    Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

  1. I was stuck on the Green Lantern at SFMM when my family was visiting on a vacation. I know way back when it first opened it had a problem with locking the car back into place once it was going into the station. Long story short, the cart kept going in place and then releasing itself probably about 20 times. It was weird, because after the fourth or fifth time the speakers automatically told the queue lines the ride was experience a technical difficulty and would reopen soon. It wasn't too long of a process, probably around ten minutes. Last year the platform on Delirium at Kings Island wou
  2. Forgive me if this has already been posted about, but I wanted to throw an idea out there about the entire Mantis transformations. If any part of the track was actually changed , I would really love to see the drop redone to become more steep. If that didn't happen I would at least hope the trim break might be removed... I think this would be the best area of the ride to change and would make the ride much more exciting. Looking forward to seeing whatever comes of this!
  3. I'll gladly be in the minority that says this ride looks AWESOME! I've watched the POV countless times, and I'm so tempted to make the trip to Carowinds someday soon! I love B&M. The speed of this ride alone makes me so excited- if they've made it to 95 mph why stop there? The color of the track is also very awesome. I love the underbelly color- it is such an awesome compliment to the ride. I've seen people ask this same question on this thread but I didn't know if anyone knew why B&M uses the 4-across seats on their giga coasters? I guess the only B&M giga coasters are at par
  4. When I visited yesterday, I noticed the same thing. To start, there is a sign posted near the entrance that was screwed in (clearly showing it wasn't a one day deal), that said "The Legend will operate with one train today". I thought it was kind of weird not to see another train on the transfer track. We had to wait a solid 25-30 minutes on a ride that would had been a walk on. Not realizing until reading what you said, I didn't know it was as serious. I asked one of the supervisors on the raven and she said it was on a one train operation for maintenance. I wonder what the issue co
  5. Can anyone tell me how the unlimited drink special works when you buy the ticket with it? We're ordering those off of the website for tomorrow. (tickets at Meijer are 49.99, but online you can get a ticket for the same price with "unlimited" drinks) Is is like a wristband? And where all can you get drinks from? I appreciate any information you guys have about the program!
  6. Not to backtrack here, but I really hope that the park will either use the Pilgrim's Plunge splash area or the building itself... Either that or remove the building and remaining pool area all together. I really doubt the park will leave the former ride area intact with such a massive new ride next to it. Excited for Thursday- we will know everything in a few short days! I really wanted to attend the media day, but I'm going to Cedar Point instead!
  7. I haven't had a chance to chime in yet, but I have been actively reading up on this thread and the 66 days at sea website! I'm really excited to see that Holiday World is finally getting a new roller coaster. I'm really surprised that with the success of the Voyage it took so long to build another coaster. I was surprised there wasn't a coaster built around 2011-2012, but the focus that was placed onto the water park was worthwhile in my opinion. I've always loved following coaster construction. Seeing something as small as the land clearing at the start of Kings Island's season last y
  8. This is completely opinion-based, however I would be very surprised to see if SFMM's rides each received less than an "A". Safety is always a top priority, and I really think that all parks (especially chain parks) strive for complete safety. Plus, the parks would receive plenty of time to prepare for an inspection and would most likely receive a pre operational inspection; where the inspector will simple note everything that needs to be completed before they'll complete a real inspection. (Please note- this is based solely on what I know of food establishment inspections in my home state, I'm
  9. Great point, however, if the new evac procedure was really as effective as they claim it to be, they would be able to get the ride down quickly. I feel like the first few times they were so unprepared. (leaving them stranded that long tells me nothing they had previously planned for had been effective.) If they were able to get the riders down within 20-30 minutes, the media would (I pray ) be less inclined to tell the story since it would be nothing more than a standard evacuation that could happen on any ride. I do understand how bad the ride really looks and sounds to those in SoC

  11. This whole situation really irritates me... As a PR student with ambitions to one day work in the amusement park field, I'm going to post a few of my rambles... First I feel that Worlds of Fun could have been much, much more effective when talking about the rides relocation, and the reasoning for the ride's troubled past. Would I have mentioned that CalOSHA wouldn't approve the ride? No. Would I have highlighted the extensive effort behind Cedar Fair's work to make sure they're safe? Absolutely. I feel that even if the park would have been given 30 seconds to speak of how the evacuat
  12. I'm glad to hear about the future and I wasn't knocking on you at all! I'm a PR student and I would love to someday have the job you have. I was just stating I haven't seen any hinting at new rides, that is all. I fully believe in the future of Holiday World, I don't want anyone to think differently!
  13. I really intended to add that into my comments. I really liked how compact the ride was, it added some uniqueness to it.
  14. I feel like sadly over the years I've lost touch with Holiday World. I'm not really sure what I've been missing out on, but in my complete honest opinion I think that the family feud has had nothing but a negative impact on Holiday World. Will had such an exciting, unique vision for the park and I really don't want that vision to be lost over greed. ' I'm sad that Holiday World let The Voyage's ranking slip. For years they were able to find a way to keep the ride above El Toro, but why did it slip this year? Why didn't they do enough to keep that ranking? Could they have invested more in ret
  15. I'm posting my comments merely on a discussion basis, and not as much on my knowledge for this subject. Is there any hope for Mantis to smooth out a little? Has it been that rough since it opened? I rode Mantis on Saturday and I was astonished on how rough, jerky and uncomfortable the ride experience was. I rode Riddler's Revenge last summer and I honestly can't remember it actually being painful. I don't remember too much about my experience on RR other than I thoroughly enjoyed the ride, and that it was my first stand up coasters. For ever B&M ride I've ever experienced, I can't
