    Firehawk closing after this season

    Still think they should fill the space with flat rides....but not likely.

    Major attraction leaving after this year.

    Not shedding any tears over this one.
  3. Good one, Mr. Roberts. Needed a laugh to start my day.

    Do not understand how anyone could think those two rides are alike. One stays on its base, the other spins in the air. No comparison to me. This is an amazing video, Mr. Roberts. It sure seems like at one point that you're going to launch right out into space. Dizzying to watch in the early am.

    Hmm. Did not even think about a giga coaster. Still think they need more flat rides. They do need something back in that area though. It always feels out of place somehow, disconnected. And you're right, Mr. Roberts. The line for whatever will leave will be very long.

    I heard about the display, Mr. Roberts. All good guesses. I'm thinking Adventure or Firehawk as well. But any of these are viable options. Just wondering what they have in mind for replacement.
  7. Oh ho, there's your Zipper, Mr. Roberts.
  8. Didn't hear about that, Mr. Roberts. I know you liked that ride.
  9. This seems like a good choice. Not at all surprised they chose another company after the accident last year, from which a second young person has now passed away, sadly.

    Kings Mills Antique Autos: Coming to Coney Mall in 2019!

    Wonder if it will be finished before winter sets in. Looks like they're making good progress.

    Oh, very nice, Mr. Roberts. Thanks for posting. Hard to believe it's been gone since 1993. Doesn't seem that long.

    Not sure but think we talked about the pins before, Mr. Roberts. I believe we have a bunch somewhere but don't recall specifics. No, I would not pay that much for one either, but glad you got the Safari one. I might try to check in with a few friends and see if they managed to get one or two, though for sure have no need for more stuff. Thanks for letting me know about this.

    No, they won't fix what isn't broken, Mr. Roberts. Saw today they received the award for best children's area in the world again. It is nice. I think they could use more flat rides for people who don't like coasters or who aren't able to ride them. Personally I still miss the animals and monorail.

    I agree, Mr. Roberts. We really enjoyed it.

    Not disappointed to see peach basket gone. Nearly impossible to win on that thing. Looks like things are moving fast. Good to have the old cars back.

    I knew as soon as I heard something old is new again on the news the day before the announcement that it was the antique cars. They should never have taken them out.

    michigan Great Adventure.

    That's wonderful, Mr. Roberts. So glad you feel well enough to make a trip. Hope you have a safe and fun trip. I'll have to look it up and see what they have that is different.

    Have you ever been on son of beast?

    SOB blew down in a wind storm during construction. They rebuilt and finished it; a mistake in my opinion. It had a lot of problems and was finally torn down, long overdue.

    Halloween Troll vs Christmas Elf

    Ha. Funny, Mr. Roberts. Had trouble getting these to play for some reason, just got bits and pieces. But whoever thought putting a striped red shirt on an ugly troll would turn it into an elf made an error in judgment. It's still an ugly troll with a red shirt. Let's hope they do not repeat this mistake.

    Santa's Toy Factory, 2005

    I had completely forgotten we had to choose dates. Do remember we went twice. Guess we got lucky and had decent weather once that I recall and once quite cold. Definitely no way to get people in. Who wants to be there in miserable weather? It just seemed very expensive at the time. If we could have used our passes we would have gone more, I'm sure. You are probably right on your reasoning, Mr. Roberts. Makes sense to me.

    Santa's Toy Factory, 2005

    This is a pretty clear video for its age, Mr. Roberts. You know I never actually heard why they only did it one year; must have been the low attendance and expensive costs. It was quite nice in some ways.

    Santa's Christmas Wish 1992

    This is great, Mr. Roberts. We only went to this winterfest twice; it was so expensive. Mostly we walked around looking at lights, bought some holiday gifts, and ate. I don't think we watched any shows; don't actually remember. That seems longer ago than it was. There was a place on International street that had the best soups and chili. We hit that up both times. Don't forget food very often. Most shows we've seen I just see and don't keep room in the old brain to retain them. Too much other stuff up there. Concerts, however, I can recall back to the first one I saw over fifty years ago as a teenager.

    Santa's Toy Factory, 1991

    As well done as these shows were, Mr. Roberts, what I find most interesting is the difference in video quality. Like when I watch old M.A.S.H. shows. The difference in technology is vast. Kind of like comparing old photos from original color to today's pics. As I recall, the original fest had the best Santa we'd ever seen. I'm sure not the same each year or even every night, but we seemed to catch the same one every time we went one particular year, early eighties. I swear the guy could almost make adults believe. I'm talking about the one that was in the Santa house for kids to visit. These videos are so fun to watch. Thank you.

    Santa's Christmas Wish 1992

    Wow, how did you track this down, Mr. Roberts? Thanks so much for posting. I still don't remember but think probably we just didn't watch any of the shows. I'll go over this a couple times and see if shakes anything loose in the memory bank.
