p. 792 - Camp Cedar campground to open in 2021!

Recommended Posts

Now I really need to make a trip to Ohio. Banshee looks great and I'm glad to hear everyone liked it!

 

I also find it interesting when parks leave old ride remains. I guess they use the station for haunted houses during Halloween Haunt, like KD does with Hypersonic's old station. One loss is another gain!

^I meant it was because it's a friday, but now I'm even more hopeful!

 

Good point since it is Good Friday, I would think tomorrow would be worse!

Haha, rain, Good Friday, and it's not Saturday!

Even though Good Friday might cause more families to come since they are off work and some schools are out.

^I've been hearing that it is just the right speed so that you do feel yourself "falling" but no so slow that it would become uncomfortable. I would still rather have a good old snappy corkscrew there, though

The chance of rain is 10% and looking out my window from my Mason compound it looks like a glorious day outside. Weather will not keep the crowds away. Friday and especially being Good Friday in a very Catholic city will keep the crowds away more than the 10% chance of rain. My family of 6 would be there today if it were a normal Friday. Love homeschooling.

 

PS spell check said I can't spell "very" "than" "window" and "today"

Looks like a really sweet layout, except that last twist at the end... Seems like the speed (or lack thereof) wod make the spin feel uncomfortable. (A la S:UF)

This was the only part of the ride that I didn't care much for although other people LOVED it, so go figure...

Everybody has their own opinion,It looks like something I might love, but I might also dis-like it who knows. Glad you had a great trip!

Here are a few photos and videos from last night. The quality isn't great, it's all from my phone. Had such a great time.

About 45 minutes in we were walking right up to the ride.

After the first hour they basically said to just pick whatever row. I have no clue where everyone disappeared to.

All these photos and videos are fantastic, thanks everyone. I'm excited to ride it sometime in the near future when I get the chance. The lighting looks awesome and the scream at the top of the lift is a nice touch.

 

It appears the trains enter the station quicker than on other inverts. It's this accurate or just my imagination? It looks like it'll help load as quickly as possible.
