  1. I was in New York two days ago, and I got to ride it. I thought it was pretty good, a little rough, but nothing over the top. It was nice and intense, but certainly not the greatest wood coaster ever (especially after riding Phoenix a few weeks ago).
  2. Mine was the Dragon at Legoland when I was 8. And I was scared to death once the downhill parts started.
  3. Ha, that reminds me, right by my house there's a house with a sign out front that says, "moving in soon: Rob & Elissa". Guess these "good twins" are everywhere!
  4. There's a fair over in Vienna (right by D.C.) going on right now, but it's only got a few rides. Maybe someone could go to it and whore their Go Gator.
  5. Heh, I posted a TR on this a few months ago. Did you see the pandas?
  6. I hate 99.5. Their music (and DJs) are very bad, as is made clear by this video. This coaster's pretty much the same as the other IJSTs, right?
  7. This year, Batwing's operation has been much improved. Last visit, for the first time ever, I saw them operating both platforms (with two trains)!
  8. Well then, now there's just two "large-quantity" amusement chains left in the U.S. Was there four back when Premier operated seperately from SF? We could be moving towards a monopoly here.
  9. You mave have heard about FBI officials raiding that CIA guy's house. The weird part is, that house is litarally a block away from where I live. Very weird seeing an area your very familiar with as the lead story on national news.
  10. Wow. The guy survived though, by ejecting moments before impact.
  11. That's pretty cool. It's on the way up to William's Grove from D.C, so it's basically the same but closer, which is pretty convenient.
  12. One of my friends has a colored light that fell off a carnival ride. I tried to buy it from him, but it didn't work out.
  13. Funny, I thought Robb thought this coaster had no airtime either.
  14. Wyandot lake is a nice little place. I used to live five minutes away from it, so I know a lot about the area. It shares the same parking lot with the zoo, and the zoo has their carousel, so it really was predictable. I enjoyed the zoo also, so hopefully they will do good things with this park.
  15. ^ I don't know the details, but I know the ride was down through the summer of 2004. In my only visit that year, I recall seeing a maintenance truck wuth men working on the lift of the ride.
  16. On Friday I went to Six Flags America with my family, mostly with the intent to get my season pass processed, but also with the intent to see what was new for this year. I saw many changes (mostly improvements), but I'll get to that later. Upon arrival to park, they gave one of those new poster maps (which look really nice). After getting a season parking pass, we headed in to process our passes. It was relatively quick and painless, and the benefits from the coupon book were nice. Now that we had gotten the season passes taken care of, it was time to check out the park. We headed over to Wild One, ready to begin the day on one of my favorite coasters. I saw Two-Face, looking closed as usual. Looks like Six Flags hadn't done much to change. But wait a minute! The staff at the entrance was moving aside, and people were getting in line. Not wanting to pass up a walk-on, my sister and I got in line. It was definitely a great way to truly begin my coaster year. After getting off, we headed straight to Wild One. From the crowds that I had seen so far, I was suprised to find it being a walk-on. It is one of my favorite coasters, a classic. After leaving the Southwest Territory area (which really doesn't have that much of a theme), I went over to Joker's Jinx. It's always good to have a ride operator who's into it, and this one was. He was not like the ones in the infamous pictures of ops sleeping on this ride. After getting off, I noticed something beyond the fence where the Alpine Bobs used to be. Could it be? It was! Lying next to Wild One were the cars for Ultra Twister, with boxes labelled "UT" lying next to them. I have two pictures attached of them. The rest of the day, I rode mostly everything else (except Batwing, the lines were bad), and noticed distinct improvements around the park. To name a few: - No rides were closed more than 30 minutes. - Lots of characters around the park. - General quicker service. - More kid-oriented activities. I also got to ride Wild One 8 times in a row, and rode Mind Eraser in the back . Overall, I was impressed with operations, and intend to go back soon,
  17. I slept most of the time between the two, so I'm not sure if I'm correct, but I think it actually did come to be around three hours (depending on how fast you drive on the highway).
  18. I was looking through your galleries, and noticed you didn't have any pictures of this park. Have you ever been there? I went by it this weekend and it looked like a nice place to visit, with plenty of rides and a nice setting.
  19. I rode it, and I found it very enjoyable! It was fairly small in size, but was very fun. The first section takes place in a tunnel that goes over the food court (perfect for ACErs!) that has a nice lighting package inside it. After the tunnel, the ride has a couple of bunny hops running parallel to the main walkway. the ride finishes with a forceful helix around the carousel up into the brake run. It was a very nice ride, in a nice mall.
  20. I saw this earlier, but I really don't think much of it. Unless you're a local, water parks closing rarely seem to have much significance, unless it's a well-known one. I don't know if this one is a large water park, I'm guessing it is, so it would be significant locally, but otherwise it doesn't have much meaning.
  21. States? I've been to: Virginia Maryland D.C. Delaware New Jersey Pennsylvania New York Ohio West Virginia Illinois Kentucky North Carolina South Carolina Georgia Florida Texas Arkansas Tennesee Arizona California
  22. As some of you may know, I went up to Canada this past weekend for a French class trip. We visited Montreal and Quebec, and I enjoyed the trip. Since I lost my camera I am borrowing a friend's photos for this trip report. I'll let the photos do the talking. Le Monstre at La Ronde. A blurry night shot of La Ronda A great aerial view of Montreal. The big white thing is Olympic Stadium. The Notre Dame Cathedral in Montreal. And finally, a picture of St. Anne's (I think) The view from Montmorency Falls Mega Parc's Ferris Wheel. More Mega Parc The Capitale Express at Mega Parc, the track emerging from the tunnel. The funiculaire leading up to the Chateau Frontenac in Quebec. The Biodome, which was this biulding with "mini-environments" in it. And... Goliath! The track was complete and the ride was looking nice. Vampire at La Ronde
  23. Wow... the Nationals are doing awful. I left for Canada five days ago, and the had won 2 games. I come back... they've won 2 games.
