    Finally time for me to visit Holiday world and I have a few questions.  I am going to go sometime in July but how long do the line for the roller coaster get on a weekend vs say a Friday? I will be knocking out Kentucky kingdoms and Holiday world in the same weekend so trying to figure out what order to do the parks. 

    Looks like they have no Liner skipper system so just trying to wait as little as I can.  I will do some of the water park but most likely will not be doing  any of the well known water slides due to have kids and not having a way to leave them alone. 

     

    Besides the coasters and The Turkey dark ride any hidden  gems I need to hit. 

    With that does Holiday world have a Parent swap system. 

     

    Robb and Elissa what's the name of the German restaurant you stopped at on your way to the park from Ohio? 

    Weekends might start out very busy until the waterpark opens but once the waterpark opens that's where the main crowd flocks and the dry side crowd dwindles rapidly so the first or two hours after park opening will be crowded but if you're skipping the waterpark you'll be good on the coasters and I'm not sure about the parent swap system but the staff are very friendly and when my two sons were younger the staff would keep an eye on either or both of my sons standing on the exit ramp waiting for me. I'd send them into the exit que while I went into the entrance que and never had any worries about them.

    I miss Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom. If that op didn't let a girl's foot get MUTILATED, then we would've still had it.

    When Herschend bought the park 3 years ago, one of the comments on the announcement was "Just be glad Six Flags didn't buy them again." I was outraged. I actually LOVE Six Flags, and I'm always sad when they lose a park. It's either one of those "SF = bad, everything else = good" entitled thoosies, or someone who judged the park entirely on the drop tower incident.

    Of course, I really only care about Six Flags because of DC.

    That was part of the issue but the main issue is Six Flags and the Fairboard had a blowout over the leasing and Six Flags basically said screw you we're out of here and vacated the premises. The Kochs dropped their interest as well for the same reasons when they were thinking about taking it over after it was abandoned.

  3. My thinking was trying to decide if it was the video that just was making it seem a slower pace or if it was the difference in the launch vs chain lift, but if it is a slower pace than that's not necessarily a bad thing because it will make it more family friendly with younger children, the one time I rode it in launch mode it was very very fun but very very fast and the whole thing was a blur from start to finish. I personally think for me if it is a slower pace that just gives me more time to enjoy the twists and turns, just my opinion.

    I would imagine that Warner Brothers would want top dollar for Looney Toons characters that have not been relevant in this   millennium or generation of children.  The few Looney Toon episodes that were on HBO Max had all the guns, dynamite and other violence censored.  It was absolutely worthless.  At least Charie Brown specials still show up at the holidays.  They will probably want a lot of money for DC superheroes when that genre is dying.  I am guessing generic coaster names and Peanuts characters are the cheaper option and it has worked for Cedar Fair.  Do you really need to ride on a coaster named Superman at Magic Mountain that is always broken or barely makes it up the tower?  How about renaming it The Barely Functional Intamin?

    I agree, but won't get on a soapbox about it.... Looney Toons has gotten the woke treatment but yet look at the FPS games out there and the violence in action movies and they label Looney Tunes as too violent, makes sense to me but I"ll hush.

    It's not a stupid idea if you're solely interested in making money. REITs can be very profitable as spinoffs. The thing is that REITs don't have the same interests as the business sitting in the space. 

    You're talking a Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom situtation here and we all know what happened there. It's a really bad idea given that Six Flags just up and closed a park and moved rides to other parks when a lease deal went south. Just my thought.

    All in all, I'm excited for the new iteration. CP could have easily pulled the plug on the ride entirely after all of the headaches that Intamin left them with in the initial product.

     

    I agree especially after what happened and the lawsuit over it, I was surprised about keeping the que in the middle as well but makes sense so it overs protection from over top.

    So the radio station I was listening to played a soundbite that said, "sorry about your penis." They immediately played Blink-182's All the Small Things.

    GOT DAYUM.

    lol that's awesome..... sounds like someone was trying to send a message after a breakup!

    Can't say I'm surprised, this was never my cup of tea but the people who went seemed to enjoy it. The prices were just too much for a lot of people who would have wanted to do this...

    "The final voyage will be September 28 through 30. In coming days, Disney will contact guests who had reservations booked for later dates about rescheduling or canceling their plans. 

    In the meantime, new reservation bookings will be paused until May 26."

    I mean the whole thing is an awesome concept for us Star War fans but honestly who can afford that much money for a 3 night stay so honestly I can't say I'm not surprised.
