  1. ^ El Toro is easily my favorite ride in the park, hope you enjoy it! Some of the best airtime I've ever experienced.
  2. ^ Agreed, given how much this costs it seems easy enough to simply plan ahead and go to the park on days it won't be as crowded to save $400 on flash passes.
  3. ^ If it does have to do with the fins, I think having one side be less intense would actually be a cool idea to expand the amount of people who would be willing to ride it. I'm looking forward to trying this, it looks like nothing I've ever ridden before!
  4. Great report and nice pics! I was in the park that day too, since it was my third visit this month already I went at a more relaxed pace though. I tried some of the food trucks, the waffle truck was my favorite!
  5. ^ That would be a cool collectible set, I'd buy it
  6. ^ Enjoy it! Ka front row is really awesome! I'm also gonna be in the park for a bit tomorrow, I'm going to go on a few rides and then try out some of the food. Since I'm busy most of May it's my last chance to go until Memorial Day weekend.
  7. It says "food and wine sampling costs an additional fee" but only lists the price of the wine tasting. If you just want food I guess you pay at each truck separately?
  8. Nice report! Wicked Cyclone seems like an awesome ride, I would love to get to ride a RMC. Also after reading your report I'm really glad our park doesn't assign seats.

    ^ I actually used to gray out on Nitro's helix but for some reason I just grew out of it. Batman's helix came pretty close, that coaster is deceptively intense. Nitro#1, your day sounds like how mine started last week. I guess it's just early season problems, I'd hope that by summer they'll have everything open with the park each day.

    Today was another great day at the park. It started off pretty empty and became a lot more crowded as the day went on. I started off going to Kingda Ka since I saw trains running but it went down as soon as I got in line so I left and went to Toro, which had a mostly empty station. I got to ride it 4 times without leaving the station, with the ride ops openly allowing rerides. While I was at Toro I also saw that Zumanjaro had gotten stuck with riders on it. Once Toro’s station filled up I went back to Ka, which had reopened, and waited about a half hour for the front row. It was
  11. Nice pics! It's cool to see all the changes and rehabs going on. Did the boy scout event have a big effect on crowds? If not I might head up to the park for a bit tomorrow

    When I was at BotW it seemed like they were having a hard time keeping up with the amount of people ordering burgers but whenever someone ordered anything else it was ready quickly. I had a grilled chicken sandwich and fries and it was ok--good quality but rather plain. I can't wait until Macho Nacho opens for the season, I really liked their food last year.

    It was an awesome day. Crowds were light and operations improved as the day went on. Since most of the coasters were still closed at park opening due to the cold, my first ride of the season was Skull Mountain. I got to stay in the back row for three straight rides without getting up. Next was a walk on for Skyscreamer, which I find underrated. I try to ride it whenever I’m in the park. I also saw the Harley Quinn train parked on the lift when I was in the area. At that point, Nitro opened up with two trains so I went over to it and rode three times without leaving the station--on
  14. I was at the park today and saw the train parked on the lift but didn't see it test, I meant to take a pic but forgot to so I'm glad you took some. I'm looking forward to trying out Joker too, it's different from anything I've ever done before!
  15. I'm going Sunday too for my first trip of the year, it's supposed to be about 50 and sunny with no wind. Looking forward to it!
  16. ^ To me the problem with smoking is having to smell it while walking around the park. I know it won't have any lingering effects but the smell is really unpleasant to me so I just hold my breath until I pass by it but it's still an inconvenience. It also probably serves as a bad example for families with children in the park.
  17. I haven't seen any tv commercials yet but I did hear a radio one a couple of weeks ago advertising opening day and spring break at the park.
  18. Wow I don't think I've ever seen pics of the park that empty before. I actually almost headed out to the park that day but decided not to at the last minute. Looks like this weekend will be my first trip of the year.
  19. The theming in the old queue looks really well done, it would have been cool if the theming was extended to the ride itself so some of it could still be there now. I'm also a bit curious about Kingda Ka's original queue. How different was it from the queue today, and do you have any pics of it?
  20. I've been on 83 coasters. A pretty good count but ready for more!
  21. Although I don't love the amount of trees being cut down for this, I'm glad the park will be running on clean energy well into the future. Also hoping the money they save long-term will get us some bigger ride additions
  22. ^ Ok then, well one can hope they have Old Country plans right? Also, was some of the landscaping removed from Harley Quinn's infield? It kind of looks like it, if so some theming put around the ride track would be cool.
  23. I'm impressed with how Joker looks near the lake, and I like the view opened up where Grandstand used to be. Also, I find it curious that they've removed the drink stand and old Music Express queue in Old Country, in addition to the old Chiller station. The fact that they're spending the money to remove all this from an unused section of the park makes it seem like they have plans for the area in the near future.
