    Carowinds 2020

    Not directly asking you, but did they actually hang up lights just to test to see if they still work or was it misinterpreted from the webcam footage that these were indeed Winterfest lights? Seems very strange that someone would put up lights to see if they work when you can just plug them in...

    2020 Taste of Busch Gardens

    Excellent point, but I am grabbing the benefit dangling in front of me right now and will deal with the ramifications of my greediness on friend tickets next year.

    2020 Taste of Busch Gardens

    This is exactly why I am using them now, because I do not believe their system will properly account for them accruing/rolling over into 2021.

    2020 Taste of Busch Gardens

    It was funny when I called I explained to the guy what I wanted to do and he said "let me check the policy real quick". I was picturing him just counting to 10 and then asking me for the information needed. LOL

    2020 Taste of Busch Gardens

    So I just called Busch Gardens and you CAN use bring-a-friend tickets for the Taste of Busch Gardens event or at least I was able to and I actually received bar codes for my guests; I guess I will find out if they actually work the day of going, but it appears that calling them can make this happen.

    2020 Taste of Busch Gardens

    Will this event allow you to use bring-a-friend tickets for a grandfathered Platinum membership holder? If so, how do you go about redeeming said tickets, as I have only been able to redeem bring-a-friend tickets at the park entrance in normal operating times?

    If you have Nintendo Switch Online, then you will have plenty of older Zelda games to choose from; A Link To The Past (ALTTP) is my favorite in the franchise, which is why I like Link's Awakening so much, because it has more of an ALTTP feel to me than open-world Zelda; very few Zelda games are...

    Nice, what games are you playing or planning to play? Zelda BotW is worth a playthrough (just for the stunning environment they were able to create), even though I don't consider it high on my list of top Zelda games (lack of dungeons was a bummer for me; the shrines are too short). TBH, Link's...

    Lawsuit Claims Improperly Secured Restraints on Storm Runner

    I will be quite interested of the details, if they ever are revealed publicly, of this case. I do not see a scenario where a guest "jumps out of the train" AND the launch is not aborted. Again without details, the article seems to imply the father experienced the entire ride without assistance...

    Coronavirus Crisis

    I was wondering why you were concerned about not getting to visit the Trop this season, but then again this wonderful venue may pull double duty for a minor league team too. So I read somewhere that the owner of the Rays wants to split the "home" games between Tropicana Field and Montreal, is...

    COVID-19 Impacts to WCUSA

    In my opinion, neck gaiters will serve more practically for guests, because of the ability to continue wearing them around your neck while in line and on-ride (assuming waterparks allow that) and having them dry rather quickly instead of absorbing liquid like other mask materials might. This is...

    COVID-19 Impacts on Kings Dominion

    Correct, no one from BGW named on the list at: https://www.governor.virginia.gov/newsroom/all-releases/2020/april/headline-856312-en.html but there is the caveat on the webpage of: In addition to the task force, Governor Northam and his administration have continued to consult with numerous...

    Project 2021: Jurassic World VelociCoaster

    Wow, I had no idea of the miserably poor downtime numbers this ride has; I was only reading the critical acclaim of people who have actually ridden it and posted positive reviews. Will be curious to see how the fast-moving switchtrack on Pantheon fairs then or if that is the culprit in the woes...

    I respectfully disagree, do we agree on anything? LOL What is your favorite color?

    Project 2021: Jurassic World VelociCoaster

    I understand that Cedar Fair is not currently working with Intamin, but they may find them as an acceptable product choice again with the successes of Hagrid's Motorbike and potential success of Pantheon. Just holding out hope for a blitz-style coaster at KD, that's all. Nevertheless, happy to...
