  1. Happy that I'm going to Magic Mountain at the end of March, I'm glad that I had the chance to ride the original so I can see how much the ride really has improved!
  2. Does anyone know when CGA's opening day is for 2011, I'm planning on going to San Francisco over my spring break which is the week of March 27th and I was wondering when the park usually opens and stuff like that, I think I remember last year that weekend was when they opened but it was on Sunday? Do they usually open on a Sunday?
  3. Medusa at Six Flags Mexico. You can feel your brain rattle around inside of your head, you breath in Mexico City smog and it feels like it's gonna derail on every turn.
  4. Diamondback is definitely a HE haha Nice PTR though, I love Kings Island
  5. Yeah I have no idea why It's doing that because I definitely have it only uploaded once when I go to the edit the post. weird
  6. The Great Escape I'll first start off by saying that The Great Escape is a very beautiful park and the entrance area is simply stunning with the theming added to the buildings, it's something you wouldn't expect from Six Flags, and I like it The great escape has a cute little family atmosphere to it which kind of gives it it's own charm which I really liked about the place, everything just seems to fit and it works. Ride wise theirs not really anything too amazing, You have the comet which was pretty decent but I wasn't really feeling that well when we were at The Great Escape so the airtime made me feel like I was gonna puke, because of that I only rode once, but I'd love to come back and marathon, it is definitely a good ride from what I could tell from my one ride. The other thing I liked about the great escape is that it's one of those parks that the lines just don't get long, everything was a station wait besides the Alpine Bobsled because of the horrible capacity but hey I'll let it fly. It might be kind of hard to amuse yourself at the great escape for an entire day so it's best to just go for a few hours, unless you're also going to the waterpark, then I'm sure you could make it the entire day, but if your planning and wondering how long you need, we were there for about 4 hours and saw the entire place. One more thing I would like to point of was the S&S double tower called Sasquatch, I'm not sure what Sasquatch has to do with a drop tower but I loved the name it was just quirky and cool haha. Also it was probably the most intense S&S turbo drop I've ever been on, some of them are kinda lame, but this one was on full force grab you're balls and yank you down kinda drop. Really good drop tower! Tree's are everywhere Tree's are everywhere Tree's are everywhere Tree's are everywhere Tree's are everywhere Tree's are everywhere Tree's are everywhere Things at this park just looked nice, starting with this sign an Arrow looper, kinda on the rougher side, scratch that really on the rougher side The paint looked fantastic though Ticket booths They only have one train and foot pedal release restraints but we only had to wait for 2 trains. Kinda crawled through the corkscrews This ride was closed when we walked by.. But it was testing so we stuck around Canyon Blaster. Apparently it was closed because some guy tried to get out of the restraint while the ride was going because it hurt his legs, the op's were talking and I guess they banned him for a year, this is why you should always stay in your seat kids! but it opened and ran one cycle (which we were on) then it broke again. not sure if it reopened, but nonetheless we got the credit! another one of these lovely things, I don't mind boomerangs, it's just when so many parks have them they become repetitive and boring. This one wasn't half bad, they don't bother me half as much as SLC's and weird wooden torture devices like Medusa at Six Flags Mexico (yes I've been there, and no I'm not going back, EVER) call me crazy but I like the way the wraps look on this ride. we've all seen a boomerang before, but have you seen THIS boomerang? huh? huh? They obviously didn't care much about the girl in the front with her camera out we waited 50 minutes for this ride. the line moved veryyyyyyy slow, and the last row was closed off for some reason these things are pretty fun though so it's ok blame Canada! blame Canada!some of the waterpark, with ze comet in the back some of the waterpark, with ze comet in the back ACE It's a fun little zippy ride He does the ACER pose better then I can..... red train blue train this ride looks so much like it has a wooden frame even though it's steel overall it's the star attraction at The Great Escape They had this weird alice and wonderland thing you go through here and there's a room with an oversized kitchen table set then you walk outside around a garden and that's about it stole a little girl and got my credit, these are by far my worse favorite kiddie coaster. I hate how some parks claim you need a kid when other parks with the exact same model say you don't I like this bridge only the best drop tower name ever everything looked brand new clicker. they used these at SFKK too I've now seen all types of S&S towers This is what you see when you walk in the park, only difference is were leaving now some random pig Sasquatch! I have to say though, those seem like some pretty ugly/dull colors. but whatever I love the Sasquatch!
