    If we get a Eurofighter with the height and inversions of Cannibal at Lagoon Park with the hang time of Adventureland's Monster, that may be a top 10 coaster.
  2. Knotts Berry Farm

    Real quick, I forgot to post a trip report from yesterday. I rode Sol Spin three times and I really enjoyed it. I kept thinking of Hermonie saying, "Absabotry" as the chairs went up. My first ride was pretty tame, but the last two felt far more intense. The ride was pretty short as they wanted to cycle a lot of people through. Oh well. As I was in Ghostrider (Which was running great and was a walk-on for the front row!), I noticed them tearing down the facade for Trick Or Treat and gutting the interior. Being that they've kept it up all year, I think it's safe to say Trick or Treat is gone this year (FINALLYYYYYYY). They were doing the same to Voodoo when I walked by it. Voodoo and TrT are gone this year for haunt. Now back to the new coaster speculation, a traditional hyper is out, dive coaster is out (Glad to hear), no T-Rex rail....I know a Eurofighter was heavily rumored, but that is certainly lower capacity than that so....what else could it be? It's either B&M or RMC but I'm leaning towards B&M. EDIT: Longshot here, but worlds first hyper woodie? RMC style with inversions?
  3. Knotts Berry Farm

    Oh snap. That would be AMAZING. I missed this post!
  4. Knotts Berry Farm

    .....so a dive machine it is then.
  5. Knotts Berry Farm

    I don't think they'll announce the new ride until November. They don't want to discourage people from coming this year. Rumors seem to be gaining traction that the new coaster won't just be in that small area.
  6. Knotts Berry Farm

    I wouldn't mind a dive machine either, but I was hoping Six Flags would pick it up first. After all that seems to fit their clientele. I really don't want to see Knotts get it. A Eurofighter would be way better, but they should save it for Silver Bullet's replacement. That would be a better use of small space.
  7. Knotts Berry Farm

    Well, that still rules a hyper in. No...NO. You can't be serious. Please not a dive coaster. The very last thing SoCal needs is another one-trick-pony. Knotts really needs a high capacity, descent-length coaster. If it is a dive machine, the GP will eat it up though. "OMGGGGG ITS DA BIG SCAWEY DROP RIDE THAT GOES STRAIGHT DOWN AND DO THE LOOP!!!! YOLO!!!!!" I'd prefer a hyper, but a Eurofighter would be way better than a dive machine. C'mon. Ugh. Please Knotts. As much as I want a Giga, I'm willing to settle for a hyper. Is it too much to ask for a descent hyper in SoCal? Goliath blows.
  8. Knotts Berry Farm

    Hmmm...haven't heard anything on that but i could see that. The grill is finally going vertical so they will use that chunk of land for it. IF this is a hypercoaster, I could see it go over the midway, thru Xcellerator, around Supreme, and then back. I think it would be a missed opportunity if they didn't take advantage of that space.
  9. Knotts Berry Farm

    Sol Spin opened Saturday. I might take a spin on it this week. Also today is Boomerang's last day. I'm hearing conflicting runors that he replacement is either a Eurofighter or a hyper. I'm really hoping for the latter. We need an airtime filled big ride.
  10. True, but they're different kinds of Donuts. I think both will do fine. Sparky's Donuts are quick, on-the-go plain Donuts while Voodoo is more popular and fancier. Also, do either of those places have a giant Big Pink? All three will do just fine. If anything USH should be known as the donut (and simulator) capitol of the world. They each have their own flare.
  11. That makes sense. People may hold off in going or buying their APs once they hear the news. Over here it's a different demographic.
  12. I...just....don't think of Universal having a food Festival. I don't think of a Studios park having a good Festival event. What would the theme be? Harry Potter and the Great Forbidden Feast? Despicable Feast? Doc Brown's Fried Fest? Krusty's Barf and Booze Festival? I cant think of any theme that would make sense. SFMM doesn't do one either so USH isn't the only one not doing one. Technically Disneyland doesn't either.
  13. Yup. That's happened to me several times. I'm 6'0 and I've made the mistake of riding with my black boots. Whenever I have and I don't lift my legs, the ride stops. Then everyone gives me a death stare. Then I have a seared conscious for ruining the done sequence for some riders.
  14. This is such a weird way of "announcing" a maze. Heck, I would've preferred that they announce a scare zone since what they revealed was practically common knowledge. Everyone figured AHS would be back.
  15. That's....odd. Even more so when we're getting exactly what Orlando is. Why wait to announce it?
