1. Name 3 of your favorite roller coasters, but not your top 3.
I always enjoy my rides on Powder Keg at SDC as well as Timberwolf at Worlds of Fun, and Silver Bullet at Frontier City!

2. About how many different parks did you visit in 2018?
If i haven't forgot any, 6. I visited Worlds of Fun, Silver Dollar City, Frontier City, Cedar Point, Six Flags Over Texas, and Schlitterbahn KC.

3. Which 2018 park visit was your favorite?
Even though I got to hit up Cedar Point, visiting Silver Dollar City in march for Time Traveler's opening was a great time since the excitement and energy was high for Time Traveler and i got to hang out with some friends i hadn't seen in a while.

4. Your favorite 2018 park addition (ride, food, show, etc)?
Time Traveler was my favorite addition experience wise (I'm a theming guy, what can i say?) But if we're talking the ride itself, I'll have to say steel vengeance.

5. What ride exceeded your expectations the most in 2018?
Magnum at Cedar Point.

6. Best meal/food at a park in 2018?
I really enjoyed the new BBQ place at Cedar Point. I cant remember the name, but the brisket and sides were all incredibly delicious.

7. What was your favorite new coaster of 2018 NOT made by RMC or Larson?
Time Traveler

8. Name one park you will definitely visit in 2019.
Six Flags Magic Mountain

9. Best ride themed to a bird?
Thunderbird at Holiday World!

10. Lamest ride/coaster you rode in 2018?
I'll have to say Wildcat at Frontier City. It's short and filled with a bunch of airtime hills with literally no airtime (so pretty much ramps) :lmao:

11. What roller coaster currently sits at the top of your bucketlist? (degree of difficulty: NOT a new-for-2019 ride)
Eejanaika at Fuji-Q

12. What new-for-2019 ride or coaster are you most looking forward to?
Copperhead Strike

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

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...
Mako at SWO. Can't go wrong with a well themed B&M hyper.

15. Holiday In The Park vs. Winterfest. Who reigns supreme?
The ride selection at Six Flags's Holiday In The Park is superior to Winterfest. But for overall atmosphere, lights, decorations, festivities, Winterfest takes the cake.

16. Mystic Timbers mystery shed or Wicker Man fire infusion?
Wickerman's flame element looks incredible.

17. Which Six Flags have you been to most recently?
Six Flags Over Texas back in December.

18. Intamin or Schwarzkopf? You may only choose one.
Schwarzkopf.

19. Battle of Kings Coasters: Island or Dominion? Pick one.
That's actually a hard decision. But I think ill give the edge to Island since the guest experience (operations, customer service) at KI was a bit better than what i experienced at KD.

20. What was the longest you waited for a ride/coaster in 2018?
3.5 hrs for Time Traveler.

21. What roller coaster have you ridden more than any other?
Mamba at Worlds of Fun. Last i checked, I've ridden it somewhere around 1100 times (just an estimate, i haven't really kept track in a while)

22. Best drop tower under 150 feet?
Any of the larson ones.

23. Maverick or Millennium Force? (If you haven't been to CP, pick what you want to ride more)
Maverick

24. Log flumes or sky rides? You can only choose one.
Log Flumes any day.

25. What are 3 things you enjoying doing at your home park other than riding rides?
The shows at Worlds of Fun are actually pretty nice, so i try and see some every now and then. I enjoy eating there too since food has actually become pretty nice lately. I also like doing photography stuff around the park. Its actually a really pretty park when you're not in Mamba's plaza or Oceans Of Fun in general.

26. What is your second favorite Cedar Fair park and why?
Carowinds. I really enjoyed their food and their coaster lineup was really nice. Can't forget about their crazy fast operations on their B&Ms.

27. What is your home park and give us two good reasons why we should pay it a visit.
Worlds of Fun is my home park. If you look past the bad ops, you'll enjoy your time here because of the balanced collection of rides. It's also become a very pretty park in the last few seasons too. It will be even better this coming season since they'll be adding theming around the park too (according to their blog).

28. Launch or Lift?
Launch

29. Did you buy fast pass at all in 2018?
Many times.

30. What is your least favorite wooden coaster?
Wildcat at Frontier City

31. Disney fanboys: cool or cult?
Depends on the level of "fanboy-ism"

32. Best Batman themed ride?
Probably Batman: The Ride :lol:

33. Name something that tend to take home from parks that you didn't bring with you.
Ride photos!

34. Best wooden coaster over 110 feet tall? (rcdb will help you)
For me, it would have to be Voyage.

35. Have you ever been hit with something (loose change/a tree/vomit/etc) while riding something?
Oh, many times. I've been hit with a plastic toy case on Outlaw Run, i've hit my hand on a tree branch on Prowler, and then one time while i was riding Voyage, the person in front of me had loose change falling out of their pocket. I'd try and grab some coins out of the air whenever we hit an airtime hill

36. Skywarps: credits or no? State your case.
If you count powered coasters, then yes since its pretty much a powered coaster albeit the drive system is on the track, not the train.

37. Turkey legs: nah or yaaaaassssss?
Kinda indifferent on them.

38. What is the most recent B&M that you rode?
Batman at SFOT

Here's me enjoying one of my many laps i took on Magnum back in June of 2018. Don't ask me about what's happening behind me. I have no clue :lmao:

Just curious, what didn't you like about Karnan? I've heard nothing but great things.
