  1. LMAO! Can you imagine someone coming to this site for the first time and reading that? ROFL! By the way, nice report.
  2. Check out the movie "Rollercoaster". There are plenty of others that peeps will surely list.
  3. Robb, I'm curious as to why you're surprised by people having found the site via google? It would seem to me that google would be the most likely way that people would find it. Or is there something I'm missing? No disrespect intended, I'm just genuinely curious as to why you'd be surprised. In any event, I'm certainly glad to have found the site.

  4. Although I didn't actually count heads, I do remember noticing that it seemed there were A LOT of people operating, assisting, etc. on California Screamin' during our visit last summer. If I had to guess, I'd say that there were at least a dozen people. I don't remember noticing so many on previous trips.
  5. He may be able to ride the "White water safari" river rapids ride and the "Monsoon Falls" splashing boat ride. I'd guess he could go in the "Stargate 3000" theatre deal, although he may have to sit in a stationary seat if the seat belt on one of the moving chairs isn't big enough. They also have a spinning "tea cup" ride that's got a Monkey theme to it. The door that opens up to get into the seating area isn't real wide, but he may fit. Despite the fact that he'll definitely be very limited as to what he can ride, there will still be plenty for him to do and see at the park. There are
  6. The old "Greased Lightning" shuttle loop from PGA was stored in the parking lot of SFMW the last time I was there a month or so ago. Maybe that will go in Zonga's old spot? Just a thought.
  7. This particular park really won't be much of a loss. It definitely leaned toward the ghetto side of things. The place was run down, had grassy areas that would get muddy from water splashed up by the rides, had grass and mud floating in the lazy river and wave pool, etc, etc.. All of that is in addition to the crappy location, funky parking and access situation and a more, shall we say, "inner city" type clientel. Sunsplash, just up the freeway about 20 minutes in Roseville, puts Water World to shame and I believe Water World's closing clearly reflects that. I won't miss Water World a bit
  8. I was looking for some info on Bonfante Gardens theme park and found a video of a TPR trip to the park on this site. The forum was up and running a while after that, so I joined. I've picked up quite a bit about coasters and parks from the site. I think this site is a great resource for anyone planning a trip to a park. Thanks Robb and Elissa, and to the many other members that have shared their experience and/or answered questions for me. Billy "I got lucky with google" Hill
  9. The same super hero trio pictured in the original post were walking around SFMW last weekend. Our Wonder Woman had WAY too much junk in her trunk.
  10. Well, "Survivor, the Ride" was carrying passengers at PGA today! Here's my review of the ride, with pics: http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=23864
  11. I rode it today. It's really pretty tame compared to what I thought it would feel like. I liked it though. Even my wife, who ordinarily doesn't care for spinning rides very much at all, liked it. And she liked it a lot! Probably more than I did. My kids, ages 14, 11 and 10, all really liked it too. Riding it is an odd sensation for sure. I kind of expected it to be similar to Tasmanian Devil at SFMW, and it is, but then again, it isn't... It's got more a "floating" feeling to it. That particular feeling is actually pretty hard to describe. This is really a ride that you have to expe
  12. Are "Technical Rehersals" anything like a soft opening, or is it the kind of deal where the ride is simply tested without riders? (Please forgive my ignorance)
  13. My daughter and I took a "daddy and his girl" trip to SFMW last weekend. (My wife and the boys supposedly had better things to do. Whatever... Their loss!) We rode the "mighty" (kidding on the mighty part) Cobra! on our way to Medusa. Ok, ok... Give me a break! There was like no one in line! (Yeah, that's a good excuse...) Besides, we didn't really think about it at the time as Cobra being our official "first coaster" of the season, but there it is! Maybe I should get some T-shirts printed up that say, "Wusses R Us!" Anyhow, once we did get to Medusa, we found what looked to
  14. PGA this Saturday with the whole famn damily. I just hope the rain does actually taper off in the mid-morning like the weather forecasts say. I also hope that just maybe they have that "survivor" deal running, but I'm not holding my breath. As long as I can get my Top Gun fix, I'll be happy. I got my Medusa fix last weekend.
