  1. There is a fence up along The Beast tracks now in the woods
  2. Hey all, First let me say I been a platinum pass holder for almost 10 years now. I really love Banshee and the fact that on almost any given night you can almost walk on the ride. I don't get it, do seven inversions scare the public that bad? I think it's one of the best rides if not the best ride in the park. I also really do love how Kings Island lets the line for the front row extend much farther then the station was design for(bad design if you ask me, they should of know most would go for the front on a inverted coaster). I have never seen any other park do that and I hope that contin
  3. Anyone know what's happening with Shake Rattle and Roll? I know its not a big attraction but it is on my buddies list to ride from time to time. It's been down for a while now. I would think they wouldn't do the work there doing on it now if it wasn't major.
  4. Need more B&M Giga's. I rode Leviathan this year, my only complaint was it was a little short, about 1000 feet shorter then MF. B&M's have very comfortable seats with lots of leg room. B&M's are also reliable. Intamin's always seem to have teething issues. I don't recall them needing to replace a complete section of track on a B&M because it was engineered wrong. I'm gald to see Cedar Fair kick Intamin to the curb and are having all these B&M's built.
  5. I never eat at the amusment parks, cost is way too high.
  6. I remember back in the day my beloved Eli Bridge Scrambler had no seat belts. Now they all have them, even at the State Fair on the junk carnival versions. My guess is we live in a world today where people are morons. I can't tell you how many times on a ride I have heard the ride operator say "put your cell phones, camera's, ect away for the ride", only to see a bunch of folks pull out those things while riding. I have even seen someone try to carry on a phone call while on the lift hill on Millennium Force. I think the seat belt is just another way the amusement park has for controling these
  7. Yes Sledgehammer was running, infact everything was running. My friend and I even notice the day we were there that everything was running, unlike the No Action Zone of KI!
  8. Hey all, I don't post many trip reports, partly because my trips to the amusment parks tend to be about the same everytime. I think the last trip report I did was the last time I went to CW in 2008 for Behemoth. This time we made the trip for Leviathan. For those who do not know Leviathan is B&M's first 300 foot 92 mph coaster. As soon as I found out about the ride(around this time last year), my buddy and me started planning our trip. I got Fast Lane passes for the full day we were there for I had been to CW before and I know the kind of crowds that park has... Fast Lane Passes are wor
  9. Hey everyone, A friend and I are going up to Canada's Wonderland next week. We went a few years ago to ride Behemoth this time we are going for Leviathan. I already have my Fast Line passes. We plan on spending some time in the park. Anyone with suggestions or idea's we might want to try?
  10. Well that's a ton different than Kings Island. Was thinking since I'm going on a weekday it wouldn't be so bad. I myself like KI better then CP only becuase of the crowds. CP is busy almost everyday there open, you are just going to have to deal with the crowds. When ever I plan out a CP trip I usually have my day planned out to get the maxium amount of "fun" time. With two days there you should be able to ride everything and a few things twice, just plan on waiting in line. It's goes faster if you bring someone along with you that is a good talker, someone to take your mind off the long w
  11. As far as More money=more valuable person goes, sadly it's the way the world works. Money Talks. Look at all the morons running for/or are in office. The first homeless man to run for President will get my vote, but you will never hear about him because it takes millions to run. Someone lied to you if they told you life is fair!
  12. I don't know anything about amusment rides but I work on a production line and we have the same kinda E-stops. Most machinerie I deal with these days is so computerized that a simple reset isn't always a option. I would bet Surf Dog is like that too.
  13. Any Idea how Canada's Wonderland does there Fast Lane? I'm going there later this summer. Wonderland has been constantly tweaking it throughout the season to get the best balance of Fast Lane users and regular guests. I haven't used Fast Lane yet, but based on what I've seen during my multiple visits, Fast Lane users are held back before entering any coaster station. When it comes time to let more guests into the station, the attendant will usually split it up about 1/3 Fast Lane users and 2/3 regular line. Sometimes more, sometimes less all depending on the number of guests in each que
