  1. I have ridden Iron Gwazi on 11 separate days since pass previews started and this past Wednesday was the first time I saw any wasps at the top of the lift. I hope they can find a way to deal with it. The coaster has been having enough down time already without the wasps.
  2. With Spring Break over for most (or all?) of the US, I was interested to see how Iron Gwazi's wait times were going to be considering the wait times haven't been too bad overall since the ride opened. Before the ride opened to the public, I thought with it being a RMC and a brand new hyped up ride it was still going to have a 45-60 minute wait even on a slower day. I stopped in for 90 minutes yesterday around 2:30 and it was only 1-2 train wait. If that's how it's going to be normally on a weekday when schools are in session, anyone who can visit on those days is going to have a great opportunity to marathon the coaster.
  3. I’m not a fan of Cedar Fair’s polices and operations in general. At the water parks, SEAS generally uses a red light, green light system and the lines move fast. At Dorney, the platform is chained off and only 1 group can slide at a time. If there are 4 slides and all 4 want the same slide, they typically let them all slide which takes a few minutes while the other 3 slides are empty. Their height restrictions both for minimum and maximum are bad too. When they bought Carowjnds the mine train went from 36” to 48”. Years ago at Dorney, 2 family members wanted to go on rides at Camp Snoopy. Both were barely over 54” tall at the time. They had to ride in separate rows on some rides because only 1 person over 54” per row despite the 1 of the exact same ride at Great Adventure, Morey’s, Gillian’s and Dutch Wonderland not having that policy. There is also the no re-ride policy at many (most?) CF parks even sometimes during enthusiast events.
  4. One thing I keep seeing online is that Cedar Fair treats their pass holders better than SEAS. I have only had my SEAS Platinum Pass for 10 months but I have been very impressed with their pass program. For around $100 more than a CF Platinum Pass I get 6 free guest tickets, plus all the extra bring a friend free tickets in addition to those 6 tickets. For both December and January, there were rewards of an extra ticket for BGT and for SWO each month so that's 4 more tickets. There was 1 for Aquatica for either November or December and 1 for Busch Gardens in August, Sea World in September. In total I have brought family members with me using 10 free tickets and I still have 1 of my 6 free tickets left. Then there are all the giveaways, A free food item at Bier Fest at BGT in the fall, free ornaments in December, magnets in January, $10 Busch Bucks and Sea World Bucks every few months. There is 50% off almost all merchandise and the free single rider Quick Queue per visit.
  5. that is a downside of their parks. I miss the all season dining from Six Flags and Cedar Fair at BGT and SWO
  6. If anyone is planning on going today, it looks like the weather has caused almost everything to close. The only coasters that are open are Sheikra and Kumba. Edit, looks like more rides are opening now.
  7. From their accessibility guide: "Guests must be 40" tall to ride alone OR 36" tall AND accompanied by a supervising companion. Guests over 54" tall must be accompanied by a child"
  8. Here are the days and time from yesterday's e-mail: " CAN’T MAKE IT TO THE CELEBRATION? JOIN US FOR PASS MEMBER PREVIEWS! Even if you can’t make it for Passport to Thrills, you can still ride the all-new Ice Breaker early! Pass Member previews will be available from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. on select dates based on your tier: Jan. 30 – 31: Platinum Pass Members Feb. 1 – 6: Platinum and Gold Pass Members Feb. 7 – 13*: Platinum, Gold, and Silver Pass Members Feb. 14 – 15: All Pass Members plus Fun Card holders *Note: Ice Breaker preview times on Feb. 12 will be 12 p.m. - 3 p.m."
  9. It closed when the parks shutdown for Covid and never reopened.
  10. If anyone is going to the Ice Breaker Passport to Thrills event on Friday - Sunday, they changed the event time from 5 to 10, now it’s 3-8. Platinum pass previews on Sunday are now 12-3 instead of 12-4.
  11. Thankfully it looks like no one was on the ride when it happened. Being stuck in the rain and cooler weather for probably 2 hours at the minimum would have been miserable.
  12. Yes, I was there Tuesday and Friday and saw them painting Montu on both days.
  13. New signs with the opening are posted. The train is also in the station (maybe it's been there but I never noticed it before).
  14. Sheikra at BGT today. It was a little strange to be riding a coaster in late January and not being on vacation.
  15. Montu reopens the 18th or 19th. Sheikra is also closed the entire month of February. Kumba’s belts are shorter than Montu and Sheikra. Cheetah Hunt also has shorter belts than other rides with the same restraints like Kingda Ka.
  16. Yeah passes used to be a lot more expensive. I remember getting my first Great Adventure pass in 2008 and paying $120 ($60 for the pass and $60 for a parking pass) and that didn’t include Hurricane Harbor compared to my 2020/2021 pass that was $70 with parking and the water park included.
  17. Remy's Ratatouille Adventure is switching from a virtual queue to a standby line https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2022/01/scurry-into-standby-at-remys-ratatouille-adventure-at-epcot/ I'm glad to see the virtual queue is gone. I did not like waking up at 6:45 am with the chance of getting early boarding group when I wasn't going to Epcot until later in the day.
  18. Arcades, especially the ones at Hersheypark. Up until the end of 2019, they had the ticket payouts a lot higher than other arcades and it was possible to win tickets for prizes for less than their retail cost. I also liked that they had prizes that were once sold as souvenirs in their shops like glasses with the Hersheypark logo on them as well as MLB, NBA, NHL and NFL themed items. Their video arcade game selection was also great with a lot of older games you don't see to much anymore.
  19. I'm looking forward to Typhoon Lagoon reopening since I haven't been there in 5 years. I was thinking they were possibly going to keep both water parks closed all winter with how low crowds have been at Blizzard Beach. Even with it around 80 degrees yesterday and the resort so crowded, Blizzard Beach was empty. The longest wait was 10 minutes for Downhill Double Dipper.
  20. Magic Kingdom EPCOT Hollywood Studios Animal Kingdom Sea World Orlando Busch Gardens Tampa Fun Spot Orlando and Kissimmee I don’t have any trips planned since these are all now local parks but probably will go to they Disney parks around once a week when my pass isn’t blocked out, Sea World around once a month, the Fun Spot parks once every few weeks and Busch Gardens around 3 times a month.
  21. I was there earlier this year when it did sell out (a Sunday during the summer) and seen reports on other busy days like Spring Break when it sells out as well.
  22. I'm looking forward to it reopening (and hoping they allow single riders). It takes so much time to walk from Cheetah Hunt/Montu to Sheikra.
  23. Harry Potter and The Escape from Gringotts currently has a 285 minute posted wait. Seeing wait times like that makes me appreciate Sea World’s waits yesterday where Mako was 10 minutes in the middle of the day.
