  1. It was down for the entire 2020 season and hasn't opened yet this season - I've only visited once but my understanding was that they had a safety incident that caused the ride to shutdown, but I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong. They had trains on the tracks with water dummies so hopefully it opens again soon, it was a huge bummer to miss it!
  2. It's clearly going to Six Flags St. Louis, I don't know what's "crackpot" about that prediction /s
  3. Not only could SFSTL boast having 3 wooden coasters, but they could have 2 Boomerangs too! In all seriousness, it doesn't seem to really fill a lot of holes in the lineup given that the park already has an invert and a boomerang, and all I've heard about it is that it's a fairly rough experience. I don't think it makes a ton of sense to move it to STL, especially since the smaller parks in the chain could probably benefit from it more.
  4. Hi all! My friend and I made our first ever visit to Hersheypark this Saturday and had a blast. Thanks so much to everyone that gave us advice on how to make the most of our day - we rope dropped Fahrenheit and got in 2 walk-on rides and managed to get the Laff Track credit before the lines got longer than 15 min. The park was definitely very busy, and most of the major rides got up to a 1-2 hour wait during the day per the app, although it seemed like the app was most overestimating wait times. A couple bits of news for folks: - Lightning Racer (Left) was open and ran pretty well fo
  5. Thanks so much for the help, everyone! We've got everything booked for Saturday (and I need Sunday to do school work) so we won't be able to take advantage of the preview days, but it sounds like we'll be rushing back to Fahrenheit and Laff Trak first before hitting everything else. If we see Skyrush/Candymonium with really short lines we'll head there early too. Looking forward to my first visit and I'll report back on how crowds are!
  6. Hi folks! A friend and I are looking to drive up from DC this Saturday to make our first ever trip to Hersheypark! We're trying to take advantage of the April operating hours while the weather isn't blisteringly hot and the crowds aren't too bad, but I know the park is always busy all year so I was hoping to get some advice for a first-time visitor. 1) Should we get the Fast Track? It's $100 for the unlimited this Saturday, and while that's pretty steep to me, it might be worth it if I should expect every line to be at least an hour long all day. 2) Does the park tend to empty o
  7. Quick TR from my first visit to the park: A friend and I made the drive up from DC to visit Great Adventure for the first time this Friday! It was overcast and in the 50s for most of the day, and some light rain in the early afternoon seemed to keep most of the crowds away. There were no lines for most of the day except from 1-4pm, but after the rain the park pretty much emptied out. The park was definitely understaffed, with all of the coasters operating with 3-4 ride ops - even then, Superman didn't open until around 5pm and the park never opened Bizarro due to staffing (per some of the
  8. This is great news, thanks for sharing! Looks like I'll be making my first trip to the park on Friday.
  9. Thanks! Was looking at visiting this Friday - we'll play it by ear but I've never been and it's a bit of a hike for me, so I might wait until it's confirmed to be open for the year.
  10. I just checked the website and they have El Toro listed as temporarily closed. Is it normally closed earlier in the season because of colder weather or do we think it's a maintenance/staffing issue?
  11. Thanks all for your help! We're going to avoid this group and head up to the park on Friday.
  12. Hey all! Was planning to swing up to the park from DC this week (either Tuesday or Friday) for the first time. Does anyone have a sense of how busy the park will be or how good early season ride operations are at the park?
  13. Hi all! I'm working in Kentucky through the end of the month and I'm looking at going to Kentucky Kingdom on opening day. I've never been to the park before, so I was curious if anyone had thoughts on how bad the crowds might be and how well their operations will be (especially on the coasters) with social distancing restrictions cutting down ride capacity.
  14. I'm a DC college student looking to take a trip down to KD soon, maybe tomorrow. I've never been before and I don't have a season pass - that combined with a ZipCar rental can make the trip there a little pricey for me. I'd like to be able to ride all the coasters in a day when I go, will it be possible to do that on a Sunday?
