Re: Best Photos of 2015

When I get home I will fine a pic and post it here. The hard part is finding a favorite of the thousands...probably tens of thousands I took. Probably one of the pics of Bond and I on Thunderbird.

Re: Kings Island-Kentucky Kingdom-Holiday World

It shouldn't be too packed. I would try to work either HW or KI on a weekday. As for where to stay that all depends on which direction you are coming from and if you are going to be too tired after hitting a park all day to want to drive an hour or hour and a half to the next hotel.

Re: Holiday World Renovates the Legend

I agree with that as that entrance is the toughest part and kind of detracts from the fun of the helix. I hope they go through and retracked the entire coaster. One thing I was surprised about was their choice of GCI over the Gravity Group. Does the GG do retracking? GG goes not do the build work t...

I just want them to replace the top level of steel at the bottom of the dip that goes into the helix as it has been rough as hell for a decade. Whenever they have replaced wood there they always put the steel back when that is the pr...

Re: Oz Cat falls

I saw that and what really impressed me is how much abuse that structure took before it went down. It shows just how much flex wooden coasters have.

Still it is sad to see the Oz Cat and the "bam bam" go.

Re: Dave Roemer is retiring at the end of the season

I did get an email from Dave confirming that he is indeed retiring in February. I wish we had known at Daredevil Daze so we could have done something for him then but maybe we could have him come as a guest for Daredevil Daze 2016.
