  1. The Skyline is going to be on the Eiffel Tower top observation deck. It will spin around slowly as you eat. Walk outside, and you'll be able to ride Dangle, a ride that dangles you 20 feet off the deck of the tower. Look out below! Here comes the chili!

  2. If it is a Wind Seeker, I would close my eyes the whole way through. The fact of you sitting in a chair, being swung outwards up to 300 feet high, just makes me faint. I can handle roller coasters, but for some reason flat rides that are tall freak me out. I close my eyes all the way to the top on Drop Tower and Delirium.

    I know it's probably not going to happen, but I would really like an Intamin coaster, anything would be nice. Something like Maverick or something like Milliennium Force? I don't care. I'm just not too sure about the Wind Seeker, and it doesn't seem too fun.

    This is all in my opinion. Anybody is allowed to argue with me. ;)

    VALUE (Get-in-price, food prices, etc etc...)

    Kings Island vs. Holiday World

    Holiday World wins 7-3. I didn't ride too much at HW when I went, so I have a low score.

  4. Hey guys. I just got back from Holiday World today. I left on Friday in the morning, and when I got to Santa Claus, I went to the Christmas store, and all the other shops in that little strip mall. Then my family went to the Lincoln Museum memorial. It was actually pretty interesting. But that's not the important part about my trip. The best part was Holiday World! Before I get to pictures, I'm going to review what I did, then review the roller coasters.

    We left from our hotel (Best Western Lincoln Land Inn) at about 9:00, and got to Holiday World at 9:10. I asked you guys on Thursday if I could trust the weather, and guess what? They were absolutely WRONG. It said storms all day, and there was not one raindrop all day. So, they unlocked the rope thing, and of course everybody starts running towards places. And guess what wasn't one of them? The Voyage. It was basically a walk on. A five minute wait. My dad loved it, and I loved it (review is below). My dad is old (I'm so mean) and he admits it, and said he had a really aching back after it. So, I rode it on my own right after that, and it was then a walk on. My family and I went over to Raging Rapids, since we were already hot. My little sister (age 4) rode it with us, and she had a blast. Since we were already wet, me and my dad rode Pilgrim's Plunge. He had to close his eyes going up the lift. Another great ride. The Thanksgiving section was still empty, so we rode Gobbler Getaway as a family. Now I'm just going to go to my rest of the day ride count since this is already getting long, then I'm going to review some coasters. Overall, we stayed about 8 hours, and as well went to Splashin' Safari, which, we rode two rides (No Wildebeest due to a 2 hour wait). Onto ride counts/reviews.

    Voyage x3

    Legend x1

    Raven x1

    Pilgrims Plunge, Gobbler Getaway, Liberty Launch, Raging Rapids, Bakuli, Jungle Racers.

    Voyage - Holy...moly.....this was amazing. I will admit, I almost chickened out to go on it. I've always been afraid of airtime since I'm so skinny. But, now I love airtime. This ride is intense, it's INSANE. It's nonstop curving and turning. Every single little bump, you go out of your seat. I love the surprise drop in the middle of one of the tunnels. Much better than The Beast, and IMO, better than anything I've ever ridden. 10/10

    Legend - This is another intense ride. It's fast paced, and the terrain is unforgettable, going underneath waterslides and flying against a mountainside. Yet, the roughness kind of ruined the enjoyment for me. Therefore, I give it a 6/10.

    Raven - Very fun ride! Once again, intense. These Holiday World rides are just so fast-paced, it's crazy. I love the view of Lake Rudolph, and the curves are great. It may only be (90?) feet tall, but it packs a punch. 8/10

    Liberty Launch - Loved it. The second bounce lifts you right of your seat, and it's even better than the first. It's too short though. 7/10.

    Pilgrim's Plunge - This ride is so unique, with the open-air elevator. The drop gives you some good Gs, believe it or not. We got soaked, and it got us throughout the whole day, our clothes had to dry for a full 24 hours. 8/10

    Raging Rapids - Difference between WWC and RR - WWC has several hills that make it go faster, but RR doesn't have that. Which WWC is a little better, but RR was very fun. The theme was very good, especially the old town. 7/10

    Gobbler Getaway - I like this better than BBoBH. I love the granny in the queue line, and it's very quiet, which makes it very fun. 8/10

    Pictures coming soon.

  5. Hey. I'm leaving for Santa Claus right now, and going to Holiday World tomorrow. Guess what my problem is? The weather. You do not know how mad I am right now. Every single day this week and next week are sunny, except for the exact day I go. I mean, really?

    So, do you think this is bad weather? Do you think a 60% chance of storms is bad?

  6. On Backlot Stunt Coaster, awhile back -

    The train was launched out of the station, but I guess it didn't get enough speed, so it didn't make the top, then went down backwards. The ride had stopped, the guys were saying, "Sorry for the inconvenience", and one lady says, "I didn't know it went backwards!"

  7. I want them to bring back old school flats :)

    Count me in on that. While we do have Scrambler, Monster, and Shake Rattle and Roll - we need more! Thunder Bobs are fun. The Tempest at Coney Island is fun. A lot of things are fun. I'm tired of thrills. Bring on the family rides! :P

  8. Wow, I honestly didn't expect these answers. This poll is so pointless! I thought most of you would say you can't put your hands up on at least some rides.

    What daredevils you are! (compared to me ;))
