  1. B&M - Vortex, Great America Intamin - Green Lantern, Magic Mountain GCI - Roar, Discovery Kingdom
  2. Sierra Sidewinder at Knott's Berry Farm. Definitely an underrated coaster.
  3. So excited for Mine Ride this year! Also actually considering doing Fright Lane since six mazes offer skeleton key this year, might be worth the extra money.
  4. No matter what they do to the track, it ultimately needs new trains. I'm also curious as to what they'll do with Screamin' Swing's spot.
  5. -Magic Mountain Deja Vu Psyclone Colossus -Discovery Kingdom Roar -Santa Cruz Boardwalk Hurricane -Adventure City Treetop Racers
  6. Just rode Desert Storm and Patriot at Castles n Coasters in Phoenix Arizona, that makes 80 for me.
  7. So I'm trying to figure out which mazes won't be returning this year. Trick or Treat, Dominion of the Damned, and Pinocchio Unstrung are the oldest mazes that all debuted 3 years ago. I'm guessing Trick or Treat is out. I really hope Dominion is returning as it's one of my favorites. I was thinking Pinocchio was out, but now I'm hearing rumors that it will be back. As for the haunted attraction, my guess is towards mine ride, I think they could find a way to bring the monsters back to that one and the park will wait until next year to use Iron Reef. If any of this plays out, that leaves room for one more new maze to announce. 1. Voodoo.............................(skeleton key) 2. Dominion of the Damned?.......(skeleton key?) 3. Tooth Fairy.........................(skeleton key) 4. Infected 5. Gunslinger's Grave 6. Pinocchio Unstrung?..............(skeleton key?) 7. Forevermore 8. Black Magic........................(skeleton key) 9. Mine Ride 10. Dead of Winter...................(skeleton key) 11. TBA
  8. First off, I am extremely excited for all the new shows and updated attractions for this summer. This is definitely a great year to be a pass holder and witness all the 60th celebration stuff going on. That being said, I can't help but sigh and shake my head after reading that list of floats for the new parade. When looking at every show that is performed in the Disneyland Resort, I find it interesting what movies they choose to present in each individual show. Obviously if there is a newer movie that has done very well, they will want to showcase it (Frozen). Yes, I think they've gone a little overboard with the Frozen Fun stuff, but it doesn't surprise me it will be making an appearance in the new parade. What surprises me is choosing movies like Toy Story, Monsters Inc, and Mermaid. It bothers me when they decide to use the same movie characters for every single show. The Pixar movies already make an appearance in the Pixar Play Parade in California Adventure, so why repeat them in the other park? And then there's Mermaid. What's with Disney's sudden craze over a movie from the 90s? The Little Mermaid makes an appearance in the following Disneyland Resort attractions: Voyage of the Little Mermaid (ride), Ariel's Grotto (restaurant), King Triton's Carousel, World of Color, Fantasmic, Mickey's Magical Map, and now the two new shows coming to Disneyland as well. Talk about repetition. Here's the thing, I feel like Disney needs to find a better way to balance out what movies and characters they decide to use for their different shows. Mickey's Magical Map is a great example of attempting this, as they decided to use movies that either were not as popular or have not been showcased in a current show already such as Pocahontas, Lilo & Stitch, Tangled, Jungle Book, and Princess and the Frog. But then of course they just had to throw in Mermaid too. I'm no entertainment coordinator/designer/expert, but it's just interesting to see how they decide to spend millions of dollars on certain things are already showcased elsewhere. Needless to say, I will still be watching these new shows come summer, and am very excited for the new technology that the company is expanding toward.
  9. I can't wait to ride this this summer! Raging waters is definitely my favorite water park in California now since Wild Rivers closed a couple years ago. Happy to see a water coaster finally come to this state and hopefully more start to pop up other places too.
  10. At Knotts there's Silver Bullet, Jaguar, Pony Express, and then Sidewinder and Xcelerator you can walk under them while waiting in line.
