  1. Or the zoo for that matter, with lots of Christmas lights visible now...
  2. http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/lake-county-news-sun/crime/ct-lns-six-flags-assault-st-0927-20170926-story.html
  3. Found a mistake... On the "Attractions" page for Winterfest, the picture shown for Peanuts 500 is not the version that's at Kings Island.
  4. I'm planning to spend most of my time on Closing Day in Planet Snoopy, though we'll likely make it over towards DA at some point because my niece loves Monster (at least while the ride is in motion - she's not a big fan of sitting in the air while another part of the ride is unloaded). It'll be interesting to see what they do with the area and if they do anything special for Winterfest since that would be a great area to jazz up for the holidays (even though there's less than a month between the end of regular operations and the start of Winterfest). Also, last I heard there was still a h

  6. I believe that's how many times your content has been "liked", though I'm not sure how the new reactions thing fits into that. @malem or @Dane can probably explain it in more detail.
  7. I'm not a Haunt person, but have vague memories of visiting the original Winterfest at least once as a kid. Looking forward to visiting Winterfest this season.
  8. Speaking of renewals, if any of you signed up for the auto-renewal feature, keep an eye on your email. I got an email from them the other day saying they needed my billing info (I paid with PayPal last year so they didn't have my card info) and that I needed to sign the payment agreement thing. I did all that today and am good to go when it starts taking payments out for next year. It will automatically renew your drink and dining plans as well.
  9. Trustees of Conneaut Lake repay all delinquent property taxes: http://www.erienewsnow.com/story/36154136/trustees-of-conneaut-lake-park-repay-all-delinquent-property-taxes#.WZVuJ0xfLuE.facebook
  10. I doubt there's a connection, as the timeline for Twisted Timbers is earlier than that of Mystic Timbers.
  11. Here's the full facts sheet which lists all the records. I definitely see a trip to Branson in my future... https://sdc.silverdollarcity.com/sitepages/2018/site/ride-facts.pdf
  12. I wouldn't. I've got better things to spend $500 on Sent from my LG G5 using Tapatalk
  13. It looks like Carowinds is getting a Planet Snoopy expansion for next year. They've been dropping clues using the hashtag "SnoopyPresents2018" on Twitter the past few days... https://twitter.com/hashtag/SnoopyPresents2018?src=hash
  14. Possibly, but that would require a lot of testing during the off-season and there's no guarantee that would work at all, especially given the age of Vortex.
  15. The dreaded "EX0" error is back when I try to view The Vortex Poll topic.
  16. Waldameer is adding a Zamperla balloon ride and ProSlides Cannonball 30 tube slide for 2018: http://www.goerie.com/news/20170813/erie-park-to-open-two-new-rides-in-2018 I didn't spend any time in the water park when I was at Waldameer last year, but it seemed to be quite popular, and both attractions should be a great addition to the park.
  17. It's the heart icon in the lower right corner
  18. Unfortunately I've only gotten to see Cirque once this season as most of my visits have been on Wednesdays. I might try to get up there for a final show on the 20th though. I will be up there again on Wednesday to celebrate National Rollercoaster Day and see the sports show.
  19. I really don't see them as that much less safe than your standard permanent amusement park rides. The companies that put on these shows have to have good safety records in order to make money. There are also thousands of fairs, church festivals, etc. across the country each year with portable rides, and there are rarely any accidents involving the rides. I rode the rides at the Kenton County Fair earlier this year and will probably ride the ones at the Boone County Fair when I go tomorrow night.
  20. I've been planning on going to Hersheypark on my vacation next year (two full days to get the most out of the park). Looks like I might have to check out their water park while I'm there...
  21. My guess is it's something related to Winterfest.
  22. Here's all the technical details about the ride: http://www.kmg.nl/kmg/factory/afterburner_en.html
  23. Here's more info on the inspection process, including a video of the ride in question being inspected in 2012. http://nbc4i.com/2017/07/26/ride-inspections-at-the-ohio-state-fair/
  24. Cedar Point will be making an announcement at "high noon" on the 16th. From CoasterForce on FB: Link for Tapatalk users: https://www.facebook.com/CoasterForce/photos/a.57182843638.69352.48452768638/10154699576733639/?type=3&theater
