  1. How tall are you? I'm 6'5" and they put a lot of pressure on my shoulder blades, especially as they tighten over the course of the ride. Also, and this is totally just a personal problem, but I find the thigh/lap portion of the restraint uncomfortable as well. Too many squats lead to big boy thighs being squished.
  2. If you're going alone, bring some earbuds and listen to some podcasts while waiting in line. Hell, if you have big enough (zipper) pockets, bring a small book or kindle to read. I go to my local park to chill all the time.
  3. I was at the Winter Warm Up event and during the construction tour, park president Dale Kaetzel said not to expect any significant changes from the announcement render like extra elements or such. If I'm recalling what he said correctly, the additional length is from more minute layout adjustments by RMC as the project was being fabricated.
  4. Has anyone seen any pictures from the Sandcastles Suite site? Has there been any demolition yet?
  5. Much more likely to pressure wash the structure to strip what remains of the white paint for Twisted Cyclone. Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
  6. Wife and I just got back from the park and all I can say is WOW! Fantastic evening for night rides. Park was an absolute ghost town with absolutely no waits on any rides. Employees were friendly and ops weren't bad. Weather was perfect as well. Could not ask for a better experience. By the way, saw some signs of life on the conversion process for Cyclone. The track was gone from the 2nd turnaround. Looking forward to seeing it transform through to Holiday in the Park. Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
  7. So the park has some odd hours tonight (6-midnight). My wife and I were looking to do some night rides from 8 to close but does anyone know why the park is open to midnight? Should I expect significant crowds?
  8. I am salty that they removed the hot tub adjacent to the swim up bar. I had time alone to kill the day before Coastermania and thought lounging with a drink would be nice but sitting in a very cold pool with a colder beer is worse than marathoning an SLC.
  9. 6/2 is Coastermania!.. I expect it to be packed, but no idea how the "special" stuff for Coastermania! attendees works. . . (do they close off certain rides to the GP for ERT for Coastermania! attendees?) Most of the ERT is before/after operating hours. I think the only exceptions are during Passholder/Resort Guest early entry although even that seems to not be the case this year. You should be fine.
  10. If there is a drop of rain, Superman will be closed for the rest of the day. YOLOcoaster closes during rain but will reopen once the rain stops. Lex Luther Drop of Doom is also currently closed for scheduled maintenance. Other than that, all attractions (outside of Roaring Rapids and Tidal Wave) should be operating. If it's windy, X2 will be closed. Thanks a ton guys. My "bucket list" coasters are Tatsu, X2, and Twisted Colossus so knowing that they have a decent chance of all being open makes me happy. I've done Zumanjaro enough to be A-ok with missing out on Luthor.
  11. The wife and I are making it to the park on Monday, the 26th. Are there any coasters we should expect to be closed? Also, forecast is calling for showers. I know not to plan for rain this far in advance but just in case, what is the rain policy for the park/individual coasters? Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
  12. I have Yom Kippur (Wednesday, October 12) off coming up and saw that Great Adventure is open. Anyone have any experience with a visit in the middle of the week in October? I know well enough to avoid Columbus Day weekend at the park but thought this could be a a nice day with relatively light crowds. Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
  13. Thank you! Already booked my hotel! Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
  14. Hope I'm not repeating any questions but I missed Lightning Rod when I visited Dollywood last month (2 dispatches away from riding before a storm rolled in [CRYING FACE]) but I'm planning on making a return trip this season. I'm pretty limited schedule wise and I'm planning on the first weekend of their holiday event (Nov. 5). Before I commit, I wanted to gauge how likely Lightning Rod will be operating that late in the season. For people who have gone in the cooler months, does Dollywood operate all their coasters? What seems to be their threshold temperature-wise whether they'll be running? Thanks everyone! Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
