Re: For Everyone Coming To Daredevil Daze

What was is it like to see the old hannibarrels ride in its current state? Could you walk on to the ride and such and look at the cars?

Re: New for Adventureland (Iowa) 2014

Re: SFGAdv 2015 rumor

You know whats funny is that you look from google maps and there is enough room to squeeze a pathway between the two rides enough to drive a car through maybe a little wider, there was never a need to remove the coaster. You know how cool it would be to walk by three coaster running at once (countin...

Re: Silver Dollar City, Sept 7-8, 2013

About that phone battery issue: I charged the phone in the room overnight. It only went to 96%. I unplugged it and re-plugged it and it took another hour to get to 100%. I also noticed that it stayed near 100% all morning until I got to the park. I took a few pics before it opened, then sat down to...

Re: 2013 Golden Ticket Awards

What is up with Holiday World this year?

HW for 2013:
Best water park
The voyage is in the top ten
Cleanest park

Last year they won all that plus:
Friendlies
The Raven was still in the top ten

So I am guessing the raven is finally losing its charm on people lol

Re: New for Adventureland (Iowa) 2014

I know, right? Are there any differences between the ride experiences? (Except for getting stuck at the top for 4 hours) Nope probably not, you just spin around and around, and probably be a mere 100ft to keep cost down, the promotional image ain't even there's :roll: Other wise its just the good o...

Re: New for Adventureland (Iowa) 2014

:shock: OMG OMG OGMG. Sorry, back together. THIS IS AWESOME! We have NOT had any new dry rides for a LONG time! (Except the return of the very missed Scrambler) Edit: Although I do wish it was the type that Six Flags uses. But when I do ride this, I will keep my fingers crossed to get stuck up ther...

Re: NEW for Holiday World 2014

According to Paula over at TPR (yes she is a member), the parking lot will be a multi-year project and they will get a "good start" on the Legend Lot this year. Also: The swinging ship is not a major portion of the budget. (You wouldn't believe how much the parking lot improvements cost - ghastly!) ...

Re: NEW for Holiday World 2014

Must be a ton of little stuff to total $8 mil. Still I have been saying since Thanksgiving was announced that they needed a swinging ship and to call it the Mayflower. The covered bridge down into Thanksgiving will be great as that area can bake. I am curious about the parking lot improvements beca...
