  1. Unfortunately, I think this is for Canada's Wonderland. Many of the "clues" fit for the new B&M Dive Coaster up there.
  2. We are staying at the Park Inn by Radisson Resort and Conference Center, just outside of the Walt Disney World Resort. We have a mutual friend who has a timeshare there that they are letting us use. We looked into purchasing the line passes at Universal, as we plan on only spending the day there. Are they worth the price? Suggestions for both quick serve and sit down restaurants, within the parks, would be welcomed. Unfortunately we will not have a vehicle there, Uber will be our method of transportation.
  3. Hello everyone! A college friend and I have planed a last minute trip to Orlando for spring break next week. We will be visiting Disney's Magic Kingdom, Epcot and both Universal parks. Neither of us have been before, so we would love to hear some tips about must see attractions, restaurants and shows. Is there anything that we should not miss? Are there things that we shouldn't waste our time on? Locals always have the best tips, so I would love to hear them! Thanks! Parker
  4. I wouldn't call Rougarou a bust at all! I too was at Cedar Point on Wednesday the 13th and know that it was not busy at all! Gatekeeper was a 7 minute wait at 11AM when we rode it, as was Raptor. Rougarou was actually one for the longer lines we waited in - 25 minutes. I think you pretty much summed up how slow the day was with you comment about Millennium Force - 20 minute wait AND it was only running two trains! Is Rougarou the best coaster in the world? No, BUT it is a vast improvement over Mantis and a coaster the GP seems to be loving! I do agree with your opinion on the new Maverick restraints! No more defensive ridding!!!!
  5. I just returned home from Cedar Point. I was a bit hesitant to make the trip up there after hearing all of the poor opening weekend reports, but overall it was a GREAT day. The park was clean, ops were enthusiastic & efficient and lines were short. All coasters were operational except for Wicked Twister. As reported above, the WT train was completely on the track with most parts on the train. Hopefully this is a sign that testing will begin soon. Millennium Force was still on two train operation with the yellow train missing from the track. Gemini was also at reduced capacity, only the red side was running. Dragster was up and down all day. Nothing new there. I was able to take my first spin on the "new" coaster, Rougarou. Personally, I think that converting Manits into Rougarou was a FANTASTIC choice. Rougarou is quite comfortable, fun and exciting. As others have reported the trim is off, and the ride hauls through the course. The refreshed Wicked Twister midway is also looking nice. All relocated rides were operational and open for guests today.
  6. I actually don't think they painted over the worn parts on the rails. If you watch the first Rougarou File they released last fall you notice the painters avoided the worn areas. Here is a link to the clip. Look at at the 1:50 mark, they are painting the rails and "worn areas." The paint didn't have as much time to set then it might usually have. Mantis was still in operation every weekend while they painted. Possibly. If you look at the 2:05 mark you see the painters clearly avoiding the worn areas. Regardless I don't believe Cedar Point will be upset with the paint job.

  8. Did you guess that or read it somewhere? Because that is actually the name. http://www.holidayworld.com/rides/crowsnest/ I totally just guessed it. Just seemed like a fitting name!
  9. So what coaster is it going to be??? http://www.si.com/nba/2014/07/11/lebron-james-cleveland-cavaliers
  10. hmm could be. Looks like Busch Gardens gave them some ponchos while they were stuck. One photo they don't have them on, and the next they do...
  11. Valleyfair is excited to announce the addition of a new family coaster, Northern Lights, and the development of Route 76, an all-new area geared towards families. Looks great! https://www.valleyfair.com/what-s-new/new-for-2014-route-76
  12. I personally do not think the video was bad. It did what it was intended to do, and the family acted just as they did in their audition video. I have definitely seen way cheesier videos, ex. Fun Spot "ITS HUGEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!" Overall the refresh looks great and will be a great addition to the Point! Woohoo, No more Blacktop!!!
  13. http://www.newsnet5.com/dpp/news/local_news/oh_erie/whats-new-at-cedar-point-in-2014-its-extreme-makeover-cedar-point-edition “It will be like the popular ABC show, ‘Extreme Makeover, Cedar Point Edition!’,” said spokesman Bryan Edwards. Hmmmm, wonder what it will be? Blue Streak Midway? Wicked Twister Midway? Redoing Kiddie Kingdom? We will see on Tuesday!
  14. hmmmmmmmmmmmm........... " @TonyClarkCP: Gonna need some help with the 2014 announcement. You in?" and " @TonyClarkCP:It's clear you all want to help - but I can't choose everyone. The details on how you can be a part of it coming tomorrow. #CP2014"
  15. Looks like a great trip and ship! I can't wait till my first cruise.
  16. Amazing views! Hopefully one day I will be able to see them for myself!
