  1. Yeah it looks like it was closed all day on the app, which is a bummer. Visiting the park on Tuesday and would hate to miss it.
  2. Does anyone know if Skyrush is still down after the lift hill issue at the beginning of the month? Or has it opened back up?
  3. Thank you! This has been super informative and I really appreciate it!
  4. Thank you for the insight! Did most of the major parks open in 2020? Do you have any recommendations for metropolitan areas just in case the parks aren't open? For example, if we were to visit a city with the intention of visiting the park, but the parks are closed, would Hamburg be better or Cologne? I think Europa is a bit remote to make alternative plans, unfortunately.
  5. Having been to Germany a couple times in the past, I have been to a lot of the major parks, but only in the summer. My partner and I are planning to go to Germany in October, but I have insisted that we go to at least one park while we are there. We are going to Berlin for most of the trip, but I know that there isn't much around Berlin in terms of theme parks. Since we will be there after Oktoberfest ends, does anyone have any suggestions about which parks would be the best to visit around the second or third week of October? Due to COVID, Phantasialand seems to be the only major park showing its calendar for the year. Europa, Heide, Hansa - None of them are showing their schedules for 2021. Any advice or guidance is greatly appreciated! Thank you,
  6. With all of the issues that topper track has been having, I am curious about how the topper track is holding up on Tremors? Anyone have any info on it?
  7. I remember reading about Great White and how it used to have a vastly different queue line with a large shark tank. Does anyone have any other information about this? I have tried finding pictures of it before, but haven't had much (any) luck. I know it is a pretty random question, but this kind of forgotten park history fascinates me.
  8. So with everything happening to Lightning Rod, how is Outlaw Run doing? Is it tracking well? Any issues with it? I rode it the first and second year of operation and thought it was absolutely amazing, but I wasn't sure if it had started to show its age?
  9. I may be in the minority here, but I feel like we are starting to see a lot of similarities between the RMC roller coasters. Personally, my favorite RMC is still NTAG and I was a huge fan of Twisted Timbers. I loved the three airtime hills on Twisted Timbers that felt more like El Toro than an RMC. I watched an NTAG pov last night just to see the differences 10 years makes. It is both impressive and crazy how much RMC has been able to push the boundaries. We all know that NTAG has great ejector airtime, but it definitely feels more drawn out. Like I said, I am probably in the minority, but I hope future RMC's focus less on the over banking in the second half of rides and more on sustained airtime.
  10. My partner and I are planning to go to SFOT on Halloween, but concerned it might be crazy busy. Anyone have any experience with the park on Halloween?
  11. Very interesting TR! I found the look at the Italian Trapeze ride really odd. Do they build a separate canopy over the ride for the off season?
  12. For the virtual queue sign up, I have my partners account linked to mine. Once at the park, can both of us try to get a boarding group for our party, or just one of us?
  13. Thank you for the tips! Saw some reports that Rise was struck by lighting. Has anyone heard anything about that or the potential downtime?
  14. We are going to Hollywood studios on the 18th, MK on the 19th, IOA the 20th, and AK on the 21st. We are staying at the JW Marriott on the WDW property. Figured it was a good option since it’s brand new and still has on site transportation.
  15. I am taking my partner to WDW in two weeks and he is a HUGE Star Wars fan. We both agree that getting on Rise of the Resistance is the #1 priority for the entire trip. With the current situation at the parks, how has the virtual queue looking? Any tips from regulars on the best way to get on the ride? Has it been experiencing lots of downtime? It’s been about 10-15 years since my last visit to WDW and it’s my partner’s first visit ever, so any tips are greatly appreciated.
  16. Kind of a random question, but how many trains does Green Lantern have? RCDB lists three, but it only had two trains at Kentucky Kingdom. Did they buy an extra train? Maybe some SFGAdv locals can give some insight.
  17. I saw that Mt. Olympus is going to be opening a slide wheel from White Water next year. Honestly, it is the most terrifying thing I have heard in a long time. Not the slide itself; just that it is going to be AT Mt. Olympus.
  18. How should the crowds be this weekend? How will tomorrow be compared to Sunday or Monday? I know it is a holiday weekend, but hopefully it won't be too bad. Does Cannibal have a single rider line?
  19. The bulky support system looks a little odd to me, but I LOVE the layout and shaping so far!
  20. It was Intamin. All of the rides have some form of scenery, but it's how the ride interacts with the scenery that makes it so impressive.
  21. I wonder if Kanonen would be retrofitted to use LSMs since they are more efficient and reliable than the hydraulic launch.
  22. Every ride manufacturer has problems now and then with things, and just because one ride has them, doesn't mean every one manufactured does or will. It's always better to be safe and keep an eye on things, like Lagoon does. I don't believe I've ever heard anyone call Jet Star 2 rough. I love Jet Star 2 because it's got a little bit of everything.....pop of air on the first drop, great g forces, disorientating, carousels, and the reduction brake is the exclamation point. Lagoon spends money on Jet Star 2 because the Ride still has plenty of riders, and the dual loading has made it more efficient. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk The whole decision to use AC motors has caused so many problems. As for Jet Star 2, it needs to go. It's rough and it's space could be better used. Lagoon has done a great job of taking standard rides and theming them, but the presence of carnival rides or rides that aren't built with permanent footers just looks tacky. Lagoon is better than that. If they want to become a more premier park, they need to start phasing out the eyesores of the park (the enterprise, Jet Star 2, several kiddy land rides, Wild Mouse, Scrambler, and the paratrooper).
  23. I'll be visiting Knott's next Tuesday (March 15th). How crowded will it likely be? Will FastLane be necessary?
  24. I have found that Gerstlauer's rides are only as smooth as the car wants it to be. It definitely varies from car to car. Euro-fighters are substantially rougher than the new infinity coasters too. They're making progress, but they need to improve the consistency of the ride experience.
