  1. I was wondering when does Cedar Point normally start ride testing? Will there be any testing start to take place in the next few weeks?
  2. On twitter they got new renovated restrooms by the front gate and north star. Would anyone know if the restrooms by super cat and by the monster got renovated during the off season? Also has there been any ride testing starting to take place and will the park be ready to open with staffing to?
  3. I drove by this week and I didn’t see T. rex from the highway it looks like it was removed. Did any more rest rooms get remodeled during the off season and was there any work on High Roller far as re painting or re tracking? Also anyone going to season pass preview day you have to use your season pass to register this year I don’t remember having to register for season pass preview day and spaces are limited.
  4. Can’t GCI run there coasters at 30 degrees? Even if Renegade ran only one train would be nice I would think they could run few rides like scrambler, super cat, northern lights, antique autos could definitely run, tilter maybe Steel Venom. Also what’s the temperature to keep North Star open?
  5. I’m making plans to go to Carowinds for the first time in July 15-17. Right now I’m planning to stay at the new SpringHill Suites by Marriott at Carowinds for two nights. Has anyone stayed at the new hotel yet? I’m curious I book the room through Orbitz was $389 for two nights and I was wondering is it worth it? Also is the hotel within walking distance to the park? When I’m done with Carowinds on Friday night I’m driving straight ten hours north to Cedar Point staying then staying at Breakers for 3 nights.
  6. I’m planning to go to Universal Islands of Adventure, Sea Word Orlando, Fun Spot, and Busch Gardens Tampa in April for a week for my 40th birthday. Mapquest says Six Flags Over Georgia is a 6 hour drive from Orlando. I’m planning to visit the park for the first time is it open in April during the week if I wanted to add a extra day to drive up to Six Flags Over Georgia and are the crowds light during the week? I’m planning to go to Orlando April 11th through the 17th.
  7. Here’s what the traffic looked like at 7:30 pm this evening coming from hwy 169 close to the bridge and traffic coming from west bound past the rail road tracks at the stop light. I have been coming to Valleyfair for years I would say this has to be the busiest night I’ve seen in a while other then adult night. The main lot was near capacity when I got there at 6:30 pm and when I left around 7:30 pm the field by the Valleyfair dorms was almost full. Would anyone know what’s going on with the field at the end of the main lot by the river it’s not suitable for parking any more? I’m also curious
  8. I stopped by Valleyfair on the way to work this evening got there around 6:30pm the main lot was near capacity. It took me ten minutes through tolls and ten minutes through security and when I went up to guest services to get my fast lane it took five minutes. Once I got in the park it was a mad house. Everything had a hour wait plus food buildings and lines with food trucks. I did ride North Star x1, Renegade x3 with Mike. When I headed out there were lines of traffic all the way to 169 bridge and to hwy82 past Excalibur. The field by the dorms at 7:45 pm was near capacity. I’d say this is on
  9. I did a walk through the Dino area there hasn't been any signs of land clearing in that area no signs of any type of construction going on as of yet unless something has changed.
  10. I'm planning to visit Cedar Point in a week. I'm staying at Hotel Breakers for 4 nights. Do you get discounts on fast lane plus for platinum pass holders?
  11. I'm also making my very first trip to Dollywood next week. I'm leaving Valleyfair this Sunday at 1:00 am driving 15 hours overnight will work out great because I should arrive at the hotel around check in time 2:00 pm stay overnight sleep then do Dollywood on Tuesday all day. I was also wondering I'm planning to visit Dollywood on a Tuesday for one full day is the Time Saver also worth the extra money or should I wait till I get to the park? How is Dollywood's fast lane do they move pretty quick? And with the weather there forecasting Thunderstorms every day that week. Dollywood is the first s
  12. I have also been to the park almost every single day this year so far. One of the areas they could expand is the midway games area. The games area is almost dead every time I've visit the park. They could take out the left side of the midway games and put a nice size RMC RailBlazer there. Rip Tide section of the park and move the lift hill down more by bumper cars and perhaps run the track up towards the front of the park by the midway stage area or rap it around The Wave. You have plenty of space there on the Rip Tide side of the games area for a new coaster even a B&M could fit there to.
  13. Earlier in the year Excalibur and Thunder Canyon opened at 11am I believe towards the end of June I noticed they started to closed two hours early I heard from a Renegade team lead it had to do with cutting back on budget. Now the back of the park is open noon till roughly 8pm closes two hours early every day now I don’t think it has to do with empty trains on Excalibur because I’ve also seen Renegade running two trains almost empty sometimes more so has to do with budget.
  14. I’m planning to go to Carowinds for the first time ever on July 15-18. I’m sure this gets ask a lot but I’m wondering what the crowds are like on a Tuesday Wednesday Thursday? One of the three days I’m there I’m planning to do the water park in the morning then dry park in the evening also was wondering is fast lane plus needed for the water park and the three days I’m going? Also any good hotels to stay close to Carowinds? Currently I’m planning to stay at Sleep Inn on Lakemont Boulevard 0.5 miles from Carowinds for two nights was $156.00. I’m driving close to 18 hours. I’m going for Fury 325
  15. I went to Worlds of Fun for the day. I left Valleyfair on Tuesday this week at 11am for a day trip. It was a nice drive on 35W south. I got to Worlds of Fun about 6:15pm check in the motel 6. I stayed at the Motel 6 Kansas City North in Randolph guess you get what you pay for short drive from WOF next year I’m going to stay at Worlds of Fun Village on sight. Once I check in I went to the park for a few hours in the evening light crowds. My first ride was on Patriot nice quite B&M not as forceful but definitely was the highlight of the trip next went over to Timber Wolf nice first drop kind
