  1. I'm still not even trying out of distrust.
  2. Diamondback would give the last few rows hypothermia on snowy days.
  3. ^I figured Paramount would have scrubbed any trace of the Outer Limits name after it got changed. Guessed they weren't diligent enough.
  4. Do you mean the original where it mentions the original ride name, Outer Limits? There's no way that video exists on the internet.
  5. How about one of those drive thru places where you can load up on snacks and drinks? Also a combo Skyline/LaRosa's/Graeters.
  6. A few come to mind- - I wasn't too keen on riding coasters when I was younger, but I eventually worked up the courage and started small and went bigger, the coaster that got me on track was, then, Top Gun. When I first discovered it, it looked and sounded so different than the other louder coasters and just something about it gravitated me to it, I rode it about 6-7 times in a row that night - As I started to get more courage, I eventually got to try Vortex for the first time at nght. A year or 2 prior, I did get pretty scared on my first Beast ride, but after the first Vortex ride, I got my first Beast night ride and loved the 2 from that point on - I have a LOT of good memories with my family at, then, Water Works (I hope they go back to that name honestly with the facade over the lazy river, that logo always looked so cool to me) - my first ride on SOB was on a preview night they had to postpone due to SoB doing SoB things, I think I rode with Don (it was a larger park official that looked like him), despite my hate of it, that ride was really unique and sticks out being a wooden coaster that big and the loop was pretty cool doing it for the first time on a modern wooden coaster, also at night - finally getting to be tall enough to ride King Cobra before it was taken down, even got a 1-1 ride on it - during a P&G Dividend Day, I got to ride on Vortex in 6-1 6 times in a row without leaving the seat - being on Beast during the fireworks when it was allowed to run, they often stopped the trains on the respective lifts to let riders watch from that vantage point - my first ride on Diamondback which was in between the few surgeries I had, then coming back in 2010 with the first season pass I had in a few years and riding the crap out of DB, felt great FINALLY getting a B&M coaster and also overcoming my medical condition to get back to enjoying the park at the same time (row 3-2 on the green train is where I first rode it and I love getting to get that seat when I can for the nostalgia trip) - my first KIC meet up at the Banshee announcement (which was the apex of the most awesome decoding thread in site history) - the first few KIC Haunt meet ups I went to, especially 2014 and 2015, made me always try to get a Haunt rain trip - being at closing day in 2014 to attempt to get to be the 2 millionth rider on Banshee, probably rode it a dozen times that day, most of it near close obviously
  7. Most rides I had on it, particularly the blue side, they were off anyways. It's got some decent laterals now when it happens.
  8. ^Not all the other CF parks' sites have that list. The only ones that have it are KD, Carowinds, CGA and Knotts.

    LOL

    I wonder of he did some weird math with the price KI paid for Vortex updated for inflation and divided the track piece length from ~3800 ft.
  10. I guess we need to denote sarcasm around here.
  11. If anyone here remembers the Fahrenheit announcement and build up, this is nothing new to how HP announces things. Also, they're totally jacking UCs branding with the red and black claw marks. (/sarcasm)- edit
  12. They are only loading the first 2 cars and it's barely making it over the helix today.
  13. Going off my coaster rankings- Steel (out of 95)- 6. Diamondback, 7. Orion, 10. Banshee, 30. Vortex (defunct), 39. Flight of Fear, 45. Bat, 46. Firehawk (defunct), 50. Adventure Express, 65. Invertigo, 82. King Cobra (defunct) 87. Backlot Wood (out of 34)- 2. Beast, 6. Mystic Timbers, 11. Racer, 31. Woodstock Express, 33. SoB w/loop (defunct), 34. SoB w/o loop (defunct) I only put Woodstock just to show how bad I think SOB was.
  14. The big thing for me about Haunt this year is the awful music selection. To me, the use of music really sets the tone for Haunt and adds huge amounts to the overall atmosphere. The death metal at rope drop and basically using standard music used in the summer made it feel less like Haunt and more like it feeling like a typical night at the park that just happened to have Haunt elements which didn't blend.
