  4. Wondering if anyone else is going to the Coastin' by the Ocean event at Morey's piers this year?
  5. Not sure if there is an appetite for non-coaster trips, but I thought why not. The first half of our honeymoon was Ireland and for the most part had little to do with amusement parks or coasters. Day 1: Kilkenny, Rock of Cashel, Blarney Stone and Cork night 1. It's a rather short flight from Newark to Dublin. Drinks on the Plane Sunset Shot I see Ireland. We picked up our rental car. I feel like a better driver after dealing with small roads and driving on the left side of the road. We stopped for breakfast in Kilkenny prior to seeing the castle. Café la Coco Pancakes, Bacon & Coffee We then headed over and toured the accessible areas of Kilkenny Castle. This is the castle of my master, Guy de Lombard, wait that's not right. Old School Instagram Finidng victor a much easier than waldo. Greenery. Hey look, we are there. The next point of interest was the Rock of Cashel. Yes, it’s on a hill. Art, me thinks. Farmlands for miles, I mean kilometers. Selfies… Very old structures. The driving continued to a place most people know about, Blarney Castle, and the infamous blarney stone. I confess that heights kind of get to me. 450 on a coaster no problem, but without having something to depend on I don't enjoy being very high up. Felt very normal to wait in line for the blarney stone. Didn’t realize the surrounding areas of blarney castle were so nice. Much like NYC it was under construction… Almost time for us to go Stacy took a few photos, some with very good timing. I missed her's, so we bought theirs We finished our driving for day 1, went to the hotel in Cork and prepared to enjoy the Nightlife. Stacy catching me playing Pokemon Go in Ireland The Welcome Inn, the reason we only made it to 2 bars the first night, must stop in cork. Guinness. The Oliver Plunkett, good times. Enjoying the Oliver Plunkett. Colorful building at night, across the water. Golden balls, why, I have no idea, but they were in our hotel. The nightlife in cork was amazing. When we go back to Ireland, Cork will be on the agenda.
  6. Great to hear, the ride itself was pretty fun, but definitely could use a new theme.
  7. Well noticed a Facebook group and happy to see that Busch Gardens Williamsburg has joined, trying to make the date of September 9th work, but awesome to hear that another large park is an option.
  8. Not sure if this would be the correct thread or if a new one should created. 2017 Coasting for Kids is back. One park being Quassy Middlebury, CT on August 16, The other at Frontier City Oklahoma City, OK on September 16. http://support.gktw.org/site/PageNavigator/c4k_hmpg.html Email I received below.
  9. Patriot (CGA) Flight Deck (CGA) Medusa (SFDK) Patriot (WoF) Thunderbird Valravrn Mako Up to 58 of 62.
  10. So we did the 6PM version, and lucked out, we were the only ones on the cruise(Wine on the Rhine). You get two servings of beer or wine, and a nice cheese, fruit, and chocolate sampler. The only difference by times is the earlier(4,5,6PM) ones aren't 21+. I thought it was relaxing and you do get a tour guide for the cruise.
  11. Always a treat to read your Photo TR's Andy, especially when there's bonus hockey photos. Keep taking pictures and sharing.
  12. Heide is on our itinerary for our germany trip. Colossus being down for the year is a bit disappointing, but with the entire park being new for us, we just will have to use it as a great reason to come back.
  13. World: Score: 56 of 101 (55%) Rank: #30 of 179 users (top 17%) NA: Score: 55 of 62 (89%) Rank: #348 of 2,321 users (top 16%) Seems pretty much inline, should get some more both US and foreign B&Ms, maybe some of the will be fun...
  14. Score: 82 of 126 (65%) Rank: #148 of 1,487 users (top 11%) Can't wait to get some new ones this year.
  15. My first pick: Liseberg - Helix + Balder Some other great ones: Cedar Point - Maverick + Millennium Force SFGAdv - El Toro + Nitro Silver Dollar City - Outlaw Run + Powder Keg Hersheypark - Skyrush + Storm Runner Six Flags New England - Wicked Cyclone + Superman the Ride Kings Dominion - Intimidator 305 + Volcano Busch Gardens Tampa - Montu + Kumba Dollywood, Hansa Park may make this list after my next trip. Europa and Phantasialand probably make this list after my first trip(next summer).
  16. I took some pictures, but not really anything different than you had. However, if you are going with a group of kids(i.e. birthday party or what not), there is a bar inside for those of age. Contrary to ^
  17. Looking forward to next year at Kings Island, since the new wooden coaster and Banshee are new since my last trip. Even if the GCI has no real surprises, I am happy to see new wooden coasters being built(both KI and BGW). Not every ride/coaster needs to be balls out of control. You've got diamondback, beast, banshee, and Mystic Timbers now headlining this park, a decent amount of flats, flight of fear, a flying coaster, a suspended, and a historic wooden racer. Be happy parks are adding new coasters, your home park could be dorney...
  18. Sorry to bring back an older thread, but all I can think about is this envelope issue around 53 seconds. [youtu_be] [/youtu_be]
  19. Been pretty busy lately, but was glad to donate. Wishing the best for Jack and his family.
  20. As someone who traveled to ride batman the ride at SFFT, I think this is a nice and unique attraction for the area. Definitely looking forward to an hour ride compare to a flight to ride this type of ride, well and El Toro.
  21. For now Wicked Cyclone, having also ridden Impulse, Fury 325, Batman the Ride and Tempesto this year. Although Cannibal could take over that spot, but that trip isn't until October.
  22. I do enjoy getting a ride when its not a crazy line, but i wish the waterfall still worked, thanks six flags.
  23. Python at Busch Gardens Tampa was my first inverting coaster, with SooperDooperLooper at Hersheypark being my first coaster with a "loop".(if i remember correctly)