  7. Thanks everyone, I'm working on TGE right now so that should be up soon. Le Monstre is one of those rides that I just like because it terrifies me, It IS one of the roughest, shuffliest, back bending rollercoasters I've been on, but something about the ride just clicked with me making me love it to death, I feel like im going to die while i'm on it and when a ride does that to me I love it because most rides just don't do that anymore. Like every time I ride X2 (which is my favorite roller coaster) it scares me to death when the seats flip over at the bottom of the first drop and that's what i love in a rollercoaster. It's sorta how I like the Beast at KI, one of the roughest rides in the world but it's a ride you just gotta love for the experience. Robby "There's a few exceptions in life" Mitsos
  8. See I really don't care to much about flats unless there like a screamin swing or a drop tower, I don't think the flats would have really made that drastic of a difference, but that's just the kind of person I am, i dont hate CW though I'm completely planning on going back soon to see if I missed anything. And yeah that S&S tower at La Ronde just looks ridiculous, I didn't ride it however because I didn't think it was worth waiting for.
  9. See alot of people disagree, but when I judge a theme park I judge it for what I like, which is thrill rides, I mean sure the atmosphere and operations have something to do with the decision, but to me the rides are the most important because that's what I'm there for. To me canadas wonderland just doesn't cut it right now, maybe if cf invests into the park then a few years from now my opinion might be changed. I like La Ronde better because even though it's kinda small and the operations sucked, In my opinion they had way better rides. When I was at canadas wonderland I was literally dreading riding everything knowing how horrible most of the coasters would be, it's something to brag about if you have 15 coasters and at least like half of them are reridable, but canadas wonderland had maybe 3 coasters I would reride, the rest were just downright uncomfortable and not fun. But that's my opinion on the two.
  10. Oh don't worry I'll be back soon,my parents LOVE Toronto, the only flat we rode was the claw of doom thingy by Behemoth which was decent, I really wanted to ride shockwave but I guess we got carried away with other things, just more of a reason to return I guess. See that's what one would think, I was almost sure I would like Behemoth alot more, but there was just something about Goliath that made it completely awesome! I would say it has more Airtime then Behemoth and that's probably the reason why
  11. La Ronde La Ronde. Much better then Canada's Wonderland in my opinion, I tend to like Six Flags more then Cedar Fair although I don't think I saw anything anywhere that even mentioned that this place had anything to do with Six Flags, but hey my SFKK season pass worked.. I have to say I really enjoyed my time at La Ronde and would love to go back sometime soon. Operations at La Ronde could use some work. Le op's clearly didn't care all to much about meeting the hourly capacity of the ride and the line could stretch all the way out of the park and they wouldn't do much about it. This caused me to not love La Ronde but just merely like it. I mean some employees were better then others, but overall the majority just kind of sucked, and they sat in plastic chairs and talked instead of doing their jobs. Literally when the ride would get back to the station everyone would get off and leave the station and they wouldn't open the gates for at least like another 45 seconds, meanwhile they were all sitting in chairs chatting it up, and the flash pass people were clogging up the line. La Ronde has a ton of food choices, I wish I could have tried more then I did. They even have a Mcdonalds, which is awesome because Mcdonalds is awesome and it wasn't even that expensive! Le cha ching! Credit wise I didn't do so well, Ednor (The new SLC) was running one train and had a 2 hour wait, we got in line and it wasn't moving at all so I said screw that, and we never came back, besides I was still feeling the bashes I got from the SLC at Canada's Wonderland. I didn't get the boomerang credit either because everytime we got in line it broke down and then the 3rd time we got in line it started raining and we left the park. Also I didn't ride Dragon (I think?) because I didn't know it was there. It's alright though because I got on all the important rides like.... GOLIATH! The french pronounce it like "gunyick" not even joking it was so weird, even the pre recorded spiel in the station said it like that. Anyway, THIS RIDE IS AMAZING! Better then Diamondback and Behemoth put together, and even I thought I would never say that knowing how much I worship both of those. Seriously Don't think this ride is meh because it's not even a true hyper coaster, It grabs you by the balls and takes you for one hell of a ride. Might be the ride with the most airtime that I've been on, every single hill even the turnaround gives sweet