  1. If you need to cool off at Mt. Olympus, you can give the scary wave pool Poseidon's Rage a shot. Bouncing wildly off strangers is an interesting way to meet new people.
  2. Moosejaws is a very popular spot to eat in the Dells, so getting a table might be kind of difficult depending on the influx of tourists. If you are able to pay a visit, however, I would definitely recommend it. The pizza there is great and the place has its own microbrewery, so feel free to try some Wisconsin beer or just some homemade root beer. The theming in the restaurant is pretty cool too, but obviously the main draw is the free paper moose antlers that you can proudly wear around and show off. They even have the PT Cruisers with the moose lying on top of them. It's too weird to pa
  3. Incredible. A huge thanks to the gang from Kolmarden for keeping us posted and for building this monster in the first place. This is definitely a ride I'd be willing to cross oceans for.
  4. People are excited about the layout or the colors, and I'm just sitting here happy that the ride has a nice roar to it. No one ever accused me of being the most normal person they ever met. It does look like a very good ride, and it's close enough that a trip might not be a bad idea. Just kind of stinks that I was just in that neck of the woods a little over two weeks ago.
  5. Please tell me they're planning on playing Barry White's greatest hits as ambience. Or at least some really really cheesy porno music.
  6. I consider myself a nice person and I know it sounds kind of terrible to say, but I'm relishing in the overwhelmingly negative response the release is getting. Rollercoaster Tycoon is maybe my favorite game of all time, and to see it get treated this way breaks my heart. I only see it fitting that the developers and Atari are being lambasted for disrespecting the franchise the way they have, and it'll only make the release of Planet Coaster all the better.* *As long as Frontier stays the course and makes sure Planet Coaster is the game we all dream of.
  7. If I didn't live so far away from you Bill, I would be tempted to send you a care package of Wisconsin cheeses. I live right down the road from a state-champion cheese producer, and if a place wins a state championship for cheese in Wisconsin, they must be something pretty special. And, from what I've tasted, they definitely are. Tell you what, if you swing through the frozen dairyland on a TPR trip or something in the future, I'll be sure to hook you up.
  8. But Robb, the new owners of the Big Dipper need to replace some of the wood to get it running again in top form. I mean, how much would they have to replace? I wouldn't think the ride would endure that much wear and tear, since gravity is a lot lower at its new home (fittingly) ON THE MOON!!!!1!
  9. There's just something about this project that I find really appealing. The whole ride seems to flow really well. I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
  10. Even if the ride won't be open during the winter months, it should look gorgeous dusted with snow like the way it is now. I really hope I can find a way to ride this fine piece of engineering someday.
  11. From what I remember from one of Robb's previous reports from Nigloland, the Pinfair inverts are actual rather fun and smooth, if not overly thrilling. On the other hand, from what I've seen, Tornado may be, without question, one of the most awful rides ever created. It even appeared dangerously rough back when it had the corkscrew - I'm willing to wager that the corkscrew wasn't removed solely for maintenance reasons...
  12. Hey there TPR, we were looking to finally take a trip to the Ozarks and experience Silver Dollar City for the first time this coming week, so I had a few of the usual questions. Any lodging you would recommend around the area? I know that the Bluegrass & BBQ festival is going on, so how bad of crowds should we expect? Any specific eating stops around the park we shouldn't miss? Thanks in advance.
  13. The zip line was still being set up when I visited. I would have given it a try, but it would have been tough to climb over all of the construction barriers around the area. Well dang it, if I had known that beforehand I would have went to find it for myself. I didn't check out any of the arcades, so unfortunately I can't say. I sure hope it's still there though. Sorry it took me a bit to get everything in order and respond, but yes, I rode the log flume and I had a great time. There were plenty of things to look at before and during the ride. I had heard it was a pretty good
  14. Hello there TPR, LoneRider here. This past summer I was lucky enough to land an internship working with a railroad contractor, and while the experience was not quite what I hoped, I did manage to see some new places and try some new things: eating beef tongue, operating an excavator, and fulfilling one of my life goals of driving a train (okay, it was a pickup with hyrail gear, close enough!). Since a majority of the internship was spent in St. Paul, I was able to visit Nick Universe and Valleyfair, the two major Minnesota parks, for the first time. So buckle your seatbelts and make sure y
  15. I did notice that too. The cameraman certainly should have seen that and cut his losses and waited for the next ride to do the speed run, instead of road raging, barreling into her, and breaking every bone in her spine.
