  1. The giant was a total rebuild, there is no original track left on the ride. It was replaced with full on steel. The topper track simply sits on top of the laminate layer and replaces the running layer of the laminates. giant is a whole other beast from rattler now
  2. ahh hell .. well I might be able to squeeze this in .. I haven't done this event since ... well 2005 i think.
  3. Try to fly into SNA (Orange County/John Wayne) if flying, it's the closet airport to Anaheim. And fairly reasonable rental car rates. There is also LAX and LGB (Long Beach), but LAX has all rental cars offsite and it's a pain to get in and out of. I've never flown in or out of LGB. Also don't forget, Knott's and Adventure City are within 5 miles of Disney (on the same street even)
  4. I just hope the Starliner is saved .. It would look good at one of the smaller Orlando attractions, but I doubt any have room .. FunSpot near Old Town may ... but who knows .. send it to Texas! I had such a blast on that ride in Feb .. the rest of the park was kinda "meh".
  5. The Cyclone is owned by the city, Astroland just had an agreement to operate the ride, I'm sure they will find an operator for the next season. Also, the Wonder Wheel is not apart of Astroland. Deno's Wonder Wheel park is safe and is not owned by Thor, that park has not been sold as reveled in a few news releases and will be operating in 2009 from all knowledge. Astroland consists of the log flume, tower area between the fences by the Wonder Wheel and across the street from the Cyclone. So the Miler coaster is safe as well as the Spook-A-Rama dark ride across from the Wonder Wheel. Sadly the cool little Big Apple coaster is apart of Astroland .. I love that turntable.
  6. Western Playland is in Sunland Park, NM now .. just over the border from El Paso .. they have a Galaxi and Miler coaster ... Also Oasis Lanes in El Paso has a Wisdom Dragon Wagon .... the place is a bit strange however ....
  7. sadly, THBS at SFOT when it opened for the media ... May 16th. Up next .. Dorney!
  8. Do ACME stores in PA still offer the discount tickets to Dorney? I know GIANT offers Hersheypark discount tickets, but we are looking for some Dorney ones as well and saw that last year they offered discount tickets. Or any other place in the Allentown area offer discounts?
  9. I forgot about this place, I guess I'll have to check it out when I'm there in 2 short weeks!
  10. if you have the ability, buy the flashpass online prior to your visit so you are sure you will get one. We already have purchased ours and we don't visit until Aug. 4th
  11. Since your staying on property .. make use of the EMH (Extra Magic Hours), it helped us alot to get in extra rides on Everest and other Magic Kingdom stuff
  12. You can't forget the best kept Disney Secret .. DVC ... sorry .. I had to and you should understand once you return
  13. We hit up Magical Midway and the StarFlyer .. fun ride .. scary as hell if you have a fear of heights like I do. The slingshot is the same as at Old Town .. but they are great rides. Other than that .. it was kinda small .. big go kart tracks and an S&S Space Shot .. and kinda ghetto the night we were there.
  14. Let's see ... it 1) Makes the loading faster due to people not having to secure articles on the dock and getting out of the car 2) secures YOUR valuables from people taking them off the dock 3) keeps the ride crew from having responsibility of any loose articles 4) secures the loading dock from loose articles that could cause someone to trip or blocking the access for handicapped people Frankly, I don't see where your argument lies .. sure it's a money thing .. but then again .. these things are for YOUR safety, and I don't mind paying for that IF a need too. Also, I remember taking my camera bag on dock of Wild One and SROS at SFA this August .. hell .. both SFA and SFGAdv had no issues with loose articles on any ride we rode, except for Kingda Kaka .. which was expected since Top Thrill Dragster has the same policy.
