  2. Excited to see what they can do with the space back there. Not sad at all to see Firehawk go though, it was the only coaster I wouldn't do. For me it was painful just because of the restraints.
  3. Wow, this looks great. Was already planning my first trip to SFGAm next summer, this is going to make it even better! I really like what SF is adding across the chain this year.
  4. I've been to 40 states but have only ridden coasters in 12. I need to fix that! California - Tatsu Colorado - Twister II Florida - Kumba Georgia - Goliath Indiana - Thunderbird Kentucky - Storm Chaser North Carolina - Fury 325 Ohio - Maverick Pennsylvania - Phoenix South Carolina - Hurricane Tennessee - Mystery Mine Virginia - I305
  5. Wow, not what I expected to see from them but I'm really excited for my former home park! Looks great, and of course, Go Steelers!
  6. Well yeah... because it's open now. Getting it to the point where it can open with 3 trains is probably going to take more than one day of morning testing. Yes, but everytime I went by, it was only 2 train testing. There was a train on the transfer track.
  7. I am here now. Steel Vengeance is only running 2 trains.
  8. We'll see where Steel Vengeance ends up, I hope to get up there this month. 1) Maverick. My favorite overall. 2) Valravn. I love dive machines. This would be way up my overall list if it had the old B&M restraints. 3) Millennium Force. My first big coaster, always love it. 4) Top Thrill Dragster. Dat launch tho.. 5) Magnum Xl-200. 2nd to last seat is where it's at. 6) Raptor. I love B&M inverts and Raptor is still smooth and forceful. 7) Gemini. I fell in love with this ride during the Coasting for Kids event. So smooth, and a ton of fun! 8) Gatekeeper. Just a fun coaster, my 3rd favorite wing coaster (out of 3, Thunderbird, Wild Eagle) 9)Wicked Twister. Twisty! 10) Blue Streak. Definitely rougher as of late, but a classic. 11) Rougarou. So much better than Mantis, but nowhere near as good as Dominator. 12) Iron Dragon. Blah 13) Cedar Creek Mine Ride. More blah 14) Corkscrew. Ouch 15) Woodstock's Express. A nice kiddie coaster!
  9. Sorry to change the subject. Saw some new advertising from Cedar Fair I haven't seen before. Taking the Six Flags Coke can idea. This was in Indianapolis, 4 and a half hours from CP and MA, 2 hours from KI.
  10. Thanks for the coverage Robb! Can't wait to get up there and try this thing out!
  11. [twitter] [/twitter] Awesome, can't wait! edit: oops, thought that would work. Great gif posted by CP on twitter, check it out! Steel Vengence!
  12. Very jealous you got to do that tour. I'd be geeking out the entire time. Thanks for the report!
  13. Tighten the seatbelt as much as you can. You won't slam your thighs into the lap bar as much. I think the ride is great either way, but if you want less "pain", do the seatbelt trick.
  14. 1. What is the best park visit you had in 2017? Cedar Point for 3 days! Only got to 4 parks this year 2. Have you ever traveled to a park with a specific ride in mind only for it to be closed all day? Yes. Went to Dollywood 4 times the year Lightning Rod "opened," it was down all 4 times. 3. GCI or Gravity Group? Pick one. GCI 4. How many different parks did you visit in 2017? 4 5. How many times did you visit your home park in 2017? 1 but I've moved now so I need to figure out a new home park 6. What was the first RMC you rode? Storm Chaser 7. Best view from the top of a lift? Valravn 8. What new-for-2018 roller coaster are you most anticipating? Pick one. Steel Vengence 9. RMC or Intamin? You can only choose one. Intamin 10. What was your favorite new-to-you ride of 2017? Only had one new ride this year, Mystic Timbers. 11. Money is no object. You can travel to any park in the world right now by snapping your fingers. Where are you going? Europa 12. Have you ever made out with someone in a queue line? No, and never will. Keep it at home people. 13. What is the last coaster that changed your top 10? Kumba 14. Disney or Universal? I haven't been to Disney in awhile, but Disney. 15. When is the last time you witnessed someone puke at a park? 2005, it was my brother haha Been lucky to avoid witnessing that for awhile. 16. How many new credits did you pick up in 2017? If you don't count, take your best guess... 1 17. You're at Magic Mountain. You have a one hour ERT session on ONE coaster of your choice. You choose... Twisted Collosus. It wasn't open yet the only time I've been there. 18. Name a coaster or ride that you passionately dislike. Firehawk 19. What is the most amount of money you've spent on a Fast Pass? $80? 20. Skyscreamers or Windseekers? Have yet to be on a Skyscreamer. 21. What is your most recent B&M credit? New credit? Valravn. Most recently ridden? Thunderbird or Diamondback, can't remember when I went to which park. 22. Best adult beverage at a theme park? (under 21: whats your favorite beverage you can only get at a park?) Never really drank at a park. Did a beer at CP but that's about it. 23. Most irritating coaster nickname/abbreviation?

