  1. I'm also conflicted. I'm planning to finally ride it in June, and I wanted to experience it in all of it's rough/wild/classic glory. However, I'm sure GCI will do a great job, and the ride will be less painful than it is now, from the reports that I've heard. I hope the refurbishments can be done in a way that makes the experience more pleasant without sacrificing any of the unique and classic elements.

  2. Question for those who have gone on SFNE's Cyclone: Obviously the topper track has made it smoother. But does it make it smooth to the point where it is comparable to El Toro, or does it still have some roughness? The thing is I actually like it rough (giggity) though not to the point where it's painful, because IMO that is one of the signature characteristics of wood coasters. I still think El Toro is a phenomenal ride (#1 wood tied with Boulder Dash) but the reason that it didn't overtake Boulder Dash was because it didn't have that characteristically wooden roughness to it. The reason I'm asking about Cyclone is because since Georgia Cyclone is getting the topper track, and I might go on the New Hotness trip, I am curious as to what the result will be.

    It still has some roughness in spots, but it's not painful at all. Also, the rough spots are taken at slow speeds, so it's more like a brief bit of shakiness, then it goes back to being smooth. It's a good ride, and since Georgia's seems to have a more exciting layout, this one should be even better!

  3. ^^Amen. The operations were fantastic this summer, and the lines were constantly moving even though it seemed like there were a million people in the park. And seriously, six years (if the 2013 rumor is true) between coasters isn't THAT long, compared to many other parks. I mean, I guess you'll just have to deal with a park with only 17 coasters and a myriad of flat rides. Oh the horror.

  4. So I'm guessing there's a military base right next to it?



    But I think it's great that this can exist in such an unstable and violent area. Hopefully we will see other facilities designed for fun and entertainment come to less prosperous places. That way, the rate of development and modernization can be increased. Of course, other things are more important than leisure, but it's still a nice thing for the people of Gaza.

  5. Then again I'm not sure how popular if at all Harry Potter is over seas.

    It's very popular just about everywhere.

    I think it would be funny that if by the time they get around to building another Potterville that the craze had passsed and it is a bust.

    Wouldn't exactly call a series that has been popular for almost 15 years a "craze."


    As for my thoughts, I think that if it makes Universal money, they should do it. However I would hope that they solve some of the capacity problems at IOA that lead to disgusting crowds.

  6. I understand that many are sentimental about Log Jammer, but it wasn't exactly Splash Mountain, was it? Not only does SFMM have another flume, they still have a total of three water rides. Last time I checked, that's a lot. Not to mention that there's an adjacent waterpark. However, the article that jedimaster posted made it sound like guests will be completely water-deprived. And the idea of taking out another coaster is ridiculous to me. Especially when you consider that Deja Vu just closed, I think that the outcry over losing Ninja or Gold Rusher would be significantly greater than the anger over Log Jammer. Again, I can understand how people that rode Log Jammer as a child might be a bit upset, but come on. SFMM is creating a ton of space for whatever's coming, and I have a feeling that it's going to be top-10 worthy. I'm extremely excited about the park's future.
