  1. Many of the coasters the merge Points are all in different points in the queue. Most of the merge points on coasters lead mostly into the station, or stairs before the station. Joker's is my least favorite because you still have to wait 20 minutes because they merge you at the split point. But most of them are walk on or station wait, If you want to do JDC and Wonder women and skip that line I would recommend Platinum but JDC line moves quick and Wonder women I use my member Skip the line on it. (JDC has no Skip the line rn)
  2. I know you guys would get a laugh on this one. Someone at Kings Dominion had a bright idea to have 7pm fireworks when the park was closing, but funny thing is.... it was daylight outside.
  3. Construction is moving pretty quick for Lil' Devil (Rumored name for the coaster). Credit- Kyle Majkowski on Facebook.
  4. The poster did give us an update. They were on the block of 10 minutes, then maintenance forwarded the train into the station causing a collision. BTW they got a refund and they did call a lawyer.
  5. Shivering Timbers did bump. Credit to Cassie Villarreal on Facebook. "So FIRST ride is Shivering Timbers. Ride went fine but then we got stuck trying to get off. They literally SLAMMED us into the cart in front of us that hadn’t taken off. No apology except from the teenage employees working the ride. No medical check. They took our names and seat number and nothing else. No phone numbers or anything. They then just let us go. No compensation or anything for literally crashing us at probably 30mph into an object not moving at all. The metal and actual track broke from the impact. Michigan’s Adventure is a joke and needs to STEP UP."
  6. 1) I went a few years ago and parking wasn't bad. There is parking near Cyclone, We went with a payed parking location. I believe there is a couple of those nearby and we payed for a few hours. 2) You can DEF get your rides in within 4 hours, that's all you need I feel. 4) Deno's can DEF be done within an hour, maybe less 5) IDK about the single thing but I've heard sketch stuff from American Dream Employees.
  7. I've heard a couple stories of dummies' being ejected. You got the one at Playland's castaway cove, 2 dummies' were ejected and landed on a hotel roof. park laughed about it, and it's still safe. Dummies that "Blow Up" and have no legs are more prone to being ejected when water is loss. https://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/national-international/roller-coaster-test-dummies-fall-crash-ocean-city-jersey-shore-hotel-roof/200210/
  8. Concept art for the new Adventure Cove Splash Pad replacing Hook's Lagoon. https://www.sixflags.com/stlouis/attractions/adventure-cove
  9. I was their yesterday too. They were enforcing it on Justice League (Played an announcement if someone took their mask down) and on Dark Knight their was a security guard in the "Pre Show" room
  10. Adventure Cove will be a new complex! From batman you can tell they completely tore out the old play structure. All they left are the slides. From sky screamer you can see they put the old bucket in the graveyard.
  11. New in 2021! Adventure Cove Not much is known about this attraction at the time, but it will replace Hook's Lagoon Splash Pad.
