  1. Good to know, the extra parking fee is what stopped me least time. Well ticket bought, I'll be there this Friday! Knowing nothing about this place I was a tad concerned at the comment earlier about security not harassing people for taking photos or being alone. I get they weren't, so good...but was this a problem in the past? I will be there solo, and given its quite a sight I would like to take photos.
  2. Ah I see parking is free for October to welcome the reopening. Great! Yes, this seems like the best possible time to go!
  3. EDIT: I am just dumb if anyone saw my post just fughetaboudit!
  4. Stoked to see this park, and the new ride, are open! After putting it off I'm finally going this week, probably on Friday. I was hoping the weekday and price would deter people and hopefully negate any slowdown do to the pandemic. Stoked, especially for SBB! Is it still pay for parking? As someone who is going alone.... has that been an issue in the past??
  5. Woo modernity! Kudos for tackling the big task. Certainly looks nice and sexy and I can't wait to try it on the phone! I am so damn slow and stupid with technology so I'll need some time to figure things out, like why can't I find where to edit my signature lol and I need to dig up my long time used MForce profile photo, but love the changes!
  6. Yup, I will conclude that, through absolutely no fault of its own, age just has gotten the better of Boudler Dash. One, we got Intamins, RMCs, and GCIs which these days really kick ass. Two, perhaps age has gotten to it physically? I used to hear about he stupid air on it, every hill, unrelenting pace and damn it sure looked like it. Well, I found it a bit underwhelming 7 years ago and honestly, despite it being a warm sunny day, it was even more so. Don't get me wrong...fun. Still a top 10 woodie (though gunna be dropping), gotta love it romping through the woods, but the first half was
  7. Oh yeah was super fun, but I thought (b/c this is what I always heard) airtime on every hill and crazy air, "you barely touch the seat before the next" and I have learned over time POVs are not a great judge, but I mean dang it did fly over all those hills. So when it wasn't that I was a bit let down but again it was not a good weather day and it was one ride. So gotta try again, but true that was years ago when I was a lot more zealous I've learned since how to ride w/o expectations getting the better of me. Well hell nothing is like RMC, and El Toro and Phoenix are untouchable but RM
  8. Nice! Now that's what I'm talking about out. Well long as BD is open on Thurs and its not supposed to rain, I'll be going! I really need that cred again. I only got 1 ride on BD last time despite being their 3/4 of a day that was dead (long story short......GP friends lol) and it was 60 degrees and cloudy/drizzly. Not best conditions for a wood coaster. It was fun not quite what I hoped for. Perhaps the conditions, overhype etc but ready to try again!
  9. Good to know. I will done with finals tomm, and the weather is clear on Thurs, so I was planning on going. Is the status of B.D. noted anywhere on the site? I will absolutely make sure to check before trekking out there.
  10. Lake Compounce. Its the nearest park to me now and I've been wanting to give Boulder Dash another try for years, (had a good but semi lackluster ride on it b/c it was like 60 degrees, cloudy, and misty) so a proper hot summer day is needed. Good thing I checked the site! Its closed today due to the storm that blew threw. Hopefully tomorrow? But I will going there soon as its open. Still not sure if I do my KI/CP/KW plan (maybe with a stop in Knoebels) esp as hours are now becoming limited, Steel Curtain not yet open etc SFNE closed so Lake Compounce may be the only park I do rest of t
  11. I couldn't find any better alternatives, so I went with the BOGO deal. Now I am sitting on the second ticket which expires at the end of September. Not sure if I'll end up using it or not. Yup same boat. IDK if anyone has inside info/better knowledge but I don't got hope for Storm Runner. Sign said "temporarily closed for the season" which I wasn't sure how to interpret..... is it temporarily or FOR the rest of the season? Temp....for the season is deliciously vague lol But doesn't seem like a good sign? Shame, it's a part of why I'd go, and if it wasn't for the fact I got a 2n
  12. Glad to hear! I'll be stopping here later on my road trip. I won't go any further than this....let's just say not surprised the park and people really don't seem to follow guidelines, but as you point out one can still do so on their own. The impact is lessened when others don't, but tis a risk you take. I will likely still go. Honestly, glad to hear people were respectful. That's all I ask. You do you, I'll leave ya be but leave me be. Glad that was the case! I always heard of Cornball as an under the radar gem, glad it still holds up! I also hear near universally Lost Coaster is
  13. Well, given it was a July weekend the lines when I went were not nearly as bad as they'd be pre-covid. That said, ops were slower...so that semi negated it. I guess still not bad. Fahrenheit was an hour but in the past it's usually that or longer lol All the rest had pretty short lines tbh just they went slow. Like what would be 5 mins was 20, what would be 20 was an hour. I think when I go for my 2nd day it will also be in Aug. Later ya go crowds are better. All is out the window today but I hope it holds.
  14. Prob but I will be 100% honest, this is the internet, and reading a lot (alot) has been my life in recent years. I just don't bother when I come here to post. Tis my mental check out time. People can be mad lol But thanks. Tis a shame, I was excited to have an RMC so close, even if supposedly it's lost its speed on the last lap. Guess I'll spam Lake Compounce
  15. Yup! FoF at KD I never had any issue with. And going back a while...The Chiller at SFGrAdv was perfectly fine after they removed the OTSR's. But KI? WOWZA. I was totally unprepared, esp given it had lap bars. Was tough to suss out what was worse...it or Vortex (my head hurt so said screw it let's get it out of the way) but honestly FoF was prob worse. How is beyond me! I plead ignorance, I just don't know the details on the how maintenance works for steel rides and why some are worse but yeah it's interesting. Like age is a factor too and some B&Ms are getting rough, but then Kumba...
