  1. Unfortunate news with El Toro, esp that I finally am not just back in NJ but working. Really pains me to go here without Toro but I assume it'll be down for a while, understandably so, prob gunna just bite the bullet and go sometime. What can ya do? Also are there really attempts to say it didn't derail? Yo, the wheels went off the track, it derailed lol I get why Six Flags will try to say not but c'mon man. Not good, just glad no one was hurt.
  2. Landed a job! It's not my career...but for the time being, it pays the bills and it's really not too bad. Solid pay, good benefits, close commute, not too stressful etc Speaking of benefits....I wasn't sure how this year would shape off so that's why I did 6 parks in 3 weeks lol BUT I now will have 10 days paid vaca I NEED to use by year's end. So yes, more coaster trips will happen! Thinking I can redo my Texas trip that got Covid-ed and idk maybe one to California, or perhaps Orlando to catch Velocicoaster.
  3. Agreed and that is a sensible, logical thing to say but ya know, enthusiasts get a little....tooo enthusiastic sometimes lol At Dollywood I found one guy who was saying LRod is "OK" basically because it wasn't Steel Vengeance lol But yeah I'm stoked. Also we can pile onto the meme of "Opened before Iron Gwazi" XD
  4. One, superb photos! Two, glad to hear it's living up to the hype. Yeah we sure have become spoiled, "lesser RMCs" or "not as good as other raptors" still better than 80% of rides lol Thanks for the tips, depending on plans I will be going either tomm or Friday (finally) to ride this beast, and El Toro
  5. BTW...has I305 reopened yet? Looks like I'm about to land a job soon so would love to swing by here later in the year once it is (hoping Pantheon opens but not banking on it lol )
  6. Agreed, on June 4 I didn't think the situation was nearly as bad as some were explaining here, which I am not doubting just as you said I think they tried to be better. FL+ was certainly helpful for SV, not as much as years past but deff a lot better than standard line. There was still some weirdness depending on the person on moving one line more than the other, like at one point FL line was basically stalled and the normal went for a long while. Some dude yelled out about it and I felt kinda bad BUT....the op did start alternating lines afterwards and it was a lot better lol I am indeed willing to say that (broken record) things still arent totally normal and SV always has given problems. They're dealing w it, I had no complaints really when I went. Agree w Zand seems they learned. Sucks for those who got screwed by the random change but least they've gone back.
  7. Yeah Nitro, last I rode, was starting to become temperamental. Some phenomenal rides some eh, but I hear this happens with B&M hypers, and I had very inconsistent experiences w Diamondback. Glad was running well, was always a fav of mine. When the air is good its just superb, the layout and that helix (had a friend that would always near pass out) what a ride. Sorry it wasn't the best of days for ya. Hoping weather holds for Tues.
  8. Also it was just bad luck but when I went to KI All 3 B&Ms were done at various points, one for an hour, and one multiple times (at least 3) for the day. Happens but yeah for B&M bit of a rough stretch of bad luck! Oh and forgot to say, while IDK if I could see it a giga at Dollywood would be epic!
  9. Yeah it really speaks about the quality of the lineup when a ride like this is NOT the automatic best in park and people can be let down it isn't "more". I piss on this park a lot, and I will never stop lol, BUT it does have some great rides. Also speaking of being spoiled it is kinda funny how quickly we went from OMG WOW about RMC to now we can gripe that one is less great than others/gotten spoiled that not EVERY RMC is a contender for best coaster lol But yeah I'm stoked and yeah kudos/sorry to yall that have no choice but to do a weekend LOL not a chance in hell, least not till later in the season. I'm glad the week is currently free to me. Watching the weather tomm may be too much of a washout, maybe tuesday. EDIT: @Zand damn! Sorry man That is brutal. Sucks hat happened and yeah it's just shit luck and can't be helped but oof terrible public opening day for sure. Hope ya can enjoy the rest of the rides, maybe next time but man that does hurt sorry
  10. I hope! Single rider lines are such a huge break, why don't more places/rides do it? But yeah esp hope so with a 12 person train.
  11. Makes sense, w/ very rare exception have I ever seen anyone be denied if they asked. Yeah I hear crowds are brutal as would be expected on a weekend here w a new ride. Deff going this week, will keep an eye on the weather and try to aim for a day that may be cloudy/rainy but not toooo bad. Hope it keeps some more crowds away. Looks like Mon or Tues are candidates!
  12. Quite true, oof music is especially bad. And yeah same I like to take jabs but there are a few enthusiasts who's opinions I value mostly bc I think they're fair, well thought out, and in general...seem to align near mine over time so I've come to trust them. One of those have indeed said Jersey Devil is great, but not quite the same OMG WTF intensity and force of railblazer/wonder woman but they of course loved it. Which I think is fair, it's larger and less compact and visually doesn't whip around as much so that all seems sensible. And with RMC's it's like comparing gold to more gold anyway, more is nice but **** you still got gold. Still excited to ride it and stoked Great Adventure finally has a new + unique ride, and that an RMC is near me. I'll prob get a season pass bc of it. So mission accomplished SFGadv!
  13. Was gunna suggest Ybor City myself. Good drinks and food! Generally cool place.
  14. Yes! Can't wait to go! Love Hershey but can't go here w/o Storm Runner.
