  1. I honestly think Pantheon could be the best new ride of 2022. We had a trip to BGW planned for last summer that got canceled, so I’m hoping to make it out there this year once it opens. BGW is one of my favorite parks and it’s been too long since my last visit.
  2. Bert nailed it here, you definitely want to take advantage of the preview night. The park tends to empty out later in the evening with all the families, so the lines really die down the last 2 hours or so. The last time I visited, I was able to knock out 3-4 rides each on Skyrush, Storm Runner, and Fahrenheit during the preview period. Laff Track tends to be one of the longer lines in the park due to the lower capacity and its wide appeal, so that's another one you may want to ride during the preview period or first thing in the morning.
  3. I'm really interested to see how the Spiderman ride turns out. People will definitely compare it to the Spiderman ride at IOA, which is still one of the best dark rides in the world, so the stakes are pretty big here. I like the retheming of the area though and it makes a lot more sense with the Guardians ride now. Bug's Life was never a great IP and I don't think anyone will miss it.
  4. I am fairly similar when I visit the parks. When I'm with friends and family, it's more about enjoying the park at a leisurely pace than riding as many rides as I can. I'll still get there before park opening, but I'll let who I'm with dictate how the day goes. But when I visit a park by myself, especially when I've traveled to the park, it's all about quantity and squeezing in as many rides as possible. The most rides I've ever gotten in a single day was 52 at SF Great America about 4-5 years ago when they still allowed double-rides with the Platinum Flash Pass. My CP record is 40 rides
  5. Yeah, I think Harley Quinn is gone. I never got a chance to ride it myself, but from all accounts it was a VERY underwhelming ride. Plus it had extensive downtime and I heard the noise was pretty much unbearable. I don't think anyone will miss it.
  6. Glad that you enjoyed it and that the food/service was as good as I remembered. I’m hoping to to get out to BGW once Pantheon opens and I’ll definitely be eating there!
  7. Agreed, just ride Comet or Lightning Racer more, they’re much better rides than Wildcat. And don’t forget about Laff Track, the indoor queue is a blast and it’s a super fun ride.
  8. It kills me how many people are always looking for something for free. Six Flags is not at fault here and doesn’t owe these people anything.
  9. Every time I go to Williamsburg, I make an effort to eat at Food for Thought. It’s the #1 rated restaurant on Yelp for a reason. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food and the service is fantastic. The pot roast melts in your mouth, the ribs are so tender that the meat falls off the bone, and they have a great take on Pad Thai. I’ve never had anything there that I didn’t absolutely love. If your family are big meat eaters, Old City BBQ is another one of our favorites. Their brisket is some of the best I’ve had outside of Texas.
  10. Fiesta Texas is truly the underrated gem in the Six Flags portfolio. The setting in the quarry is just amazing and I love the interaction with several of the coasters. We did a Holiday in the Park Texas trip in 2019 to hit up both SFOT and SFFT. My youngest had just barely hit 54 inches, so it was fun having her ride all of the big rides for the first time. Her favorite on the whole trip was definitely Superman, I think we rode it 3 or 4 times that day (thanks to Flash Pass). Anyone who hasn't been to SFFT should absolutely put it their list of parks to visit.
  11. Great video on the 100th anniversary of Lagoon's Roller Coaster:
  12. Looks like DW will be open Mon-Wed-Fri-Sat-Sun throughout April, so I would go on a Monday or Wednesday in mid to late April. Spring breaks should be over by then and no schools will be out yet.
  13. I love the Six Flags parks in Texas. We did a trip two years ago and hit up both parks for Holiday in the Park. The original RMCs are still two of my favorites (I-Rat is just outside my top 10) and each park has a lot to offer. Thanks for your report, looking forward to your thoughts on Fiesta Texas.
  14. They opened a new beer garden restaurant last year and it was actually really good. The menu wasn't huge but we liked everything we tried. They had about 20 different beers on tap with heavy emphasis on local brews. A big plus was that it has indoor seating, which was really nice as our visit was in July. The park was still limiting capacity in July and we went on a Tuesday, so there really weren't any lines. The longest lines we waited in all day were for Cannibal and Rattlesnake Rapids, and those were only 15 minute waits. Most of the rides were walk-ons or a 1-2 train wait. I don't t
  15. I spent 3 days at DW in the summer of 2017 and Lightning Rod ran consistently my entire visit with little downtime. It has pretty much everything you could ask for in a coaster (great drop, airtime, laterals, etc) and the night rides are truly epic. I've hesitated to go back to DW as LR seemed to be running worse the last year or two, so I really hope that the RMC redo solves the dependability issues.
