  1. A great lineup at this park. The Beast, the best "new" invert, a great suspended and a giga coaster? Great stuff for wanting to get back there asap. When I first saw Orion, the layout caught my attention as being pretty cool and one of the more interesting ones out there, that I didn't even care how tall it was. It was going to be a giga anyways, and happened to match Millennium Force in height, which is still one of my all time favourites. Sure, deep down it's cool that Leviathan has a taller height and drop but you have to give CW that at least, considering the great invert that KI
  2. No, it's a separate event. Actually, the Gold and Platinum Passes do allow guests to visit Halloween Haunt an unlimited amount of times. Take a look at the benefits of the season passes in the link provided. Ah, thank you I stand corrected That's bonus news for me lol
  3. That is correct. Haunt has its own version of Fast Lane and Fast Lane Plus, either for the mazes and/ or the rides. Haunt is a distinct event from the regular park day so if coming for Haunt, you would need to pay again for parking as well if you leave. If you're already at the park, you can opt to stay for the dinner packages they offer in between the end of the regular day and the start of Haunt. This is based on past Haunts, so definitely keep an eye out for when 2019's event information is posted for the latest and greatest. During the day, you can always choose to buy Fast Lane af
  4. I wouldn't worry about the weather. Storms and rain generally clear up at some point. I don't remember the park closing due to weather during the regular season. Usually, everyone just waits out heavy rain or storms while they pass through. The only time the park has closed early on me was during an October Haunt day, where a wet snow squall made it difficult to enjoy. Even then, I assume the park closed due to very low attendance that evening more so than the weather. Guests received a voucher to return another day.
  5. The joke is that broken / worn-out cables on Intamin rides knock them out for the season. I know it's actually happened to Top Thrill Dragster and Xcelerator several times. I don't remember who said it or where I read it, but someone mentioned a rumor (?) that Skyrush may be closed due to the new construction happening right next to it, and that its sudden Sunday closure was merely a coincidence. I think that was me, just a questions I asked in the FB Group, since there wasn't any signage or info about the closure and new footers looked to be so close to SkyRush. A local guest to the
  6. So true. Understandable that some people can become jaded. I hope it doesn't spread easily! When driving up to the park and seeing that skyline, it's easy to remember why we love this stuff. Yukon Striker is a custom design, the furthest from cookie cutter for the very reasons you mention. Its use of the terrain on the side with the second Immelmann, tunnel and vertical loop is definitely different. The pathway beside that section, near the Splash Works entrance, was still under construction so we couldn't get closer. The spiral with the viewing area worked really well. It
  7. Yesterday, TPR was at Canada’s Wonderland to preview Yukon Striker, the world’s tallest, fastest and longest Dive Coaster, designed by B&M. With a 245 ft drop, the ride is a fantastic complement to the park skyline, along with its distant relatives, Behemoth and Leviathan. 72 lucky raffle winners, who participated in a fundraiser for Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto, were the first of the public to ride. The fundraiser raised $34,000 in support of children’s medical research, education and building a new hospital. Judging from the reactions and huge number or re-rides, Yukon Striker is
  8. Awesome coverage again and loved the video. I always look forward to the Intamin visit and it didn’t disappoint . The GCI model looks amazing and Gravity Group still looks like they’re still doing their awesome thing. Thanks for headinf out there again this year.
  9. These tips work. There was a point where I couldn't fit in Wicked Twister for the first time and El Toro was almost an issue. With El Toro, I moved bunched up clothes and pocket contents out of the way and it was good, after a few more push downs. Other trips, I just planned to use a locker, ditched the cargos and wore thinner material shorts or pants. My measure of how I was doing weight-wise was the old Rotor during annual fall visits to Lake Compounce. If I stuck the wall, things were good. If I slid down, I gave myself a flashing yellow light lol
  10. Awesome update, thanks Jarmor! Trade you all a first gen B&M giga and a dive coaster for this and your giga, please? Copperhead Strike looks incredible. Really happy to see another twisty, launchy and terrainy coaster come to a major US park. It's been a while since Maverick.
  11. Construction is moving quickly. I think the end of summer is making everyone squeeze in a last visit as the park was super busy compared to other summer days. Every queue was full and overflowing on to the walkways. Nevertheless, everyone seemed to be having a good time, if with a slight look on everyone's faces that summer is just about over. Is it really Labour Day weekend already? Nicman, that looks to be the general location of hotel. It will be facing highway 400 on the plot of land next to the CW highway sign. Here are some pics. Have a great long weekend, all! Looking
  12. I don’t think everyone’s going to complain that they aren’t using “normal” (old) B&M OSTRs. A majority of the park’s regular guests from the area have never experienced or seen an old B&M OSTR, unless they’ve ridden coasters in the USA or La Ronde.
  13. You’re welcome. It was a great surprise. A lot has definitely changed since they were watering the green field that was SkyRider’s spot. Glad you and your son had an awesome day and got on Behemoth. It was running exceptionally fast and forceful today. Agree, it sure was hot.
