  1. Wow! Yelp looks great. Thanks! Thanks! Jamestown Island/National Historic site for sure. Walking through Williamsburg might give us our fill, although we don't mind paying extra. I don't really understand the draw on the Governor's Palace. It seems to be a pristine replica. There just doesn't seem like a ton we want to do there. We're fascinated by the Jamestown history we recently reviewed, and the extreme hardships faced.
  2. I never found the park to be very busy at all. But, it's been several years since our last visit and we never go near holidays.The longest waits I've seen are for Lightening Run from the afternoon into the evening. I never witnessed more than a station wait on Storm Chaser. May the odds be ever in your favor.
  3. My wife and I are visiting the park Friday, 07/19. First time in 7 or so years at one of our favorite parks. Our little girl will not be with us, so we're primed for our rare time to ride the big rides. It's bitter sweet. We always get QQ Unlimited, and we plan on doing so again... Or at least I do, unconditionally. Is QQ still a big time saver? Are there any restrictions for QQ on Pantheon, such as the number of rides allowed? Equally as important, we want to visit Jamestown and Williamsburg. We're honestly more interested in Jamestown than Williamsburg. Is it possible to cram both of them into one day? We're in the area for three days. We want to take advantage of Kings Mill Resort and lounge by the pool for a day. Here is our agenda: Tuesday - Fly into DC and get to the resort early evening. Wednesday - History Thursday - Take advantage of childless relaxation. Friday - All day at the park. We're very clean eaters, so a cheat day at BGW will make us feel like trash for at least a day. This is why we must save BGW for our final day. My wife and I have spent 4-5 days at BGW, but we never explored the area. May I please have some tips on must visit places to eat and history suggestions? Thanks
  4. 1) I wonder how many people got triggered when she said "The Maverick." B...) Is this and upcharge attraction? I'll pay for it.
  5. Land clearing followed by rebar and concrete pouring with pinpoint accuracy. -vs. - Bolting prefab steel into place...
  6. Schnitzelbank authentic German restaurant. ^^ I can't imagine going to HW World and not visiting this place. It's always a highlight of our trip. Jasper, IN has a lot of decent restaurants, but you CAN NOT miss Schnitzelbank. It's about 20'ish minute away. I'll ask Robb nicely to ban you if you don't go. Be aware, Jasper is in a different time zone. We stayed at the Fairfield Inn last time, which was a very nice hotel, but expensive. Fairfield seems to be making a run as a middle-upper class option. We found it comparable to most Hyatts and Hiltons. I suggest taking two days at Holiday World. Go one day for the dry park and one day for the water park. I understand this is not always possible, but it's ideal in my opinion. Go to the German joint after the water park to avoid shirtless bloat the following day, lol.
  7. Makes me wait in anticipation even more for Six Flags to put its stamp on Cedar Fair.
  8. Eat at Roosters. Cold beer and bomb ass chicken wings/strips.
  9. Am I the only one who sees the irony in digital menus at the 1904 Hotdog location? If anyone hasn't been to Grafton, IL to ride the Alpine coaster, it may be worth it. You have to take a chairlift to the top. You can eat at the winery with a fantastic view and typically live music. Our four-year-old-daughter didn't want to ride the alpine coaster. I made her, despite my wife being reluctant. She loved it and wanted to ride two more times after that. It wasn't a cheap day, but oh well.
  10. Can't common sense play in as a factor, though? This is like the Facebook argument someone tried to start with me saying every single animal's life is just as valuable as a child's, because we're all in the mammal species so we're all equal. (I actually just deleted my Facebook app again because of it...) At a certain point you have to put aside the technicalities.
  11. Quite the opposite for us in 2018. I'm looking forward to eventually being able to enjoy it.
  12. The last three times I went to Cedar Point, I went in mid-June. Just shoot for whatever is available first from Sun-Friday and go from there. I don't think you're going to get nightmare scenario (pun intended) Halloween event FL situation where you will wait over an hour. Will you maybe wait 30+ minutes for some rides? Yeah. It's Cedar Point. But, with 3 days of FL, you can take your time and get everything in. The alternative is to go earlier in June when the park isn't open as late, and just make the most of it. I'd personally rather ride less and have 10-10 to come and go from Breakers as I pleased, and not get to ride as much. The combination of Breakers, Cedar Point, and FL is a well rounded experience regardless. If less rides and 'a little' more wait during the day means I get to view the park lit up, so be it. I always take my chances on that. My other advice is when (not if) you see Maverick's FL spilling out into the midway, just pass by and check it again later when you're in the area. That FL queue is either feast or famine. Good luck with your health problems. I hope they don't get in the way to the point where you can have an awesome time. I'm not a fan of long narcissistic TR's anymore, but I'd definitely like to see yours when it's all over.
  13. Just looking at the schedule, I'd go Sunday 06/16, Monday 06/17, and Tuesday 06/18. All 10am-10pm operations. If you can swing it, just do FL for all. How often do you get to go to the park? We don't even ride a ton, but when we go to the parks we always buy FL+. We can walk around end enjoy the park instead of waiting in line. If I had to do without it for one day, I'd pick the middle day. Just chill by the pool or something. Beer/cocktails included. FL or bust. Life is too short. (if you can responsibly afford it)
  14. I'm getting pumped for the 2024 season so I can ride Joker in June when the park goes to full operating hours. I also wanted to hype my daughter up to ride the carousel. Carousels are fun rides for the whole family. I can't believe there aren't any recent videos of it. Anyway, I was looking for testing videos for both and I couldn't find any. I must not be searching right. My youtube account kept showing me videos of a roller coaster called All American Tripple Loop at a small regional park called Indiana Beach.
  15. I've always had luck going the first week of full operations. Meaning Mon-Sun 10am-10pm.
  16. Step 1: spray chemicals Step 2: load trains half empty Result: More wait and more uncomfortable ride. I miss those days.
  17. It bothers me that people think the locker situation was unplanned, regardless of what the park says. They're going to make money off of you however they can do it. It's business. Pay an employee to help with free locker confusion vs. make money on locker rentals.
  18. So their vertical construction of the ride itself looks nearly complete. Meanwhile, at our carousel....
  19. Looks like Patriot at Indiana Beach should be opening this year. I wonder if it will open before the carousel. I think the timeline for it to get disassembled, shipped, refurbished, and reconstructed at Indiana Beach was shorter. All of that, yet Carousel didn't even kill anyone.
  20. Unless the plan included making everyone pay for lockers.
