  1. I visited Cedar Point last Thursday,and I had a great time. Gemini was the best coaster of the day. Luckily I went on the coolest and less crowded days of the week.Ride by Ride Recap: Iron Dragon-Fun,my first suspended coaster.Hopefully I ride a few more in my lifetime. Wave Swinger-Fun and intenser than Dollywood's swing ride. Thunder Canyon-Bad water ride,painful even,doesn't compare to any of Dollywood's water rides.(Note:Both flumes were closed.) Antique Cars-Nice and relaxing. Cedar Creek Mine Ride-Classic Mine Train fun. Tilt-a-Whirl-Fun and I think a little intense for the Children's Area.. Woodstock Express-Fun,most intense Junior coaster I've rode. Junior Gemini-The real Kiddie Coaster here,got the credit while I could with my sister.It is a surprise that this was Intamin's first coaster. Gemini-Best coaster of the day.Only rode Red. Monster-Fun classic ride. Corkscrew-Fun,first looping coaster. Super Himalaya-Fast and Fun. Sky Ride-Nice and relaxing. Matterhorn-Fast and Fun Scrambler-Fun. Blue Streak-Roughest Coaster of the day,still a good classic rickety woodie.It still raddled my brains. Diaster Transport-Got the credit before it is supposed to be removed.Cool and fun,but seems like Cedar Point isn't really keeping it up to date. Space Spiral-Nice and relaxing,but the windows were so dirty you could barely see out them. Suggestions:More indoor and water rides,a new woodie(GCI,Gravity Group,or even RMC.),and a new sky viewing ride. I hope to come back soon because I didn't get ride several rides I wanted to such as Raptor. Here is a couple of Off-Rides I took at Cedar Point: Mantis:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nE4D57bKrV8 Skyhawk:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4h3oO3uD4U8
  2. Things are really getting crazy with this coaster since I last checked. This equals a 2013 Silver Dollar City trip.
  3. Just to let you know this takes place in Southwest South Carolina which is very flat. Also I remember that all the trees looked virtually the same,but I'll try to get a little variety as the park moves along and grows. Since the owner of the land hasn't touched a lot of the land or trees is why the is a whole lot of variety since it was majorly a large pine forest.The Garden is all the same color because the she knew his favorite colors were yellow,orange,and red.(She made it a completely flower garden.)Thanks for the suggestions and I'll use some of them.
  4. Augusta Newspaper May 4,1984:Amusement Park Coming to Local Area North Augusta Wood Park is now becoming an amusement park.The park,a heavily wooded pine forest that includes a pond,memorial garden,cemetery,and mini railroad ride,has always been owned by the Hays family.Originally the land was bought by the Hays family in 1850,they built a manor,which is now replaced by 1920's style house,and when family members died they made a cemetery.In 1940 the house was owned by Bill and Mary Mays who had four children.When word of the attack on Pearl Harbor came through Bill instantly joined the Army.He was killed in 1944,and when Mary heard this she was very sad and depressed.After the war she ordered a Memorial Garden be built to everyone who died in the war,let local families who had a family member die be buried in the family cemetery,and ordered a mini railway be built because one of Bill's favorite things was trains.The land was now opened to the public,and as years passed by one by one the children moved away,she was alone.Until 1979 when she partnered with a young local businessman to change the park into another one of his husband's passions amusement parks.So it finally developed this year. Known facts about the park: -It will still be called North Augusta Wood Park -The park will have two roller coasters,a carnival style area,and various attractions spread through out. Here are some pictures of the park at it's current state:Shot0041_A.bmp Overview of the park,it is very wooded with pine. Shot0042_A.bmpFront of the Mays manor. Shot0043_A.bmpBack of the manor.

Shot0052_A.bmpAnother view of the cemetery Shot0053_A.bmpOne last final of the overview of the park. I do think this is a improvement of my previous park.
  5. T'was I! I'm not exactly a regular poster on here. But at least you can put a face to the username now. And yes, just look at my face to see what I thought of Thunderhead. Seriously though. I LOVE this coaster. So wild! So relentless! Once over the lift hill, there is no letting up. Without a doubt my favourite ride at the park. Was wondering when I'd get round to riding a 'thrilling' GCI woodie and Dollywood provided me with just that! It was great to finally visit this park after years of pining/dreaming/daydreaming. The architecture is amazing and the landscaping is beautiful. I instantly fell in love with the parks 'natural' setting. Mystery Mine was fantastic! I kept away from POV's so effects/layout took me by complete surprise (as these sort of rides should). The ride sure likes to jerk you about. But then what should one expect with an out of control mine cart! Tennessee Tornado is now my favourite Arrow Looper. Both the layout (especially the big 'ol loop) and the landscaping rock. That and the fact it's so darn smooth! Wild Eagle was worth it for the views alone. The ride experience itself didn't exactly blow me away, but I still had FUN on this thing! Queue's weren't too bad for a Saturday. I certainly got my money's worth ride count wise! And that was without purchasing Q2Q. I would LOVE to return to this fantastic theme park some day. So roll on their next major roller coaster. I've heard if the 2013 RMC coaster at Silver Dollar City is a success,Dollywood could possibly get a new wooden roller coaster in a few years. Also I'd say the next attraction at Dollywood is a new water ride of some sorts.
  6. Possible zero-G roll on a wooden coaster,hmm!Now I'm really interested.
  7. I guess no. Would you eat 30 pieces of bacon in a hour?
  8. Maybe Steel Bronco after the Denver Broncos,or something like that.
  9. When I had to ride a bus standing up to get to our parking spot after I went to a Vols game with my Dad.I was literaly floping around as we went up hills and around turns.
  10. So Far: Dollywood(3) Later: Cedar Point Multiple more Dollywood visits Any smaller parks I can go to,which is probably two to none.
  11. Here is Dwight Howard on Expedition Everest.It is really funny to see a NBA player on a roller coaster.
