  1. thanks for the info, my last cold weather coaster trip was 2019 at dollywood so I'm all good riding in freezing temps, just wanted to make sure stuff would be running before i buy their terribly overpriced ticket for Thursday night lol
  2. going to be in town and decided to hit up lagoon Thursday night and Friday but getting a bit worried about the cold weather. Anyone know when they stop running the coasters? is it 42 degrees like other parks? I assume most of Friday will be fine as it says high in the 50s, but still don't want to fly from ohio and get shut down! Friday night looks really cold
  3. Don’t hate me if I’m wrong, but the last few fridays and sundays(not Labor Day weekend, I was out of town so not sure ) have been great for lines, people are in school or it seems like they are waiting for haunt to start and not coming. Saturdays I am not sure about.
  4. Haha I had plans to go to Texas and California next year which is why I asked. They will be ‘first time last time’ rides most likely which is unfortunate because I see this stupid cheap single rail model popping up everywhere in the near future and I am thinking I won’t be able to enjoy them at all (Jersey devil was this way for me)
  5. anyone else in pain on Jersey devil? I’m tall, I’m fatter, but fit on every other coaster model just fine. Rode Jersey devil yesterday for the first time, and the way you have to sit, chicken legged or whatever with your feet 4 feet apart and your knees bending in put so much pressure on the joint / ligaments below my knees it was the worst pain ever and swear something was going to snap in my leg I tried sitting various ways and thought I figured it out until the ops make you put feet flat on the black section of the car and not the red angled part of the car that goes over the track So my question is: anyone else with this knee pain? Will losing weight did this (always working on it), or is this due to just being taller at 6’3? Or do I just have weak knee/leg ligaments and joints?
  6. anyone know if I buy the platinum pass at sesame place instead of a normal BGW platinum membership if their 50% discount on magic queue at sesame also gets 50% off quick queue at bgw and bgt?
  7. ah yes the intamin hate, but hey its not like thunderbird, gatekeeper, wild eagle had similar problems this year, INTAMIN BAD
  8. This looks like an amazingly fun trip! but I would highly recommend hitting up Holiday World July 24 or July 31 for night ride on voyage (closes 10 pm), and/or hitting up silver dollar city July 31 or August 7 for night rides on time traveler and outlaw run (closes midnight) if you can reverse the order somewhat or something (start in Chicago?). All are amazing night rides and VERY good in the dark. If you can't do it no problem at all there, just thought I'd throw that info in on when they close later than normal for a few weekends.
  9. The most recent track I'm looking at (released at noon eastern) shows it off the coast of Florida on Monday, with the potential track area barely in Georgia. I think you should be fine. Depending on how much lead time you need to adjust plans, keep up-to-date and be ready to adjust up to your deadline. If you're willing to drive to Dollywood on Sunday, why don't you instead swap SFOG and Carowinds (SFOG on Saturday, Carowinds on Sunday)? I like this idea, as carowinds will probably be less likely impacted on Sunday. Guess I’ll cancel my hotels and see what the model is predicting when we take off Friday!
  10. If you all were gamblers, would you bet on six flags being open / rides running on Sunday based on hurricane dorians path? We’re flying into Atlanta on Friday afternoon and planned carowinds for Saturday and sfog for Sunday, fly out Monday, but we can detour to Dollywood Sunday instead, decisions decisions... stupid Mother Nature
  11. Thanks for the advise but I do have a question. You’re saying they open the park / twisted cyclone 30 minutes early? Do you need a special membership or anything to get in early?? I have the basic gold season pass from six flags great America and I’m not sure if my friends will have a good pass or not.
  12. another flash pass question (sorry!) Is Flash pass worth it at six flags over Georgia on Sunday 9/2 (labor day weekend?) I would normally buy it no thought at all since I'm traveling from Cleveland (carowinds + SFoG trip), but there are several rides that say "one time only" on their site, even with the most expensive platinum option, is this true, or does that "one time" apply to the regular / gold options? Batman, dare devil dive, and twisted cyclone one time only... at that point not sure if the pass is worth it. thoughts? thanks
  13. Can any kind passholder of six flags great America provide me with the code that was emailed yesterday for the presale of 2020 passes? Apparently it went out yesterday and I would love to buy a pass before I go to the park this Sunday. Thanks!
  14. While lightning rod is on the schedule this year, isn’t wildwood grove all family rides for the Saturday ERT? I think I’m gonna pass on the event and just make a weekend trip in October or November for more night rides on all the coasters.
  15. I've never been to Dollywood and I 100% plan on fixing that this year. Anyone think lightning rod will be part of thrills in the hills ert this year (I think has never been so far)? I want to get night rides, so its either go to the event if its on the ERT schedule or plan my trip for october/november when its darker earlier.
  16. Really pains me to read some of the responses here to firehawk, why would you want any coaster removed when they have the space to keep it AND build something new? I like firehawk, I like vortex, and they need to keep both. Removing a coaster is never good when there is so much space available that there is no need. KI isn’t running out of room like CP so keep them all and keep adding imo. In fact, I’d take firehawk over any B&M forceless flyer any day of the week. Will be funny if they tear it down to build a b&m flyer instead of a giga you’re all praying for
  17. Again, years ago... It was nothing like that just this past year! Hotels deserve forgiveness too! Especially when they're as cheap, and offer as many amenities as this one does! same here, I have stayed at that super 8 probably 8-10 times since 2015 and never had any issue with bugs or dirt. sure the pictures don't lie, but its just a cheap no frills hotel. can definitely do better if you want to spend more. the hotel I WOULD not recommend, is the Microtel. The walls are paper thin and I"ve heard hookers having sex multiple times lol. Even when not kept up late by raunchy sex, the families with kids would wake me up early morning. (i knew they were hookers because you could hear the knocks on their doors follow by sex). walls so thin never again!
  18. late to the party but 100% knoebels and hershey park, about an hour away from eachother, 2 great top tier parks. if you can't or don't want to do hersheys, do knoebels + dorney. Renegade is awesome but knoebels is just a great park and phoenix is amazing, especially at night
  19. Hi all, making my first trip ever out to great America this weekend and just wondering if batman the ride has any rows with longer seat belts like great bear, raptor, etc in row 4. If not it's gonna be a tight fit but I think I'll make it lol Thanks
  20. Certain rides are closed on Friday. Closed coasters include corkscrew, mine ride, rougarou, and Gemini. As for flats, some of those close as well but I don't have a list, I'm sure it's on the CP site somewhere
  21. Thanks for the feedback guys, gonna make it out there the 15th and hope it's pretty dark, either way it will be fun!
  22. Hi All, thanks for answering my previous dumb questions! I do have another sadly... what time does it get dark at holiday world these days? I'm sitting here in Cleveland and there is plenty of light left at 7:30 EST. I really want too ride the voyage in the dark to compare it to a beast night ride (my favorite coaster at night), and have a trip scheduled for October 15th. If its not dark, I may go to a different park as I've already been to Holiday world earlier this year (also didn't get to ride voyage at night then). I love the voyage during the day, but NEED to ride it in the dark Anyone who is local that can comment on when its dark or if it will be dark by 8 pm central time on October 15th? I'm stupid with time zones so not sure if it gets darker there an hour earlier, plus Indiana is crazy with most on EST anyway! thanks again for helping a lurker / newperson
  23. and then you can't walk the next day due to your thigh's being bruised and bloodied skyrush hurt me bad lol. i marathoned it and the next day my thighs hurt so bad on a big trip to six flags great adventure. i'm weak, old, and frail
