1. I know that Cedar Fair Platinum Passes are normally non-refundable, but is there a policy exception in place for this corona-stricken season? Can I get a refund?
2. When does a Platinum Pass kick into effect? Is it a year from the point of purchase? Is it a year from the moment it is...
The layout of Alabama’s Rampage was said to be modeled after Oakwood’s Megafobia. But while I’ve always heard high praise for Megafobia, people *really* rave about Rampage, so it’s a little bit of a puzzler to think the one was modeled on the other — and I don’t know if the word “clone” is...
If this coaster season happens, I’ll have an enthusiast friend from another country visit for a coaster road trip around the States. I thought it would be goofy-fun to make a coaster soundtrack playlist to play while driving.
I’m assembling the playlist on Spotify, to which I’m actually new but...
If you had to divide your favorite airtime moments into separate types, which coaster for you gives the best ejector air, which gives the best flojector air, and which gives the best floater air?
For me, it’s El Toro for ejector, Ravine Flyer II for flojector, and Behemoth for floater.
Do you have any personal coaster sets that you set out to complete and completed, or that you still have as a long-term goal?
I don’t mean a set you happened to complete along the way, going about your regular business as a coaster goon. I mean something you set for yourself far in advance as a...
When it comes to new parks and their credits, which one of these would you say you are?
A. I MUST get all the credits if at all possible. I must get them first. Only when I’ve gotten all the credits can I relax and ride other rides or get re-rides.
B. I’m really only interested in getting the...
Not really a trip report, but just quick check-ins, as I just did with the Euro trip. I wasn’t sure I was even going to do this much, but I’m stuck waiting for two hours right now, so I might as well eat some pizza and start a thread.
Keansburg Amusement Park said on its website that it opens...
What are your top Danish coasters (top 3 or 5 or 10)?
Recently I visited most of the major Danish parks (not Legoland), and I think my favorites from the trip aren’t quite the usual suspects — at least not the usual order.
2. Rutschebanen (Tivoli) — didn’t expect to love this so...
Hullámvasút at Budapest’s Holnemvolt Park is one of the oldest coasters in the world, but it has been SBNO since 2015.
Does anyone here know the situation? Are there plans to revive this ride? Or is it a dead relic already?
Thanks for any insight.
I've never done a trip report before, and I don't plan on doing a proper one now (with photos and amusing anecdotes and the like). I thought I might do this more as a series of brief check-ins, just to record quick impressions of each park right after the fact.
If anyone wants to respond to...
You see it all the time at parks, often in line in front of you.
“Come on! You’ll love it!” “No.” “Don’t be a wuss!” “No, no, no. No way.” “It’s not even scary.” “It looks terrifying.” “You’re almost on it now, and once it’s over you’ll love it.” “No. I’m getting out of line...
I’ve definitely found that people clearly have differing definitions of flojector, but — whatever it means to you — which coaster(s) in your mind is the best exemplar of great flojector air?
For me it would be:
1. Ravine Flyer II
3. American Thunder
Sure I’m forgetting...
I think this may be the least intrusive/disruptive place for me to ask this question?
Is there a thread somewhere on the forum — in park construction or elsewhere — devoted to Hot Go Dreamworld?
Apologies if I’m blind and missing it, but I can’t seem to find one.
Was there a park food that you heard hyped up before your first visit that, once you finally tried it, made you think, “This is what the fuss is about??”
I could name a few for myself, but I’ll start with one. I love Kennywood, but for years before I ever went I heard the stories of the great...
I don’t see this mentioned anywhere on this forum yet, but I’m probably just missing it. (If so, apologies, etc., etc.)
Anyway, apparently, at a Travis Scott concert the mayor of Houston just announced that the city is going to be getting a new amusement park. Travis Scott has an album called...
My top five are all small, mostly older woodies. Surprisingly nothing from Darien Lake makes my top five, although I suppose Ride of Steel might be close competition for number five.
1. Silver Comet — Fantasy Island
2. Comet — Great Escape
3. Cyclone — Coney Island
4. Dragon Coaster — Rye...
I’m not talking about the actual queue experience. I’m asking about the outward appearance of the coaster sign or entrance.
Which is your favorite?
For me there’s an easy winner. You may be familiar with the dragon’s mouth entrance to Dragon Mountain.
There is something on Zippin Pippin that I have never encountered on any coaster before, and both times it happened (I rode the coaster twice), I wasn’t sure what I had just witnessed, even though I was waiting for it the second time. Just after you crest the final hill there is ... a bump? a...
