  1. I don’t remember if I mentioned this coaster before in this thread, but it needs to be mentioned again anyway. The Bat/Top Gun is easily a top-three coaster for me at Kings Island. That thing feels so fast, the location/scenery is awesome, and it was really forceful. I’d actually choose the Bat over some B&M or Intamin inverts.

     

    I also have to mention Gale Force. Since the re-tracking, it’s been running smoother, faster, and it cycles around twice now. It has some serious airtime, and it’s the best steel coaster in NJ for me.

  2. I got a chance to ride Squadron 33 today. I think it’s a worthy replacement for Tropical Storm. When you get it flipping (which is pretty easy), it feels like a Power Surge on crack. When you’re not flipping it feels like a drunk enterprise. Since the whole ride tilts, it’s a ton of fun either way.

     

    I also got a ride on Gale Force, and it was running way better than it did two years ago. It was giving El Toro/Skyrush-strength airtime, and it WENT AROUND TWICE!

     

    I also got two rides on Wild Waves, and it had strong pops of airtime in the front, and milder, more sustained air in the back.

  3. I too love Plymouth Rock Cafe. For those who were at Holiwood Nights, is the fried chicken they gave us on Saturday's dinner the same as what is sold at Plymouth Rock Cafe? I thought about trying the fried chicken there, but I couldn't go against the tried and true turkey.

    I had both fried chickens, and I think it’s the same stuff, except the dinner was probably made a while before it was served. The chicken from dinner was fine, but the Plymouth Rock chicken I had was excellent and way more juicy.

  4. Some thoughts on Holiday World/Holiwood Nights:

     

    It was incredible. One of the best experiences I’ve had at a park. Voyage was insane, and as smooth as a wooden coaster with those kinds of forces can be. I was also shocked by how amazing Legend was. On the second night of ERT, I intended for Voyage to be my last ride of the event, around 11:30. Walking back up the hill towards the front gate of the park, I decided to stop at Legend one last time. Even after experiencing what is arguably the best coaster on earth in the best condition possible, the Legend still held up and didn’t feel weak in comparison. It beats Boulder Dash as my favorite CCI.

     

    I also LOVED the water coasters. Mammoth was stupid amounts of fun, and Wildebeest had Jack Rabbit-style airtime during the drops into the tunnels/sheds. Both rides induced endless amounts of laughter from me and my group.

     

    Even though Raven was the fourth or fifth best attraction in the park for me, it would easily make the top three for any other park. Thunderbird was also a great winged coaster, and I think I like it slightly more than Gatekeeper.

     

    Most of the food I had at the park was solid, especially at Plymouth Rock Cafe.

  5. A few weeks ago I saw Turnstile, Touché Amore, Culture Abuse, and Razorbumps at the TLA. It was one of the best shows I’ve ever been to. Turnstile played with tons of energy and the crowd was awesome. People were stage diving over the barrier. The lineup of bands had a ton of variety. Razorbumps is a garage punk-style band, Culture Abuse is pop punk, Touché Amore is a very emotional post hardcore band, and Turnstile is like an insane combination of Rage Against The Machine, Nirvana, and Bad Brains fused with modern hardcore and pop.

     

    The next day I saw Power Trip with Sheer Mag, Fury, and Red Death at Union Transfer. Power Trip was excellent and anyone who likes crossover thrash should listen to them. Sheer Mag is basically a classic rock band in modern times. They were great, and a really fun band to see live. Fury is an awesome hardcore punk band that’s been getting some hype over the past year, and Red Death is also a crossover thrash type band.

     

    This June I’m seeing Parquet Courts, (which I can’t wait for since their new album is awesome), then King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard soon after that (which is one of the absolute GREATEST live bands around).
