  1. That's exactly what I thought when I first saw the layout. Evidently it's going to be more like Wave Breaker at SWSA, so that should differentiate it a bit from Manta, which is an underrated coaster IMO.
  2. Thanks for the update, WW is going up fast! I bet it opens before Aquaman at SFOT, lol!
  3. I wouldn't say that these rides aren't attracting guests, Tumbili had the longest line in the park. Part of that is due to the capacity but it's also new and different. Parks keep building these coasters because they are cheap and it gives them a new coaster to promote, they are the Vekoma Boomerangs of the 2020's. As enthusiasts, we aren't that impressed but it seems like the GP really likes them.
  4. I was at the park last Friday too and it was my first time back in over 10 years. I feel pretty much the same as you regarding the coasters. I liked Pantheon a lot but I think I expected more from it. I also only got 1 ride due to the downtime, so I may have a higher opinion if I got to ride a few more times and really experience it. The B&Ms were running great and are still the stars of the park. Griffon is definitely my favorite dive coaster and Apollo is still a top tier hyper. Alpengeist is so forceful and has such a great layout. Loch Ness is running really well for its age and I still love those interlocking loops. But I have to say, Verbolten was the suprise of the day! It's such a ridiculously fun coaster and the drop track really scared my kids (I kept it a surprise for them). We ended up riding it 4 times since we liked it so much. Overall it was a great visit and the park is just as beautiful and well maintained as I remembered it.
  5. Headed to BGW tomorrow, glad to hear that all rides have been running and that Pantheon has been fairly reliable. I haven’t been to the park in about 10 years, so any advice on a plan of attack would be appreciated. I am planning on getting QQ Plus since I don’t know when I will be back and want to make the most of the day.
  6. Thanks for the advice, I will hold off purchasing it and just see how the lines are. I think we'll get there early and hit Tumbili first.
  7. We are headed to the park on Sunday and it looks a little chilly (high of 58), so I'm guessing it won't be too crowded. I was planning on purchasing FL+, but I certainly don't want to spend the money if it's not needed. My thought is to hit up Tumbili/Reptilian first then head to Twisted Timbers. Are there any other rides that tend to get long lines that we should hit next? Also, any food recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
  8. Carowinds has just about everything you could ask for coaster-wise except a RMC, so that would make a lot of sense for the next addition.
  9. Xcelerator isn't going anywhere, especially since they just spent a bunch of money to repaint it!
  10. Glad to see that the new coaster is still being built. Wonder if they will have it open this summer?
  11. Would make complete sense as SEAS has recently put them in at BGW and SWSA. I am all for them adding Screaming Swings to all their parks, they are one of my favorite flat rides.
  12. I think you'll be fine with those days as the big crowds probably won't roll in until Friday July 1st. It's too bad that the Frontier Festival will be over by then (ends June 19). We went to CP last year during the festival and absolutely loved it. We got a couple of the tasting cards and had almost no lines for food, and most of the food options were really good.
  13. Agreed, I don't really care what colors they paint the coasters, I'm just glad they are painting them!
  14. I'm headed to the park soon after you on April 15th, so I am hoping everything is back open by that time as well!
  15. Great report Bert, I plan on getting a SeaWorld Platinum pass this year and hitting all the new rides. I've never been to SWSA, so I'm looking forward to making my first visit to the park!
  16. Because you have groups of people that want to ride together in the same train and sometimes that leaves empty seats. Pretty sure that WW at SFFT had a single rider line, not sure if they still do.
  17. Hope you have a great trip, we absolutely loved our visit to Barcelona and PortAventura. Make sure you get some night rides on Shambhala, it's an airtime machine and the night rides are insane!
  18. PortAventura is super easy to get to by train, it has its own stop on the train line. So you'll just have to taxi from the airport to the main train station in Barcelona. I would plan at least 2 days at the park, or 3 if you want to hit the water park. I would also suggest staying at one of the on-site hotels as park admission is included if you stay there. The park also has express passes you can buy, which I would suggest getting at least one of the days of your visit. I would check out the park's english website as it was very helpful when I was planning our trip back in 2019.
  19. Cabana Bay is our go-to hotel at UO as well. But if you are going to get Express Passes, I would compare the cost of the more expensive hotels that include the Express Passes. For my family of 5, it's cheaper to stay at Cabana Bay as we only have to get one room and we just buy the tickets with the express passes added on.
  20. Pretty sure those vests are part of the restraints as they look the same as the Valravn restraints.
  21. I did a trip to Cedar Point last June and here are my thoughts: Definitely buy Fast Lane Plus for the day you are there. We were able to ride SteVe 4 times in just over an hour with FL+, where it would've taken us the same time to ride it once in the regular line. I would stay at Cedar Point Express, it's cheaper than Breakers and you still get the 1 hour early entry. We rode Valravn, MF, and Maverick during the early entry, so it was definitely worth it. (Note that the FL lines don't open until regular park hours). By the time we got off Maverick, the FL line was open and we jumped back in line for about a 10 minute wait. If they are doing a food festival when you are there, take advantage of that. We were there during the Frontier Festival and there were hardly any lines at the food festival booths. We bought 2 tasting cards and just grabbed something quick at the booths whenever we were hungry.
  22. Wasn't SeaWorld having trouble paying their vendors last year? I seem to remember an article about some of the ride companies filing liens against them. I find it hard to believe they now have the funds to take over Cedar Fair.
  23. Very smart move, if you don't already have a membership, you should definitely grab one before they cease to exist. My Diamond Elite membership is better than any of the new tiers and costs much less.
  24. Thanks for the update Bert, I think this coaster will be a great addition to the park. I'm hoping to get back to SA this year sometime to ride this and the new giant swing at SWSA.
