  1. Haven't ridden a coaster in October, but for last month, it's Mako, ahead of Incredible Hulk and SheiKra

  5. Disneyland's will probably open between Memorial Day and the 4th of July, while Hollywood Studios' will probably open just before Thanksgiving (the Florida parks' peak season is the Thanksgiving-Christmas period). I will guess that Universal will try to have their new Harry Potter coaster open a few months before DHS's Star Wars Land opens. I was at Universal on Sunday and saw some track assembled.
  6. The entire state of Ohio visited the park on Saturday so they probably didn't feel the need to go back the next day. [attachment=0]IMG_E2537.JPG[/attachment] It's bad when Magnum and Rougarou, usually walk-ons on most of my trips, were showing an hour wait! Also slightly surprised Steel Vengeance wasn't longer (I saw 2 1/2 hours for it on a weekday in mid-August)
  7. Because it’s low capacity and barely open? And it was cool! The heat index was over 100 degrees the day I went.
  8. My sister and I visited USO/IOA on Sunday and we could see track for the new coaster. Looks like Intamin or Mack track. My guess is that Universal will try to beat Disney by opening this a few months before Galaxy's Edge is supposed to open. Also, I found Hulk to be enjoyable. I was actually able to ride it twice back-to-back (the same can't be said for Rockit next door, which isn't easily rerideable). Is the refurbished Hulk a new credit compared to the old one?
  9. At SeaWorld right now and Infinity Falls is drawing a 45 minute - 1 hour wait during soft opening (it’s not on the park map yet) due to insane heat. Looks like a very good ride, but I won’t ride because it looks like you get soaked. Antarctica is also drawing a 45 minute wait due to it being air conditioned Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. I honestly enjoyed the throwback photo lol! That is what the park looked like the last time I visited. That had to have been TTD's first year as Iron Dragon still had white supports (its supports were painted yellow in 2004 or 2005)
  13. I managed to stay hydrated by downing five Powerades and a water. I did get Quick Queue and Stanley Falls (and Congo River Rapids) was awfully tempting, but I didn't end up riding it (I had no change of clothes and I had a 1 1/2 hour bus ride back to Orlando). However, I did take the Sky Ride across the park. To sum up the crowds, most of the big coasters and Falcon's Fury were walk-ons all day (the longest was Cheetah Hunt (which was only 15-30 minutes at most) and Kumba, which was running one train) while Stanley Falls and Congo River Rapids had 15-30 minute waits most of the day
  14. On a side note, it might be warmer today than it was on my Kings Island heat exhaustion day last year Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Cheetah Hunt. It tends to have the longest line most of the day, even when it's not too busy. If you get there at opening it's the first coaster you come to anyway when going to the right. After that, Cobra's Curse. Thank you for the wise words. I went right to Cheetah Hunt and waited about a half hour. Then I ended up buying Quick Queue (a massive bargain compared to other chains) and riding Cobra’s Curse and Montu with no wait. Now waiting for a show before going to tackle the other coasters Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. I've been to the Mall of America once. That was back in 2000 when the only coaster there was what is now Orange Streak. The log flume was wetter than Splash Mountain IMHO
  17. Wildfire Lightning Rod or Top Thrill Dragster?
  18. I agree 100%. It never made sense to me why a park like SeaWorld, which is really geared towards children and families ended up with three coasters that are 54" which Busch Gardens got rides like Cheetah Hunt and Cobra's Curse which have more "SeaWorld Demographic-Friendly" height restrictions. IMHO, the only thing missing from SeaWorld's coaster lineup is a Wave Breaker-style launched coaster Wait... what? That doesn't even make any sense. So you're saying that if they had a "Wave Breaker-style" coaster, they'd be done. They don't need any more roller coasters? I was trying to say that a Wave Breaker-style launched coaster should be their next coaster as SeaWorld doesn't have a launched coaster (one of very few major parks without a launched coaster)
