  1. Looking at the Saturday forecast, I305 will probably be up before TT will. Traditionally, we can run in the rain (lacking thunder of course). However, we find that one train tends run better than the other in the rain, and depending on how MUCH rain there is, we may stop for and wait for the rain to die down until we get the go-ahead to reopen.
  2. Hmmm... Fury 325 Tempesto Skyrush Flying Turns Rougarou (if we're being lenient) Mystic Timbers
  3. Glad to see you had a good time at the park! Sorry 'bout that I305 situation. I don't know which train you were on, but the grey train doesn't like to run in the rain (even if it drizzles sometimes). In normal weather, the red train is usually the one that would have problems; but if it's rain, it's always the grey train. As for Volcano...it shouldn't be going anywhere any time soon.
  4. While I would personally wait until Tuesday to avoid crowds, there is rain in the forecast on Monday, which could scare off some guests. However, it's still Memorial Day weekend, one of the craziest weekends of the year. As for schools, the counties closer to the park (Caroline, Hanover) should be out of school.
  5. Can confirm I305/FoF is like how the others mentioned. If you can secure your loose articles (hats/glasses/cellphones)in a safe pocket, you can ride with it. Glasses need a strap...but you guys seem to know the rest. I'm just gonna thank you all for being so cooperative, whether you've visited the park yet or not. It's kinda nice to know not everybody is ready to tear our throats out when we say that the bins have been removed from the ride.
  6. Still haven’t gotten on a StarFlyer yet, but this still looks super cool. The views must be awesome.
  7. ^By 305? At least one or two songs are on the park playlist that we've heard. But then again, there's probably a good 200+ songs on the 'park playlist'. As for Volcano, I've seen Volcano only once with back row riders. I've seen fire only once as well. But the rumble sounds are defintely still around.
  8. I've been asked both on and off the job which ride is better. I personally say I305 in response, but I honestly don't know which ride is better. They're both awesome.
  9. Curious, how loud are the RMC lift hills? I've been watching this thing test over my breaks this past weekend, and I even almost got to ride it Sunday. But that lift hill is LOUD. I haven't been on any other RMC to compare, so I figured I ask around here.
  10. Aw, seeing Dueling Dragons pulls at the heart. I love seeing photos the ride running in unison. I never got to ride it while it did, but it looks so satisfying! But alas, that time is gone...
  11. I've lived in NOVA for five years now, haven't bothered to drive up to SFA once. While I personally haven't gone because KD is closer to me than SFA by an hour, those I know who have gone there swear they wouldn't return. It's infamous for being 'horrible' by my peers.
  12. Yay! Best time of the year (besides the end of the off-season)! Looking forward to the updates.
  13. Your photos are gorgeous. KD is my home park, which I visit quite often, but you made it look prettier than normal. Glad to see you enjoyed your trip to the two Virginia parks! I'm going to jump on the 'back-is-better-than-front' in terms of where to sit on I305. I love the front row, which I enjoy more at night. But the back is a whole other beast. You have to ride it twice to get the different experience. I'm also glad to see someone else who enjoys Apollo's Chariot as much as I do.
  14. Had multiple friends who visited the park yesterday and warned them to beware. I've been through that last Saturday a handful of times; we used to visit with our FastPass+, but we now tend to go on Columbus Day weekend. Three hours for Volcano...that's something. I too was disappointed with Blood on the Bayou. My party agreed that while the set was very good, the lighting was so dim we could barely see certain parts (then again, we were the first group to go of the night). Though, the area inside that building is small; if you fill it with a lot of actors, I think it would feel crowded. But, that's just me. No Vacancy is still my favorite maze in the park. Lockdown is a close second, though. Random question; has anyone gone through Blackout after it was moved? If so, has it changed? Last year we waited for quite awhile after hearing about Kings Island's version and was very disappointed. We didn't bother with it this year, and instead got more I305 laps.
