  1. ]It's because it's technically beyond straight down for part of the first drop. Difficult to explain but there's a few feet of track that are inward from 90 degrees. Kind of a silly claim but it is what it is.
  2. I'll believe it when I see it but lost island Waterpark near waterloo, IA has announced a 200 acre Theme Park opening in 2022. Lost Island Theme Park
  3. Great report...I'm an hour and a half away and I'm guilty of not visiting here enough. Like you I have the SF Membership and go to SFGAm a few times a year and Cedar Point a couple times a year. Granted they are two different animals but SF is really starting to irritate me with poor operations and service. Your report has inspired me to hit adventureland a couple times before the season is over I'll choose quality over quantity of rides.
  4. Hopefully this helps....Last time I was at Union Station there wasn't much in there. I think I Pricelined a room at the Hotel for like $50.
  5. Mabel's downtown has Cleveland Style BBQ. The sauce is mustard based.
  6. Agreed, Famous Daves is OK if there aren't other choices. I'm not crazy about "Cleveland style" BBQ which I tried in Cleveland on one of my visits. I actually thought the brisket at BackBeatQ was better than FD. I'm within four hours of KC and STL as well and I always visit Q39 in KC. Same with Bogarts in STL. Ok...Back to coasters........
  7. Things were a little more normal around the park today. The train was back running (it was down Sunday due to water) and the beach at Breakers was at least partially accessible. Still lots of water around parking lots for some of the employee housing. Valravyn was doing more testing this morning but still not open.
  8. Nothing to do with coasters....Water, water everywhere on the outskirts of the park. Much worse than when I was here last month. Even part of the ADA section of the main lot has some water. Side note....Caught part of a rehearsal for the band that plays for Cedar Point Nights on the stage by Windseeker today. I think they sound even better than last year.
  9. At Cedar Point for Top Thrill Dragster they have a recording the operator triggers that says "arms down" while you're waiting for launch. Some operators keep playing it until everyone puts their arms down, others don't. I haven't seen anyone's arms fly off yet.
  10. Any guesses as to whether they're going to allow the Skip the line passes that some membership levels get on Maxx Force?
  11. A little off the path from the original post but are there still any parks that don't allow single riders in the back row? I used to come across this now and then but can't remember the last time it happened. They always said it was a liability thing.
  12. I'm very often a single rider and not real picky about where I ride. But, I will occasionally request a certain row and with the exception of Valravn I don't think I've ever been refused. More times than not there's another single to pair with anyuway. I drive nine hours to visit CP two or three times a year. Sure I'd always like to sit in my favorite seat on various coasters but I try to be flexible too. I understand the frustration from those that make CP a once or twice in a lifetime trip that don't like being told where to sit but sometimes you still have to bite your tongue and do what you're told. I suppose technically disobeying can fall under the ride instructions section of the Ohio law. I bet if you smile and say please, nine times out of ten you'll get to sit where you want.
