TECHNICALLY Darien Lake and Fantasy Island as I own passes for 2019... Silver Comet is a top tier coaster that gets overlooked.


Comet has held up like a champ with regular re-tracking! It'll celebrate 20 years this season.

1. Name 3 of your favorite roller coasters, but not your top 3.

Batman: The Ride at SFFT. Love the flippy-doos.
Manta at SeaWorld San Diego. One of the best crowd pleasers out there.
Space Fantasy. Because ducking fuh.

2. About how many different parks did you visit in 2018?

3. Which 2018 park visit was your favorite?

Well, I only visited Knott's and I only did it twice, both for Scary Farm. So, you know, one of those.

4. Your favorite 2018 park addition (ride, food, show, etc)?

The Depths haunt at Scary Farm.

5. What ride exceeded your expectations the most in 2018?

Ghost Rider. When I last rode it after the renovation I found it to be fun but not nearly as intense as it used to be. It has broken in BIG TIME since then. Riding it during Scary Farm was insane. It screams through the course and has forces out the yin yang!

Not really sure. Olympia Looping jumps to mind.

Maxx Force sounds pretty cool if it can actually live up to the announcement. I still doubt that 60mph barrel roll will happen after Maverick's shenanigans.

13. Name the first totally middle-of-the-road (not bad/not great) park that comes to mind.

Parc Asterix.

14. You're in Orlando and magically have a 1-hour ERT session on 1 coaster of your choice at any park in the city. You choose...

Space Mountain. No question.

King's Dominion. They have I305.

27. What is your home park and give us two good reasons why we should pay it a visit.

The Adventuredome, and I can't in good faith ever recommend anyone visit.
