Day 4: "I have found the queue for Dragon Mountain. It's really dark in here. Did I go to the right place, is this park even still open? I haven't seen anyone for days."


When I rode Dragon Mountain, I thought the lights were out due to a power outage or something. But nope that's just the norm in that queue line. Imagine having to wait through a long wait on that ride in complete darkness.

don't forget the question if there's a water fountain on the massive hike up the mountain for the drop tower.


The rest of my family gave up when they saw that hill and got pissed when they saw employee's zipping past us on golf carts. :lol:

The local news station just did a story about Marineland. In the story, they highlight a new bear cub that was born at Marineland and they also show off the new penguin enclosure. According to the park, the new enclosure cost three million dollars. From the look of the video clips, the enclosure takes the place of a previously unoccupied area of the Aquarium Dome. That is a great move by the park. Many people (including myself) always forget that the Aquarium Dome exists. I think it would be great if they reopen that café that is within that building now that it is bound to see more foot traffic.

Another thing to mention is that they say that it takes two million dollars a month to care for all the animals at Marineland, and as of right now, they haven't laid off any of their workers.

Amusement Insiders seems pretty convinced that the thrill ride that Marineland is planning to add for 2020 will be a Zierer Star Shape. I don't know who their source is, but it does make sense that this could be the thrill ride they are planning to debut. Half of the rides in the park are from Zierer. It would be incredible if this was their new ride!

If Marineland ever does add a new coaster in the future (which I think there is going to be a new one in the next five years), then I think there's a good chance that it will be a Tower Coaster form Zierer.

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

Amusement Insiders have a history of reliable rumors. If accurate, this seems like a great addition for Marineland. It's a spectacle to watch--just like the topple towers--but WAY more fun!

Discussion threads get created when there are multiple news stories about the park that the people of TPR respond to. I highly recommend starting a new thread with Marineland in the title. Once I see real discussion out there a Discussion Thread is created. I'm talking about real news. If people start threads about a new lemonade stand, a bathroom being refurbished or a new cleaning service being hired, then I'm unlikely to create a Discussion Thread.

Sounds good! Assuming the park does announce their two new rides for 2020, I think that would be the perfect news to start a thread! They didn’t announce Polar Splash until June so I hope they still plan on announcing the two new rides.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

^ I rode the one at Blackpool Pleasure Beach and it looks worse than it is, the ride experience was mostly pretty tame with the seat only completely flipping once or twice, a lot less intense than a Top Scan ride for sure.

Hopefully this will operate longer than their Topple Tower did.

And hopefully people will be able to find it within the park as I am sure that there won't be another ride located within a half mile of it. :lol:

The one at Blackpool was a particularly bad example (it ran very slowly), but despite this I still agree with Garet that they are not as bad as they look. I'm not a huge spin ride fan, but I do love the Star Shape and it's a shame there are not more of them.
