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 ...

Re: 2016 - Skyhawk and Flying Eagles

I hit 51 after the number of tower rotations was reduced from 9 to 7. I didn't start flipping right away. I'm still hopeful that I might beat it at some point.

Re: CW Mobile App

I have a feeling that's exactly why they don't have the wait times posted for "outsiders". They don't want to deter people from visiting the park (and hopefully spending money) due to long wait times.

Re: University of Waterloo Roller Coaster Design Project

Wow, this is incredible! Well done. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Hopefully we'll actually see something like this come to Wonderland in the near future ;)

Re: 2017 Rollercoaster

I posted this on our Facebook page but it's appropriate to put here as well: I'm just going to toss this out there... Knott's is rumoured to be removing their boomerang coaster in the Boardwalk section of the park. They also recently removed their top spin that's next to Boomerang (it would create a...

Re: Knott's Berry Farm - Buena Park, CA

Jeff and I were at the park a little over a week ago and it looks fantastic! All the renovations and upgrades they've done over the last few years have definitely improved the park. And I have to say it... Iron Reef was INCREDIBLE. We re-rode it 4 or 5 times and loved it just as much each and every ...

Re: 2017 Rollercoaster

I would just like to point out that there are at least 3 separate rumours about 3 different areas of the park. Sounds like a few random people are literally throwing darts in the dark hoping they hit a bullseye with a prediction. To be honest, at this point I haven't heard a solid lead yet for our n...

Re: Cedar Point - Sandusky, OH

I've loved both dive coasters I've ridden (BGT & BGW) and I'm sure this will be a great ride as well. Look forward to riding it in August!

How many flips have you achieved on Skyhawk?

Be sure to let everyone on the forums know how many flips you've achieved on Skyhawk. Select an option from the poll and post your exact totals here! I've also set the poll to allow for changes so you can update your total as the season goes on. My current record is 51 flips. I can't wait to get bac...

Re: Kings Island - Mason, OH

Splash Works could definitely use a large tower complex like this! Huge capacity in a small space. These towers look great. I look forward to my next visit to King's Island. Hopefully in 2017 to ride their next ride they're already teasing ;)
