  1. Drop Tower at KI scared the crap out of me at 300 ft. This one is going to really rock my world. Bring it on 2012.
  2. Okay just my thought on this new ride. I think its going to be a zac-spin or something small. Because if it was something like a B&M wing rider, it would likley be a bigger ride (around Batman's size or bigger). And so with that bigger size I think they would be a little bit farther along in the construction process around the Splashwater/Raceway area (if thats where its going). Because from what I saw last week when I was there, there wasn't much going on. And I think supports or pieces should have popped up by now, unless they are somewhere were no one can see them. But anyway just my thought. I hope its a wing rider, but I don't think its going to be one. And who knows 36ish hours from now I could be completely wrong (which I hope I am).
  3. FYI, if you zoom in on the park from Google maps. You get a aerial view of the park from last year. Before Green Latern, Roadrunner, and Superman repaint.
  4. So is the show that they do on the mountain a one time showing. Or does it run on a loop like the other starlight spectaulars.
  5. Has it been conformed that Big Spin from SFDK is going to Mexico? Because I can see it in Deja Vu's spot perfectly. And they wouldn't lose there coaster crown.
  6. One train that I was really impressed with was the one at Michigan's Adventure. How it goes threw the swamps out in the back of the park along with providing great views of Shivering Timbers (though you can't take pictures). And it also provides convenient transportation to the two biggest coasters in the park.
  7. A restraint that took me a good minute to figure out was the saftey bar for an old Trabant flat ride. Its kinda hard to describe but even anyone else has been on one you know what I mean.
  8. They started painting Xclerator a year and a half ago. And they haven't started to paint the track yet.
  9. The problem that they have with marketing to families is that families in southern California don't look at it is as a park with family rides so they won't go there, even if there is BBW and three small coasters. Instead they would rather pay more money to go to that other park that is an hour south on I-5. SFMM figured it out years ago that being in the southern California market, they need to offer a product to the other parks in the area like Disney, Universal, and Knott's (back before Cedar Fair) didn't offer which was big nasty thrill rides. Granted the thrill seeking crowd isn't as profitable or as large as a more family base crowd or a tourist base crowd that you get at Universal or Disney. But it was a way for them to distinguish themselves from their competition with a different product and experience.
  10. I agree MF is overrated. Don't get me wrong its my most favorite ride at CP and I try to ride it at least twice when I am there. But out of the 150 roller coasters ive been on, it ranks 6th on my list. I think if it wasn't located at CP it wouldn't make or just barely make golden ticket awards top 10 steel.
  11. What do you mean put it on the map? Canada's Wonderland is already the most attended seasonal operating amusement park in North America. Acording to the 2010 Global Attraction Attendance report it gets around 300,000 more either Cedar Point or Kings Island can get (even though its open less days a year). Of course a big part of that is being the only major Amusement park in the Toronto area.
  12. Canada's Wonderland did also built both Mighty Canadian Mindbuster and Wild Beast back in 1981 when the park opened. Hershey has Wildcat and both Lightning Racers so three there. Kings Dominion has Hurler and Grizzly, granted they were built more than a decade apart.
  13. ^Well my plan was to be there at opening and hitting Superman, Darkknight, and Raging Cajun right off the bat. So sounds good.
  14. Hi guys. I am planning on visiting the park this Friday. And I was wondering what do you guys think crowd levels might be like. I mean are kids back in school yet or are there any big promotions going on that day? There is nothing on their events page other than "Coasters after Dark".
  15. I believe they have 7 total trains. A red, blue, yellow, orange, purple, and two greens. But yeah the most I have ever seen them running at once is 5. And on a rainy day once I saw them only running one. (there was no line at all)
  16. ^Along with Valleyfair, Kings Island, and Gilroy Gardens. Actually come to think about it 6 of the 12 Cedar Fair parks don't have a B&M Invert.
  17. ^I guess its because Windseeker is new. I think they should have Firehawk and Flight of Fear as the Early entry rides. I mean why have it for the people eaters when you can have it for the rides that have the longest/slowest lines during the day, that would be a great perk. But I guess most guest don't think that way.
  18. No, all I have are the expansion packs and custom scenery that I got from downloading other people's parks. ^And yeah it is weird glitch. It seems like I would go back into the editor and reorganized some scenery, then it would be okay. But I would say about 1 out 5 times there won't be trees. And the trees that I put into the map on the editor will still be there when I play the map. I just can't put any in when I'm playing the scenario.
  19. Hey guys. In the scenario editor for RCT2, I would finish making the park then I would save it to play the scenario. But when I do play it I don't have trees in my scenery folder. I can put trees into the map on the editor but during play mode I cannot. And there isn't even an icon in the scenery folder for trees. Anyone else encounter this glich or whatever.
  20. I am planning on going this Wed (7/27). I know there is a Mike Posner concert, so hopefully it won't be too bad. I was planning on getting there and walking around checking out wait times before I decied to buy a Flashpass. But anyway, I have never heard of Mike Posner so mabey that won't attract too many people.
  21. I find this kinda funny. People take backpacks on this all the time. The ride sends who knows how many trains a day for 365 days a year for almost 10 and a half years. And finally now a backpack falls out. I guess I have to wait for a more detailed report to come out.
  22. I like it how the International Cafe at Universal is on there. I remeber walking in there to see what they had, and instead I went to Mel's for a bacon cheeseburger. Well I guess next time I should try it out.
  23. I wonder if it going to be similar to the "Hate to Wait" pass that they were experimenting with at Knott's during the off season. I think that was only $40 but I could be wrong.
  24. ^Don't forget the air conditioning. Mooseburger is the best place to eat at the park. To be honest, I have never really found the food quality at Six Flags parks to be that bad. Don't get me wrong I didn't say its good either. Its just not as bad as Cedar Fair's. With whom I still give the award for worst quality non-chain food.
