  1. So, I will be in Montreal in September for just a few short days. I was thinking of trying to sneak in a Sunday afternoon at the park and was curious for anyone who lives in the area - would I be better off trying to hit from like 2-7 in the park, or just go hit some of the other sights/sounds/touristy crap in Montreal? It will be my first time there, and as much as I would love to visit La Ronde, I don't think I will make it in time to do a full day at the park. Please give me any insight as to what you think I should do! Also - I will be staying in downtown Montreal and will have a
  2. A couple questions for those who have been to the area multiple times: 1. We are going for 4 days in April, probably hitting the park 2 of those, is it worth staying at one of the Dollywood cabins for the ticket deal? Do they ever run last minute deals on their cabins? Or should we just go ahead and book elsewhere and save a little money? 2. How does the child swap policy for riding work at Dollywood? We've encountered a LOT of variation even from what the park employees say from place to place, and there will be multiple parents with kids swapping out.
  3. So I haven't seen any TRs for Phantom Fright Nights yet this year. How does this year stack up to the last couple of years haunt wise? The last time I went they were about on par with the mid level houses from, let's say CP or Kings Island. Also - are there any rides they haven't been running due to low staffing, etc.?
  4. I'm a big rule follower (slightly ocd, so they go hand in hand), so we'll follow the guidelines. I'm pretty big on cargo khakis and a polo shirt, so it sounds like that should be good. Thanks for the input!
  5. A quick question for anyone who has been on a Disney cruise recently. The paperwork we just received for out cruise said that there were no shorts allowed during dining. We've talked to friends who just got back from a Disney cruise and said that almost everyone was wearing shorts at dinner, as long as they had on a collared shirt or something similar. Anyone care to give me the jive on what the story is? Also, this is excluding formal dining.
  6. I get a little crazy with the black and white sometimes. I loved the place and plan on hitting it again next year, hopefully along with SFNE to hit Iron Cyclone. Yankee Cannonball is probably right there at the bottom of my top 10/15 or so. Wish I could have got a few more laps in.
  7. For some odd reason I didn't take a picture of it. I will correct this next year and then totally forget to come back to the Canobie thread to mention it.
  8. My family found ourselves up in Boston for the 2014 North American Irish Road Bowling Championships (yeah, you're going to have to Youtube this one) and decided to make a quick stop at Canobie. This was my first visit to this park and I was absolutely impressed with everything about it. We only had about 5 hours to spend, so we didn't get to do any of the water park stuff, but there is a good chance that we will be back there next summer, so we plan on stopping over again, albeit with a little more time at the park hopefully. I had heard about Canobie many moons ago, but didn't know
  9. You know, being a mechanical engineer I watch a lot of the coaster of "death" videos and think, "I would ride that, it doesn't look that unsafe really." But this was the first time I actually had a second thought when watching a video. I'm pretty trusting of professional engineers and all, but when that thing releases from the lift the track sure does look skimpy. I honestly don't know if I would trust those welds seeing as how there is rust on the throughout the ride. But, who the hell am I kidding, I'd ride that pig in a heartbeat!
  10. So here is an idea. When a coaster gets to the point in its life that it needs a paint job, such as this one, why not make it an upcharge "graffiti" attraction? Seriously, pay 15 bucks, sign a waiver, get a can of spray paint and go to town on it. They could almost announce it as an attraction in itself where they would shut the ride for a couple hours to have "graffiti time"! They might be able to make enough in a summer to at least actually paint the lift hill for the next year.
  11. I just have to say... the bags of crap have gotten intensely awesome over the years. Kudos!
  12. I think the real question here is, will the bag-o-crap conatain sea lions and orgasming women?
  13. I think every park needs one of these... If you can get it to run, you can ride it! An engineer and lawyer's dream, all at the same time! Seriously, the engineer in my would love to go around to parks with closed rides and see if I could get the going.
  14. I think for me personally it's been the amount of people at the events. I think that even though everything does "feel" and "look" the same, if I could get scared, or even made to jump, a few times at an event, I would keep going back over and over. For me now I go for the atmosphere. Being at an amusement park in late fall (especially those that close seasonally) with all of the Halloween decorations just sets such an awesome mood. But, the people... OH THE PEOPLE! I remember going to the first couple Halloweekends at Cedar Point. The place was much less crowded as to where I remembe
