  1. I'm not sure what was up with Diamondback yesterday but it rattled really bad during my two rides. Normally it's fairly smooth with maybe a hint of a rattle. Yesterday I could even feel the vibrations in my seat. Perhaps it had to do with the heat? The only other time I've felt something similar on a B&M Hyper was at Six Flags Over Georgia on Goliath last year.
  2. I've ridden Banshee too many times to count, and I've always loved it. I just had my first ride on Raptor last weekend and wow, was that intense. It seemed much faster than Banshee to me. It could have been that the ride was running really well that afternoon, but I was expecting Banshee Part 2 and got something way more intense.
  3. I never would have guessed that Six Flags would be the last major holdout on outdoor masks. They're not budging. Since they were one of the most lax about enforcing, I'd assumed they would have been the first to ditch them.
  4. The only difference I noticed this year was that it seemed much darker in there than in previous years. When I rode it on Passholder weekend, I honestly couldn't see a darn thing. Normally I can make out a little bit of what's ahead. It's also possible that my eyesight has worsened over the past year.
  5. Dr. Fauci said yesterday that the risk from outdoor spread is "miniscule". I'm glad Cedar Fair is following the science. This is great news.
  6. So far this off-season, I've gone to Six Flags Over Georgia, Dollywood, Busch Gardens Tampa, and Universal. I would go crazy waiting around for 6 months without getting on a coaster!
  7. Agreed. However, once everyone has been given the opportunity to be vaccinated, then it's on them. The anti-vaxxers can proceed at their own risk while the rest of us get on with our lives. Fauci says that could be as early as May or as late as July. I don't think we'll still be wearing masks by the time of the haunt in October (especially outdoors.....where spread is extremely rare to begin with). I've never been to passholder night before. I'm assuming they will be extremely crowded?
  8. Ride times yesterday were some of the best I've experienced in a long time. Arrived at 10:30, waited about 15 minutes for Orion. I ended up riding it 4 more times throughout the day never waiting more than 5 minutes. Between 11-1, The Beast was a walk-on (the app said 60 minutes), Diamondback was about 5 minutes (the app said 30 minutes), Mystic Timbers was 10 minutes (the app said 90!!), and Stunt Coaster about 10. The Bat was pretty much a walk-on throughout the day (at least the few times I was down there), Banshee was about 5 minutes. The longest wait the whole day for
