    A miraculously dry visit to Kennywood!

    Just to make it's known: I didn't think the ops themselves were bad, it was just the 1 train thing. As said above that dreadfully slow lift hurts. Phantom's was really moving and Sky Rocket was very fast. The classic woodies were pretty rough and idk I'd think they should be quick but maybe not...

    A miraculously dry visit to Kennywood!

    I left this morning with the weather forecast saying 75-80+% chance of rain for the area w thunderstorms. Unsure what to do but having 1 bought the ticket 2 not being able to move it to later in this brief trip I just watched the local weather as I got close. It seemed to be raining on and off...

    Most capitalist and socialist theme parks

    An actual socialist park, as in one that is owned by the employees who also make decisions, (and I reckon season pass holders would have some say) where all the would be profit goes into the park and to the workers, would be pretty f-ing cool. Ironically it would probably be great for...

    Best roller coaster in Universal Studios Florida?

    Mummy. Gringotts is perhaps a better experience, well OK it deff is, and don't get me wrong...fun ass ride, but Mummy is shockingly very good. I didn't know what it was and expected some generic going around in circles and drops dark coaster, did not expect a launched hill and two pretty good...

    Most capitalist and socialist theme parks

    I don't think anything Disney related being "most capitalist" is controversial at all lol And interesting fun thread! Despite being a fairly political/economics guy I actually don't have much opinion. IDK enough about the parks to make a judgement, but yes I'll agree any that don't do fast...

    Question about coaster size terms for non-U.S. American enthusiasts

    Won't vote/go hard as thread is not for me but just for fun: I've stopped using the terms with time. Will still with some enthusiasts when it's convenient but eh... one got tired/bored(?) of it and two, there was sooo much debate over what is and isn't (and this is among people who ARE using...

    Busch Gardens Tampa | Iron Gwazi | RMC Gwazi | 2021

    Yeah I'm sure they have absolutely no idea about it tbh. I guess the capacity thing makes sense, it's certainly my bias just dang, even w capacity hitting I'd think they'd wanna open the ride. If the concern is more people will go, well...that's why sell so many tickets per day right now? Tough...

    Kings Dominion Opening Weekend!

    OMG so glad to hear this. One the other forum I had the audacity to say KD wasn't that great and oof...not sure I'm gunna live it down! My goodness was someone legit mad, called me an idiot, and threw shade at me in a separate, newly formed thread, some enthusiasts eh? And yes agreed! Excellent...

    Ah is it? See I've been bad with following that type of stuff, esp last year-ish I've tried to not think about covid best I could when thinking about parks. Has it been hitting capacity? If so then yeah I get that. Guess I'm surprised they still are operating with limits, esp it being Florida! I...

    Carowinds & Kings Dominion opening weekend

    While I try to avoid weekends and especially opening days, when you're in the area what can ya do? Arrived at Carowinds a little after 10 and was thankful to see they were letting people in already, and naturally waited at Fury for 11 to come. Was pretty slow ops to be expected, a fairly short...

    Kings Dominion Opening Weekend!

    Oh I was there Sunday as well! 305 being down realllly hurt the day I won't lie. Esp with Avalanche being down...It was noticeable and I felt KD's lineup really felt exposed without it. Also yeah the ops were horrendous! I hope it was just opening weekend wrinkles. Twisted Timbers was especially...

    Busch Gardens Tampa | Iron Gwazi | RMC Gwazi | 2021

    Wait what? Ohh........that says a lot. The heart wants to say "Its just to be safe! Let's see" but the brain is saying, this is a 2022 open :( oof Wonder why? Even if it sneaks in a 2021 open why the delay? I get it: Covid and the financial issues etc but by this point...safe to say people WILL...

    SFGAdv | Jersey Devil Coaster | RMC Raptor | 2021

    I mean there's no way it'll be like that/its a result of camera picking up everything? I didn't notice a thing on railblazer and can't imagine it being like that. Least I hope cause yea that would be brutal, but I'm not too concerned, nor was I with the speed. I know...funny from the guy who...

    Busch Gardens Tampa | Iron Gwazi | RMC Gwazi | 2021

    I don't think anyone has any idea what's up. It's kind of the great mystery, how was the ride that was testing, I believe with people at one point, and looking like it was ready to go just been sitting there, no update, no word? It may indeed be a SeaWorld issue, wasn't Ice Breaker also testing...

    Wow, this seems like it may actually open this year! And speaking of Iron Gwazi, this may somehow beat it to opening!

    First ever trip to Dollywood!

    Y'all know I don't do trip reports with pics, (we've seen em all, nothing I can really contribute) nor do I go hyper in depth on every experience or ride, but this was my first visit on my 3rd attempt maybe it's longer than usual. So let's dive in! Was very glad they let us into the park early...
