  1. From now on, every one of my posts will be in BRIGHT YELLOW TEXT. All joking aside, the update is welcomed by me! Hopefully it will make people more receptive to joining.
  2. You've got to be kidding me. I don't want to get my hopes up, but this could be seriously awesome. One of the first things I think of this flat is the horn at Kennywood, but I doubt that Knoebels would keep that feature if this pans out.
  3. Nice report! Are Nitro operations this year as good as they were last season?
  4. That was very thoughtful, InsaneCoasterJunkie. I can't wait for the day when when we see Waldameer expanding again. Right now, though, I'll just be happy if they decide to open next year.
  5. Can't you still get pierogis at the Round Stand in front of the Haunted Mansion?
  6. Oh well, I guess it makes since with most parks not looking for the "next big thing" to buy this year. The cost to plan an exhibit, transport it, and set it up and tear it down wouldn't be worth the return on investment. I'm not sure if government restrictions played into this choice or not. After Chance, GCI, Larson, and Premier stepped down, I'm sure that they really started thinking if it was worthwhile to try and hold it. I'll miss the pictures and video this November.
  7. I don't want this to become the main discussion thread for La Feria, but I thought I'd share this listing of Cascabel (Kennywood's former Laser Loop). https://www.usedrides.com/rides/217016?fbclid=IwAR06NCkg25gu-uMcmEqdyxkIk5G4AqY9z7Zm1Av3UFrs7kOigUTnLHkHtYw I haven't looked to see if there are any other rides from this park listed. 490k. For a forty year old coaster. With a flywheel launch.
  8. My experience with waits on an August weekday: Maverick was 30 minutes. Millennium Force was a walk-on. TTD was 20 minutes. Steel Vengeance was an hour at most. Non-access pass coasters were all 15-25 minutes. I guess that I just lucked out... anyhow, thanks for the report! I'm glad that you still had a fun time given the circumstances.
  9. Gotta love how the webcams are changed during the season. Right now you've got a view of the Marina with Valravn, Raptor, and Blue Streak in the corner as well as a view of just the launch track of TTD with 75% of the Iron Dragon layout and a lot of Rougarou. Interesting choices.
  10. Man, I do love Twister... and Phoenix... so much. Twister is for when you feel up for a great dose of wooden coaster intensity, but it's nice to know that Phoenix will always be right there if you want to take a "break" from the laterals. Knoebels really does go for quality over quantity, and I enjoyed the SFA report too! I will have to go there one day just for the experience and because it's really not that far away.
  11. Without Fastlane two days ago, I managed to ride Steel Vengeance four times (twice with a pass), Maverick twice, Millennium Force twice, and Top Thrill Dragster twice. I also did Gemini, Raptor, GateKeeper, Tiki Twirl, Valravn, Magnum, and Cedar Downs. The only thing I'm bummed that I missed out on was the Sky Ride! The main reason I was able to ride so much was thanks to my mom, who was really nice and went around and got passes for me in the morning while I waited in the SV standby queue. So you'll get the best experience this year if you visit with someone who doesn't want to ride anything
  12. I did enjoy Wildcat when I rode it... in 2016... at 12 years old. I also find it hard to like Lightning Racer. The dueling is the best part, but even with that, I don't find it to be a great wooden coaster. Man, after reading all of these reviews I wish that I had gotten another ride on Candymonium! But I did enjoy myself more at Knoebels that same day, so what's a guy to do?
  13. ^ Nope, but it is definitely on my bucket list and from what people here have said, I expect that I'll enjoy it when I eventually visit. I didn't want to try to squeeze too much into one day with the virus procedures in place and have no qualms about waiting a bit to go there!
  14. Thanks for reading!!! You're right; a wall of words is monotonous, and all pictures can be too easy to scroll through.
  15. Just a random thought - isn't it kind of cool how Orion and Diamondback are on the same sides of the park as the Racer track that shares their color? (blue east, red west)
