  1. I'd say your were confused. If I'm basing it off the correct theme, The EVIL Within maze is based off a video game, not a movie Great review. I wish I were a bit closer to Australia to be able to check this out.
  2. I'm excited to be going to the WCB at Knott's this year. I wanted to just have something clarified. Check in for Knott's will from 6:30 to about 7:50 right? I know it says 10 minutes before ert, but the backstage Sidewinder tour is throwing me off. Thank you
  3. Most of your... rant, I totally agree with. Universal is getting a tad obnoxious by just cloning their attractions at one coast or the other. I am excited (ish) about all the new stuff, but, besides being my "home" Universal park, I'd rather save up and make the trek out to Florida for most of this stuff. You then pulled a 180, though. Disney was doing the whole "clone" thing for a while. And still is a little, with Little Mermaid and stuff. However, they are breaking the monotony a bit. I personally have never been to Florida, but if I ever get out there, I look forward to riding Expedition Everest, Test Track, their Mansion/Tower/Space because I know from several sources that they are vastly different. Anyways, I'm sure we can dance the issue to death on Disney, so I'll just leave that as is I certainly hope USH can into its own with these new additions, but it definitely is feeling more than ever like it's trying to save a few dollars with clones from the East Coast
  4. As a piece of advise from a local to all those coming from out of state. This weekend is going to be hot. Dress lightly, especially at SFMM. My gf and I went last year right when the heat wave hit, and I just about passed out from heat exhaustion. A great place to eat inside the park to escape for a little bit is the Mooseburger Lodge, although I don't know how the crowds have been since YOLOcoaster opened up. See you all Sunday!
  5. What I mean by the earthquake thing is that, I feel like at least a small part of not having trackless ride vehicles is that they would obvious operate independent of anything else, meaning that if an earthquake were to occur, the brakes and other safety systems would be reliant fully on the vehicle itself. Meaning, worst comes to worst, these vehicles would be free to slide around the floor run into any other vehicle, scenery, etc. Or even flip if really bad case. That's all I meant by the earthquake codes
  6. I would love to see a Trackless Ride Vehicle system here in CA at the DL Resort. I feel like the problem will be the earthquake codes. I am aware Japan has earthquakes and they can do it. But, in the end, I feel like the govt doesn't have a giant OSHA sized stick up their butt in Japan. And they actually maintain their equipment to earthquake-fighting standards. But one can dream
  7. ^I feel like that 160 acres includes, the parking lot, Independence Hall, and Soak City. The park itself only sits on about a full city block. And it shares that space with the hotel, the south parking lot, and the Haunt warehouses backstage
  8. This is looking incredible. For me personally, I love how much attention Bud Hurlbut got. He really was the pioneer of the early dark ride, and deserves so very much recognition The park isn't near as big as you'd think. As long as the crew stays on the job, the line shouldn't get that bad. It's rare to have the park nearly its capacity. And mind you, the park is only a block large. Haha
  9. There were a couple reasons that float around about the Sky Jump's closure. The simplest is the fact that the technology of that ride was behind the times, and it would have cost way too much money to actually update the system to be fully computer controlled. Just like the Haunted Shack, they measured the cost of fixing it vs. the cost of just taking it out. We know which one won out. As for the other reason, there has always been a strong rumor that the ride closed due to a man committing suicide from the top because his girlfriend had recently broke up with him. I don't know how much that might have lead directly to them shutting it down, but as a park manager, I'd probably look at that, then look at making the system more modern and more dummy proof. And then weigh the above options
  10. ^^Sorry to hear that Robb. As a coaster enthusiast, I find the guts of how a coaster runs just as interesting as riding. I guess it helps that I'm an engineering student. This discussion about the X2 trains is rather interesting, with some interesting theories. One thing people have mentioned is the Dinoconda trains seem to do the same thing as the X2 train, whereas Eujanaika does not. I remember when it was X, and that hard rocking motion at the beginning of the ride was evident with the old trains as well. It's most likely something with the track setup that somehow was fixed in Eujanaika, but then reintroduced at Dinoconda.
  11. I read this article and was first sickened, but then I thought of DCA and smiled a little. Although not perfect, since the park is ADA compliant, there is quite a bit more restriction for the "special" privileges of disabled folks.
  12. ^Maybe I'm just out of the loop, but why would Bigfoot be under construction?
  13. ^You laugh now... There's a reason Haunt sucked even more last year than previous years... More restrictions in place to really prune that which is his moneymaker. Trust me, I wish it not. But the direction he's taking will essentially kill the event on its own. As they are doing opposite of SFMM with their log ride, they are doing opposite of USH with their Haunt event, and we've already seen where people's preferences lie
  14. It is speculation from friends who have or currently work in the park, but there has been strong news that Raffi may be trying to dumb down and eliminate Haunt altogether... Hopefully not true, but it's a scary thought to think
