  1. Got my second shot of the phizer yesterday. I felt a little off for a few hours but other than a sore arm felt fine quickly. Little off topic but figured id give my anecdotal data for anyone curious or on the fence about the vaccines. I will never presch to anyone, do to your body what you see fit to do to your body. I am just looking forward to an awesome, more normal season.
  2. This is awesome news! I can't wait to float lazily in the river. As for the masks, A combination of UV rays and chlorine should suffice for protection. Everyone is aware of the risk (though I believe it to be way less than many would have us think). Make your own decision. I wear a mask where it is required but I feel no less safe when I've been at bars, casinos, and resorts that have not required it. Before they were vaxxed i always got tested before seeing my parents or grandma, but I think our health should be our own perogative at this point rather than never ending mandates. I am n
  3. Adventure Express is a tease with no drop after the tunnel hill.
  4. Got my first phizer shot today and so far experiencing only a slightly sore arm.
  5. I am not a fanboy by any means, they just make my favorite rides. I would love to have one but I can most definitely see their downsides too.
  6. While you are correct on that, if you polled what their favorite rides are at CP or a park with either an RMC, Intamin, or both I would almost guarantee one of those companies made the majority of those polled favorites.
  7. I know I am besting a dead horse but the water smells and the chain grease smells are heavenly. Scents are so heavily rooted in memories and I have such lovely memories tied to those smells. I would definitely buy those candles!
  8. I like the idea. I could see it being a cool event, the only issue is Rivertown always alrrady seems so very crowded and bottle necked.
  9. I agree with everything said about AZ except getting rid of The Bat. It is great for youngsters not quite ready to tackle the big boys, and it is still a very fun ride. Arrow suspended coasters are dwindling, and The Bat is by far the best of them that I have ever been on. It could also definitely fit into a spooky german village theme quite nicely.
  10. I was young, so it didn't beat me up that bad. I loved it. It was definitely rough but I loved how out of control it felt and the structure itself was beyond intimidating. The first drop and the loop were definite highlights. The loud clink of the lift hill added to the atmosphere a lot too. That said, I understand why it had to go.
  11. As a non smoker I can't for the life of me understand how removing smoking areas made the parks safer. I also do not understand discriminating against a segment of KI's paying customers. It is certainly not my hill to die on but it seems silly.
  12. Sign me the heck up! It is a pipe dream for sure, but what a beautiful dream it is. Also, Brent that came off a little condescending. This is just a bunch of enthusiasts saying what they want, it is fine to think big. If i took it the wrong way, i apologize. It is hard to tell with just text to go by.
  13. People could, for example, fly to these places instead. Cruise ships are some of the absolute worst things for the environment. That is not to mention their massive tax avoidance by exploiting other countries as tax havens. I am also a bit more of an adventurous traveler, so the cookie cutter experience of cruises don't appeal to me. I won't go on a political rant since this isn't the place for it, but as someone who has scuba dived all around the world, seeing the damage done to the coral and sea life is devastating. I am now off my soap box, sorry. : )
