If that really peaks your interest, perhaps you should check out the SF park maps. You could have a hay day with those!

It has been a couple of years since we bought Platinum Passes but we're thinking of splurging and buying them this year. Anyone know if you buy them at the park, are they the same price as online ($204 for an adult)? I know that there is an early bird, cheaper ticket offer online in the fall, but we obviously missed the boat on that.


I've been renewing mine online for years, but I don't think it makes any difference whether buy it online or in person. I'd still buy them online to speed things up at bit when you get to the park; fortunately, KD does a pretty good job at processing passes quickly.

Be sure to check out the food booths at the Spring Bloom Festival. Not exactly Epcot or Busch Gardens, but they had some good offerings last year.

^ Thanks Chuck!

We just pulled into the Best Western across the street and it looks like the parking lot is pretty packed. We may just process our passes, check out the food and beer & hit the coasters tomorrow when it should hopefully be less crowded.

^^What's his position at the park? If it is anything below Area Manager there is a 0% chance he knows anything.

I think a new coaster for 2017 would make sense, but I'm skeptical if your friend actually knows if there's a new coaster or not
Top 3 Parks: Knoebels, Dollywood, Cedar Point
Top 3 Steel Coasters: Steel Vengeance, Phantom's Revenge, Skyrush
Top 3 Wood Coasters: Voyage, Lightning Rod, El Toro
Top 3 Flat Rides: Knoebels Flyers, Zipper, It
182 coasters

2 + 2 = donkey!

LOL at "confirmed." This kind of stuff happens every year, and every year we're disappointed. Literally nothing points to a coaster for KD in 2017, so let's all lower our expectations before they are forcefully lowered by the lack of a new coaster next year.

Excuse me if i'm sceptical about where your friends are from, from the USJ thread:

Please, do not misrepresent where photos that you post came from and give proper credit in the future.


My friend is a member of Screamscape...


That's funny, because I am the one who took the pics and I don't know you.

Here is the rest of the gallery from the trip.
