  1. I just painted this Boo Blasters Poster for its 10th year at the park, and because its well, the greatest ride of all time.
  2. Agreed, worst case scenario we may see some things like future expansions pushed in date, or events being cut back (although not removed) in a bit to make up for things (Like haunt)
  3. If openings get pushed back i think its for the best. I personally would rather avoid going to the park (Or any of my planned park road trips) until i hear more positive news about the containment and control of things. While i dont see it completely going away this year, i would hope for things to start being contained after a few months. Its a hard call living just about 10 minutes from the park, but with my downtown classes being moved online and my girlfriends work preparing for working remotely i think its got the best to buckle down and be safe and keep informed.
  4. Assuming that these are not the official lighting package lights (Maybe maintenance lights since you would need them to light things up safely) I think it would be really cool if there are LEDs running the lift like Fury, but instead of being a solid line the light up animated from top to bottom to create a meteor shower effect
  5. Pretty sure its just cameras, the strobe warning is on all other rides with photos.
  6. I've seen what the cup bits look like (have seen bits from someone who has access to the site though i wont name names since i don't know if they should or not) and that's real. They just cleanly trimmed up the ends from one of the cut parts (you would just need some good cutting tools and like you said taking some time)
  7. Man I wish that picture was just a little more to the right so we can see the clearance on the maybe headchopper. But that's crazy low to the ground there!
  8. Thanks Don, cant wait to see the full time lapse!
  9. It looks like we have a train on the track!
  10. Im down for another angle of the park when it comes back up! I live nearby and would always use the Diamondback cam to determine how crowds looked by the ride line before heading over.
  11. Assuming another track piece is added to attach to the support today
  12. I just got the same thing, I actually almost bought one last visit but they didnt have my size so it's a good deal!
  13. Considering we are likely adding the queue from Firehawk to FoF, I wonder if the old pilot entrance for Firehawk will stay and be updated with signage for FoF
  14. My girlfriend and I have stayed at a few places on our trips up this year. With budget in mind here is our current rundown in order of our favorite to least: Motel 6 In Milan: This one was our favorite, the price is good and the rooms seemed to be more recently renovated. They also have a working Fridge and Microwave in the rooms. (The rooms also have an interesting 60s aesthetic and hardwood floors) Super 8 Motel in Milan: This is across the street from the Motel 6. The rooms here were nice as well. bottom floor has a back door to the rooms too which is nice for quick loading and unloading the car. This one is about as high on the list as the Motel 6, we just like the renovations at the Motel 6 a little more. (The only downside is you will be about 20 minutes from the park in either of these first two} Magnuson East Sandusky: This was our first hotel we tried this year, the location is just a couple minutes from the park and the price is fair, so if distance is important this one if a little better than the first two. I think the only real issues here is that there is a bit of a strange smell you have to get used to (But hey its a hotel and thats usually normal) and the walls seemed a bit thin as we could hear our neighbors all night (But that could just be noisy neighbors) There are mixed reviews online, some mentioned bedbugs, but i inspected our rooms each time and never found any issues personally. Norwalk Inn: (Farthest from the park) This was the cheapest by far, however we did not stay. Management seemed nice enough and it lookes nice on the outside, however the room we got was in pretty bad condition, dirty and pretty beat up with a non working microwave and fridge. Both my girlfriend and I didn't feel comfortable after getting there and opted for the Super 8 instead. This one was the only one under 100 a night (We were looking to save some money) but like Ding Dong said, it gets pretty dicey when you dip that low. ( we looked at a few other cheap places but also opted out) Hope this helps, as you can see we had to do some experimenting to find a place and will likely go for the top 2 any time a trip comes up again unless we can find any better recommendations that are closer.
