  1. I really like Joker's Jinx. Be very careful with your car there through. It is the only park somebody tried to break into my car.
  2. It was at Epcot back in the 90's when I was a kid.
  3. SFStL has a mirror image Batman. For me, I never got sick on any ride. However, I have gotten sick from bad food or colds at theme parks, mainly Disney. Once ate undercooked chicken at Disney, another time had ginger ice cream that did not agree with me, most other times I picked up weird bugs there.
  4. Last Sunday, as I was driving out of the park in the exit driveway through the woods, some dipcrap was driving the wrong way through the exit driveway and against all the cars leaving the park.
  5. I always hit Lafftrax first in the morning.
  6. Similar incident happened to me and mother, back when I was around 5 in 1990. Two german guys got into our car, only ever ride share with strangers on the Skyride.
  7. They probably do want to install improved flood controls as the entrance was at a low point. Also the old entrance was a bottleneck on busy days. Still it would be nice if they went with a better style for their new entrance than more plain factory.
  8. April 22 -24 will probably be crowded with large bus groups.
  9. I am going to miss the old Tudor entrance. The artwork for the new factory entrance looks boring.
  10. On Sunday I was at the park by myself, and they made another single rider ride with me on Sky Screamer, anc they sat another person by me on Runaway Mine Train. Never seen the park do either before.
  11. Yes, but the business will charge a higher total price, even if there is no interest charged by them, which can offset whatever interest you might earn in a short term investment. Interest rates are generally pretty low for short term investments. Just for an example, suppose you can buy an item for $60 now, or for 4, $20 payments with zero interest which still totals $80. Many businesses do this to offset the time value cost of delayed payment to them, and often do not list the total to customers. This is a topic probably better suited for a different thread since I didn't mean to sidetrack 29's trip report. I visited the park on Sunday, wasn't too busy. Most of the rides were running. Only issue was that JL was stacking really bad and interupting the ride. Hopefully they will solve that soon.
  12. You always get charged more when you pay in installments rather than all at once due to the time value of money. Some of those benefits used to be included on the season passes and are just a way to make the memberships seem to have greater value than they do. The sad fact is they are turning their backs on SP owners and trying to force them to go with memberships to pad out their cash inflows from operations.
  13. It sucks, also I added up the payments, and even the lowest membership costs more in total than a season pass.
  14. An ABS wheel sensor went bad on my truck, but I can't get the brakes off to reach it because the bolts are frozen from road salt. Not even PB blaster is working. If my torch doesn't work, I will have to take it to a shop.
