  1. Themed cell phone locker is my guess. Edit: haha, nice filter.
  2. Haven't ridden Vortex, but you should shoot for the front on any B&M Stand-Up. Also, keep your knees bent a little/crouch prior to the restraints locking so the "seat" stays a little lower. Don't ride like that, though- after it locks, stand up straight and lean forward a little. If you ride these defensively, you might enjoy them. They're really intense rides.
  3. Lost Island Waterpark in Iowa was absolutely my first guess as to where Kanonen would end up.
  4. Let's hope not, unless it's something like a teacup ride re-theme.
  5. That's an impressive looking ride. Definitely a unique layout- looks like someone was bored and playing around with No Limits. Glad to see S&S finally plant a big one State-side. Looking forward to checking it out. I like the name, and actually find it a little surprising that we haven't seen more sports franchise themed rides- especially in areas with a rabid fanbase. Pittsburgh was probably one of the more obvious ones.
  6. As a casual observer of this thread, I kind of feel like I've stepped into an episode of Hey Arnold!, where PATTYCAKES is Helga, and CedarFair1 is Arnold. *shrugs*
  7. ^ It opened Saturday. As for sightseeing, the park isn't too far from Krakow. Plenty to do there, though I won't offer specifics, as I haven't been since the early 2000's.
  8. If all goes well, Kings Dominion at the end of the month. Might sneak SFA in there as well. After that, a surprise return trip to Cedar Point on the way back to Chicago for round 2 on Steel Vengeance. Hope Volcano isn't dormant anymore by then, but not looking good.
  9. Saw Radiohead at United Center last night.
  10. Ahhh, I wish, haha. I thought my last weekend was packed, but that is an impressive itinerary. Looks like a blast- hope you have fun.
  11. I don't think those breakdowns last too long. Towards the end of ERT at Coastermania, we were near the bathroom by Skyhawk when we saw one happen. It couldn't have been more than 15 minutes later that we were seated on the train awaiting our ride.
  12. I'm heading out to KD late July/early August. I know there is plenty to do here, but Volcano is a coaster I've been particularly excited for. Hope they figure it out.
  13. Went to see King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard last night at the Riviera in Chicago.
  14. It's coming up on Electric Forest time, and I can't go this year, so I went to the first night of Spring Awakening in Chicago. I don't go out of my way to listen to EDM, but it was a nice little fest, and a good time.
  15. 412 ft tall dive machine named Ziz stolen from Canada's Wonderland.
  16. ^ I like Wildcat as is, but I'd be fine, just fine with that.
  17. Enjoying the report- sorry to hear about this, and hope things get right, quick.
  18. If you can drive during the night, do it (and even that isn't a guarantee during summer). I've lived in the Chicagoland area all my life, and just thinking about travel conditions during a typical summer day is enough to give me a panic attack. As for eats, I know there is a Portillo's, as well as a Giordano's in Gurnee. IMO, eating at this park is something to be avoided. Take a break from what is sure to be a crowded day (Saturday) at GAm. Magic Seat = Last Row on Raging Bull. One of the best first drops in all of the land.
