  1. The same guy did another live a few weeks ago and at one point he mentioned something along the lines of "I just realized you might have seen something behind me for 2023 you weren't supposed to see." I went back and looked and it definitely looked like water slide pieces.
  2. Very few (if any) manufacturers make their own lift chains. Giovanola being out of business has little to do with getting a replacement. I'm sure the park will say "supply chain issues"...but at a certain point that excuse can't fly anymore.
  3. Yes. Wild River Gorge. It was a terrible ride in pretty much every way.
  4. Leah has mentioned it several times on the HoWoPo that her dream is to one day add a birthday holiday section to the park. When/if it happens we will see.
  5. So I had a friend DM me the Kumba tweet from BGT today. This was my response (and I get it...two different companies):
  6. I seem to remember there being an article back in 2016 that said they were in fact keeping the chassis and just updating the restraints/shells, etc. If they were still in good condition I can't say I blame them. And they actually acquired two Arrow trains. Back in 2011 they ran one of the old Vekoma trains and the blue train from SFGAdv to compare the two. When TPR had "Deep South Bash" that year I rode in both and the blue train was definitely an improvement and that night when the park's management had their Q&A session during dinner that night they confirmed they had made the decision to switch to both Arrow trains and said they would be painted black like the Vekoma trains had been, so from 2012-2015 it actually ran two of GASM's trains.
  7. Couple of things lately: announcement #2 was made on NYD and it is a new attraction called Little Tractors: The next announcement is scheduled for Valentine's Day. Looks like they will also be making a big deal about Rampage's 25th Birthday this year.
  8. Well you do have to consider that Rocket Racer was used, so they likely did save quite a bit on that.
  9. One of the issues with yellow jackets could be due to staffing shortages and things (tables, trash cans, etc.) not being cleaned as often as in the past. When I worked at a park we had one year we had a MASSIVE yellow jacket problem, and it was because the manager in charge of park services that year was lazy AF and didn't have them spray the insides of the trash cans with bleach water every few days like the previous manager had. I had to deal with guest complaints about them multiple times a day.
  10. It's definitely not just a Dollywood thing. The Beast has a ton of them you can see going up it's first lift too. And I do agree with you on Wild Eagle. I don't know what it is about that thing but I love that ride.
  11. ^Well that also depends on the laws in the state too. For example in some states (like Alabama) if a bartender over serves someone and they drive off and hit and kill someone the victim's family can (and will) sue the drunk person driving, the bar/restaurant that over served them, and the bartender(s) that did the serving. Sure you're going to get the most money by suing the company, but that won't stop a lawyer from including the low wage worker too.
  12. They do appear to be hinting at some sort of “big” new ride: A couple of years ago at an ACE event they did mention they were looking into a new coaster and a couple of examples they mentioned as possibilities were a GG family wooden coaster and a Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter.
