  2. I'm going to Cedar Point on the 15th. I've never been before, and I've never had to buy anything like Fright Lane or Fast Lane. My question is, does Fright Lane allow you to skip the lines of the rides, or only the mazes?
  3. They could add a Gerstlauer sky roller called Flight Commander, but that name would probably bring back some bad memories. A G2 Enterprise from HUSS (named Skylab after the old HUSS Enterprise) would also be cool, but I can only say we are getting the antique cars back with confidence.

    The Beast Roughness/jerking

    The Beast isn't that rough. Sure it's not perfect, but it's not as bad as Blue Racer. Blue Racer has gotten rough in the last five years. Personally I wouldn't mind if GCI retracked the whole coaster, and gave it Millennium Flyers. (Though they'd have to be REALLY long Millennium Flyers.)

    best and worst hallowen huant mazes of 2017

    In my opinion the best is CarnEvil and Field of Screams because I like the theming and they have good scared. My least favorite are Board to Death, Wolf Pack, and Blackout because I found them boring and not that interesting.

  7. I had recently remembered seeing a Koaster Kids video where Lance Heal the Entertainment Manager of KI said that they are retiring something for the 2017 season, but won't tell anyone what it is just yet. Go to 12:43 in the video to see his statement.

    How was your ride on Mystic Timbers?

    It was AWESOME although the shed was a bit lackluster. I'd give it a 9/10. I loved how smooth and how intense it was. It was a really fun ride. I think the ending would be better if right when The Bat/snake/tree monster showed up the room turned yellow, "Roundabout" by Yes started playing in the background and "To be continued" was displayed on the screen.

    Mystic Timbers Shed Music

    When I rode Mystic Timbers on Passholder Preview Day, my friend noticed in the shed the radio played "Total Eclipse of the Heart" by Bonnie Taylor. I later saw Coaster Studios Mystic Timbers rider cam POV with Alec Reynolds and OhioColts and the people in the comments section pointed out that "Maneater" by Hall and Oates played. Links to songs below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvLNRO41o64 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqy2N1jM2tU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZNNZ1dV9KfQ I'd like to ask does anyone else know the other songs that play on the shed radio. I understand why they chose these songs as they're from the early 80's (which is strange because the truck out front is from the early 60's) when the Miami Valley Lumber Company was abandoned, but I question there use since it doesn't fit in well with the sheds dark and menacing atmosphere. Don't get me wrong I love Mystic Timbers, but I question the music they chose at the end. Below is a song from 1979 that in my opinion at least would have fit the overall atmosphere better. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zL5AJHijgag Do you agree with me? Do you disagree with me? Do you think there is an even more menacing song from the late 70's early 80's that you think is better.

    WCPO Coverage of The Beast (1979)

    When that one guy they interview in the video said it was a smooth ride, I was quite surprised. I thought The Beast was always a bit on the bumpy side, but I guess not when it was brand new back in 1979.

    The Beast vs Mystic Timbers

    Even if Mystic Timbers is better than The Beast, what won't change is how important The Beast was to wooden roller. The Beast was a very avant-garde roller coaster in it's time and still is. If it weren't for The Beast a lot of modern wooden roller coasters we love to ride. However historical significance doesn't make a ride great. We won't find out how good it is until opening day.

    Which Ride Will Leave Next

    I don't think KI really got the short stick compared to KD. I hear Dominator has a terrible rattle in its last half and is one of the weaker Floorless Coasters from B&M. On the flip side, Firehawk is a Flying Dutchman by Vekoma which is considered one of Vekoma's better models, and both have rather mixed reviews from Coaster Enthuists, but then again the GP may like Dominator better than Firehawk.

    KI vs KD

    I thought this would be comparing KI and KD I've never been to KD, but I have seen videos and heard different peoples opinions so I could get an idea of what it was like KI overall has better roller coasters (Outside I305, Volcano, and Rebel Yell, KD doesn't have too much to offer outside its top 3 other than Grizzly, and Flight of Fear. KI on the other hand outside of their top 3 still has The Bat, Firehawk, The Racer, and Flight of Fear) KD has better flat rides outside Planet Snoopy (Or at least KD has more flat rides so there's more choice when it comes to KD) Though KD has more rides in their Planet Snoopy it seems KI might have more quality over quantity as KI's Planet Snoopy always wins the Golden Ticket Award for Best Kids Area (Honestly I think it could go either way as I'm not really an expert on what makes a kids area great. They both seem pretty good) Water Parks are about the same when it comes to quality (Haven't seen too much footage of KD's water park so I can't say for sure) KD is better looking than KI (Especially after KD's 40th Anniversary Birthday they've really done well to make it look absolutley gorgeaus while KI has the look of a typical Cedar Fair park. Which isn't bad, but KD is just above average compared to the looks of other Cedar Fair parks)

    Mystic Timbers Thrill Rating

    You're right, it should be lower
