  1. ^ I knew you would have something smart a$$ to say! You never have anything constructive to say either. Go play with the other kids outside.
  2. ^ WOW! So negative. Cedar Point a close second? I know everyone has their opinion and I certainly respect that. However, CP has become an amusement park icon around the world, just as SFMM has. To say that it has regressed almost as much as KI tells me that you simply don't like the park. In fact, during the 80's most people would rather go to KI over CP. Now the opposite is true. When people talk about roller coasters and amazing parks, Cedar Point is always on the top list. It is always ranked the #1 park for years, even though many of you would disagree. It may have had more trees in the 80's but the draw was not there as it is today. People do not go to CP for themeing or trees. They go to ride roller coasters. It seems real strange to me that so many people, like the above poster, are never happy with anything certain parks do. It is because of the parks progression from the 80's that so many people go out of their way to visit CP. The strategy that Kinzel has come up with is to build big, fast, and unique coasters and become "Americas Roller Coast." He seems to have accomplished what he set out to do and I, like most, love the park because of it. If you are jealous or don't like CP, thats fine! Who cares, but you don't have to make bone headed comments all the time, that make no sense at all! LOL
  3. Have you been there? LOL I have not, but as far as looks go, this looks like one of the best. I would love to try this thing out. I wonder if Robb or one of the crew could tell us what they think about Hurukan. I looked at his pick for the best drop ride and I have to say that it looks sweet too!
  4. Home park: Six Flags Great Adventure Fav. Ride: El Toro, hands down. Best investment the park ever made.
  5. LOL!!!! I knew it was only a matter of time before someone asked about this guys sister! That is part of his family, lets stick to the coaster talk! She is a pretty girl, just leave it at that.
  6. Gotta be Power Tower. The view from up there is magical. I wish we had a nice drop ride like that here in Jackson, New Jersey. Of course, we here at SFGADV are jealous for many of CP's rides.
  7. I was lucky enough as well. It was a blast in the 80's, however, I was so little and I dont remember going to other parks.
  8. Is there any real proof that KI is getting a B&M hyper for 09? It is something that KI needs very badly but until I actually see it being built, I will not believe it. This park has done so little to improve itself, yet it has as much potential as any park in America.
  9. Looks like Robb and Elissa know how to throw a party:) I hope everyone has a blast. Wish I didn't live about 35 hours away!
  10. Sweet pics! Looks like you and your family had a great time. I would love to see some more of your TR's. Keep up the great work.
  11. Stupid TR. You are a deusche bag! What a negative person. I hope your life gets a little better.
  12. How do you know what they did? and why are you wandering about it? Anyway, nice photos and great report. You always do a nice job.
  13. Six Flags gave up on the park. The gave it up for business reasons, just like Cedar Fair is making it a water only park. You guys really have to wake up. Noone went there. I know people that lived within a half hour that have been there once at the most. They go to Cedar Point or Kennywood. Please use your head.
  14. So, with that being said, shoudnt Six Flags take some crap too since they gave up on the park? They are just as guilt as Cedar Fair if you guys want to place unnecassary blame on either of them. The park didn't stand a chance and Cedar Fair is finally going to do the smart thing.
  15. You are so right. I notice a shortage of locals willing to applaud this "business decision". So maybe Six Flags was more to blame in the downfall of Geauga Lake for overexpanding it. But Cedar Fair took on the task of trying to save the park, and they didn't seem to give it much of the old college try. Moving rides to parks where they are more appropriate is good business, but not giving the locals something to make up for the loss is not good business. Most locals didn't even go to the park. LOL
  16. Couldn't have been said better. Noone really cares except for a few people and the ones that want to bash Cedar Fair. This place died after Sea World was shut down. That was before Six Flags took over.
  17. Ohio is currently the 7th largest state in population, coming in at about a million less than Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania has the following parks: Kennywood Knoebels Hersheypark Idlewild Lakemont Dorney Waldameer plus a few misc. smaller parks. Yes, none of these parks are as big as either Cedar Point or Kings Island, but I think it illustrates the fact that Ohio *could* support another park, especially in the Columbus area. Columbus has no local park, and is a reasonably large metropolitan area. What Ohio could not support was another largish park in the Cleveland area. Had Six Flags not overexpanded Geauga Lake, it may have done fine as a smaller park just like all those smaller PA parks keep chugging along without gradiose dreams of becoming the next Cedar Point. Yes, those are mostly very small parks. Geagua was a big park relative to many of those. If you want to count all parks then look at all the little ones Ohio has, such as, Wyandot Lake and Coney Island(or what ever theat little park is in cincinatti). I believe there is one more but I am not sure where.
  18. Im glad they finally put this park out of its misery. It was dying a slow death. With two great parks in Ohio, it just had no chance to surive. If it was in a place like New Jersey, where there is only one mediocre park, it might have a chance.
  19. Anyone remember that ride a Kings Island where you were in a jet or rocket and you could control the moves it made? You could make it go up or down and you could also perform barrel roles with the joystick in the middle. I think it is closed now, but it was a lot of fun when I rode it a long time ago.
  20. How are you shocked? I saw this coming for quite some time. They have been removing rides for 2 years! I dont know anyone that visisted this park frequently. I went one time in my life and I would probably never go again. The water park idea is the only thing that could make this park successful. If they could make it the best water park in the state then maybe people will come.
