  1. Thanks for the great updates Ken, some of the artistry in those exhibits was breath taking.

     

    I wonder where rock monster will go this year at Scary Farm given End Games is no longer?

     

    Can't wait for Haunt season, hopefully I'll be there again.

     

    One of the greatest marvels of City Museum is how do they get insurance? Such an original, crazy place, like 1000 Ways To Die meets Alice In Wonderland.

  2. I have some friends in Japan right now, they were planning on going to Fuji-Queue, praying for them.

     

    I guess a good day at Fuji-Queue is like Hailey's Comet, and all the credit whores hope.

     

    Sorry you had such a bad day, this report made me seriously question if I should ever bother. R & E would be the only hope of a good day at the Queue.

  3. Yeah the ballot list seems a lot more compact this year with the enhanced groupings. It wouldn't surprise if El Loco is on next year's ballot in it's own right because it is so unique.

     

    Only gotten through my top 30 so far, though I can't see any challenger to Goudurix at the other end. Having had a large number of rides on Maverick (or Mavershark, if you ride it during Shark Week) last year, it has been huge mover as I only previously rode it 3 times in 2007.

  4. Here's the best IMO that I've actually ridden:

     

    Alabama - Rampage (SBNO)

    Arkansas - Xcoaster

    California - X2

    Connecticut - Boulder Dash

    Florida - Montu

    Georgia - Mind Bender (sorry Goliath)

    Illinois - Viper

    Indiana - Raven (sorry Voyage)

    Kentucky - Kentucky Rumbler

    Maine - Excalibur

    Maryland -Superman Ride of Steel

    Massachusetts - Bizarro

    Missouri - Outlaw Run

    Nevada - Desperado

    New Hampshire - Untamed

    New Jersey - El Toro

    New York - Ride of Steel

    North Carolina - Afterburn (haven't been on Intimidator)

    Ohio - Maverick

    Pennsylvania - Phoenix (haven't been on Skyrush)

    Tennessee - Thunderhead

    Texas - New Texas Giant

    Virginia - Flight of Fear (haven't been on i305)

    Wisconsin - Avalanche

  5. Looks like Wet and Wild has done pretty well so far according to this article, but who knows if there'll be a backlash next summer. Key points:

     

    *160,000 season passes sold before opening December 12

    *400,000 attendance to January 31, 2014 (since opening Dec 12)

    *$5.8 million pre-tax profit for the six months to January 31 (impressive from a 12 Dec opening, albeit with pre opening season pass sales)

  6. Back in the day, when Cedar Point still ran big coasters in the rain. I rode Millennium Force 12 times in torrential rain (in the era before fast pass, no line was gold). One of the Cedar Point lap counters (he had a little piece of paper and small pencil in a plastic sleeve to record each lap), shouted at me that the lap didn't count because I covered my face from the rain (damn those rides were painful).

     

    The bottom line is as long as MM behaves himself then there's no cause for complaint. But in saying that, it is still TPR's duty to take the piss out of anything and everything.

     

    Were the Skywalker twins foamers or coaster nuts?

  7. Does every park have a token creepy dude(s), who's sole purpose in life is to ride the major coaster or coasters as many times as they can? I've seen this at several parks including Cedar Point, and Carowinds.

     

    The guy is clearly deranged and should be avoided at all costs. If he breaks park rules: throw him out of the park; and if he breaks the law: throw him in general population at Chino where he'll be the one getting ridden all the time.
