  1. I like the idea of the twister concept.

     

    The twister concept looks mostly stationary... it might be more interesting if it was more like the Sky Roller, but wrapped with a toroidal projection system and some rider control over the pitch and altitude.

     

    My fantasy plane ride would be something like combining the Eyerly Acroplane with the Sky Roller... as in, put multiple forks on a spinner and lose the propeller.

     

    BTW, footage of the Acroplane! (00:58s in)

  2. When I read this, I started to fear that the Jolly Holiday Bakery could be the start of something bigger... but that's nonsense... right?

    Shanghai Disneyland however will very likely have a unique looking Main Street of it’s own, incorporating all the Disney Characters into the mix. I’ve been told to think of Shanghai’s Main Street as almost a ToonTown style concept, where each retail store front will be themed as if run by a specific character proprietor. (ie: Minnie’s Bowtique, Candy Cauldron, etc…)

  3. Eventhough I don't like it, the stadium could actually be good for the park in bringing in more visitors.

     

    ...a bunch of line-jumping visitors... I went to the park Saturday and was yet again surprised at how even worse line jumping has become. I actually tried to hold some people back and tell them they had to wait like everyone else and they pushed around me and kept going.

     

    Loved the Demon, though, especially at night. I hope it stays for a long long time.

    Did anyone else see "Toilette & Douche"? Yeah, I'm mature...

    The limited partners also confirmed the appointment of Deloitte & Touche LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm.
  5. I wouldn't be so sure. There are markings all the time on our street just for maitenence.

     

    Yeah, that's clearly the same thing

     

    I would think that the ratio of times that markings have shown up at Cedar Point to times where those markings resulted in ride construction are a lot higher than on your street. Then again, didn't your street just get two new roller coasters last year?

     

     

     

    But as you said, WAY to early to call it right now...

  6. Before I ever saw one of these Disney shows (fireworks, Fantasmic, etc), I thought the purpose was to kind of increase capacity at the parks... so people who didn't like waiting in long lines for rides could have something to do right around the time the park fills up with people. And it seemed like a good way to pull some people out of lines who ordinarily might wait in line for a second/third/fourth ride, and give other people some shorter lines.

     

    But now that I've seen some of these, it almost does the exact opposite... In Disneyland, you can barely move and you (er, *I*) get yelled at for trying to get from one part of the park to another efficiently. Your line for something across the park is effectively routed through narrow one-way corridors.

     

    At DCA, it's pretty clear that it wasn't planned to give people something ELSE to do. And now WOC will be drawing extra people into the park who will be clogging the lines trying to get their rides in before most of the park closes for the show.

     

    Goofy.

  7. I would like to see a tunnel on most of the loop. Maybe enter the tunnel, dip, then start the loop. The tunnel ends at the top of the loop, so you go in level and come out inverted.

     

    edit: something like this... it seems like it could be a surprise to find out that you are inverted when you exit the tunnel.

  8. And the 4-boat thing. Maybe CP only has 4 right now

     

     

    Well, they have at least FIVE boats:

     

    Well, I was at the park today getting my season pass processed, and avoiding severe thunderstorms in the area, while I was driving along and saw these little beauties.

    Sorry about the poor quality, I only had my DSi to take pictures with but seeing these made me even move excited for opening day. Only 20 days left
