P.. 420: Pirates of Speelunker Cave announced for 2022!

Recommended Posts

You may wish to add La Vorba (Bobsleds) to that list/ Not many Parks have one...

 

in which case, that should be #1. . . on the way to NTAG.

 

folks think Wild Mouse load slow. . just wait until you're in line for La Vibora. . .

 

get on it first thing in the morning, before there's an hour + wait.

It's definitely the easiest ride to get to in terms of distance from the park entrance. I love me some Vibora! But curse the long line.

Here's a question for you guys...

 

Has anyone called the line-jumper hotline to report line-jumpers? I got a survey for visiting the park and I suggested having a texting hotline to report line-jumpers... Last night - while in line for Titan - there had to have been 3 groups of kids that ducked under the beams to get to their group ahead.

 

While the line-jump hotline is a good idea, I just can't bring myself to call this thing while in line and verbally describe people out loud for everyone else to hear. But dang it I can't stand when people cut in line. It's so rude!

So NTAG first, then la Vibora, then Titan, then go over to mr freeze?

 

you'll pass right by La Vibora on the way to NTAG. .it's the first left when you enter the park.

 

I'd hop on La Vibora first. . knock it out, and then go to NTAG. Because even a short line on La Vibora will take at least 20-30 minutes, so try to grab it with NO line. . since NTAG moves much faster (and the crowd splits between Titan and NTAG near the entrance to those two anyways (so NTAG *will* have a line, but it will move faster).

 

So grit your teeth, and just do NTAG after La Vibora.

 

that's what I'd do.

 

(and having just ridden Flying Turns at Knobel's on Saturday, I'll say that La Vibora is a better ride )

I've never called it.

 

but I HAVE called out folks cutting in line and pointing the sign out to them. (about 50% of the time they sheepishly get out of line).

When people try to cut me in line. Especially if I see them coming, I put my leg up on the rail and stop them. When they give me an excuse like, "they're catching up to their friends ahead", I just calmly tell them that if those people ahead are truly their friends, then they will wait for them at the exit after they have ridden, and that they can wait in line like the rest of us. I find that usually when one person stands up, suddenly you will have several others that will also show their disapproval and call them out. Generally forcing those individuals to have to keep backing off until no one protests, or exiting the line completely.

 

I was at Kings Island one time waiting for SoB and texted the line jumper notification for a large group of kids that were cutting in line. I was texted back with, "Can you describe them?" I did, and a few minutes later several security guards and a supervisor were at the exit platform. They pulled the group aside as they exited the train. After a small conversation, and what looked like a lot of excuses and pointing, security escorted them off the platform and out of the park. Everyone in line was cheering as they all walked off. It was nice to see a park actually enforcing their policies.

 

Kudos to you KI!

Ok, so La Vibora first followed by NTAG. But heres a question. Should I then proceed to Titan or detour and hit up pandemonium and freeze, since those two are low capacity?

 

personally, I'd do Titan, as it's right next to NTAG, instead of crossing to the other corner of the park for Freeze.

 

but that's just me, as I'm lazy. . LOL. . and besides, I know that in going to Freeze, I'll pass right by Shockwave, and get in line for that anyways, so it would take me even longer to get to Freeze.

Which rides offer the best night rides? I'm thinking NTAG or Titan, but just in case I don't have time for both, which ones do you guys prefer?

 

Shockwave

^ You think every six flags park is getting some new coaster for 2015.

false. Not sure what on earth made you think that. Just because one my videos has the year "2015" in it, doesn't mean I actually believe it will happen. It's more of a way of titling it to refer to it as the next coaster each park will be getting, whenever that may be. But this isn't the place to discuss my channel. Feel free to post a comment about it on my channel, as opposed to on the TPR forums.

I could see an AquaTwist coming to SFOT. However, it'd be even better to see a new coaster. I know they aren't the best rides out there, but I feel a B&M Wing coaster would work well. X-Flight clone, anybody?

 

$50 for that! That's the best fit for them, especially since Six Flags loves doing clones.

What about Six Flags over Texas getting a clone of Superman: Ultimate Flight from Six Flags Discovery Kingdom?
