  1. When it was brand new, we used to have scream fights were each side would try to yell the loudest when their side went up in the air. Later the scream fights became "Taste great" on one side and "Less filling" on the other side. Leave it to the alcoholic culture to only being able enjoy something if it is based around drinking.
  2. In one of those drone videos I could see the break run for The Beast behind Orion's turn around. I hope Orion doesn't take away that 'ride through the woods' aspect of The Beast. It's like the park is slowly encroaching on The Beast. I guess it is bound to happen eventually but that should be a treat for future generations to witness. Today, I want to keep riding through the woods.
  3. That turn around looks like it is really going to be something crazy. That height, the curve at the top and the steep drop back down. I cant wait to have a heart attack while riding this thing. I will become an urban legend as employees claim to have seen my ghost.
  4. Smoky Mountains National Park is set to close stating on March 24 and will remain close at least until April 6. This includes roads inside the park as well as hiking trails. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is set to close for at least two weeks.  Read More: Great Smoky Mountains National Park Set to Close | https://wbkr.com/great-smoky-mountains-national-park-set-to-close/?utm_source=tsmclip&utm_medium=referral
  5. I'm kind of glad that Kings Island got postponed because I don't have the money for a season pass right now. They started trying a new cure/ treatment in New York today. Trump says he wants the country running like normal again by Easter, but I don't know about that. All it takes is one infected person and we'll all be back to this in four months for round 2.
  6. Disney is taking such a beating with closures of all the parks, movie productions put on hold and canceled theatrical releases because of the coronavirus that its stocks have dropped to an all time low. Now Apple is thinking about making a take over offer. Apple Could Look to Acquire Disney Amid Stock Drop, Analyst Says
  7. Lego Land will reopen this week. I'm sure the entire amusement industry will be watching the re-opening of Legoland, Japan and the Merlin’s Sea Life aquarium in Nagoya Japan to see how this goes.
  8. Walt Disney's great niece calls out Disney World visitors during coronavirus Walt Disney'great niece, Abigail Disney, can't believe how busy Disney World, park was on it's last day open and isn't afraid to call the out the park's visitors. in a tweet, from Disney" World News," It showed massive attendance at Disney World in it's final performance of the the night of the show "Happily Ever After." When Abigail got wind of the massive crowd, she ethered the guests collective irresponsibility with "are you effen kidding me?" I was so tired when I posted the original message that I couldn't even read it. I THINK its fixed now. Sorry if it was full of errors and didn't make much since. I was falling asleep there.
  9. I never realized that the last tunnel covering the lift hill was so long. Seems like only a forth of that when your zoming into it on the train.
  10. I'm going to see the original King Kong, playing at the cinema today only. Also, I need to go out and buy a water heater. We haven't had hot water in almost 4 weeks. It's like taking the ice bucket challenge when you shower. I must boil a pot of water and poor it into the sink to wash the dishes and I might have to go to a laundry mat to wash some clothes. Everything is coming up dead roses for me.
  11. Dollywood opened today for season pass day but then decided to close for two weeks.
  12. I love the closeness and angle of Diamondback.
  13. 16,000 Americans have died from flu this year, only 2,810 people have died from the coronavirus virus WORLD WIDE. Most people who are effected with coronavirus usually get better, although they may be wishing they are dead when it reaches it's worse point. The ones who generally die have either diabetes, heart disease, late stage cancer, are elderly, have lung disease and anyone else who might have some kind of medical condition that could compromise their immune system... like cirrhosis of the liver as another example. If you feel flu like symptoms coming on, get to a hospital pronto, do not try to ride it out because it could be coronavirus and not the flu... although you should go see a doctor even it turns out to be the flu, because you are more likely to die from that than coronavirus. I gathered this info from reputable medical and science sites, not Fox, NBC or any news sites exaggerating headlines to create ratings and clicks.
  14. To promote their 150th season this year, Cedar Point will be returning to it's roots. Just like the parks of yesterday, it will be free to get in and roam around, but if you want to enjoy one of the open attractions you have to purchase a ticket for that attraction. Think of the E-Ticket system that used to be at Disney or any carnival or fair today. If you want to ride everything and see all the shows, you can buy an "all day" wristband for $20.20. Otherwise it might cost you like $4.00 for one ride on Valravn or $3.00 for one ride on Wicked Twister. I'm just giving an example here, they haven't said how much each ride and show will cost as of yet. It will only be for two of the midways, the main midway and the lakeside midway, so no western town. This event will happen on May 2nd and 3rd. It would be something neat to do if you just want to go, walk around and reminiscent about going as a teenager, but not as much if you want to ride stuff all day, although $20.20 is a pretty good price to be able to do that on the rides that will be open. Valravn and Gate Keeper are going to be the two most popular. Reservations to do this must be done in advance. Just for Fun Weekend featuring free admission
