  1. That’s a shame for anyone that liked the ride. I guess it’s only a matter of time before Twister is gone too.
  2. https://www.timesleader.com/top-stories/769856/heart-of-the-valley-with-a-heart-committee-looks-into-possible-return-of-rocky-glen-park Even if the new park was small on the scale of something like Quassy, it would still be good to have another park option. I occasionally drive past the old Rocky Glen park area with the sign still up and makes me wish I could have visited the park, just like how I never got to visit Willow Grove Park previously living less than 15 minutes away from where it was since the park site has been a mall my entire life.
  3. It seems strange to me an employee would suggesting hiding a phone near a smoking area to avoid using a locker. I know it's possible that really happened but just seems unlikely. Even if an employee really did suggest it, why would they risk their phone getting stolen or damaged rather than pay the $1 for the locker.
  4. I really like this direction Sea World has been taking of adding major coasters. I know Disney and Universal are supposed to be more than coaster parks but I always hoped 1 park in Orlando would have more than 2 or 3 thrill coasters.

  6. I already voted for "Yes, someday" but am not so sure now. I have heard that some people visiting the park alone have been stopped by security at the park, in some cases multiple times asking why they are there and other security guards asking for ID even if they were just walking around the park, taking pictures of rides or sitting at a bench. If someone was doing something suspicious or causing trouble, I can see security stopping people, but for someone doing nothing wrong, I don't feel like paying $50 or $60 to have that happen and take away any fun I had from visiting the park.
  7. I would vote for HITP over any other event because the ability to ride coasters in November and December and now having a around a 3 month offseason is what I consider to be one of the greatest things Six Flags has ever done.
  8. That would be fun to go to a water park in January without having to go to a warmer weather state like Florida or Texas.
  9. I went to Hersheypark on Monday for Christmas Candylane for my final park visit of the season. Because of Chocolate Town Construction, there is a new temporary entrance to the park setup in between Fahrenheit and The Claw. You can take the tram from near Chocolate World to the new entrance or walk. There are only a few security lines and there is not a no bags line like there usually is probably because there wasn't enough room. Candymonium looks amazing and I can't wait to try the coaster next season. I'm also hoping they will have it running for Christmas Candylane next season although I am not expecting that. There weren't as many closed rides as my last trip in October but not even counting the 7 coasters closed for the season, there will still more rides closed than expected. Wave Swinger, Whip, Pirate, Sky Ride, Sidewinder, Ferris Wheel, 2 out of 3 Triple Towers and some kids rides were all closed. The park wasn't that crowded but with the ride closures and rides not running at full capacity, lines were longer than they should have been. Wildcat was only running 1 train with the 2nd train covered on the transfer tracks which led to at least a 45 minute wait by the mid afternoon. I like Laff Trakk's Christmas retheme with a giant tree with lights in the middle of the ride and some other holiday theming. sooperdooperLooper is my favorite coaster at the park that is operating in December and I got 3 rides before the line got bad. The dispatches were fast. Only the Hershey Triple Tower was running and it had a breakdown. It remained closed and the Kisses Tower was then opened instead. It's a slow launch but for the smallest of the 3 towers, still has some good airtime at the top. For anyone with a 2019 pass and renewed to either a Regular Size or King Size 2020 pass, Sweet Lights admission is free. It's a drive through lights attraction near the park is was really great. It takes about 30 minutes to drive through and there are multiple themed sections. The first is Hersheypark and Christmas theming. Then it's the 12 Days of Christmas, Enchanted Forest, Victorian Village and some other winter theming. The normal price is $20 for a weekday and $27 for a weekend for a car. It can also get very crowded, it was only about a 10 minute wait to get to the entrance and I hear on the weekend it can take 90 minutes in line. Ride Count: Reese's Cupfusion, 1x sooperdooperLooper, 3x Wild Mouse, 2x Laff Trakk, 2x Kisses Triple Tower, 1x Music Express, 1x Wildcat, 2x Temporary Entrance Fahrenheit is being repainted. Merry Dip Fun Slides are gone. They were rarely open. Storm Runner display at Sweet Lights.
  10. The 2019 Warner Awards voting is now open. Vote for your favorite choices.
  11. Is it one of the games from HITP where you have to throw a hoop around something like a tree or present?
  12. I hope so too, Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster also has a single rider line. I'd also like to see the single rider lines start at the entrance to the queue like at most other parks or how some Six Flags parks allow single riders to use the Flash Pass line with a lanyard or card to show they are a single rider.
  13. I miss the hologram billboards more than anything else no longer working. It was cool to ride past them with it looking like a clown was jumping out of the billboard.
