  1. Many comments surrounding DT @ CP were along the lines of: "man that ride sucks! The building is ugly too!" But when the queue line was used primarily for HH: "That is a good haunt."
  2. If the ride is great on the inside, nobody will care what the building looks like on the outside.
  3. Knights Inn is very inexpensive- but don't expect too much, you get what you pay for.
  4. There are so many variables, I would assume there would be data that is needed to be crunched such as: Time chain lift motor is running/ amount of train cycles (train weight)/ amount of passengers (additional weight). I also assume that the chain slack would be checked periodically and once x-links are removed due to stretching the chain is replaced. I'm sure I oversimplified the process, but you get the idea.
  5. Good business practice, especially concerning publicly traded companies, is to listen to all offers. But it doesn't mean it's going to happen. It's interesting that this news would be leaked. Or was it leaked with an ulterior motive for public/ customer backlash to squash it?? Easier to say no to a deal if most are not behind it......
  6. Interesting news. Not sure why either entity would want (or allowed) to acquire each other.
  7. Same complaints are made about Beast, Magnum and even DB due to the shimmying (which still boggles my mind). Younger generation has been "spoiled" by the smoothness of today's technology- and that's not a bad thing, it just is what it is. Rest assured, there is a plan in place- give it about 3 years. Given the terrain, I'm guessing a multi launch coaster, but that is an easy guess. -OR- A complete long shot- they could blow everyone away with a similar layout to the original Bat.
  8. This is a bummer. Not totally unexpected, but still a bummer. I can remember when Vortex first opened as Bat's replacement and being pleasantly surprised on how good the ride was. I expect there will be the same surprise in the coming years. There is always a plan.
  9. https://www.wsoctv.com/news/local/carowinds-copperhead-strike-coaster-closed-after-guest-injury/978116773 Changes are being made to the seat backs.
  10. Waldameer in Erie has gone exclusively to card only system for everything. No cash accepted in the park.
  11. Not necessarily a coaster commercial, but one that always had an impact for me as a kid. It meant school was starting soon........
  12. http://www.fox46charlotte.com/news/local-news/copperhead-strike-at-carowinds-closed-due-to-hand-injury-sunday She had her hand "stuck in the ride"?? Sounds like a seat restraint issue, but the reports are incredibly vague (accuracy also is in question). I guess this is better than having her hand strike the ride while in motion....
