  1. Test track is still a great ride, I could just do without the entire “build your own car” bit.
  2. Okay so next update....Here we have Epcot. I don't need to go into much detail because you all know what Epcot is about. So, I will dive right into it. Listen....I know I'm going to catch a lot of heat for this but....Out of all four Disney World parks, Epcot did the least for me. Test Track is fun as well as Soarin and Living with the Land, but besides that I wasn't blown away by Epcot. That being said, I do NOT think Epcot is bad by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, Epcot..Especially the World's Showcase is beautiful. The food was fantastic as were the drinks. I think where Epcot didn't do it for me is: A.) I've traveled a lot so seeing the little hamlets didn't really impress me since I've been to a lot of the actual countries. B.) Although there are more countries in the showcase, I wish they were a little bit bigger ala Busch Gardens Williamsburg. C.) Japan was lackluster. Japan was one of the countries I haven't been to (One day soon) but I was looking forward to seeing some of the cultural exhibit. Instead I got a giant store selling Japan products. Anyway, I drank and ate around the world and I had a wonderful day at Epcot. It was just my least favorite Disney Park is all. Everyone knows this view. Literally the only reason to ride "The Seas" is too see the greatest creature on earth...Manatees. Look at this magnificent beast. The Grapefruit Hefeweizen (although only 2% alcohol) is very tasty and refreshing. We'll end Epcot with a picture of some awesome pizza from Napoli Restorante. My ancestors would be proud. Zoom Zoom (Please don't sue me Mazda. Okay for the uncultured ones on here (just kidding) This is a Michilada. It is nothing more than a beer Bloody Mary. I have to say the one I had here was better than the ones I had in actual Mexico. Look at it while it viciously attacks this piece of lettuce! Started off with China. I'm showing you a picture of the pastry I had in France because it was better than the beer there. I enjoyed Soarin'. I enjoyed waiting only 30 minutes for it eve more. Disappointing Japan...At least I had a Sapporo when I was there. Test Track was fun, I liked the older version better though. Whoops.
  3. You really can’t go wrong with a Sky Rocket II. It is the new Batman The Ride Clone.
  4. I have never been to Hershey’s halloween event, are the Intamin’s open?
  5. The Screamin Swing will be a great addition. They’re awesome rides and I love the setting.
  6. Being a New York City native I love hearing/seeing people's reactions to their first rides on the Cyclone. It is truly a classic and I agree at your age it is amazing that it still delivers an out of control, airtime filled ride.
  7. Saturday was our free day of the trip. I went out and drank plenty of beer after MGM Friday so it was nice to wake up and not have to rush, we had brunch at the Grand Floridian at 11am and besides that nothing planned but a few flash passes at Magic Kingdom. The Grand Floridian really is an amazing place. I love the "Old Florida" look and as per usual Disney hits it out of the park. I had French Toast with Sausage which was absolutely delicious. After that my brother and I hopped on the Monorail and shot over to Magic Kingdom to enjoy some rides during the afternoon. Here is where I will give my review of Seven Dwarf's Mine Train. I rode this coaster twice when I was there, once at night and once during the day and while I do like the night time experience better, this is a great ride. The coaster part is nothing to write home about but the dark ride section is where this thing works its magic. The special effects are bar none, every detail is perfect. The part that really got me was when going up the second lift hill you see the shadow's of the dwarf's marching up the mine. A must ride if you're at Magic Kingdom. This is a short update, the next one will be Epcot sometime this week (If you're interested in seeing me drink a lot of beer). One of the mine trains pulling into the station. Really a beautiful complex. Some theming on the queue line. Happy Riders. Magic Kingdom's newest coaster. This was the perfect amount of food. It was enough to make me full but not over bearing when dealing with the Orlando heat. I love the Victorian Architecture. The Main Lobby of the Grand Floridian.
  8. I just like the overall feel of MGM. What it defintely could use is some more shade. It is unbearable mid-day. Slinky Dog is now a must ride when you’re at Disney.
