  1. The funny thing is that while you're joking you're still overestimating the wait times by a full 2 trains. I've been going to Dorney since I was a kid (mostly on weekends) and have never seen a 2 train wait for Hydra in my life. The Hydra queue is almost always empty. Even on weekends, the line is never past the staircase. However, I was there on a Sunday this year and somehow the line was going down the first switchback. Now that's something you don't see every day!
  2. Looks like two solid additions for the Boardwalk! I haven't spent any time over there before, but I might consider going to the water park with the new water coaster. Watched the announcement stream off of Hersheypark's FB page and immediately after the announcement several people began to complain that the new water coaster is "not a real rollercoaster". That's enthusiasts for you I guess.
  3. What if Dorney is the first "workout amusement park"? Think about it: - Giant hills to walk up and down - Magnetic gates that must be pushed open (as opposed to air gates) - Tons of empty switchbacks to run up and down - No-reride policy (you have to walk back around to the front and walk through the queue to reride)
  4. That gave me an idea! What if Hersheypark held a Skyrush ERT event at night where they run the lift at full speed? That'd be awesome!
  5. Skyrush does seem to slow down at the top more than it did last year. That being said, the ride is still amazing.
  6. Does anyone have recommendations for food inside the park? Looking for a good place to have lunch during an upcoming visit without leaving the park.
  7. That's really strange, but thanks for reinforcing my decision to stay away from coaster enthusiast events.
  8. According to this data, RMC Hurler should be around 111 feet, as long as the ground length of the lift remains the same.
  9. I didn't get to ride the smallest tower, but it appears to be an average Double Shot. Compared to Power Tower at Cedar Point, the other two are quite intense. Rode all 3 last week. The larger two provide a fun ride experience, with Reese's feeling more intense. Kisses tower felt like a tame version of Reese's, so I don't see the point in building it as I don't think many will ride that over the other two if they're afraid of heights. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk And to think a few months ago we thought Reese's was going to be the pointless one! I think it fits nicely with the "Choose your thrill" theme that they're going for. The Hershey kisses tower provides a tamer ride along with the shorter height, the Reese's one is taller with a stronger launch, and the Hershey tower is taller still with the added drop and height.
  10. That would be nice, but they've been hyping next year's addition too much. It's gotta be a coaster. Personally, I think a spinning coaster would compliment their lineup very well. It's a fun family coaster that many people will enjoy. This will be a great addition to the coaster they received last year.
  11. ^ With all that space, they have enough room to put in a T-Rex coaster. Heck, they could possibly cram a Raptor in Boomerang's old spot alone. Besides, if a T-Rex or Raptor RMC is what Knott's is getting next year, I'm 100% sure they've already found a way to fit it in.
  12. I've read this question several times and still have no idea what you're trying to say. I'm sure that if you wrote in his native language, he would not understand you either. This is true. I'm not familiar with the Italian language, and I'm sure if I tried to speak it, it would come off as a garbled mess. My apologies, Livai
  13. Sad to see the flume go. It was one of the few good rides at La Ronde, so this leaves Le Batman: The Ride, La Goliath, and maybe the new La Frisbee. I've read this question several times and still have no idea what you're trying to say.
  14. No, we live in a shed and eat Pork N Beans out of the trash.

  16. Never heard of this but just found this POV. Holy hell. Eesh. Those turns look really wonky, especially for something made in 2014. This doesn't look like much fun. Perhaps it was dismantled for the better.
  17. It still baffles me how a park's operations can be so bad. How does it take 15 minutes to load a single 8-person train? What do they do during that time?
  18. This ride looks awesome! If it rides as well as it looks, then it'll be great. Combined with the low price tag, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw a few of these pop up elsewhere in the world.
  19. Has the seating issue on Skyrush been fixed? Last year, several seats were closed off.
  20. I had this idea the other day on this same topic. If you're in line for a ride and the person in front of/behind you is showing the telltale signs of being an enthusiast (acts like he knows everything, smells bad, etc.) then you start saying and asking him "GP" things in an attempt to piss him off. This trick works well on most rides, but it works especially well on El Toro since it's an enthusiast magnet. Also, Six Flags policy says you can't bring your phone in line anymore, so it's a good way to keep from getting bored in line. Petty? Definitely, but it sounds like a lot of fun if you find the right person.
  21. I have a few Dorney pics. I didn't get one of Dodgem or Kaleidoscope operating (since it's closed) but I'll take those on my next visit in a couple weeks. Sign for Kaleidoscope Kaleidoscope is not operating atm Sign for Dodgems
  22. Could you link your source on the Knott's prediction? I doubt Worlds of Fun is getting a coaster next year since they just got a new entrance and a couple new rides, but I wouldn't be surprised if they got one in the next three years.
  23. There's a very good chance that this is true. In the conference call they specifically said that one of the coaster types would be brand new and a chicken and biscuit coaster would definitely fit the bill. It's great to see Cedar Fair on the cutting edge of innovation. I'm also happy they seem to partnering with Bojangles'. While it's certainty not my favorite southern chicken restaurant, this partnership would allow the coaster to be open on Sundays and that's a major win in my book. Would the MCBR include a drive-thru window where you can buy chicken? If so, I'm sold.
