  1. I've heard that about those 3 from a couple places so seems like a good idea. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  2. Hello! It's been a minute since I've posted here. Hope everyone is doing well! I'm going to Dollywood this Friday for the first time since I was a kid (as in mid-90's?). To put it in perspective; Thunder Express was still there then. I'm caught up on what I want to ride the most (Lightning Rod and Thunderhead) but wondered if anyone has suggestions on which coasters to hit first? We'll be getting there at park opening and I'd like to do any coasters that typically have longer waits first so we can do them all in one day and possibly do the best ones a couple times. Thanks in advance for the suggestions! Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  3. Last year I remember that, at least early on, they were not letting that main "crypt keeper MC" guy speak over the mic at the entrance as he had in years past. We even asked him about it one night and he said he had no idea why he wasnt allowed to do it but it wasn't up to him. Did he ever get the mic back later last year? We really missed his joker-like laugh echoing around the entrance and i hope he's given it back this year. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  4. Same as above. I used to flop a couple bucks down to throw some rings or a football, but haven't done it since they switched to the cards. Made no sense to me and I hope they change it back.
  5. Their poster hanger has weekends off. Built into their contract.
  6. Hey Mike Mike Mike Mike Mike! Guess what day it is! Hump day! *Goes over a hill*
  7. I'm concerned that these roller coasters are out there copulating like that.
  8. I think it should be named "Paul". It's just a reasonable name. You can trust a Paul to be reliable.
  9. They brought the trams back this year, but they were lost to the potholes. At night, when the air is still; you can still faintly hear their horns from deep underground.
  10. No Don, don't jump! It's not worth it! Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

  12. I didn't notice any area specific music besides I-Street and Rivertown.
  13. I read some of the negative thoughts about the fountains on Friday, then went to the park on Saturday and have to say that I was impressed with the fountains. I don't know the fountain total from before, but the little that I saw of them looked like there was more spray going on than before. Granted, it was rainy and I didn't stick around to watch them much, but I thought they looked pretty good. I was even more impressed with the paint jobs on the buildings and them flying nice big international flags.
  14. I remember the year it was announced and seeing the very awesome detailed model of it that they displayed near the park entrance. I was so hyped for it. I live near Dayton but my friend and I would make trips out to the closed park in the off season just to sit in our cars and look at it in different stages of it being built. It was definitely a beautiful structure and was a sight driving up to the park. When it opened I made 3 different trips to the park in the mornings to ride and it seemed to be down whenever I got there. I would only have an hour or so to wait so I'd have to leave without riding. It wasn't until the 4th trip that I finally got to ride and I knew something wasn't right. It just was too shaky for a brand new coaster. I thought maybe I had a bad seat, but each ride it just felt like a jack hammer through the helix's. The smoothest and most enjoyable part was the loop. It eventually got to the point where I'd ride it once a season just to do it, but would have no desire to go back. It's a shame that they couldn't make it work, but I'm with some of the other above; I have no interest for it to return.