  11. I personally don't see why parks have been doing this. Why build a really great hyper coaster, only to leave it in the dust after building a bigger and better version of it in the form of a giga? Not that Behemoth and Intimidator aren't considered great coasters anymore. And I understand that the hyper is geared more towards air time while the giga focuses on height and speed, but why not invest in rides that are more unique and different from each other rather than just out-build their own rides? Needless to say, I'm still looking forward to riding all 4 of those B&Ms some day: Behemoth, Leviathan, Intimidator, and Fury 325.
  12. This is looking a little ahead into the future, but knowing the next new coaster will be the park's 20th, they'll have to go with something really really spectacular. I'm actually starting to think a new B&M giga like Leviathan and Fury would make a great addition to the park.
  13. I'd love for Rocky Mountain to come in and replace the track but keep the existing layout. I love the layout. I remember a couple years ago there were rumors floating around that they were thinking about getting new trains for it, which I'm not convinced that would solve the "roughness". Looking at other Cedar Fair Parks, it seems that GCI is the only company they have gone with for their other parks in recent years. Would GCI topper track be a possible and smart choice?
  14. ^ Or hopefully someone from management rides Twisted Colossus this summer and realizes that's what Ghostrider needs too.
  15. Also, why doesn't Colossus, Superman, Full Throttle, or X2 have flash pass listed on the map? Are those the extra rides that have an up charge?
  16. It always bothers me when a park repaints a coaster and they don't bother to change it on the map. And I find it interesting that they consider Twisted Colossus, Superman, and Drop of Doom to be "moderate thrills" instead of "maximum thrills."
  17. I had to create a one point perspective drawing for my art appreciation class. I'm pretty happy with the outcome, considering the Windseeker/Star Flyer ended up with literal box seats.
  18. I tend to get grayouts pretty frequently and I always just assumed my smaller skinny body figure played a role in that. After reading through this thread, it sounds like staying hydrated could help reduce this. Still interestingly enough, I usually expect to have a grayout while riding Xcelerator, Silver Bullet, Montezooma, Goliath, and Batman. The only thing I've ever experimented with concerning this is noticing that it happens more frequently when I'm in the back of the train versus the front on all of those.
  19. It would be funny if they had an actor pretending to be a guest get kidnapped from the tram and taken hostage.
  20. I'm just hoping the new ride isn't the same as the Cars ride in Paris, since Maters Junkyard Jamboree and Francis' Ladybug Boogie already use the same system. And since there are already bumper cars in Bugs Land as well, that idea seems repetitive too. Personally, I liked Flying Tires. I'll still miss it, but I know change can always be a good thing as well so I'm excited to see what comes.
  21. Having those on rides is definitely a huge safety issue. Loose articles should not be permitted on any ride anyway in my opinion. As far as shows and anywhere else they are used, people will always be rude no matter what anyway, there's not much you can actually do. Even if they were "banned", people will still be rude and obnoxious. I do understand that these would be very annoying and obstruct the enjoyment of parks though. Just my thought process.
  22. The reason Supreme Scream has the cars at the top a little longer is because the park updated the system which makes the ride even more simple to operate. The control panel even has touch screens now. And just a heads up to anyone heading to the park this week, they are working on the train tracks where the pedestrian crossing is between fiesta village and boardwalk, so there are construction walls blocking off that pathway on both sides. If you want to get from Waveswinger to Supreme Scream, you have to walk all the way around Log Ride. In addition to that, Log Ride and Ghostrider will be closed for maintenance the remainder of this month.
  23. I don't understand why everyone thinks Riddler is going to get new trains. Every time I visit the park Riddler tends to have one of the longest lines in the park. People still wait up to 2 hours for it, I don't see the park changing it anytime soon.
  24. Rewind Racers Construction Update: Friday December 5 We've gone vertical! A look at the station and first spike that run parallel to Beach Blvd An overview of the new coaster
  25. I'm not sure if it is a Starbucks that is coming to the park. The location is the old candy store outside Cordelia's facing the large fountain. The canopy says "Gourmet Coffee Hut" so it may be the park's own brand. Either way, it should be a popular stand when it opens.
