  1. I'm thinking that everybody is now on the tasks where everybody gets the cards for citizens doing things (the dining, shopping, etc). I know I've gotten a lot more cards the last few days.
  2. Anybody else having trouble with the "Place the Helter Shelter" quest? Mine is completed but it's showing not completed yet. This sure is a buggy update.
  3. I bought 20 Gold Spins and got my 10 house decorations and a few other things (like snowmen and the Helter Shelter). Also 1,000 cash is one of the "prizes". Whatever. There are some good prizes and it probably makes more sense to spin for the snowmen decorations vs buying them just using donuts.
  4. Interesting, Fellowship is my favorite of the LOTR trilogy. I felt that ROTK was actually the weakest of the 3.
  5. The difference is, when KC was winning all their games they were playing against mediocre (at best) teams. Seattle has actually beaten some really good teams ... and they've won some road games (obviously). They are going to be tough to beat for sure. I'm still hoping my 49ers can beat them on Sunday (not because I hold out any hope for getting home field or the division but for the confidence). Either New Orleans or SF is going to have to go in and play Seattle in the NFC Championship game (and maybe even the Divisional Round as well). The way the season is shaping up SEA is likely going to have to play both of those teams to get to the Super Bowl.
  6. There are no buildings taller than 2 stories in my city so there really isn't a skyline of buildings ... but there is this. Also, if you turn to the right about 90 degrees you'd see the ocean about 5 miles in the distance.
  7. Also saw Catching Fire opening weekend. I thought it was great. I've read the books but it's been awhile so while I know what happens in the 3rd book I don't remember EVERYTHING. From what I remember of Catching Fire though the movie was pretty faithful to the book. As far as The Hobbit is concerned, I'm a huge fan of the book. I've probably read it 25-30 times in my lifetime (the last being last year). I did like the first movie, the "Riddles in the Dark" scene was absolutely perfect, probably the most faithful chapter adaptation in any of the Hobbit/LOTR movies. I know there is a lot of controversy about the 3 movies and especially with this one, but all I've heard so far from people who have seen it say it's REALLY good. I'll find out early next Friday morning.
  8. No. When Psyclone opened it was probably one of my favorite rides in the park. Oddly, even when it was actually good it never had a line.
  9. ^ Thanks for the warning. Will make sure I don't put anybody on too long of a task.
  10. ^ I'd even say make him and Jansen both closers and have them switch off the set-up/closer role throughout the season.
  11. It also doesn't help that Full Throttle has the smallest station ever. Maybe they'll take some time in the offseason to finally finish the station and expand the unload side a bit? They could also speed up dispatch times if they implemented a STRICT locker policy. I'd imagine that even with the seat belts dispatches would go down :45 - 1:00 without all the bags and crap. I saw KK use them in 2005 (opening year). Didn't see it last year when we were back there. People also seem to forger that X2 also has separate load/unload stations that are never used.
  12. Most Likely Grinchmas at USH and Knott's Merry Farm. We'll probably end up at SFMM at some point but I don't count that since they don't do much for the holidays.
  13. Holy crap ... I apologize to the rest of TPR but nothing is going to top my gift. Thank you to the amazing Kristin Connolly!!! I've decided that this needs to be my new desk lamp as you'll see in the pictures below. If the lamp wasn't enough, I got an awesome R2D2 Christmas snowglobe. That will go with the Xmas decorations when they come out later this week. It's a MAJOR AWARD!!!! The snap of a few sparks, a quick whiff of ozone, and the lamp blazed forth in unparalleled glory. Oh, look at that! Will you look at that? Isn't that glorious? It's... it's... it's indescribably beautiful! It reminds me of the Fourth of July!
  14. Yesterday I would have probably said no ... but we went to see the 50th in the theater last night and the theater we went to had to add a 2nd show due to demand. And this was in Oxnard. So I'd imagine that the demand is probably there. No matter the theme of a ride, if it's a good ride it's going to be popular. I personally can't stand the Transformers movies but I think the ride is amazing. I know plenty of people who don't care for The Simpsons but absolutely love the ride. If it's done right, it won't really matter. All that said, I really don't see it happening anytime soon.
  15. Rumors are that Brian Wilson might be headed to Detroit.
  16. ^ My thinking is it's because it's new. I'm guessing that once the crew and the GP get used to the seatbelts they may ease off on that. Especially on Goliath. I mean, it's been open for 14 years and everybody just lowers the lap bars instinctively at this point.
  17. I got an unexpected package the other day ... still trying to decide if I should open it now or wait. Decisions, Decisions ...
  18. Did anybody notice there is a new decoration in Krustyland (Fleet-A-Pita) and you have to complete the "Investorettes Pt 4" quest? Is this old news? I haven't been doing anything in Krustyland for awhile. Guess I'll have to head over there before I put everybody on tasks in Springfield.
  19. Finally saw Monsters University last weekend. I thought it was good, not one of Pixar's best. What it does do is make the original Monsters Inc better because it gives a bit more of the back story which is always fun.
  20. Just did a tap for everybody, thanks for those that have been tapping back. I've only been getting maybe 3-4 a day. I think I need to get my glasses checked. I keep not seeing the turkeys.
  21. There are rumors that the store there is going away as well to make room for the kiddie coaster. Kind of interesting that they wouldn't take out both at the same time ... but it is SFMM. Although it's possible the store could be used for the queue/exit store as well.
