  1. Orion: Tallest, fastest, longest coaster! at Kings Island that’s made of steel.
  2. I'm not really thinking of anything too crazy, so ideal and realistic are pretty much the same. It's looking like 2021 will include: Pennsylvania Trip Orlando/Tampa Trip I guess ideal would be a spring break Virginia trip in late March/early April, but who knows how things will be by then.
  3. Steel Vengeance, Millennium Force, Top Thrill Dragster, Magnum XL-200, Rougarou, Valravn, and Gatekeeper all require a locker for loose articles.

  5. This will be a slower year. Definitely: Kings Island Cedar Point Probably: Kings Dominion Busch Gardens Williamsburg Maybe: Carowinds Hershey Park Canada's Wonderland Waldameer
  6. I don't know how much you've looked into it, but keep in mind that this will be an expensive credit for what it is. Zoo Parking and Admission will be required and set you back about $40-50. The coaster ride itself is only a couple of dollars on top of that. The coaster is very similar to the Ghoster Coaster/Woodstock Express junior woodies. Of course, it's your trip and your money so you do you. Just didn't want you to show up thinking it could be a quick, cheap credit stop.
  7. I had to go to Cedar Point for physics day in high school. Unfortunately, I was terrified of the big rides at that time! Our teacher didn't seem to care if we actually did the work so it was just a fun day. Everyone spent their time waiting in long lines for Raptor and Mantis because they were the new hotness. I rode Iron Dragon repeatedly because it had no line and it was about my speed at that time
  8. Rent a car. I was there in June. First visit to the area. I got around just fine using by using iPhone maps. Sure, it can take forever to get places, but it didn't feel that stressful or unbearable.
  9. It's hard for me to sort these all out, especially at the top. My opinion seems to change every time I visit. Maverick Steel Vengeance Top Thrill Dragster Millennium Force Raptor Magnum XL 200 Gatekeeper Gemini Blue Streak Valravn Rougarou Wicked Twister Corkscrew Iron Dragon Cedar Creek Mine Ride
  10. My god! An amazing park with an amazing coaster lineup keeps getting better. Can't wait to see the full POV and start hearing reviews next spring. We've already been planning a Florida trip for 2021. This makes me even more hyped. Also, purple and green has always been one of my favorite color combinations so that will look great.
  11. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (Disneyland) The Beast (Kings Island) Rolling Thunder (Six Flags Great Adventure)
  12. Probably cloned strippers. All dressed like Harley Quinn. I prefer Dragster over Ka. I felt like the launch on Ka was hesitant and not smooth. Felt like we were going to roll back for sure. Also, the aforementioned lap bars, theming, atmosphere of being in the center of the park
  13. There was no CP Gold Pass last year (2019). There was the regular season pass which didn't include parking, early entry, or perks; or the Platinum Pass.
  14. Been on the 'wagon since returning from vacation in late June. I've been eating well (not counting anything, but eliminating nearly all processed food). I've cut out soda at work and home. I will have the occasional sodas when going out or at the parks. Exercising regularly. I'm running using the Couch to 10k program. And strength training 2x a week. So far, I'm down 20 pounds. Still feel like I'm close to doing a walk of shame from coasters, but it's nice to see the scale numbers going down. Still fighting self-esteem issues too with being obese. But I'm making progress..
  15. It's exactly what we thought based upon what we saw already. And that's a good thing! I think this ride looks great. It is short but it packs a punch for the length that it does have. I'll be happy seeing this at my home park.
  16. I definitely recommend Hotel Breakers for the location and convenience, as well as the early entry. If you're looking for something a little more budget-friendly, Cedar Point also owns the CP Express Hotel, which is on the mainland, just off of the peninsula. So it's a few-minutes to drive to CP but still gives you the benefit of 1-hour early entry. As far as Fast Lane +, it will be crowded but certainly during the week will be less crowded than weekends. I would not purchase it ahead of time. Maybe even just power through the first day without one and then evaluate if you want to buy one for the second day. You will have early entry so you can knock out some of the rides with the longest waits in the park (Steel Vengeance, Maverick, and Millennium Force - if time allows). The cost varies by day, but for a summer weekday Fast Lane + can be upwards of $120-150. If your schedule allows and you can push your trip dates a few weeks, crowds should be lighter. A lot of Ohio schools start going back in session around the weeks of August 12 or 19.
  17. CA - X2 FL - Kumba GA - Goliath IL - Goliath IN - Voyage KY - Storm Chaser NC - Fury 325 NJ - El Toro OH - Steel Vengeance PA - Talon (I've only been to Dorney so far. Don't judge ) SC - Afterburn TX - Iron Rattler VA - Intimidator 305 ON - Leviathan
  18. My rankings, with the year that I last visited: 1. Cedar Point (2019) - Don't really need to say anymore. 2. Kings Dominion (2017) - I keep going back and forth between 2 and 3. The loss of Volcano hurts, but I feel KI is lacking an elite coaster. for now. 3. Kings Island (2019) 4. Canada's Wonderland (2017) - The coasters are very top heavy, but the unique and wide collection of thrilling flat rides makes up for it. 5. Knott's Berry Farm (2019) - There is so much to explore in Ghost Town alone. Also, love the mix of Thrill and Family rides. 6. Carowinds (2018) - Great coasters at the top, but the park lacks a good supporting cast. 7. California's Great America (2019) - Solid coasters, and Mass Effect is a great dark ride. 8. Dorney Park (2018) - Not a bad park at all. But nothing at this park really stands out.
  19. ^Don't forget the CP&LE Railroad. You can just stay on the ride to minimize your queue-to-ride-duration ratio.
  20. Banshee. In a typical KI day for us, we always seem to start in Rivertown and work our way around the park to end in Action Zone.
