  1. Miracle is answered...Zoom Phloom is open today! Now to try to avoid going broke buying tickets due to no wristbands.
  2. Slightly off topic, but does anyone know the status of Casino Pier and Castaway Cove? Looking to get on Hydrus and the Worlds Greatest Pirate Coaster and then Gale Force and Wild Waves. I know Castaway Cove is only open 6-11 (which is fine) because their employees were "passing out from wearing masks in the heat." If the coasters aren't all open I'll probably just skip both but Ive always wanted to stop at those places. Also any other places I should know about on the shore? Not looking for kiddie coasters or looping Pinfaris but anything else good?
  3. Thanks, didn't see that when i was clicking around earlier. We'll miss the flume for sure (unless by some miracle it opens in the next week) but more time for It is a good thing.
  4. Going down next weekend. I know Adventure Pier won't be open, but what's still closed on the other two? Sounds like they've gotten a lot open since the beginning of the month so hoping most of the usual favorites are back up. Also, there's no way to get a wristband, correct? I'm fully expecting to have to buy tickets but didn't know if there's a way to get a wristband that isn't listed on the site.
  5. The governor announced today that phase 4 (including amusement parks) will not begin until there is either a vaccine or a proven medial treatment. Stick a fork in this season.
  6. Lol I never even considered the reduced capacity. If it was running half the train empty it would probably have a comparable capacity to a Skycoaster! Honestly at this point I'm hardly even bummed about it. I'm just excited about the idea of riding ANY coaster in the next couple of weeks.
  7. Now I'm officially jonesing. It's been over a month since the last post about it, but dare I ask if theres been any updates on Jersey Devil? Assuming theres a 0% chance it opens with the park but have they caught up enough to maybe have it ready this operating season?
  8. Yeah the state could always give them a special date in Phase 3 especially with reservation systems and all. Hopefully this "waiting for the next holiday thing" doesn't mean phase 4 starts on September 8th.
  9. MA just announced phase 3 is pushed back one week to July 6th, so the earliest phase 4 can begin and SFNE can open is July 27th.
  10. In the reopening guidelines, the restriction is if you've been on public transportation outside of NH, VT, or ME. So it looks like Massachusetts residents can go if they aren't using the MBTA to get to work. The place I read it removed the "public transportation" part (probably intentionally) but this is still a significant portion of their clientele. Not that anyone would admit to using public transportation if asked anyway.
  11. It's in the amusement park reopening guidelines from Sununu that were sent out yesterday. That and rides have to be deep cleaned every two hours and riders have to sit 6 feet apart, so that means Cannonball will probably have like 6-10 riders per train lol.
  12. No one who traveled outside of NH/VT/ME in the past 14 days will be admitted. Guess the state two miles to their south is out of luck.
  13. Both of those are virtually non existant. Not like 2 months ago when they had cops at the state lines asking where you went. Been down a few times for food, shopping, and Foxwoods and no one bats an eye.
  14. Massachusetts put amusement parks in Phase 4 which will start no earlier than July 20th. Of course they could change the "phase" for amusement parks or make a totally different set of rules for SFNE but thats the only thing to go on right now.
  15. If only they could really go old school and unfence the monkeys. But this is awesome news!
  16. If we all pool our stimulus checks we could buy DD and put it in someone's yard. It's too bad impulses aren't a little more popular, but other than maybe Wicked Twister when it was new I don't think I've ever waited in a line for one. Any launch is a fun launch and they're definitely unique. But even Wicked Twister keeps popping up in rumors to be on the chopping block so maybe impulses aren't long for the world.
  17. I was going to say maybe they'll throw a bone Michigan's way. Wouldn't be the first time they got something off the Cedar Fair scrap heap.
  18. I like Possessed but I feared the worst when I saw Intamin being removed and thought of everyone's favorite car crash simulating tower. Demon Drop is literally the only reason I ever stop at Dorney. Wonder if this will stay in Cedar Fair's possession. Maybe King's Dominion so they can keep pace with BGW?