  9. Okay so after our endeavor to Magic Kingdom, the following day we headed out early to Disney's MGM Studios. The Swan & Dolphin offers boat transportation there and it provides a nice quick 5 min boat ride over. I have to say that our day at MGM was great, we arrived at opening and left a little bit before closing which allowed us to ride all the rides including Toy Story Mania and Slinky Dog Dash. As far as Toy Story Land goes, it is a wonderful addition and is a hit with all fans of the movies no matter what the age. MGM for me personally, is my second favorite Disney Park behind Magic Kingdom and the only other park I went back too during my stay besides Magic Kingdom. Dinner at the park that night was at 50's Prime Time Cafe which I enjoyed very much. I had a stuffed Pork Chop which was delicious, although I wish the portions were a bit larger. The drinks were reasonably priced and included cool glowing ice cubes. So, like I said, overall it was a really fun day so lets move on to the rides. Rock N Rollercoaster 1x: Our first ride and fast pass of the day was the Vekoma Bowl launched themed to Aerosmith. I really enjoyed this ride. The theming and pre-show were very cool. I think my favorite part of the ride was the station and pre-launch were Disney designed it to feel like you were outside in a back ally. Besides that the actual special effects on the ride were a bit dated and the coaster itself is nothing to write home about but it was still very fun. Toy Story Mania 1x: I'll be the first to tell you I'm not a huge 3-D/Shooter ride person but I really enjoyed this ride. The theming was so and I mean SO well done. Bravo to Disney for really doing the franchise justice. It is a must ride just to experience the ride queue. Walt Disney, One Man's Dream: I know this isn't a ride but if they can squeeze it in I really suggest it. Disney was an amazing human being and the little museum along with the 15 minute film is a great way to learn about the man himself and cool off. Indiana Jones: This show was pretty cool, even if it can be cheesy at certain points. I mean, who doesn't like seeing sh*t blow up? Star Tours 1x: Dated is one word that comes to mind when riding this ride. I still enjoy it because it is Star Wars (Not the horrible new trilogy either). My one question is, does anyone else know how the ride jumps era's like it is nothing? Tower of Terror 3x: This ride was an absolute home run for me and I am so thankful of finally being able to experience it after hearing about it from others for so man years. I am a huge Twilight Zone fan and I can say that the entire experience is so well done. It really makes you feel like you're taking part in the episode. As for the ride itself, that portion also kicks ass as well. I love how no two rides are the same so it keeps the experience fresh as you can only guess what is going to happen. I think this was my favorite ride in all of Disney. Muppets 3D 1x: It was a nice little show, I got a few laughs. As a fan of the Muppets I wish they could have done a little more. Slinky Dog Dash 1x: Okay...So I got extremely lucky. It rained that night at around 9:15 so I stuck around and as I walked into Toy Story, the Slinky Dog coaster opened. It was a miracle, all day long lines were 3+ hours and I was able to sneak on within a half hour. The ride itself was a lot of fun. Kudos to Disney and Mack for making a coaster that is geared towards family but still packs a punch. I would have ridden another 5 times but alas, the lines. Tune in Lounge/50's Prime Time Cafe was really cool! Guitar: The Ride!!! The ride trains. This is about as solid a family coaster as they come. It really is something everyone can enjoy. Look at how nice it looks. First up, a Vekoma and Aerosmith collaboration. MGM's entrance. Disney does a fantastic job of getting people into the park with a minimal wait. Look how awesome it is in all of its glory. The entrance to the marvelously themed Toy Story area. The pre-show area with some Aerosmith memorabilia. This was a great meal. A Pork chop stuffed with Gouda Cheese and Apples...What isn't to like?! The inside of the cafe. This was Grandma's Punch. Without getting into specifics....It is a lot of different kinds of booze with pineapple and orange juice. Just drink it. The next few shots are Toy Story Mania's queue in all of its glory. Tower of Terror dominating the park's skyline. A train getting ready to launch out of the ally. More great theming for Slinky Dog Dash. A view down the main Blvd. There he is now. I love the map from the movie in the background. "Evil Dr. Pork Chop" gets me every time! New Update will be up in a few days.
  10. I can agree with all that. The old school B&M’s have a snappiness to their inversions, it wasn’t all one fluid motion like they are now. The old B&M’s felt like you were on a rollercoaster. The newer ones feel like you’re riding air.
  11. I really will never understand the Skyrush hate. It is by far the craziest hyper coaster I’ve ever ridden. The only hyper that comes close is SuperMan:The Ride which is surprise....Another Intamin. The only B&M I’ll go out of my way for are Inverts or any other pre 2003 B&M.
  12. No I agree 100%, my reasoning was I wasn't even sure if Zamperla owned it since it was in the old Astroworld section or whatever. I have no idea what goes on there. I live 15 minutes away, all I care about is it is improving.
  13. This is awesome news, the new flume will be a hell of an addition. So I guess the flume that they already have will be removed?
