  1. The park has posted two opening updates on Facebook. First, they announced a few days ago that Matugani (former Kanonen) will not be ready to open with the park. Second, they announced they will be delaying the theme park's opening until 6/18 due to construction delays.
  2. Of the two last year, I much preferred Scary Farm. For HHN, not all the rides are open and many that are open close early.
  3. Does anyone know if Sandy's Blasting Bronco is open? On one hand, not a single ride is listed as closed right not at Nickelodeon Universe. On the other hand, that seems like a borderline miracle that not a single ride is closed given the park. Edit- The ride closures are no longer listed under Park Alerts on the home page. When you go to buy tickets, it states Sandy's is still closed for annual maintenance and Skyline Scream is closed because it's Skyline Scream.
  4. Queue-Times shows Orion as open unless that's an error. Then again, didn't Cedar Point reopen Steel Vengeance on the same day the ride bumped by running one train?
  5. Considering how strong this park's top 2 is, a coaster like Dr. D or basically any launch coaster would fit in perfectly.
  6. Today is such a weird day for crowds. The shortest wait for a coaster all-day has been Superman since that crew is absolutely killing it.
  7. I'm surprised we got the off-peak rate given how swamped Dollywood and Pigeon Forge was for spring break.
  8. This was the actual view of the better of our cabins. You could see Lightning Rod in the distance if you knew where to look. The shots were taken from the parking lots where there were less trees in the way.
  9. I'm pretty sure most people book cabins in Pigeon Forge for the view of the Smokies. I picked cabins with views of Dollywood's coasters. I was able to get some unique shots of Lightning Rod and Wild Eagle the past few days. Speaking of Lightning Rod, the coaster only opened for the final 8 minutes of the day on Sunday due to the prior day's snowstorm and then it ran like it's usual self on Monday with a delayed opening and multiple breakdowns.
  10. I'm excited to see more single rider lines. I wonder where they'll be routed.
  11. My biggest disappointment with Maverick and Steel Vengeance being pulled off early entry is that more people will probably head to Millennium Force. That has always been my go-to ride during early entry because the line for the front is easily the shortest.
  12. Top Thrill Dragster will remain closed for 2022. Link to Sandusky Register
  13. Bellewaerde This hybrid animal and amusement park surprised me. I wasn't expecting the park to look as nice as it did going into my visit. The park was very green and shady. Plus several rides were themed and incorporated animals into the experience. The park was also much busier than I anticipated. Many attractions had hour long waits just 2 hours after opening. I was fortunate I arrived at opening to knock out the major rides. I had to skip two credits for this reason. But it wasn't just the coasters that got busy, several of the water rides and safari rides did too. Bengal Express.MP4 From a ride perspective, I was most surprised to see the park still had an operating Huss topple tower in El Volador. And it was the prototype no less! The ride did have a delayed opening due to mechanical issues (surprise surprise), but I was glad to get back on one even if the ride experience isn't too great. This ride really is a lot more impressive to watch than it is to ride. And Bellewaerde placed this ride perfectly on this elevated structure and added fountains. Wakala was my favorite coaster there. This Gerstlauer creation offers a dynamic ride experience with some fun twists and turns plus a short backwards bit at the end. It rides like Firechaser Express if you take away the little pops of airtime, which still makes it an above average family coaster. Huracan was a hybrid dark ride and roller coaster. The indoor sets in the main dark ride bit were larger than expected and pretty cool. The coaster bit had a few moderately forceful drops and helixes, but there wasn't too much theming during this part. The park has one of the older Boomerangs and it was riding pretty smoothly all things considered. That allowed me to appreciate the forceful ride without getting my neck chopped. The most puzzling coaster is Dawson Duel. Take your average mountain coaster. Now remove the mountain and make guests walk to the top instead of riding up. The descent also removes the levers, so everyone goes the same speed. This ride was a big disappointment. Not only does it have a dreadful throughput, but the downhill course was quite weak between the lack of good elements and odd placement. Bellewaerde is an excellent family park combining a unique mix of rides and animals.
  14. The park does look better at night. Walking around that mall at 2 am is going to be creepy. Then again, there isn't much people there when I've gone anyway.
