  1. I'll be honest, with the stats you listed I don't know what I expected. It certainly wasn't that, and I mean that in the best way possible. I'll embed the video for you here: [youtu_be] [/youtu_be] Great job!
  2. It was a cool coaster in concept, and the launches were really great! That said, the entire rest of the ride after you popped out of the volcano was kind of...plodding? It seemed to just lazily roll through the inversions, and what seemed like should have been a really cool finale or even second half turns into a brake run. I'm sad that more people won't get to experience it, but I don't think it was particularly 'great' outside of the unique factor. Whatever replaces it will have a nice footprint of land to work with so I'm excited to see what comes next.
  3. I can speak from experience from the Washington DC location - the food is amazing. You have to be careful when ordering plates though, they may be small but they can be very pricey. One of my favorites is the Croquetas de pollo, which is essentially shredded chicken wrapped in a fritter and fried. It was amazing!
  4. Pretty sure that's what remains of Shoot the Rapids on the Island. Edit: Yep
  5. I don't post a lot, but I've been a member of the site for a long time. The amount of stories that leak through from some of the trips made me wonder how you guys handled it all. Nowadays, after working at a park for a year and currently working at airport security, I fully understand the need to vent and yell about stupid people. It happens every day at my job, and the repercussions of people doing something stupid are far higher. You guys handled things to the best of your ability. If I were in your place I would have done the same, if not a larger reaction at times. You guys run a great site and put out great content. Its one of the reasons I come and visit so often even though I don't post. Getting to live vicariously though your trip reports and videos are things that bring smiles to my face. Eventually I'd like to be able to travel and see some of these places as well. Never let the assholes get you down.
  6. They own most of, if not all of the warehouses on the left of the dorms when approaching the causeway, the entire dorm area as well as some of the housing on the right side. Additionally they own the entire sandusky airfield site which is under construction for the sports complex.
  7. ^^ Its hard not to make it political, especially here in the US where they have done absolutely nothing to try and curb these shootings. ^Its been really frustrating to hear it. Its also infuriating to hear some of the right wing folks try and align themselves with the community they've spent so long ostracizing. Anderson Cooper had a great interview with the Florida Attorney General. If you haven't seen it here's the link: http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/14/politics/pam-bondi-anderson-cooper-gay-rights-orlando/index.html The whole situation is just frustrating.
  8. Thankfully all of my friends checked in safe, my age group has people who would frequent that particular club. I am scared, frustrated, sad, angry, but at a complete loss as to what to do about any of it. I have never felt so helpless in my entire life, let alone so useless. Donating money to the cause doesn't seem like enough, and I'm not sure anything ever will be. An article I read summed it up pretty well for people my age - he violated a safe place. A place where we go to enjoy ourselves while being ourselves. And what terrifies me the most is that it could have just as easily have been me. I used to frequent clubs, and I was at a club here in DC not 2 weeks ago. I kind of just want to punch a wall over and over again, but I know that won't do any good.
  9. Tons of pictures at this facebook page of damage around Sandusky and the causeway. https://www.facebook.com/Sandusky-Scanner-Live-167797306707716/ My family that lives in Sandusky has been posting all kinds of crazy pictures, must have been a helluva storm.
  10. Berardi's is very good, as is El Grand Patron if you prefer mexican style food - they're right next door to one another. http://www.sanduskyberardis.com/ for your reference.
  11. There will be plenty of other parks and coasters in your life, don't worry about 100. Just have fun, I'm sure you'll get another chance at CP later on in your life.
  12. This game is so much further ahead than the others in development its not even funny. Can't wait to build a new machine this summer to try it for myself.
  13. How does Cedar Point removing a completely different ride system have anything to do with Pompeii?
