    Coronavirus Crisis

    Most American households cannot withstand an unplanned, 400 dollar bill. But yeah, I guess everyone should all pull themselves up by their bootstraps and recycle aluminum cans in their "spare" time to sock away a little cash for the unknowable megavirus coming in the future. Makes sense.

    When is it time to retire a ride?

    I was thinking about this on the way in to work today because it seems like within the last year or two, maybe more, we've seen an uptick in ancient or classic rides being sent to Amusement Heaven (where Coaster Jesus lives). The debate in the Volcano thread alone is interesting albeit dizzying...

    Once upon a time, in a land not far away, there was a desperate dad who was perplexed by how few local family attractions he could take his family to. So he bought 20 acres of rolling hillside just south of Salem, Oregon, and over the next seven years built a peculiar theme park straight from...

    Trip Reports

    Hot damn, I don't even know how to start this report. A man wise beyond his years (b.mac) once told me, never review your home park. Those are good words to live by I've come to realize because I'm finding it hard to put last week's trip into words - and keep in mind this is me we're talking...

    The Park Has No IP

    Last week, it was made (sort of) clear something a lot of us could have predicted after 2011: This is Oktoberfest is getting the axe. And like clockwork, the forums went into a deathspin of vitriol and hate. I even contributed to the dissent because, despite my loathing of most shows, I actually...

    Name Something Overrated. Name Something Underrated.

    The name of the game is in the title. Sick of something being over-loved or over-looked? Now's your chance to have your voice heard! Also, be prepared to defend your stance! I'll start: Overrated Girls (TV show). I don't care what anyone thinks: this show is not just bad - it's boring...

    Park Review/Trip Report 4/27/14

    Greetings ParkFans! So, as I stated in other threads, 2014 will be a non-BGW year for me. I'm taking a break and I've decided to see other parks (and apparently BGW has a thing now with Premier Rides). Yesterday, I decided to venture up to Hershey, PA from my DC-area home to take in the...

    Other Parks, Mid-Atlantic

    I don't know where else to put this thread, so I'm hoping "Everything Else" is a decent place to park this topic. I'm curious what other parks are noteworthy in the Mid-Atlantic region from the point of view of Busch Garden fans. We all like Busch Gardens for various reasons: themes...
