  1. I think this is right on. How many parks with a B&M 7-looper budget don't have one already? Parks are either working with less expensive companies for their inversion-heavy rides, or they're filling out their lineup with other B&M products.
  2. At my peak weight I was still able to fit relatively comfortably on the one at Valleyfair, and these look like the same seats. For reference, there are still a number of things I can't fit on right now.
  3. It’s going to be a busy year.... Worlds of Fun Adventureland Valleyfair Mall of America Six flags great America Six Flags St. Louis Silver dollar city Cedar point Las Vegas Knotts Six flags magic mountain Disneyland Universal studios Hollywood Universal Orlando Maybe: Kings dominion California’s great America
  4. Mamba, but I'm sure Phantom's Revenge will take that spot when I eventually ride it.
  5. Hard to choose a favorite, but honestly - Any of the "classic" style ones where the trough is largely embedded in the ground, and winds through a natural, scenic environment. Ever since Valleyfair's was removed I've missed that kind of ride. However, I still have a great appreciation for more modern flumes. Its one of my favorite ride types in general and one of the things I feel no park is truly complete without.
  6. "Maybe I'll be myself when I'm somebody else" MIKA - Rio
  7. I experienced this at IAAPA back in 2015, and so far it's the only implementation of VR that I liked. Glad to hear they're making it consistently available.
  8. ^I need to get home to my computer and look at how its installed again, but it is a manual set. You will find it under either walls or scenery and you need to manually build the pieces onto the ride. It's time consuming but is a fairly flexible set to work with as a result.
  9. I had a blast working Supreme Scream at Knotts. The ride rarely goes down, has lots of different positions, and you get to sit in air conditioning when you're on controls/dispatch. Grouping during 3 tower operation was one of my favorite positions. You had to think quickly in order to keep up, but it wasn't crazy enough to actually be stressful. It also helped that fastlane merged at the grouping area, so you were never in a position of telling guests that someone else would be taking their spot. It's also just fun to work at a ride lots of people are scared of. I enjoyed convincing people to face their fears.
  10. ^^ Hades's pre lift along with Cyclopse's 2nd and final hills are some of my all-time favorite airtime moments
  11. Because it doesn't fit the theming and it destroyed the lagoon. Exactly! It's not so much that it looks bad now, but that it wrecked something that looked much better.
