  1. My family is going to the Orange Bowl this year (Go Hoos!), and I was wondering what Universal looked like for New Year's Eve and Day. Can anybody give me any tips or ideas of crowds or which park to do if I could only do one? Thanks so much!
  2. So I am going to be in Orlando tomorrow, and I was wondering if anyone had any advice about what to do for New Year's Eve. I was hoping to go to a park (either at Disney or elsewhere), but was looking for any advice anyone has about what to do. Epcot was my thought but I know it's SUPER crowded; I assume everywhere will be and that's just got to be part of the fun. I've never been to SeaWorld either so I thought there might be cool too. Thanks for any help!
  3. I'm just sad they wouldn't be using the same music. Reflections of Earth is pretty much my favorite piece of music, period. Anyway, I'm thinking of going to EPCOT for New Year's Eve. Does anyone have any tips or ideas regarding what to do?
  4. Does Cedar Point have a fairly liberal rider assistance program policy (I'm not sure what exactly they call it)? I'm not judging because I know not all disabilities are visible, but I have seen so many people coming up through the exit with sheets at so many rides, more than at any other park I've been to. Is that what it is or is it something else? At this point I'm just really curious.
  5. Well why not, so I'm going. So if anyone's gonna be at the park this weekend, I'll be there!
  6. So if I theoretically drove through the night tomorrow and camped near Cedar Point I could expect absurd crowds for Labor Day, right? I'm trying to decide if this is a good idea. I'm also trying to finagle a friend to join.
  7. I am headed to the park tomorrow for the first time (hurray first international theme park!) and was wondering if anybody had any tips or tricks for the park. I just like having a plan of attack, and the people here know best! Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks so much!
  8. I'm meeting my friends at the park tomorrow, and they're trying not to pay for parking. Is there a place they could park their car for the day outside so they could just pile into mine? On a different note, how is TT doing? Have they figured out the issues? I told them to get there early so we could go ride it before it gets crowded, but if it has issues opening with the park I'd go do Volcano first.
  9. So I'm scheming to go to the park (like 98% to take my sister on Kingda Ka; it's closer than Dragster), and I was thinking opening weekend as a surprise, but I was wondering what the crowds would be like and if everything would be open and running. Any insight would be much appreciated! Thanks!
  10. I went a few weeks ago with a few of my friends, and I thought this year's event was the strongest I've been to between BG and KD in the past five years. I thought all of the mazes were fantastic with a lot of scares in every one. Blood on the Bayou's theming is amazing and was a little low on scares the first time I went through but was great the second time. Even Tollway Terror got us several times. Zombie High was the only one that's a little tired at this point because it's been there the longest. Blackout was the highlight of our night and the group's favorite by far. We went through
  11. Why do they need them? Is the envelope smaller than normal?
  12. That was the weirdest thing to me. Dollywood's operations were top-notch for the most part...except on Lightning Rod, where they should be the most on top of things. There were a couple times where people didn't fit, and (partially because of their weird lapbar policy) it took forever to figure out whether they were going to be able to ride. Like they didn't have any time point where they just said "I'm sorry, we need to dispatch the train and this isn't working." They just kept going until it worked or it was very apparent it was not going to. I thought that was really weird. On a differe
  13. I just got back from a weekend at the park, and everything was amazing. I had last been to Dollywood the year Thunderhead opened and was really excited to see how much they'd expanded since then. It is honestly the most beautiful park, I think, and it's setting really just can't be beat. It was drizzling Saturday afternoon into evening so somehow, despite being the Saturday of Labor Day weekend, crowds were almost non-existant. Crowds Sunday were heavier but we just checked out some shows and ate cinnamon bread. All the rides were great. Mystery Mine I really enjoyed despite it being a li
  14. Thanks for the reply! I kind of figured that it was going to be more complicated than that. I suppose I'll have to wait until I nail down a few more of the specifics before moving forward, but thanks, that's at least some good stuff to keep in mind! Now fingers crossed it works out!
  15. So I am hopefully going to be moving to Orlando soon for a job, and I was wondering if you had any advice on moving to the Orlando area. I am rather clueless and was hoping you could provide insight on things like locations or typical rents or just other "inside" information. I'd be looking for an apartment for just me, but am open to anything/anywhere right now. Any help would be much appreciated!
  16. I'm headed to the park tomorrow for a bit on the way to a party. I'm going to guess it'll be very crowded, but I don't how Fridays stack up here. Any advice?
  17. What is offsetting vs. the usual track construction methods?
  18. Magnum is an Arrow hyper I just used the regular Arrow track.
  19. And another one. I figured out a way to take NoLimits track and make a model out of it, which makes things a lot easier. Here's Magnums turnaround (sans scaffolding supports because I haven't figured the best way to do it).
  20. Your wish is my command. (Really, I just am done with school and have time again and am bored and need to get a job.) More to come!
  21. I'm in Minnesota visiting relatives and popped into the park tonight. I've never been before and got there about 8:30. Hopped out of my car to a massive clap of thunder which explained why I hadn't seen anything running. I got on Monster which seemed to be the only thing running, and right as I got off they started opening the lines for everything (which surprised me because there was still very visible lightning). By this point, everyone had left which made the rest of the night great with walk-ons all around. I rode Corkscrew which was one of the smoothest Arrows I've ridden. Then I wen
  22. What 3D printer are you using? It looks fantastic!
  23. I graduated today with a Master's degree in mechanical engineering! Excited to see what's next!
  24. Thanks for the compliments on the picture! We had just pulled out to leave, and the sun broke through the clouds behind us. My friend and I just looked at each other like, "Well, of course we are taking a picture of that." It did look really nice.
  25. I got back today from my first trip to SFGAdv, and after a bit of a rough start it turned out great. I stayed over after my friend's place in Bethesda before heading up Friday. We knew the weather wasn't great and wary of the warning that the park could close, but the drive up had some clear spots so we were hopeful. We checked Twitter about every 30 minutes just to make sure. And then we checked it as we are about to pull in... "Park closing at 1pm." Aaaaaand it was 1:06. So after a brief period of disappointment (mitigated in part by the heads up, so thanks for that.) We left and saw Guardia
