  1. An event like WinterFest is incredibly expensive to pull off. I don’t see a park like Dorney or Valleyfair getting enough ROI to justify spending that kind of money.
  2. This is sure to piss some people off: 1. Steel Vengeance 2. Raging Bull 3. Mamba 4. Magnum XL-200 5. Valravn 6. Diamondback 7. Wild Thing
  3. I completely agree. The park’s collection of coasters is solid, however nothing at that park really blew me away aside from Beast and Mystic Timbers. The rest of their rides are kinda “bleh” to me.
  4. And it would bring them back to three inverts after having lost Stinger. Is there any park with more inverts? Kings Island has 4.
  5. Of the ones I’ve ridden: 1. Steel Vengeance 2. Maverick 3. Rougarou 4. Raptor 5. Top Thrill Dragster 6. Magnum XL-200 7. Valravn 8. Gatekeeper 9. Gemini 10. Wicked Twister 11. Iron Dragon 12. Millennium Force 13. Blue Streak 14. Corkscrew
  6. Looks like in addition to Timber Wolf’s track work and new turn, the ride will also be receiving a pretty sweet lighting package as well. Looks great! Photo credit: Jason Chandley
  7. There have been mumblings, but zero concrete evidence pointing towards a new roller coaster in 2019. I’ll jump on the hype train once we have some land clearing. Now, onto new attractions that have been ACTUALLY confirmed, Timber Wolf is having a season passholder preview event on May 18th, a week before the ride was scheduled to open. I’m glad they’re holding a Hoedown-esque event for the ride, even if it’s not entirely new. And in even better news, there’s new topiaries heading into the park! Credit for the first photo goes to KCTV5 News, and the second was taken by Matthew August Myers for worldsoffun.org.
  8. The last two or three hills we’re definately ejector when I rode it this past weekend. I haven’t ridden tons of coasters, (well over 50, though) but Mamba is definately a favorite of mine.
  9. THIRD ROW FROM THE FRONT THIRD ROW FROM THE FRONT THIRD ROW FROM THE FRONT If you want ejector/strong floater airtime on EVERY SINGLE HILL, third row is undoubtably the best. Mamba is a top 10 ride in the third row.
  10. Of course don’t take my word on this, but I’ve heard all of the improvements we’ve seen this year are preparing the park for their next major ride. Whether that’s true or not, I’m very excited about the direction this park is headed in.
  11. Everything Jayke said is 100% accurate. A lot of the park feels brand new. The new Front Street area looks incredible in person, and the new floral clock is massive and impressive. Nordic Chaser isn’t an “OMG INSANE CRAZY” flat ride, but it’s loads of fun and the theming they’ve put into the ride is much better than I’ve seen at other Cedar Fair parks. The ride even has it’s own soundtrack, which is rare for a flat ride. Also, I think Jayke forgot to mention one of my favorite upgrades for this season, which would be the gigantic wild animal topiaries in Africa. They were around for WinterFest, but I’m glad they kept them for the regular season. They are incredibly beautiful in person. Nearly everyone I saw walk was in awe of the 30 foot tall giraffe next to the bridge near Zulu. Here are some of my photos from Opening Day. Eli’s new paint job (not my best photo).

  12. One of my biggest complaints with RMC’s trains is the fact that there’s nothing to hold on to. I strongly prefer having a handle/grab bar to hold while riding a coaster. In fact, if Outlaw Run had something to grab on it’s trains, it would probably be my #1 coaster. It’s a big deal to me, and I’m glad Cedar Point is addressing my biggest complaint with Rocky Mountain’s rides.
  13. Just for future reference: all Cedar Fair employees sign an agreement saying that they will not publish any pictures or videos from within the park on social media unless given permission to do so. So if it’s not coming from the PR department (or a guest during the regular season), it most likely is violating park policy.
  14. Here are a few updates the park has posted this week. Timber Wolf’s new element has taken shape, and Nordic Chaser has started being assembled. Additionally, I’m hearing there are many smaller improvements happening on Front Street and in Scandainavia, including new pavement and fresh coats of paint.
