  1. That must be the "situation" that Claire keeps referring to on the VelociCoaster brake run...
  2. Come to think of it, that's actually a lot of train bumps in the Cedar Fair chain in recent years. Vengeance, Valravn, and Shivering Timbers also come to mind.
  3. So were any of the operators who were working at the time of the accident aware of the adjusted seats beforehand, or did the victim just coincidentally choose one of them? Either way, terribly unfortunate.
  4. ^^Yeah honestly, as fun of a ride as Pantheon is, the amount of downtime I've heard about/experienced when I was there has been somewhat disappointing so far. Not to mention the ridiculous glasses policy lol. But thankfully the park is beautiful enough where you don't really need to be riding all day, the scenery and atmosphere are pleasing enough on their own.
  5. Piggybacking off several points made above: - If you want to ride all the coasters, Cheetah Hunt and Cobra’s Curse MUST be ridden first, as both are very popular and low capacity - Yes, there are usually staggered openings for a lot of rides in the back of the park, like Kumba, Falcon’s Fury, etc. Not sure if this holds true on weekends, though - I will also recommend Twisted Tails (pretzel place), those things are absolute fire
  6. Interesting, I was put off by the glasses policy as well, although to be fair I always have contacts in and ride with non-prescription sunglasses. It was strange being asked to put them in the bins for a ride that doesn't cross over any guest walkways, but good to hear that they explained the situation to you at least. But if they're not allowed on Pantheon, then why isn't it a problem on VelociCoaster, Maverick, Taron, etc.
  7. I'm not the biggest fan of the free spins either, but lately I've been taking the approach of stapling myself to oblivion on them to prevent sliding around, and it's actually helped. Tumbili was an enjoyable ride.
  8. Yes, wait times are listed in the Dollywood app. Some of the ride entrances also have screens which list the wait times for all the major thrill rides (Mystery Mine and Tennessee Tornado come to mind, there might be more).
  9. Nah, no need to regret it. Watching enthusiasts wildly speculate over smoke and mirrors is almost as entertaining as the ride itself (talking about other websites, people here were pretty logical about it)
  10. Maybe it's just an elaborate April Fools joke that he's starting 2 weeks in advance
  11. ^^^Maybe try looking at AirBNB? But yeah, if you're not sharing costs, it's generally much cheaper to stay in Orlando.
  12. ^ Is it appropriate to compare this upcoming summer to July 2020? That was when most parks had just reopened, social distance markers were being used in queues, trains were only loading half the available rows, and rides were being sanitized every half hour. There will still be some crowds in June/July but overall operations should be more efficient.
  13. It's really just a matter of being close to one of the "hubs," like Denver, Cleveland, Trenton, etc. for Frontier.
  14. Ice cream and crushed Oreos, actually Incredible amount of food, one of the very few times I haven't been able to finish my meal at a park (not because it tasted bad, but because it was huge)
  15. I was just at Fiesta Texas this past weekend, and there were several things that stood out to me: Staff were very friendly, probably more so than any other SF park I've been to They did a good job getting all the rides open, despite the colder-than-normal temperatures. The staff were saying that it needs to be around 55 degrees to open Poltergeist, it definitely didn't get that warm on Saturday but it still opened for the last hour. On Sunday, Goliath was getting maintenance for most of the day but it also opened for the last few hours. Plus the log flume was open both days which was a pleasant surprise You can get a $13 funnel cake as a snack on the dining plan, which seems like a ridiculously good value to me. Not sure if similar value is offered at any other parks in the chain I agree that Great Adventure or Magic Mountain have better ride lineups, but Fiesta Texas is a great visit during January/February when crowds are light.
  16. ^ That's pretty much what they did with Top Thrill Dragster back in the day
  17. ^ If you're the type of enthusiast who likes to do this type of thing, you could make it your 200th coaster
