  3. It looks like they may have sold 89 acres. Their 2020 annual report list their GA property as 2111 acres compared to 2200 in 2019.

  4. We need to update this Spotlight - workers couldn't turn off the buzzers (other than ripping the wires off the thing!). The buzzing use to the the worst part of operating the two circular car rides followed by boats with its bells. Kids were drawn to those noisemakers often hitting the buttons or pulling the bell's string before their parents even had a chance to strap them in. Funny thing, I just checked your profile Yoshi and if you happened to visit GA in 1985 or 1986 there is a good chance you were one of those button-pushing angels that I use to curse out to myself while w

  15. I was way behind in my Industry News reading. I'm glad I decided to get caught up, this debate was fun. I hope our site optimist and pessimist had fun debating each other. I will most likely not go to the park naked ever, to every ones relief, so I wont have to worry about those extremes. I have braved the hot days and would probably brave the cold days. I really enjoy the park and am so disappointed I didn't get to go at all in 2020. I hope I can make up for it in 2021

  24. On February 8, 2019, Kings Dominion shocked the amusement industry by announcing the removal of Volcano: The Blast Coaster. Reactions to the announcement were negative, because it was not only a fan favorite, but also a unique one-of-a-kind roller coaster. It was the only Intamin Suspended Catapult Coaster and the only one to feature a roll out loop. Volcano: The Blast Coaster opened on August 3, 1998. Upon opening, it had wait times anywhere between 3 to 5 hours. It became the fastest inverted roller coaster in the world. It also featured the tallest inversion on a roller coaster at 155 feet.

  25. I’m pleasantly surprised to see that Holiday in the Park has grown in popularity at least among park fans. It has left Fright Fest (Hallowfest) in the dust. I know it is my favorite time of year at the park.

  26. Hopefully they get a new train from Vekoma and some other upgrades. Aftershock at Silverwood Theme Park seems to run with minimal issues. It looks like Frontier City is removing Thunder Road Raceway (Go-Karts). There is a wood fence blocking off the area from the path in the park and the fence between Thunder Road Raceway and the maintenance area was removed. It is unclear if Renegade Rapids, which is next to this area, will also be removed. Feb. 3: Feb. 6: Edit: Source of Photos: https://www.facebook.com/groups/oklahomac

  28. This was added after I was in the age/height range to enjoy it. However, I was often sent as an employee to Looney Tunes Land in the mid-80's when the Parachute ride I worked was closed due to high winds. I was assigned to every attraction in that land except the Gymnasium (or as they called it as workers "the composite") because I was too tall. I didn't regret their decision!

  32. Here is a lift diagram I made for JERSEY DEVIL COASTER. **NOT OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS. SCHEMATICS BY XENITH.WAV, 2021 This diagram simulates the appearance of the lift hill with the full assembly installed. This diagram depicts the chain system in further detail. Note the direction of travel. The set-up for the lift motor/gear box is similar to that of Steel Vengeance. The main differences between the two are that (1) JDC's lift motor will most likely be at the base of the lift while Steel Vengeance's is at the top of the lift and (2) JDC'

  34. A big part of the problem is that some of the walkways are going on 47 years old. Just like sidewalks in a town, sometimes they need to be replaced especially given the foot traffic that some of the pathways endure. I just hope that when it does happen, they use concrete and not asphalt. Concrete is so much nicer and stamped concrete to match a theme is even better.

  36. "(Angel is a) Centerfold" by J. Geils Band. I remember that getting a lot of play on Musik Express, and I always thought the song went well with the motion of the neighboring Enterprise. I always picture Enterprise spinning in dappled summer sunlight when I hear the "Na-na-na-na-na-na" part of the song.