  19. Not sure what you're referencing but there's only one Intamin in that park that I care about and it's not a coaster.
  20. Well I'll be damned. Sounds awesome there so far, can't wait to check it out. BTW, theres a new baseball team you can check out next time you're at Kings Island: https://www.wlwt.com/article/florence-freedom-baseball-team-renamed-the-florence-yalls/30609569
  21. We've been doing this for like 5 years now, so you know the drill. 1. How many parks did you visit in 2019? 7 Cedar Point' Moreys Piers BG Williamsburg Kings Dominion SF Great Adventure Dollywood SFNE 2. Best new-for-2019 (or new-to-you-in-2019) ride? Don't think I rode anything new for 2019, but new to me was positively Lightning Rod. 3. Name the first 3 coasters that come to mind. Lightning Rod Runaway Tram Flitzer 4. What was the best flat ride you rode in 2019? Morey's Screaming Swing 5. What is your favorite RMC under 130 feet? (cheat sheet) Twisted Timbers 6. What was the last Premier coaster that you rode? Tempesto 7. Name a park you've been to that you're already planning to revisit. Dollywood (one ride on Lightning Rod before its daily catastrophic failure wasn't enough) 8. What is your home park and how many times did you visit in 2019? SFNE - two 9. What park are you most looking forward to visiting in 2020? Magic Mountain 10. Kennywood or Dollywood? Pick one Love Kennywood, but how can anyone possibly pick it over Dollywood? 11. What ride/coaster disappointed you the most in 2019? Of anything new to me, probably Mystery Mine. Took my boots off by mistake. 12. You're at Great Adventure. You play that racist-ish gong game and win a one hour ERT session for you and your friends on ONE coaster of your choice. But damn! El Toro, Kingda Ka and Nitro are all down! So you ride... Batman 13. What is the last coaster that changed your top 10? Lightning Rod (new #1 wood) and Intimidator 305 (new #3 steel) 14. Most recent park food you ate. BACON WRAPPED PORK KABOBS!!!! 15. What park do you wish was your home park? Knoebels 16. What 2020 attraction do you have the biggest boner for? Jersey Devil 17. What park will you visit next? Quite possibly Lagoon, planning my SLC ski trip in April this year so I can finally check it out. 18. Favorite breakfast before a day at a park? Rare for me to eat breakfast although I always stop for a chicken biscuit at Sheetz whenever I'm in PA. 19. Cedar Fair park you visited most recently? Kings Dominion 20. Was it awesome? Of course. 21. Skyrush or Candymonium? I want Candymonium to win the plurality here so Skyrush has a shorter line. 22. What 2 overseas parks do you want to visit the most? Not sure how to narrow it down to two...maybe Holiday Park and Liseberg? 23. The best B&M coaster you rode in 2019 was? Nitro 24. What is the saddest/dirtiest credit whore thing you've ever done? Honestly I'm not the "ride a kiddie coaster just for the credit" type person so not sure I have a crazy enough story for this one. Does going to Delgrosso's just for the spinning mouse credit (and then realizing it was Wednesday so of course it was worth the trip) count? 25. Last time you bought fast pass? Cedar Point 2018 (9 rides on Steel Vengeance that day, worth it) 26. What was the longest you waited for a ride/coaster in 2019? I'm sure I waited over an hour for Steel Vengeance in May but I did a good job avoiding crowds overall this year. 27. What season passes/membership do you currently have? Six Flags 28. If you could go to a park with anyone on this forum for a day who would it be and to what park? Robb somewhere in Japan because I'd have no idea how to do anything if I ever went there. 29. Battle of the Busch 2020: Iron Gwazi or Pantheon - which would you rather ride? Iron Gwazi 30. Most times you've ridden one coaster (rough estimate or exact if you're a super nerd) Superman SFNE (had a count like 17 years ago but then I grew up,..kinda). Must be around 300 by now. 31. Congrats! You just won passes to spend A WEEK at the park of your choice! Dorney Park or Valley Fair? Pick one and why. Dorney Park because Demon Drop. 32. Talk about a park food that knocked your socks off Most recently: the Bacon Wrapped Pork Kabobs at Great Adventure. Anything at Dollywood. 33. Pick one: Kumba or Montu Sadly neither one yet. 34. What are your three least favorite woodies? Wildcat (Lake Compounce), Twisted Twins (good riddance), Predator 35. Best sweet snack at a park (degree of difficulty: not Dollywoods cinnamon bread) Bavarian Pretzel from the place next to Verbolten 36. Kings Island is on the phone and they want you to decide what is going in the old Vortex spot. What do you add? A real giga coaster....JK, but an RMC would round them out nicely. 37. What roller coaster currently sits at the top of your bucketlist? (degree of difficulty: NOT a new-for-2020 ride) The aforementioned Kumba and Montu. 38. Name 3 parks you want to visit in the next 3 years. BG Tampa, SFMM, Carowinds 39. Name 3 other forum members you hope fill this out. In lieu of 3 people filling this out, I'd like a funny video of a rough coaster from Robb and a TR from Coasterbill. The first thing already happened, I might win a million bucks tonight...what was the other thing again? 40. Show us how cool you are by posting a picture of yourself on a coaster or in front of coaster. Bonus points if you're holding a sign with a number on it like the nerd you are. There's a picture of me on SFNE Cyclone on its last day of operation, not sure where it is. Other than that I don't have one. I'm at 198 now, so when I ride my 2nd new coaster this spring there sure won't be a picture of me holding a sign that says 200
  22. I don't know why but this is always infinitely funnier to me whenever an official press release gets posted.
  23. This past year was good by my standards Cedar Point Morey's Piers Kings Dominion BGW Great Adventure SFNE Dollywood This year I hope to get to SFMM, Knott's, Disneyland, Lagoon, and BGT for the first time. Closer to home, on top of many days at SFNE and Great Adventure, I would like to get back to Lake Compounce and Canobie for the first time in a while as well as maybe finally check out Great Escape and Funtown/Splashtown for the first time.
  24. If it involves Nitro or chocolate my wife is all for it. Combine the two and she pretty much wants to move to Harrisburg. For the rest of us Snow Mako is probably a better descriptor.
  25. The best part is that, despite having similar stats, they will have drastically different ride experiences. One for the mild enthusiasts, and another that should be illegal and not allowed to exist in America. Candymonium will be a great ride I'm sure, especially if Mako is any indication that B&M's newer hypers are their best. With that being said, if I ever make it back to Hersheypark sometime soon, it will be to ride Skyrush again. That ride is unreal. A B&M hyper is great, but one that takes the attention away from said somehow legal insane Intamin hyper right next to it is even better. People will eat up the less intense B&M (I told my wife Hershey is building "chocolate Nitro" and she said book the room now) so hopefully lots of walk ons are in order at Skyrush this year.
