  1. Screamin Swing also had a lot of maintenance issues and would go down at least once every week even though there was a low rider count.
  2. Decided to drive down yesterday because I was in need of some roller coaster therapy and only got to go to Six Flags once during the summer. I can't stand riding GL with a passion but I figured since no one was there might as well just go for it and immediately regretted it once the headbanging started. However before I rode, I stood in the queue walkway for a solid 10 minutes watching and listening to the train roar by. I was still in shock that it was December and not a chilly fall night. Plus I worked at Dorney all summer, so I wasn't able to hear the B&M roar at all. Then I headed over to the other side of the park to get that valuable Poinsettia Peak credit. Of course when I got to Nitro and walked through the entrance it broke down. So I hopped on Batman and Dark Knight for a few laps and some other flat rides. Sky Screamer was pretty chilly but definitely worth it to get the birds eye view of all the lights. After about a half hour, Nitro reopened and I played musical chairs getting to re-ride 4 times until my fingers were frozen. I wasn't going to spend any money on food but, I decided to try a waffle like everyone has mentioned and it was totally worth it! I timed it out right to watch the Tree Light show which was definitely one of a kind. Overall, it was definitely a great event and pretty cool to see the place all decorated for Christmas. I'd also like to thank the rain earlier in the day for keeping the crowd level at a minimum and helping me get 15 rides in 2 hours. S:UF- 2x GL- 1x Nitro- 5x Skull...Poinsettia Peak- 2x Batman- 3x DK - 2x
  3. I work at Talon and usually after 8pm, we become a walk-on because the rush of people from entering the park has moved onto the different Haunt attractions. The first Saturday of October when we were getting hit by the Nor'easter from Joaquin, it was about 40 degrees the whole night and there was a good number of people who came to Haunt that night.
  4. Dorney Park sells them too. This past month I have only seen a couple of people use them around the park and no one has tried to bring them onto a coaster.
  5. I haven't been keeping up with this thread lately and tried going back a few pages to see if my question was mentioned but didn't see it due to all the talk about the coaster rumors, and etc... How has Nitro's trains been this year? I remember reading last year that one train had a rattle to it and wanted to know if it got solved during the off-season. Luckily last year I always avoided that train but was just curious to know before I head down to the park next week.
  6. As a Devils fan, I am happy that the Rangers didn't make it of course! I say that the Finals will go to game 7 with the Bolts taking home the cup.
  7. This past week I was able to grab Impluse at Knoebels and then Steel Force at Dorney Park.
  8. Riding Apollo's Chariot at BGW this past summer in torrential downpour. The sky was getting darker while I was waiting in line and right when I sat down on the train it started to pour. Of course when we were hitting the final break run it stopped raining outside for the rest of the day.
  9. My freshman fall semester: Monday, Wednesday, Fridays 10:00 - 10:50 Career Paths in Hospitality (Only on Wednesdays) 11:00 - 11:50 Math 12:00 - 12:50 American Civ 2 6:30 - 9:15 Personal Computing (Only on Wednesdays) Tuesday and Thursdays 11:00 - 12:15 Writing 2:00 - 3:15 Into to Hospitality Then each day at various times I will have cross country/track practice that takes up about 2 1/2 hours of my day
  10. I would definitely be interested in joining this Fantasy Hockey league!
  11. How are the crowds usually on a thursday night during the summer? I want to use the bring a friend for free pass but I wouldn't be able to get down there until 6 pm due to my friend's work.
