  1. It looks like there's an update over at Business Journal, but you need a subscription to view it. https://www.bizjournals.com/orlando/news/2017/10/27/skyplex-developer-ride-parts-being-built-themes.html
  2. Seeing that Opryland was my home park, then I'll have to go with Opryland. Today, you might consider the site rather small however, it would've been so nice to see how they managed to use the space.
  3. It's a little over a year old now, however I have a vlog from the Carnival Valor for the 7 Day Eastern Caribbean Cruise in case anyone is considering that particular cruise. Overall the trip was great. Food was great, ports were fine, but the ship needed a little more to offer in terms of things to do. This was my first cruise, so with that said, I don't have anything to compare it to. For my next cruise I plan on going with Royal Caribbean, because I hear that line is by far better than Carnival.

  4. I saw those from my apartment window and thought to myself, hey how long has that been on there and I didn't notice lol. They look great!
  5. I'm sure someone at the parliament house has a task that'll pay kinda good! Went to the Parliament House for the first time a couple of weeks ago. deaconnor is definitely in for some hardcore work there. Lmao I'm dying! This is the first thing I thought too lol.
  6. I'm excited about the growth of Fun Spot and glad they've gone with the themed areas idea also. It's awesome to see how fast this location is expanding. I saw a few commercial looking buildings in the artwork, so I'm looking forward to what those will be also. There's a few other things that pop into my mind with the expansion though... 1) The parking garage. Would it be a pay to park garage? Is it strictly for Fun Spot? My guess is it will be a pay to park garage, because the overflow from the Outlet Mall would take at least half the parking spots, if not more. From a business stand point, if people who are not Fun Spot customers are willing to pay for it then I think Fun Spot should bank off of that. 2) Will there be a bridge going over Fun Spot Dr. to connect the two sides? From the concept art I saw a crosswalk by White Lightning but no bridge anywhere. I think the better idea would be to have a bridge so traffic isn't interrupted. 3) I think it's great we'll have a cheaper park to visit in Orlando, but I hope there's enough security to keep the park at an enjoyable environment. I'm looking forward to hearing more details about the development! I can't help but compare the overall size of what will be Fun Spot to Opryland USA that used to be in Nashville. Opryland might've is a little larger I believe.
  7. I'm shocked no one mentioned The Voyage at Holiday World until today. The triple down in the tunnel mid way through the coaster took me by several surprises. That's the first time I can remember myself not being prepared for a coaster element. The second time was the Rolling Thunder hill on El Toro.
  8. I'm so glad they voted for the Skyplex, I think it'll do great and everyone who visits me here, I'll be trying to get them to ride lol. Super excited!!! If Universal was indeed negotiating something for the space by Universal Blvd, then that should've been part of their plea during the meeting. I understand they may not have all the details and plans ironed out yet, but a smidget of something would've been nice to help their argument. The tease of a new Universal park or resort would've stood out more and possibly caused second opinions. All in all, I don't really believer Universal had plans for that space and if they did they certainly don't have plans now lol.
  9. Now this is the messed up thing about what Universal is doing now... they're reaching out to the general public who are easily persuaded. They're making bogus statements and because it's in writing from Universal these people around here going to take that and run with it. We know better because we know about the indurstry. This is sooooo messy on Universal's part smh.
  10. I like the idea of a Animal Kingdom styled resort by the train on the right of the park. As far as parking goes, take a page from Universal and build a parking garage that'll be able to service the parks and potential resorts.
  11. I really hope this happens. I love Universal, but I don't agree with their decision to fight this. I-Drive has so much potential and the growth I see happening is so promising. The north part of I-Drive is so cheap looking and something iconic like that could do so much more for the area. As far as Universal hating, I only see Skyplex adding to their visitor numbers. That one attraction will make for more visitors in Orlando, thus more possible visitors to Universal. I'll be truly upset if they let this fall through the cracks.
  12. I would be lying if I said I wasn't slightly disappointed Twisted Twins will no longer be a dueling coaster. However, this is major for this park and will bring attendance up drastically. I'm sure this will be a favorite in the park and is worth me visiting again after all these years.
  13. I think it's awesome they're coming back and at least taking into consideration the voice of the fans. I looked over the screenshot carefully and there are a few things I see that sort of let me down... - The food stalls a reminiscent of all the past RCT games. Was hoping for something more realistic. - The basic looking coaster layout and train. I am glad to see... - What looks like off grid placement - A more full park. Never felt like the past RCT games ever left enough peeps in the parks. I have I hopes for this new game, but that also comes with high expectations. Looking forward to the updates on it...
  14. I honestly had high hopes for this park, but now.... I'm not so sure (-__-) I'll just sit back and see how this plays out.... or fades out.
  15. This is a great idea, I'm moving down to the Millenia area the 19th of this month! This makes me feel welcome, plus it'll be good to enter the amusement industry scene again.
  16. ^ Me too. I think they'll have a minor update on their progress, however I'm rooting for them and hope something happens
  17. Geez we'll see how far this goes. They've said this before I think. [hopes for the best]
  18. 1. What are your initial thoughts? I think it's a great idea for existing forum members who are frequently on here and attend some of the trips. 2. Can you think of anything else we could be offering? Nothing I can think of right now. 3. Is this something that interests you? Yes 4. Why would you NOT be interested in this? I wouldn't be interested, because I don't benefit from the trip benefits since I haven't attended any... yet. 5. Any additional feedback you can give us based on the information you see here. None at all This is great and I think it's worth the $40!
  19. Yea, i think Cannonball would've been replaced too... then there was also that spot back where the sky coaster originally was (behind Cannonball) where they could've put a good flat ride.
  20. Your so right. lol The Gaylord company doesn't seem like they're interested in the "amusement industry" that much. They're resorts are amazing though! lol Oh yea, I forgot about Nashville Shores and better yet Wave Country the next exit down. Once I think more about it, I don't think they would do build a waterpark expansion. The interference with the other parks would be enough for them to say no. I think there would be some charm, but not as much as there was when it was open. With the land being so small I think expansions would make the park cluttered. Also, there would be some ride removals for expansion... like Rock N Roller Coaster would probably be replaced for something new. Hmmm its kind of neat to sit back and think how the park would be now.
  21. RapidsNerd! Man I missed you again! I've been wanting to go over there to see what they've done lately but I never have time to. Glad you were able to make it over there and give an update. The delay on the hotel expansion is new to me. I was for sure they would be knocking down the GRR remains down real soon, but I'm not complaining. Speaking of the indoor water park, that would be great if the would do that! Even build the park around the GRR.... I don't know if that's possible, but its a thought! lol
