  1. In the USA, I'd say.... SF Magic Mountain, Cedar Point, SF Great Adventure are going to be your top 3 heavy hitters. Very low on wood coasters is the only thing (though you do get El Toro, which is one of the very best).. However: if you wanted to do one trip with multiple parks, there are a few double / triple headers that will give you a lot of bang for your buck... King's Island / Cedar Point / Kennywood (fly into Cincinnati, fly home from Pittsburgh) Holiday World / Kentucky Kingdom / King's Island (fly into Louisville, fly home from Cincinnati) Dorney Park, / Kn
  2. Another Kennywood Thunderbolt post... It's so weird and I definitely did not experience the kind of forces that made it feel necessary. The laterals on the helix of Ghostrider felt stronger.
  3. In my experience, $25 does not buy you that much food in a theme park... lol.
  4. I missed out on getting a night ride on The Beast because it started raining. I was driving up to Cedar Point the next day, so I didn't want to stay another full day at KI and do a 4 hour drive in the middle of the night just for one single ride. (small regret) When I visited IOA for the one and only time, I almost walked back to Dragon Challenge for another ride before I left, but I decided to give my body a break. I still rode it 3 or 4 times that day, but if I had known it would be gone forever, I definitely would have done one more on the red side.
  5. I'll admit, I was not much of an entertainment park guest until the last couple years, but I've come to believe it's important to the overall park experience. People need something to do besides wait in line and some way to form memories with other people instead of just machines. But you're right though. That's just not something that current era Six Flags is interested in. Which is such a shame, because they've got really quality IP available in both D.C. and Looney Tunes that could make for a gold mine of entertainment. And Magic Mountain is capable of it.... the Batman shows were
  6. And then Desperado opened at Buffalo Bill's and was recognized by Guinness World Records as the tallest even though it was 4 feet shorter than Big One and tied with Steel Phantom for drop height. So much drama.... Although, by Blackpool's measuring standards, Desperado is actually about 2,800 ft tall.
  7. I wish they could bring back the Batman stunt shows. They were so cheesy but SO FUN. Plus, the park is desperately low on live entertainment and things to do beside wait in line for coasters.
  8. So we've all seen how creative parks sometimes get with their marketing of new attractions, especially when it comes to milking incredibly niche World Records. What are some of your favorite weird records that parks have advertised, or what are some records you can think of on your own? Fury 325 as the World's Tallest Giga is what really sent me... Also, I'm pretty sure that Six Flags Magic Mountain is the only theme park in the world with two different mobius loop coasters. That could be something.
  9. Shut down the week of Boysenberry Festival last year, so I'm glad to finally get back to it! $45 seems a little steep compared to the prices we've seen before ($35 for Halloween was a great deal, considering how much there was to see). But hey... they gotta find a way to make some money.
  10. A lot of rides have great first drops and then lose their speed / forces after the midcourse. What are your favorite coasters that you think get more intense / exciting toward the end?
  11. Considering that the OC Sheriff has publicly stated multiple times that he will not be directing his department to enforce any COVID related regulations, and the head of the OC Health Department refused to issue a mask mandate until being superseded by the state, I'm gonna go ahead and call BS on that idea that they're even close to the toughest.
  12. Water World at Universal, hands down. In only about 20 minutes, this show accomplishes so much and it's always a thrill. Tied for 2nd place are: Mystery Lodge at KBF, and Poseidon's Fury at IOA.
  13. Seen a couple of nights so far.... Overall, there's a lot of good stuff happening. I definitely noticed a difference from first weekend to second weekend, like maybe they weren't quite done by Opening Day. Lots of stuff seemed more finished/polished on week 2. I think this is a great year to get the season pass, because there is so much to see if you have time to wander and explore. Lots of Easter Egg moments scattered around the park, and finally the return of more live shows! MAZES: Depths - Incredible design and construction, but the staffing was terrible the two times I went throu
