  1. I mean, not to be “that guy,” but... If it ends up going I-Box plus a reprofiling that introduces a new element or two...? That’s pretty compelling as far as “new credit” goes. I suppose the threshold for “new credit” is going to be pretty subjective depending on what happens.
  2. Right?!? And, I’m sure they will continue to landscape making it’s presence slightly less visually jarring.
  3. Not necessarily. They may have accounted for the difference by making that side's helix slightly larger. Similar to how they account for each individual slide by ensuring that the slide that starts the helix on the outside ends on the inside, and vice versa. Does that make sense? Not sure if I'm doing a good job explaining that. Edit: Whitecap Racer at Hershey Park seems to have a similar layout. Curious if anyone who has ridden it can verify if one side has an advantage.
  4. I'm not sure you'll find an answer from a qualified epidemiologist on this forum, but I could be wrong about that. My hunch is that physical proximity of countries matters much less than the policies and mitigations each country has put in place to flatten the curve as well as social compliance in regards to wearing masks, keeping distant, and washing hands. It's likely that Japan and South Korea acted more quickly than the United States has in regards to mitigations and recommendations. I also assume that you are correct in pointing out cultural differences. I really wish the US i
  5. Appears so... With everything going on, I feel like those who choose to visit any park this season should be prepared to compromise and roll with the rules and operational changes.
  6. Well, I just spent $130 on 1.5 bricks... anybody else grab theirs early?
  7. ^I'm right there with you. I'm really impressed at the scope of this year's investments— so many areas of the park are getting improvements and nice little touches. Am I about to drop a $100 on a Legacy Walk Brick, (read in a Minnasotian accent) you bet ya!
  8. Is it too early to revive this thread for the winter season? Because I had some time to throw the drone up yesterday.

  12. Ah, good times! Really though, I didn’t mind any criticism. I just hope Six Flags doesn’t pull my logo and rebrand the ride around the Joker or something like that. If they do, I hope they’ll let me take the portal sign off their hands. [emoji7] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. It's the most bizarre layout I've seen in a while, that's for sure. That being said - it looks awesome! I'm not a "sports" guy, but strong IP is always fun to see, especially at regional parks.
  14. Charlotte honestly has so many great restaurants. I really miss living there sometimes - agree on Mac's, great place!
  15. Great photos! And I'm in at least one of them!! The fog made for such a unique media day.
