  1. It truly is a rush and I was planning to get hit by a truck again in the next few yrs whenever I could get back to Japan. I remember very strict rules (arms down, heads back) so I’m shocked if people on the ride weren’t following them during the launch. I definitely miss the OMFG airtime Top Hat.
  2. This is insane. Very interested in the future of the park... I'll never make it to Saudi Arabia, so I'll have to live vicariously through Robb and others here.
  3. ...and if you don't believe bgtlover, I was just there and saw it with my own eyes. Sorry, had no time to take any pictures to share here.
  4. Bummer...I was loving all the Electric Ocean event information and finally have the chance to make it back to SWO after many year, but must go on a weekday when they will not have this awesome after hours event. Sigh...now I can only hang at SeaWorld until they kick me out at 6pm which doesn't seem like enough time for the steep cost to visit since I am not a FL resident or BG passholder.
  5. You could have 1000 Birds on a Stick for the cost of one Fire Farting Skrewt on a Stick
  6. That is extremely disappointing if they just dropped $300 million for this ride. IMO, for 300M, you could have Dueling Dragons with FOUR coasters dueling
  7. Woo! The theming from what has been seen so far doesremind me of my time at DisneySea. Now, I must begin to digest how much more $$$ I will need to save in order to get my family back there...
  8. By 'sweetest' I sure hope they are blowing delicious chocolate smells all over the new coaster...or at least in the queue We would have that extra sense that you see sometimes on indoor attractions...M&M show/attraction, Hershey Chocolate Tour, Soarin, Avatar Flight of Passage, other rides that escape my mind...or the amazing Polynesian Lobby smell.
  9. I love Osaka and the fact you had a few days there plus went to quirky Misaki Park and Adventure World makes it a win-win stop. Gosh I miss my travels all over Japan and the Shinkansen definitely made life MUCH BETTER with travel to and fro. I love how efficient Japan is even with an Earthquake to boot!
  10. ^^ Looty, I managed to get to all three in a day but it wasn't feasible to get all rides in...are you asking how feasible to ride everything? That would be a fun challenge and I would take you up on that if I was back in Japan soon! Japan doesn't want to deal with California and the nonsense that everyone deals with there... Not to mention Japan loves fireworks and many other hobbies that are banned in California. CA is not making people happier, Japan is.
  11. Smooth as butter...for the most part which means it's going to beat Medusa out of the #1 spot woohoo!!!! Hey Robb, Coming up to the MCBR, was there a bit of whiplash sitting in the right seat as you hit that turn hard into the straightaway? Looks like the left seat doesn't jam around as much there. Perhaps that's why Fred (RMC) appears to prefer the left seat. Either way, we can FINALLY have an amazing coaster at CP without all the complaining about GK/Val.
  12. Awesome invite! Now I'll have to find a deck for my mom as she loves to collect all different kinds and it's hard to find one she doesn't have after collecting for years!
  13. While the Skillet(s) are excellent, you cannot miss out on the Cinnamon Bread
  14. Thank you for the great vid, Robb! This makes me want to come back to SDC soon... although logistics will be hard with 5 kids now. I've got the Cinnamon Bread on my mind and Outlaw Run to marathon again. This looks more impressive than Cobra's Curse and I love the multiple launches that keep the ride moving.
  15. Yesssssss. I can't wait!!!!! Woohoo Cedar Point finally has won all of us coaster enthusiasts again POV with Robb will be epic with all the airtime!!!
  16. So far Dubai looks so much better than the last time you guys were there! It's on my list to visit some day...after Japan again. Thanks for letting me live vicariously through you. Can't wait for your next updates and appreciate the Arcade got some love.
  17. Same here and loved all the Beast, Diamondback (without seat belts) and Bat night rides! Looks like I'll have to find a babysitter for my kiddos who aren't tall enough and try to sneak in a bunch of rides or see if I can get multiple days at KI soon.
  18. Thanks again Robb for putting up with all this $h!t. Definitely a funny time reading some of the ridiculousness and continued backlash at your success. I appreciate living vicariously through you since I'm limited in how much I can travel after 5 kids... (but still hope some day to get back to Japan with TPR or on my own adventure) Figured I finally should post with the holidays coming up to boost morale and keep others smiling especially with the year ending and more people will find time to bash you or continue to post random crap thinking you've got time for it. -Hoppy
  19. Thanks for the suggestion...just a tad bit expensive for my budget right now:
  20. Thanks! I did check the suggested ones in their website links and was shocked reading some of the reviews. I think the ones nearby the airport seem to be the best and just noticed that isn't too far of a drive. I think I'm all set thanks to a few replies.
  21. Thanks for the info...yeah I was noticing accommodations seem to be lacking!
  22. I'll be heading back to the Wonderland in a few weeks...figured I'd ask here to see about recommendations for a place to stay nearby. IMO, I'm looking for an affordable place to just crash after a long day as I don't think a 5+ hr drive late night will be a good decision. No need for a fancy place like a 5* resort or Casino, just a nice comfy bed and possibly complementary breakfast would be ideal The last few times we did end up trekking 5+ late night and it was just brutal.
