  1. So a couple of really quick thoughts. I went on Saturday night and while I overall had a good time I couldn’t help but feel a little disappointed. There were some logistical issues like running out of souvenir hot chocolate cups. This is understandable and all but then to have only one stand offering paper cups (all the other stands were only offering refills for cups they had sold out of) didn’t make any sense. The light show is massively disappointing and beyond tacky. I expected to see the whole area have dancing lights to a festive theme, what I saw was a giant video wall of Santa doing “the nae nae”. And my last point, and this opinion I got from comparing the experience to the much smaller Six Flags St. Louis. But Great America is just a little too big for this event. It’s impossible to avoid the dead space and closed rides in between areas. This hopefully will get better as the event grows year to year. Again we had a good time, and top points to the Santa meet and greet on the train. That was really well done. Hopefully next year once Max Force is done they can have the train and the observation tower open for this event!
  2. If you consider GateKeeper as a replacement for Disaster Transport, Valraven as a replacement of Wild Cat, and obviously Steel Vengeance as a replacement of Mean Streak (Do I really need to mention Mantis..) there has been a zero net gain of coasters at CP since Maverick in 2007. Dont get me wrong, there has been an improvement, a VAST improvement but a zero net gain of coasters. Not complaining I just think thats an interesting fact when adding up how many coasters CP has. Meanwhile, here is a pretty cool video showcasing Mean Streak's POV re-timed to Steel Vengeance pacing: [youtu_be] [/youtu_be]
  3. I'm not going to lie, I kind of like this ^ idea. Except maybe not as a Dino replacement, maybe just have a Wakanda section next to Africa. I would be down with that.

  5. I believe the name is intended to be storm themed (i.e. Hurricane Force Five) and they are waiting to release the name due to the current situation in Texas. Whats funny is that if you look at what ride King Chaos replaced (an Intamin looping starship) This is basically going back to that same ride, considering ride experience and ride motion.
  6. Ugh, not that I am too sad about losing king chaos, I'm more upset with the idea that whatever they replace it with won't have a Mardi-gras theme. I know that SF isn't the best at theming lands to begin with but the Mardis-Gras area isn't even that old! Already it's lost the restaurant to Jonny Rockets, the rockin tug, Ragin Cajun (Though I'll give joker a pass here because the purple and green fits in rather well) and now king chaos! The area is officially dead. If it is a skywarp I will be excited but I was just hoping that it would have gone into southwest territory (finally filling the old wagon pad) and been themed to a lasso or something. Also I can almost guarantee you will not see an S&S Super L in any six flags park. Way to expensive. The ride system on that is essentially a coaster with magnetic launching. Super loops and Larson loops work the same way, where the train is just part of a continues set of wheels, which is much easier and cheaper to move around a loop than launching.
  7. Its largely queue line but also has a maintenance building (which used to have its own little bone-yard around it) and a newer building that was home to a haunt. Which by the way, they are not using that building during this years haunt, correct?
  8. I thought crowds were WAY higher than expected. Weather turned out perfect and nearly all the schools were off leading to a home run opening day for great America. One question though, do any of the other six flags parks have the stupid bottle flip game? And $12.99 for a beer? Are they crazy?? So stupid Criminal
  9. ^^ Like, while riding?? That's actually pretty dangerous. Given the old photo eye system that ride uses for blocks it does not take much to obstruct them and cause a setup. Your friend is an idiot and I'm glad they got caught.
  10. Im all about this! Just don't let the Von Roll enthusiasts over in the CP thread get wind of this.
  11. Yeah sorry, but no. They have already made some pretty drastic changes to the ride structure. I don't see the new layout being anything like the original. Which is a good thing.
  12. June 2009 was my first trip ever to kings island. After putting it off long as long as possible we finally decided to give Son of Beast a go. Maybe five trains after ours they take the ride down. As we now know it never reopened. My first ride on SOB was one of its last.
