    Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!
  1. Get a cheesesteak at Johns Roast Pork. In all seriousness, Rayj, you'll have to provide more detail as to what you like / don't like and what your musts are. Without that, some standards: - Get Flash Pass - El Toro in the morning (same goes with Kingda Ka if it's running) - Safari right after riding El Toro - If you're interested in Green Lantern, just punch yourself in the head a few times and walk away. Same experience without wasting time in line. - Earn the "Coasterbill Trifecta" Badge by riding Sky Ride, Log Flume, and Skull Mountain (but only in the back row
  2. I’m going to great adventure in late July during a weekend. Any tips?
  3. I hope it’s a giant discovery with a Gotham city retheme to DC universe.
  4. Batwing has only operated the first 2 weeks in April and has been closed ever since. Anyone have an update? Could Batwing become Firehawk next season?
  5. Firebird testing. Still no paint. Most likely opening Memorial Day weekend.
  6. I’m planning a trip to spend two days at two Disney parks and one day at universal studios & island of adventure. I am definitely going to magic kingdom, but I need advice for the second park. I want to go Hollywood studios for tower of terror and rock n’ rollercoaster. But animal kingdom seems like the better park. In addition, I will have a toddler with me. Any suggestions?

  8. This is sad to hear. I hope they at least keep the volcano structure and build a ride through/around it to pay homage to this iconic coaster.
  9. I'm not sure how familiar you are with the park's history, but for year's SFA had the Typhoon Sea Coaster -- in fact it was built by Adventure World before SF purchased the park. It was later renamed to Skull Mountain. It was basically an Intamin log flume that had turntables that would turn the boat around, and you could experience going forwards and backwards. Believe it or not, the ride had immersive theming too. The tunnels had animatronics and props, and on the outside, they set up entrances to fake shops and warehouses as eye candy to look at when you were floating around. You would
  10. I wish SFA would’ve stuck with the skull island theme in the Chesapeake area in the park. Could’ve gave apocalypse a pirate theme or something correlating.
  11. They have to bring back the fire effect for Firebird. I’ll be disappointed if they don’t but not surprised. Maybe SFA should’ve invested in the trains with the vest restraints because there will probably still be headbanging after the corkscrew. I wish someone would have asked if they ever considered getting new trains for minderaser.
  12. I didn’t expect any theming from Firebird, but hopefully the fire effect actually works. I predict that lines for this will be similar to the Gotham city coasters. Most people didn’t like the standing aspect of apocalypse, so I think more people will ride this.
  13. The volume last year was too low, so I’m glad they turned it up. However, the awakening doesn’t have the same atmosphere or feeling anymore since it moved to the arena. The storyline was much better when it was at celebration stage and when it included Eleanor. I agree about the costumes. The budget for the costumes seems very cheap, almost makes the actors not scary. I asked someone at guest relations why it was such an increase in the haunted house pass this year and they said it’s because of the new maze “total damnation”, but the maze was lackluster and short.
  14. I went this Sunday and it was packed because it was the last bring a friend for free day. I stayed for about 6 hours and only did superman, jinx, roar, and 2 mazes. I haven’t seen the park this crowded in almost 6+ years. Rides: operations were pretty good. The best I’ve seen in a while. Every coaster had about a 30-45 min wait with two trains. Also, batwing, minderaser, and of course, apocalypse were closed. IMO, roar definitely has gotten rougher, but it is still bearable. Awakening: it was so much better when it was at the smaller celebration stage. Now that it’s in Gotham arena, i
