  1. It's going to be a great addition to park in my opinion! It's not the "hot" pick that some wanted, but the family man in me is grinning ear to ear!
  2. Hold on to that anticipation and excitement folks. It goes by quick! This is as they say, "The most wonderful time, of the year!"
  3. Christmas in July, brought to you by The Hallmark Channel!
  4. Things are getting a little... studly in these parts as of late.
  5. The park warned you about falling trees, and you went to KK? LolSent from my N9130 using Tapatalk I see what you did there... If driving to work meant riding Storm Chaser, or (almost) any coaster, I'd smile every day. I drove in the opposite direction. Right into the maw of the derecho. Alas, my fate today after that encounter was re-imaging Chromebooks... Or as I like to call it, watching pixelated grass grow!
  6. Looks like they were correct. We had a lot of fallen trees and moderate damage all over the place in Indiana. The storm approached my area just as I left to go to work... what a drive that was, haha... At least I got my storm chasing fix in! Hope everybody is okay!
  7. If there is one thing I have learned from my ventures to Florida, it's this: Never go into the lagoons during or after the evening.
  8. Perhaps I'm a minority here, but I've learned how to "ride" the coaster over the years. At a young age I would often tense up while riding it, but as time has wore on I've been able to anticipate and just go with the flow. I don't fight back while riding, if that makes sense... I haven't considered The Beast to be so rough it's not enjoyable. It's all part of the experience.
  9. You aren't alone in this sentiment TB. There was just something magical about it at night, after a long hot day with the coasters. Something I'll cherish for the rest of my life!
  10. Just saw this article on CNN. Looks like the news is making waves. Just wow...
  11. Awesome Vortex! Ah the power of social media. So many people underestimate the waves it can generate.
  12. I'm seeing Banshee running smoothly. Makes my day!
  13. Hmm. I can view the live steam perfectly.
  14. My niece always screams as high of a pitch as possible. Needless to say: I hear that, and not much of anything else afterwards...
  15. Sorry to hear that APE! Yeah I've traditionally avoided opening days due to the madness. Sometimes it's fun to just walk around and take pictures though. I'm hoping to get out to the park sometime in the next month or so. I've missed it all!
  16. Yup. That's why I've been hesitant about them... Stay away from my beloved woodies RMC!
  17. These articles have been incredible to read. The past few weeks I have been struck by a very strong case of illness. The silver lining was I had more time to read your stuff bkroz. So thanks for helping me get through my tough times by clearing my mind!
  18. I wouldn't call Banshee boring... but that's just me.
  19. I thought the name was familiar! Hahaha! It was a very nice read! And yes, as you put it, that truly was a perfect storm. And a great lesson to be learned for the future of other parks. Your writing was definitely worth it!
  20. I stumbled on this very interesting article on Geauga Lake by Brian Krosnick. Kinda makes me wonder about a particular park in Southern Indiana that once was a family park and is now starting to evolve... http://www.themeparktourist.com/features/20140824/28153/lost-geauga-lake-how-worlds-largest-six-flags-disappeared Enjoy!
