  1. How are the queue times on Haunt weekends compared to the normal season? Heading there on Saturday for the first time for the Haunt and not really sure what to expect in terms of queue times?
  2. 2007 - Maverick 2013 - Gatekeeper 2015 - Rougaru, if that counts 2017 - Mystic Timbers Unfortunately missed out on Banshee in '14 and Valravn in '16.
  3. I like that layout. Looks a little wierd with such short trains though.
  4. That coaster is pretty nice, but yea I'd ditch the time twister trains. Facades on the mainstreet are good too, please continue!
  5. Really starting to shape up now, I wish you luck going forward.
  6. Or if you get a hand stamp, which they should give you when you walk out.
  7. Wow, that might be the greatest theme park skyline photo I've ever seen. Do you have the source?
  8. The log flume in the mountian that's currently being used for Volcano the Blast Coaster at KD is a commonly known one. Not quite as good of an example, but there is sill a small portion of the old Log Flume at Cedar Point visible from the Maverick queue. The station, and a small bit of track, is still visible from Son Of Beast at KI. Not sure if its still there, but at least up until a few years ago, the station platform and part of the launch system for Tidal Wave (the old Schwarzkopf shuttle) at CGA was still around. It's visible from many of the Vortex, now Patriot, POV's along with Google Earth/Maps. It would be interesting to see if anyone has pictures of this, it would probably be pretty easy to get from the entrance ramp of Vortex or the station platform.
  9. New rides look great, really add a lot of depth to the game. Hopefully I'll man up and buy in one of these days, lots of potential I think!
  10. Hey, did you guys realize they are building an RMC at Cedar Point? Maybe y'all should talk about that instead of boring things like skyrides and zipper pants.
  11. Cedar Fair did not kill Geauga Lake That's a matter of opinion one way or the other. People will debate that for decades to come. You can definitely say that Cedar Fair had no intention of helping the park thrive. Their actions back up that statement. In order for the park to thrive, they would of have to significantly reduce operating costs while still maintaining attendance. So essentially, remove rides but somehow still get people to attend. The park was doomed as soon as SF added 4 coasters in 5 years with no plan of how to manage the park and for no reason other than to "compete" with CP. It was probably the dirtiest, worst managed, poorly up kept parks in the country. I believe the Geauga expansion by SF is probably one of the dumbest business decisions in the industry, possibly ever. The additions combined with the poor operations drove away the local market for good and the additions were never strong enough to draw people away from CP. Remember, in the years SF owned Geauga, CP added Mantis, Millennium Force, WT, and Top Thrill. Absolutely no way a park could compete with that in a similar market. If the park maintained its 80's and early 90's size and growth, it might still be around today. However, I believe the park eventually would have been marginalized by CP and Kennywood if it stayed small and not been operated with extreme care.
  12. From my experience with coaster models, having rigid and strong track is just as important as reducing friction. In your case both the track itself should be strong to retain is shape as well as its width. Also, over time and test runs, if the track is super strong, it will begin to lose its shape and therefor further reduce its efficiency. Being able to balance strength and flexibility is quite tough on its own, not to mention building the rest of the model itself.
