Do they still have to be in the USA? Most of the one's I've ridden lately in Asia, even the ones without lap bars, man just the station. Pretty much all the places people would have been are just replaced with CCTV cameras and loud speakers reminding people to not stand up or even just a single sign at the top of the drops.

Dorney changed their rapids ride to be like that a few years ago. Instead of people sitting on raised chairs throughout the ride there is one person near the lift in a building watching all the screens and a recording every minute or so repeating safety warnings throughout the ride.

^Nice! If there's one thing to be lax about, it's rapids rides.

Panda Express isnt too far away either.

Nothing is as good as a hot day of walking, like MSG and sodium.

 

I hope the new place offers something decent and has a patio. Booze is a given, in my request.

Yeah. It was a great spot, aside from that fucking hillbilly fortune telling machine talking shit all night.

That fortune telling machine is insane and does. not. stop. I worked there this summer and I would be in the park on off days. It was always so peaceful feeding the carp until that fortune machine went off! So loud too.

Yes, please, keep the crowds distracted from Famous Dave's and Melt! Unless either of those two have a steep decline in quality I am happy to keep exclusively eating at Famous Dave's, Melt, and the Thirsty Pony (aka the Holy Trinity) when in Sandusky 😇.

I would consider the Holy Trinity to be Famous Dave's, Backbeat and Mac Shack. Thirsty Pony a close 4th :)

Yeah Pony did raise the prices some but that's kinda the norm lately with meat prices higher.

Backbeat was good, but 4 slices of brisket for $16? 

 

Same thing across all CF parks, I think.  Kings Dominion's Mac Bowl was charging $15 for one scoop of mac & cheese this year when in 2019 it was $12 for two (if not three) scoops.

Anyone think the Ferris wheel might be moved to Frontier Town? That would open up more space on the Wicked Twister midway 

I think part of the appeal is being next to the beach. It wouldn't offer nearly the same experience in Frontier Town.

True, but it wasn't always there....it used to be on the other side of the peninsula where Millennium's queue line is now.  On that side all you had was views of the Marina and Famous Dave's....maybe the move was a downgrade haha.

EDIT:  Nevermind, it wasn't Famous Dave's back then.

Bye Wicked Twister! Something tells me relocation definitely isn't in your future...

 

Tony Clark told everyone in the fall it wasnt being relocated.
