  2. Prosthetics and Riding Rides

    It will be interesting to see how it plays out
  3. I forgot to mention this in a recent trip report and I figured this would make a good topic in itself While at Hershey back in Aug we noticed a younger boy who had one prosthetic leg (knee down) Must have been like 10-14 years of age. We noticed him basically everywhere we went in the park, he actually was getting around better than most people. He was on a bunch of the same rides we where on, including coaster. While we where on line for lighting racers we saw he was in the train in front of us. They wherent dispatching the train and you saw the ride ops talking in the corner. After about 5 mins they went over to the boy talked with him, couldn't here what he was saying, but the ride ops head kept making the "no" motion, the look on the kids face was of disappointment. After that went on for a little while they un locked his car and he got off the ride. I can only assume it was because of his leg and at this point myself and everyone around us knew exactly what had happened and we all got pretty bummed out. Even the lady next to us with her kids said she saw him earlier in the day riding other coaster. His leg only seemed to have the issue from the knee down so not really sure why such a big deal was made. If you saw him walking/running during the day you would think there wasn't even an issue at all. My point is what's the rule with cases like this? I see some rides (in general) state "you need 3 functioning limbs to ride" I felt bad for the kid. I assume this is a state by state law? When we went to Cedar Point in July a guy with a full leg cast road Maverik with no issue. it was even to the point he had to prop his leg up and place it between the row of seats in front of him. That to me is worse then the little boys situation

  5. Misc GA Mumblings

    the lockers should have outlets in them that allow you to plug a charge i. actually I'm going to go patent that idea lol
  6. Misc GA Mumblings

    sounds like its time for a new phone lol
  7. Prosthetics and Riding Rides

    I mean this kids leg stood out because he was wearing shorts, but if he had pants on there is no way it would have been noticed. I felt for him
  8. Miscellaneous Mumblings

    https://sesameplace.com/philadelphia/rides/oscars-wacky-taxi/ seems like a fun family ride
  9. The State of the Park Going Forward

    Using Hershey as an example.... What is that height measured from? The ground the coaster is actually built on or the lowest point in the park? That could work to their advantage in some cases I guess. The drop tower being at the top of a hill makes it seem higher than it really is when your up at the top
  10. The State of the Park Going Forward

    just add it, get the ride count up lol Every time I have gone to ride the Wonder wheel it was closed so I gave up lol
  11. The State of the Park Going Forward

    I wouldn't scrap the big wheel, its a nice relaxing ride. not to mention the views are great
  12. The State of the Park Going Forward

    If money was? no object Id pay Cedar Fair to buy the park lol they could use a nice big north east coast presence
  13. Hersheypark, 9/16/17

    Nice report seems like you made a good call by going to the park even though it was a sat. I agree with all your comments about Wildcat and Comet. I still say Wildcat during Candy Lane is like a different ride vs riding it in the summer. its so much smoother in the cold weather. I wish Comet was open for the winter event as well. Laff Trax, I cant understand why the ride is ALWAYS so long. The last time I went in July on a Friday was the shortest line I have waited. The outside line was till 3/4 full at that point. I just don't know why it takes so long, is it that popular? I cant say its because of dispatch because they seem to be on the ball with that.
  14. Its a seat belt.... I never heard of a properly secured seat bely coming in clicked she probably didn't push it in far enough to have it "click" in the first place. And if its true the ride op never checked, 1-shame on him and 2- there would be no way of knowing it was secured or not in the first place. Looks like someone is just trying to make a buck
  15. Misc GA Mumblings

    sad regardless
  16. Misc GA Mumblings

    Not that I want to harp on this but but they keep saying "lift truck" like a fork lift? and the forks hit him? I cant imagine any other scenario. If he was just hit hit by a truck and I cant see how a truck could be traveling that fast in the park as to cause a death
  17. Kennywood Removing Log Jammer

    I like Dorney Parks log flume
  18. Yeah Batman is more of a bad ass and has cool cars lol
  19. Lost features on rides

    I really miss all the props from the Batman ride and miss the black paint
  20. ...were removing. So I was thinking about this and there are a few coaster that I could say I honestly would not miss if the park announced they where going to remove them. My top 3 1- Green Lantern 2-Suoerman 3-Batman lets see what you guys think PS if this is in the wrong section feel free to move it. I wasn't sure what the best spot would be
  21. Worker killed?

    Surprised nothing has been posted about this. Screamscape stated a work was killed over the weekend while stringing lights. Was hit by a "lift truck" air lifted to a local hospital and later passed away
  22. That coaster at SFFT ic no where close to being capable of handling our crowds
