  2. Sounds like you’re burned out from how much coaster stuff you did this year. Take a break and do other stuff, if you feel the need to come back to parks then go ahead and if you don’t then you don’t.
  3. Mr. Freeze is something else. I think the SFOT one is the superior of the two from my experience, but both of them rock. The best coaster I've ridden this month is hands down Fury 325.
  4. Recent trip that didn't include a TON of coasters, but definitely included some REALLY REALLY good ones. Bold is new, italics is stuff that used to be in there. 1. Fury 325 (Carowinds) 2. Millennium Force (Cedar Point) 3. New Texas Giant (Six Flags Over Texas) 4. Outlaw Run (Silver Dollar City) 5. Maverick (Cedar Point) 6. Twisted Cyclone (Six Flags Over Georgia) 7. Iron Rattler (Six Flags Fiesta Texas) 8. The Voyage (Holiday World) 9. Goliath (Six Flags Great America) 10. Time Traveler (Silver Dollar City) --- 11. Intimidator (Carowinds) 12. Raging Bull (Six Flags Great Americ
  5. Stopped at the park a little before closing last Saturday on the way home from a NC trip that involved a certain giga coaster (and some more important stuff, but a giga coaster too). Ended up only having time for one coaster, but I think I chose wisely. Twisted Cyclone (x1): I love RMC. This thing is hilariously fun, smooth, and comfortable with crazy airtime and other weird sensations that don't make total sense. On paper it looks short but it kinda just kept going with absolutely flawless pacing. No dead space at all. Great ride here.
  6. Spent last Saturday primarily at Carowinds since I was in the area. Sadly, Afterburn was closed all day (was really looking forward to it, but at least it wasn't Fury). Expected it to be pretty busy and was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't SUPER slammed (definitely nowhere near empty or even super great, I still skipped some rides like Flying Cobras and Nighthawk, but I never waited more than an hour for anything). Fury 325 (x3): This thing kicks every other coaster ever's A$$ up and down its 325 feet of height. The first drop is the best on any coaster I've been on by far and it absolu
  7. The Fury crew is otherworldly. They've just eaten through an entire set of switchbacks in like 15 minutes (full queue minus the extra far-end cattle pens). Too bad almost every other crew has kinda sucked. Better rides = better crews here, Afterburn has been closed all day, hoping it opens before we bail but I'm guessing it probably won't.
  8. Looking pretty cool so far. I'm interested to see how it turns out. Good to know, thanks.
  9. Might have a chance to spend Oct 12 at Carowinds. Not super interested in Scarowinds (and I kinda have to leave in the afternoon anyway). Are there any seasonal ride closures or the like that might affect the visit? From queue-times it looks like the park still operates fairly normally during its non-Haunt times in the fall. Any kind of coupon or discount advice is also greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
  10. I've gone from ops talking to kids instead of checking restraints to CP tier ops in the same day before. SFOT is weird.
  11. Yeah I've dealt with some really bad employees at SFOT before. Like, 5 minute dispatches combined with one train ops on NTaG, and not cleaning up obvious messes. I've also dealt with the best and worst in the same day, in 2016. The morning/afternoon was awful and when we came back in the evening it was like a completely different park for the better. I still love SFOT, it has the best heat management I've seen at maybe any non-water park ever.
  12. In my experience, the 3 bench trains generally have the middle and front rows as the smoothest (which one is smoother depends on which coaster). I only ever rode The Beast in the front while I was there so I'm not really sure, but I found it to be way smoother than I was expecting. Like, steel coaster smooth.
  13. First we complained that SV was running only one train, then when it started running two, we complained that it wasn't running three, and now that it's running three, we're complaining that it's running three?
