  1. This year I'll be going to Six Flags Magic Mountain semi-regularly, and maybe Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom and California's Great America at some point throughout the year. Also, in June I'll be visiting the Midwest and am excited to return to Cedar Point and Kings Island!

  4. Has anyone here ever taken public transportation from NYC to SFGAdv and can tell me what it's like? I'm visiting New York for the first time at the end of the month and I'm really hoping this is doable.
  5. I really want to try to go to this. It's been about five years since I've attended a WCB. I remember seeing you guys backstage at Knott's last year while I was working, it made me feel sad that I wasn't a part of the fun. I definitely miss all of the ERT.
  6. I'd love to hit up the SFMM day! Just need people to hang out with haha.
  7. Anyone know if you have to keep the window open? The music is driving me crazy, but I don't want to mute my computer/everything else online that involves sound.
  8. I don't know, having Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, EPCOT, Seaworld, IOA, Universal Studios, Busch Gardens, and soon to be Legoland all within an hour or so is pretty good variety if you ask me. Parks with a lot of coasters work the best for home parks. I love parks like Disneyland and BGW, but when you go there all the time the theming becomes less and less special. SFMM doesn't get old too easily because there are so many coasters to ride and keep busy with, but I could never go to Disneyland 6+ times a year. Same goes for the Florida parks... and they're all so ex
  9. In the US, unless you can drive, SoCal and Orlando are the best places to be. You have several parks nearby, and unless you have flexible parents, you won't be traveling much, so you might as well have the most close-by, easy-to-get-to parks around possible. Once you're old enough to start traveling frequently, SoCal and Orlando will get boring because you don't have too much variety, you'll most likely be tired of the parks already, and other than your little area, it takes a lot of effort to get anywhere else. For example, I've completed California, plus Las Vegas, Lagoon, and Castles
  10. This just makes me more excited to see those overly colored sprinklers. Let's plan.
  11. I did that with you fully in mind. If anyone must ever speak the word janky, I think of atem times.
  12. Day 3, Busch Gardens Williamsburg. BGW is an amazing park, and easily knocked Cedar Point off of my #1 spot. The coasters are incredible, the water rides are great, and the park is just beautiful. The layout is so confusing and I got lost so many times, but it's almost like they do that on purpose because you end up in some other area discovering something else. Even with so few rides, I could (and did) spend all day there and I would have loved to have even more time. Ride operations are fantastic and lines move so quickly. Ride Count: Grover's Alpine Express - 1 Griffon -
  13. I thought special time on the log rides was reserved for me. Of course! After 9PM.
  14. My lovely TR from Virginia to Massachusetts and every amusement park worth going to in between! Also includes some Philadelphia and Baltimore sky. Yeah, I'm well rounded. Day 1 was uneventful as we (my dad and I) just flew from Los Angeles to Philadelphia, then drove down to Maryland where we spent the night. Day 2 was when the fun began at the first park of the trip, Kings Dominion! I met up with my friend Brad (B-RadG) and it was just swell. We really got to know each other on the log flume. You had to be there. Anyway, Kings Dominion was a really nice park. Lots of trees
  15. Well that's disappointing... Not so much for me, but in every ride station operators will scream "Come back in May and check out our new roller coaster!", and a lot of guests probably don't know it's a lame kiddie coaster.
  16. I'm pretty sure Knott's is still running one train on the major coasters (actually it was just Xcelerator and Silver Bullet; Ghostrider ran two) on the weekends...or at least they were on 5/16.
  17. Ninja, easily. I love it, and just the suspended coaster concept in general, but unfortunately with the removal of Eagle's Fortress and BBW, no other suspended coaster impresses me. Flight Deck and Iron Dragon are the other two suspended coasters I've ridden and I rank them very low.
  18. Maverick is my favorite launch coaster, just because its great launch is only part of the ride. As for the single best launch, Xcelerator definitely wins. Nothing I've ridden can match its intensity; TTD couldn't even come close!
  19. If you check the description of the video atem posted a couple pages back it says that you still grey out, so I'm not quite sure that fixing that was what KD was aiming for. It's what they're aiming for, they just haven't gotten it yet... But if trimming the drop still causes riders to black out on the first turn, what else can you do?
  20. From a coaster enthusiast standpoint, I hate them. It's really annoying when you're on California Screamin' or Beast when all of a sudden you get a complete slow down. I think Diamondback's ruined the air-time hill it is on and made the following helix completely pointless... And Mean Streak's was just ridiculous. However, from the park's view, they are a smart idea for reasons already meantioned; like to reduce maintenance costs. Overall, I completely understand why they are there, I just simply prefer them not to be.
  21. I guess it was just too amazing to remove from the fair completely then!
  22. BTW, I'm 99% sure Screamin' Demon IS Pole Position from some traveling carnival. Castle Park bought it from Butler's Amusements.
