  1. This is an awesome addition and I was already planning on going to Texas so that I could ride the one there. But this probably wasn't the best idea for this big park. It holds less people then Tempesto and Kingda Ka. The last time I was at Great Adventure Summer 2014 the park was a mad house. There were over hour waits for every coaster and that includes the kid ones like Skull Mountain and the Indoor Batman. Why couldn't they at least buy the 10 Inversion model? Great Adventure loves to take records and there not getting any with this. This just shows how Six Flags likes to be cheap and not care about lines. I still will hopefully be riding it but this was an awful choice for this park.. Another thing, just because they have El Toro doesn't mean that its okay for them to get stupid additions. You can only ride El Toro so many times before you get tired of it. And considering that they got a carnival ride last year I would be complaining also.. At least the Larson Loop by me came with a family ride... (SFOG) Rant done!
  2. Does anyone see a free X going into Great Adventure? Like the one that spins sideways? S&S never sold one and it would be a worlds first.
  3. I went to Kings Dominion July 4th on my summer theme park trip and I never posted my trip report so... Kings Dominion 2015 summer trip So my first theme park of the trip was Kings Dominion. I hadn’t been here since 2013 and when I went I305 was closed. I myself am an Intamin lover and I always make trips just for these Intamin coasters. We went to Kings Dominion on July 4th and it was pretty crowded. There was also a 50% chance of rain which haunted me for about two weeks but it only rained for a little so it wasn’t to be. I also took these pics with an Iphone 5c. Also some of them were taken on snapchat. Kings Dominions front gate always amazes me. It is definitely up there as one of the greatest theme park entrances. After we took a quick photo by the front gate me and my little sister went ahead and got online for Berserker. This is the third Intamin Starship that we have ridden and they are all fun but a little bit painful. After that I got a call from my dad and he said he was by I305 and that there was no line. Me and my sister immediately bolted there and sure enough there was no line! My dad said that my sister should wait on this one after hearing about how intense it was. It was also going to be my 150th coaster. INTIMIDATOR 305 Review!!! So as soon as I got to the I305 area of the park I saw that there was no line so I immediately got on line for it with my dad. I wanted to do the front row for my first ride but the line was a good 15mins and everything else was about a one train wait so we just went ahead and did the last row. The harnesses were super comfy even though they squeeze your head a little when you put it on. We then heard the gentlemen start your engine thing and we speed up that lift hill like no tomorrow. As we reached the top of the lift hill all I could see were the woods straight out and the tiny rebel yell to my right. I threw up my hands and then I was then immediately yanked down the lift hill and was ripped to the right on an amazing grey out inducing turn. Me and my dad started shouting that we greyed out along the first turn. We started going up the ejector airtime hill and we then regained our vision. We then were thrown left and ejected then thrown left again then right then left then another wide right turn. Every fast turn ejected me out of my seat and gave me little time to breath. We then went up another airtime hill with trim braked that provided floater air that was better than most B&M’s. After that we went into another floater air turn that dived to the left. I was already wowed by this point but then we entered another twist and I was once again ejected out of my seat into the shoulder restraint. We then dove into the break run. Me and my dad were both speechless… Oh my… This has to be the best coaster ever created. I knew it was going to be amazing but I wasn’t expected it to be this good. It even took Skyrush out for my number one spot. I recommend everyone who loves riding coasters to go check this out!!! Its amazing!!! (I also ended up riding it about 14x threw out the day because of how good it was) After that I rode Flight of Fear which is always fun. Definitely better than the other version of it at Kings Island which I will talk about later on… Then we went to Volcano and saw that the line was spilling out the entrance…. Nope! We then saw that there was a plinko for Volcano and I always win these. I won the Fury 325 one twice in a row and also won the Maverick one at Cedar Point. So you guessed it, I won! We then went in through the exit and were about to get on. But it broke down… They gave us the exit pass back and I just decided to do the Crypt alone. No one else in my group wanted to ride. It was fun as always and all