Yeah, but do they have a Windseeker yet?

Well, color me - meh.

The Minnesota Zoo in Apple Valley, which is not that far from Valleyfair, opened their own dinosaur exhibit this past spring. Can't say I see this as a major draw. How has Dinsoaurs Alive been received at the other parks?

No, but when they get one, I anticipate it'll be built mid-T-Rex.

I think this question is answered pretty easily when you see that they're installing it in more parks every year.

It's not like they are raising the price and charging everyone more whether you want to see the dinosaurs or not. I wont pay to go see them, but I do recognize the fact that a lot of kids love dinosaurs and they are just trying to cash in. It must be working.

I've wondered that for years. What ever happened to that dude? I miss his blunt humor.

Maybe he went back to edit a closed thread and got lost.

Once in a blue moon, I look at threads from before I started posting here..for the rest of you, known as the "good old days." I've seen some of CoastaPlaya's posts, and enjoyed reading them.

I don't think he posted that much after he jumped the shark and got caught editing old posts in deleted threads to make it look like he 'won arguements'. He pops up occasionally. Like Antuan (Miss Him).

I'd much rather see Impulsive, Dawn Marie, Bassississt, Kick The Sky, or a host of others return. Thankfully I keep in touch with a bunch of them on Facebook.

The thing about people who wander off and stop posting, especially if it's because they aren't happy with the quality of the community, is that they don't improve the situation by leaving. That's unfortunate.

I'm pretty sure that was a well-worded insult.

See? See? I told you he says stuff like this.

This is the only thing I will say about that troll. His posts were not funny. They were arrogant and mean spirited. He tried too hard to be liked, and in doing so, laid on his buttholishness a little too thick to anyone he found a disagreement with. I have no respect for him at all.

I've been dreading the day his name would come up again.

That is all.

To each their own. I thought he was funny. A little too blunt at times, but funny.

Also, I guess I missed the whole post-editing scandal. Must have been a sad day at CoasterBuzz.

I don't know who is throwing what at whom, and I'm OK with that.
