  1. I will get my pass next week. I would've gone to the park today but my wallet got stolen Friday night and it had my '07 pass in it
  2. I may be going to the park today also im not sure. As for HH attractions the two i liked the best are Red Beards Revenge and Massacre Manor. Both are done very well
  3. 15 minutes for Firehawk in the morning is pretty good but when i was at the park on September 30th I got in line at 3:00 and got on in 5 minutes although i doubt even 2,000 guests were at the park that day. If anybody wants to make one last trip just to ride every ride possible i recommend you go on a Sunday!
  4. But you may have to wait a couple of months like we did last year with the rumor of Firehawk. As for me in the offseason i am either at a practice or game for basketball, on KIC, or doing homework
  5. No they are talking about when the track for Firehawk was laying in the parking lot
  6. Elvira is really good but would be better IMO if it played in 3-D
  7. I'd have to agree with you....I found it embarrassing as well. I don't have a problem with others appreciating it, just not something I was comfortable watching with strangers. The content was similar to something that should be seen in the privacy of your home...... Im guessing you 2 havnt seen Torture Chamber yet. Dead Awakening was a good show, not the best, but pretty good.
  8. For the haunted attractions I highly advise trying to get in line early. You may want to stay a little past midnight because both nights ive been there that is when the crowds started to die down.
  9. Flight of Fear started with four trains but only three were retrofited with lap bars. Only two trains run during the season though
  10. No need to worry about the crowd. Sundays are usually the best days to go to the park because most rides are walk on heck you may be lucky enough to get on Firehawk in under 20 minutes if you would want to.
  11. The only time i have seen SoB walk on when i have been at the park this year is either early in the morning or on Sundays. I dont see how anybody couldnt agree that when the line is really long during the day especially on a very hot day during the summer that a third train would be very reliable. There are 3 reasons i would like to point out why it would be great to have a third train and Hendrick has said a couple of these already 1. When the employees run the ride right and dispatch at a constant basis there is a good amount of time in between the dispatched train and the next train to come in and unload/load again. Now wouldnt a third train decrease this time? 2. People love the ride but absolutely HATE the hot weather but know they would have to wait in line no matter what. When the line is down the second ramp it is an hour wait. Now put a third train in there, the line would move faster, the capacity is better, and you have a lot more happy guests. 3. Everybody says that Firehawk needs a third train because it would speed up the line. Now how is Son of Beasts line any different from this? Both lines usually over 45 minutes long so why does everybody say Firehawk needs a third train but SoB doesnt. Between when a train for Firehawk is brought into the station and when it is dispatched is usually about every 5 minutes or so but the ride is only about 2 minutes 30 seconds long while on Son of Beast between when the train comes into the station and when the same train is dispatched is about 2-3 minutes and the ride is over 3 minutes long so how can somebody not say a third train would help with Son of Beast
  12. Tomb Raider will not be removed. Yes i would also like to see it happen but it will not for at least a couple of years. The only reason it closed was for maintnence. The only thing of the ride that will probably get the axe is its theme.
  13. I think a third train would help a lot on Son of Beast. As browntggrr said not many people ride it on a consistant basis and the cost would be high to retrofit it but what about the days this year especially in July and August after it opened back up and the line was over an hour long and in between the dispatched train and the train coming into the station was over two minutes long like Delirium33 said. What if there was a third train at that point it wouldve helped get the line moving a lot faster right? Plus who said that three trains would have to run on a consistant basis you could always put one on the storage track on a day where there are barely any guests in the park. I think there needs to be a third train so on the days where the park is really crowded it can keep the line moving and keep the guests happy because they wouldnt have to wait an hour but maybe reduce it to 30-45 minutes.
  14. I was just there on the 29th and the person said nothing and most likely the operator never will. Maybe he was bored and just decided to count down the drop but when i ride i am the one that lets the people 5 seats down both ways when we will drop because i will usually count down for everyone. If somebody on the site was one of those riders im sorry if i made the ride less enjoyable Another thing from the 29th, altough off topic, I was on Shake, Rattle, and Roll with my friend and while we were loading i noticed DZ was at the top and would drop soon but after 10 seconds it hadnt dropped! It got stuck at the top for about 5 minutes but then started coming down slowly still attached to the catch car.
  15. I like the idea and it wouldnt be a problem since i am one of the few who have unlimited texting from Cingular/AT&T
  16. I think they may do something with the rides but most generally they are just trying to get more people to come since they will have rides open all night now about lines i am not sure i know i stayed until 11 one night during Fearfest and rode Beast and the line was full but i cant remember what other rides are like line wise
  17. I will be there all day tomorrow. Cant go tonight because its homecoming for Goshen!
  18. Well just think in the last 3 years of thier ownership, Paramount put in Boomerang Bay to restore Waterworks in '04 then put in Italian Job in '05 then restored Hanna Barbara Land to make Nick Universe in '06. IMO Cedar Fair has done an excellent job on cleaning the park and such but at least when we had Paramount as an owner they put in something new every year and we didnt have an owner that is in debt badly and we had to pay for it with higher prices everywhere around the park. Cedar Fair is in debt horribly and now we dont even know if we will get anything new anywhere around the park and a single visit can cost over $25 easily per person.
  19. Just looked on Carowinds Connection and they have talked about it and a guy on there said there might be something wrong with a footer and they ended up taking a support down to dig that footer up. Here are some photos the guy took while at the park the other day http://www.thrillnetwork.com/boards/showpo...;postcount=3452
  20. I just saw that a few minutes ago but wasnt going to say anything for two reasons. 1. thats a year away and 2. i figured a lot of people would already know about it since it was talked about for what seemed two weeks nonstop
  21. New for Holiday Worlds Splashin Safari in 2008, Kima Bay http://www.holidayworld.com/new2008.html
  22. That would be awesome if you ask me.
  23. Processing starts on the 23rd of this month but the hours of which you can process has not been officially released yet. Most likely they will try to find a way to have the processing center open on weekdays when the park is closed.
  24. Yes the Platinum Pass will include GL and all of the other Cedar Fair parks and waterparks.
