  1. When they panned across the park in the video announcing the new ride I thought it was what I soon realized to be Kraken with its new paint job.
  2. Which one is it, North America, or the World? Was it originally supposed to be in the world and due to delays was outclassed?
  3. Any word on if they're planning on retrofitting any rides with the locker system from Velocicoaster?
  4. This is pretty neat! I just moved to SoCal so I haven't been able to experience the parks out here, but it's crazy coming from FL seeing how jam packed these parks are, and then seeing how big Magic Mountain's footprint. Operating a helicopter from 1,400 feet up and moving rapidly over the area vs. the camera''s zoomed view are far different.
  5. Having never ridden a coaster with comfort collars, are they just intrusive? Do you find yourself banging your neck against them? etc.
  6. Dueling Dragons, back when it used to duel. Ice was my shit growing up, and Fire was my first ever roller coaster I ever rode.
  7. I'm loving this addition to the parks. My question on it though: do they group you with others that aren't in your party? Did you have to wait for an individual carriage? etc.
  8. I love love love the color on this ride, and I'm super stoked that such a bad ass RMC to such an amazing park!
  9. Can we get a POV for those of us who don't have the game? It looks incredible and I'd love to see it!
  10. I absolutely love those smashed bottle plates! Also a huge fan of the pillars design in the lobby, and how it's reflected in the artwork!
  11. And that same day, I watched people RUN out of the queue and RUN to get back in line. Here I was in September of 2017 and I watching people run around the queue to "Dragon Hop" just like we did in 1999. Exactly the same. No different. Oh, except instead of running back in line in 1999, in 2017 it was: Run... stop at the metal detector... run some more... Were you still able to "Dragon Hop" with the fluffy bunnies having a timer on them? Or was it too time constrictive?
  12. I assume Rowling wanted a more family vibe to the rides there. Honestly I'm very disappointed in how this ride turned out. The immense lack of theme is just striking to me. As a Potter fan myself, and seeing how much went into Gringotts, and the Forbidden Journey, just to get a ride that has been reviewed as "being able to tell you're in a big a show building" is immensely disappointing. On top of that Dueling Dragons: Fire was my first roller coaster, so there was some sentimentality about losing that ride. While we didn't get a thrill ride to replace it, it just feels very underwhelming. Even just looking at the cars for the trains, I just wished they'd have painted them to mimic the movie, or something of the description to the book. I feel like this is one of those rides I'll end up passing on unless I can get a quick ride on the single rider queue (assuming it has one.) Other than that I'm very excited for what's to come in the Jurassic Park area.
  13. At the risk of sounding dumb; how does she keep her leg straight under the forces at the bottom of the swing for the foot cam? Am I missing some prop in the image? Other than that, it looks like a great addition to the park!
  14. Honestly, good riddance. That place is a gold mine for real estate in Denver. I would love to see Lakeside get some love, but Elitch just seems a bit dumpy and I don't really care for it after only one visit.
  15. I'm so happy that it's truly getting better!
  16. Just imagining the outward bank into an inversion on the first drop as both tracks dive towards each other. Gwazi even at its worst was such a wild ride! I can't wait to see what they do with all that space and structure!
  17. If you want to expose the controversy behind it all, you should do a series with Shane Dawson. He does a lot of conspiracy stuff on youtube, and reveals the backgrounds behind things. I'm sure with your social media presences combined (his most recent 5 part series on JefreeStar received 87M views so far.) Plus you could bring in more advertising for the website that way, and promote your own award. Or just do a form of what he does, and create a series to shake things up. People love a good scandal story. #justsaying
  18. All kidding aside, how awesome would it be if TPR had its own prestigious award in the amusement industry! Give a whole different facet to the review in ThemeParkReview!
