  1. I don't think it's a secret that the BGT operations have left A LOT to be desired the last few years. It's really quite disappointing as the park is actually quite amazing, but if it's hot out and you're dealing with full queues with lackluster employees it can be annoying. Also, it's dumb putting ChickFilA in parks, I'm saying it!!!!
  2. Forget Halloween. DIN TAI FREAKING FUNG coming to disney was the best announcement of the day!!!! Not just for you guys over in SoCal who already have one like 20min away, but to me this is a gateway to getting one in FLORIDA!!!!!
  3. Yeah, it's common to name everyone remotely related to something, but also common to have most of that thrown out. Like if someone chokes and dies while a server looks on at Outback Steakhouse are you going to sue Icon Park?!!? Maybe, but they don't have direct culpability.
  4. ^The small drop tower really is the hidden gem of that park!
  5. ^That's a bummer to hear, I really need the parks to get back to where they were pre-pandemic!
  6. I think it's going to be a problem moving forward that a lot of the parks instituted annoying "covid" procedures and policy's and they're just going to stick around cause it's easier and cheaper!
  7. Maybe once they get their population vaccinated with a slightly more effective vaccine they will open up more.
  8. Just throwing in my opinion of Emperor. The ride itself is actually really good and probably in the top of the Dive Coasters. I love that it doesn't have a midcourse or the same repeat sections that so many of the dive coasters have. They do need to theme it up a bit more though, and KT and I got super sunburned while at the park!
  9. It's not a "park" the way they're talking about it on the news. Icon Park is just an outdoor area of I-Drive that has a ton of restaurants and shops NOT ASSOCIATED IN ANYWAY with the Slingshot Group/Funtime/Free fall accident. We eat at the Carrabbas, Outback, Shake Shack, and Yard House there all the time.
  10. ^Exactly. ^^Yeah, they know that, they're just showing that due to the tilt PLUS the forces on the brakes is why he slipped out.
  11. It's a horrifying and terrible accident. Clearly the restraint and body shape of the boy did not work. A seatbelt might have helped but we have seen this exact accident before. I'm sure we'll see FunTime add seatbelts to all of their towers now but we also have to be careful with OTSR's positioning.
  12. Two things... 1. It's crazy that Cafe Mickey is finally disappearing!!!! 2. How do we still not have a date for Avengers Campus!?!?!
  13. I really loved Lost Gravity and was surprised not to see more pop up. I think it will be great for the park.
  14. From what I'm reading it's mostly elderly and care home people getting sick because for some reason they didn't vaccinate them!!?? This is a disaster for not just the park but HK in general. Multinational companies don't want to do business there anymore cause it's such a strict mess!
  15. I haven't really heard of that. There are some decent in room babysitting options in Orlando with reputable people that will watch your kids while you go hit up the parks.
  16. Maybe they're putting all their eggs in the "we'll allow foreign workers back" basket?!!? That's insane!
  17. Honestly, the FL parks are no longer dead any day. Are you talking about this Monday valentines day, Monday the 21st which is a holiday or the 28th? That will change my answer.
  18. THIS!!! We have stayed at a TON of properties in the area and this one is by far the best.
  19. ^I didn't notice any difference. By far LR seems to be the hardest one for people to get on because of the employees.
  20. ^I haven't been following the UAE stuff as much recently, but I can tell you from past visits that I wouldn't just race through the parks. IMG really blew us all away as they had some really fun rides and attractions as well as amazing food. Motiongate and Bollywood can probably be done in a day, but again, there are such bizarre attractions in Bollywood that you won't find anywhere else that it's worth taking some time. I mean, there's a ride where you're playing Cricket!!!?? The woodie has been testing for months, but this is also the country that has a giant coaster that's been sitting around for years so who knows. Please let us know how your trip goes!
