  1. That makes every year it has rained during the event or would have been the event (this year).
  2. Aside from Planet Snoopy obviously, Slingshot is the only ride I have not experienced. I have never even been in Soak City.
  3. Interesting. Testing in these relatively high wind gusts. Good opportunity for testing in weather conditions that are always a possibility in this region.
  4. I just finished the registration and the message comes up as: Coasterstock Registration Thank you! We look forward to seeing you May 17-18 at Coasterstock!
  5. Slightest bit of wind shuts down WindSeeker so that could be one of the reasons. In June, the park was just busy enough for no re-rides but line was never longer than 15 minutes for Fury.
  6. WindSeeker seemed to be running just fine during my visit in June. On a side note, Fury was incredible.
  7. DOT limits the combined weight of truck, trailer, and load to 80000 lbs.
  8. I don't think the park will suspend operations for the new coaster as Racer, WindSeeker, and Vortex all remain open before and during the fireworks. Beast is the only one that suspends operations for the fireworks.
  9. Thanks, I will be waiting patiently and watching the mail.
  10. Has anyone heard when the park might be mailing out the credentials and swag for those of us that opted for it?
  11. Not sure of any legal reasons, but the bar tenders were adamant about checking ID's and having any patrons under 21 not sit at the bar itself. However, they could sit at the tables within the bar area.
  12. As it is a brewhouse, I expect the bar to stay. I also expect to be able to walk right in to the bar (bonus that children can't sit at the bar), order a brew and have access to the full menu. Otherwise, meh.
  13. The KD version is superior in my opinion. It doesn't rotate, the gondola is bigger providing higher capacity, and most importantly the restraints are much less restrictive. The KI version I just can't ride comfortably. Restraints are far too restrictive.
  14. Link to purchase tickets is having some issues according to the park. EDIT 02/07/19 Link seems to be working now. Ticket purchased with no issues.
  15. I had similar experiences with Mr. Freeze at SFOT. It was delayed into the next season if I remember correctly. I agree with the sentiments for the OTSR removal in favor of the lapbar.
  16. Wow. Great to see that others are making the same trip I have been planning since November. June is when I am going to visit Carowinds for the first time ever and then Kings Dominion for the first time since Twisted Timbers opened. I am really looking forward to Fury 325.
  17. Years ago my daughter and I were in the park and after buying lunch and scanning Gold Pass we 'earned" a free ride for 2 on the Go-carts that have since been removed. Just little things like that and discounts for food and games. I "earned" a free flight on EXtreme Skyflyer once, that was cool.
  18. I would like to see a larger/smarter labor pool to hopefully improve food service throughout the park.
  19. Probably not. In which case I would ask for no inversions on a giga. I much prefer the comfort and open feeling provided by the standard B&M clamshell restraint across the lap.
  20. Hope these dates stay in place, I already have that weekend off, and I am looking forward to what is sure to be an amazing event.
  21. ^ I agree on the red coaches. Then again I am not a big fan of the color green.
  22. Sounds like they might be clearing out the Arcade for future use.
  23. Corkscrew does need to go. Just not an enjoyable ride in any way. Rode it once my first visit years ago and never again.
  24. ^Death before disco. The classic rock on Racer radio is better suited for Coney Mall, in my opinion.
