  1. Hey all! I am planning a trip with my sister to San Antonio and we will be going to Seaworld San Antonio on Friday April 1. I was going ahead and buying tickets, parking, and seven seas badge but I was curious if it’s necessary to buy quick que unlimited for this day. We plan to arrive after opening a few hours to avoid the rush into the park. With that said…I was curious if any of you veterans of this park have any insight as to what lines are like on a Friday in early April. Looks like the weather will be nice. Any and all suggestions are welcomed!
  2. Has anyone heard any updates about Jersey Devil Coaster or El Toro? I'll be at the park this Friday. I hope they both aren't closed!
  3. Yeah for 2 people for Platinum Flash Pass (single day) is $270.00 for Friday July 16th...Seems pricey. Curious if anyone has any good information how I should start the day there? I have no recollection of the park's layout bc I have only been here one time. What's a good game plan to go with at this park? I am going to splurge and get the Platinum Flash Pass just so I feel like we can get multiple rides on certain coasters. Interested in how operations are here too? Any info helps! I definitely want to ride Kingda Ka (multiple times), Batman, Jersey Devil Coaster (multiple times), El Toro (multiple times), Zumanjaro, Bizarro, Nitro (multiple times), Dark Knight Coaster, Justice League, Skyscreamer, Vekoma Madhouse, Joker, Skull Mountain, Wonder Woman, and the mine train, and maybe a few more. Not really interested in Green Lantern bc I rode it last time I was there, and it was more painful than anything. Also not interested in Superman bc I have ridden it a million times at Six Flags over Georgia, and Cyborg just looks vomit inducing to me.
  4. I am planning on going to this park Friday July 16th and was curious if I should just go ahead and purchase Platinum Flash pass. I have only been to this park once and it was 2014 so I am not sure what to expect on a Friday in July. The last time I went was while Zumanjaro was under construction so Kingda Ka was closed and Zumanjaro was not yet running. I want to be able to spend a lot of time on coasters and rides and don't want to waste my money buying platinum if I don't need to. I'd also take any other advice on navigating this park at opening and any other suggestions anyone has? THANKS!
  5. Does anyone know how busy SFOG has been lately? I was planning on going to Florida this week but landed on SFOG instead. I'm going to go on Tuesday Dec 29th. Should I go ahead and get Flash Pass?
  6. Thank you so much for the responses. I think I am going to just go for it at Busch Gardens and spring for the Quick Que Unlimited. I wanted to go to Universal a bit more but Busch is amazing as well and the prices for Express of Universal are outrageous. I understand that they can charge this because of the demand but almost $300 dollars a person is crazy! Do you have any tips on how to navigate Busch in Tampa? I have only been once and it was years ago. I want to surprise my boyfriend with a little fun after Christmas and I think he would love the Safari and Quick Que is a definite based on how busy it will be.
  7. I was thinking about going to Busch on Dec 29th and 30th which are a Tuesday and a Wednesday. Do you think fast passes will be necessary? I am deciding between Universal and Busch and would love any insight or tips!
  8. I was interested in going to Universal on Tuesday Dec 29th and Wednesday Dec 30th. I am not interested in going if it will be super packed. I checked their website and prices for fast passes are insanely high for those days?? Does anyone have any insight on the price being so high? Do they expect huge crowds?
  9. I have a feeling the will be sold off in parts. Possibly both Busch Parks being sold together. Who knows. I don't know that Seas can make it.
  10. Hey everyone! I am curious if anyone has suggestions about the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area. I went to Dollywood the last two years and my friends and I wanted to do other things in the area. I am interested in the Mountain Monster thrill tower, white water rafting, a mountain coaster, and many other things. We plan on hiking and whitewater rafting one day, going to this new waterpark called Soaky Mountain on another day, and we have a third day to do things. If anyone has any good suggestions of things that are off the beaten path or shouldn't be missed I would greatly appreciate hearing your thoughts!
  11. Hopefully the intamins will be sold to a park in North America. I mean I'd take a ten inversion Intamin at Carowinds anyday!
  12. I would say 1.5 days at Carowinds is plenty. I think 2.5 days there would be overkill at this point. With the way CF is taking Carowinds that will change but as of now 1.5 days will be plenty of time to do everything especially if you go on weekdays. With that said, Dollywood is going to be the closest park at about 3.5 hours away. I would definitely shorten your time at Carowinds and spend more time at Dollywood. If you have already been to Dollywood a lot, SFOG is about 4 hours away and is a great park too. Charlotte isn't really a mecca for great things to do tbh. I have been there many many times and it lacks for me. If I were you I would go to Carowinds for a day or day and a half, drive towards Dollywood or the other half of the second day and stay in a cabin in the woods for a few days and do Dollywood/mountain excursions. Pigeon Forge is the definition of touristy. Its as flashy and cheesy as it comes. It's basically Myrtle Beach in the Mountains. I like to get out of that area for a bit and actually see the beautiful nature around the area and go for hikes/waterfall watching etc. Quick google searches will find you plenty of things to do near Dollywood that will be way more worth your time than spending to much time in Charlotte.
  13. Its awesome they have already painted Georgia Scorcher and are now repainting Goliath and possibly Superman! Next year will not be spectacular considering the rides that are being installed, but I appreciate parks spending money on things that do make the overall experience better. A freshly painted Scorcher and Goliath are going to look fantastic at the front of the park. Now, if they would just bulldoze Blue Hawk and add a badass launcher SFOG could very well be a destination park in the South East.
  14. I would be happy getting a ride on each coaster once or twice. So hopefully Flash pass won't be needed. With that said, is there a particular strategy to conquering this park? I am definitely looking forward to Wonder Woman, Joker, Poltergeist, IR, Batman, and Superman. I haven't ridden one of this massive pendulum swings or a S&S Free spin so those will be fun hopefully. I also have not ridden a Raptor so there are a lot of firsts. My only RMC so far has been Lightning Rod so IR will likely be a new experience as well. This park seems to have a lot to offer so I wanna be prepared!
  15. Ok great thanks for the information Bert. Do you have any other tips or tricks that might be helpful. I am surprised to hear the park might be busy on a Sunday in January but I suppose that is why they decided to open year round.
  16. Idk I think pepsi is better than coke. I also prefer Diet Pepsi over all other diet sodas. It has a much much better bite to it than Diet Coke. Diet Coke tastes terrible to me.
  17. I am going here in January. The only days I can make it work to go are Saturday January 11th or Sunday January 12th. I am wondering if any of you Texas locals or others who are familiar with the park can give me any advice? Is this the first year Fiesta Texas is running year long? Do you think I will need a flash pass on either of these days? Any advice is welcome! This will be a first time for me at this park.
  18. ^^^Yeah Scarowinds was really disappointing this year. I probably won't go again and I'll save up for Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando next year.
  19. I am really excited for this coaster too! Not gonna lie though I kinda miss the old Intamin track.
  20. My original comment was based on the fact they were lucky to survive their bankruptcy, and I don't think they going forward this will be a good move for them. I think it would most likely cause them to go down the same road as before. I never said they haven't been profitable lately. I am glad they are, but taking over cedar fair at the price of 3.5 billion (lowered with stock value) would most definitely hurt them in the long run in my opinion.
