  1. Scored some tickets this morning to go see the Cure at the X in June. So it's been a Cure sort of day.
  2. Valleyfair is not a two-day park. Do one day at VF and one at NU, or one at VF and one exploring the Twin Cities. There's a lot of great stuff around here, depending on what you like.
  3. Just got caught up on this thread. So sorry to hear of Nick's passing. I cannot imagine how much that sucks. Glad you're working through it with a therapist. Paris is a wonderful city, isn't it? You hit all the good stuff! European Knoebels...I had no idea this existed, and I've just added it to the ever growing list of places to go whenever I can get back to Europe. That Charles L******gh Hotel looks absolutely unbelievable. They really went all out on an incredible experience. If only they had chosen ANYONE else to name it after... Sheesh, can't we collectively agree white supremacists are bad? Absolutely every photo of Phantasialand looks like it could be framed. I don't know how they do it, but I'm glad they do! Lots of good stuff here, too much to comment on individually. Glad you had a great trip!
  4. Reviving this 'cause I got myself a new skyline!
  5. https://www.ky3.com/2022/12/19/osha-fines-silver-dollar-city-after-death-maintenance-employee-this-summer/ OSHA fines Silver Dollar City after the death of a maintenance employee this summer BRANSON, Mo. (KY3) - OSHA is fining Silver Dollar City over $14,000 after a maintenance employee died in July. According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s website, the penalty is $14,502 for the incident. In July, an OSHA spokesperson shared with KY3 that the maintenance man was hospitalized on July 20 with head injuries allegedly sustained during maintenance and testing of a rollercoaster and died of his blunt force head trauma injuries on July 21. The man had worked at Silver Dollar City since 2017. Silver Dollar City released a statement to KY3 News: The safety of all Silver Dollar City hosts and guests is a responsibility we take with the utmost seriousness. We have worked with OSHA over the past several months to review the employee accident that took place earlier this year, which included discussions regarding our voluntary revisions to safeguarding measures in restricted areas. OSHA has reviewed and accepted these changes, training for which has been implemented with the appropriate personnel. According to the OSHA inspection process, when OSHA issues a citation to an employer, it also offers the employer an opportunity for an informal conference with the OSHA Area Director to discuss citations, penalties, abatement dates, or any other information pertinent to the inspection. The agency and the employer may work out a settlement agreement to resolve the matter and to eliminate the hazard.
  6. Looks really great! I enjoyed their waterpark when I was there a few years ago. Glad to see them expanding it.
  7. We canceled our Six Flags membership when it became clear than Covid wasn't going to be over soon. We may pick up one of the new annual passes this year, as Great America is our new closest Six Flags, and we really enjoyed that one last time we were in Chicago. $74 may be higher than usual for Six Flags, but it's cheaper than Valleyfair's lowest tier pass, and both parks' middle tier pass is $100. I really don't think this pricing structure is the end of the world.
  8. Oh wow, this was unexpected! Glad you loved Discovery Cove. Journey to Atlantis is something else, isn't it? Man Sea World is fantastic.
  9. Hey man! Yeah, I hear you. These last couple years have been rough on everybody. We need to catch up.
  10. Thanks! Been very busy; pandemic led me to rethinking some priorities. Yeah, you remember correctly though, ZZ was in and among the trees. I was a kid last time I rode it (think I was 11 or so when they removed it) but it was soooo good. Anything that evokes that same feeling is gonna be a hit with WoF's audience.
  11. Man, I loved the original Zambezi Zinger, and this new coaster looks like so much fun! This is exactly what they needed, and we are definitely making plans for Worlds of Fun next year.
