  1. Hi all. I know nobody has a crystal ball but hoping some locals can help me out here... My friend and I will be at the park on the last weekend of September for a couple hours on friday, all day Saturday, and a couple hours on Sunday. I'm hoping that since it's still September, the crowds shouldn't be horrid... is there any reason to have faith in that or should I expect 2 hour waits everywhere? Flash Pass isnt really in the budget, at best we could get like the lowest level. (does that include Maxxforce?)


    I've been to the park many times but my friend has never been so the goal is to get at least one ride on all coasters plus a couple rerides on Goliath, Maxxforce, and Raging Bull.


    Also, is there single rider lines on anything? I seem to remember one on Goliath?


    Thanks in advance for any and all help!

  2. My friends and I go to the park 2-3 times a week and really think the jump in crowds is because of the gold pass. $99 for the rest of this season plus all of next season? That's a steal. Plenty of people who buy tickets and visit say, once in the summer and once in the fall will grab that pass and start going 3 or 4 times a year. And they are selling those things like mad. I see a ton of people carrying them around already and the ads for the gold pass are on the same level as twix ads in Six Flags parks.


    Definitely great business for the park. Sucks for the regulars who don't usually deal with the crowds but if all the extra attendance is gonna pay for more and more new coasters I am all for it.

  3. Stopped at Kennywood on my way back home to Cleveland after my big East coast trip. I'll get around to a trip report eventually but just wanted to say that Steel Curtain is great! It isn't as thrilling as one would expect by looking at it but it is very smooth, has great flow, and keeps it's speed nicely throughout. Just a great fun ride that's easy to just throw your hands up and enjoy.


    It is the perfect compliment to Phantom. Phantom packs the aggressive punch, while Steel Curtain is big and intimidating looking which will always make it be a draw to GP and enthusiasts alike. Kennywood has a true winner on their hands.

  4. Awesome! Make sure that's the place. There are other pierogi places but you don't want those.


    PS: I highly recommend the sugar or snickerdoodle cookies from the place near Impulse that looks like a huge loaf of bread if you're in the area and want some desert or just an unhealthy snack.


    I matched the view up with your picture so I think I'm good.

    Oh goodness that sounds amazing. I'm gonna spend just as much time eating as I will riding while I'm here

  5. I've said it a few times but I'll say it again. It doesn't make sense for the park from a marketing standpoint to put in a new "big" ride for the 150th. If they put in a "big" ride during the 150th they essentially lose a year of easy marketing. Waiting till 2021 for a big ride means marketing in 2020 for the 150th and 2021 for the ride while putting in a big ride next year means they are marketing both in one year and don't have anything for 2021.


    *Edit: This goes for any park with a major anniversary.

  6. Hey guys does anyone know what’s going on with the blue side on Gemini? It looks like it’s been testing all day yesterday and today.


    It's had a lot of downtime because of mechanical issues. It was down for about a week, reopened for a few days and then went down again. Must've fixed whatever was wrong and now they're testing the crap out of it before reopening.
