    According to the media, I'm deplorable. So, whatever the average deplorable does.

  1. Just go. There is plenty to do, even if it rains a bit. Some of the best days in the park in my experiences have been on days that were supposed to be washouts. Have fun!
  2. Went up late Saturday for the first time this year with my daughter. International Street looks great, I think the fountain, once completed, will be an upgrade from what we had. We did our usual "sad coaster tour" of Racer, Adventure Express, and The Bat. Everything was actually working on AE, for the first time in 10 years it seemed! What a fun coaster in the dark! The Blue Racer was actually running? Yes! First time riding that one in years as well. Great ride again in the dark. The Bat was The Bat, still not worth the walk back. On another note, Mystic Timbers is such a great coaster, seemed faster in the rain/mist. I didn't get to get my Beast ride in the dark and rain, as it was down. Banshee might be taking over as best night time ride...
  3. I've tried twice now to take one more painful ride on this...been down both Sundays when I was back in that area. Goodbye, and good riddance to bad rubbish.
  4. All Vortex needs is to put in a modern restraint system, something along the lines of the way they redid Maverick at CP. Fun ride, but it was made a non-rider for me due to the uncomfortable old restraints. The way Vortex is, and being 6'6", it just beats me to death. I haven't ridden it in years, and won't until they modernize the cars.
  5. They were running three trains Sunday. What an incredible ride. Talk about making lemonade out of a lemon... Made me a bit sad riding it, though...wish the timing for a certain coaster in Kings Mills would have been a little different.
  6. They can have Lucy at the top pulling the football away from Charlie Brown...
  7. Man, I hope I am wrong...I have a funny feeling about this.
  8. I can tell you that Vortex just kills me now. The way that I fit in the cars, there is almost no way to keep my 6'6" frame from being punished. The only thing that will fix the ride for me will be new cars and restraints. I see the ride going away before being retrofitted.
  9. Perfect North does similar. That said, I have never seen anyone check your "time slot". Once you're in, you're in.
  10. Well, not exactly. As mentioned above, at Universal, you aren't getting in line for a coaster with a cell phone or keys in your pocket, zippered or not. I do agree that planning ahead can fix things most of the time. Correct. I was turned around on Dragon Challenge on our first day with only my phone in my zippered pocket. They don't, they don't, they don't mess around.
  11. While not Cedar Fair, Universal has one of the most stringent loose article policies on their coasters. They have metal detectors at the queue entrance and you can't take any loose articles into the queue at all including cell phones and keys. And they provide free lockers at those locations, so its clearly not about profit. Unless you are considering that it is cheaper to build lockers than get sued over flying objects, then sure. This was not the case two years ago. Just went first week of October this year. Very, very, very strict.
  12. This looks to be a great ride. Can't wait to see the finished product.
  13. All who have thrown their respective hats in the ring would be great choices. In fact, to that end, I think adding a couple would be a wise choice. No one nominated would do anything with that power to shine a bad light on this site, quite the contrary, would help to head off problems.
  14. Hopefully, this has passed, and we can move on.
  15. Kind of alienates the other people that have already posted in this thread.What I don't "get" is your avatar of what I believe to be you getting ready to pull a gun out of a holster. Compound that with your rather odd signature and you come off rather intimidating and possibly even deranged. What message are you trying to convey exactly? I'll tell you the message I am trying to convey... I am tired of your act. Collectively, we are tired of your act. I don't know how else to politely ask for you to knock it off, or just leave us alone.
