  1. But dont worry, everyone, IB eliminating the $5 GA wristband wont have any negative effect on internal park operations or per caps.
  2. Agreed, this is far from ideal for the crowd who knows nothing other than to sit down and wait for someone to get on a mic and say “ all clear”.
  3. I absolutely agree in regards to smokers, or the rule thats not enforced that is much more important to me, line jumping. Toss those reprehensible clowns from the park, and if they are passholders, REVOCATION, not suspension. Now, in regards to sidewalk chalk, it takes all of about 2 seconds to realize and understand that the "my parents use this park as my babysitter" demographic would be creating crude anatomy lessons on the concrete if they were able to bring sidewalk chalk into the park with no penalty. The majority of Society's rules are made not to penalize the good (though that is more often than not what happens) but as a pre-emptive measure against the people who made the movie "Jackass" a hit.
  4. Sorry, its mid pack coaster at best, I apologize for not being a diver fanboy. Rougaru sucked as Mantis and isnt too much better as a floorless, Gatekeeper is ok but was PRE Banshee, and as I said I havent ridden Fury. I enjoy Thunderbird, for whoever mentioned it, but that is not a CF installation.
  5. I most definitely agree with the first part of this, the only State equal to or worse than CA regarding ride inspections is Jersey. The second part, not so much, and I say that because an impulse would be a good "test ride" so to speak in order to see if Intamightwork has at least somewhat remedied its reliability/downtime issues. EDIT: Id like to take this time to say I would LOVE to see them come back into the game, Id Love to ride something new at a CF park that actually raised my heart rate a bit, which B&M has failed miserably at doing since Banshee.* *Note, I have not ridden Fury 325 yet, so that may be the sole exception to this statement.
  6. Dont expect much.... remember how much they did for Beasts 30th. Using that as an indicator, the sign you are looking at is about it.
  7. This is a great video... and while comparing the two coasters isnt even remotely realistic, I will say what Ive said before. When both coasters are in proper states of repair, and running as they should, Voyage does what its intended to do better than Beast does. That is my feeling and mine alone, YMMV. I will also be the first to stand up and say that Beast was running very, very well last year.
  8. If I had to venture a guess, Id say it is because Red's profit margin is much lower than it is at Chicken Shack or Panda, for instance, due to the fact it is a sit down "full service" restaurant that has a higher overhead.
  9. Agreed, 2014 was the 2nd best Mania Ive ever been to, they really knocked that one out with it being Blue Streak's 50th (The last 2 day event in 2011 was #1 for me for a few reasons). After Failmania 2015, Id never attend another regardless of how many people I hear say they redeemed themselves last year. As far as my event choice for the year, since Im only doing one, its HWN hands down. Edit:Given a choice between Mania and Stock..... if I were inclined to attend, I would choose Stock for the single reason of Mystic Timbers ERT simply to be able to ride it repeatedly this year without a multi-hour wait.
  10. Sorry, when I first saw this thread title, my mind immediately went to....
  11. Yes it is.... as an informational point of interest for those who are members, the most notable in regards to enthusiast clubs that are NOT recognized for admission to Coastermania is Coaster Crew
  12. Im going to be enjoying HWN, and likely staying in Evansville. I find it humorous that people are willing to spend inflated amounts of money to stay 10 to 20 minutes from the park, when I can spend 60% of the cost and stay 45 away.
  13. One thing that will have to be open for Winterfest, is the Dippin Dots stand. How else are we going to get news on whats new for 2018?
