  1. Looks like Cedar Point is on my list for next year. Pretty much gonna be a season passholder for all Cedar Fair parks as well.
  2. Any specific questions? I went about 4-5 times last year and had a blast! Ape is right about it being crowded, but I found the mazes didn't have as long of waits as the coasters, all of which are awesome at night! It would be really tough to do everything in one night. I've been to a handful of Halloween events, and I'd put KI Haunt as my favorite after Knott's and Horror Nights, which we all know are industry bests. If you have the chance to go, definitely go! My friends and I have talked about it for the past 2 years and this year we are making sure we go. Got any specific plans o
  3. Holiday World has to be my favorite park and I'd been going to it since I was 3. I hadn't been since 2011 so there was a lot of new goodies to ride. Raven was actually my first coaster I ever rode. I love Wildebeest and Mammoth but Wildebeest is way better in my opinion. The whole spinning tube on Mammoth makes it unique. Surprisingly I can get my hubby to ride those but can't get him to ride one of the coasters. Thunderbird was so cool and worth wait it had. Glad you had a great visit and I hope to catch y'all at a park sometime.
  4. Went to Kings Island yesterday and had a blast especially since it wasn't that busy. I figured it'd be crazy but maybe kids were back in school. Longest wait I had was for Mystic Timbers, which I understand with it being new. In line for another ride the people in front of me were complaining about Vortex. I finally rode Banshee yesterday but couldn't get my hubby to ride. I didn't ride Beast as it gave me a headache as well as a beating years ago when I rode it He's never ridden a coaster and I couldn't even get him to ride stunt coaster. If anybody here has a good idea to help him get over
  5. It is only for season pass holders only apparently. In other words, its not been busy at all. The only longer waits have been Diamondback and Mystic Timbers which was 30 minutes according to the app. I'm not an actual enthusiast but MT was fun. My husband had to ride the old Scooby Doo ride and it had a wait. Whoever said guns were broken were right. Our blasters was junk and didn't work the greatest. Still here and since someone said they had flying eagles we had to find it so in line for it.

  7. Just wondering about a few things...going to Kings Island on Friday for the day. Instead of getting a souvenir bottle that we have to carry around, I saw on the website that you can get a paper cup that you don't carry for the day...how do you buy that? Also Beast night rides, since the park is open until 10 that night, when is a good time to get in line for a night ride?
  8. Sad thing is I've been to Dollywood 4 times in 5 years...it was part of a family vacation and we had to go watch the shows. We weren't allowed to go off on our own and ride rides at all. My last coaster was Thunderbird at Holiday World. Fun ride especially since it was my first wing coaster I have ever rode but I couldn't convince my husband to ride it.
  9. Yuck...a Saturday is when we planned on going. Maybe I'm better off holding out for that park until I can afford a couple of FL+ pass. Maybe we'll just do Kings Island since we don't have to stay anywhere to go there as we live an hour and a half from it plus the waterpark is included as well. Gives me a chance to ride Mystic Timbers.
  10. While I haven't been to Holiday World on a Saturday in August, we recently went earlier this month and it was so hot and humid that day plus very busy. I hadn't been there when it's been that busy. The water park was packed like sardines since it was so hot. The longest lines was for the water coasters, Raging Rapids and Thunderbird.
  11. Perks of Cedar Point vs Kings Island...I've been to Kings Island quite a few times in the last few years but never to Cedar Point so I'm obviously leaning towards Cedar Point. I'm wanting to take a trip there in 2 weeks...where is a good place to stay that isn't at the park? Where are the best places to buy tickets--Kroger or on Cedar Point's website? Anything worth missing/passing over?
  12. I can't wait to go here in June. Is it a better option to buy an all day wristband? I know we're doing Flying Turns cause that looked just awesome from videos of it on youtube. I've been reading the past few options and learned a lot about it.
  13. Thanks for the advice everybody. I did notice it's similar to Kings Island (which is a 2 hour drive from here).
  14. I didn't really want to go thru almost 400 pages of the forum but my husband and I are planning on going to Reading, PA for a WWE event on Saturday, June 3rd. While we're there we're wanting to visit Dorney Park on Sunday, June 4th. How are crowds on Sunday? Where is a good place to stay in the area for the weekend? What is worth riding? Is anybody going to be in the area on that Sunday as we'd love to meet up with any fellow TPR members? Thanks!
  15. Just wanted to let y'all know I applied for Cedar Point today. I didn't know if it was allowed to be posted in here but if anybody works there feel free to PM me details of what it's like to work there, where I should live, etc. Thanks!
  16. Awww I love Mick Foley and it's even cooler that he visits Holiday World. What's even crazier is that I grew up 45 minutes from him. Even crazier...I just saw his daughter Noelle Friday evening. Anyway, can't wait to bring my friends to this theme park so they can experience how awesome the place is!
  17. I'm looking into getting my husband and I season passes to Kings Island but it would be the platinum passes so we could go to Kings Island and Cedar Point. What other Cedar Fair parks are there and where are they located? I also want to visit Holiday World and KennyWood and maybe Kentucky Kingdom (haven't been since 6 Flags days).
  18. When we were at Kings Island about 3 weeks ago we were walking over towards the white water rapids ride and noticed the netting over the walkway with the various items thrown from Diamondback. They definitely get a collection of items including a tennis shoe lol. I definitely recommend Backlot Stunt Coaster (my hubby isn't a coaster fanatic and he loves it) and Banshee. While I can ride a coaster, I can't do front row seats but I sat in the middle and I was impressed with it. It was a main reason I went to the park as I hadn't rode it yet.
  19. Saturday's are very busy for Halloween Haunt, I would recommend buying Fright Lane to get front of the line for the haunted houses, if that's your goal. Or fast lane if your goal is the roller coasters. The park is open 11a to 1a, but the houses don't open until 6 or 7p. The outdoor one's might not open until 8p. I enjoy Halloween Haunt a lot, the houses aren't all that "scary", but with that being said, I have been going every Friday night for the last 5+ years, so I have the houses laid out and know what's going to happen next. Thanks! My hubby and I were just there 2 weeks ago so I
  20. A lot of parks are announcing their 2017 projects and I notice Holiday World hasn't announced anything. Even though it must be nothing major I still love my former home park and I can't wait to see what is in store. With living 4.5-5 hours away, I haven't been since 2011 and look forward to going back next summer for a couple of days. They've added quite a few rides that I have never experienced, including Thunderbird!

  22. My hubby, friends and I are planning on a trip to Kings Island on Saturday, October 8. None of us have ever been during their Halloween event so are Saturdays pretty crazy busy? What is their Halloween event like? It's open 11am-1am that day and we're planning on being there for the long haul.
  23. I've met Mark Martin (a Nascar driver), Martina McBride--about 6 times in the last 3 years. I've also been able to meet John Cena, Natalya, Dean Ambrose and Lillian Garcia from the WWE.
