  1. I believe passholder and employee previews will be going on during that week, so you might have a chance at a soft opening between those times.
  2. Pandora had a media day today. While the land is obviously stunning and an engineering marvel, the river ride looks meh. http://attractionsmagazine.com/tour-the-rides-restaurants-and-shops-of-pandora-the-world-of-avatar-at-disneys-animal-kingdom/
  3. If you think that account is ran by anyone other than Tony or his former intern Jordan, you're mistaken.
  4. If we're talking ones that might actually be up for sale sometime soon, I'd put Busch Gardens Williamsburg. I wouldn't like to see it because I don't think Cedar Fair would handle the theming very well, but, then again, neither has SeaWorld as of late.
  5. I unfortunately went. We waiting 2 hours to get parked, walked in, couldn't move, said "nope" and then left.
  6. The log flume at Busch Gardens Williamsburg just completed a complete restoration project. I think most parks already have the necessary water rides. When Universal opens their third park, it'll be interesting to see if they put a water ride in it.
  7. Outlaw Run was perfection. The food was not Dollywood level but was still delicious. The cave tour blew my mind. Highly recommend.
  8. Update: this is now my favorite non-Orlando theme park.
  9. My girlfriend is taking me to Silver Dollar City tomorrow for my Christmas gift. Besides the obvious (Outlaw Run) what should we check out? What food is good?
  10. ^ I've heard the same thing. Oddly enough, they are doing cast previews of Rivers of Light the next couple of weekends. Only 6 months late!
  11. Just remember that Rivers of Light had a rough opening date too, and we see where that went.
  12. Wet 'n Wild Orlando is still open and will remain open through December 31, per their website: http://www.wetnwildorlando.com/ Good catch. Thanks for the correction.
  13. I have read rumors that this will only be open to guests staying onsite at Universal. While I doubt that, I do agree that they will limit the capacity similar to Discovery Cove. They already tested this at Wet and Wild before it closed earlier this year.
  14. I remember now. This has me confused. http://www.cleveland.com/onstage/index.ssf/2010/08/new_ride_at_cedar_point_tops_o.html "That wager is being complicated by threats of legal action from Funtime Group, an Australian-based ride manufacturer that claims it holds the U.S. patent on the ride. Funtime built what is believed to be the world tallest swing ride, the 384-foot StarFlyer in Vienna, Austria."
  15. The only time I walked by it was during the Halloween Party, so I'm not sure what is going on with it during the day.
  16. We were at Magic Kingdom on Wednesday and Friday. Stitch is being used as a trick or treat location.
  17. I land in Orlando on Wednesday. This will be interesting.
  18. I'd like to comment on the annual pass price increase. While I don't agree with the people who say it's too expensive and every family should be able to visit (no, you're not born with the right to go to Disney World) I do agree people should be mad. Where is the increased value? People are paying more for a lot less than what they used to be getting. 80% of Hollywood Studios is closed. Things are closing left and right. And they want you to pay more for that. At least with the Universal pass increase they have new offerings every year.
  19. They have a CookOut in Lexington so I love that place.
  20. The thing I don't get with Avatar is how are they going to sell stuff in that land? This is supposed to be a response to Harry Potter down the street (a very very late response), which has Butterbeer and tons of other stuff from the movies to make a ton of money off of. What from the Avatar movie can be merchandised? Was there any mention of food in that movie? It's hard to profit off that.
  21. I was at KK yesterday, and I think it was pretty cool. Obviously it was kind of sketchy, but if you go in not expecting much after reading the abundance of negative comments in this thread you come out pretty surprised. Lightning Run and Storm Chaser convinced me that I am getting old. Those rides kicked my butt and after 6 rides on each, my thighs are bruised.
  22. How is one person operating two rides simultaneously even legal?? That has to be at least top 3 in the list of the absolute stupidest things that clown has pulled yet! This is common with children's rides, but for coasters that is insane.
