Great advice, guys. I really appreciate it. Seems like solid tips without a set in stone playbook. I'm looking a lot more forward to Hershey after your input.

Sounds like Knoebels will be hat day, since from the sounds of it seems like they generally let you do whatever the hell you want!

On the hat note, there are bag drops at every ride that would one (coasters, the towers, swings, etc). However in The Hollow and at Reese's Extreme they require you to get a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo. The good news is it's free for 2 hours. The bad news is, if the attendants at SDL and Comet are enforcing it, you might have to work the system a little in order to not have to pay. Just watch your time oin that area. While on the topic of fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo, when you hit up Skyrush do not take anything at all on that ride that you value in any way. Phone, hat, wallet, necklace, spare change. It will get ripped out of pockets and out grin under your rear. There was a teen girl on Monday when I rode. She managed to slip her phone past the ops somehow. When we got off she hopped out of the seat, looked down, and lost her mind when she realized that the phone was gone. Even if they staple you in the seat, you will lose anything that isn't physically attached to you.

That happened to me when I went to Six Flags Great Adventure six (!!!) years ago. I was afraid that the phone of the woman who rode next to me on El Toro would come out and smack me in the face Fabio-style.

Yup. First two rides on Skyrush on Wednesday, no problems because there were maybe about eight people on the train. Third ride, they started letting everyone in, train filled up, and sure enough on one of the airtime hills I see a phone go sailing overhead. Never fails.

I definitely see why more parks are moving to a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo system. I've seen a lot of snapchats recorded on the map function of POVs on roller coasters and the other day at BGW I saw this kid go down the drop on Le Scoot with his phone out. I was watching a map snap that was inside of Escape from Pompeii and an employee came on the loudspeaker to put the phone away. Now I am getting worried on some rides somebody's giant Samsung Galaxy might hit me in the face. :roll:

I have actually been hit in the forehead by coin or two on one of nitro's airtime hills. It wasn't pleasant, but at least it was just one and not all the six or seven the flew out of this guy's pocket.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

Assuming it’s a baseball cap, just bring an adjustable one. 99% of parks let you put your hand through it where the adjustable strap is. It’s not going anywhere when you do that.

If there are bins I usually just put whatever crap Brit wants me to hold inside the hat like a bucket and then put her hat on top of it. It’s a loose article sandwich. :lol:


at CP, we just put them down the front of our shirts.

Would a B&M wing coaster be a possibility?

I think a flyer or 4D coaster will come first.
