  1. Awesome. That's exactly how it was on my visit last year. Thanks!
  2. What was the FL+ line like for Orion? I know the park was very busy today but from the webcam it looks like Diamondback's FL+ line was pretty much empty as usual. I love FL+ at this park.
  3. Wow those are some great pictures! Glad to see this park open again and glad you had such a great visit.
  4. I haven't ridden it and I completely disagree with your second point here. I made my only trip to Dollywood a few years back and would have very happily ridden it running slower than normal, instead of not riding it at all. These changes are finally making me consider a trip back to the park as long as it helps the reliability. Coasterbill's side-by-side more accurately describes my 2+ days at the park than the other side-by-side. That said, sure the ride is running slower in the new video but this isn't even a remotely fair comparison. Look at any video of any roller coaster running an e
  5. No skip-the-line pass (other than for haunts, but you said April) and single rider lines will not be available when the park opens. I only went a few times last year so maybe someone else can speak to the lines in the current state. But crowds don't get crazy very often at Lagoon, especially in the spring. In April I'd be more concerned with operations and rides that haven't open yet. The spring prior to Memorial Day is usually hit and miss with rides that aren't ready yet or running at limited capacity (pre-COVID). You can have some fantastic days at the park in the spring though, especi
  6. In my opinion, their lineup would be improved if they replaced T3 with picnic tables. But people seem to enjoy it and it gets a lot of riders so I doubt it's going anywhere anytime soon.
  7. I think this is worth mentioning for a few reasons. It has a really solid lineup, and with FL+ at this park you can get on more coasters than any other park I've been to, excluding special events. Considering we're talking about going to a park specifically to ride roller coasters, I think that's relevant. Also, if you're planning a trip and going to Cedar Point, Kings Island is close enough that you don't necessarily need to lose a day to travel. My two cents, in the last 3 years some of my best days have been at Kings Island. Other favorite USA parks that I've been to (only looking at c
  8. I was supposed to have my first ever visit to Kennywood this year. This is really a bummer. We've got two of those flats here at Lagoon (although our Paratrooper arm never comes down) but I've never seen a Kangaroo in person. Ironically, as I read my own message I realized Lagoon has a few live kangaroos, but that's a story for another day.
  9. And without the magic number of 20 they don't have something to market? Not being taller, faster, loopier, more coasters, etc?
  10. While I do think that MM is removing Tidal Wave and maybe not a coaster, is being the first park to 20 coasters something anybody outside the marketing department is even remotely interested in? For whatever reason I seem to see this stated as fact from time to time, but it seems like nothing more than a tagline along with the other 15 "world records" parks feel they need to celebrate with each new addition. They're studying cost vs popularity of each ride here to reduce maintenance costs and free up money. I don't think that formula includes whether or not it gets them to some magic number of
  11. I think you'll enjoy the ride. Based on this post and your other posts here. Don't compare it to other rides like most people do, just go enjoy the damn thing. The new theming is cool, the ride looks nice, and yeah it also has a 300 foot drop and goes 91 miles per hour. I loved Orion and rode it over and over. Too short you say? That's fine, just gives me more time to hop back in the FL+ line to walk-on and get back on the 300 foot drop that much sooner. If I ever get to the point that I just want to complain about a ride like Orion, I'll probably stop going on roller coaster trips.
  12. Are they really? I've ridden Mystic Timbers probably 40 times over the past 3 1/2 years and I usually look at the signs while I'm waiting for the ops to check restraints. I swear they were a little different this year... Oh well, sorry about that. Didn't mean to mislead. Edit: Searching the internet a bit more, I think I was thinking of the "shoot a staple wherever you'd drive a nail" sign with the saw blade next to it. I was thinking there was the nailgun sign and a saw blade sign, but I'm sure you're right. Apparently I'm not as observant as I had thought.
