  1. I was on the Midwest Tour in 2013. I witnessed some really bad behavior at that time. I do understand and agree with Robb's position on the tours he provides. I, myself, had an incident and am glad that I wasn't tossed off the tour. But everything worked out for the better.


    I hope I am chosen for a position! Growing up a little more can make a difference...more relaxing on attitude!

  2. I really love the Youtube videos and the comment that come with them. An interesting thing about it would be that many of the good followers - great members - actually help to return them to their place, so to speak.


    That post about Millennium Force at Cedar Point was genius. But there were still people asking what park it was 8P


    Still love your "Whee" and "Twisty" and "We're on a lift hill. We're on a lift hill." Too much fun reading the comments on those statements. I should point out that I joined, the first time, after watching Hair Raiser at Ocean Park Hong Kong. This looked like a family I wanted to be with.


    So thanks for the entertainment!

  3. Thank you for the great time. What a ride!


    To the guy that was on Xcelerator during ERT, contact me.


    What guy?


    It seems that "he" doesn't view the forum too much, otherwise he would have

    contacted me already. Ok, this guy was on during the night ERT. Sat right next

    to him, don't remember what he said his name was. You probably wouldn't know either unless you were there at that time. But thanks for posting the question.

  4. I have heard that not many people like GL, is this true? If so, what would the line be like for an unbalanced ride?
    It is extremely polarizing. There is a vocal group that includes me that loves the ride and the more unbalanced the better, but there is an equally vocal group that just can't stand the whole ride and avoids it at all cost. It usually comes down to comfort..some people complain it is extremely painful, others like me don't find it the least bit uncomfortable.


    I imagine the line for GL would be relatively short for ERT because a lot of the TPR group has already ridden it and there's probably more people that would avoid it than love it like me. Perhaps if they were guaranteeing unbalanced rides a few other people might ride than otherwise would, but not significantly I'd guess.


    Great news for me. Ever since the opening day video I have really wanted to ride it. Now with all the others coming out (the 4th dimensional ones) how are they stacking up to this one? Are those uncomfortable as well?


    I didn't follow the hate on SLCs and found out for myself. But you have to ride everything at least once, except I am not a kiddie credit whore.

  5. I'd be interested if they let us take unbalanced rides on Green Lantern.


    Unbalanced rides on ZacSpins are insane. Especially if you get two people on one side and no one on the other! You are in for a very very intense ride cycle if that happens, but I have heard that this is not possible at SFMM.

    Its possible, I've had it happen, but its not likely on this trip since GL isnt on the ERT menu this time around.


    I have heard that not many people like GL, is this true? If so, what would the line be like for an unbalanced ride?

  6. Yep -- there'll be a few of us going solo on this trip so no worries, we'll be the group of orphans. And as long as there's a place to grab a few beers during the day we'll be all set!


    I am there with you! Loners Unite! Still looking for someone to share a ride with on Saturday morning. Staying at Knott's hotel so maybe I can find someone...hope.

  7. If I stay at a hotel near Knotts how would I get to SFMM the next day? Would I or could I beg a ride? Or is there a hotel somewhere near both that wouldn't cost much? Help me since I don't know anything about the L.A. area.


    So you are looking a one hotel that is near two parks located 63 miles away from each other?????


    Thanks for being so concise. I know they are very far from each other, but how was I supposed to get information when no one was answering questions. A stupid question get the best response. Sorry to make your day Larrygator!

  8. Ok, I now have the money for everything. Just have to wait until "I" am able to buy tickets. I hope there is at least one left when the general opens. I will probably renew my membership at the same time...but not expect to get any special rate thereafter.


    Once I am onboard, a few questions I will need answers to, but will wait.

  9. ^^Guy, it's in Phoenix on the West side by the 303 loop. The Sonoran Desert Museum is still in Tucson and not as awesome as this park.


    Jimmy "We still have Old Tucson Studios in Tucson though!" Bo


    The Desert Museum is just that. If it had a ride it might destroy what the purpose is supposed to be. Does Old Tucson still have the Merry Go Round and Ferris Wheel? The last time I was there was before the fire.
