  1. I figured it out. They have already shown you what's in the shed! NOTHING!
  2. I think upstop is very close. Manufacturer: GCI Length: 2,401 ft (Does anyone else watch The Price is Right?) Height: 115 ft Drop: 85 ft Layout: Like a cross between Prowler and White Lightning. Short, wild, fast, and packed with airtime. Records: Tallest wooden coaster in the park (It doesn't take much, does it?) Special: Follows the terrain in a deeply wooded setting. Should make for another crazy-good night ride.
  3. Yaaaawn.... Don't mind me. Just catching wind of some déjà vu here. @Maddog (7/11/16 @ 9:50 AM) - Yes. This. This is exactly what has happened to Mrs. Zombie and I both times we had our Platinum passes. Thus, we no longer carry them. I'm still around. I just like to stay low and keep opinions to myself these days. Where's my newspaper? Zzzzzzzzz....
  4. She's not kidding... Her French macarons can be very persuasive!
  5. Kennywood is well worth the drive. I would make the trip annually from here on out, if I could.
  6. No more love for the left side of Gatekeeper?
  7. Sometimes a little PTO isn't enough...

  8. The Hurler... so... much... pain... You just had to mention the food at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. Now I'm hungry. (Fixed a major misspelling of Busch. Oops)
  9. After visiting Kennywood and Knoebels (both great parks, by the way), it's easy to see that Kings Island is missing a good quality dark ride. Though I'm sure Cedar Fair would most likely embrace the latest technology and trends, I have seen with my own two eyes that fancy animatronics, interactive games, and 3-D glasses do not always make the best dark ride. Noah's Arc, Exterminator, Black Diamond, and Knoebels' Haunted Mansion all manage to provide an unforgettable experience with simple props and effects. Keeping a new dark ride simple would be the key to keeping it maintained.
  10. Only about 2 weeks to go until Kennywood :)

  11. Every coaster in the park I've found enjoyable at one time or another. Vortex is a harsh ride, but worth it every time. There are only two rides so far anywhere that I absolutely refuse to ride ever again... The Hurler at Kings Dominion, and The Roller Coaster at New York-New York in Las Vegas.
  12. I know we have Snoopy's Splash Dance, but a nice fountain like Cedar Point has would be nice elsewhere in the park for cooling off. That thing came in handy last week!
  13. I saw Cirque Imagine today with my son. He normally can't hold still but he loved this. It's a fantastic show and a perfect fit for the park.
  14. ^...and you might feel like you're 33 when you're done riding it.