Or White lightning. This is tough. 29. What is the last thing you remember eating in a theme park? BBQ at CP. 30. Your favorite coaster got equipped with on board audio x Spotify.

What is your favorite coaster/ride built before 1970? Thunderbolt, Kennywood. 34. What's worse - splashed by malaria lake flume water or dripped on by chain lift grease? Water. 35. Name an Intamin coaster on your bucketlist! Taron/El Toro 36. You just won a 3 day trip with hotel and airfare included. The catch is you have to choose between Disneyworld or Cedar Point. Which do you choose and why? Disney. I go to CP every year for 3 days. I haven't been to Disney in forever and I want to go back! 37. Floater or Ejector? Depends, I like both. Ejector is more fun though. 38. What was your worst park experience of 2017? Kentucky Kingdom operations still aren't great, but they are getting better. If that's as bad as it gets, I guess I had a decent year! 39. Name your favorite coaster under 41 feet tall. Jack Rabbit, Kennywood. (this was what you were going for right??) 40. End your post with an aerial shot of one of your top 5 coasters.
  15. I don't have any of that on Mac Safari or a pc on Chrome and Firefox. I do have the up arrow and that is it. Sarafi and Firefox allow me to move the coasters, but do not change to the up/down arrow. Also no number on the right. Chrome allows me to drag the name but will not place it in a new position. Could some of these issues be because of personal computer settings/cookies? Not very tech savvy so I'm not sure if that makes sense.
  16. Glad to see a poll come back up! I've missed the Hawker poll. Issues I've faced so far: Does not seem compatible with Chrome (ranking). Works fine with Firefox. Hit save, does not save. Resets to order I started with. Thanks for starting this!
  17. Congratulations! I remember seeing my first TPR video way before I knew what TPR was (you all waiting for TTD, probably before YouTube was a thing) and I've been hooked ever since. Quality of your on ride videos is 2nd to none. Keep the "TWISTY's" and "LOOP-DE-LOOP's" coming! Thank you!
  18. Fantastic! Their food always looks great. I'll be in Hawaii this spring, I may have to add this to the list of places to go to!
  19. Fantastic quality as always! I know Twister isn't loved as much as Phoenix but I enjoyed it just almost as much. 2 world class coasters Knoebel's has, I need to get back soon!
  20. Aw, this is a bummer. One of the few water rides I really enjoyed (I just don't like them much anymore). It definitely was a staple of our Kennywood visits as I was growing up but I look forward to seeing what happens in that spot. It will open up a nice big area back in that corner.
  21. Facebook and Twitter are the 2 I use the most. I do use Instagram and Snapchat as well but I use Facebook and Twitter more often because they are the ones I'm most familiar with. I seem to use each for a different purpose though as well. Facebook is more for keeping in touch with friends, family and the such. Twitter for following sports and band stuff. Instagram for roller coaster pictures, and Snapchat just to see what people are up to that day. I do enjoy seeing TPR on each platform. I like seeing the reposts you all do from different users on Instagram. I have set your posts on Facebook to be some of the first to come up on my feed. I enjoy the videos a lot, but I wish you didn't have to put all the big font on the top and bottom of the videos. I get why you have do it, I just wish people could be patient enough to read a description and watch because they are interested. But that doesn't drive in viewers and followers so I completely understand. Sorry for the long winded response. You all are doing a great job with your media presence.
  22. That's so sad a great ride will be gone. Glad I got to ride it, they were fantastic coasters. B&M inverts tend to be some of my favorite rides especially these older ones that still kick @$$. I enjoyed the Harry Potter lands but I am not a die hard fan, I don't feel the need to see them again really. Personally I had little desire to return even with Dragons, now I really have no desire to return to Universal. The attractions they continue to put in seem boring, because I've already ridden the 3D glasses screen ride that I'll be sprayed with water at some point too many times at that one park. I'll take my money to Disney, Seaworld, FunSpot, and BGT next time I'm in the Orlando area.
