  1. I was really hoping for something on the WoF side; however, it's about time OoF got some love. Looks like some much needed additions to the park.
  2. We went there a couple times last week and I noticed they were doing that. NEVER have I seen that on a ride that wasn't a coaster.
  3. I live in Kansas City and if you like water parks Oceans of Fun and Schlitterbahn KC are both fun parks to go to.
  4. I got stuck on the Sea Dragon at Worlds of Fun for over an hour many years ago. They lost power to the ride when it reached it's peak swing and we were stuck there swinging. At about 30 minutes in people started throwing up over the sides. It was horrible to say the least. If it would have been in the last few years I know many people would have sued the park. I used to love rides that would spin etc., but after that I can't go on many anymore without getting sick. It's amazing how your body will revolt against you for abusing it. I also rode Evil Knieval once as it started to hail. That crap hurt.
  5. Robb, that sucks man. When you get a large number of people in one place you are bound to find some individuals that are just idiots and don't know how to act. Sucks that you had to take it that far, but I understand. Every 6 months I go through my friend list and delete the idiots. From those of us that do know how to act, we appreciate the site and a place to be able to chat with others that love roller coasters. Thanks!
  6. I've only ever greyed out on one b&m and it was B:TR at Great Adventure. I've ridden 3 clones and that was the only one that has done that to me. I've ridden over 30 b&m's overall.
  7. For me it has to be The Wildcat at LC. I am pretty sure that having kids is going to be difficult now thanks to that ride. The sad part is I rode it again in the front row to see if it would be a smoother ride. It was not. A close second is Mean Streak. It is probably the biggest disappointment because it looks impressive, but is just painful overall.
  8. I'd recommend the CP hotels as well. The one time we didn't stay there we stayed at the Comfort Inn in Sandusky and it was the single worst hotel experience I've ever had.
  9. 10. Patriot 9. Hulk 8. Prowler 7. Nitro 6. MForce 5. Bizarro (SFNE) 4. Maverick 3. I305 2. El Toro 1. Boulder Dash
  10. As the previous poster attempted to point out, if you are members of certain clubs you can get them for much cheaper than that. Just trying to help you out. Hopefully you find someone to buy them.
  11. I always have sunglasses on and I have never used a strap with them. I have ridden many inverts, El Toro, Boulder Dash, Kingda Ka, I305, Bizarro, etc... with never an issue. The only time I felt they could fall off was on a couple flyers, but they didn't. With a strap you would be fine for sure, but even without it I would not worry about it.
  12. Same as the above poster, I'm curious on the new attraction. BelizeIt, when are you going to Vegas? My wife and I are going Oct. 19-24 and also staying at the Wynn. Looking forward to the rest of your photos.
  13. 1. Patriot 2. Batman (SFGadv) 3. Great Bear 4. DDragons (Fire) 4. 'Geist (BGW)
  14. Ditto. Park in the back lot because it is not crowded since most people don't know it's back there. Just follow the road all the way around past famous daves and keep going until you get to Soak City. Get on Dragster, which can be a crap shoot in the morning, and then I would work your way back towards maverick, then MF and go that direction.
  15. Any type of Ferris Wheel scares the crap out of me. Anything else I am good with.
  16. I would vote Prowler. I've ridden, EK, Roar (East), Wildcat and Lightning Racer (both sides) as well.
  17. I have a SF pass from SFStL and a Cedar Fair Platinum Pass from WoF.
  18. I agree with the previous two posts, I would have a day for each park. Sea World only has a few "rides" but they have some really good shows that you should not miss. You should make sure you get to IOA as soon as it opens to make sure you get through everything without having to rush. I just don't know how crowds are now with Harry Potter. Regardless, a day at each park is plenty with or with out xpress passes.
  19. I always like trip reports of my home park. I agree with you on your Patriot comments. I've been on many inverts and Patriot is still my favorite. I'll be curious to see the reactions of those on the TPR midwest trip when they come through. Prowler is currently #3 on my woddies list behing Boulder and El Toro and just ahead of Evil Knieval. Night ride in the front row is where it's at, hands down. Good report. Hope you had a good time in KC.
  20. The wife and I went to BGW last week. During the week the crowds should be light. The only coaster we waited longer than 10 minutes for was Loch Ness. The wait for the Dark Castle ride was also long and it was a pretty decent dark ride. We ate at the bbq place in France. It was pretty good for theme park food. It is a very well themed park and like others have said go to all the shows you can.
  21. I agree with Houdini's Great Escape. That is a fantastic flat ride.
  22. Hopefully I can help since I just got back from Hershey and Great Adventure. Get the fast pass for sure at Great Adventure. We got the Gold version and it saved us alot of time. We had multiple rides on all the coasters we wanted. Kingda Ka ran all day when we were there (July 4th). I'm sure with 2 days you will have no issues riding everything multiple times. As for Hershey, we went on July 5th and it was busy, but not crazy busy. The longest line was Farenheit. We waited an hour to ride it, which sucked because it was the best ride in the park in my opinion. The only other line we waited very long was Storm Runner, everything else was close to a walk on.
  23. When we were at KI last year in May, it was shut down early because of a tornado. They kept everyone in the giftshops away from the windows. Tornados hit both east and west of the park. It was pretty crazy.
