  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.
  12. I think it does vecause I was at the park on friday night and around 9pm got the last ride on KK as it shut down for techincal difficulties. Then when I got off and walked over to Zumanjaro it had just closed down. A few minutes Zumanjaro reopened and I got my first ride on that and KK had just reopened when I got off.
  13. Went to the park today to get my season pass and show my dad around, as it was his first time there. While waiting in the line to add parking onto my pass I noticed El Toro running and then stopping, so when I got my pass finished I walked over to discover it had broken down and with a lot of people in line I headed to Green Lantern. I'm not sure if anyone else was waiting in line around 3PM but at that time only one of the trains was running with riders on it. About 20 minutes later the 2nd train was put back in service with one of its rows blocked off, so the line started moving faster. Maybe like 5 minutes later someone threw up on the ride which knocked that train back out of service for a few runs. I felt that the ride was running pretty smooth unlike last time I was on it 2 years ago. I give huge props to the Six Flags crew, who have to clean that type of stuff up because I'm not sure if I would be able to. Besides all of that it was nice just being able to walk around the park and take in the atmosphere.
  14. El Toro! Planning on getting right to El Toro once the gates open to get a couple of nonstop rides in!
  15. I like to mix sodas together so my last drink was a combination of Sprite, Root Beer, and Orange Fanta
  16. I'm a big Yellowcard fan and I was finally able to see them live on the first night of their Ocean Avenue Acoustic Tour in Philly this past september. It was an amazing show and I left with my voice completely gone. They played all the songs of Ocean Avenue acoustically and then came back and played about another 10 song set that was electric. They are doing a 2nd leg of the tour in January and will be stopping at Starland Ballroom. I already got my tickets and can't wait to see them again. I might be exhausted because I'm at another concert the night before but it will still be amazing.
