  1. Florida resident rates are for Florida residents. You can take your chances and hope they don't ask for your ID, but in many cases they will. And if they do, and you aren't from Florida, you will have to go to Guest Relations and upgrade your ticket. This can be time consuming especially when just getting to the park. So really it's up to you how much the difference is and how much frustration you may or may not want to have to put with if they check your ID and there is a long line at GR in the morning. That's what i figured, just wanted to verify before buying. Thanks Robb!
  2. Hey all, I did a search on the interwebs and on this thread and couldn't find my answer so i'll go ahead and ask. I'm heading to USO and IOA in may and looking at tickets. I'm going with a friend who lives in FL. Would she be able to buy me a ticket at the resident price or will they check my ID at the gate? I'm fine paying full price if have to but I'd like to save some money as i'm sure everybody does . Thanks in Advance Harper
  3. What did Valleyfair ever do to you? Why are you so evil? The park already has plenty of mediocre coasters. Hahaha, Ok, not VF?
  4. While I do enjoy the iconic location and the photogenic nature of Mantis, put me in the camp of a relocation. I don't see Cedar Fair putting hype and money into converting a less than decent ride into a slightly better ride. I'm all for seeing Mantis move to MiAdv, Dorney or Valleyfair, (preferably MiAdv as that park could use the most love in my opinion) and CP putting in something new for 2015 or 2016. Cedar Fair has been pushing B&M to their limits recently and with Holiday World getting the first launched beemer, then maybe they've got a few more new tricks in their bucket that we've yet to see
  5. After my 6 laps on Manta SWSD yesterday I noticed that after the sun went down and with the cooler temps those trains were flying. The brakes before the second launch were damn near stopping the trains before sending them down the launch and caused an uncomfortable jolt after whipping into that straight.
  6. Awesome report! I've had my eye on this park ever since moving to Phoenix. I'd love to make it up there one day and get my first credit on several different coaster types .
  7. Most flats will make me think twice about a second ride. What I find even more weird is I have a threshold for inversions. 7 or more on a coaster and I need to take it easy for a bit after riding, yet I can lap a 6 inversion coaster countless times with no issue.
  8. I thought about Legoland as well but time and mostly money are holding me back. To be honest I managed to barely sneak in SeaWorld as it is haha.

  10. ^We're staying in Oceanside so it'll be a bit of a drive. But one of the points of the trip was my niece wanting to see a bit of CA so it works out. I'll deal with whatever comes and I'll keep my fingers crossed that the majority of the crowds will be hanging out by the convention center haha.
  11. I've finally managed to get my trip to San Diego scheduled and after getting everything set for next week Wed-Fri. After getting everything booked and planned out I realized that next week is ComiCon. Does anybody happen to know if this is going to make it a little more crazy than a usual Friday? Also going to spend Thursday at the beach and Belmont
  12. I'll be a little selfish and say Phoenix AZ haha. I can't afford trips all over the country just yet and with LA being a 6 hour drive a one day park adventure quickly becomes a weekend. We've already got a Wet 'n' Wild and plenty of room for some expansion in the Northwest/West valley. Phoenix needs some good fun.
  13. It looks like I'll be at the park for the first time next week. During my visit I'll break 100 credits but there's my issue. What coaster to be #100, Xcelerator or Montezooma's? The first Intamin rocket or what will most likely be the only Anton shuttle loop I'll ever ride? Please help me decide haha.
  14. I was there last summer and Timbers was running amazingly. Surprisingly smooth compared to my previous memories from trips before, at least the front half of the train, as we moved closer towards the rear it started to get a little uncomfortable but by no means unbearable. It was really the only reason I went while visiting family, that and getting my Thunderhawk credit (my first and only SLC credit currently haha). It's still an absolute airtime machine and even after lapping it about 15 times throughout the half day we spent there I was still ready for more. Definitely and underrated and overlooked ride in my opinion. The park does have a ton of room for expansion and not only needs a thrill ride or two but another fantastic coaster as well. A nice B&M or Intamin to get them that one step closer to competing with SFGAm.
  15. I used to be about simply re-tracking/slight layout adjustments to help out MS, that is until seeing and understanding what RMC can do. I'd be perfectly fine seeing an NTAG type remodel as long as there is still some sort of massive structure in that area of the park. The main reason I love MS is because of it's jaw dropping structure.
