  1. ^sorry to hear that. We'll be thinking of you.
  2. I have enough hearts saved up for 1o spins right now. Does anybody know if I should just take them and sell the items or is anything else coming that I can use the hearts on?
  3. Yes, this is great news! Last time I was there it looked like it could use some refreshing. I had no doubt that Dollywood would take care of it, though.
  4. Well, don't the Arrow suspended coasters have swinging gondolas? But I think it is the first time they have been put on a sitting coaster. Hopefully they are smooth and fun. Yes, you are correct. The Arrow suspended coasters didn't even occur to me. So my question really is whether or not this is the first time a tilting car has been on a sitting coaster.
  5. Yes, it only has one midcourse brake run. I rode it 40+ times for media day when it opened. Once we got stuck on the MCBR. It was really awesome going through that final heartline roll at a super slow speed.
  6. BTW, I hope nobody takes my post above as condescending. I was hoping to strike motivation in people younger than me. If I had started saving 10% a month when I started getting paid to work at 16, I could completely retire in the next 5 years. But no, I wanted 'stuff' and now I'm playing catchup.
  7. ^Yep. I have no doubt they'll come out stronger in the end. While I think we'll still hill a bit more of Blackfish, it is on a downward trend and soon this all should be behind us.
  8. Great update! This reminds me we need to get back to WDW.
  9. I agree with some previous posts - I think something awesome could be done with the Muppets. I don't see that anybody mentioned 24. I would like to see something themed to that. You could certainly tie that into a shooting dark ride.
  10. I've enjoyed all the puns. Unfortunately we didn't know about Push until after our trip so we never got to experience him. Oh well, it sounds like it was a waste of time but I certainly don't want to trash his existence. Seven Dwarfs does look amazing! Since I'm not well traveled, perhaps someone more educated on the matter can answer. Is this the first time tilting train cars has been attempted on a coaster? I'm really looking forward to trying them out.
  11. Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Nope Apparently not. I have always been relatively frugal. We did go on a binge for a few years but curbed that and are back to being smart with how we spend. We pretty much live like this thread describes and it's amazing how much money that can free up. Right now we're focused on getting 100% debt free so no new electronics for us in the near future unless someone breaks something.
  12. Thank you for the report, I really enjoyed reading it. We are big fans of SeaWorld and all that they do for Marine conservation. It is great to have it reinforced with all the information that you gave us from the slides.
  13. ^^^Hilarious! That might be great during October.
  14. I'm no WDW expert since I've only been there once, but this sounds really cool and like it will be great!
  15. Big Dipper at Geauga Lake. It was my first woodie.
  16. ^yeah, I never gave the control panels a second thought until this thread. Now I'm paying closer attention to them.
  17. Win. At least they could have put in a small element or two. When I first saw the picture I thought it was a kiddie train layout and not a coaster.
  18. That's a great find and their marketing is quite interesting. Do you know what year this was from?
  19. My plans continue to change. Right now the only 'certain' parks are: USO/IOA BGW Carowinds I'm quite certain I will end up doing more. However that's where it stands right now. I canceled some other tentative plans to see if I can find a way to make it out to Branson this year.
  20. A good woodie that doesn't beat you to death. Right now I'm dreaming of Phoenix.
  21. MORE SNOW?!?!?!?! ...and ice?!?!?!?! ...looking for a house in Florida.
  22. I've had a lot of luck with the wheel. I got one duplicate item and have now gotten all the items. I guess this makes up for my lack of luck with the Christmas wheel.
  23. ^That's great to hear. I am still hoping to get up there this summer to give them some support.
