Re: Muskoka Plunge and Soaring Timbers

I'm not sure what to really say about Soaring Timbers. It's uncomfortable (huge restraints that offer little to no arm room) and the experience itself is quite underwhelming. I had heard this ride was quite intense during its years on the travelling fair circuit in Europe but that has not translated...

Re: Kings Island - Mason, OH

GCI woodie is my best guess. It will be a great addition in that forested setting.

Re: Gay Day at Wonderland cancelled after no-hugging inciden

This isolated incident is being blown WAY out of proportion. This organization definitely does NOT speak for me or most (if not all) of my gay friends. I've been going to Canada's Wonderland since I was a child. I also worked there for a season many years ago. I have NEVER felt uncomfortable at the ...

Re: Cedar Point - Sandusky, OH

If you have a Platinum Pass, there are great discounts available at Breakers Express. We're staying there the second last week of August and I believe the price ranges from $80-something to $90-something per night US.

Re: Cedar Point - Sandusky, OH

It's been a few years since I've been to Halloweekends however, this is how we found crowds in the past: Friday evening will be very quiet (most large attractions/coasters should be open - limited staffing can cause smaller attractions to not open). Saturday will be VERY busy (everything should be o...

Re: Brew and BBQ Fest Trip Report Jun 25th, 2016

I really enjoyed sampling the beer. 2 tokens ($2) per 5oz sample was a good price. There was a great energy to the event on Sunday when we were there. I do agree the food should either be cash or an even 10 tokens ($10). If you have to purchase in 10 token increments and don't want to drink beer/cid...

Re: Action Theatre Future???

Jeff and I were VERY impressed with the Mass Effect makeover at California's Great America. The entire theatre was overhauled. Brand new seats and the graphics were incredible. The "live actor" was a great touch as well. No seat belts so loading/cycling was very fast. I believe we figured ...

Re: 2016 - Skyhawk and Flying Eagles

It's almost impossible to "snap" on these new models of flying scooters. Jeff and I tried here, Knott's and Cedar Point and weren't able to do it. If you ride the "original" ones (Knoebels & Carowinds), you can definitely get a wild ride and make the gondolas "snap"...

Re: Thunder Run Testing New Virtual Reality System

Currently, the VR experience is only available for season/platinum pass holders. It is still free. You "check-in" at the booth to the right of the main entrance to the ride. They will scan your pass, have you sign a waiver form (same as last year's) and they will give you a receipt. You th...

Re: How many flips have you achieved on Skyhawk?

Apparently the key to a REALLY quick flipping ride is high wind. Winds were gusting up to 60km yesterday and a first-time rider I was with managed 43 flips (again, on his first ride)!

Re: CW Mobile App

I'm not sure of the exact reasoning but it seems to be a chain-wide decision. All the parks that have upgraded to this version of the new app have the same limitations. I'll try and find a more concrete answer to this question next time I'm at the park.

Re: Cedar Point - Sandusky, OH

I look forward to skipping those long lines with Fast Lane Plus ;) On a 2017 rumour note, Screamscape is suggesting that Mean Streak will finally receive an RMC makeover for the 2017 season! If given a large enough budget, I can only imagine what kind of transformation they can make if they keep it ...
