  1. I went to this park for the first time on 7/23 with a long time ACN friend of 15 years. We finally met irl and had a blast at BGW and Carowinds! Overall we had a great time at the park, lines were pretty much walk on with the exception of the log and rapid rides. Food was great, atmosphere & employees were perfect and the scenery was beautiful! Great Park but I think I liked Tampa better. Quick Review Alpen 2x- Took me 20 years but I finally got to ride this massive thing. It was a solid ride but not my favorite Invert. Some of the transitions are crazy. (Cobra Roll and Entrance to break run) but still a dope coaster, I like it better in the back seat rather the front. Griffon 3x- My Second Dive, loved it, better than Sherika! Tempesto 1x - such fun compact ride, considering I grew up on Mr. Freeze at SFOT, it reminded me so much of it. Those OTSR rubber band straps gotta go though. Apollo 2x - I loved it so much, reminded me of Nitro. Loved the entrance into the helix, and the uphill ascent into the last bunny hill. Loch Ness 1x- A lot smoother than I thought it was going to be and the indoor helix, had no clue about it! Keep this thing forever! Verbolten 2x - OMG such a great ride full of unique elements. Only thing I disliked was the super tight turns back into the station after the drop. But The way I screamed on the drop track! Invadr- 1x. Solid new addition, gave me RMC feelz and I loved the theming in the station! Airtime machine!
  2. Yup definitely making my first visit to this park next year! Bless RMC!

  4. "Record breaking, OR NORTH AMERICA'S FIRST." The image looks like a Skywarp around Earth
  5. First of all it's been hard enough for people to get a ride on it no matter what time of day it is. Second the park isn't open very often past daytime regardless.
  6. In un/related WTF park news: http://nypost.com/2017/06/28/busch-gardens-workers-child-was-fathered-by-11-year-old-boy-cops/ Yikes!
  7. Might be a dumb question but generally how are July 4th crowds? Is it hit or miss?
  8. No way! You must be wrong. 2018 is not a big anniversary year for the park, so why would they add a major steel coaster? Also, it would completely mess up their steel-to-wood coaster ratio. Don't be ridiculous. To be fair The Joker did mess up Discovery Kingdom's balance of coasters. ra Discovery Kingdom does not have a single coaster that doesn't go upside down (besides their kiddie coaster). It was a poor decision by Six Flags regardless of how decent The Joker is.
  9. If this is indeed a Vekoma, it will be interesting to see how their improved their take on flyers. This will for sure be on my radar!
  10. I agree with the Thunderbolt love. Speaking of the turnaround element... I'm wondering if Zamperla actually ever created a name for this element? RCDB just list it as a Dive Loop but it's oh so much more than a typical DL.
  11. Alpengiest turned 20 this year and still holding on to the tallest full-circuit Invert Record. I think I will finally get to ride this icon this summer. Happy Birthday! *Photo source - Buschgardenva.files.wordpress.com
