  1. Robb got one but I forgot to ask for one on my phone in the moment. I was hoping to see them later in the day but we didn't run into each other again
  2. Went to Knott's for the first time yesterday and really enjoyed myself. I love the atmosphere and the food is amazing. Ride operations left a bit to be desired but I had Fast Lane so this wasn't a huge issue. I met the Alveys in the morning by Ghost Rider which was really cool. Robb, if you see this, this is Josh My ride count went like this Ghost Rider - x2 Sierra Sidewinder - x1 Montezooma's Revenge - x1 Xcelerator - x5 Supreme Scream - x1 Pony Express - x1 Coast Rider - x1 Silver Bullet - x2 Jaguar - x1 Xcelerator was everything I hoped it would be. Incredible launch, amazing top hat, breathtaking speed, and forceful turns. I had a big smile after all 5 laps and every time I passed by the entrance I had to take it for another ride. I can't decide if the front or back seats were better, both were just awesome. Ghost Rider was a little underwhelming at 10 AM in row 2, but a second ride later in the day in the back was excellent. As relentless as it is, I was shocked by how smooth it ran. The airtime and laterals are unforgettable and I wish I got a third ride in. My favorite coaster type is the B&M invert and for years I've been told that Silver Bullet is one of the weakest, but after two back seat rides I'm at a loss for why. I wouldn't compare it to the likes of Montu or Nemesis, but this was forceful in every element. I grayed out multiple times and by the end I was left more disoriented than I have been on most Batman clones. Overall this is one of the more underrated coasters I've ridden; it was draining and I loved it. Montezooma's Revenge was a lot of fun and I wish I rode it a second time. The launch was better than i expected and I love a good Schwarzkopf vertical loop. HangTime was closed for maintenance so hopefully I'll ride it whenever my second visit is. Sierra Sidewinder was a fun little ride, Jaguar was okay but I'm 6'3" so I had to shoehorn myself in, and Pony Express was interesting but there isn't a whole lot too it. Coast Rider was the only ride I really disliked. The shin guards left marks and this is the rare occasion of a wild mouse that I wish was more trimmed. At least I didn't wait in a long line for it. Some of my favorite photos I took:
  3. ^ My thoughts as well. The decision up to the state, of course, but it doesn't really make sense.
  4. Haven't been on the forum in quite a while, good to be back right as the new website style is introduced! I went to Six Flags St. Louis in late July and the last thing I rode was Boss. It was running pretty good and my friend's 300th credit as an added bonus!
  5. In order of when I first rode -Ragin' Cajun at Six Flags Great America: It was fun those few rides I got when I was like 9-10, though Reverchons generally aren't good rides so I'm not really jonesing to get back to it. -Dragon Challenge (both sides) at Islands of Adventure: God, reminding me of this ride is one hell of a way to bring down my mood. A front row ride I got on Chinese Fireball back in 2015 is still one of my fondest "early" coaster memories -Georgia Cyclone at Six Flags Over Georgia: Only one ride on it, but what a horrible experience that was. Still one of the most painful and shitty, yet slow wooden coasters I've ridden to date. -Mean Streak at Cedar Point: Don't know if I miss it per se, but it wasn't as bad as the entire enthusiast community made it out to be over the years. Rough, yes for sure, but nothing brutal, and I've ridden worse woodies. -Firehawk at Kings Island: Not necessarily sad about it but another ride would've been fun. I enjoyed it more than Superman at my home park. -Vortex at Kings Island: Lol good riddance. -Green Lantern at Six Flags Magic Mountain: Fuck this ride. Hopefully it goes back to its prime form in Montreal. -Dragon Wagon at Indiana Beach: It was a kiddie coaster. -Dragon at Adventureland: I will miss this one. I enjoyed it more than most, but found it to be very intense and not all that rough aside from a consistent, but not bad shaking.
  6. Sad to see that I'm one of the rare few that really liked Dragon. One of the most underrated coasters I've ridden I'd like to see a new gen Vekoma go there personally
  7. I hate to be this guy but... Blue Fall closed on March 31st. I'm not sure whether to consider this for good or just temporarily, but it is listed as "business closed." http://www.seaparadise.co.jp/28474/index.html EDIT - It's also off the list of attractions so, unfortunately, it might be for good.
  8. Yeah I actually enjoyed Dragon on my visit to Adventureland. Forceful, relatively smooth (except for the pre-lift) and quite fun. Ninja isn't terrible, but I don't enjoy riding it per se.
  9. Governor Greg Abbott is planning to re-open Texas soon: https://www.texastribune.org/2020/04/21/texas-reopening-task-force/ I wonder what this will mean for the theme parks.
  10. Old footage from early 2000s trips. Like just your park visits in general, not just specific rides. Although if there were specific rides, I'd like to see HyperSonic XLC, Batman and Robin: The Chiller, Viper at Six Flags Great Adventure, Shockwave at SFGAm, and some wacky European rides, just to name a few.
  11. Expedition GeForce, and I've ridden coasters like Lightning Rod, X2, Steel Vengeance, Voyage, etc. It's the perfect amount of everything. Ridiculous airtime, my favorite first drop, nice location, great pacing, all around intensity, it's just fantastic. Steel Vengeance is great too but very repetitive in the second half. Shoutout to Coaster at PNE however, deserves way more love.
  12. Great report, loved hearing all the ride reviews. Twisted Colossus running 1 train is insane; I get it probably wasn't super busy but for such a long ride that's crazy.
  13. Love it! I agree, Nemesis is still a fantastic ride and the best in the United Kingdom even today.
