  1. I mean I used to love the Wheelie so I'm glad they're bringing it back... I guess [emoji2369] Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  2. Can confirm those tips work great on Scorcher. I've ridden it many many times and actually enjoy it quite a lot, assuming I get a proper "squat" before the mechanism locks and I'm situated near the centerline. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  3. Made it to the park for the first time this year. Great day, beautiful weather and light crowds. In fact there was nobody there this morning, walk-ons everywhere I went, and only started picking up a bit in the afternoon. Ops were fine, a few things were closed, food service was as slow as ever -- I can't tell they changed anything there. Oh well. The highlight of the day, without a doubt....Pandemonium is fantastic! It was my first time on a Giant Discovery and I loved it! Can't wait to ride again! I dig the theming too, I just hope they keep going and build that area out. It needs more, but they got a great start. This is such a great addition to the park this year!
  4. Yeah this looks awesome! I think if the final ride is anything like the render then its going to be amazing and they did an awesome job shoehorning a lot of action and elements into a small space. Can't wait!
  5. Thanks for the sign pics on Cyclone. We were there Wednesday and those weren't there. It was just an empty station with a couple of "Something Big is Coming" banners hanging around.
  6. I know I'm asking for speculation, but do we know what sort of ride this should be when they're done? I'm pretty ignorant about most of this I guess. When RMC comes in to do one of these is it a complete rebuild or more of a refresh? In other words would you guys expect us to get something completely different out of this or just a better Cyclone?

  7. Ok so we know it's closing. Do we know what they're doing, for sure? Sent from my XT1575 using Tapatalk
  8. I agree with this with one possible exception -- the single rider setup on the new JL dark ride looks decent. It cuts out about half of the queue inside the building at least. Thanks, I thought so too, especially since it didn't open that way. I rode it last year. I guess nobody's got any inside scoop on what changed or why, but I feel like there's a story here. Nobody asked, and most of you may have already seen them with your own eyes, but here's a couple of pics of the markers I took last week.
  9. Yeah I don't dislike the cyclone either. Yeah it's pretty rough, but sometimes I like it rough. Wild coasters are fun, and that thing is wild. That said, I think it's probably lost a lot of it's appeal for the masses, which is Six Flags bread n butter. So yeah, I'd like to see them put some money into it but I hope it's not too tame.

  10. We went yesterday for the first time this year. Overall a great experience. Park was empty. Ops were very good all-around, but then its hard to really judge on a light day. Many rides were walk-on, or close to it. Foodservice was fast but characteristically unhappy and borderline-rude. We got food though, and it didn't take forever, so I call that a win. Weather was great. Overall a fantastic day at Six Flags. The new Metropolis section is beautiful, a much needed facelift to that part of the park. And the JL:BFM building looks great. Yesterday was our first time on one, and it was a lot of fun. The kids loved it. Unfortunately it was having some sort of minor technical difficulties all afternoon. We were turned away earlier in the day since it was down, but when we came back by it was running. There wasn't much of a line, it wasn't even outside the building, but even still we waited almost an hour due to small down-time delays occurring regularly. We stuck it out though and got to ride, and, best I could tell, it worked flawlessly while we were on it. I can see us riding that one often, especially with the kids, I just hope they get the new-ride gremlins worked out soon. Overall, a great day at the park. Hope to find time one day next week to get back. PS: When (and why) did they adjust the height limitations on the Superman Drop Tower? I rode it when it first opened, but yesterday I was turned away as being too tall. Sure enough, the signage now says 54" max height. This is now a very limited ride, only allowing riders between 42-54". Both my 11yr and 13yr old are too tall for it now, even though they rode last year. My 7-yr old had worked up the nerve to try that one this year and none of us were allowed to ride with her yesterday. She rode it anyway, and enjoyed it some, but was very nervous. I think she would've enjoyed it more had she not been alone on it.
  11. Us too Guy. My first time at the park and if it's open I'll be there! I called my hotel earlier just to confirm and they said come on up, so we're going! Sent from my XT1575 using Tapatalk
  12. So since the fires seem to be under control and Dollywood is reopening Friday, is anybody going this weekend? Sent from my XT1575 using Tapatalk
  13. Well I can't disagree with that, but I'm still not sure what everyone else is supposed to do about it. I'm 3 hours away; gotta get my info from somewhere...
  14. To be fair a lot of the "false information" you're referring to came from actual news outlets and reporters. I don't think its irresponsible to quote the news, and nobody who did so and inadvertently spread misinformation should feel bad about it. Not their fault. That aside, I can't begin to express how glad I am that the damage isn't as bad as reported. My family just loves that area and this whole event has been heartbreaking to watch unfold. So I for one am glad most of what I've heard in the past day may be wrong.
  15. This is all really good feedback. Thanks to you all. My kids are 3-12 so it's hard to find stuff that appeals to everyone, so I appreciate all the input. We're really looking forward to the trip. So anybody have feedback on the parade viewing? Some little-known gem of a spot for viewing? Sent from my XT1575 using Tapatalk
  16. Hey all, we're going to be in the Pigeon Forge area in about a week and plan to check out Dollywood. I've never been so I hoped to get some "insider" tips. We've got 4 kids, so I probably won't get to do the bigger coasters. That's too bad, but its not what the trip is about anyway. So what should someone traveling with a bunch of kids know about Dollywood? Any specific kids attractions that are must-do's? Any certain order/direction we should do things? Which shows should we consider? I hear the Christmas parade is awesome, but where/when should we gather/stand/camp to get to see it the best? Thanks all, I really appreciate it!
  17. I don't disagree with you, but Splashwater falls is still very popular though, isn't it? I mean that line always seems to be quite long on hot summer days. I couldn't see them getting rid of it when it's still a largish draw. Anybody been since sfog posted that teaser photo? Can you see the blue tarps from the public areas? I'd love to see more photos. Or maybe someone's adventurous enough to go and take a peek.. Sent from my XT1575 using Tapatalk
  18. It's only a bad idea because the park sits on the Chattahoochee flood plain. Otherwise i think it sounds awesome. Expensive, but awesome. Sent from my XT1575 using Tapatalk
  19. What do you guys mean, "snapping" the flyer? Sent from my XT1575 using Tapatalk
  20. I really wanted to go out today but it didn't work out. Looking forward to more first hand reports of the vr experience.
  21. I didn't take pics, but yes it had started. If you're familiar with Bugs Bunny world, the little pink Ferris wheel was gone and that area was fenced off with wood. Everything else was untouched yet though, best I could tell.
  22. Hey all, anybody been on father's day in the past? I know it's a "bring a friend" day and those can get busy, but is Six Flags really a popular father's day spot?
