  1. This. I don't have a dinning plan since it's 2.5 hours to SFOG, but between my free membership drinks and 50% off food my lunch there when I went a couple of weeks ago was $6.88 for a pork sandwich, fries, and a Coke Zero. My friend got something similar, but they just have the super cheap season pass and their meal was $21 and change.
  2. I know he seems like he did a lot of good work at Indiana Beach...but is he biting off more than he can chew by taking over both of these other parks?
  3. Honestly at SFOG on Sunday there were several rides that dare I say seemed OVER staffed.
  4. Yeah there were no signs of life there yesterday either. No workers, no sign of trains, etc. Hopefully they get it back up and running by memorial day weekend. I know I mentioned the lack of shade structures for Catwoman, but the "new" Gotham City is a**. No batmobile, you take out the original Batman entrance and replace it with that cheap sign, etc. It's frustrating seeing some of the improvements SFFT and SFSTl are doing and then seeing...that.
  5. Visited the park today for the first time in the Covid era. Great day overall. Made reservations and while they were asking if you had made them as you were walking into the temp screening tent, at no point was I actually asked to show one. Mask wearing was good overall. All the operators were enforcing it. Everything seemed to be up and running except obviously Mindbender and Joker Chaos Coaster. Got my first ride on Catwoman and it was pretty good. It is absolutely pathetic they have zero shade structures for the queue. Only major (non water) rides I didn't hit up were Scorcher and Acro
  6. So I was trying to look at mine earlier and kept getting 404 messages too, but when I changed my rankings from private to public I can see them now. Didn't realize private meant even from myself
  7. Yeah "Cedar Point" and "Challenging location" don't exactly seem like they go together, unless they're going to put it on that island. Maybe Morey's is going to build this as the 2 pier coaster that the GCI they had planned like 10 years ago was supposed to be.
  8. So as an update to this...it turns out it's true. In the new book "Kings Island A Ride Through Time" there are multiple quotes from several CF execs that confirm it. CGA was going to get a B&M hyper in 2020 with the name "Megabyte." Eventually the projected costs became greater than what they wanted to spend at CGA so they decided to build the new B&M at KI instead. Based on the interviews it seems corporate essentially called up KI and said "we're sending you a B&M in 2020. Let's figure out what we want it to be." That project eventually became the giga coaster Orion.
  9. It's pretty cool to see how far it has come since they originally closed the amusement park, but it still sucks to see all those abandoned ride sites.
  10. I also just finished the KI book. Some great info. Don't know if I buy the "why Orion is smaller than Fury" story though . Also looks like California's 20+ year streak of not having a B&M hyper is not going to end anytime soon.
  11. I've always felt that was the case. A ride with those trims still has enough speed to "slip" through brakes because they are wet? Ok.
  12. ^Nighthawk at least got a lot of parts from Firehawk's closure, although Cedar Fair is more likely to put a big new ride into Carowinds and they could easily replace Nighthawk with one. How about Batwing closes first but Nighthawk is actually removed first
  13. My only visit to Tunica was back in 2009 when Harrah's was still open. Even then it seemed like it was a dying town with more and more casinos opening across the country. Is there even really a demand for things there? I mean 30 minutes outside of downtown Memphis, will locals even really want to go out there?
  14. This is my concern. It wouldn't be the first time something like that would have happened. Wild Adventures seemed to do pretty well until their owner bought Cypress Gardens and sunk a ton of money into it as well, for example.
  15. The new trains are definitely a big improvement, but I didn't have issues with either the Arrow train on Zoomerang when it was at Alabama Adventure or the Vekoma train on Boomerang at SFFT
