  1. It was open for parts of the day yesterday, I rode it in the morning and then was closed in the early afternoon before reopening again later in the day.

    After over 2 months I finally got to go to the park again one more time before leaving for my freshman year of college on Thursday. I didn’t know what to expect going in but it was a great day with low crowds the whole time, and I got a lot of rides in. I got to the park a bit later than usual, arriving at about 11:30. Upon arriving I saw that Joker was open with the line only out to where the single rider line starts so I went there first and waited about 20 mins. I got the purple side for the first time and it was better than I thought it would be even though it doesn’t have the full
  3. I'm 18 and I actually use both interchangeably. I voted "Six Flags" since that's what I use a bit more often though.
  4. In specific relation to the movie I wouldn't have an issue with it since the title refers to the 'suicide missions' they go on in the movie and that's it. Thinking about it the movie it would actually make a really good dark ride. Only problem is it might not be as family friendly as JL would be.
  5. I choose spring since all the coasters are open and they generally have the shortest lines of the whole year. Second would be winter for HITP, I was really impressed with it when I went last year.
  6. They're removing the condor? That's one of my favorite flat rides too, at least I got to ride it when I was there a couple of weeks ago.
  7. They still missed a great tie-in with these drop towers lol I like the idea of towers of different heights but I'm not sure I really understand the point of the middle "Reeses" tower. Anyone who would be comfortable going on it would probably just go on the tallest one.
  8. Yeah the waterpark needs some improvement to better handle crowds...although for what it's worth the waits for the slides were a lot shorter at the same time the next day. Second part is finally here: Since I hadn’t ridden Skyrush yet I went to it first and got to ride it twice, with about a 5 min wait each time, once in a back row middle seat and once in the second to last row left wing seat. Since for some reason this ride doesn’t hurt me at all it’s one of my favorite coasters, its intensity is unmatched by anything else I’ve ridden. Next I rode Comet which was about a 20 minut
  9. Although it would probably work for theming I wouldn't want VR on Skull since it would wreck the capacity. If they're gonna do it I'd like it if they had times at the start or end of the day where they don't use the VR so people who don't care about it can ride the coaster with a shorter wait.
  10. Since I last visited Hersheypark 3 years ago, I had always wanted to go back. On this trip I was with the rest of my family so this trip was focused on more than just the coasters. Upon arriving at the park the first day, I checked the park’s app which said Fahrenheit was still only a 15 minute wait, so I went to it first and waited slightly under the posted wait time for the last row. With a great first drop and strong forces throughout, I enjoyed this coaster a lot. Next was Storm Runner, which wasn’t loading the back two cars on each train when I first arrived in the station. I
  11. This thread right now has me like this lol In all seriousness I'm coming to terms with the idea of the JL dark ride in Old Country, although I would have rathered a coaster in that spot the dark ride with any eventual flats they might add will still reopen and bring life to this section of the park, which is what I've always wanted in the first place.
  12. ^^ Or what if the wooden planks are for a fence to go around a construction site like they did with Lakefront last year? We should look to see where it goes...
  13. It seems like this pretty much guarantees that next year's new ride(s) will be in Old Country. Also what exactly is the "Joker cam" going to be? It looks kind of disjointed with all the separate tv screens.
  14. ^ I have no doubt it's a fun ride and I wouldn't mind seeing it in the future, I just think plopping down another generic show building in the Old Country area would be a waste of potential for that space. I feel like that area is much better suited for the flat rides or a coaster.
  15. ^ Agreed, the SF system works well especially compared to my trip to Cedar Point a couple of years ago. I haven't been in HH to compare it to though, what do they do there that makes it so bad? How does getting tubes work in the waterpark? Does each slide have its own tubes or is there a spot to get one to use for the day? I'm going for the first time on Sunday.
  16. Would one fit in the open area where the grandstand used to be? That could give the effect you describe If flats were scattered throughout the park it would make it more likely for a new coaster to eventually go in Old Country.
  17. Great photo, the view of the fireworks over the coaster is great. Did they have the announced live music at the event?
  18. ^ That's cool that they have an actual prop from the movie at the ride's entrance. I've always been a bit curious about Indy since it's one of the only unique thrill attractions to be in a conventional 'Magic Kingdom' style Disney park, at least in the US. I would have much preferred it to be in Florida over Dinosaur.
  19. Throughout my visits to the park this year I've found that the food is a lot better than the park gets credit for, especially compared to other similar parks. I look forward to seeing what they do in the future, personally I'd like to see some more unique options at Best of the West.
  20. ^ Maybe they could put them throughout the rest of Old Country? Put a flat ride where the music express was and put another one where the old bumper car building is now. This plus a future new coaster where Chiller was would bring the whole right side of the park back to life.
  21. ^ I really hope they don't do the train wraps... That new commercial is the best one I've seen them have in a while, I like that all the rides they show are from our park. Even though it's a small detail some people watching might not notice they still put in the effort for it.
  22. Sounds like you had a great trip! I found that Millennium Force comes alive at night and is a much better ride, although I've never ridden Superman SFNE to compare it to. I agree exactly with your opinion of Mean Streak, I would love to see what RMC could do with it.
  23. I agree with this, given all the problems the VR causes to operations at the other SF parks, this is probably the only option at our park that wouldn't drastically increase lines. If people get set up with the helmets in the queue, the fast dispatching cars wouldn't likely be a big issue. I wouldn't want it on Skull Mtn. since its station is pretty small already and it would really bring down its capacity. Also, I sort of get a kick out of its completely random music and props although I'm probably in the minority on that.
