  1. I went to MGM Grand Adventures twice and I don't remember them having a Chaos or any flat rides like that.
  2. I am beginning to think Disneyland and other so Cal parks are not going to get permission to open this summer either unless they win some court lawsuit. They just said on the morning KTLA news that Los Angeles will not likely get to vaccinating all of the people 65 and older until June and the daily case rate is still way too high. I think it is reasonable that they refunded people's pass money instead of keeping it indefinitely. It could easily be the end of the summer before the 18 - 64 group gets vaccinated and new strains keep popping un quicker than my local pot shop. Okay, not that
  3. Sorry, I would have linked to TPR video if you had one, but this appears to be the coaster that derailed. https://rcdb.com/16892.htm
  4. I like the multi-day tickets but they need to fix the 14-day expiration from first use. The tickets need to be good for use during the entire calendar year, so I can catch a couple of seasons. They could also do something like their timeshare program where you just get a certain amount of points every payment and you can decide what days to spend your points on. This would allow the same pass to be used during peak days but you would need to spend more points on a ticket that day.
  5. https://www.ocregister.com/2021/01/14/disneyland-cancels-annual-passholder-program/ Disneyland is going membership at some point whatever that means: From the article: ... A new Disneyland membership program will be unveiled at a later date — presumably after Disneyland and Disney California Adventure reopen. “Due to the continued uncertainty of the pandemic and limitations around the reopening of our California theme parks, we will be issuing appropriate refunds for eligible Disneyland resort Annual Passports and sunsetting the current program,” Disneyland resort pres

  7. Things are not looking too good for re-opening either. Come on vaccine! Daddy needs his shot, so he can get back to coasteering.
  8. While I am sure there are places that fix up rides, Ital Inc and Rides4u ride brokers appear to sell stuff in an "as is" condition. I would guess that ride brokers don't take possession of the ride and just list it for people and negotiate the sale. The previous ride owner stores the ride until it sells and transfers.

  10. Sorry, should probably have read RCDB better if I wanted to make a list of GCIs that I have never ridden but I am willing to possibly sacrifice before Ghostrider.
  11. Maybe in the long-term, but I hope they start with the GCIs at Kings Island, Worlds of Fun or Valleyfair and leave Knott's alone until they know how well it works. I see myself being really selfish here but Ghostrider is one of the best things in the park and doesn't need to be messed with unless necessary.
  12. Spidey and Capt America should have come to help but texting Mickey is worthless!
  13. The problem with California's system is that Santa Cruz is already slipping back to the red category on adjusted cases per 100,000, and if they are like Riverside County, will be given one week to improve their numbers before getting slipped back a color category. If they go back to red, no boardwalk rides and they have to lay everyone off again. I know Riverside Country restaurants have closed their dining rooms three times since March and laid off servers/cooks and had spoiled food each time. There appears to be no limit on how many more times they can shut any of us down either.
  14. Is this the old Corkscrew? If so, I guess it sold. https://intermarkridegroup.com/roller-coasters/corkscrew-coaster-rc1403
  15. This poor kid is probably in high school and has to figure out what fat ACErs and Geo Metros are
  16. Approx 2300 lbs without gravy or fat ACErs. https://www.visitkingsisland.com/blog/2019/june/readers’-mailbag-how-much-does-a-beast-train-weigh ...

How much does a Beast train weigh? – Byron B., Dalton, GA Great question, Byron. Each car on The Beast weighs 2,300 pounds with the weight of a full train (without riders) 13,800 pounds.

  17. Oh come on now. Pick 15 Six Flags rides that are past their prime or never should have been purchased in the first place is a fun game. If they didn't want us to play, they would have given us the list. We should get prizes if we can guess them all correctly.
  18. I have not seen poor little Deja Vu since that slow loading unreliable piece of crap left Magic Mountain. it sounds like renaming it Goliath and moving it across the country to SFNE didn't fix its reliability issues? If that is true, it is possible that moving Green Lantern First Flight to La Ronde will not make it a good coaster either. Shocking!
  19. Based upon what other parks have removed over time, the following types of rides are generally in danger: wood coasters, log rides, steam trains, skyways, and anything that seems to be down most of the time anyway.
  20. This park looks like a Roller Coaster Tycoon mistake where you spent all your loan on land and paths, before you build enough rides. Just a couple of peeps walking around saying I want to go on something more exciting than Dragon Mountain.
  21. More food, no rides productions present: Knott's Berry Farm is excited to announce a new seasonal food and retail event, this time celebrating the merriest season of all, with Knott's Taste of Merry Farm. While the theme park remains closed, Christmas spirit still shines bright this year with holiday charm brimming out of every corner of the park, as Knott's wondrously transforms with enchanted décor, thousands of twinkling lights, miles of festive garland, and a variety of picturesque holiday settings, all serving as a backdrop to the tastiest holiday foods around. With over 60 uniq
