  1. I mean, I'd be excited if it were me. Heck, I'm excited for them. I though all enthusiasts want evacs?
  2. I'm trying to figure out if that is three new coasters or four. You've got the two RMC at CP/KD, but then there's "a completely new type of coaster...and a renewed relationship with a manufacturer." Is that two coasters? Is it one coaster and one non-coaster? Or is it the same coaster altogether? Either way, it seems more likely Knott's new attraction will be a coaster. If there's a fourth, I'm thinking either Wonderland or CGA.
  3. When we went last summer Woodstock Express went down while we were in line. Rather than leave the area, my mom suggested we ride Peanuts Pirates. I was skeptical as it seems like such a kiddie ride, but it was actually a lot of fun. And by 'we' I mean my 19 year old self, my 17 year old brother, my 21 year old sister, and my 51 year old dad. So, yea, give it a shot because it's certainly not just a kiddie ride. We all enjoyed it. I'd also echo Sythe's comments about hype. Going down I felt like a lot of people said it's an awesome park. Sure, it's not bad, but I personally feel CP, KI, and KD are all superior.
  4. Wow @mikejenkins1! Thanks for sharing. Awesome find. That picture of The Racer on the front kills me. I'd love for those colors to return.
  5. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/297096906642937192/ I can't confirm whether or not this was used as the logo, but it is how it looked from the midway.
  6. Hearing Mystic will be open doesn't surprise me one bit. I've been suspecting it for a while. I have the same feeling about The Beast possibly being open and to a slightly lesser degree for Racer.
  7. Just add [spo iler] in front of what you want to hide and [/spo iler] after what you want to hide. And do it without the space in between the o and i. I had to do that so you could see the code.
  8. Wow great trip report. Sounds like you had an awesome day.
  9. I find that article kind of laughable. One, I don't think anyone from KI actually has been saying "wooden coaster capital of the world." They then accuse CP of falsely claiming the title of "roller coaster capital of the world", but there's no rules. No one says you have to have the most of something to use such a phrase. They even bothered to state KI is going for wooden coaster capital because they can't touch the SFMM record. Though I highly doubt anyone from KI even thought to go after SIX when trying to decide what to build next. It seems like that author might as well work for SIX.
  10. Looking at the webcam and seeing the long line of passholders already lined up for Mystic Timbers and knowing I already rode it seven times last night with basically no line gives me such an awesome feeling. It looks like they actually have the line going behind and then through the Crypt building.
  11. I got seven rides in last night in seven different seats and every single one was unbelievable. The ride truly is relentless from start to finish. The airtime never lets up and the directional changes really throw you around, particularly in the stretch just before the turnaround tunnel. My first ride was in the back row and I expected it to be the best, but boy was I wrong. The airtime is just as strong in every other seat. In fact, the front is actually my favorite due to still getting the airtime plus feeling the speed as the air rushed past my face, forcing me to put a hand down so I could keep my shirt from blowing up. This was my first GCI and is definitely a contender for not just best ride in the park, but best ride that I've been on. I'll have to get more rides before making a firm decision on that, though. As for the theming, it truly is another level for Cedar Fair. I hope we see more of it in future additions, but even more so hope they can keep it maintained on Mystic Timbers. The story is nicely done and does take several rides to really piece it all together, including what's in the shed. Speaking of which, I did enjoy the shed and think it is a great use of the extra time and space. Overall, a great ride I can't wait to ride again and would rate ten out of ten.
  12. I know they had fireworks at the pass preview night last year. I couldn't say for sure whether they'll do it again this year, but I don't see why not. You could probably find someone to ask once you get there.
  13. Doesn't bother me at all. I never viewed it as a first rider auction. I only thought of it as raising money to get to ride it before the passholders and general public. And what IndyGuy4KI said above.
  14. I'm bringing this post by @Bansheeback over from the now closed construction thread: I'll be there alone as well; however, I'll be late as I have lab here at UC until 5:30. I just hope to be able to grab some dinner before the rides actually start at 7. I'm also definitely planning on saying hi if I recognize anyone from photos on this site and recommend you do the same. I've heard they're all very friendly.
  15. The above comments are definitely exciting. Although, I'm going to withhold on watching the pov myself until I ride tomorrow. I don't want to know exactly what to expect, it'll take away some of the fun.
