  1. Don't worry, the Internet will keep your secret. We promise. Coasterstock does look like a good event. I'm going to have to make it one of these years.
  2. I haven't done it, but it looks really cool. I've just done the cave tour hundreds of times so I don't want to pay the upcharge. It sells out quickly, so when you first get there go immediately to the cave desk in the Hospitality House (you'll literally walk through it between the turnstiles and the square). Trailblazer Pass is generally worth it if the weather is good. Current forecast is for thunderstorms on Sunday but clear on Monday. If that holds, then get TB pass. Around here, though, weather can be quite variable, and I've seen storms get pushed back a day as they develop more slowly than the models would predict. So there's a decent chance that it might rain on Monday instead. Don't pre-purchase, wait and see what the weather does and buy day of if it's sunny.
  3. Giga coaster with two stations, one end in Six Flags and the other in Sea World.
  4. Yeah, I totally get it man. Wish you could visit under better circumstances, but SDC is pretty great even if things aren't ideal. Have fun!
  5. ^ Just bring a mask and you'll be ok. You'll get stares. For sure you'll get stares. Like hostile glares from multiple people. I live around here and I've taken to masking again since the rise of the Delta variant (just when indoors or when there's too many people around in an outdoor area, you know, like the CDC says). Hoo boy the distrust in the eyes of people, the wariness, like they are concerned I'm going to jump them with a knife or something. It's absolutely unreal. That attitude is the cause of why this variant has taken hold in this area. So that's what's happening. I want you to be aware of what you're walking into, but with eyes open you'll be ok. Just take care of yourself, act real friendly and be super polite, and they'll leave you alone. God, this is how I have to talk about my neighbours now. This place has become so hateful in the last decade or so.... Trust me, it hasn't always been like this. People used to be nice here.
  6. Never heard of Cedar Valley, but a jumping log flume sounds great to me!
  7. So glad to hear your opinion of Twister. I think it gets overlooked just because Phoenix is there, but Twister is utterly awesome in its own right. I would accept Legend as a point of comparison, but there's really nothing quite like Twister.
  8. You should expect them to be as "open" as they have been this year.
  9. Yeah, not so much "slow degradation" as "immediate response to a crisis." But I do agree that it's not the same experience as 10 years ago. It's the same experience as 1 year ago. When you figure out why, maybe you'll cut them some slack. These are good people, and I guarantee they want even more badly than you do for service to be back up to their usual standards. Edit: Haha, and while I was typing this out, they're already on it.
  10. Glad you made it on Banshee! I agree, Banshe up front, Bat in the back. Invertigo is okay, better than the standard Boomerangs, but almost never worth the line it has, which gets long with only one train.
  11. "Flip Flap Railway was the name of a looping wooden roller coaster which operated for a number of years at Paul Boyton's Sea Lion Park on Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York. The coaster, which opened in 1895, was the first looping roller coaster to operate in North America." https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flip_Flap_Railway "Victoria (Alexandrina Victoria; 24 May 1819 – 22 January 1901) was Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from 20 June 1837 until her death in 1901. Known as the Victorian era, her reign of 63 years and seven months was longer than any previous British monarch." https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen_Victoria It's bad enough being pedantic. Being pedantic and wrong? Bummer.
  12. Wow, what a rambling series of disconnected thoughts. Paragraph upon paragraph describing Google Earth images. This is not "research." There is nothing firsthand in the entire article. The author read some articles and used some mapping programs and wrote about an Internet search. Nowhere in this entire piece is there any original reporting or any actual journalism. It's sensationalism. Moving on.
  13. Sounds like a great day. I think my son really started to get into coasters around 6 or 7 as well. It's great seeing his face light up when I ask if he wants to go again. Nothing else quite like it. Keep being a great dad!
  14. Awesome news! I love those surf coasters. The Ultra version looks great, should be a real competitor for Mack.
  15. This park does a really good job of maintaining their Paramount era coasters (Flight of Fear & Backlot Stunt Coaster). And I always enjoy people's first time impressions of Adventure Express.... Yeah, that is THE standard enthusiast event lunch, though usually the onions aren't grey.... Like I alluded to before, it's best when CF lets someone else do the cooking, and that's pretty much across the board at their parks. There's a good reason so many of us rave about Chickie's and Pete's, Tom & Chee, Melt, etc. Hell, as crap as Famous Dave's is, it still bests most of the stuff at Cedar Point. But even if CF gets theif food game together (and I really hope they do), that is still gonna be The Enthusiast Lunch.
  16. Yeah, that is much, much better than the Reds place used to be. The bar over by Adventure Express has a really good beer selection, and their pretzels are pretty great.
  17. I've always gotten one of the hotels on Rt 6 right where Cedar Point Dr ends. They've all been fine and under $100--and most importantly, walking distance from Thirsty Pony.
  18. Agreed on the Tom & Chee with balsamic. KI's food has been going up in quality mainly because they're letting other people make it now. The walkbacks look so fun! I always like those, but at KI where they've got a whole park's worth of land in their backstage, so much to see there.
  19. Sometimes, well really most of the time, my humour is too dry for the Internet.
  20. Dorney already looks abandoned on a regular basis, so they don't have to do much for Haunt.
