Nice TR, thanks for posting that. It looks like a really nice park. Is the new ride like this one?

No. It's a Calypso style ride, the cars don't rotate freely. Here's a similar ride at Cedar Point...

From w hat I heard this was slow compared to others but it was still FUN!


Yeah they're Calypso is probably going to run slower than others that are out there. They literally had no manual on how to run that ride and had to figure it out on their own. They said on their podcast that they brought some of their staff down there to ride it until they found a speed that they thought would be comfortable for everyone. I'm sure if they get enough feedback asking them to make it faster, they'll speed it up.

On May 19th and 20th i attended my first ever Coasterstock! Let me just start by saying that if other events where well planned out and have the same type of tours/ERT and everything as Coasterstock, i would love to go to many more! This event was the best I've ever been to (I've only been to Chill-Out and Keys To The Kingdom).

Friday, first day of coasterstock we where given ERT on everything in Action Zone (minus Congo) and after many laps on Banshee it turned out to be a great morning! After that i wandered the park until meeting back up for lunch with special guest speakers Logan Joiner and Jeff Joiner from KoasterKids (really inspiring story from Logan and always great to hangout with them) and as well as Lance Heal (director of entertainment). Lance talked about Winterfest and Haunt very heavily. From what I heard that was for Haunt, one maze will be retired and two new attractions will be introduced this year. They are working on new skeleton key rooms and back story's for all the mazes. So far one of many huge crates featuring animatronics and props to be installed into existing mazes to get some new love. Some new things in Slaughterhouse are that the hallway with new wood will be filled with props and scenery. Finished with winterfest information and then went to our lights on tours. Unfortunately the Diamondback tour was postponed due to weather but ERT that night still occured!

Day 1 for Coasterstock looks to be a great one!

First ride of the day is possibly one of the best arrow's in the park!

That does it for Day 1!


Onto Day 2! ERT was given in Coney Mall and FOF was giving lights on rides every other train! BOO YEAH! I finally got a lights on ride and it's interesting to see the whole ride in the building! after that we ventured to ERT for Mystic and Dback. At 2 we got our Beast tour in and our Diamondback tour in at 5! After that we ended up going to Dinner where Don, Mike Kuntz and Jeff Pike (Designer from Skyline Attractions) talked about the park, their history and Mystic Timbers. I will say i was wondering why Mystic's brake run is slanted and according to Jeff, since Mystic uses mag brakes, the train alligns perfectly with the brakes when it comes up and thus the brake run is slanted. Also to note that the s-turns weren't originally planned BUT WHO CARES IT STILL A GREAT RIDE! Unfortunately after dinner and a couple ride on Banshee/ Bat, i headed home and did not stay for ERT.

Nice report! It makes me even more excited to finally get back to the park this July. I can't wait for Mystic Timbers, as well as the two B&Ms, Beast, FIrehawk, Bat, Delirium, Drop Tower, and all of their other awesome rides.

I'm back!!!!!!! with a fresh new TR from CP! Boy the day could not have been anymore perfect! 67 degrees and a slight breeze made for no long lines and a ride on every coaster!!!

My thoughts on some coasters since I've last rode them:
-Dragster, Maverick and Millie are still fun and great rides in the front! (no bugs where killed by me which is surprising)
-Rougarou is an underrated ride imo
-Magnum continues to kill thighs but still gives a great ride and really does not show its age
-Valravn is still a one trick pony but I will try to ride it every time i'm up at the park.

Just to show how good of a day it was, by 1:30 we had rode Millie, Maverick, Dragster, Magnum and Gemini all in the front row as well as getting rides on Woodstock Express (new credit), Pipe Scream (new credit as well) and Corckscrew. I would like to point out that Firecracker at HW was my first Calypso but i LOVE Tiki Twirl better.

On a side note, despite two train ops on some of the major casters, I would like to say that Chickie Pete's is a fun place to eat and the food is great! I was thinking it would have like the Reds Hall Of Fame type of vibe but i was pleasantly surprised, and the Chicken Tenders where nice and delicious!

Mean Streak (or whatever you wanna all it according to some people on Youtube that check out my videos) continues to grow and it was the first time I've seen it since Chill Out. Boy oh boy if this doesn't become the best ride at CP idk what else is!

Enjoy the pictures and videos!

Nice pics -- brings back some great memories from a week ago for me :)

Glad Thurs had such light crowds for you. Surprised you didn't stick around for Coastermania! on Friday, as that also had pretty light crowds -- and we got evening ERT on Wilderness Run. . the hardest credit to get at CP for an adult :p


(and no, I don't care if they count it as a coaster - even on the Coastermania! shirts (really), Pipe Scream is *not* a coaster, and I did not ride it).

Recently I visited Kentucky Kingdom for Koaster Kids Day! It was a great event and we got some nice ERT on Storm Chaser in the morning and Lightning Run in the evening both for about an hour! Also at lunch Ed Hart came out and spoke to the group and was kind enough to answer some questions. Here are some of the answers:
- A Question was asked about the future 2018/2019 announcements and he said that they are still looking at when they have the best customers/out of state visitors etc. in the park. when that time is, they could announce what they are doing (which honestly is like last of June to early July or late July)
-Mr. Hart had stated that T3 is about to run with two trains, they are working on getting both trains up and running, and are slated to begin two train operations this weekend!

I would like to say that Storm Chaser is really broken in this year! I don;t remember it being so intense and hurtful (in a fun and enjoyable way) last year! as far as Thunder Run is concerned, I thought the ride was running better last year than it was this year, but maybe that's just me.

Anyways here's a couple video's and some pictures for you! This weekend I will be visiting Carowinds and Kings Dominion for the first time so stay tuned for vlogs, footage and pictures on CoasterMatt Productions socials! (follow on twitter, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube!)
