  1. You know what would be absolutely great? A test seat. Many wait forever in line only to be smushed and told they can't ride. Also for the height requirement signs to be in the front of the line, not in the middle.
  2. This is all in the heat of the moment for me so my view may change later, but as of now, all the hype for Orion for me died. I absolutely loved Vortex, and entering the park next year and not seeing it there anymore is going to hit hard. Really hard. For me next year isn't about the addition of Orion but the removal of Vortex. Last year when Firehawk went, I thought it would be safe for a while. Guess they'll be removing two coasters back to back instead. It sucks. It really sucks. I really thought next year was going to be amazing.
  3. I guess I don't see that as a great example of poor arrow transitions. Has always felt like a normal, janky mine train transition. Nothing bad, really. I'd say Express really isn't at all near the end of it's service life. Parts aren't an issue, maintenance isn't an issue, and ridership really isn't an issue at all, so unless KI absolutely HAS to remove it, I don't think we'll be seeing it go anytime soon.
  4. I personally don't think the track needs touched at all. I've never personally have ever had a truly bad ride on it. However, return of the Station Master audio would be great, and making the "Now you will pay!" audio louder so you can actually hear it would also be neat. Just a full revamp would be nice. More props, better audio, keeping the effects running, more fleshed out tunnels. Would be really, really cool. Here's some of the audio, btw (found on KIExtreme.com) Adventure Express Station Master.mp3 Adventure Express Final Tunnel Mono.mp3 Adventure Express Rainforest.mp3

    Not gonna lie I'm digging the looks of the teasers. I'd gladly buy a Vortex teaser poster
  6. This has happened before. I know for a fact it happened last year and took about 2 weeks to get it back open. Dont really know how long it'll be this time
  7. I love how they're making I-Street more International, but I think they may want to fix this
  8. Isn't really about operations, but something that would that we would really, REALLY appreciate. The Bat has a lot of wildlife around it, with a family of groundhogs being the most present. (The mom in the family is named Tom Cruise btw.) We absolutely love having these groundhogs out and about near the queue line. So please, please don't throw rocks/glass or jump the fence and try to chase them. It happened a lot today for some reason. Not only are you endangering the animals, but you're potentially endangering yourself. If you want to SEE the wildlife, don't MESS with the wildlife. And now something to contribute for operations: Drop Tower has really weird, complex, and at times frustrating seat belts. Once the ride is over and people try to get it, many get stuck and can't unbuckle. To make everything go faster, all you need to do is pull down on the restraint and bring it to you as close as you can, and THEN unbuckle. Bringing the restraint down just makes unbuckling a LOT easier. If you can't do it, just sit back and let the associate coming around help you out.
  9. Watched Coaster Studio's video on RMC Gwazi, already enthusiasts making a big deal about how it's not dueling. One comment goes off on the ride complaining about how "RMC is stagnating" and that a Hyper RMC that goes beyond vertical is completely boring. Yikes.
  10. This article honestly resonated pretty well with me. From people lashing out at others just because they like a ride they thought was horrible to talking about how "I have more credits than you, therefore I'm more of an enthusiast." Something I kinda wish the article talked about was how the hate for GP has risen drastically. I'll go into YouTube comments of a video and just see an abundance of enthusiasts chewing out someone just for being GP. Just because they didn't know everything there is to know about coasters and parks. I'll go into a "GP" YouTube video talking about Ohio coasters and the comment sections will just go all out on them because they put "The" in front of a coaster name or get some small facts wrong. Comments will be nothing but Enthusiasts complaining about GP and make fun of them. The term "GP" has just been so degraded to the point where if you just mention it among enthusiast communities, it's more than often meant as a negative connotation.
  11. It's not older than 2000 but I can see Wicked Twister going at some point in the near future. I've always heard about maintenance problems with it and it going down.
  12. Thing about Arrows: Arrow ride attendance is really often not bad as they may seem. Pretty sure we've already established a bunch of time that Arrows often get shorter lines because of capacity and operations. Just take our own good ol' Arrows here as an example. Consistently on the higher side of ridership yet short lines. Even better example: Anaconda. Anaconda gets practically no lines and is pretty unpopular among enthusiasts. However it's consistently the fifth most ridden at the park, with 554k riders in 2017 and 541k in 2016. I just see Cedar Fair focusing on removing "trouble making" rides. Rides that break down a bunch, expensive to maintain, and don't have many parts around. I'm going to predict we're going to see some more Intamins and maybe Vekomas leave as well.
  13. lol Carolina Cyclone is my 4th favorite coaster Carowinds. Worst coaster either has to be Green Lantern at Great Adventure or the Carowinds Vortex. Both bashed my head in reeaaall good and were super uncomfortable. The corkscrew on Vortex really messed me up, and Green Lantern was just overall a really bad experience all around.
  14. Going to assume really not anytime soon. It's still pretty popular, iconic, and isn't even close to the maintenance nightmare Firehawk was. I think it's pretty safe unless something major happens to it and the only option is to remove it.
  15. S&S has an Arrow Division which focuses on making Arrow parts.
  16. I'm honestly really happy about this. (Probably a bit too happy about it) Bringing back the old retro train design was something I was really wanting for the longest time. And now they actually went and did it, but also made it better. Now I'm actually really looking forward to riding it again. And to me, the "Interesting" is just Tony wanting to spark up discussion/rumors like he does all the time when talking about the future.
  17. I could've sworn I heard somewhere that the hyper was actually cancelled, but I'm not 100% sure about that.

  19. I used Fast Lane Plus. This year I went on a VERY busy day, Steel Vengeance had over a 2 hour wait. I waited 30 minutes. Remember Millennium Force having an hour wait, while I again waited around 30 minutes. In the end I wouldn't of been able to do a whole lot of things I wanted to if I didn't have Fast Lane, so from my experience I would definitely say it makes a difference.
  20. My 2018 season wasn't really all that exciting, but it was still a pretty awesome year. Went a LOT this year. I even got free tickets and Fast Lane vouchers to any Cedar Fair park from the temporary army tent, which was really the only reason I got to go to CP this year!
  21. Rename and repaint Vortex to Cyclone, just because of how it's kinda the same thing and the familiarity. Repaint to be anything but the weird Black/Blue Yellow/Orange thing it's faded into.
  22. nah man imo I like the black (dark blue?) and orange rails paint. Not that it's really that orange anymore lol
  23. Winterfest was pretty good last year. KI's got my vote!
