Personal Information

  1. I was going to say probably not, but it appears it’s actually open again! Was there yesterday. It wasn't open.
  2. Decided to do a day trip to Cedar Point. Sorry if the photos seem scarce in this report, but I really didn't stay too long there, maybe from 9:30 to 5 in the evening. But on the bright side: I finally got around to experience an RMC! I did ride other coasters that I didn't take pictures of this go around. The coaster I rode that I didn't photograph: Cedar Creek Mine Ride (Celebrating 50 years), Magnum XL-200 (Celebrating 30 years), Blue Streak, Rougarou. I didn't ride Millennium, Iron Dragon, Top Thrill, Maverick, Wicked Twister, Valravn, or any kiddie rides. In the case of Millennium,
  3. 2006 has rolled around, and new for the year is Junior Dipper, a kid-sized wooden coaster for Kidway Midway. The Reed brothers also announced in the future a shopping/dining area to be built. But for right now let's look in on the 2006 season at Timberwood. SCR21.BMP New for 2006, Junior Dipper kiddie wooden coaster. SCR22.BMP Going down the first drop. SCR23.BMP Kidway's original coaster, Ladybug, is still popular. SCR24.BMP The original wooden coaster, Patriot, still has steady ridership. SCR25.BMP The other wooden coaster, Coyote, is also still popular. SCR26.BMP Flip'd
  4. Has anybody else noticed that Google has listed Kings Island as "Permanently Closed"? I submitted multiple corrections that it wasn't the case, but for some reason it still shows up on Google as "Permanently Closed" when it isn't the case. Was just curious about if anyone else had noticed that. And nothing's changed since. I wonder if it had anything to do with the closing of Firehawk and someone erroneously marked it for the entire park rather than the ride itself. The proof.
  5. 2005 saw the removal of Dungeon and Jungle Racers. That plot of land is rumored to be a part of an expansion of Kidway Midway. But that would have to wait at least one more year. 2005 wasn't all losses, though, as they added a Chance Morgan ride, Chaos. Let's look in on the 2005 season at Timberwood Park. SCR12.BMP The empty plot of land where Dungeon and Jungle Racers once stood. SCR13.BMP New for 2005 is Chaos. SCR14.BMP Last year's addition, Flip'd Out is a hit with guests. SCR15.BMP Also still a hit is Michigan Whirl. SCR16.BMP Coyote is as popular as ever. SCR17.BMP
  6. 2004 has arrived and the Reed Brothers announced at the end of last year a replacement for PowerLoop was coming. And folks got it in the form of Flip'd Out, a Vekoma Boomerang model. Although it's a common roller coaster model, folks loved the new addition. But PowerLoop would not be the only leaving ride. Ben Reed, Jr. also announced that at the end of the 2004 season, the dark ride Dungeon (opened since 1980) and Jungle Racers (opened with the park in 1976) would close. So get your last ride in on these rides before they're gone forever. SCR1.BMP Timberwood received its newest coaste
  7. Sorry I haven't been posting too much. Been busy with work and other things, but I haven't forgotten about the park. Anyway, back to the story. For the 2003 season, only a small addition is added to Timberwood. Skateboards opened in the Action Plaza section of the park. But unfortunately it was overshadowed by some bad news. After 24 years of operation, PowerLoop, the park's original looping coaster, is closing after decreased ridership and growing maintenance costs. The good news was the Reed Brothers had promised to replace it the very next year. Anyway, let's look at the 2003 sea
  8. As we head into 2002, Timberwood receives its newest coaster; a Maurer Sohne creation called Michigan Whirl. It is another first of its kind coaster in Michigan, as it's the only spinning coaster in the state. Plus Timberwood Entertainment purchased another amusement park. This time they purchased Winston Grove Park in Northern California (still fictional park). Let's take a look at Timberwood's newest coaster. SCR1.BMP Michigan Whirl, the new coaster for 2002. SCR2.BMP People are lining up for the latest addition to Timberwood. SCR3.BMP The complete layout of Michigan Whirl. SC
  9. 2001 began with the addition of a whole new area called Action Plaza. While it only opened with a couple of attractions, Go Karts and Mini Golf (in-game), there was a promise to expand it in the future. Now let's take a look at the newest area at Timberwood. SCR204.BMP 2001 introduces us to Action Plaza with two new attractions. The first of which is Go Karts. SCR205.BMP The other is Mini Golf. SCR206.BMP A look at the new area. SCR207.BMP The Raven is still pretty popular with guests. SCR208.BMP Last year's addition, The Plunge, is a hit with guests as well. SCR209.BMP An
  10. As the new Millennium rolls in, Timberwood presents its newest thrill ride, The Plunge. An Intamin drop tower that rises people up 150 feet in the air and then rotates them at the top just before dropping them down. In spite of the formation of Timberwood Entertainment Company, L.P. which has been buying up independent parks left and right, the Reed Brothers had not forgotten their original flagship park. SCR196.BMP 2000 brings us The Plunge. SCR197.BMP Last year's addition, The Raven, is a much talked-about coaster. SCR198.BMP Next door to The Raven, its predecessor Coyote continue
  11. As we roll into 1999 and towards the new millennium we check in on Timberwood and the new coaster that has opened. But before we get to that, the Reed Brothers, since forming Timberwood Entertainment Company, L.P. (T.E.C.), made their first amusement park purchase. They had just acquired Uncle Dean's Funland in Omaha, Nebraska (obviously a fictional park), making it T.E.C.'s first park acquisition. Ben Reed, Sr. never would have dreamed that. Ben, Jr. said that they will be adding to Uncle Dean's in the not so distant future. And now to the newest addition to the flagship park, Timberw
  12. 1998 has come and the Reed Brothers had an important announcement to make in regards to not only Timberwood Park, but a new venture they were starting. Ben Reed, Jr. stated, "I am proud to announce the formation of Timberwood Entertainment Company, L.P., which will purchase other parks around the country. TImberwood Park will serve as our flagship park." So the Reed Brothers with this new company will be in the same company as other chains like Cedar Fair and Six Flags. Getting back to the new season at the park, Timberwood welcomed Doubledrop, a splash boat ride that is guaranteed to g
