  1. I might be late to the game here and sorry if it's been discussed before, but what's going on with the Ferris wheel? Why is it missing cabins? My guess is balancing but can anyone confirm? I didn't notice it when I went in 2013.
  2. Personally I would do Carowinds. With volcano being closed and the mess that is twisted timbers with its new no loose artical policy and increased wait times. I would give it a bit before visiting. Granted there are still a ton of great reasons to visit the park but if volcano is a big reason for you visiting, I would wait. I also might be a bit bias since I love Carowinds a lot more than KD. Lol
  3. Wow that really sucks for the park. Hopefully not a ton of damage is caused and the park can reopen quickly.
  4. I just moved to Orlando this past weekend so who could say? My guess is probably Seaworld later on today to get a ride or two on Mako and maybe try Kraken VR if its operational.
  5. Besides the basic B&M roars, my vote goes to Goliath at SFNE followed by the launches of TTD and Kingda Ka. Special shout out goes to most RMCs out there as well. Wicked Cyclone and a few others really roar!
  6. I'm sure they can figure out a way to make a harbor expansion over there. They already a have the exit path to their tornado slide. Granted they just got a new waterside but it is something they could possibly get in the future depending on the size of the land they own/can build on.
  7. I have. While it happens far from often, it can happen on high attendance days such as concerts and during fright fest. More often than not you'll see them run out of an entire level before running out completely though.
  8. Wait, so I'm confused. Is there a coaster that hasn't been announced for this park yet or are we talking about the thunderbolt clone? I'm hearing lots of people say longest coaster in the south east as well that news report saying second longest in the country.
  9. There were a few rides I loved working on at SFNE. Tazs Dare Devil Dive (Skycoaster) - skycoasters are amazing to work and they can do no wrong. Enough said. Flying Aces- This was my all time favorite kids ride to work on. The area where it was located was never very busy and when people did come, you had the time to really interact with them and make the kids be the happiest they could be. Fireball- this is a fun ride to operate just because the entire cycle is controlled by the operator with a joystick. Scream- this is probably my favorite ride to work on that's not a coaster. It's always fun to freak guest out by giving fake count downs or having them launch when they think they will climb slowly. I also love it because I like trying to get quick dispatch times. It's pretty rewarding when you can say you got a really high number that hour and you're the reason/half the reason/a third of the reason. Lol For coasters... Mind Eraser- 1 attendant is a blast because you really have to hustle to get trains out quickly. When it has two attendants, it's just that much better. Try really seems to fly by while working on this ride. Batman- fun to work on just because I like the challenge of rolling trains. Doing this is very difficult on this ride because by the time train in the station has parked, the train on the lift is already going down the first drop, so you have only a small window of time to dispatch the next train. Superman: The Ride- Love it. Love attending it (with 2,4,or 6 attendants), Love operating it. Just love it. Thunderbolt- I like operating it because you have to park the train yourself. Wicked Cyclone- fun to attend with 4 attendants because we only have to check 6 seats and we have very quick dispatch times. Operating it is also a lot of fun. It's pretty similar to operating the orginal cyclone, just with a few more buttons and cooler looking panel. Goliath- I loved working both (old and new train) versions of this ride. It's always nice to be able to have a minute to yourself and that's what you get as you are watching the ride cycle.
  10. Runaway Mine Train at Great Adventure was my first big steel coaster! I love that ride so much! I have great memories riding it with my parents when I was 7 and 8 years old, to riding it with my friends from high school all over the world!

  12. I personally really enjoyed the Flight of Fear line at Kings Dominion. I love walking though the spaceship.
  13. The thing is is that the event is in fact bringing people in from 2+ hours way. I myself live 4 hours away, took the trip down from Massachusetts for opening night and had a great time. I also have many non coaster enthusiast friends that want to go down for the event because it looks, and in my opinion, is that good. I also saw many license plates from other states like New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, and Massachusetts. So what ever the park is do, it's clearly working.
  14. Hey everyone, sorry to change the subject for a moment. I was wondering if any one here could help me with a few questions about Halloweekends. I trying to plan my first trip to this event and i've done some searching on the web with no luck to any answers. I was wondering if anyone knew if Fast Lane and Fright Lane are sold together or as one, or are they both normally separate prices? I noticed that during the normal summer season, Fast Lane is $80 and Fast Lane Plus is $100, but during September, it's $100 for Regular and $125 for plus. I'm assuming that they are both sold together, but I would just like to clarify. Also I was wondering if they close the park down like some other parks do and then reopen the park for the event? If this is something they do do, would a Cedar Fair Platinum Pass (I have one for Carowinds) cover the event or is it an additional fee? The parks website also mentions black out dates, does anyone know when those dates are? Thanks in advance! -Kevin
  15. ^ True I work at a park so i'll be living there all season! < Can't wait to go back to work! V Likes more things then Nina Kleppe!
  16. So weird to see the train already on the track, but it's great to see it arriving!
  17. Looks great! I can't wait to finally check out Kings Island this season!
  18. Right now we have about 22 inches of snow on the ground with another two or three inches expected. Also the travel ban for my area doesn't expire until midnight. Before Before Before Before Before Before Before After the most intense part of the storm was over. My back yard before. And after. They're killer snow drifts like this all over the place! after I shoveled out.
  19. All is well right now, but my area is in a Blizzard Warning from 1pm today until 1am Wednesday. I live between the Cape and Boston where they are predicting 2+ feet of snow with winds of 40-75mph. Should be a good time. I'll post photos later!
