    Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!
  1. Searched the first 8 pages and didn't see a general thread nor did the search function turn up anything so my apologies if there is already a thread. I usually go to the Lake Compounce's Haunted Graveyard every fall but didn't get a chance to last year so this is my first time there in 2 years. I remember that BD takes a while to warm up so if you ride when the park opens at 5, you really don't get much airtime but after 8, the ride absolutely FLIES and your butt is barely in your seat. Just went this weekend and I got in 3 rides, including one right before closing at 10pm. It wasn't r
  2. Just got back from Hershey and I have to say SkyRush is definitely one of a kind. It was actually the first ride I rode since my friends wanted to. The switchbacks were full and it was really only around a 45 minute wait. Could it kill them to put some shade over the queue though? The misting fans could only do so much. Anyway, they managed to dispatch a train every ~2.5-3.5 minutes or so. I thought the crew was doing a pretty good job all things considered. They made sure to fill the blocked off rows if no fast pass riders were there. The big problem is that it takes so long for the ride
  3. How crowded is the park usually on the day after July 4th? Heading down there tomorrow to ride SkyRush finally. The weather looks to be perfect and hopefully the heat will drive everyone to the water park also, re: the 2nd train getting the new restraints - is that definitely happening right after July 4th? I'd hate for there to only be one train running when I go
  4. Was there airtime on the twisty hill right before the final airtime hill?
  5. So I'm going to SFGAdv tomorrow and the weather forecast says 30% chance of rain and scattered thunderstorms. Just wondering what I can expect from the park operations tomorrow. Even if it doesn't rain, will a lot of the rides be closed due to the possibility of tstorms? I go quite frequently but have never gone in the rain before
  6. Hey guys, just posting to say I entered a free giveaway for a Nikon D700. For those of you that speak camera, it's Nikon's entry level full-frame camera..with a $2600+ price tag. Since I'm just a hobbyist, I don't make any money from my photos. I have been eyeing this camera basically since I've been in Hong Kong. When I upgraded to the camera I have now, I was considering the D700 as well but didn't buy it because of pricing issues. Anyway, each contestant has a unique link. For each unique IP that clicks that link, the contestant gets one more entry into the contest. More entries = more
  7. I think it might be my perspective that's off. It's true that the MTR is much smaller, but I think there are some aspects that just make it downright easier to use. The transfer stations are made so that each platform level is a direct transfer, rather than having line 1 on one level and line 2 on another. The main lines have interactive, virtually complete maps of the entire system so that you never have to stop and find out which way to go next. The main thing about Tokyo's metro was that sometimes it was hard to figure out which station you were at. If you were going 1-3 stops it wasn't
  8. and here are the rest from Singapore skyline at the start of sunset skyline at the start of sunset the end of sunset light show at marina bay sands clarke quay. they have a skycoaster-like attraction there but it's extremely expensive (about 50 SGD) just a sign that we're well-traveled... chinatown at night more chinatown at night no durians allowed on the singapore MRT. and for good reason..they smell terrible (and taste terrible too imo) my friend is a bit obsessed with hello kitty and likes to get a picture of it wherever she goes >_> us nea
  9. I saved the best for last ie the only other theme park I went to. I only spent 2.5 days in Singapore but I felt like I saw a great deal in that time. I have a bunch of friends from Singapore that I met on exchange so it was nice to see them. SIngapore was basically the converging point for all of my friends at the end of the semester. We all went separate ways in our traveling at the end of the semester but converged in Singapore. These past 4 months were honestly the greatest of my life so far. I'm already back in the U.S. but I want to go back. The saddest part is perhaps the fact that
  10. on the new year we took a bullet train ride to Kyoto. most expensive train ride ever. the same service is available in china for like $15 USD (it was $170 USD in Tokyo), though i;m sure japan's version is infinitely safer. kyoto was beautiful though inside the bullet train. nozomi line the bullet train service is called shinkansen a shrine in kyoto. it's very popular to visit these on the new year some gardens some gardens some gardens..... from the top of the small hill some temple... cherry blossoms aren't in bloom right now random stray cats
  11. Here is Tokyo. This was honestly one of my favorite cities in Asia. The only drawback was how extremely expensive it was. Even moreso than New York... bright and early to go to the Tsukiji fish market fish market only the best sushi i've ever had in my life the chefs Tokyo Dome City! Thunder Dolphin is closed though thunder dolphin and big-o in all their glory. the japanese call them zandaa dorufin and bigu-o >_> we did go on big-o though. the view from it: crosswalks in tokyo were interesting. at certain busy areas (aka most of tokyo...jk), pedestrians can
  12. Here we go. I have about 2000 photos from this trip. After sorting, I have around 500. I'll just share the meaningful ones here. I have photos from Seoul, Tokyo, Kyoto, and Singapore. Each post will be a different country, starting with Seoul. some delicious soup noodles with kimchi kind of shocked to find baskin robbins in seoul kind of a typical street at night a picture within a picture some temple the guards were in very traditional garments namdaemun market - (supposedly) the largest such market in seoul seoul at sunset as seen from the ridiculous fre
  13. ^^ oh wow, I never knew. kinda bummed but everyone says Thunder Dolphin is kind of a dud anyway, so that's my consolation ^Thanks! edit: what in the world? apparently i'm signed in to a really old account. i think this was my first account but i completely forgot what the username was so I made a new one a while back. and when i logged in the other day I guess I unknowingly used the old username
  14. hey guys, just wanted to give you a really quick update on what's going on i've been in tokyo and kyoto for the past week over new years and it was unreal. i went to tokyo dome city but didn't get to ride Thunder Dolphin since it was broken (i have pictures though). i'm in singapore now and went to Universal Studios. Rode everything there more than once. Battlestar Galatica was great. Transformers was gdgsahflja AMAZING. maybe i'm just too easily impressed though. tons of pics to come soon
  15. also, I submitted the Lotte World photos to the park index but how do I go about getting them approved? btw, how difficult is it to get to Tobu Zoo Park from Tokyo via public transport? debating going to ride my first mega-lite but google maps isn't doing me any favors
