  1. Sarcasm or not. This is actually very accurate. It’s November and I haven’t seen one footer in the ground on the land they cleared. July is a real possibility because we all know how they will say "Well it was a harsh winter" because it’s said every time construction gets behind in any industry.
  2. No hate from this guy. Also I would have taken Wicked Twister in a heartbeat had they relocated it. This reimagining of Zambezi Zinger is original and not a cloned coaster such as a raptor. Not throwing shade on a raptor either. I just think you gotta be excited when something original comes to your park that hasn’t ever been done before.
  3. EXACTLY. I hope they stick to it. I know things change when they go to build. I’m hoping the tunnel is on a turnaround low to the ground and has some length. Let’s bring back the snake fell on my head in the tunnel rumors. Not saying it didn’t happen, but that just adds to the thrill factor
  4. I’m pumped for this. Also worlds of fun’s website mentions a mid course tunnel( not seen in the vid).
  5. Also the fact that it was stretched out over 4 or 5 seasons seems like they were scraping for Pennies to pay for it if they finished it themselves. All that being said, I’m really pumped about what we might get for next year. Even if it’s a family coaster, I’m hyped
  6. From what I understand, GCI didn’t do the full retrack. I heard wof did the last quarter of the ride because it obviously was cheaper to do in house, which is why it’s probably still rough. I heard the return run up into the brakes was done in house. Don’t know if that’s true or not, but it would explain a lot.
  7. I visited the park today. Mamba was good, but Prowler was even better. I had a really good ride on Prowler in the back. In the past the back felt like you were riding on a gravel road and didn’t feel right, that wasn’t the case today. It felt very fast today and out of control in a great way. I experienced great floater airtime after the first drop and through the lift hill structure. The overgrown trees and brush really help the theming and feeling of a fast animal in pursuit running through a jungle. I didn’t staple myself in, and ride ops didn’t staple me in either when checking lap bars which was awesome ( both Prowler and Mamba). Not much change in the land clearing. Document online shows grading at 25 percent done. There was a decent crowd today. Mamba had a line out the station even with the ride reservations, but the ride ops were as good as they could have been for operating only one train. I got through pretty fast. I also noticed while waiting that Mamba had dispatched 2 trains in the time it took Patriot to dispatch 1, as you can spy the first drop of Patriot from the opposite side of the park in the Mamba station. Also seemed to be a lot of new supposedly first time riders. I know rides have been shut down more from pukers this year than I can remember in the past. Prowler and Mamba both had great ride ops today. Coasters restaurant was moving through a lot of people and had good service today. Overall a great day at the park.
  8. KC compass is being really goofy right now. I pulled this earlier today, but now when I search I’m getting 215,000 different plans which are throughout the city. It occasionally does stuff like this, or is down altogether.
  9. This is from the Peter Pumpkin Eater scare zone. Like PKIJizzman said they should really think about making it a haunt. It would easily be the longest haunt. Cover the area in fog and make it a werewolf forest. It definitely has the howling vibe
  10. Scott’s kitchen is great, I’m not a fan of the sauce, it’s heavy on vinegar, but the meat is smoked great. I agree with Peter Pumpkin eater. It’s a very cool scare zone that uses the old dinosaurs alive path and is heavily wooded. I think I saw the same skunk or maybe a family of skunks. The irony of the them running around in scare zones. I was in line for cornstalkers, and that little shit ran down a drain 10 feet from me. I told everyone to get quiet, I didn’t really want to be sprayed point blank. The haunts have improved a lot since my last haunt visit in 2018, with the exception being Zombie High, that haunt is still bad.
  11. ^ Copy that. I was wondering what was up. its amusing they are doing it by inches
  12. Oceans Mat racer slide will actually be tied with Hersheyparks mat racer slide at 486 feet in length. Not sure how they goofed on facts, but regardless I’m happy we are getting a great addition.
  13. Nice report guys. Hopefully next season they get the food preparation figured out. I personally would have hated to been there with kids expecting to eat at 5:15 and not having a bite til 7. I can’t remember what dessert we had, but it was really good.
  14. Not trying to change subject but it’s confirmed that Oceans will be getting something new for 2020. They are removing the diamond head water slides that launched with the park in 1982. Not sure what Oceans is getting yet. Probably something from KCK Schlitterbahn, hopefully the slide tower with the mat slide and the tube slides with good air time.
  15. Grand Carnivale!!! Loved it!! I wasn’t sure what it was going to be at first, but now I get it! It’s a little bit of Epcot with food from around the world, Disney parade with fireworks at the end. Small scale though. But Awesome!!! Dance party after the parade. Kids and I enjoyed it. Thankful that Worlds of fun was chosen to be a host park for it. I was impressed.
