    She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

  1. The mazes were decently staffed, the scarezones just were not. Like I said, one had no one it in, another had literally one woman all night. A few had a scattering of 4-6 but that's sadly it. It was! The Emergency Exit map on the outside of the building still said Dracula on it lol I don't have any basis for what it used to be but for me it definitely wasn't "cheesy kids" to me. It's 3D so there are a lot of blacklights and colors and stuff, but it is sufficiently creepy and seems pretty dark in tone. There are a few parts that may be "funhouse-y" to people (moving floor tile
  2. Time to get a down and dirty trip report/update out of the way! For a first visit, I quite liked SFOG. I wasn't blown away by the park, but it had a very nice charm to it that is very hard to find at other Six Flags parks. I have Mindbender and Goliath tied for my favorite ride of the day. Monster Mansion was delightfully campy and confusing, and Blue Hawk was surprisingly not as bad as expected. Operations were pretty awful all day, though, which was disappointing. Scorcher was letting trains go once every 5-7 minutes so, despite two train operations, the standby wait was well over an hou
  3. You will probably need a flash pass. Even if the lines aren't that bad, if this is your one visit in the foreseeable future, it is worth it. Especially considering how bad ops have been at SFOG this season. I've outlined the perfect way to get through the park without Flash Pass in this thread before a few times. If you want to search for it, it will help. I will tell you normally the gates open 30 minutes early and usually both Cyclone and Scorcher are open at that time. Once the rope drops by Scorcher at opening, go straight to Dare Devil Dive if it is running. If you don't do this
  4. This Saturday I'm visiting for the first time and trying to get as many (hopefully all) the credits I can. Any recommendations for how to plan my day? I know DDD and Goliath will probably have the longest lines (especially with VR for DDD) but beyond that, any recommendations? Also, since it's the second weekend of Fright Fest, are crowds usually higher than usual? I'm on the fence about getting a Flash Pass since I'm not sure when I'll realistically be able to get back to SFOG but if crowds are going to be light or average, I might not waste my money if one isn't needed.
  5. That makes sense, do you have to continuously get out and re-enter the lazy river like at other places? And any recommendations on slides to skip or check out?
  6. After much hemming and hawing, I think I'm finally going to make another trip out to (what's left of) Geauga Lake this week, primarily for Wildwater Kingdom. Since I can find almost no information regarding it online and no one has posted this summer, how manageable are crowds on summer weekends? It seems most people just ignore this place in lieu of Cedar Point/Kings Island/Columbus Zoo but I really wanted to check it out since he last time I was there was when it was still Sea World.
  7. Managed to get a quick, and surprise video of Impulse testing over the weekend. Sorry for the strange focusing and slight shake, it was spur of the moment and I had no better camera equipment with me than my cell phone. The ride is almost eerily quiet as it goes through the course. I know it has no riders but even empty it has almost no roar to it. Still looks impressive though.
  8. As someone who's home park is Knoebels, my money is on Ringracer
  9. Sorry but am I the only one who isn't fully sold on Full Throttle/YOLOcoaster yet? I've kept up with all the updates and, so far, the layout just seems* to be lacking any real excitement other than the launch. Also, it seems incredibly short especially since the top hat dives right into the break run. *I say seems because I know it still hasn't opened yet and looks can be deceiving until you finally ride something.
  10. Still loving you're pictures man! Some of those shots you had were just phenomenal.
  11. Wow, once again even more beautiful pictures. I loved the shot of the log flume and of the 69 car. This report is making me want to grab a new camera so much
  12. Wow great pictures! I've always thought that Asian cities are extremely photogenic and I hope to one day be able to go and shoot some pictures of my own. Cant wait for more pictures!
  13. Amazing. That's all I can say about what this year is shaping up to be. I really hope I can make it down there to check it out. I really want to know what happened to Boris though. They kind of left that hanging and it is bothering me. But, has anyone called 407-224-9132 yet? The number was put up on Screamscape and when called Bloody Mary gives you a message. The interesting thing is that in the beginning it sounds like she says something along the lines of "I know why you are calling...but he's not with us...anymore!" I'm thinking that the 'he' she talks about is Boris, but what happened
  14. Wow, this place is just absolutely amazing! I would love to visit some day because the theming here is top notch and everything blends so well together. By the way, what was the name of that song in the video? I keep hearing it but I don't know what it's called.
