  1. Longtime lurker here . I always thought they should re-theme New France to Norway, considering Canada isn't in Europe. It wouldn't be that hard. A few textual changes here and there, some grass on roofing. InvadR would be even more thematically appropriate!
  2. I can't remember who said this, but I remember reading a quote that went something like, "The difference between an amusement park and a theme park is that if you take the rides out of a theme park, it's still a theme park. If you take the rides out of an amusement park, it's a parking lot." KI, KD, and even HP fall into a grey area. They have minimal themes but nice landscaping. I guess if you took the rides out of them, they'd just be nice parks. So I suppose Amusement Park is correct?
  3. Does anyone have a map of the event? I've been looking through the event website but for whatever reason they don't have a map posted. So obnoxious and inconvenient! I'm only asking because I like to plan out my visit, and a map would be really useful.
  4. Well I hope PETA sues this dumbshat LA stereotype Shelaninaninanaia for animal cruelty. Six Flags saved the dog's life so they should not be liable. I bet one of the kennel workers took the dog home so it wouldn't have to be subjected to this owner's asshattery anymore.
  5. 1) Disneyland 2) IOA 2) Busch Gardens Europe 3) Hersheypark 4) Epcot 5) Kings Dominion
  6. Those riders were so effing annoying that I almost wish this thing went down Final Destination 3 style (without riders falling out, slamming into support structure, or generally getting injured of course ). Whoever threw/let go of that backpack is an idiot and should be banned from the parks. As for the "penny trick", it's stupid and idiotic for the guy to do that since it COULD hit someone's face, but at least he wasn't doing a cell phone or brick trick. OUCH. I think the best part is when that man sitting in the back pulls out his cell and tries to communicate what happened. "They freaked the f*@king $h*t outta me cause we did the LOOP; and I felt that we barely made it... maybe cause we rode it in the back? We went up, and it stopped, and we went back" There is no hope for humanity.
  7. ^ Personally I don't care for WDW since I don't live in FL anymore. I know they're adding onto FL and building a new hotel, but Animal Kingdom is still lacking rides after a decade, Hollywood Studios is thematically confused and in certain aspects embarrassing. I'm just saying compared to DL or even Tokyo DL, WDW doesn't really strive for amazing quality. And I don't take Micechat's or any fan sites word too seriously, I'm just reporting what I've read.
  8. Oh cool. Now Disneyland can have the same amazing quality as WDW. I don't understand why the company keeps promoting people who don't understand the service industry. If you cut costs to turn a bigger profit, customers will see the declining quality of the product and flee. It already started to happen at WDW. DL has been doing exceptionally well though, but only because they actually partake in capital investments to improve their product. Micechat has already begun to protest and spread the word... they are terrified (like many others) that DL will go right back into the Pressler era. Let's all hope DL will stay untouched by this new change in management. If not, you'll find me at Universal and Tokyo Disneyland.
  9. I can't wait to return to Ocean City in July! It's my second home!!! I've been going there every summer since I was born, so viewing your post made me joygasm. I still remember how Jolly Rogers used to be when I was a tike. It was great back then, so many more rides. My first coaster was actually this Zamperla Dragon they used to have. All it did was helix but it scared the crap out of me lol. The Log Flume they have was also my first major water ride. Too bad the park is not what it used to be.
  10. I was surprised too. When I think of B&M I usually think smooth but intense. I must have had bad luck cause I banged my head through most of the transitions no matter how I braced it. I would have ridden Superman and Apocalypse but I was starting to feel kinda nauseous from being tossed around all day. Yeah I noticed the metal pads under the rails. Really caught me off guard but it was still a fun ride in a "OMG WE GONNA DIE YALL" way. BTW Green Lantern looks sick. Some people were taking pics of it near the construction walls and one girl said "WTF is THAT?" lol. I'm definitely gonna return to finish off the rest of the coasters because I'm at 96 coasters right now. SO CLOSE TO 100!!!
  11. So I visited SFMM for the first time yesterday, and I must say it was not what I expected. To me, the park was like some boastful love-child of Hersheypark and Kings Dominion (who's probably sleeping with Busch Gardens Europe, skank). Lots of hills, lots of coasters. I can see how people would be turned off or on by this park. What surprised me most was how disappointed I was with their coasters. Mind you, I only got to ride Tatsu, X2, Ninja, Ridler's Revenge, Scream, Colossus, Revolution, Goldrusher, and Goliath. The only coasters I found myself loving are Tatsu, Goliath, Ninja, and X2. The rest were jerky, uncomfortable experiences that my bleeding ears and ribs would like to forget. Here are some snap judgments: 1) Superman is insanely loud. Like, earsplittingly loud. 2) Goldrusher doesn't have upstop wheels. I thought we were going to die. 3) I now see that Riddler's revenge is bashing your head into your harness and making your ears bleed. 4) Tatsu was great, but I think Manta is better. And FYI operators were just as slow over in FL ( at least when I went) 5) X2 was the most insane thing I've ever experienced. I was basically out of my seat the entire time - and therefore lost my sunglasses 6) Food is terrible and overpriced. Terribly overpriced. 7) Goliath was great, but the helix of death was overrated. 8) Colossus was strangely boring. I kept thinking "this was the ride in Nat. Lampoon's Vacation!" Even though I rode near the back, and was surprised they didn't brake the train at the MCBR like everyone told me they would, I didn't really feel any airtime :O 9) Scream is horrible. One train operation, ugly parking lot theme, rough rough rough! 10) Like with Colossus, I was excited to ride Revolution because of "Vacation". I am so glad I have SuperDooperLooper to wipe that rib-cracking experience from my memory. 11) Ninja was surprisingly intense and unique, but my love will always and forever remain with BBW. 12) I was surprised the park actually had some theming in areas. With a little bit of renaming or retheming, certain areas could be quite nice. 13) Definitely the best six flags park I've been to (out of SFA and SFGAd)
  12. Quick off-topic question: I'm heading to SFMM for the FIRST TIME on Thursday and I was planning on purchasing my tickets online ($36 holla!). I know with some parks, if you want to buy your tickets online, you have to do so at least two days before your intended visit for some reason or another. I was just wondering if that's the case with SFMM? If I buy my tickets online the day before my visit, should I be fine?
  13. Ok so from what I gather I should hit up X2 and/or Tatsu first depending on if I arrive early (which I will... hopefully). And if not, then I go counter-clockwise to go against crowd flow. Awesome. In terms of food, what places are the best quality and price? I enjoy vomiting up funnel cakes and fried chicken on rides as much as the next person, but healthyish food would be pleasant! Especially if I'm gonna be testing my thrill tolerance on rides I've never been on. Seriously, I may love roller coasters.... but X2 and Viper have me nervous!
  14. Hey everyone! So, I have recently moved to SoCal from Florida (Of course I move when Fantasyland and HP are expanding ) and I'm visiting SFMM next week for the FIRST TIMEEE!!! I'm usually insanely prepared for theme park trips; I practically study the map and make a plan of attack, but I just can't figure out SFMM. What's the best way to tackle this park? Should I go clock-wise? Counter-clockwise? Should I hit X2 or Tatsu or Goliath first? I need some help yall.
  15. ^ I don't have a problem with ANY park adding a new, thrilling ride. I just think cramming them on top of each other looks tacky and diminishes the theming and/or atmosphere. As eddie200330 wrote: But I'm a coaster whore, so I'd probably end up riding anything they add. *Naughty Panda*
