  1. Forget about the spelling and punctuation, exactly how would Cedar Fair buying Gerstlauer trains for Steel Vengeance even be a burn to Six Flags? If, as you claim, Six Flags has the most comfortable RMC trains, how would CF then buying a set be a burn to SF? A light ribbing? What?
  2. Awful. What's especially wild to me is that during all that time that no one else riding with her noticed either. its clearly operator error, but her parent/guardian/whoever was sitting next to her didn't notice either?
  3. The majority of the comments are regarding diaper bags or complaints that people have young children and thus need to have bags. It's wild.
  4. The comments on the Facebook post about that, good lord.
  5. Forum member ElToroRyan has an excellent and super interesting (read: nerdy) video about Knoebels amazing operations on their two big woodies.
  6. I didn't pay any attention to the Racer project but can someone explain what makes Gravity Groups prefab wooden track different/innovative compared to the Prefab wooden track Intamin innovated two decades ago? (also, screw the GTA, their picks for top coasters is mostly laughable, as always. Candymonium in the top 5? GTFOH. And MF... still? The Beast over every RMC? lmfao)
  7. So two things... 1. At least two of you have now mentioned having pain/cramping on just one leg, not both. I dunno, I don't see how that could be an issue with the restraint, sounds like a personal problem. 2. Do y'all ever stretch before a park day? If you don't, some advice: you should. Like as if you were going to work out. I'd legit always done this early in the morning before walking a shi*ton and getting thrown the eff around on a bunch of crazy rides.
  8. For what its worth, I have ridden JDC exactly once and was with two friends who both complained about the seats/restraints being awkward/uncomfortable, while I had no issues whatsoever. Its worth noting am the largest of the three, both in height/weight so I'm not sure if that factors into the issue at all.
  9. https://www.nj.com/news/2021/09/woman-injured-on-tube-slide-at-six-flags-hurricane-harbor-water-park.html Woman injured on tube slide at Six Flags’ Hurricane Harbor water park A patron of the Hurricane Harbor water park that’s part of the Six Flags Great Adventure complex in Jackson was injured on a water slide Monday afternoon thanks to another rider’s mischief, a park spokesperson said. The patron, described only as “an adult guest,” complained of pain following a ride on one of the park’s tube slides, when “the guest’s tube overturned as a result of another guest jumping out of the tube, which is a violation of the park’s safety policies,” Kristin Fitzgerald, a spokesperson for the park, said in an email. Fitzgerald said the injured patron was taken to a local hospital by the park’s own ambulance service, though police assigned to the park responded to the incident. Capt. Steve Laskiewicz, a Jackson Police spokesman, said the department was not involved. Fitzgerald declined to offer additional details of the patron’s injury or condition, citing confidentiality rules under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA. “The safety of our guests and team members is our top priority,” Fitzgerald said in the email. The Asbury Park Press reported that the woman had been on the 75-foot-high Tornado slide. The Tornado sends patrons down a long tunnel at about 25 miles an hour, before they enter into a broad funnel. The Great Adventure theme park adjacent to Hurricane Harbor has been beset by more than a dozen incidents this summer, some of them involving in injuries, while a partial derailment of a car on El Toro shut down the steep wooden roller coaster on June 29.
  10. Fun fact: The highest ridership the park ever achieved with Ka was during the the 2013 season with only one station and three trains. El Toro Ryan (who worked the ride) talks about it extensively in his excellent Problematic Coaster video about Ka. I recommend checking out the entire video (and all his other vids) but skip to around 17:40 for the goods about the station/capacity.
  11. Runaway Tram on Saturday night in the rain with my (8 yr old) nephew. It's his favorite ride at the moment.
  12. Don't quote me on this, but I have heard from a very reliable source who works at the park that it *should* be open within the next two weeks.
  13. Word is a guest was trying to climb onto the roof of the Zumanjaro station to retrieve a lost loose article (I don't know how its possible that no one noticed her) and she fell off, injuring herself. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
  14. Nah, this is not at all one-sided. They've been trading barbs for a while now and I'm absolutely here for it. https://brobible.com/culture/article/universal-orlando-seaworld-twitter-feud-fireball/ https://attractionsmagazine.com/seaworld-vs-halloween-horror-nights-theme-park-accounts-trade-snarky-tweets/ https://www.coaster101.com/2021/07/09/changing-tides-inside-seaworlds-social-media-with-josh-greenberg-director-of-social-media-digital-consumer-engagement/
  15. No update on the guests condition but some more detailed info about what caused the incident. https://fox8.com/news/watch-live-officials-give-update-after-woman-hurt-by-flying-metal-at-cedar-point/