sweet air in the last row. Screw the people that say it has an unoriginal layout, I don't need anything but awesome airtime hills, and that's pretty much what Goliath is. Match made in heaven. French Batman, a little rough around the edges but definitely very very intense like I've heard. it also had a really long line, popular with the Canadians Le Cobra was better then I expected and I actually enjoyed it, I had the expectation of it being like an "Iron Wolf" Le Monstre. Ok, I was sure this ride was gonna suck, but it's soooooooooooooo good, I don't even know why, It's like the beast all rough and outta control except there's actually some airtime and the drops are really steep and the entire ride is just crazy and insane, this ride literally scared me that's how f&%ked up and awesome it is. I LOVE LE MONSTRE and I was 99% sure I would never say that. La Ronde is full of suprises Navigating La Ronde is pretty simple seeing as the whole park is like one straight pathway. One other thing I liked alot about La Ronde is that fact that it's located in the actual city of Montreal, compared to being an hour away in the middle of nowhere like say Great Adventure? Entrance, I have to say this is one of my favorite looking main entrances of any amusement park, there's just something about it. Canadians have DOUBLE BIG MACS! Yes I ate one and it was delicious! Everyone knows about the RCT monorail at La Ronde They have a line jump task force, you're suppose to call the number. I wonder if anyone actually does? The Tampon machine Star of the show. Goliath Cool Beans dude French lesson for the day The train FLIES over these hills, my sister and I came up with the conclusion that the train looked like a bunny just hopping over all the hills. Merci! The new SLC Lots and lots of interesting facts and such in the queue area Le Namtab Jelly Bean from hell Misters were kinda pathetic The GP seemed to like it Always hated this part of SLC's One of the best parts of Goliath heading into the parking lot to get awesome shots of Orgasm: The Ride First some support hugging And some licking This turn around might not look like much but it's fantastic! This drop out of the turnaround is probably my favorite part of the ride Hello everyone, go to La Ronde and ride this ride! The transitions are awesome partners in crime orgasm right there curvy bits some bird made Goliath it's home The entire ride I have to say I was skeptical that Goliath would kinda suck like Raging Bull does, but it ended up whooping some major a$$ Riders enjoying Goliath the ole white knuckle journey fence got in the way again with the dang fence When I make a PTR I always try to get the most pictures of rides that I feel other people didn't include many pictures of, in this case It's Goliath. For anyone that's been on it before, what do you think of it? I really don't know if I like the old or new B&M hyper trains better The first drop is actually really good even though it's not completely 200ft like other hypers airtime galore pure floater goodness there's also some areas that provide ejector air oh look Goliath goes 90 DEGREES! sick of the Goliath photos yet? No? GOOD! almost a full train I liked this little hump at the end alot the twisty part is also very good First drop goodness I'm running out of Goliath captions Goliath Photos are taking over the world Ok, last one Toboggan Nordique, we rode this first thing in the morning to avoid the hour long line it gets. another B&M This one was actually very very good. So, we were dancing in line and the people on the stairs over there tried to be sneaky and take a picture of us, like how dare right? So I turn around and I'm like "Smileeeeeeee" little did I know my camera was in video mode, so you get this photo instead. Incase you forgot what a Namtab looks like Le Cobra The restraints were interesting not quite the airtime that skyrider at CW gave, but still good. Incase you forgot the name of the ride weird restraint MC DONALDS'S!!! "Le Breakdowneveryfiveminutessowecan'tgetthecredit" This was in line for attempt two on the boomerang I believe the train has some weird chocolate milk theme going on or something, it was strange. I actually really liked this ride However the restraints hurt a bit Le Monstre is a really good ride, I don't care what anyone says Interesting that one side opened a year before the other Don't give a little girl the camera Le Amazing, I hated this ride just because it beat X2 in the Tournament of Thrills, but now that I've ridden it I love it we rode 3 times Observation tower Ednor, I have to say I really like how the ride is pretty much completely over the water I miss Goliath Random souvenir bottle photo on our third attempt at the boomerang the sky got really dark and it started raining, closing the rides. At this point we decided we'd had enough of La Ronde and called it a day.
  12. Thanks, and yeah CW I find similar to KI but also better, they have one really awesome ride and the rest are kind of just meh. Kings Island has a few that are actually fun though. Thankfully CF has added a quality coaster to the lineup at CW.
