  1. This coaster looks so Awesome. I have to say three years ago the ride ended our day of fun because my sons head hurt so bad he threw-up. I am a bit confused as to how the cars stay on the red portion of track. Are they going to add wood on top and then a metal track? Sorry, red neck from Missouri trying to figure out how this beast will run.
  2. We haven't had that much snow in KC this year! Awesome pics! Do you SoCal people have heaters in your houses?
  3. Did anybody notice if their were big boy seats on the ride? Usually B&M have them, but those seats look different than any coaster seats I have seen.
  4. Hip Hip huray!!! We get lights this year! Sounds like a great thing to atract a crowd when a new massive waterpark is setting up across town. No new water ride at OOF, no new ride at WOF. Lets see-GWL put a triple tornado in and SV is adding phase 2 and 3 this year. Yea, CF is doing a great job! If I want to see lights I will go to the Plaza, I want flat rides!!!!!!!!
  5. They have a billboard in Kansas City right before the WOF exit on I435. This is the first billboard for a park outside of Kansas City I have ever seen.
  6. Seriously. Me too. The really great part about WOF is anytime in the summer is a great time to visit the park. It is only full in October for the Haunt so come and enjoy! For those of you who haven't been to the park here is what to expect: 1. You will be surprised how easy it is to get around the park. It is a simple loop with rides spread out. 2. Lots and I mean lots of over weight people with bad Tatoos! 3. Fun coasters with no lines other than Spinning dragons which will have 20 people in line and take 30 minutes to board. 4. A secret ride in a building that may be one of the best rides in any park nobody knows about. I will give you a hint... Go to the Americana section of the park and hang a left prior to getting your neck broken on the Timber Wolf! 5. Asphalt is very hot in Kansas City in Aug. so be prepared for this part of the day. 6. The Patriot and Mamba are two very underated coasters. I don't know anybody who has rode them that wasn't impressed. 7. WOF still has the old time cars. Why would I put this in, because it is nice to see a park keep some classic rides that were there at the beginning. 8. Trash cans, I say TRASH CANS EVERYWHERE! 9. Soda vending machines with Roller Coasters on the front that aren't even at WOF! Sad but true! 10. One of the coolest views of any Amusment park from the Hiway! It looks like coaster heaven from I435 with a veiw of 6 coasters as your driving by!
  7. Just to throw a wrench in everything how about Worlds of Fun. Before everybody here goes crazy here are some things to think about. 1. Kansas City is getting a Slitterbaum next year that will really blow the socks off of Oceans of fun. So, I'm guessing that they will connect the two parks and have just one fair for both WOF and OofF. Since the Prowler is opening this year could it be possible that WOF and Cedar Fair would also put a Large Steel Coaster in as well? 2. With the lack of a new steel coaster in Missouri since The Patriot it is time for one of the three major parks to get a steel coaster. Also, with CC closing in Branson the thrill seekers have one less reason to go to Branson. 3.Next season could be make or break for WOF as we know it with all of the new entertainment options happening in Kansas City, so they really are going to have to do something to attract the GP to the location. Less expendable entertainment cash + more options= trouble for the park that doesn't offer a big bang in 2010 in KC. 4. This may seem unrealalistic to you folks in the East and West but realize Kansas City, MO is trying to become a destination tourist spot in the middle of America. Here is a small list of options the city will offer in 2010 for your entertainment money. Worlds of Fun; Oceans of Fun; Slitterbaum; Great Wolf Lodge; Kansas City Royals; Kansas City Chiefs; Legends Entertainment district which is attached to the Kansas Speedway (this area also has the first Dinosaur restaurant just like the one they either finished or are about to in Downtown Disney); The Country Club Plaza; three free standing Casinos and possibly a forth at the Race track; Union Station which houses Science City. There is talk of Legoland as well, so as you can see this city which is centrally located has the possibility of receiving that very pretty yellow B&M coaster. Oh yea, I don't really think it will happen, I just wanted to post a positive report on my home town. I hope it will intrigue TPR enough to add the city onto a future trip!
  8. Go into this trip realizing you won't be able to see and or do everything. Go slow, start early and enjoy the atmosphere. If you have this type of attitude you will get more than expected. Remember that even though this is a very busy time the Disney parks find a way to handle the crowds.
  9. I totally agree, I loved Gwazi! Every G.C.I. that I have rode (3) have been awesome! I can't wait! I have been so let down with WOF over the past year due to the lack of anything new this year. But, this really makes up for it!
  10. The ride looks awesome! With that being said here is my concerns with this coaster. 1-We already know that WOF does a terrible job keeping up woodies 2-With that back area should somebody not be concerned with deer? I know of three occasions I saw deer out by the train tracks. 3-When it rains is it going to take a while for that area to have runoff before they can stat the ride again? But, even with the concerns I'm very excited for the new ride!!!!!! GO Kansas City!
  11. I can't believe nobody mentioned the zoo and I believe the musuem are free. That's right people in St. Louis you can do a ton of stuff free. I think the only things that cost are the Arch and Six flags. The zoo is truley an awesome place. Make sure you fit some time in to do the landing and the Bush stadium tour. They also have/had the World bowling musuem but I think their losing it to Indy this year. Oh yea eat some good eggplant on the hill gumba! Great town!
  12. My question is when limiting the topic to such a specific type of ride, how is it possible to truley get any thing out of the posts? I don't mean this negetivley but if you have only rode 4 B&M Inverts how can you garade each of them. Here's my thoughts, take a look at the different lists and see if you can gather anything from them. Here's what I see: 1-People from the midwest have The Patriot on their list 2-People from the East all have Alfi on their list 3-People that have taken a trip or live in Florida all Have Montu and DD's on their list 4- Our overseas friends love Black Mamba and Nememis 5. Our Southern friends like Flight Deck 6. And finally, our West coast friend love Silver Bullet So, I guess there is some really good info on this thread. First, that no matter where you are, if there is a B&M Invert it will be one of your favorite. Secondly, B&m Inverts are great coasters. BTW, here's my list: 1-Montu 2-DD's both sides, loved them both 3- Patriot (way better than most even know)(ride before you judge it) 4-Batman at STL and Dallas 4-
  13. But im a teen and Dollywood is my favorite park! You may be an exception to the rule. Good enough answer?
