  1. Well that isn't very FUN news. So far Cedar Fair is laying a giant egg on what whould be an extremely profitable season. I really don't get it.
  2. I got stuck on Banshee for a while today after a completely drenched ride on Delerium. It started absolutely pouring right as I was about to board. All and all I had a really fun day though. Got all the big rides in with no lines and made it in and out in about 4.5 hrs. Day's like today are why i brave the elements.
  3. You hit the nail on the head. I stayed around town instead because I did not want to risk it. I have only been once so far but i have a trip planned to hit a couple Six parks and BGW and I will hit Dominion on the same trip. I am more excited for the non FUN parks based upon what I have seen and heard this year thus far.
  4. I really want to go today but I don't want to drive an hr just to have to turn around. Is there anyway to know they will close early ahead of time?
  5. I was very pleasantly surprised with Banshee because I expected a really tame, typical B&M. I usually find newer B&Ms to be fun but lack the intensity and snap that I crave, but I have greyed out before on Banshee. I do abhor the vests though.
  6. 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.
  7. 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 no doctor or expert though.
  8. Adventure Express is a tease with no drop after the tunnel hill.
  9. Got my first phizer shot today and so far experiencing only a slightly sore arm.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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. : )
  19. I don't have anything helpful to add, but I do want to say that you sound like an amazing brother. I am terribly sorry that your family is going through this, but I am glad that you get the chance to make memories that will last your entire life. I highly recommend documenting it with pictures, whether they are purchased from KI or just taken by yourself.
  20. Invertigo and Banshee pull much more positive gs, in my experience at least.
  21. Bringing back Phantom Theater, KCKC, or a boat ride replacing BB would be absolutely amazing. A return of the tunnel by Vortex's old plot would be great too.