the affects were working. I hope they don’t get rid of this ride anytime soon. After that Volcano opened back up and me and my sister got on through the regular line because it looked to be a short wait. We waited about 15-20mins and then got on. Volcano was awesome as always but it feels a little too short. I wish Intamin could have added a loop or something more to it. It is still the second best ride in the park… After that we did Anaconda and it was decent. Not to bad... Hopefully they will replace it with something cooler and smoother. I’m not going to go into every little detail because I have already done a trip report for this park and I also have a lot of school work to do. I rode a lot of stuff and definitely made the most out of my day… Here are a few more reviews… Dominator- Still one of the best B&M roller coasters out there. I have been on majority of the floorless roller coasters from B&M and this one awesome. Not as good as Kraken but better the Rougarou! 8/10 Grizzly- It’s like a mini version of the Beast but a lot bumpier and with more air time. Still a cool coaster. 5/10 Volcano- 9/10 Intimidator 305- 10/10 Hurler- This ride sucks so much. The one at Carowinds sucks also. They just shuffle around little hills that have no air time and it has a very basic layout. Can Cedar Fair please knock down both of them and put Intamin Blitz’s in there spots… 2/10 Backlot Stunt Coaster- Cool little launch coaster. It goes fast and has nice transitions. A little bumpy but still very cool! 6/10 Flight Of Fear- 8/10 Ghoster Coaster- Smooth and fun. It even had some ejector air in the last row. 5/10 Anaconda- 5/10 Avalanche- Smooth and fun. It has a bit of an awkward seating arrangement… Lol 6/10 All the other coasters I had ridden on my 2013 visit so I either didn’t care for them or didn’t get to them… Sorry I missed you Rebel Yell… Not missing you Shockwave, you were awful and won’t be missed… Me and Dad riding Intimidator 305! On the way out I said hello to Pat Jones. I meet her the time I came in 2013 and I wrote her a letter before I came to the park so she remembered who I was. I talked to her about roller coasters and I told her how I would love to see another Intamin. She told me that she loves Intamin and that she would definitely buy from them again. But then we talked about other company’s and the Hypersonic XLC which I never got a chance to ride. She also told informed me that “There is definitely room for a B&M here”. She said that they are missing that B&M floaty coaster and that she would love to have one. We’ll just have to wait and see what they receive…

  6. Could anyone else see a premier rides Skyrocket2 or the Justice League dark ride going where Thomas Town is? That would be awesome. Or maybe an RMC Cyclone? I can dream....
  7. Is the new train or the old train being placed on the track. I hope they can make this ride better. When I rode it in 2014 it definitely tried to kill me. And any other signs of Bizzaro becoming Superman again?
  8. This looks fun as hell! Weren't they suppose to get an intamin Zacspin before?
  9. This will be a crazy ride. Why can't the U.S. Buy more Intamin.
  10. Carowinds really needs to fix NightHawk. I don't understand why it's so rough compared to Nightwing and FireHawk, they both ran way better. Has it always been this rough or did that happen this season?
  11. Afterburn Banshee Cheetah Hunt Dare Devil Dive E-? Fahrenheit Goliath-SFOG H-? Invertigo J-? Kingda Ka L-? Manta Ninja O-? Possessed Q-? Revenge of the Mummy Superman Ultamit Flight Top Thrill Dragster U-? V-? Wicked Twister X-? Y-? Zyclone
  12. I'll be at Cedar point tomorrow for the first time in years! I'm really excited!
  13. Where is the best place to find discounted tickets for cedar Point. I'm going this Wednesday and Thursday.
  14. Just got to my hotel after a nice day at Kings Dominion. I rode Intimidator for the first time and it is definitely my all time favorite! I hope to have a full trip report up soon!
  15. I'll be ridding I305 tomorrow for the first time! When I went during summer 2013 it was when it got stuck on the lift hill. I've been looking forward to this coaster for a long time and I've been on all the other major intamins in the U.S. . I wonder if it will take my number 1 spot away from SkyRush.
  16. Mindbender is such an overrated ride. I suggest hitting Dare Devil Dive first thing. Then running Dow to ride Superman, Great American Scream Machine, Ninja(it's honestly not to bad in the magic seat) and Skyscreamer. Then go do Goliath and hit up Gotham rides. After that make your way to Monter Mansion, pass that and do Acraphobia, Dahloga mine train, Cyclone and then jump on Scorcher on your way out. You should be able to conquer most of the major rides in that short time.
  17. How bad are the lines at Kings Dominion on Fourth of July weekend? Like around an hour wait for everything I'm assuming?
