instead of going across to the gas station and buying cases of bud light over and over.
  3. No. Do you hope I believe in magic? (missed the mcdonalds reference)
  4. Yuck. Tell him he isn't welcome back until he has ridden Eejanaika at Fuji-Q. http://www.themeparkreview.com/videos/eejanaika.htm
  5. I liked this Trip Report a lot. I also liked how you didn't complain about the cold too much. Afterall it's probably why the queues were so short!
  6. I don't feel that way at all. I think it would be fun to fly out of a roller coaster, you'd basically be flying. The only bad part about it is what happens next, hitting a solid object and probably severely injuring or killing yourself. That's why it is fun for me, you get the benefit of feeling like you're flying out of the chair without the disadvantages of getting hurt. If you throw up or break your leg, I don't see any advantages to either of those, because there is no moment of sensation or fun during either of those events.
  7. Using the name your own price feature?
  8. "I cant see how anyone could enjoy feeling like they're gonna come out!" ^ Probably because you don't actually come out but you get the sensation you will. =P
  9. I really can't afford $170 a night for the Hilton Garden Inn. Should we just start looking in like San Fernando? Edit: Oh hey, we're also looking for good places to eat outside the park. Anything you could suggest would be very welcome! Not looking for anything too nice and expensive, just something that has good service/food/prices near SFMM. I was pretty pleased with Marie Calendar's last visit.
  10. I've been on 3 stand-up coasters. Riddler's at SFMM, Vortex at PGA, and Mantis at CP. Riddler's is by far the best of the 3 in my opinion. I usually only see steel coaster "top 10" or "top 25" lists, and naturally stand ups don't rate very high overall in those lists. Which makes me wonder, what is the best stand up coaster in the world based on user ratings? Is there somewhere I can go to see that? Is Riddler's the best? I'd be surprised if it wasn't.
  11. My friend and I are planning to go to Knott's Berry Farm first, and we got a good tip from a TPR member to stay at a hotel across the street for $60 a night that is apparently decent. I'm looking to spend no more than $80 per night for hotel and I've started looking around Valencia/Santa Clarita and I can't seem to find anything, even the lowest end hotels are charging $100 a night. I know you guys live there, so it might be a stretch to ask about hotels, but then again, I figure you might know something I don't.
  12. The Kölsch from Four Peaks Micro-Brewery in Tempe, AZ From the website: Sunbru Kölsch Style Ale A very light golden ale that is malty sweet, almost honey-like in the nose. This ale has a light to medium body and a very delicate flavor. Easy drinking, it has very low bitterness and a soft dry finish. 5.2% alcohol/volume. This style originates from the city of Cologne, Germany where all twenty eight breweries are dedicated to brewing only Kölsch. Wish I had a picture of the actual beer, and the rockin burger that went with it. Maybe next time, but this is my favorite pub beer around here. Also was my favorite brew when I was in Germany.
  13. Your mother is a circus wagon. That's right, a circus wagon. Yeah, I said it...
  14. Thanks for the suggestion, I hear the renovations they did there were good but... Above the price range, cheapest room I found for those dates was $159 per night. Looking for something closer to around $50-60 per night.
  15. This is kinda sad but, I don't remember. I know it was either Tidal Wave or Demon at Paramount's Great America. Demon: Tidal Wave
  16. We were hoping to stay somewhere a little north of there. It would make it easier to get to SFMM in the morning and also avoid traffic on the way home. How far is the drive from Knott's to SFMM anyway? I assume about an hour?
  17. My best friend and I finally coordinated our schedules to make a trip and visit both of these parks. We are thinking of leaving on April the 9th at about 8am. The drive to Knott's from Phoenix, AZ should be around 5 hours, as we'd be going directly to the park. The park closes at 8pm, does that give us enough time if we get there by 1:30 or 2pm? Should we not attempt this at all and stay the extra night in the hotel so we can get a full day at each park? We are on tight budgets... Looking at Knott's website, it appears it is a prime time to go because there is no scheduled ride rehab. We plan to hit SFMM tuesday and be there when it opens. We're not sure whether we should run to X or Tatsu first. Also, I've heard rumors that X is closed on a certain weekday every week for testing/maintenance purposes, is there any truth to this? I'm basically looking for some insider info you might have that I don't about these dates, Knott's would be Monday April 9th, SFMM would be Tuesday April 10th. I am not interested in the entire trip if I don't get a chance to ride X, so I am really hoping I will be able to know it will be open. I have been to SFMM twice since it was built and neither time it was open, once was when they delayed the grand opening, the other was when it was down for revisions. Any other tips I might need? Any suggestions on where to book hotel? Keep in mind we'd need it to be cheap, but we don't want to stay in a dump or the ghetto. (probably a place in between Knott's and SFMM would be good) As far as inside the park tips go, I'm much more familiar with SFMM than Knott's since I haven't been to Knott's since I was very little. Thanks for any help!
  18. Apollo's Chariot at Busch Gardens Europe in Williamsburg, Virginia. Many amazing humps, and it's very very smooth and comfortable. As for the best single moment airtime I've experienced? Goliath at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California. The really long hump coming out of the 2nd drop is pure sex.
  19. How many total entries are allowed? Unlimited? How long do you think we will have for submissions?
  20. This is a good idea, I've done this sort of thing with hot babes before =P I think it might be a little more fun for people with less experience if it was only 64 coasters total, instead of a whole 128, but I was still able to vote on a couple.
