  1. That is a Delta plane due to the seat-back pocket space shape, and considering most Delta flights in the United States have WiFi and in flight power plugs, it would be hard to specify what kind of plane they are on or where they are going. HOWEVER, they are not on the Lufthansa (Air India code-share) flight going to Frankfurt, as Lufthansa planes have different seats.


    I would also like to point out the recurring motif of "going west" in the pictures. In most pictures, there is a arrow or object pointing west (such as the cow on the toy machine or arrow in the airport, plus the stationary plane was facing West) and also Las Vegas and the Target are on the West coast. Coincidentally, the plane that they are boarding in Robb's picture a few minutes ago has daylight coming in, which would be impossible if they were on the East Coast (unless the photo was taken probably 40+ minutes before posting). Maybe the Detroit picture was a reference to Delta's hub there, meaning they were for sure on Delta?


    Who knows! I may be looking to much into this!

  2. I chose Option #1 because I feel that social media is a big part of online communities today, and even if people don't use social media (in this case, Twitter), it may still come in handy to have the sidebar for the absolute latest updates from TPR. Also I chose #1 because I felt that main feature picture on #2 was way too big and it made the page so long that you couldn't see any of the "News & Updates" and "TPR updates" columns. For these reasons, I felt #1 was the best option.

  3. I went on Saturday 10/28 and Undertow was running with no major problems from about 1:00 to 3:00 when I was there. It was about a 45 minute wait (the employee standing at the entrance was spot on) and the line seemed to move relatively fast. As for the ride, it was extremely smooth and surprisingly felt faster than I thought it would be. It is really a great addition to the boardwalk and it will be better when all the kinks are worked out!

  4. I remember a few years ago when Hurricane would be on the limited operation list instead of the Giant Dipper. In Undertow news, I still see people working on it everyday and there is now a car sitting at the bottom of the lift again and a few more in the station uncovered. Everything looks pretty much done except for removing all the construction items. I hope to see it open soon and hopefully operating on the limited operation days so I can come back!

  5. Here is a picture shown on my local news showing how close it came to the back of the park. The news said that a spokeswoman for SFMM stated that the park was still open, but one ride had to be closed (presumably Apocalypse) because of the need to use the road behind the park for emergency vehicles. Sorry for the bad quality, they haven't uploaded the video online yet.


    Well, the fire plays nicely with Apocalypse's theme...

  6. While we're in the USA my brother and I have decided to head to a baseball game, so we're seeing the Nationals play the Mets in Washington. I basically understand the sport but is anyone able to fill me in on whether either of these teams are any good, players to watch for and any other tips to help us enjoy the game more?


    Washington is one of the best teams in the MLB! Great pitching and hitters. I haven't really heard anything on the Mets this year but anything can happen in baseball so it should be a good game, Washington has a great atmosphere it seems. I'm sure more people on here can fill you in with more information on players and other tips.

  7. Did anyone else try the new Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco at Taco Bell today? I found it to be even tastier than the Nacho Cheese flavor.


    Tried one today with some friends! I thought it added a lot more to the taco because of the shell, and because Cool Ranch are my favorite chips, but my friends liked the Nacho Cheese shell better.

  8. ^ Exactly! My family and I did the RCCL Mexican cruise out of Los Angeles in 2008 on Monarch and we had a great time! The only lines that seem to go out of Los Angeles and San Diego are Carnival and Holland America with the occasional Princess! Royal Caribbean needs to send us a really nice ship over here!


    Also, just as a reference, in no way on our cruise on the Monarch did we ever feel that the ship was older than most, and we had a great time, unlike the Klassy Kruise it seems

  9. ^^ I rode my first time in the back row, outside seat and loved it still! It was a little rough but nothing un-bearable!

    Right. You got lucky. Don't listen to this advice! I've done the outside back row and literally had the crap beaten out of me. Like I said before, take your first ride in the front row, inside seat. Don't listen to anyone try to tell you differently!!!


    --Robb "Seriously, TRUST ME on this!" Alvey


    Listen to the man, I've rode it once, Robb's rode it probably 100+ times!

  10. For the people who don't use/have a Facebook, here are some other improvements being made in the park that they have shared with us:


    - Replacing wood to the station for Logger's Revenge.

    - Repainting Sky-Glider cars, Fireball, Logger's Revenge, Cliffhanger Cars,.

    - As from the SCBB Facebook: "The entire Giant Dipper station will be repainted inside and out! Including some cool lighting, window, wood and vinyl enhancements!"

    - Repainting the large "Giant Dipper" sign with new colors.

    - Rebuilding stairs for the Sky Glider.

    - Freefall is getting a new lift ramp.

    - Replacing Cyclone.

    - Building Undertow.


    All these have been posted with pictures! Go check them out!


    Here is the new sign for the Giant Dipper:


    Old sign in the upper left-hand corner for comparison!