  13. Hello Everyone, This is my first PTR ever posted to TPR, so I hope it turns out well. Anyway in the Beginning of August my family went on a mini trip to Toronto, Montreal, and Lake George NY, to grab a few credits and make some use of that Cedar Fair Platinum Pass I spent so much money on. 1) Canada's Wonderland 7/30 & 7/31 (In This Post) 2) La Ronde 8/2 (on page 1) 3) The Great Escape 8/3 Canada's Wonderland So Canada eh? Basically I'm not much of a fan of Canada's wonderland, I mean the atmosphere is definitely nice, and some parts of the park are VERY beautiful and shaded unlike some Cedar Fair properties, but the ride selection is somewhat lacking for me. I tend to be a person that goes to theme parks for rides as a priority, don't get me wrong it's excellent that have a nice pretty park but the ride selection really could use some work, I felt like I was going on rough/boring ride after ride and it got old very fast, there are a few exceptions but for the most part everything was just kinda "dull" Pretty much the only reason I wanted to come to Canada's wonderland was for Behemoth, and what a ride it is! My sister and Myself (who I normally go to parks with) are freaks about B&M hypers, I mean we worship them. So going in I had some pretty high expectations for Behemoth, thankfully the ride delivered. Behemoth is PACKED with airtime, while still having a pretty interesting ending and not being completely unoriginal. Alot of people prefer the back row on most hypers, but with the newer train design I feel that Behemoth and Diamondback shine the best when ridden in the front 2 rows, at the top of every hill you're literally thrown from your seat with some nice long sustained floater air, and airtime is the name of the game with Behemoth. This is a solid coaster for me, and I was glad it turned out to be so good. We rode Behemoth 9 times during our stay in Toronto, the line was normally about 20-30 minutes long. Now it gets ugly. Pretty much every other ride bashed my head, with a few exceptions. I'll only mention a few notable ones, because talking about every ride would take to long to type out. Skyrider- The Togo Stand-up, This ride was good in some ways and bad in others, I really liked the airtime bits because it feels awesome while standing up, however some of the transitions and the trick track were just rather painful for me. Nothing too serious, but It in the long run it's one of the better coasters at Canada's Wonderland Wild Beast - bumpidty bumpity bump. Not enjoyable whatsoever. Flight Deck - I've been on a few SLC's but this one just ripped me a new one. It reminded me of T2 and how much I got beaten to death on it, Once we hit the breaks I thought I was seriously going to start crying because I bashed my neck so many times. One of the worst SLC's I've been on. Vortex - Seeing as this is the same ride as Flight Deck at Kings Island I was excited to ride it because I love Flight Deck. WRONG! This one was so much rougher and jerkier, plus the seat seemed so much more uncomfortable. I don't know why this one sucked so much but I was definitely disappointed. Back Lot Stunt Coaster - This one didn't do the fire thing like the one at Kings Island, but I really like these little clones, their zippy and fun, It draws a pretty big crowd though. Well I think that's enough, one more thing I forgot to mention is the second day we were at CW we spent most of the day at the water park, which was decent enough. Still nothing like my home park SFGAm and Hurricane Harbor though Moving onto the Pictures. 07ulsl2f.bmp Here we are, Canada's Wonderland! First things first, Behemoth! I really enjoy the new style B&M hyper trains. Every one has this picture, so I might as well too! I'm actually capable of jumping over 6 people at a time. Me and my sister Skyrider and its cute little bunny hops Oh you totally got me you trickster Best part of the ride, balls to the sky! OoOh Artsy Typical CF trash can picture Lots and lots of trees at CW Vortex, the crappy arrow suspended coaster The Fly, one of the more enjoyable rides at CW The Bat, one of the more not enjoyable rides at CW It was a beautiful day Terror Nice little piggy Canadian Pride Looking at this picture just makes me cringe No ninja earings allowed on the ride please Mine buster, this one was just "ok" But what's that in the distance? Behemoth is here to save the day! One of my favorite pictures ever. This shows our love for Behemoth Arms up is the way to go! The water park is really the only area you can get decent shots of Behemoth mmmm, mmmmm tasty More Behemoth I do a little support hugging every now and then a little more behemoth The Trims from what I could tell were only turned on on the first hill in the line of 3, hardly noticeable though Yellow train getting some air I really liked this hammerhead or Bowtie or whatever it's called now a days Pesky birds all over the waterpark Those parabolic hills look might fine another train of riders getting ready to take the plunge Italian Job I'm the first person to ever take this photo This little hill provides a final moment of air Overall Behemoth was a much needed addition to CW's lineup This was about the only flat we rode, it wasn't all that great, I was expecting a little more then I got Dragon fire is just kinda meh Back to the goodies I'm melting, i'm melting! We got a whole Pizza for just 2 of us, which however is a typical meal for one ACEr signage Zamperla piece of crap, that we waited way to long for And this is the final photo.
  14. See that's why I got to thinking that it has to be something with that particular row, the water fins are the only explanation.
