Nothing opening this year excites me. There's not a single Dragon Wagon.

Does a new for 2016 Orient Express count? :-P

^^I managed to find a twitter account tied to him, in April he found an unused account of one of the rides managers and tweeted her asking if there are still any positions in rides available.

My goal this year is to collect the remaining B&M and RMC coasters I've yet to ride in the US. The to-do list includes (bold indicates new for 2016):

B&M - Medusa West, Vortex, Flight Deck, Valravn, Mako

RMC - Twisted Colossus, Storm Chaser, Lightning Rod, The Joker

New for 2016 coaster I'm looking forward to most - Mako. B&M hypers are transformative rides for the parks that build them in a way that few other coasters are. It's entirely possible that I'll rate the new RMC coasters higher in terms of how good the ride itself is, but I'm more interested in seeing how much different SeaWorld Orlando is going to look and feel with Mako there.

I would say that Valravn might be the only coaster I will be able to visit this summer. But, If I can make it to other parks, I would be more excited to line up for the coasters at Great America, mainly Goliath and X-Flight. I have not been to Great America in 10 years.

Other rides I would be more excited to Ride would be at Kings Island or Holiday World. Diamond Back, and Banshee, and all the coasters at Holiday world would be new to me. And, if I could get to Dollywood, that would be even better!


I didn't do it! I swear!!

And that'll be after having to park mid-causeway.

Hopefully they'll have some entertainment in the queue if it's going to be that long. Maybe a game or two of Tighty Whitey Twister?

Guys, guys. Give Timver-Rider a break. Maybe he actually does wait 4 hours for Mean Streak...

On opening day 1991.

Seriously TR, when the park gets to a certain capacity, they stop leting people in, in which the wait lines will be 3 hours at the absolute most for Maverick...


Hey, let's ride (random Intamin coaster). What? It's broken down? I totally didn't expect that.

Ask not what you can do for a coaster, but what a coaster can do for you.

If you're getting jelly and it's not from your local grocer, you may want to have that looked at.

I've never heard of CP not letting people in the park because of crowds, when did that happen?


I'd rather be in my boat with a drink on the rocks, than in the drink with a boat on the rocks.

I saw it in July in 2012. They closed the ticket booths so only season passholders would be allowed admittance. I'm assuming it was crowds because it was 1:00 and the overflow lot was just about full. Only time I have ever seen it so crowded.

Even worse than Columbus Day 13? I'm pretty sure they didn't close the park that day and I think that was one of their highest attendance days of all time.

I wouldn't know. I always avoid Columbus day weekend.
