  1. Oh my gosh, I thought this was just me. I definitely have had slow loads on desktop that weren't there before.
  2. I'm pretty sure they allow it, I don't drink but I know it was a big topic of discussion on the parks socials and other forums if they would ban outside beer. From my understanding the only new rule is that you can't bring beer into the biergarten and you can't take beer purchased there out. They have security posted to make sure of this (or at least it was that way in 2019). I sat out last season but from everything I heard nothing changed with those rules.
  3. April shouldn't be very crowded, it's usually still light crowds around that time. May & June was when it would start to get busy because of the extended hours and they would host dance competitions but I would assume they won't host the competitions this year with COVID still around. Crowds will be especially light if there is any prediction of rain, the best is when a fast moving thunderstorm rolls through because it clears the park out and people usually don't come back after so you pretty much have the park to yourselves. I've only been to the park on 1 Sunday and it was the least busy I've ever seen the park (besides rain days) and general consensus has always been that Sundays are the least busy days. So if you can make it on a Sunday that will also work in your favor. Everything should be open by that point except the water park, maybe an upcharge attraction, or maybe a water ride; usually by April everything has been open in the past.
  4. Costco is selling discount tickets for the 2020 season. I think they're $50 or at least close to that price point.
  5. I took this directly from the message Lagoon (Farmington, UT) sent out by email and as social media posts. "To those who have already purchased 2020 season passports and/or season parking, we want you to have confidence in your purchase. We thank all of our season passport holders for their loyalty and support during this time. In response to the uncertainty of this virus, if you do not redeem your season passport by November 2020, with your scannable ticket or coupon the passport and/or season parking will be made valid for the next Lagoon season. However, if you are able to use your passport this summer, we would like to extend to you a special discounted rate to renew to a next season passport on or before December 31, 2020. If you have been putting off purchasing your season passports, now is the time to do so. As long as you purchase your passports before June 30, 2020, you will be included in the special renewal option."
  6. I'd recommend trying Samurai at Lagoon, I was excited to try Sol Spin when I attend WCB and walked away disappointed because it only rotates in one direction. Samurai rotates forwards and backwards and if you get the right arm you get a super wild ride. There have been plenty of moments where I felt like I was going to be flung from my seat.
  7. They have magnets inside the disk behind the seats, they're essentially there as a dampener to ensure that rotation is smooth and doesn't get out of control. I had an opportunity to ride the prototype last week and it was an absolutely fantastic ride. I really hope these get picked up by the parks because this ride was one of the most awesome experiences I've had on a roller coaster.
  8. Dang wish I had caught that one earlier. Oh well... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  9. The process is automated but somewhat curated. For example, we had some testing and adjusting last year because we had certain rides be super-highly ranked but only had one or two people ranking them. That led us to develop the rule that a coaster's yearly ranking is "provisional" (marked with an asterisk instead of a number on the results) when it has less than a certain number of riders. Soaring With Dragon at Wanda Hefei is an example of one of those coasters. Okay very cool,just wanted to say thanks for putting this together. It was a very straightforward & easy to understand method. The only hard part was figuring out what ranking I wanted to give my coasters.
  10. Out of curiosity do you tally the votes manually or is it an automated process?
  11. Seriously nighttime ERT was a practical ghost town. I really wish it was Saturday again. I had an amazing time and all the work that Robb & Co. and Knott's put into the event truly showed. Also shout-out to the employees who despite being up early and up late at night still had a smile. It was one of the best days I've ever had at the park.
  12. You're very welcome! I'm sure you'll be fine with your bag but we've had incidents where all of a sudden, based on a number of random things, we've had to put stuff away. And it's not a huge deal, I just always like to tell people to be prepared just in case. Have a few extra singles or a credit card handy, etc... Sounds good, I never thought about issues like that coming into play.
  13. I spent yesterday at Knott's, and carried a backpack with me. All the coasters have bins off to the side, in which my backpack fit easily. You should have no problem with not getting a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo. Again, since this is my thread and my event, I will tell you that you should always "be prepared" to have to put a bag in a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo JUST IN CASE. People's experiences may vary. One day at Steel Vengeance people were able to bring their phones in line, the next day they were not. Ok, sounds good I'll just come prepared that I'll need to use a locker, and if I end up not needing one I can be pleasantly surprised . Thanks again for the work you've put into this Robb. I'm very excited to be able to attend!
  14. Its hard to believe that this upcoming Saturday is West Coast Bash. I am so excited!!! I do have a question for past attendees that have brought a backpack/camera bag along to past Knott's events. Was it relatively easy to keep your bag with you all day or would you recommend getting a locker? (Edit: I like the autocorrect at the end there)
  15. Sounds a lot like Twisted Colossus, minus the launch. And knowing SFMM, it would never race lol. I'm glad to finally see some teasers up. I think this basically confirms it is a roller coaster. Can't wait for the announcement! Found a video of the T Rex concept shown and IAAPA and it matched what you described. I think it would be really cool if this is what their new roller coaster ends up being. But the 2 is better than 1 has me perplexed as to what they would be making.
  16. Out of curiosity is anyone coming to the Knott's event from the Aliso Viejo area? I'm wondering if I might be able to hitch a ride with someone for the event from start to end. (100% willing to split gas and parking)
  17. Ticket just bought, I'm super excited for my first West Coast Bash! Look forward to meeting people at Knott's on Saturday.
  18. I was under the impression it went the way of the dinosaurs.... "Bye-bye"
  19. Ok thats what I was thinking but wanted to get a second opinion. Thank you!
  20. Question for you Knott's regulars, I'm visiting family in Orange County for the 4th of July, and was thinking of adding a trip to Knott's. But the only days that I can do are the 5th or 6th. I figured with it being summer Friday would be busier so I was curious if it would be better to try for Thursday or Friday? Thanks in advance!
  21. I saw the email and literally wept that I don't live in SoCal anymore. I would have been 100% on top of being an extra. Well here's looking forward to West Coast Bash 2018.
  22. On a lighter note..... Through the shining grace and mercy of the roller coaster gods. I'll be fulfilling my decade old dream of going to Cedar Point. Day of invasion will be May 15th, so my question for you kind people is what is the best plan of attack? I plan on having fast lane plus just because of the ticket I'll be purchasing and to not leave things to chance.
  23. The spinning on Spider seems to be hit and miss, when I was there a month ago the first car I had for the day was spinning non-stop the entire ride. The second one not so much.
  24. I have to agree, Pony Express isn't the fastest or craziest, but it has a fun flow and transition to it. (edit is to isn't)
