  1. I couldn't find another thread on here about this for some reason, so here we go. I was wondering if there are any good roller coaster tour groups for adults in the USA. I was only able to find a tour group for teens and a tour group in Europe. Neither apply to me or what I'm looking for. So, if anyone has any good ideas on where to find a good tour group for roller coasters in the USA for adults, that would be amazing! Anyone got ideas?
  2. So, I just visited this park for my first time around a month ago right before hurricane Ian hit. To my surprise, Manta ended up being my favorite coaster there and not Mako (still a good ride though) like I was expecting. Does anyone else feel the same way about Manta? That thing is legit amazing!
  3. I just realized I forgot to give an update after asking for advice on visiting the park about a month ago. So, I went right before hurricane Ian hit Florida and, to be honest, I still feel torn on whether or not I like this park or Hersheypark more. Regardless, Iron Gwazi is my new favorite coaster and I actually fit into it surprisingly well. On another note, Montu is easily the second best coaster in the park. That thing is amazing! Overall, it was a good visit and a good park!
  4. So, now with Six Flags going down the path that it is lately, is SFDL just going to stagnate now in regards to additions? Like, how bad is it going to be for the next decade or so? Also, is it now confirmed the Warner Bros. IPs are never coming to the park?
  5. Any news on the progress with the shuttle loop? Like, how confident are we that it will open next year? Also, are they adding a more larger scale drop tower than the kiddie one they already got?
  6. So, I'm going to Busch Gardens Tampa for the first time soon and had some questions I wanted to ask before I go. 1. If I fit on everything at Six Flags Darien Lake and Hersheypark, should I have any problem fitting on anything at Busch Gardens Tampa? I am admittedly on the slightly bigger end. Like, how different is fitting on those RMC trains like on Iron Gwazi compared to fitting into an Intamin Mega Coaster train? 2. Any cool natural places to check out nearby? 3. Any good food in and around the park?
  7. So, I'm going to Hersheypark a couple days after fourth of July, and I heard Storm Runner is currently closed. How likely is it that Storm Runner will be open by then? Also, any advice for when I visit the park?
  8. Stuff like this just makes me cringe. The dude in (Link removed because it's stupid) basically harassed one of the ride ops at Predator (and even tells on himself like it's something okay to do), and then calls it "racist" when they confronted him about it. Ride ops should never be harassed. No one should receive unsolicited flirtations when they're doing their job. And, for gosh sake, it ain't racist to call it out when it happens. The dude who made this video is actually disgusting.
  9. Has anyone seen progress on the amusement park from the water park? I'm surprised how few updates there has been on that topic. How far into construction is the amusement park portion of it?
  10. They announced it here on their Instagram. https://www.instagram.com/p/Cb-JMeOAqP3/?utm_source=ig_embed&ig_rid=a6fe9e3c-d8ca-4c52-92f7-3f3b838abd60 Also, you've already seen the track? Like, at SFDL or somewhere else?
  11. GCI announced that 700 feet of their Titan track is being installed somewhere, but didn't say where exactly. How likely is it that this is going on at SFDL?
  12. Does anyone know if there will be improvements in the park other than the waterpark for this season?
  13. Screamscape is now saying there are still possible plans to remove Ride of Steel and for the true owners of the park to sell it back to Six Flags to relocate to another park. This is despite the park literally coming out on Twitter to say they are not removing Ride of Steel. What is Screamscape even doing at this point?
  14. Wouldn't it make more sense to keep the park open since it will still print at least some money for them? I doubt EPR will be closing the park down. As for what crash1984 said about ROS, the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. I absolutely despise the idea of ROS leaving, sure... but it is an Intamin mega coaster from 1999 and we all saw what happened to Volcano. With that being said, why isn't the same being said about Superman Ride of Steel at Six Flags America and Superman the Ride and Six Flags New England? Is Six Flags Darien Lake just cheaper with their budget than those parks? Why aren't their rumors about their versions leaving their parks? Anyways, I'm hopeful that Ride of Steel stays at SFDL, but it wouldn't shock me either if it leaves... and that the same happens at the other parks too. These early Intamin coasters have seen better days it appears.
  15. I found this on YouTube. It's footage of Ride of Steel during it's opening year. It came up in my recommended and I had a feeling others here would appreciate this find. Footage of Ride of Steel from 1999
  16. Oh, the pretty lights are nice! By the way, are there still no hints on the fate of Mind Eraser for next season? I believe it was SBNO for the entire 2021 season. Is it safe to doubt they will do a Riddler Revenge style renovation (minus the IP) on Mind Eraser? Part of me still feels optimistic it may happen... maybe.
  17. Is there any word or even hint yet on what coaster is being added to the park next season? Or has that been delayed? What's going on in those regards?
  18. Why does it seem as though Mind Eraser has been closed a lot recently? Did something happen to it?
  19. I just found out the park won't operate daily until July. For some reason I remember daily operations starting in June during previous seasons. Am I not remembering this correctly or did something change?
  20. Yes, of course! Also, Scream from SFMM is most certainly going to Six Flags Darien Lake! :P
  21. Last I knew, he's right. If you disagree, can you give some evidence instead of a gif? lol On another note, yeah as much as I wish Darien Lake was getting it, that's obviously not happening. I'm assuming this will either go to Cedar Point or Dollywood, with a slim chance of it going to Holiday World.
  22. Aparently, Six Flags over Georgia has an odd new camera policy. However, that's not the main reason as to why I'm sharing this video. Later in the video it appears as though the ride ops are not exactly the best at what they do. They apparently endangered guests at least twice throughout the day the YouTuber was visiting SFOG. Is this a consistent problem or an isolated incident? Mod Edit: Sorry, we don’t allow videos from this channel on our site. Thanks.
