Me stripping down and getting wet....not such a positive.

College girls doing the same? Now THAT's a positive!

There needs to be some type of permit/approval process for stripping down and getting wet.

I only strip down and get wet if there's tighty whitey twister involved.

And no permits will be issued for that.

I think you meant to say "Permits will be issued to men only"...

I wouldn't issue any such permits. But I understand that the back of the BeastBuzz tickets may serve as such permits.

This whole topic reminds me of the first 40 seconds of this video.

Back to Seattle for a sec, we were there the better part of the week over Memorial Day weekend. There was one pretty day, fortunately, the day I spent at the Space Needle. In Vancouver we could only assume there were beautiful mountains all around us, because we couldn't see not one of 'em. It was rainy and dreary the entire time.
Still, the Pacific Northwest counts as one of the most beautiful places I ever visited. I'll second those amazing, tall evergreens everywhere. Wow.

Maybe the vote for worst weather ever should go to that stretch from Erie Pa through western and middle New York. If we had the kind of snow they get, like to the tops of the houses, I'd die.

Please lump Cleveland in that span as well. It doesn't always get lake effect snow, but the dreary factor is right up there.

The best park in FL for coasters is BGT by a mile. The collection of rides there is larger, and generally speaking, better than any where else in the state.

I would place the Universal Resort second. Both parks offer a couple solid roller coasters each; I give IOA the edge over USF.

After that Sea World and the Disney parks. Manta is a fantastic ride at Sea World, while Disney offers Space Mountain at MK and Everest at AK which are both great rides.

Iamgine how good BGT would be if Gwazi had gotten an RMC transformation and Cheetah Hunt had been a Megalite... THEN you'd have a park in Tampa!

I enjoy Mummy a lot, but I confess I don't think of it as highly as a lot of other people. Personally, I'm a huge sucker for the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, which is actually my favorite coaster in the Orlando area.

That's heavily due to the Aerosmith music and theme work, to be fair.

After all the great things I'd heard about Mummy, I was disappointed when I actually finally rode it. Rock 'N' Roller Coaster is a lot of fun. Expedition Everest is fun and currently my favorite Orlando coaster; I had the pleasure of riding it with a working Yeti and that was one of the few coasters that actually scared me.

(Don't laugh. One of the other coasters that actually scared me was Jack Rabbit at Kennywood. I was a baby enthusiast and I had never experienced a double down.)

Man, I've been an annual passholder for four months and still haven't been on R'n'R. Parenting is hard.

While I do love me some Mummy, its actually probably my lowest ranked coaster at Universal (of the major ones excluding Woody Woodpecker, Hippogriff, and P Flyers), rather than being a negative statement towards Mummy I think of it as a positive statement for the ride collection there in general.

Fun Spot will probably give the other parks a run for their money if they can add another ride on par with White Lightning.

Wow. I haven't ridden RRR, but I think you're the first person I've ever heard compare it favorably to Mummy.

Ditto. Mummy is by far my favorite at the Uni parks. If they made a version with florida's forwards section, Hollywoods's backwards section, cut out the confusing turntable and replace it with the second forward section from Florida (the whoe rest to the end) it would very likely be in my top 5 rides.
