  1. As always, fantastic report so far! Always look forward to your IAAPA coverage. Thanks for sharing and getting so many pics/video!
  2. Chose option 1. I follow TPR on pretty much everything. LOVE having the Twitter feed on the right.
  3. Each of these coasters, every time I've ridden, I gray out in these places: Sheikra (BGT) - bottom of first drop into the inversion (never happened on any of my Griffon rides though) Nitro (SFGAdv) - helixes towards the end... big time, every time i305 - most of the first part of the ride, haha, but love it! Bizarro (SFNE) - helixes before the tunnel at the end Goliath & Titan (SFMM & SFOT) - upward helixes The most intense ones for me were i305 and Nitro. I don't mind it though, I really like intense coasters and even the crazy flats.
  4. Your anniversary party looked like so much fun--thanks so much for sharing the pics with all of us! Congrats on 10 years of awesomeness!
  5. Loving these TPR Orlando updates! You all look like you have such a blast!
  6. Awesome pictures! Thanks for sharing. I was wondering how Screemfest was this year. Don't know if I'll get the chance to go, but it looks much improved from the last time few times I went. I haven't been since they added Cannibal Island. Good to see Canobie continuing to expand on this!
  7. i305 is on Fast Lane, you just can't sit in the front row with it. I was there Sept. 28 & 29 and had FL both days... We rode i305 a disgusting amount of times. It's worth it even without being able to access the front row, because if you do decide to wait for the front a few times you can still walk right in to the 2nd row or back with FL. Also, I called the park before my trip to confirm i305 was a FL ride because it wasn't listed as one on the KD site.
  8. Great photos! Robb & Elissa's party looked amazing!
  9. Agreed on the Stratosphere rides! I think the scariest one up there is Big Shot--it's the most terrifying ride experience for me out of everything I've ever been on (although I've been on it lots of times). I love drop/launch towers, and I will ride the craziest of coasters and flat rides, go skydiving, etc., but the friggin' Big Shot scares the living hell out of me every single time I ride it. I get flashbacks of RCT3 and the thing launching too fast and going off the top... and when you're already so high up to begin with, it feels like you're definitely going up and off the tower. I
  10. Thanks! Over the years, I've seen lots of similar pics of Nessie, but I was so happy to be there to finally take my own.
  11. Anyone on here gone to Fright Fest this year? Thinking about checking it out, but want to make sure it's worth the hour and a half drive...
  12. ^ Thanks! I meant to add a pretty great GP comment we heard while waiting for Dominator: Guy: I want to go on the Intimidator next... Girl: No way I'm going on that, I heard you pass out... Guy: Yeah, but you come back alive.
  13. Over the last weekend in September, the BF and I took a trip from here in Boston down to VA to go to Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Kings Dominion. We had a great time at both parks, rode all the coasters lots of times, and had an unexpected blast at the haunt events! TR and pics below (pics are after the TR): Busch Gardens Williamsburg I hadn’t been to BGW since Drachen Fire was still there (and before Drachen Fire got modified), so it’d been a while--my BF had never been. I was so excited about going back to this park. All my memories of it were that it was gorgeous, and it definit
  14. There used to be an Arrow like this called Black Widow at Riverside Park in Massachusetts (which is now Six Flags New England). I totally agree that this type of coaster is awesome, and I miss it! It used to be one of my favorites to ride. The backwards drop was my favorite part--it always gave me that "stomach drop." I would take this back at SFNE in a heartbeat. It beats the hell out of Mind Eraser and some of the other not-so-great coasters we've got. It was a short ride, but always a blast!
  15. I like Thunderhawk a lot too... IMO Hydra is way more boring than Thunderhawk. I was at Dorney a couple weekends ago (for the 2nd time), and was still pleasantly surprised with Thunderhawk--lots of fun, re-ridable, etc. Had a great day at the park--I love Dorney! They really do a great job keeping the park and rides looking nice, and the rides are run very efficiently (at least they were each time I've visited). I will never understand Hydra. It looks like it should be so much fun, but every time I've gone on, I'm so bored during the ride, and get off the ride without feeling
  16. Can anyone that was at the park recently confirm if Fast Lane was being used for i305? They took i305 off the list of Fast Lane rides on their website--don't know if they did this when the ride was broken and just haven't updated it yet, or if FL is no longer an option for it... I believe it used to be. I hope they haven't changed it--it was the whole reason I was going to get FL (well, that an Volcano).
  17. ^ So happy I could cry! Can't wait for Sept. 28th! Been dying to ride i305!
  18. ^ Thanks! I was hoping that would be the answer, but wasn't sure if Haunt would make it packed or not.
  19. ^ couldn't agree more about Talon. It's tied with Montu for my favorite invert. It was a total surprise hit for me as I wasn't really expecting it to be as good as it is. My first trip to Dorney was a couple years ago, and the crowds happened to be light, so we rode Talon for pretty much the full last hour we were at the park. Such an awesome ride. Going to Dorney for the 2nd time this coming weekend--can't wait! It's one of my favorite parks I've been to!
  20. Seeing that the recent blurb about i305 stated "later this Fall," I'm guessing that could be anytime between the end of Sept and Oct. My plane tix are already bought for a BGW/KD weekend the weekend of 9/27-9/29. I'm so beyond bummed out about this, since i305 was pretty much reason #1 for making the trip. Obviously, things like this happen, and it's out of my (and probably the park's) control... still, it will be a sad trip walking by a closed i305... I already grabbed my BGW tix and QQ for that Friday. We were planning on doing KD on Sat. and Sun., but is it worth us getting Fast Lan
  21. I have what may be a stupid ticket question, but I just want to make sure before I buy... For the BGW Fall Fun card, does that include all-day park admission AND haunt? On the website it says "Pay for a day and get unlimited visits to Howl-O-Scream." I have to believe that this also includes park admission outside of haunt hours, but KD has separate haunt/park ticket options, so I wanted to make sure that wasn't how BGW worked too...
  22. From KD's Facebook page today: https://www.facebook.com/kingsdominionva?hc_location=stream Pleeeeaaaase be open by Sept. 28th!
  23. ^ Pretty much any of those days will be crowded. My gut instinct is that Monday would be the preferred day to go, because most people have work and school the next day, so even if the morning/early afternoon is crowded, by nightfall it should empty out a bit. The only problem is, the Labor Day hours are 11-8. Sat & Sun are 11-10, so you get 2 extra hours... but, I guess if Monday is less crowded the 2 extra hours wouldn't be as needed anyway. Also, I can probably guarantee that with the park being busy on Saturday (and maybe Sunday), they will keep the park open until 11pm. I've
  24. Starting to panic a little... already got flights and everything for the end of Sept. Hoping i305 isn't done for the rest of the year... fingers crossed.
