  1. How long have they been running the current $10 admission special? That's a crazy low price. Anybody been this season?
  2. I too think the chances of this being built as described are slim to none, but I wonder if there's a green card through investment angle to this. Here's an example of what I'm talking about: Lure of Green Cards Brings Big Investments for Remote Resort in Vermont Find enough wealthy people who want permanent residence, and you can raise a pretty large sum of capital from investors who (depending on their wealth) may not even care about getting a return so long as they get their ticket to live in the USA.
  3. I've ridden a Tango (not at Canobie) a couple of times and thought it was a terrible ride. It's got height going for it and it looks great, but I agree, not a good experience for its passengers. Fun to look at, not fun to ride.
  4. Can anyone provide a link to a law or a regulation to back up that this type of restraint is banned in any state? I have a hard time believing it to be true.
  5. I'd expect there to be no deals available for the entirety of the summer, and it would not surprise me to see them increase ticket prices again if this year's additions prove as popular as expected. That said, you may be able to save a bit if you purchase tickets via AAA or Undercover Tourist, or save on other costs like hotel accommodations. I know the Universal on-site hotels often run deals where your per-night rate decreases quite a lot as you book more nights, usually starting with a three-night minimum. Good luck!
  6. More than likely at Chance's manufacturing plant in Kansas. I believe you're right. In fact it appears that Lightning Run photobombed Holiday World's Mayflower: Source: http://www.holidayworld.com/holiblog/2014/03/16/getting-ship-together/
  7. The cliff dives, the mountain-terrain concrete waterslides, the cannonball slides shooting you through the air and into cold spring water, the trapeze that you grab and swing into the cold spring water... All that stuff has been open to the public every summer since 1998 when the place reopened as Mountain Creek. They took out a lot of the more notorious elements when the park reopened, but there's still plenty of stuff there from the original Action Park that makes it one of the most bonkers waterparks around.
  8. Interesting article with a MagicBand teardown (yes, there's a battery inside) as well as a peek under the hood and behind the scenes of the park hardware: Making the Band – MagicBand Teardown and More
  9. Actually, Vekoma track does have one distinctive trait that you can see in the foreground of that photo: the bolts through the running rail at a track joint. There's generally a kind of stairstep design where two sections of track mesh together, secured by a couple of bolts. I don't think I've seen an Arrow ride with that type of design.
  10. Much of the old Action Park is still open as Mountain Creek, and much of it still makes one say "how do they get away with running this?" Cannonball slides, Tarzan swing, cliff jumps, etc., dropping you into freezing cold spring water... still there! Not saying any of it is unsafe, as they have a pretty good track record now as Mountain Creek, but you can ride and do things there that you simply don't see anyplace else. Worth a trip if you like out-of-the-ordinary waterparks.
  11. You can get Scotch eggs at Finnegan's inside Universal Orlando. I thought they were a bit heavy, but they didn't taste bad!
  12. A Huss Jump 2 would nicely fill the "weird-ass ride that never works" role left open when the Quake was removed.
