  1. People on Darien Lake’s FB page be like, “$54.99 for a season pass? You should have a family season pass deal, you just keep pricing everyone out. My family can no longer afford to visit, and $1.50 refills with my free cup that’s just outrageous”.

     

    Meanwhile I just dropped $1300 on 5 day park hoppers for Disney. And I know it’s a horse of a different color and that I’m fortunate to be able to do so for my family but the people come out in droves to chastise this park on value. At even $65.99 Darien Lake is a great value for a seasons worth of entertainment. With It’s shortcomings and all.

  2. I had a morning obligation so got to the park around noon. Had to pay for parking and have it reimbursed because I wanted to buy the pass there. I was greeted with that line...75-100 people deep. With young kids in the car and work in a few hours I couldn't wait in that line. Off to guest services where I had to wait 20 minutes (with only 4 people ahead of me) to buy my pass and get reimbursed. What a waste of gas and effort. My transaction took about 3 minutes. What do people need at guest services that it takes 10-15 minutes? Sheesh. The nice girl at the window did say though that they may be extending the extra friend pass benefits to next weekend but don't hold her to it.

     

    My fault for sticking a round peg in a square hole. You win some and you lose some.

  3. I would like to say that Hooks Lagoon is in total disrepair. I remember it in its glory when I was a child. I can't believe it is even still open. Countless water features not working, bucket gone, slide gone and space boarded over, faux palms falling apart, exposed cables that should be wrapped with rope, etc.

     

    The water park additions have all been really nice, and the popularity is there. They need to replace this with a new water play area. I actually think they should do that before building a new coaster.

  4. Condolences to the family, so terrible. Is a slide like this even necessary?

     

    What is the airtime like on this? Highly variable based on weight? 400-550 is a good range. Can you hold on alone or do your hands get ripped from the handles and the restraint end up doing a good bit of work?

     

    Lastly, what is that netting made of? I guess at those speeds brushing any material could cause injury, but a decapitation I don't even want to imagine happening.

  5. Went on ROS yesterday. It was a one to two train wait. I was probably the 5th cart from the back second row. Being right at the height max (which is dumb) my one knee pretty much touches the bulky black plastic, and the train rattled to all hell. Knee took some pretty good vibrations but it was manageable. Will have to ride in the front of each cart for now on. Got some good airtime.

    Not one to complain about a steel coaster being rough but with a new train I'm surprised at how much it rattled. You can hear the vibrations the entire time. Maybe they need to change out the wheels to a different material. There are different running wheels correct?
