Re: Where are you going 2017?

So far we've been to: SFOT Hershey Dorney Knoebels SFGADV Waldameer Kennywood Cedar Point Kings Island Holiday World That's probably going to be it for the summer. I'm sure a trip or two back to SFOT may happen. I am trying to get a few free days from work to go down to San Antonio to ride the new c...

Re: Holiday World's Thunderbird: A Review

Great review, the coaster looks really cool. I guess I have another reason to venture out to southern Indiana one day!

Re: Justice League: Battle for Metropolis 4D

I got a chance to ride this at SFOT last week. The ride is absolutely amazing and is sure to be a huge hit for both parks. Trying to work on a more detailed review(if I can find some free time). Needless to say I was blown away by the quality of this attraction, it's not just "good for SF", this wou...

Re: Rocky Mountain Texas

I had a great time too! I was shocked at how well bullet was running, definitely an insanely good ride with a layout I still can't figure out, really glad they did all of the work on it recently.

Re: What Will Be Your First Park Of 2015?

I like the way you think Paul! Unfortunately my work situation is very very fluid, so it's hard to plan multi day trips( the FL trip we're taking is during my only week of vacation this year). However, if I can get myself back on a job with set days off, SFOG will most definitely be added. Alabama s...

Re: What Will Be Your First Park Of 2015?

SFOT opens in a few weeks, so thats my most likely destination for my first park this year. There is a chance work will force me to be in the Houston area, in which case I'll be visiting kemah boardwalk and Galveston pleasure pier regularly. Central Florida vacation in June, and likely a quick trip ...

Local news seems to be a skeptical as we are. I don't believe this is happening at all. I'd love to be proven wrong, but I'm not holding my breath.

Re: Doing Anything Different During The Offseason?

There is a large zip line park a few hours away that my wife wants to do, other than that we got nothing. Thankfully the offseason is relatively short here in the south!

Re: What new for 2015 attraction are you looking forward to

Wicked cyclone looks amazing. Cannibal also looks interesting. I'm looking forward to the justice league rides as well, as it appears they are really doing them right. Also looking froward to trying batman at SFFT, I have a feeling I'll either love it, or hurl, depending on how much spin it gives!

Re: What Are Your 5 Favorite Parks & Why?

Epcot: I could spend 2 days just exploring world showcase here. Test Track and Soarin are also two of my favorite rides anywhere. Test Track and Soarin rock. Still one of these days I'd love to hit EPCOT and do the whole "Drinking Around The World" challenge with a bunch of you. Also I could easily...

Re: What Are Your 5 Favorite Parks & Why?

I'll give it a shot Also in no particular order SFOT: the park I grew up visiting. Still has a bit if classic charm to it in older parts of the park. Also features one of the very best steel coaster lineups anywhere. New Texas Giant is a masterpiece and worth the price of a season pass to ride over ...

Re: Negative G family reunion

I will be at the park that day, and would love to meet up with some of you during the day and grab a ride or two! Had I known I would be sent to MO for the month I would have signed up for DDD as it looks like a great event! Nothing beats hanging out with other coaster nerds and making new friends!
