  1. Negative: new ride not open Positive: less chance of overcrowded hell.
  2. ^^-- By quality, Supes and Wild One are the stars. Your personal choice for #3. I might take Roar but Jinx is more popular and good. Batwing for somebody. I enjoy Firebird sometimes but started riding it for shorter lines first.
  3. ^^-- That's definitely not SFA's top 3 even by line length on average, but going by lines, I'd say Nighthawk might be the most popular ride at Carowinds. Throughput is poor on the awful, but funny, things though. Anyway, due to SFA being SFA, they'll run Batwing until it dies or they close the place. It may even outlast Mind Eraser as it's a few years younger.
  4. The actual space occupied by rides is piddly. Of course, some of those many buildings might have something of interest if I'd ever been there. But from maps view, the infield of Hellcat is large enough for a standard Raptor. And, to complete my fantasy, the whole purpose of a custom launched Golden Horse mine train is to wind around everywhere. Fitting in an existing coaster with a distinctive shape could be a problem though.
  5. I was there too! Definitely got some Wild One rides once it finally (re)opened, 2nd best ride in the park. I hadn't ridden Mind Eraser for a while, actually enjoyed it more than Firebird this time! Got a couple pops of inverted air in the back row and my ears weren't cold anymore . 2 train ops on Superman was so welcome.
  6. Park looked pretty good to me last year and they have months to work on it before opening every day. It's so much better than 10-15-20 years ago. SFA was my temporary home park for a while last year and it really is decent when you don't have 2 better parks closer by.
  7. It does look likely it won't be "The Best Coaster in the World" after all, but that still leaves some room before it sucks.
  8. ^^-- unless the rest of the coaster is also mostly underground, everything after the first drop would be rather lackluster.
  9. Back in December, Firebird was missing from the newly upgraded SFA website. They eventually caught the problem.
  10. The Rocket at Ocean View Amusement Park. I recall passing it several times (mid-70s) and parents would never stop. I had chances to ride Hercules at Dorney and Rolling Thunder at GrAdv but for others disinterest. Lesser loss there though. Steel Vengeance. Not sure when it went down but it was possible for me to ride it, or I could have stayed another day sort of on speculation, which just sounded frustrating (it did reopen sometime the next afternoon). 1000 mile trip with no specific plan to revisit. CP was good and I made a point to just enjoy it but that burns a bit at every mentio
  11. That deal makes a lot of sense and typically would work better for me than Platinum. Not as good as giving away the whole thing like SF, but that makes little sense.
  12. I considered some criticism and then noticed ... Best Parks by Top 25 Overall Coasters: 1. Cedar Point (3) 2. Kings Dominion (2) 3. Liseberg (2) and all the others in order of their one coaster on the list And tomorrow someone else will claim BGW>KD for coasters again.
  13. If we're going to open the past, Carowinds 1998, first time I went. Hurler was the best ride in the park -- running great, but still... what is now a top-heavy park before all its top. If any park in this area might be mentioned in this thread, it would be SFA. I still can't figure out why anyone would say BG has a better lineup than KD. It may actually come true with Pantheon ... Incidentally, don't judge KD if you haven't ridden Racer with the new lift synchronizer, a good race on it is amazing.
