  1. ^ When I was there a year or so ago, Prowler was great! It only had 1 "pot hole" and I was prepared for it. I too rode it many times.
  2. ^ My mistake, you are correct. I was speaking of the FTC. The lady in charge is Lena Kahn. Sorry I got my letters confused...
  3. We'll see as you said. The lady that runs the DOJ is power crazy! She stopped the Microsoft / Activision merger. Microsoft had enough money to fight it in court and won. I honestly don't see a conflict myself. I'm really not sure how I feels about this merger. I think it will save me money possibly. I pay for: CF prestige and SF Diamond membership. I guess we'll find out in a few months.
  4. I don't think the DOJ will be an easy hurdle to overcome. I've said this from the beginning. It's not that the parks will compete, it's just DOJ doesn't like mergers period. We shall soon see. Cedar Fair is still saying this will be complete by the end of June.
  5. I'm glad to report you are incorrect. We get unlimited on TT2. See for yourself.
  6. ^ That doesn't' make sense. We paid the most of any level, and should get the best benefits. Spoken as a all season all park owner.
  7. I wonder how they'll implement this? Maybe they're going to Flash Pass which is electronic and in use at 6 Flags parks. You'll need to use your phone for this. I do this at Magic Mountain now. It controls the crowd flow unlike fast lane.
  8. ^ One thing I'd disagree with. Monte wasn't unpopular. It always had a line, and I definitely enjoyed it at the park. It has been and will be "sorely missed!"
  9. ^ Lately, (the past several months) ride ops have been good. Recently, they've closed Samurai summit which means Supe and Ninja are closed (18 other rides running). Without the wind issues, other rides have been open reliably. Now I hope I didn't just jinx myself. I'll be heading back to the Mountain later this week for some rides and HIP action.
  10. ^^^ All but 2 ticket booths have been demolished. That happened in November. It's now concrete. They have an additional inside show venue near Twisted Colossus. It hasn't been used in years. In the summer they used to have magic shows & amazing trampoline performances. It was air conditioned, so in the summer you could cool off and be entertained. This clearing has got to be something big - I hope. Nothing new was announced for the park for the 2024 season. Come on Santa bring us a giga!
  11. Well it's official! Something is "brewing at Magic Mountain. They've filed a permit to demolish the Golden Bear Theater on 12/5 with the city. Something big is going to happen. I'm guessing after Holiday in the park. I'm hoping for coaster #21! That would be a good Christmas present!...
  12. Here is the link to the reveal for the new TT2 trains with Tony and Zamperla from Cedar Point at IAAPA. Nothing was said about the lighting package in the video. I hope it has it too...
  13. ^ Let's see how long it lasts this time! I'll be there in less than 2 weeks. Now we need an announcement / progress on Monte!!!
  14. ^ I hear what you're saying, but this lady - Lina Khan who is chairman of the FTC is "drunk with power." I hope she stays out of it.
  15. Not sure if this applies to this situation. I just wonder if the government - FTC Federal Trade Commission will let this happen. They blocked many mergers as non competitive. For me this could be a good thing. I have both 6 Flags & Cedar Fair high end passes. We'll see what happens. I may save money.!
  16. ^ I asked that question when I was at the park in August. I was told he left by his own choice. I also got the comment that Coasterstock is very doubtful. in the future. He was a big part of that. He's recently been posting on Twitter. Nothing so far about the merger. I don't think he knew about this it that far in advance. He wasn't that "high up" to be privy to that.. Although, I'm sure it was in the works then. This has got to be one of the biggest well kept secrets...
  17. I was at Knotts today and noticed (from Supreme Scream) 5 or 6 new large wooden crates in the Xcelerator work area. One train is in the station, and the second one is disassembled. Let's hope these are parts to fix the ride so it can finally open, and not just "new stuff" for the train. Possibly encouraging news I hope. So sad to be there without Monte and Xcelerator.
  18. ^ I don't go for the haunt stuff. I'm there for the coasters....
  19. Glad to hear of their change of heart. I'll be there next weekend...
  20. ^ That's just happened recently. I'm guessing only 1 train ops? Probably just a Halloweekends thing. I've not experienced that this year.
  21. ^ This is according to another source. Sad developments... "So what has happened to Xcelerator at Knott’s Berry Farm? After many witness accounts of seeing crews on site, the ride making empty text runs, and crew members apparently being brought over for re-training ahead of reopening… all has gone SILENT. According to a source during testing an issue arose with one of the coaster’s brake units. Like any major theme park ride, there are redundant systems in place, so nothing bad happened and the train stopped as it should, but Knott’s is not going to reopen Xcelerator until it is 100% and now they are waiting on parts (once again) to fit the brake. This is obviously disappointing to everyone, Knott’s included, as they had been planning on having Xcelerator reopen intime for Knott’s Scary Farm and now clearly that isn’t happening." Also some other bad news about Knotts. They maybe giving up on the Monte project. I really hope that's wrong! I really miss that ride...
