  1. NebulaZ quietly opened at Adventuredome. Fun ride and a nice addition to the park. I don’t normally like spin and pukes but this ride was a lot of fun with bits of floater air. Visually this ride is stunning to look at!
  2. Yeah the lift, upper trough and pre-drop are still in place.
  3. Made a quick lap through The Adventuredome and the NebulaZ is fully built. Enjoy the photos below! It’ll be a nice addition to the park! This is the bottom of Rim Runner’s lift
  4. Nothing that the park has officially announced. I also forgot to share, I freaked out my friends on the ferris wheel, they had no idea the gondolas spin like teacups!
  5. We decided to take a quick drive (6 hours) from Vegas up to Lagoon, just north of Salt Lake City this past weekend. We had to get a haunt in this year. Even though the park was busy and mask rules are only enforced in queue and in mazes, I never felt uncomfortable as people pretty much kept their distance. Overall we had a really enjoyable visit to Lagoon. This park is very well ran, operations are smooth and queues keep moving constantly. They were loading all rows on all rides, hand sanitizer before and after each ride and before and after all haunted mazes.
  6. Thanks for sharing!! Those meatballs looked delicious!!! I miss Busch Gardens!
  7. Last weekend I decided to take a lap around the Adventuredome. The unannounced new ride (the model is a Zamperla NebulaZ) is now vertical and it looks like the ride’s queue will go through part of the trough of the old chute the chutes ride, Rim Runner. Neon Nights is still going on, on weekends, they shut off all of the parks general lighting and play up beat party music. The park isn’t very busy, but actually comfortable and for the most part people are social distancing and doing their part. Canyon Blaster is running really well and so is El Loco. I did notice a pri
  8. Has anyone been out to Lagoon recently? I am thinking of going with a couple of friends this weekend to check out Frightmares since it's really the only haunt actually running. Just wondering how crowds are and what the overall experience has been.
  9. Everything is running except Miner Mike, the park will be closed from 9/14-9/17 and 9/28-10/1
  10. Agreed!!!! We spent 2 days at the park and had a great time, still didn't ride everything because of the weather, but for what it was worth, we had a great visit with the proper expectations in place and still getting to ride Millennium Force, Steel Vengeance, Top Thrill Dragster and Maverick . Cedar Point, by far, had the best social distancing and enforcement of masks, and people generally distancing themselves. My best visits this year with compliance and just feeling safe at the parks was at Cedar Point and Universal Orlando (WDW was still closed when I went to Orlando).
  11. Thanks for sharing your report! Glad to see you guys had a great time!!!
  12. A new ride has appeared on site at The Adventuredome. From the looks of it, it looks to be a Zamperla NebulaZ!Nothing was announced by the park, but the ride is clearly visible in public view. If you are wondering what location the ride is being built at, it is being placed where the old lower reservoir for Rim Runner was, the right turn before the lift hill. Recently, it was used as a roller skating rink. The location of the ride, you can see the foundation is completed and the center hub is on its side. Ride arms sitting just outside of the park. Seats sitting just outside of the p
  13. Love the Loch Ness Monster hat! Thanks for sharing!!! Am I the only one that wishes more parks had Screamin' Swings? I find them very underrated and a ton of fun!
  14. Disappointing to hear this, mainly because the park has had time to learn from other parks that have recently opened in the US before them. I hope this changes on your next visit, and your next visit will be better!
  15. Reservation requests started this morning, was super easy to complete. Just need to have your barcode numbers handy for your Passholder ID Number, Fun Card Number or Ticket Barcodes ready for validation though their system. Excited to get down to Orlando later this month.

  19. Hey everyone! Thinking about making a trip this Friday to Hersheypark Christmas Candylane. Will anyone be up in the area and possibly interested in meeting up?
  20. Oh Carnival Vista, more negative media for this vessel. Now, Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas had a propulsion issue with one of its three Azipods, but was able to sail until its next scheduled Dry Dock. Unfortunately this same issue has hit Allure twice in the past several years, there was even a documentary on the fix of the Azipod. The problem with Carnival Vista is that it only has two Azipods while Allure of the Seas has three. I bet that having one down on Carnival Vista caused enough issues that they had to cancel sailings to fix it asap. We were on Allure with one of
  21. I must have been lucky the day I went, I rode Golijavu several times last fall and really enjoyed it! I do miss it being tucked in the corner of SFMM.

  23. Today, MGM Grand celebrates its 25th Anniversary! Here are some comparison photos from 25 years ago to today.
  24. Today is the 10th anniversary of our big snowstorm that basically shut down the city but made for some awesome rare photos!
  25. Desperado will be closed, I was told it will be open for the two week holiday and then probably closed until spring break again. Don't trust the site, and sometimes calling isn't good enough either, they will tell you it will be open and for whatever reason it doesn't. Getting a ride on Desperado is really a gamble nowadays. On another note, you have to admit, the rest of the rides in Vegas have an amazing up-time. Rare is the day you see rides down for mechanical issues here, just their normal maintenance and refurbishments.