  12. Here is the footage of Ka and Zumanojaro running together! (Credit to InsideGADV on Instagram) 98744305_777929572917322_147575271769706757_n.mp4
  13. Legoland NY will open for Preview's begging May 20th, the preview will be 7 days for 1st to play passholder's
  14. It's so eerie, I went president's weekend pre-covid to Nick Uni. (Only time I could go) and walking through the whole "Mall" and not seeing a single person was so weird. It didn't get busy till 1-2, I talked to other people and they were also disappointed about the whole place. (Selling cold food) I was all for this place to open and it flopped so hard. Was thinking on going again for Sandy but it's probably not worth it. I love to support places but American Dream is a no go. I would rather support a place like Casino Pier and Morey's
  15. Retention ponds I believe there called. Depending on what areas of the country you go to, you have them next to parking lots so the area doesn't flood and water runoff has a place to go. I've seen them a couple times at Walmart's, Hotel, Gated Communities, and other places. Their usually there when the area is very flat and get a lot of snow/rain
  16. Psycho Mouse is being repainted! Supports are brown and Green Track Credit goes to u/The_Gaming_Alapaca on reddit
  17. Does Rodeo still have the No Single Riders rule? When I visited a couple years ago, I ended up riding with the supervisor. I was pretty surprised with the no single rider rule, because the crazy Break Dance's in Europe don't even have that rule
  18. Surprisingly they had a campground called "King Waldorfs" that apparently got sold, stayed at it once it was alright. Good for the price and for a night in the camper, didn't do the pool. Mostly walked around Niagara. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g154998-d252849-Reviews-King_Waldorf_s-Niagara_Falls_Ontario.html
  19. If you think about if they put a section of the park indoors like Toverland, they can easily have it a year round park. Winter events in Canada have been pretty popular (Winterfest). It would also be tough competition for wonderland
  20. Looks like Marineland and the Town of Niagara is expanding Amusement Insiders posted a video talking about the expansion, here are some notes from that video The Town of Niagara is planning The town of Niagara said that Marineland is an important aspect for Niagara Falls Tourism and they're gonna rely on investing into the park and in such get the park to year round operation and all day fun Changing height limit in some areas from 10 stories to 30 stories Planning a people mover that connects all the Casinos and tourist attractions Marineland By 2031 Marineland will be a completely different park Planning an onsite hotel when the park goes year round and all day starting a rapid expansion plan and, "There are alot of attractions coming along with it." "There will a be a roller coaster that's going to fit in this expansion plan, sometime sooner that later." Will most likely receive city funding for the expansion The hotel will most likely be 10 stories with 150 rooms to 30 stories with 232 rooms (We don't know exactly but around there for height and rooms)
  21. Looks like American Dream is getting a couple new kiddie flat rides -We have a Zamperla Speedway that looks like a clone or similar to Zooma's Zoomer, a Paw Patrol ride at Movie Park Germany -According to someone from Reddit who went to Nick Uni (Photo is from him) he saw, "a mini jungle looking swing ride. It’s already put in place, just boxed off from everything. You can see it clear as day." Link for the Jungle swing comment Link to the photo of the new ride
  22. The thing is this isn't the first time the leg thing happened, there is a photo out there were a dude didn't have his legs secured in the restraint and the ride ops still dispatched the train onto the lift. Great Adventure employees are trained to kick the leg flaps, I also know Great Adventure was strict with cameras and he complained at that time, he also complained majorly (At that time) of the El Toro Locker Policy. I remember when his friend group went to Japan it was constant complaining about how the parks assigned seating and how Japanese parks did there own thing unlike the US. The one that made me stop watching him is on Phoenix he was really upset when the park was doing assigned seating and got a middle row and decided to fight to get back row (This was during the pandemic). He also got cancelled for other stuff, I hate how people like this guy is an influence in the coaster community, there are only a couple coaster youtubers that I have respect for. (Theme Park Crazy,El Toro Ryan) (Sorry for any spelling errors)
  23. Phoenix Coming to Deno's Wonder wheel park (Date/year not announced yet) In an interview with USA Today Deno “DJ” Vourderis, a third-generation member of the family that owns and operates the park announced Phoenix https://amp.usatoday.com/amp/3957029001?__twitter_impression=true This Vekoma Family Invert is 68 feet tall and travel at a speed of 34 mph. This family invert will deliver thrills, but it will be accessible to younger children and those who might be intimidated by bigger, faster rides. The name, Phoenix, represents the sensation of flight that the suspended coaster will deliver. Its trains will hang beneath the tracks, and passengers will soar through the course on floorless, ski lift-like cars with their feet dangling. But, according to Vourderis, the name also signifies rebirth Vourderis also Said, “When this (pandemic) is all over, I think we will have another Roaring '20s,” he says. “We will most certainly rise from the ashes and give birth to the best of times at Coney Island.” This coaster was intended for the parks 100th anniversary which has been delayed
