  1. The Pinfari death coaster is gone. It was replaced by a bunch of new kiddie rides and a petting zoo.


    Soon to be opened death coaster is now at Keansburg Amusement Park. Should be open within the month. Was it really that bad?


    I think it might have gotten new trains near the end? When I rode it at Beech Bend in like 2004 with the old trains it was terrifying. I just remember half the seats being roped off.

  2. The CP ERT more than made up for those Six Flags closed rides earlier in the trip. Was an awesome way to end the trip.


    re: Hades 360, I loved Hades opening year. Still liked it a lot in 2007, though it had gotten rougher. After riding it this year though it's going to drop WAY down my list. The new section was great, but much of the old section was back breakingly bad. And I really like rough aggressive rides.

  3. $129 for the Winter Classic and $28 for the OHL Double Header (AHL game was sold out).


    I wonder how well attended the AHL game will be? I know it's pretty doubtful that I'm going to bother going down for the AHL game. Especially with it being two days before the winter classic.

  4. Silver lining of the lockout this year was another shot at the ticket lottery for the winter classic. This time my father and brother both got in, so I'll be going to the new years game between Toronto and Detroit.


    This season might not be done yet, but I'm already looking forward to new years 2014.

  5. TTD and MF shut down in the rain because rain drops at 120/93 mph hurts like a mofo. I've ridden MF in a very light drizzle and it was unbearable.


    The bugs in the evening can be terrible as well!


    Don't wait for the front seat on MF unless you want to eat about a thousand bugs.


    Not that I would recommend actually waiting for the front anyways, since it's a really long wait, and the back is a much better ride.

  6. One of the photos that showed the estimated wait time for Gemini was 2 hours caused me to laugh. Of all the visits to Cedar Point I have never seen the queing lines ever get full


    I have once, on a halloweekends Saturday. On those days they often fill the park to capacity. And if Gemini's queue hits the midway, that means pretty much every ride will have a full queue.


    No surprise that day we bailed and went back to our hotel room for most the day.

  7. Adams - Quenneville: I don't know how you could argue with this. The Blackhawks were the most consistent team in the league with an incredible start to the season, and were on top the entire year.


    The award doesn't go the best team though, it's the best coach. Considering how good that team is, I think it should go to one of the coaches that turned around bad teams into contenders. I'd think Therien in Montreal would be a front runner.

  8. Would THAT many people STILL rather taer down Mean Streak than see what Rocky Mountain can do with it?


    Given the amount of space the ride takes up, tearing it down and building something new on it's spot could be a better use of the space. Though an iron horse treatment could be awesome as well. Either option would be nice.


    However, I don't really think either option is imminent. The ride is still in decent enough shape, so I don't think it's demise is a huge priority.

  9. The height limits went from above 130 cm with the old trains, to 140 - 185 cm, yes you read right, not only did they raise the lower limit which means that some have to wait a bit longer to ride it, but they put a very low upper limit (lover than Atlantis Adventure even), so sorry tall people. Wonder how strict they are though, Lotte World is very strict, there might be a chance that Nagashima Spaland may be as well

    Source is the ride page at: http://www.nagashima-onsen.co.jp


    If true on the new height limits, I'm glad I got to ride it when I did.


    The trains look like an improvement, though I don't like the look of the shin restraints.

  10. Beat Duke Nukem Forever last night; the final boss was pretty easy compared to some others in the game.

    Not sure what all the hate was about with the game; it was pretty much everything I expected from a DN game; lots of gore and the occasional wisecrack from Duke.


    It would have been a decent game like 5-10 years ago. It was just kind of dated. As the stereotype vapor ware game, there was just no way that it was going to live up to the hype. It wasn't horrible by any means, but just not worth the wait.


    I found the same thing with Rage. So long in development, that it just felt flat.

  11. Not sure how it could be tested, but one that still comes up is Canada's Wonderland is moving to Niagara Falls. Maybe dig up the full page ad the park took out in local papers to say they were not going anywhere.


    I've heard that one as well. Another variant of it was that the park was going to move to Woodstock, Ontario. I believe the whole thing sourced around the fact that the land Canadas Wonderland sits on is now worth a fortune.

  12. It's definitely greed, but at the same time, NHL players don't make anywhere near some players in other sports. Look at Albert Pujols for example, or Peyton Manning, and the NFL season is only 16 games long.


    Hockey players are better off then football players on average. Football players don't have guaranteed contracts, and tend to have shorter careers.


    I had to dig through my browser history to find it, this is a decent comparison of the CBAs for the major pro sports leagues.
