    Well, they might just think you're weird if you reride too much. That's why I said take occasional breaks.

    I could care less what some 17 year old ride OP thinks of me. Without me, he would be a taco technician. That said, I have not marathoned a coaster since I was 14, but if these old bones would let me I would.

    My old bones let me, and I do! Cycles of 9 or 10 at a time at least. 9x Skyrush this summer, 10x Diamondback a couple years ago, last year was Griffon... when the feeling hits us (and the line is short) it's go time. Never on an Arrow nowadays though

  2. Also why are they still calling them selves the coaster capital?

    Because what is the "coaster capital?" The park with the most coasters? The best coasters? With the best coaster operations? The most coasters with a 48" or over height restriction? There isn't any definition. So I think if Cedar Point wants to keep calling themselves the "Coaster Capital" I think they have every right to.

    From a few pages back, but excellent point. Remember that SFGAm still boasts that they are the "cleanest theme park in America" lololol

  3. Well Im glad someone else agrees about Skyrush's restraint complaints. Some people really are as soft as Charmin on here.

    See my recent "disagreed with" post in the Hersheypark thread re: Skyrush. Are you kidding me? It's elementary. this is also why stand-ups get such a bad rap. Sure they're painful, but can be learned. Nobody wants to give them a second chance to learn how to ride though. I am so-so on Mantis, no true hate. I can say that I actually enjoyed Green Lantern at SFGAd this summer, because Mantis tought me how.

  4. --Rude kids who are old enough to know better. Especially when they jump in front of you to wash their hands in the restroom and then take their sweet time using the air dryers to dry them off.

     

    They may have jumped in front of you but these aren't the rude kids, they washed their grubby paws. Watch how many bypass the sinks entirely, then touch your lap bar, seat belt, hand rail, counter at every food window, change that you'll be given at those windows, every souvenir you've bought... these are the rude ones Please jump in front of me to wash your hands!

  5. We actually saw a couple teens get ejected for line jumping at Volcano last summer. Oh, the sweet satisfaction. The "lifeguard chair" was manned at the time, and a second security worker extracted them.

     

    At SFGAd three weeks ago, after being blatantly and forcefully pushed past many times, a couple clean looking kids earnestly asked to get by because their parents were "up there". I thought I'd be the good guy, since they asked so politely and seemed honest, so my group sidled to the rail to let them through. Once we got to the switchbacks where we could clearly see them ahead of us, how strange it was that their parents were their same ages. Frustrating. They had their game down pat.

     

    My list of peeves must include people who use strollers like icebreaker barges to blast their way through crowds then look at you like you're the dick when they shove their baby into your ankles.

  6. Lightning Racer - (x1) 6/10: Rode Lightning side with a quick 10-15min wait. Doesn't deliver much aside from the racing aspect but it could be a lot worse as far as roughness goes. Wish this ride had some airtime.

     

    I actually really enjoyed LR. I'm not big on woodies usually, unless they are named El Toro or significant otherwise (Beast). But I found LR to have a really cool layout on both sides. In line there was a kid bellowing how "red always wins no matter what" and on my very first ride, my green train came in first

  7. Cedar Point suffered a power loss tonight:

     

    Cedar Point Loses Power

     

    SANDUSKY, Ohio — According to people at the famous theme park, Cedar Point experienced a power surge Sunday evening – stranding people on some rides for nearly an hour.

     

    FOX 17 freelancer Jon Beckett says the surge happened around 7:30 p.m., while he and his girlfriend were on the Iron Dragon – a suspended roller coaster. Beckett says they were stuck hanging from the coaster for about 20 minutes.

     

    Across the park, Beckett says the Millennium Force – another traditional roller coaster – was stuck for almost an hour. Cars on the track halted near the bottom of one of the coaster’s large climbs.
