  1. ^^ I was there in June, and at that time, that's what all the seating was like. It was at least 3 of the same 4 food stations as in these photos, so I guess they've had a long soft-open - nothing indicated it was new or still in previews. The tables are bolted to the floor, and with the high exposed ceilings and hard floors, the noise really reverberates. The food was better than we'd been expecting.

  2. A few updates

    G Giant Dipper (Belmont Park San DIego)

    H Hellcat (Hades 360 by default among extant)

    I Invertigo (CGA) only other I is Iron Wolf, so none are extant with an I.

  4. I've always wondered about those slides that look like they're made out of drainage tubing. Wouldn't that be like a slow and painful experience to go down with those ripples or is there something added inside that smooths it out? Or do you go down using a mat?

     

    Also, if they added a loop on the end of it with water, it would look just like that old ghetto looping slide at Action Park!

     

    The inside isn't ribbed (for your pleasure ), so it's actually fairly smooth; just slightly washboarded. The places I've gone on them had carpet remnants for mats.

  5. Finally made my way over there for the first time in awhile...

     

    1. Impulse is really good. Drop was awesome and the ride packs a lot into a small footprint. Perfect compliment to the park.

     

    2. Had one of the best rides on Twister that I've ever had. Rides just like it did when it opened.

     

    3. I think I might have to stop riding roller coasters. I got through one ride each on Phoenix and Twister without a problem, but once we got to Impulse I got a really uncomfortable pressure headache right after we got out of the loop; had this happen to me at Hershey four years ago as well. I've had issues with motion sickness before and I was wearing sea bands all day, but I still felt like garbage. Not sure what else to try. I went from being able to ride Twister 47 times in a day to this.

     

    It may be a good idea to see your doctor - could be hypertension. (I'm pretty sure that if your BP is under control with drugs, the warning signs about high BP don't apply to you..)

     

     

    I've mentioned it to doctors and they never seem to think it's a big deal. I was at an appointment last month and IIRC my blood pressure was like 110/70, so I'm not sure if it's that. It sucks regardless as roller coasters have been a huge part of my life ever since I was like 10.

     

    Guess not. I had similar symptoms that went away when I started BP meds. But if it's a big deal to you, it should be a big deal to your doctors...
