  1. I'm taking my one year old to Hershey Park as soon as it opens. If she passes the test, then Disney World
  2. So I was just playing around with my Scrabble set and tried to come up with coaster names, leaving as few letters behind as possible. I was left with 7 letters. Blanks not allowed. Can you beat that?
  3. I have similar feelings for Skyrush. It's such a frustrating ride for me because it could easily be a top 5 ride if it weren't for how uncomfortable the restraints are. During a Hershey visit I would rather marathon Storm Runner or Fahrenheit. The lapbar piece or have you not been on Maverick with the solf shoulder straps? I meant the lap bar on Skyrush was uncomfortable. I never minded Maverick's restraints, although the addition of the soft shoulder straps did make a noticable difference in terms of ride comfort. If Skyrush put in standard 2x2 Intamin trains, it'd be one of my favourites for sure.

  5. My CP favorites along with a frame of reference: 1. Steel Vengeance - - 2. Maverick 3. Dragster - 4. Millennium Force - - - - 5. Valravn - 6. Gatekeeper 7. Magnum XL Anything else is outside my top 50
  6. Just a thought - why shouldn't SeaWorld acquire Marineland, and rebrand it as SeaWorld/Busch Gardens Niagara? Given every factor imaginable, it makes sense. Stranger things have happened in the amusement park industry is all.

  8. 300+ coasters later, and I thought that this was going to be my life from now on. It's not the end. It's only the beginning ♡
  9. Here's what I would do first without a flash pass: 1. Full Throttle 2. X2 3. West Coast Racers 4. Superman
  10. Have the wait times gotten any better this month? We were planning a trip for next January.
  11. In all fairness, the wooden list looks more reasonable than the steel list. If Beast and Goliath were to simply trade spots and some reshuffling, the top 10 wood would actually look not that bad.
  12. The fact that it's not a B&M, or because it cracked the top 50?
  13. My Updated Rankings: 1. Cedar Point 2. Knott's 3. King's Dominion 4. King's Island 5. Carowinds 6. Canada's Wonderland 7. Dorney 8. Valleyfair 9. Michigan's Adventure
