  1. How are the long are the lines for the coasters typically in late November / Ealry December?


    Trying to plan my first trip to the park and hit all the coasters in 1 full day along with Falcon's Fury


    Very manageable for the most part. You'll have no problem at all. By the way, keep an eye on the maintenance schedule when planning your trip. As far as coasters go you should be in good shape, but if you like water rides they'll both be closing at the same time this year from November 23 - Dec 23 which is a bit odd.


    Thanks for the help, Bill!


    And I guess it's a good thing that I'm not into water rides!

  2. It would be interesting for inexpensive Vekoma hypers to hit the market. B&M hypers are 20+mill now and I am sure Intamin isnt far behind.


    What makes you think a Vekoma hyper would be any less costly?


    Likely because historically most Vekoma coasters have been significantly cheaper in price than their counterparts by other manufacturers. An example could be, and we're talking strictly price rather than quality, the B&M invert vs the Vekoma SLC. Cheaper price on the SLC made them a more popular and feasible route for many parks than a B&M invert.


    I'm not exactly sure if that's the case with their hyper coasters but my guess would be that it is.

  3. Was at the park today

    My list goes:

    5. Terrible to the third power. (The name explains it all, won't ride it again, worse than other SLCs)

    4. Roller Skater. (The best kids coaster I've been on, better than Mean Streak)

    3. Thunder Run. (A fun woodie, but not very re-ridable)

    2. Storm Chaser. (A great coaster, through the corked roll is phenomenal, the rest just fun)

    1. Lightning Run. (Airtime+laterals)


    SC and LR are both great. SC has a big elements that are a ton of fun. Lightning Run comes at you with everything, and is very quick with a bunch of small hills that send you flying.

    I'll be at KK on Wednesday. What order would you say is best for getting on all 5 coasters, plus Deluge and Deep Water Dive?


    Would definitely recommend hitting LR first, followed by TR and then the waterpark attractions. However, pending that two trains are running, Storm Chaser should probably be the last thing you ride due to a complete lack of crowds. T3 and Roller Skater's lines don't seem to change much though, and this is coming from someone who visits the park quite frequently, so you could basically ride those two whenever you want.

  4. so its official the design has changed (not a big deal) pictures coming soon......


    Disappointing, but maybe it's true that they decided the ride will have lost too much speed by that point. I wouldn't want them to build an element if they didn't think it would deliver.



    the new element is very impressive I will say.


    Do you happen to know what the element is or have pictures to share?


    Would love to see!

  5. ^And a good ride to get your "outward banked turn" fix if you're desperate!


    How high does an RMC train sit on their tracks?! Though the ride doesn't cross over itself a lot, there are some low-clearance sections among it that could provide some serious head-chopper effects; unless they plan to alter the supports once more before finalizing it?


    From all that I've noticed, their trains stay very low to the track, and lower than that of some other manufacturers it seems.


    If I were to guess I would say that the supports will remain the same and will give some CRAZY head-choppers!!
