SDC had the good sense to remove the Waterboggan before things got worse.

I loved the ride, but it was rough, and lots of people got bounced around in ways they shouldn't have.

It’s crazy busy today....Thursday of spring break.  2.5 hr wait on TT.  The wait times on the app are not even close to being right.  0 time listed on FM but the line is out to the train station.

Sounds like they need a Waze version of the park apps, with real-time updates by users.

Tyler Miles was booked in the Wyandotte County Jail Friday and charged with involuntary manslaughter in connection with the death of 10-year-old Caleb Schwab.

Still dog friendly?

I'm trying to plan how to spend my Powerball money. While I could afford a lot more, I'd rather spend it with people who welcome dogs.  ;D

Did anyone have issues with the size/height/weight restrictions that some folks worried about?

Off topic to the subject of your post, but you mentioned Cedar Point. I just saw a virtual video of their new RMC-built coaster, "Steel Vengeance". It looks like RMC is continuing to build off of Outlaw Run

It's funny that Dollywood is the exact opposite corner of TN from Memphis. ;)

I always wanted to go to Graceland, but every time I got beat up by I-40 from LR to Memphis, and then navigated the constant construction zone that is Memphis itself, I quickly talked myself out of stopping by for a tour.

Wow....the whole amusement park industry had already been copying SDCs Christmas success and SDC just raises the bar again.


Amusement parks aren't the same as theme parks, of course. :)

When it comes to Christmas-themed theme parks, there's Santa's Village, operating since 1953.

I like SMF, but I'm kind of old-fashioned about forums. I do not like vBulletin, especially from an admin's perspective. I also don't care much for it from a user's perspective, especially if the owner sets up too much bling.

I don't know which way you'll go, but thank you for this place. It's nice to have something that is archived, instead of forgotten in 30 seconds like FB groups.

So we finally got to ride this thing this past Friday.  It is possibly one of the best mountain coasters I've ridden.

Nice. Attitash has both the modern tube rail coasters, and the traditional chute slides.

Wish I was in Branson today; I'd give anything to be back in 30+ degree weather... It's -1 degrees where I live currently.

Our high/low forecasts for Sunday and Monday: -2/-20, 0/-24. I went to work at noon on Friday under bright blue skies; it was -6. We did get up to the forecast high of -3, though.

And Merry Christmas to you and yours!

We thought our oldest son and his wife would be coming from Fort Drum, but their travel day was Friday, right as the weather hit. They get lake effect snow there, so they drove for three hours and only made it 60 miles before turning back. They didn't even get as far as Vermont, which would have been worse, so as much as we'll miss having them, we are glad that they didn't risk it.

Tomorrow is Baby Girl's 28th birthday, and she and her fiancé will be with us. We're not exchanging gifts among the grownups, so our youngest (15) has the whole pile. LOL

I am not far from Harrison and have many attachments there.  Harrison is not the hotbed of racism they have been saddled with.

I have friends from Harrison and Newton County, and I agree: just like my all-white home county (Polk), most of the racists moved there because it's almost all white, and weren't born there.

But there's still the connection, and when this snake-oil salesman moves in promoting "heritage", it's pretty clear who he's hoping to attract.

You would not want to pay the surge fee at peak times -- like the 2-3 hour waits reported for this week.

It's funny that a park that is 100% Christmas-themed came in at number 5. On the other hand, it is tiny compared to the others. It's also just 8 miles from my house.  :)

Yes, all the rides are for the little ones. It's a huge regional draw, considering they only have about four acres of parking.

Speaking of which, it's time for a re-telling of the greatest Christmas story of redemption: Mick Foley, AKA "Mankind" the wrestler.

Take their suggestion: don't read the article, just click the audio, close your eyes, and listen. When you're done, you can go back and read the article and browse the photos if you'd like.

Life is good in northern New Hampshire.  :D
