  1. The previous train design is better, but the new one keeps the spirit of it in a minimal way. Maybe it makes for better aerodynamics or some such thing. I rode Lightning Rod twice in the dead of night November last year...I have to say that there was no perceptible 'pothole' during either ride...just my boyfriend's screams of terror during the first ride. He sat out for the second ride, proclaiming angrily 'THAT WAS TOO FAST.'
  2. ^Awesome. Definitely will show up on a weekday. Has anyone done the SkyZip experience? Wondering about how long that takes. It seems there's no better place to zipline than above Dollywood, but I don't want to take too much time away from rides.
  3. Hey all, looking to visit Dollywood for the first time this November, probably Mon the 27th. Any tips or tricks from vets? I'm wondering if that's too close to Thanksgiving weekend and the park will still be swamped. Is this a park that can reasonably be done in one day?
  4. This looks pretty good, but I am of the mindset that a full-scale B&M dive coaster would have made a much larger splash (har har), and served more guests per hour. I'm sure Cedar Fair/KBF are spending less this way, regardless, and maybe they'll even end up with a better coaster. I haven't been on an Infinity yet, but something like Monster *looks* a lot more intriguing to me.
  5. Mean Streak is looking truly phenomenal. Thanks for the coverage, and I look forward to more. Here's my $0.02 about what we're looking at on that drop.... #MSPaintRealness Quick and dirty lift/drop projection.
  6. I honestly would have preferred a fresh coat of paint on Batman over Joker.
  7. The article comes as across as being written by an enthusiast who just assumes it's 2018 at this point...I see no receipts. I'm not one to dismiss possibility, but at this point it seems like Cedar Point/Fair might have wanted a LOT of shakedown time for their massive new RMC.
  8. ^Can't argue that one. The placement of the new flats as well as Joker is excellent for visibility entering the park. Lighting packages have been great as well.
  9. ^No surprise there. Pretty damned diminutive footprint on these things. I honestly don't quite equate these free spins to a full coaster experience, closer to a big flat that I don't much care to ride. Thank goodness for the RMC Giant, because it's been a piss poor run of new coasters for a park of this caliber since Titan.
  10. RMC will deliver an awesome coaster regardless, I just don't want to see another wooden structure with bright red steel. RMC have so blurred the line between wood and steel that classification hardly matters - but still, there is a perceptible difference between Outlaw Run and NTAG now that both are a few years old. I-box is probably the better call from a maintenance standpoint, though.
  11. It would be nice to see Mean Streak retain its classification as wooden. I've speculated a full topper track conversion for some time...and it does appear the pieces pictured are the gauge of transfer track...so I'll hold out hope. Whether I-box of topper track, the thing that will irk me the most is if there's bright red slats of steel slapped on top.
  12. ^This, exactly. Carowinds Vortex murders CGA Vortex. Patriot will be unremarkable but improve the park lineup enough that its cost is more justifiable.
  13. Coco Montrese reaction image on TPR? My worlds are colliding... #TeamIntamin
