    When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!
  1. In March several of the big slides were roped off (not the 10 story one though) and the reason I got from workers that the old owners were kind of operating out of state compliance on having operators for the big slides because of grandfathering. When the new operator came in they wanted to comply with the state's standards that these slides needed more oversight to operate safely and the reason they didn't have every slide up was due to lower staff levels off-season. That all said, still the greatest tourist attraction I've ever been to, and no less amazing than my prior visits. There's n
  2. I had already sold myself on attending Holiwood Nights next year but you just double sold me on it. The Voyage is the best coaster I have ever been on and it is so much better and more terrifying than any other coaster I've done that I have no idea why anyone would think otherwise. More airtime, more laterals, more 90 degrees, more tunnels, more woods, super long, well maintained (just don't make your visit to the park near the end of the operating season); it just blows everything else away.
  3. I think the only coaster in this park where I could see having a second train would be Ride of Steel. The lines they get don't really justify an expense for Predator, Viper, or Motocoaster in all honesty, even on a busy day I can't see those lines ever over 45 minutes. Except...they would probably have to upgrade to a newer restraint system and buy two trains if they did upgrade for Ride of Steel, for consistency. So I am all for this park not having two trains for anything and spending that money on new attractions instead.
  4. That Drop gives me Drachen Fire 3.0 vibes and I love it so much.
  5. Based on my experience last week that itinerary is like barely almost doable but most likely just outside of reach without FLP. Wait times on June 11th were about 25 for Leviathan, 35 for Yukon, 20ish for Behemoth and 15 for Vortex before the park started clearing out around 5 PM (and the B&Ms still had some wait until close). All of those flats had a multi-cycle wait to ride. Single rider for Yukon was still like 15 minutes. So just the coasters you want to do could take up to like 4 hours. But it's also hard to justify buying FLP as mostly it's just switching rides and walking betwee
  6. Hello All! It looks like my trip will fall before Maxx Force's opening day (great job as usual Six Flags), on July 8th so I have a few Flashpass questions (I'm going to reserve 2 Gold Flashpass online unless that's not the best way to get one): Does this park use the shittybands or the Classic Q bot? Which rides are not worth ever using Flashpass for? I am planning on going straight to the back of the park and Goliath once I pick up from reservation counter, anything that has a higher priority than that? I am travelling with 3 people total, one is a Six Flags over Georgia Gold Pass
  7. I have to laugh a little at the "can't be done" comments coming in after my visit. My final Ride Count from Canada's Wonderland on Tuesday, with Fastlane Plus. I had ridden the 16 adults-allowed coasters by 3PM. Still could have done all without Fastlane just fewer laps on the big three. Backlot Stunt Coaster: 1x Behemoth: 6x Dragon Fyre: 1x Flight Deck: 1x Ghoster Coaster: 1x Leviathan: 6x Mighty Canadian Minebuster: 2x Silver Streak: 1x The Bat 1x The Fly: 1x Thunder Run: 1x Time Warp: 1x Vortex: 3x Wilde Beast: 1x Wonder Mountain's Guardian: 1x Yukon Striker: 5x Drop Tow
  8. They don't post the EPA schedule in advance except for like 2 months out at best. I would say it's a likely thing that IOA will start having EPA due to this ride. My best advice would be: 1. Book both Universal and Points rewards hotels but make sure both are fully refundable. 2. Non-Private VIP tour will have front of the line access on this ride. or 3. You could do a Timeshare tour which all give 7 Day PTP tickets that include EPA if you wanted to, and end up costing about the same as a 1 day PTP at regular price. There's really no reason to buy Universal in advance anyway.
  9. Haha this would have made perfect reading last night before my trip to the park today. This park must have been hell before the B&M trio showed up. They have 4 great coasters and 13 that are either mediocre or the worst of the worst. I could really see this place benefitting from a launch coaster whenever they get their next major design!
  10. Your review of Waldameer made me seriously consider adding 5 hours of driving to my trip the next two days to squeeze in 3 hours at the park (while also doing Fantasy Island/Seabreeze and Darien Lake). I absolutely adore the Voyage and Ravine Flyer 2 is calling my name. But alas I think I'll fit it in with Cedar Point and Kennywood one day soon. Seabreeze makes more sense for this trip.
  11. At least they have Six Flags beat if they can open all their rides on opening day! I hope this little park survives forever, but I won't be sticking my neck out for it. Probably combo with Waldameer at some point like every other enthusiast lol.
  12. That's awesome! Can't wait for the report as you always highlight the best of everything. A Couple of questions: 1. I am going here solo next week, Groupon has theme park admission for $29.99, the park website sells Fastlane + for 79.44 after their processing fee, making $109.43. Is that a better bet to pre-book than just buying Fastlane+ on arriving to the park? Can you also go in before opening if opening is at 10 and get that purchased? The park also sells the combo online of admission+Fastlane Plus for 129. Looked at all inclusive ticket too but it's 165, I don't think the extr
  13. Haha unfortunately my SO who cannot attend has promised me he'll kill me if I do all of the Niagara falls tourist stuff without him. So I'm pretty much just planning to get a quick view of it (from Canada side, Thank you!!!) and see Marineland so in the future we don't have to go back there :lol:
  14. ^I do have one. Plan is Arrive at Buffalo airport Sunday 845, Martin's Fantasy Island/Seabreeze(open until 9PM) on Sunday, followed by Darien Lake/drive to Toronto Monday (and probably take the time to at least see Niagara Falls from the public park on the river), Canada's Wonderland all day Tuesday, then Marineland until like 2pm on Wednesday (pretty much just NEED to ride Dragon Mountain and the crazy S&S tower), fly home to Orlando from Buffalo 545pm. I don't like having to be on the Canada side at all on Wednesday but that's how the park hours work out for it. Frontier was $83 doll
  15. Hey all! I decided to go to Buffalo next week because Frontier had a ridiculously cheap flight there. I had two questions in regards to Darien Lake: 1. The Park is listed as being open from 10-5 on Monday and Waterpark from 12-5PM. Then they are closed for 3 days followed by daily operation through the summer. Does anyone have insight on why they are even open on Monday, and should I be suspicious or wary of giant school groups or something? 2. I have an active Six Flags over Georgia Gold Season pass. I cannot find any definitive information on the SF website...so does that pass get me
