  1. Finally got on Predator with the Titan Track and here are my thoughts - The Good: The Titan Track feels great, it's incredibly smooth and maintains/builds speed better than pretty much all points on the ride The Bad: Coming back out of the Titan Track you are immediately reminded how rough the rest of the coaster is, the speed that you build/maintain through the death turn (that you previously lost due to the track slowing you down) makes the next bit of track feel like getting in a bit of a car accident. Final thoughts: The Titan Track is a huge success and improvement for that portion of the ride, I'd like to see a whole coaster done with Titan Track, but unfortunately with only a few hundred feet on the retracking done on Predator I don't really think it helps the whole experience (even thought it does massively help the one section of track). If Six Flags wanted to keep Predator's profiling mainly the same, but transitioned the whole ride to Titan Track I would not be upset about that at all.
  2. I don't know the truth about this, but I heard something awhile back about them desiring to have a sign in that location, but if they took the current one down there would be some impediment in putting up a new one in the future, so they left the blank sign as a kind of placeholder. This was only a rumor that I heard so I can not guarantee that it is true.
  3. I continue to be reminded why I dislike people... Let's just flaunt that we're jerks and put evidence up all over the internet to prove the fact. Why can't people just be decent?
  4. Correct, but they did have one thing right, it needed a "new" train, I'm just surprised they actually got one, it would be easy to block of that part of the park and not have to staff it this year
  5. I saw that also. I thought they weren't going to run Mind Eraser this year, it's nice to see it open with a "new" train even with being what it is. There's also a clip going around of Predator on the new Titan track it looks like a really smooth transition and section. Well done by GCI and the park to improve some of that ride. I hope they keep adding new sections to Predator.
  6. I heard that also from a friend who was there, they said that the part that was done improved the ride overall in their opinion. "The one section is much smoother and the ride seems to have more speed throughout" No clue how true that is, but I'm glad that it got at least one bit of positive review. I'm looking forward to checking out the titan track on predator in a few weeks here too
  7. I'm only sad because Blue Streak was my second coaster (it wasn't nearly as bad 30 years ago). Overall this has been a very long time coming for the property, which is sad, but seemingly inevitable Last I knew the remains of Blue Streak were mainly still lying on the ground, but the parts that were actually burned have been mainly cleaned up. This may have changed, but that's what I last heard.
  8. Well that's a cheery thought (even if it is correct) We can at least hope that they add more titan track to it every year and eventually the whole thing may be kind of smoothish. The largest investment the park needs currently is paint and landscaping, it would go a long way to make the park seem nicer
  9. ^ Personally I thought it was interesting and wish I could have spent more time reading and looking at things, but my children wanted to get through quickly to get to the zoo section and the playground. I understand why some people would have no interest at all in the Ark Encounter, but I'm a Christian and it was designed for my demographic, so I can understand why people would be really interested in it and why some people would have no interest at all. Hard to know from a forum what people would be interested in, but it is a thing between Kings Island and Kentucky Kingdom that some people may be interested in. If you're not that's fine, you can always just drive right past that exit and that's fine too.
  10. I don't often say it, but good job Darien Lake for doing something with that coaster, I hope it improves it (and they keep adding more ideally)
  11. The place was pretty much dead. Kind of sad because it wasn't awful when I was a young child, but it has been a disaster for years. The fact that the owner has said nothing of his plans (he really doesn't have to) does leave those who live around there feeling pretty angry/annoyed about the whole thing, and I can get that, but the thing that makes me annoyed by him is that he has honestly been a pretty major jerk to the locals (they haven't been kind to him either of course). There are some questionable (seeming) legal things that have gone on with the property lately, but that's the precedent that was set over the past 20 years or so, so I guess the new owner can't really be blamed for continuing to use the stupid system that was already in place.
  12. Got it, I must have been mis-remembering or only ever saw the 48" part of the sign. My daughter didn't have any real interest in riding it when I last took her (2019) so I didn't even bother checking to hard, I just remember thinking the height requirement was higher than I expected. Just for kicks though I checked out the site in 2019 using the wayback machine The wording was poorly done, and I think the website just had some incorrect heights listed (but really it obviously doesn't matter what they site had in 2019) Sorry for my incorrect memory on that one
  13. This exactly. It would also be nice for families if they could get a newer wheel that maybe doesn't have such a high height requirement (if I'm remembering it was a 52" height requirement for some reason... I mean come on, you're locked in a cage). If they were to get a new one a nice lighting package would be a must, you can't have the Sky Screamer be the only ride in the park with a good lighting package.
  14. For the next few years? I see an empty plot. I may be in the minority but I'd like to see them put in another ferris wheel, it just seemed like a great location for one, and each time I was there it was getting ridership. A discovery would be nice, but there are some other areas it would fit (honestly I expected a smaller model where Pirate is, but they actually refurbished it).
  15. Because people have become convinced it will be torn down any day now (which is honestly just silly).
