Re: Odd tastes in coasters?

Little late on getting in on the conversation, but I certainly have an odd taste for TOGO stand up coasters like Shockwave, and the long gone King Cobra. They are dying bred of coasters for sure, but they hold a lot of nostalgia for me. I also really enjoyed the Georgia Cyclone circa 2010 at point w...

Re: Kentucky Kingdom adds Lightening Run!!!!

Hummm. ... not what I expected but I'm sure the park will get what they paid for out of this. I only wish that the name were a little more creative. I mean now they have Thunder Run and Lighting Run to go with it? Anyone notice they kept the font for the logo the same as Greezed Lighting and paid a ...

Trip Report: Thunder Run 10-10-2013

As I sit down to write this trip report I must say I had no intentions of doing this but the excitement of today just can't be contained. I can remember when I was little and watching Peter Pan. In Peter Pan there is a scene in which Tinkerbell is dying and Peter looks to the audience and say someth...

I think of one other individual who introduced us to his girlfriend and he's getting married. So taking the girlfriend is a plus. :wink:

Re: Kentucky Kingdom is a Go!!!

Thunder Run was absolutely amazing in its opening season. The laterals on the turn after the first drop were great, then there were three successively larger hills that produced wicked airtime. It was the surprise hit of my trip that year. The "Hurler" coasters have pretty much the same layout, but...

Re: The walking dead thread

Ok so I'm a little late on this, however I have some thoughts about season 3 after now catching all the episodes. First off, really Andrea you didn't think the Governor was blowing smoke up your butt after things didn't add up? Really, did the Gov. have to kill all those innocent people? Who'd thoug...

Demon where you been? LOL, you're right the rides weren't to bad. In fact it was actually fairly ridable with nobody on the ride besides us.

Cedar Point...Help

Does anyone know for sure if there are discount tickets at Meijers or Kroger stores near Cedar Point? Or for that matter discount tickets to CP that general public could access? I've got a friend who's looking to go soon. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Gump

Re: Holiday World Opening Weekend

Okay, you hit a personal sore spot with me. What do you mean the mid-course brake could have been less? It's impossible to get less than none. Dude - the brakes don't grab the train. They open, let the train pass, and then close, and that's what I love about Holiday World. The only time those brake...
