  1. I don't think that would make it through security... This made me laugh, thank you.
  2. I would turn off the computer and turn it back on while praying to Matt Ouimet ^
  3. That's literally the point of the thread. Anyway, sorry if you were offended by that I can't help you. I don't mean to hijack your thread so I'll leave it be for now and let everyone go back to complaining about how long it's been since they received their last coaster and how poorly the park is being run.
  4. Yeah, it was rude. You made jabbing comments about his age, and his potential inexperience in the amusement park industry. We know how to have fun and how to lighten up, but when nearly all the regulars in this forum say that your post was over the top; it most likely was. I would understand you thinking its sarcastic if it was one or two jokes, but writing almost 2 paragraphs to poke at another user's posts, expessially a kid's post, is simply rude. Not to mention your post in the " Dumbest things said on tpr" forum displaying the kid's post like it was a trophy deer that you hunted.
  5. Call the park and inform them of this incredible idea. Tell them that you're 13, you have tons of experience with theme park economics and development in Rollercoaster Tycoon (specify that you've played versions 1,2 AND 3 so they know you're serious and not some random guy of the street who's talking out of his a**) and that you're worried about their "un-smartness". I'm sure they'll get back in touch with you immediately to schedule a conference call so they can learn how to save themselves from financial ruin. If I were you I'd call them now and then immediately start working on a PowerPoint. Be sure to include a lot of graphs and charts in the presentation, take screenshots of the graphs in Rollercoaster Tycoon if necessary. It's fine to disagree with someone, but you dont have to be rude about it dude. Don't get me wrong, sarcasm is great! Actually, sarcasm is fantastic. But there is a pretty definite line between being sarcastic and being an A-Hole. Sure, he may not know how to run a corporate business, but it's a lot more disheartening to see you, an adult, picking on a 13 year old kid on a themepark website. Not cool dude.
  6. The only problem with that recreation is that its a wind seeker and not a star flyer in the photo.
  7. ^ There has already been a permit filled for a star flyer ride. I believe if there was anything else left they would have added the permit.
  8. Am I the only one who legitimately enjoys windseekers? Honestly enterprise was a fun ride. Not anything insane but I'll admit going upside down without restraints is pretty crazy. I just hope they replace it with something good
  9. I'm gonna be super vague but heres my predictions: Small flat rides or some sort of water slides. Yep. Edit: Something that made me wonder is how early this announcement is. Usually we have it around the 2nd week of September which makes me wonder why we'll be the one of the first Cedar Fair parks to announce something. Keep in mind we're usually the last; I am in no ways saying we are getting a coaster, I am just wondering what they have up their sleeve.
  10. I forgot to post this earlier but a 30,000 dollar maze permit was filed in shakopee e-permits
  11. Honestly Cedar Fair probably goes to Valleyfair yearly no matter what. On an unrelated employee note; Park Services is being reinstated on Monday as its own branch like back in 2014! (I know you all probably won't care but I used to be park services and will be soon so I'm excited)
  12. You forgot to name drop the park's GM's name. That's very pertinent in making it look like you have insider information Alright, lay off of the dude. The joke is getting stale
  13. I don't believe the GM liking a sign would be a decent enough reason to spend money to put it back in the park. In my opinion, leaving it to rot in the back of the employee area is not a sure sign that it will be returning; if anything it shows it may be too much money to get it properly disposed since it is a neon sign.
  14. If they spent over 10,000 dollars to get the sign taken out and replaced, why would they put in back in the park?
  15. Not to mention how inconsiderate it was when they were tweeting multiple times and emailing all season pass holders a couple weeks in advance to make sure no one was disappointed
  16. We've been using multiple switchbacks at Wild Thing today, it's about a 45 minute wait, running two trains. The school groups should start leaving around 3 pm and by 5 or so it should be a short wait for most rides. Hopefully dispatch times are better today than they were on Sunday. It appeared you guys were training people and that was the issue, but having 2 people check the entire train while 3 people were in the control booth was kind of a bad show - especially when it was obvious the girl in the Planet Snoopy shirt was having issues and trying her best to go fast (but still slower than her counterpart) Gotta train em' somehow.
  17. Honestly I would cry sweet, sweet tears of joy if we got anything remotely related to a bowl slide i.e funnel, boomerango, flying saucer, hybrid funnel since the only bowl related slide in Minnesota is a crusty one in apple valley
  18. ^ Live E tends to be like that earlier in the year, but it really picks up once summer starts. That's at least what I've seen while working, it always seemed like there was something going on
  19. Just read the screamscape post. I have no doubt that it was someone from this thread who contacted them (and I'm pretty sure I know who it is) but witch hunting isn't for tpr so I'll leave it at that. There really isn't any solid evidence in the article listed, aside from the survey markers around pirate ship which isn't even related to the subject at hand. If you guys want a good laugh there a little article about a possible coaster coming to VF in 2017 posted last december on screamscape.
