Re: August Trips

Re: E-Readers

Kevin has a Kindle and loves it. Gets all kinds of stuff from the library and reads like a madman. The best reason to go with a Kindle is the lighted case- it gets its juice from the device and offers good protection and something nice to hold on to. The current pricing of the special offers ones is...

KIng's Island Flash passes

For a mere $50 you too can receive icy stares from those in the regular line! I honestly don't think they'll sell many except for Saturdays and the Haunt. I'm worried this may spill over to Cedar Point. http://tickets.visitkingsisland.com/shop/shopping_corporate_partners_list.cfm The vitriol on Face...

Re: Darien Lake accident

I honestly can't think of ever seeing signage about prosthetics, though I've read it online plenty of times. If the ride ops let knowingly let him go, some serious stuff is gonna hit the fan. :(

Re: Darien Lake accident

He may have just been wearing pants. The ride staff wouldn't have realized he had 2 prosthetics.

Re: The New Texas Giant

Gotta agree with Mike- serious pops on 3 or 4 different hills. And those missing laterals? They're because of the 90 degree banks! There are a bunch of twisting drops that remind me of Evel, and three disco-lighted tunnels not unlike Demon. I was also really surprised about the length of the ride. T...

Re: A cool shirt Idea...

ACE has (had?) bumper stickers that said "Coaster Lovers Do It in the Back Seat" and one for the front seat too.

Personally, I prefer to do it on a middle bench, whenever possible. :wink:

CP motels?

What are some alternatives to the Breakers Express? I know there are a bunch up there, but I've also heard some are questionable. Recommendations?

Re: Bert the Conqeuror at Holiday World!

Thankfully, the weather was gorgeous and it was a very pleasant day to spend outside- 65 and sunny by the end of the day. There were plenty of whiners about how hot it was and all I could think was "DUDE! It's been 50 and rainy for the last 3 weeks. STFU and enjoy the sunshine!" I'm sure the heat wh...

Re: Bert the Conqeuror at Holiday World!

We won't be there until 8 or after on Thursday. (Damn employment.) But there'll still be time for adult beverages! This hotel is the source of our running gag about bottle openers at hotels- we bought beer at the Kwikie Mart in Santa Claus, asked for an opener at the front desk, just got a clueless ...

The one ad I really enjoy at SFStL is the M&M stairs. I could look at those all day. Do you know any details about them, Greg?

Re: Kings Island opening day (4/30/11)

We saw the Racer evac! We arrived later than we would have liked (Allie had 9am volleyball game) and only stayed for 2.5 hours. Our first ride was the log ride. A very poor choice that I should have vetoed, but I was being a good sport. Soaked to the bone in jeans. I.was.pissed. (Kevin texted me lat...
