  1. Arcade and pinball machines are normally in the $3,000-$5,000 for used cabinets. Now if you are talking about scale models like Arcade 1Up then yes $300-500 but those aren’t the same quality as a full size arcade cabinet. If I ever finish my living room remodel then I want an Arcade 1Up machine. I would love to have a full size arcade cabinet/pinball machine but I will never have that kind of money.
  2. Wooden coasters have to have more supports to spread out the weight and forces because wood is a weaker material than steel. I doubt Vortex is worth getting RMC’d or Steel Phantom’d.
  3. Carowinds started selling those before they close Thunder Road and they still sell them today. CoasterDynamix said they were only doing one run of the Thunder Road one.....
  4. No, it wasn’t https://themeparkuniversity.com/theme-parks-101/lego-company-set-to-own-legoland-parks-merlin-entertainments/
  5. Merlin was bought by LEGO.... Cedar Fair not issuing a statement is a better sign that the rumor is false than coming out and saying it is false.
  6. Interesting observation.... Next season KI’s oldest steel coaster will be Adventure Express built in 1991.... Oldest wooden coasters Racer and Woodstock Express from 1972.... But weren’t steel coaster supposed to be cheaper to maintain?
  7. Carowinds removed Thunder Road in 2015, the same year Fury 325 was added. A water park expansion filled part of the spot then Copperhead Strike filled a another small chuck of Thunder Road’s spot. Vortex’s case is different since it isn’t being removed for waterpark. I hope KI once again saves the station and reuses it.
  8. I personally feel like this is just a PR spin. The policies aren’t new, they are just communicating more. I guess it is a start but given the crowds that SCarowinds attracts I don’t believe that it will be effective. I also believe that the “improvements that the guests can’t see.” Is just a buff. It is kind of a former workplace of mine saying they have cameras in the parking but when something actually happen in the parking lot they came asking us to report anything we knew. We later discovered there were no cameras btw.
