    Cedar Point | Top Thrill 2 | Triple Launch Renovation | 2024

    I use glasses straps on all sorts of rides, and haven't had an issue with them yet. Strangely, at SFOG, one ride op asked us to remove my glasses, even though they had a strap. And I'm basically blind without them. Which is why I figure CF is allowing glasses with straps, because if someone...

    SeaWorld San Diego planning new 2025/26 coaster?

    Ugh, not a fan of having Riptide Rescue being relocated there. That's a much bigger plot of land, and you'd think there'd be a better use for it. And it would also leave behind a small plot of land that has no real serious development options, other than maybe a deck or yet another store/food...

    SeaWorld San Diego planning new 2025/26 coaster?

    I went to SW a few times this year. As a teacher, I get a free Fun Card (essentially, free admission). It's sad to hear the two aquariums will be demolished, but as they've been SBNO for years, it's not exactly a surprise. I do think the upcoming jellyfish exhibit is a step in the right...

    Knott’s Berry Farm | MonteZOOMa: The Forbidden Fortress | Schwarzkopf Launch Refurb | 2025?

    I don't know if I'd read too much into that, other than, "Oops, we forgot to tell the map guy."

    Knott’s Berry Farm | MonteZOOMa: The Forbidden Fortress | Schwarzkopf Launch Refurb | 2025?

    As memory serves, that's pretty accurate... although I don't believe they said "Please" in the "Please prepare for launch). SFMM did used to have a recording for Rev, but I haven't heard it played in years. And when I did most recently ride the Sky Cabin, the ride op (likely deliberately)...

    Knott’s Berry Farm | MonteZOOMa: The Forbidden Fortress | Schwarzkopf Launch Refurb | 2025?

    It's super awkward that even as of yesterday, if you ride the Sky Cabin, the narration talks extensively about Montezooma's Revenge.

    Two rides with the same layout: one great, one terrible

    When I rode the Great Nor'Easter at Morey's Piers, I was shocked at how good an SLC could be. At the time, that SLC was as smooth as nearly any B&M. As opposed to nearly any other SLC in the world. Having the ocean view on the lift hill only adds to the experience

    Lagoon | Primordial | ART Engineering/Triotech Dark Ride Coaster

    I'm not sure if anything will beat Flying Turns at Knobels for that title.

    Is Tidal Twister a good ride?

    Wait, so is it open again? I thought I had heard that it had perhaps closed permanently.

    USA and Vancouver PTR Part 6: Dollywood & Pigeon Forge

    Pity you never made it to Meow Wolf, it's quite the head trip. They also have an amazing bookstore called The Tattered Cover. But all those are fun parks to visit--though I have heard Lakeside is going pretty downhill in terms of ops. Pity, because it's a unique place to visit with a lot of...

    Knott's Timberline Twister Replacement

    Yes, but none of those are literally exact duplicates

    Knott's Timberline Twister Replacement

    Both Disney and SFMM already have a Vekoma Roller Skater. I thought the rumor was a copy of Canada Wonderland's Snoopy's Racing Railway? Although, given Knott's history, I'd figure they'd give it the Soap Box Racer name.

    Space Mountain (Florida) vs Space Mountain (California)

    California is better themed, on board sound, and much, much smoother. While it may be a tamer ride, that's enough for a win to me. No contest. I think things would get more interesting comparing WDW Space with CA's Matterhorn... that's a much more similar comparison in terms of ride quality...

    Lagoon | Primordial | ART Engineering/Triotech Dark Ride Coaster

    Any updates on this? I saw the vid of it valleying during testing, and another forum has claimed it it having some major problems, and likely won't open until next year--but wasn't any more specific.

    Cedar Point | Top Thrill 2 | Triple Launch Renovation | 2024

    The wheels for Superman: The Escape at SFMM appear to be a about the same size... and when you think about it, that ride and TT2 have a comperable ride experience (especially since S:TE now has a a forward and backward side)

    "American Heartland" Park and Resort in Oklahoma, aiming for 2026 open

    I'm still not holding my breath, but hey... if it does finally open, that'll be great. Lost Island has a similar disadvantage, location-wise, but had a much smaller budget... and is still struggling with attendance. Which is a pity, because it's a great little park. I was just there less than...

    "American Heartland" Park and Resort in Oklahoma, aiming for 2026 open

    I'm sure this will open right after Cota land and that Pole Coaster in Orlando opens

    Cedar Point | Top Thrill 2 | Triple Launch Renovation | 2024

    I always thought Alpengeist is more about the ski lift, then then goes "out of control" for the rest of the ride.

    Six Flags closing multiple rides for 2023

    On the other side of the news, SF Great America is reopening their Sky Trek (Sky Tower) after being closed for 4+ years. https://wgntv.com/podcasts/coastin-the-country/sky-trek-tower-reopening-at-six-flags-great-america/
