  1. Came to the park today (Sunday MDW) with my friend who is headed to Army training this week. He's from NYC so this was his first time--he loved it, and it helped that he got in free today with his military ID. Super light crowds with the rain, but many of the coasters were still running! We had such a fun ride on Magnum in the rain, and the tunnel effects were great to see working. I really feel like the park is cleaned up a ton this year. They really seem to be catering to EVERYBODY and wanting to provide the best day experience no matter what. Thunder Alley was cool. Frontier Town has been revived. The employees were all super lively and friendly. Oh, and for the record, after riding all the coasters except dragster (which is weird because he was afraid to ride it even though his first coaster ever was Kingda Ka), his top three were 1)SV 2)Gatekeeper 3)Magnum
  2. Having worked MF, I must admit that the operator controls around FL are pretty weak. Additionally, all of us had different methods with fast lane and how to dump that group into the real line. My strategy was to "zipper" people in and stay as close to a zero discrepancy as possible so that the Fast Lane line was almost close to empty--the strategy was pretty much the same as getting on to a busy highway. I also noticed that, surprisingly and more often than not, MF had a short line. Only during a "sweet spot" did Fast Lane make a real difference. Otherwise, people were mad they spent their money if the park was empty OR they would be mad they would have to wait in Fast Lane for 30 minutes.
  3. I don't know if I actually feel the way I do about what I'm about to say, but I get really excited about the improvements to the park outside of the main event. I'm looking forward to this announcement.
  4. First time I ever thought I would legitimately puke on a coaster was also Firehawk at KI this year. It was a hot day and we were tired. Took a break from rides for about two hours before closing out the night on Mystic Timbers and Diamondback but before that, every step I took I thought I was going to vom.
  5. On the real though does Knotts have Xlerator driers as opposed to Dyson airblades (version 1 or 2)?
  6. I was at CP by Saturday and the rain actually cleared a ton of people out by the end of the night. Millennium barely had a line for the last 30 minutes of operation. Shows how much those wait times mean.
  7. Looks pretty nutty. Crazy to think that a park like Cedar Point can continue to introduce coasters that people can go and ride and come off saying "this one is my favorite." When people ask me what the best ride at Cedar Point is, I already have a hard enough time figuring out what to tell them. As far as a name goes, I see this as a candidate to be named "Renegade". Fits in to the teasers. Although I'm not sure how the corporation would feel doubling down on that name.
  8. Whoever is designing the merchandise that CP has been dishing out recently has been doing a fabulous job. Where at some parks I visit I have trouble finding something I would even consider wearing, CP has me struggling to not buy everything.
  9. Cedar Point because I work there. Realistically I want to go to Kentucky Kingdom for me next "new" park and stop by KI and HW while I'm down there. Even more realistically I'll probably go to Waldameer.
  10. You also can grab the Maverick ornament at the end of the ride in its gift shop.
  11. Ya hate to see it. I can't wait to get out of the US someday to see with my own eyes just how different other parks are in regards to "guest safety". I get it though...you really got to cover your tracks if you don't want to lose a lot of money. Take any measures necessary just to keep people happy and coming back. Us on here, we know it all to well...roller coasters aren't dangerous but everybody thinks that they are and it hurts to hear others say it.
  12. Looks nuts. Pardon my ignorance but is this project feasible? How likely will we see this completed in full?
  13. Waited 2.5 hours for a "70-90minute" wait yesterday. Didn't even get to see what was in the shed--the video occurred right before and after we left the brake run. I'm pretty disappointed that it was just a video, but it could have been cool but I guess I wouldn't know. Fast lane was kept at 0, which might explain why we waited in the regular line for 2+ hours.
