  1. Kentucky Kingdom - do not head to Storm Chaser if you're there at opening that's pretty much where everyone goes first. I would head to Thunder Run or Kentucky Flyer first and then check out the line for Storm Chaser or Lightning Run. Be Prepared for slow dispatch times on all rides and waterpark being very crowded anytime during the summer. I'm not a fan of SLC's but I've heard T3 can beat you up.... also another good coaster for the first one of the day would be Roller Skate.
  2. well at least Six Flags didn't just up and pull out and leave things abandoned and also take two rides with them, they could easily do that at one of the less maintained parks... lol
  3. I know both of my kid's trips to HW were in May... the lines weren't horrible, it just depends on how many schools show up that day.
  4. this is becoming the norm, I did my Computer Science Bachelor's degree totally online and never stepped foot in a classroom while working full time.
  5. Most of the school groups stay more in the dry park from my experiences so the lines usually are filled with school kids during the day.
  6. I agree about having to be on your phone all the time at any Disney property would suck, that's supposed to be quality family time not play on your phone, but then again anytime you go out to eat everyone around you is usually on their phones instead of spending time as a family.
  7. I think you're right the layout won't change, I think looking at the crossover in the picture I think they might mean that the elevation will change at the tunnel entrance, like the drop in will go lower and then the crossover will move to above the drop-in... just how I'm reading it.
  8. Agreed, Grandfather's Mansion, and if you're not careful you can easily miss the entrance to it. SDC doesn't really make it too obvious we kind of accidentally passed the entrance when we were there.
  9. What I'm getting from it and I could be wrong is they're redoing the geometry so instead of dropping down and then coming back up possibly maybe start out on the bottom near the tunnel and then climb up the helix?
  10. I'm just going into the Carnival trip next year as being at Walmart for 5 days and an open mind. I'm more excited about actually getting a passport and traveling out of country going to Mahogany Bay and Cozumel and then back to Tampa. It'll be all sorts of interesting.
  11. One good thing about them working on the drop into the helix is maybe they'll get rid of the trim brake that was there, we can hope anyways.
  12. This sounds like a story I heard on the news last night, the employees of the Candlemaker plant in Mayfield are hiring attorneys and are going to sue the company for not allowing them to leave when the storm hit, seriously an EF4 tornado is bearing down on you and you want to go outside, if the company let the employees leave there would have been more than the 8 unfortunate deaths from that company.
  13. My gf and I are looking at a Carnival cruise for 5 days to Mexico, should I be wary of Carnival or is it pretty decent? This will be my first ever cruise.
  14. I haven't found any new about the park but does anyone know if they suffered any damage from the 3 tornados that hit Bowling Green?
  15. Honestly I'm surprised that DW is keeping LR going, the thing that keeps popping into my head is the return on investment.... it can't be that great because it's constantly down.
  16. I agree about the name, Arieforce... come on... I could see something like Aeroforce.
  17. Just something I've always wondered before but why not use an air sprayer as opposed to rollers to do repaints, seems like it'd be more cost efficient and would go on better.
  18. I totally agree and I'm interested to see what they will do with Kentucky Kingdom now. I think this could be a very positive thing for Louisville in a few years as long as they can put up with dealing with the Fair Board.
  19. I have to agree with Bert, American Thunder was the best coaster when I was there this summer.
  20. This is tragic and this is going to be a problem for the park now. I'm not going to put any on the parents or whoever the little girl was riding with, but when I rode rides with my kids I never did mine until I made sure their belts were buckled. It all comes back on the 2 operators though, they could have kept her alive.
  21. My family and I had stayed in one of the cottages when I was 8. I had so much fun that week so much has changed since then. Superstition Mountain didn't have the lift, it went into the mountain then came out the top and around that turn, there was a wooden toboggan ramp that came down off the buildings and into the lake right at the end of the beach you skipped quite a few times, the only roller coaster was the Jet one. The skiing show was awesome, they had a small dock with AstroTurf on it you could sit on and the skiers would jump up on it and slide across it no more than a foot away from you. I loved Frankenstein's Castle, went through it with my Dad, scared the crap out of me.
