  1. Does anybody know what the deal is for the week of November 8th-11th. Christmas in the park doesn’t start until the following weekend. Is it still fright fest? Is the whole park going to be open? And is there any particular reason it is open during the week at that time? It seems like an odd time for the park to be open so I was thinking of going. Thanks for he help!
  2. I am thinking of taking my first trip to Valleyfair! I’m in SD for work and haven’t ridden a coaster all year so I need my fix! Having never been there I am unsure of how busy the park can get. I am going to go on the 4th, during the evening. Anyone here been to the park on July 4th know how busy it gets? Or how busy the park gets on a regular busy day. Not sure if I’ll go if everything is 1+ hour wait. Thanks for the help in advance.
  3. I live in upstate New York and drive 14 hours twice a year to go to Dollywood. Leaving to come down Thursday morning, can't wait! Cades Cove is a must in the GSMNP. The Chimneys and is also awesome place in the park to see the MTN's. I have made the run up to clingmans dome a couple times before. I wasn't sure if the Cade's cove loop was worth it but I will def check it out this trip. Thanks a bunch. The thing holding me back from exploring the parks hiking trails is that we can't bring our puppy with us. I was so excited when we brought him down last year to go hiking but we couldn't. Do any locals know of any non national park hikes in the area we can bring him with us. We love hiking with him.

  5. ^ I remember Pete saying that on a podcast a few years ago. That also being the hardest part about expanding into the train loop on top of the hill.
  6. I think Tony is messing with us. I'm hopeful for 2017 but we shall see, the more days that goes by without an announcement the less optimisic I am about 2017.
  7. That's the boat I was in. I was all bundled up going up the lift on Nitro thinking "I can't believe I'm doing this". I was mildly looking forward to Joker as I've never ridden a 4d before but I was purely going for Nitro.
  8. I did a little science experiment at GADV yesterday. They had a blood drive at the park that I participated in, they were offering a free ticket and I haven't made it to GADV this year so I figured why not. Nitro has never given me issues with grey/blackouts and I wanted to see how blood donation would affect it, if at all. Everything was normal until I was re riding, then I was greying out going through the helix which never happens to me before. So moral of the story, if your susceptible to blackouts don't donate blood right before going to the park. Well I guess you didn't need me to tell you that it's pretty obvious, just wanted to share an interesting observation I had that that was relevant.
  9. At least the right ride was open. I got my Nitro fix and got 10 rides in on her yesterday. Not only are the weather be damned but they also are the park that allows re rides these days. 8 rides in a row at night when it was 30 degrees?? Pure bliss.
  10. I see on coasterqueue all the coasters are closed. Did it finally get too cold or has nobody updated it. It's only saying 32 and I know I rode nitro at 32 last year. Just on the fence about going tomorrow cause I won't be able to get there until around 4.
  11. Not knowing the details it's hard to know.If it was just some kids who did it on accident then I don't think it would be right to charge them with murder. However there were multiple warnings to not have any open flame, I suppose it does really come down to the age of the kids and the details surrounding it. That being said, I can't lie and say that if I lived there and lost my home or god forbid my family I wouldn't want them to get the electric chair. It's just a really awful situation all around, one of the Dollywood employees lost his wife and two childeren. Devestating doesn't even begin to describe this situation. These kids who are charged also have families that I imagine would be devastated if they were convicted of murder because they played with matches on the wrong day at the wrong time. We can only speculate until more details are released. I really love this area and have met many wonderful people at Dollywood and the surrounding area, my wife and I got married in Pigeon Forge and hope to move there someday. This disaster is just awful and I have the people I've met down there in my thoughts all the time.They will rebuild better and stronger in memory of those lost.
  12. With what seems to be a success at Six Flags with Holiday in the Park. Does anyone think Cedar Fair may follow suit at Cedar Point, or is the winter weather just too much in Sandusky? With Cedar Points operating schedule only being from May-Oct it is among the shortest of major amusement parks. I would guess with all the hotel renovations they would want them to be open as much as possible. They could decorate breakers for the holidays and have hot chocolate at the fire pits out back. Even if only a few coasters were open I would probably make a trip out as long as there was one good one open. Maverick seems to run well in cold and high wind situations. Opening week 2015 it was the only coaster open when there was 50 MPH winds and 45 degree temps. Any thoughts? I would love it.
  13. How much are those hard ciders? If their at least semi strong I'd pay 12 bucks for one. I feel a little buzz would compliment the relaxed nature of HITP well and they look delicious.
  14. This was the first year in 10 that I had not got a SF pass. I was looking on the website and saw that if you give blood at the blood drive on Sunday the 11th you receive a free ticket. I was thinking of headed down because I miss Nitro very much. The preliminary forecast calls for it to be around 43 when the park opens, does anyone know what the temperature policy is for the coasters? Nitro specifically, it wouldn't really be worth the drive down if Nitro is not open. Last year I know I rode it and it was 31 degrees out at night. Thanks a bunch.
