  1. It was WAY longer than anticipated, but we're now on a fully secure server and (hopefully) our Forums and Gallery are all more stable and secure now as well.

  3. A few weeks ago we took a a trip to the Hudson Valley to visit the newly opened Legoland New York Resort. Having been to the Legoland parks in San Diego and Winter Haven I knew what to expect and anticipated that the New York version would be on the smaller side given it was its first season of operations. Even though it was smaller than the two other locations, surprisingly it still offered a wide range or rides, and entertainment to keep you busy with a fun day of activities (especially if you are into Lego). Built on former farmland, the park spreads out pretty far with what seems like plenty of room for expansion. Although Legoland parks aren't known for thrill rides, the difference in elevation between the front of the park and the back portion is quite dramatic and would make for an excellent future terrain coaster. In addition to several kids-only rides, the park offers a handful of rides suitable for the entire family, as well as two dark rides (Lego Factory Adventure Ride (trackless ride) and Lego Ninjago The Ride (target ride)), an extensive Miniland model area, and a 4D theater. We found the in park food to be much better than the other two locations. We also spent a night at the Legoland Hotel which offered themed rooms based on some of Lego's most popular brand. We chose a pirate themed room which came complete with plenty of professional nautical models made of Lego and an in-room treasure hunt. As far as convenience, the hotel is located steps from the main entrance to the theme park which can't be beat. We had a great time! Here are just a handful of photos of the park.

  4. I spent a lot of time on the red loop far side. I was the new kid on the ride and most of the old crew had done their time. Talk about shake! Best part was the view and If you dosed off the incoming train would shake you awake. this was 1991 btw

  7. Some are saying that it’s gonna be renamed to Riddler’s Revenge. I really hope that’s not gonna be the case. Here’s a chance to finally give the ride a proper Western name and theme that it should’ve had since 1999.

  8. Looks like the park heard us loud and clear - according to the Six Flags website, different levels of season passes are now being offered at a fair yearly price! 2022 Season Pass rates are as follows: Basic: $69.99 Gold Plus (includes parking and admission to all other Six Flags parks): $79.99 Platinum (adds unlimited soft drinks + 25% discount): $99.99 Diamond (adds preferred parking, skip the line pass, and 35% discount): $149.99 Diamond Elite (adds a second skip the line pass, Fright Fest haunted house, and 50% discount): $219.99 The prices above are very much in line with their monthly membership counterparts. I'm so happy that these options exist and am going to inquire about upgrading my current basic pass to a higher tier.

  11. Who remembers when Great Adventure's Rolling Thunder was bathed in bright white spotlights and looked so impressive at night?

  12. I went to Busch Gardens on Friday. It was the first day of Christmas Town but I did not stay late enough to see the lights but will visit again when I can stay later in the day. It wasn't too crowded, only Cobra's Curse and Sand Serpent had lines of more than 10 minutes. Cobra's Curse was a posted 45 minute wait although it was probably less. I used my 1 Quick Queue there. Sand Serpent only runs 4 cars and doesn't dispatch a car until the previous car is almost to the drops after the hairpin turns. What would be under a 10 minute wait at The Dark Knight was a posted 30 minute wait here. With the log flume closed for annual maintenance and Falcon's Fury closed all day, that only left the train, rapids, carousel and bumper cars as non coaster rides open. Besides the Screamin Swing that is supposed to be added, some more non coaster rides are really needed. The park is decorated very well, it reminded me a lot of Holiday in the Park. Besides being able to meet Santa, there was also a Rudolph meet and greet. Cheetah Hunt is being repainted and supposed to reopen later next month. Ride Count (once each): Cobra's Curse Montu Scorpion Tigris Sheikra

  13. Anyone who experienced Lightnin' Loops probably recalls the lofty staircase you had to climb to get to the ride's trains. Who recalls how the staircase use to shake when the trains were launched?

  15. Photo is from the park’s Instagram story. Can’t personally say I would be a fan of a Bizarro to Riddler transformation. It’s taking a ride theme that’s already out of place and making it potentially worse. That being said, something to boost the ride’s popularity would be a good thing.

  17. Yes, the Drive-Thru operates on days when the regular HITP is not being held. HITP operating days are in general the same as previous years.

  19. I was at Sea World on Friday of Labor Day weekend to see Electric Ocean/Ignite. Unfortunately from getting there at 6:00 to about 8:30, it rained the entire time and the rides were closed. The rides reopened but there wasn't enough time to get to the Ignite viewing area and stop at any rides. I hadn't ridden Mako since June on the drive to FL from PA and before going to Animal Kingdom stopped at Sea World for a 90 minute visit. Mako was having minor technical difficulties but there was an announcement that they recommend staying in line because it shouldn't take too long. 5 minutes later and the ride was running again. Only 1 train was running but it was only a 1-2 train wait. It felt great to ride a B&M Hyper again and for now, Mako remains my favorite coaster in Florida. After 3 rides I walked over to Kraken that also had 1 train running with a mostly empty station. Unfortunately, Kraken is a little rough and is probably my least favorite floorless coaster because of that but it's still a good coaster. Journey to Atlantis had a posted 20 minute wait but didn't have anyone else in line. This has become one of my favorite rides with it being a mix of a dark ride, flume and coaster. I would have liked to have tried the original version with all the effects and storyline working. After 2 rides I left and went to Animal Kingdom. Crowds are still low at Disney. Other than the 2 Pandora rides, everything else was a 10 minute wait or less. Kilimanjaro Safaris is always fun with a lot of animals to see although I prefer Great Adventure's Safari. Navi River Journey is cool with all the glowing theming but would be better with more animatronmics. We got on the last train to Rafiki's Planet Watch and got to the last Animation Experience of the day. Animation Academy was one of my favorite things at Hollywood Studios and was glad to see that the experience was still available in the parks. After It's Tough To Be A Bug, I went to ride Dinosaur. Other than watching the pre-show, there was no waiting and I got my own ride vehicle. It was fun to ride Dinosaur with no one else there. Since there was no line, I was offered a re-ride. Primeval Whirl is being removed and some of the track is already gone. I hope they add a new coaster or some kind of new ride to replace it. There are 50th Anniversary statues all over the 4 WDW parks.

  20. I remember the red loop shook more than the blue loop because of the extra height.
