  1. The drop on LL:DOD is actually the least thrilling part of the ride. Weird, but true.
  2. I did a solo ride on the Knott's Log Ride during ERT at WCB and it was as awesome as you'd think it would be.
  3. Sierra Sidewinder @KBF during WCB. Seriously spun more than I've ever spun on ANY spinning coaster. I almost got sick.
  4. There has been some pretty hilarious stuff posted on this board in the past but that may just take the prize. Well done.
  5. Apparently the books below are a prop in the new Princess Fairytale Hall. I've heard at least one person complain that the books should not be in their original (non English) languages because the theme of MK is "Americana". I totally disagree. Fantasyland isn't Americana at all. Last I looked we don't have castle's like you'd see in the middle of the park, Snow White, Peter Pan, Beauty and the Beast, Little Mermaid, etc, AREN'T American stories. Anybody have a problem with this or is this yet another overraction by Disney nerds?
  6. Truth. And it's so amazing to see. I don't think I've said "Stupid Knott's" in about 3 years.
  7. Awesome shots of the Raccoon's. I guess SOMEBODY needs to clean up the park, why not Raccoon's.
  8. ^ Neither Studio 6F or Jet Stream opened until almost noon even though it was probably about 90 degrees+ at the time.
  9. I'm not too concerned about the "plastic" part of the 5C, I use a rubber case for my current 4 so I don't think that would be too big of an issue for me. Even if I got the 5S I'd probably get a similar case. I'll take a wait and see approach for now.
  10. Anybody watch the LiveStream for the 5C/5S? I'm still waiting to see a side-by-side comparison of the 2 new phones but right now I'm leaning towards the 5C. I only have an 8GB 4 right now so even the 16GB is an upgrade for me. Don't think there is enough difference between the 5C and 5S right now to pay an extra $100-$200.
  11. ^ The Monte crew was great, not just for ERT, but during regular park hours as well. Thank your fellow crew mates for the rest of us.
  12. Thanks for the Q&A stuff from SFMM, nice that they at least did some kind of Q&A. The rumors I had heard prior to the announcements was a 400ft Sky Screamer and the slides so I was pretty shocked about the kid coaster.
  13. I don't think that the only answer for Apocalypse at this point is an RMC makeover. It's not so far gone that it needs that. It just needs some love and these short "emergency" shut downs aren't going to cut it. After FF it needs to go down until Spring Break and get some track work done. Doesn't need to be complete, just needs some work, trains need some work, and some grease on the track/wheels. Roar up at SFDK needs the same thing but now that that park has gone year round I don't see it happening anytime soon.
  14. Could this possibly be the Windseeker that was rumored to go to WoF last year and that CF cancelled?
  15. Those outside of SoCal may not know who this is ... but Cal Worthington has pretty much been a Southern California institution for multiple generations. http://news.yahoo.com/cal-worthington-car-dealer-famed-191341002.html;_ylt=A2KJjanVIC5S5TEAWT7QtDMD When I was a kid I thought the commercial went "Pussy Cow, Pussy Cow, Pussy Cow".
  16. ^^ I've been to the park over 40 times in the past 2 years. I've never seen more than a 1 train wait for RRE when I've walked by. I'll certainly try and remember to take some pics on upcoming visits to see if I happen to be missing something.
  17. Just want to give Knott's a special shout out for yet another AMAZING West Coast Bash day. Not just for the events (which were amazing) but the entire park. 8-10 years ago we'd go down for Solace and during the day we couldn't wait to leave the park to go to Disney or other local parks. Even Universal one year. The past 2 years, even without all of the tours and Q&A, leaving the park isn't even something that crosses our mind. We had an absolute blast just being in the park and seeing the amazing turnaround the entire park has made the past 3-4 years. I see nothing but amazing things for the future of Knott's!!! It's so glad to have one of the parks I grew up enjoying so much bringing so much joy to my kids now.
  18. Totally agreed with your comments Robb. The kiddie coaster makes absolutely no sense to me. They have 3 now and none of them ever have a line, even on the busiest of days. I would have been less surprised if they had said they were removing Bugs Bunny World and putting in another coaster. We actually walked through BBW a bit on Saturday and the area is totally void of any personality ... or people. I'm still hoping for some improvements to the Full Throttle area once the offseason comes (after Fright Fest) but I'm not holding my breath.
  19. Yesterday's Knott's day was simply amazing. Thanks TPR and Knott's, can't wait for next WCB!!!
  20. I don't have any question that SFMM will get #20 in a few years. I'm actually waiting for that to happen so then maybe they'll STOP putting in coasters every year and turn their attention to other things like Revolution and Colossus and maybe somewhere down the road, new trains for Gold Rusher. Spent a few hours in the park with some WCB peeps today. It was on ok day, mostly due to the company. Rode Apocalypse, that thing is rough ... REALLY rough. It's now the 2nd best woodie in the park (IMO). Sad too. The part they recently re-tracked was actually the roughest part. And for some reason the AC in the pre-show area wasn't turned on so they were holding everybody outside under the shaded canopies and then letting you in all the way up to the station. Better than nothing ...
  21. Great addition, love a good swinging ship!!! Can't wait to ride it during the New Hotness tour next Summer!!! Mayflower ERT!!!!
  22. Disney on Friday, SFMM on Saturday, Knott's on Sunday. WCB Weekend!!!
  23. Considering I've visited SFMM 40 times in the past 2 years, and I try to ride Colossus at least once on every visit (because who knows if it's leaving) I'd say I'm easily over 300 rides on it by now. Could even be closer to 400.
