  1. Don't hurt though. I know, my opinion is very unpopular, but for the folks that say "couldn't hurt" hear me.
  2. The petition has over 18,000 votes. Do these ever get this high? Oh well, can't hurt. https://www.change.org/p/palace-entertainment-save-the-kangaroo-and-paratrooper-at-kennywood-park
  3. Interesting pick. Well, it's HW. They will do it well. Daydream of the insanitay and grossness if they picked a John Waters' movie.
  4. I would definitely look into that; I'd think with the very connected CP fan base, someone could get an answer on that. That is what I remember, but that was back in 1999. It could have been wrong. The number seemed very high to me at the time. Perhaps that's loaded weight?
  5. A standard 4 (3 bench) or 6 (2 bench) car PTC train used to weigh 6 tons. But that was with out all the extra crap they introduced in the 90s (individual lap bar lockers/bars/steel-core headrests, etc.) I remember reading a Millennium Force train weighs 28 tons. Geesh! No wonder it holds it's speed so well.
  6. I signed the petition, can't hurt. It helped with Whizzer (despite what some nasties still say, that SFGAmerica had that set up, they didn't). Kangaroo rocks. Take it down, spend a couple years refurbishing (or completely rebuilding it) and re-introduce it. It'd be the hugest thing since... I dunno. It'd be popular out there. Back when I worked at CP (90s!) if we could get a day off (is that still legal in Sandusky?) we'd zap out to Kennywood. 4 of us could squeeze in those seats, good times.
  7. Great addition! I love the color scheme; Silverwood needs a dash of red. I keep wondering when they will pull a Holiday World and convert their 2 long-wait woodies into 2 train ops, like Holiday World for Raven and Legend years ago.
  8. ^Yeah, blah blah blah... we knew it would be sensationalized. It wouldn't have been made otherwise. Despite all that, it was still the funniest, most entertaining thing I've seen in months. I'm going to watch it again to to see these characters in action. Excellent! I didn't get to Action Park. But I was at other water parks, and amusement parks too in the 80s (and the tail end of the 70s!). A ride being safe or not is one thing, but my gosh have people become super wimps when it comes to rides.
  9. So uh... this years' Holiwood Nights turned out to be a most attended ever, with reportedly between 900 and 1,000 people. It was nuts! Holiday World did a snap up job with operations, especially considering. It is impressive to see them constantly show up and knock it out of the park, even when things go horribly wrong. The coasters were running outstanding; each smoother than usual but still a couple quick/minor pot hole/kickers. I don't think I'll go to any more events during this pandemic (so that may mean a nix on my Knoebels PPP trip next month), but if I did it again, it would be
  10. Have we become complete wimps in this country? Good gosh this has gotten ridiculous. I cried the first time I rode a kiddie coaster - stuff is scary sometimes! Let em go! When I was 6 we waited in line for Space Mountain then didn't ride cuz I had a meltdown. There was no shortage of guests who will ride - same at Knoebels. PS - I rode that kiddie coaster (at Sauzer's Kiddieland in Indiana) and Space Mountain, FL later and loved them both.
  11. Say it! At 6'1", you'd think I'd get into most stuff. I don't know where I was last year - maybe a carnival - and I decided I'd get one of those caterpillar coaster credits. I'm not even sure the manufacturer, but I could barely get in sideways, with my knees sticking straight up. Forget about the lap bar. I sat there, decided it wasn't going to work (before attention was focused on me) then politely worked my way out of the seat and walked down the ramp.
  12. With the new mask mandate, my friend (from California) and I are second thinking about going to Holiwood Nights. I understand the mask mandate - and agree on rides and in small spaces. Personally, I'd rather not wear a mask at a park all day on midways and stuff, so I may not go. It's an adult decision and it will stink if I don't go, but following the rules and respecting others is more important. Crazy thought - I can race down to the park to get my ya-ya's out before the mandate goes in effect on Monday. I might just settle for Little A-merrick-A, which is much closer, but it's
  13. ^Thanks for the tip. I'm more likely going out of my way for a classic wild ride/water ride than a new big giga. It's got to the point where fun trumps credit count. Ah, to be over 40. Skyrides, wild slides, classic flats, classic coaster vehicles here I come! Fun beats bigger - I spent 3 days at Knoebels last year but only 5 hours at my local corporate park (on 2 visits). Gotta ride Whizzer
