  1. I rode Iron Gwazi for my first time 11/14, it was absolutely fantastic after a couple okay rides in the morning. The whole warming up thing is no joke. 2nd fav RMC after Lightning Rod, and Lightning Rod is probably only ahead because I have a bias for launches. It was great to be back in the park after nearly 6 years.
  2. I'm in the middle of isolation... have not been outside since Thursday probably cold though... hate winter. No snow at the moment though, that's a win.
  3. I'm the lightest I've been in 2.5 months, even after my vacation! Trending in the right direction. Nobody go too crazy for Thanksgiving!
  4. If that is true, that is amazing. I visited for my first ever time this season (opening weekend). Cornball was getting work done so I don't have the credit. Hoosier was incredibly bland with a couple rough spots. I'd love to see what GG can do!
  5. Went to the park yesterday, and I have to say, the park was in pretty good shape. I'd say that was the best Fright Fest I have seen there, but there was one part of the event that was disappointing. The good: one of the biggest improvements, food. Love or hate him, Selim is overhauling food and my eye test is extremely impressed. Years past, on a slammed Saturday fright fest, I would wait 60-90 minutes for food. For dinner yesterday I waited in one of the longest lines, and it was still only ~25 mins. Fries were hot and crispy. Most locations were open too. Bathrooms were in the best shape I've seen them. They have always been relatively clean, but in years past the water has always been freezing. I was able to find warmer water more often than not. Fright Fest decorations were great. The most I have actually seen, actually. More lights, more fog, I thought the park looked great. The not so good: Scareactor distribution. Draw a line through the park, from front entrance to X-Flight. I only saw 2 scareactors on the west half (Southwest Territory, Demon). I was absolutely shocked. There has always been at least one, if not multiple, scareactors lurking by the overpass for the train in between Viper and the small games straight. This has always been one of my favorite places to walk and there was nobody there. The walk between JLBFM and BB is always a great one too, and when we walked through there, there were no scareactors. We finished walking through, and there was one scareactor talking to security. One scareactor for that stretch?? Extremely disappointing. Meanwhile, the east half of the park was appropriately staffed and felt normal. But then at 10:30 we were walking by carousel and all the scareactors were heading back (wherever they go). The last half hour had no scareactors, at least when we walked from carousel to Goliath. That's really upsetting too. Also, what's the point of a dueling coaster if you can't have both sides open on a fright fest Saturday? Red is surely done for the year, there's one train transferred off and the other train is missing. There's decorations in the red side operating booth. If one side can only be open, can it at least be red instead of blue?
  6. Huge fantasy football guy... across 3 leagues last year and I got 1st, 1st and 4th going 33-8. this year is going okay, I am currently 8-4 across 3 leagues
  7. No picture, but today I had a burger STUFFED with bacon. Never heard or seen it before. It was okay.
  8. Still stagnant on my end, but just moved back home so hoping to have better influences here!
  9. Went to the park for my first ever time about a month ago. It was good! Was not expecting the hills. Got on everything within 90 mins, plus 2 rerides on Steel Force and Hydra each. Unfortunately, Talon was closed. I was on a time crunch and was only at the park for 3 hours as I had to drive back to CP. More reason to go back someday!
  10. Not sure if it’s been mentioned on this forum (too lazy to check) but there was a news article a few months back that said Waldameer was going to invest “over $50m within the next 10 years”. To me that is a hefty investment for themselves, and I’m all for it. The water coaster aligns with that article.
  11. Glad to see a hefty investment going in! I visited the park early July. I thought Ravine Flyer II was running great last year...... wow, it is absolutely fantastic this year.
  12. Really Really - Kevin Gates Getting ready for his concert!
  13. I've been doing a little better, finally dropping some weight. Ready to hit September hard, I have an action plan ready to go! How is everyone else??
  14. Went to the park Wednesday and it was a great time. I got back to back zen rides on Kentucky Flyer and one zen ride on T3, park was pretty dead besides waterpark and Lightning Run. LR had a long line for a few hours after open, but eventually it was down to just a station wait. Unfortunately it broke down after I got one station wait ride. Noticed a lot of closed rides, even one that said it's only open Saturday and Sundays.
  15. Went to the park for most of the day Wednesday and had a great time. Legend was posted to open late, once it did it was one train. But man its running great.
