  1. Any idea if platinum passes from other parks will work for King's Island events like Haunt and their Christmas event? I know KI platinum passes work, but will my CW pass work?
  2. I paid $1.44 per litre. That works out to $5.44 per gallon. I'd take $4 per gallon anytime!!!
  3. Wouldn't it be awesome it RMC Built an updated version of the Crystal Beach Cyclone? Now that would be awesome!!
  4. Don't get me wrong, my kids love the bigger rides, leviathan being one of our favourites (for those who have ridden), but I actually enjoyed Darien Lake better than CW. CW is just too crowded and the masses make it less enjoyable! I'd take a smaller park any day, even without the biggest and best coasters, because leaving at the end of the day tired and happy is more important than tired frustrated and grumpy.
  5. I was there this weekend and I really can't say much negative about the park. It was very clean and the landscaping was quite nice. Food was decent and not too pricy either. I will actually come back again this summer for sure as my 9 and 12 year old had a blast! I felt comfortable in the park, and didn't have to keep a super close eye on them. The coasters were fun and they loved the flats! There were also a lot of staff everywhere (many getting trained). The best thing is their new fun guarantees- if certain rides are closed for more than 4 hours, you can get a pass to return for free within the week. If any line is more than 45 minutes, go to guest services for a free front of the line pass. This is impressive. Now, about operations, they were slow. Like 4-6 minute train dispatches on predator and ride of steel. They need to really work on this. I did however appreciate that they checked the height of my daughter to make sure it was safe to ride. She is exactly 54". The ride op actually apologized for checking! I told him that I was thankful that he was looking out for safety. This kind of threw him for a loop! Anyways, long story short, I will return! No plans to visit Canada's wonderland though....to busy and crowded! Darien lake has won my family over!! Just a couple of fun pics now.
  6. I'm flying in for the run this weekend too. I haven't been to Disneyland since 1997. I know there have been a lot of changes but my question is this - Should I get a hopper pass? I'm planning on 1 day at Disneyland and 1 day at California Adventure. Is the hopper really necessary? Also - Can you use the old Magic your Way Plus no expiry passess from Walt Disney World? I have heard both yes and no. Happy running!
  7. What I love about the look of this ride and the trains is that there really doesn't appear to be anything to "hold on to" while you are riding. This could create anxiety for some but in a great way! Love it!
  8. Thanks, I'll give it a try. I hope it works,if not, I'll just have to suck it up and buy a couple of days....
  9. I was wondering if anyone knows if older park hopper passes (no expiry option) I bought in Walt Disney World are able to be used at California properties? I have 2 days left on each and will be onthe West coast for a couple of days and would like to use them if I could. Just curious.
  10. I registered this morning for my first run in CA. I was very lucky to get in as it sold out so fast. Any runners have any tips on where to fly in (is LAX the only option). Where should I stay? Do the resorts have shuttles like in FLA? So many questions!!
  11. Hey All! I am so excited about my first Goofy Challenge in a few days. I am in Corral B and hoping to get through the marathon in under 4 hours. Its too late now, but next year we should do a TPR meet up on Marathon weekend. I'm Bib 21935 if you happen to see me among the 15000 runners! Any word on the 20mile mark entertainment? I heard it is something big and never done at the Marathon before! Anyways - Good luck to all and safe running! David
  12. Robb, Elissa and the TPR Crew - thanks for a fantastic day at Canada's Wonderland. It was a great time and my daughter is officially an enthusiast. We had several rides on many of the parks coasters. Despite not purchasing a fastlane pass, we rode everything that we wanted to, some more than once! The food was awesome and the extra suprised were great! Also a huge thank you to Dineen and Matt for hosting the group and providing insight on the park, rides and operations. I hope to make your Bash events an annual tradition. Thanks again!
  13. Robb- with leviathan bash just a week away, do you have any information about arrival times, event check in, etc. I was just curious and hoping I have not missed an email. Thanks.
  14. My family and I went to Blue Mountain to celebrate father's day. While there, we explored the village, but also had an awesome ride on their mountain coaster. It was a lot of fun and quite fast. There were some great "pops of air" and the helix's were pretty intense at full speed! Ridge runner takes a nice leisurely stroll up the lift hill. On the way up there is a great view of the low ropes course and the high ropes course. We didn't get a chance to do these on this trip, but we are heading back this week for a few days of hiking and some family fun. Once at the top, the alpine coaster takes a sharp turn and heads into a pretty substantial drop to get some great speed right away. There were a lot of drops followed by a helix with some decent banking. The lateral forces were a nice surprise. About halfway down the course, there was an uphill section (only about 5-6 feet) that provided a suprising amount of air! Anyways, it was a good ride. it cost $38 for our family - two adults and two kids as passengers. Worth the money - sure! Here are some pictures, enjoy! The new Ridge Runner! Seated in the ride vehicle - good thing I wasn't any bigger - I wouldn't have been able to keep my hands and feet inside the train at all times. For the lift hill enthusiasts Going up? Some of the track from the lift. the close to the mountain part through the trees.... a bit of the rope course and the alpine coaster. the track crosses the lift hill multiple times. the last helix... entering the break run. Notice it is not 80ft off the ground (ahem, Leviathan....) nice improvement from this.
  15. I searched and didn't find this yet, but it appears that Legoland Discovery Centre is being built in Vaughan Mills Mall, just north of Toronto - right beside Canada's Wonderland. It is replacing the already gone Nascar Speed Park. I think this is a great addition to the mall and a good way for Merlin to test out the Canadian Market. Who knows, maybe a full scale Legoland could be in the future. Legoland Canada Link Here is the text
  16. Went to the Bash and Hershey last summer and had a great time. Our family (or parts of) will definitely be there this year! Thanks for hosting this Robb, Elissa and KidTums!
  17. I like a lot of what I have seen so far, but here's my 2 cents. Personally, I am not a fan of the dark backgrounds. As a person with colourblindness, I find bright text on dark backgrounds harder to read and after a while, give me a headache. Personally I think a clean white or light backgound is best - like the apple website or even cntower.com. I think the lighter backgrounds are just a bit more appealing. Having said this - I also understand that the rest of the site used the black/grey scheme, so if Robb was to choose a light background, a change in the rest of the site might be required. Just something to think about (and a whole lot more work for Robb......)
  18. Hey all - I'm flying in to Orlando in a couple of days. I'm using the 5k as a warm up for my first marathon! Im a bit nervous, but have been training since about May. Finished my schedule yesterday and am ready to run. Hope to finish in 4:15. Maybe I'll see you on the course!
  19. I'll bet it is for the highly rumoured TPR park opening on International Drive (previously known as Orlando Thrill Park)! Thanks for the great coverage.
  20. Awesome trip report - It is nice to see the details of a park that I am sure I'll never get to. Thanks for a great read and fantastic photos!
  21. I am dreading ...I mean heading....to the park tomorrow. If there is anything interesting happening, I'll try and post a few pictures. I don't mind the park, but it is a little on the boring side after being a season pass holder in the past. I also don't like the hour waits for rides that are just - MEH! Once my kids are just 1 inch taller, and can ride almost everything, it will make a difference I'm sure. As for Leviathan - I really was hoping for an Intamin as well. I prefer their rides over B&M, but variety is nice. Ttwo big B&M scream machines just seems excessive and I think people would have clearly noted differences if they were made by different manufacturers.
  22. Lightning Racer - During nighttime ERT at ECB. WOW! Great ride!
