YEAH! This is my 100th post!

 

Welcome to TPR, hauntmaniac. I just wanted everyone to know, this is NOT my BF, HAUNTMANIAC, from CWMania, who was, unjustly, kicked off this site a few years ago.

 

Gear, do not write off HALLOWEEN HAUNT because of your experience this year. I will tell you a better way to experience HALLOWEEN HAUNT. A proven method that my BF and I have been using for years now.

 

First, NEVER go on the last 2 Saturdays as they are the busiest.

Second, if you arrive at the parking lot at 7:00PM on the last 2 Saturdays, forget about getting in before 7:30PM

The third thing is, when you go to HAUNT, you should pick if you are going on rides or going in the mazes. You can't do both.

 

So, now for some real tips. First, do yourself a favour and buy a 5:30PM meal. This will get you an all-you-can-eat meal for $14 bucks and it will get you in to 2 mazes at 6:30PM, a half hour before HAUNT opens to the public. Then all you have to do, is go around the park counter-clockwise, with little or very few stops for rides. This will keep you a half hour ahead of the public for the entire night. With this plan, you will even have time for the show in the theatre, witch was a HUGE improvement this year. My BF and I stick to this plan every year. So, we usually go on the first 2 weekends or on the last 2 Sundays and always with a 5:30PM meal. Try this method next year, Gear, I promise, you will have a much better experience at HALLOWEEN HAUNT.

 

You can also PM me if you want any more tips.

 

I will be posting my TR, for HALLOWEEN HAUNT this year, very, very soon.

 

PATTYCAKES.

While not unbearable, I thought Dragon Fire was one of the rougher arrows I've ridden. It's not even the smoothest or best Arrow in it's own park.

 

As Arrow loopers go, it doesn't even belong in the same conversation as rides like Tennessee Tornado and Loch Ness Monster. Hell there are a ton of arrow loopers I'd consider to be much smoother, including Dragon Mountain a little over an hour to the south.

Hey IMHO it's the smoothest Arrow looper I've ridden. The corkscrew at MIA and CP are both rougher. But that's because those are the only ones I wrode. And yeah I'm only talk about loopers, because their non-inverting rides are all over the place (Magnum vs vortex and iron dragon isn't really a fair comparison lol). Anyway one of the best texts I got from a friend this summer was "Arrow actually made a really smooth coaster!!!". They sent it after they rode Tennessee Tornado.

^Hey, they're doing what they can, considering their competition is.... La Ronde.

 

 

And any other park across the border, over there. So they're trying all sorts of coasters.

Give them credit for at least working on staying current. Even if some of them, I too, would

not even consider re-riding, i.e SLC and that ugh Volare.

^I think another intamin coaster or inverting B&M should be coming first before an rmc. But id rather have something creative done of the MCM for an ibox than a new ground up coaster.

 

And by another Intamin, you mean their first? Definitely. The world needs more Intamin. I haven't been to the park in 12 years, I need to get back there soon but an Intamin would have me planning a trip right now!

^^You have no idea how fast I'd rip out Flight Deck and Time Warp for a B&M. They're taking up a huge amount of room right next to eachother and they could easily be relocated to parks that don't know any better as new additions (Possibly Valleyfair for Flight Deck and MA for Time Warp).
