  1. Definitely:

    Universal Studios Florida

    Islands of Adventure

    Kings Island

    Cedar Point

    Knott's Berry Farm


    Disney's California Adventure

    Magic Mountain

    Santa Cruz Boardwalk

    California's Great America

    Discovery Kingdom



    Sea World San Diego

    Belmont Park


    Aaand not much else, as those trips to FL and CA are pretty much killing my vacation budget for 2019 (both money and time-off from work)

  2. I'll look into those. I should also mention that I was considering Wonderland or Kennywood, but not sure if there are other parks near them worth checking out

    You could bundle Kennywood with Cedar Point (Waldameer as well). Then, after KI gets their new coaster, you could do a trip with KI, KK, and HW.

  3. Thought I was finished riding new coasters for the season, but I had a last-minute business trip to Houston and was able to get down to Kemah for the Boardwalk Bullet.


    Fun little coaster. Some decent laterals and pretty okay airtime. About what I expected from a small Gravity Group coaster. I only rode it twice - once in front and once in back, and went on with my day. I was moderately stapled in the back row, so the airtime may actually be better than I experienced.

  4. Hello,

    I'm looking for motivation and support. I'm going to lose about 80 pounds. Portion control (weight watchers) and walking.


    Some of those coaster restraints were mighty tight this year. I could ride everything, but I'm on the verge of having to do a walk of shame.


    So that's my motivation. We're planning a California trip for June and I don't want to miss out on any coasters because I probably won't be back for a long time.



  5. Hey all,


    Visiting St Louis from the 3rd-8th for an industry conference and will no doubt visit the City Museum and perhaps the Arch.

    My question: is it worth the drive to Branson for a Monday at SDC? What are crowds like this time of year?

    It'd probably be a daylong/half day visit...



    Crowds will be very low on Monday the 8th. You might be the only one there. https://www.silverdollarcity.com/theme-park/Calendar


    The moose out front should have told you!

  6. I was there last Saturday (9/22) and the park was moderately crowded, but we also had FLP so it wasn't bad. Steel Vengeance was 30-45. Maverick was 20-30 most of the day. As mentioned above, Millennium Force was 15-20, because of where the FL line merges. All of the other major coasters were less than 15.


    You shouldn't have a problem riding whatever you want.


    We also popped in briefly on Friday night. In 2.5 hours we were able to eat dinner and ride Steel Vengeance, Maverick, and Millennium Force. Not bad.

  7. KI is my home park and I typically rode Firehawk about once a year. I enjoy the ride, and I think it's fun and relatively smooth. The vertical loop was a lot of fun in that the movement was the opposite of the B&M Pretzel Loops and gave negative G's at the top, as opposed to high positive G's at the bottom of a Pretzel Loop. It's just not worth it for the lines that this thing gets. I laughed when this was added to the FLP, but I understand that decision was likely based on wait times.


    If the 2020 B&M is a Flyer, I look forward to the mutiny on social media.