  18. Yea, I'm probably not going to add Knobels to the trip. It looks like it's also out of the way and we don't want to add an extra two hours to the trip... Another thing, what are the rain policies at these parks because it looks like it's going to rain at all of the when we go... The rain has definitely got me quiet paranoid...
  19. I've heard good things about Knobels but in all honesty it doesn't look that exciting to me. I love big B&M and Intamin machines and I'm not a huge fan of wooden coasters. Unless there like El Toro or a huge twisty GCI. And don't you have to buy tickets for each individual attraction at that park? Is it like a carnival kinda? No offense but don't know much about it...
  20. ^ I meant that were stoping at the Indians game on the way to Cedar Point from Hershey. We're not going to Cedar Point then to the Indians game and back to Cedar Point.
  21. My dad is all up for it. We normally drive to and from New York once a year. Last year we did 4 Six Flags parks so we're used to all these trips.
  22. Summer planning trip on east coast for July 3-12 Hi, I am trying to plan a summer trip with my mother, sister and father. We are trying to save as much money as possible on the trip. We are doing this all from Florida and we only have 8 days. I was also wandering if any of you guys are aware of any discounts for the parks. I also have a Six Flags season pass. Friday July 3rd- leave from Florida to Kings Dominion, 12 hours. Find hotel. Saturday July 4th- Spend the day at Kings Dominion. Find Hotel Sunday July 5th- Drive 2 hours to SFA and stay till around 6:30. We're going to try and catch a Nationals game at 8:09pm that afternoon and stay at a friends house. Monday July 6th- get up early and drive two and a half hours to Hershey Park. Spend all day ridding Intamins. Stay at hotel that night. Tuesday July 7th- Get up early and drive 6 and a half hours to Cedar Point. We will probably stop in Cleveland and catch an Indians game at 7:10. Then drive to Sandusky after and find a cheap hotel. Wednesday July 8th- Spend the day at Cedar Point. We probably will wanna go back the next day so are there any ways to get a second day cheap? Also a hotel in the area hopefully cheap. Thursday July 9th- Go to Cedar Point again if the price is right and drive maybe an hour out after the park closes towards Cincinnati. We also need to find a cheap hotel that night. Friday July 10th- Finish the drive to Kings Island and stay there all day. We will need to find a hotel that night. Saturday July 11th- Go to the All Star Fan Fest in Cincinnati and leave by 4 to. Drive to Atlanta. Spending the night at a friends. Sunday July 12th- Drive from Atlanta back home. It's about a Six Hour Drive. Please tell me if fastpass is needed at any parks to ride all the coasters. Also let me know about any cheap hotel discounts and park discounts. All help is welcome. Other Info- - I have been to all these parks except for Kings Island. - When I went to Kings Dominion in 2013 I305 was stuck on the lift hill and I couldn't ride it. I have watched the pov for it everyday and I need to ride it!!! - At Hershey I need to ride Skyrush as much as possible and get a few re-rides on Storm Runner and Fahrenheit. Also a few runs on Lightning Racer. When I went the Wild Mouse was closed. The last time I went to Hershey was 2013. - Six Flags America is an okay park. I need to go back to get the Ragin Cajun credit and ride the Jokers Jinx which was closed the last time. I went here last year for the first time. - I've been to Cedar Point before back when Gatekeeper opened and it was extremely crowded. I wanna go back and ride the Intamins. Also will it be crowded when I go? - I've never been to Kings Island and don't know much about it. What order should I hit the park and will it be crowded when I go? -Im at 149 coaster credits. I want I305 to be my 150th credit. Please give me advice on how to hit each park and also tell me if you think it will be crowded or if I should switch some dates around, thanks. If there are any parks I should try and add in or switch around feel free to let me know. I go to New York a lot and I have done a lot of parks in the area. I've also already been to... -SFNE -Dorney -SFGAdventure -Luna park -SFOG - Wild Adventures - Carowinds
  23. I was wondering if anyone happens to know if there is a dog kennel at Kings Island? I know Cedar Point and Kings Dominion have one but from the website it seems this park doesn't have one. If there is not one at the park is there a cheap one in the area?
  24. Is anyone a wear of any other Togo paratrooper ride? Like possibly in the U.S. ? It looks amazing!
