That is worse than any SF park I have been too. The size of that pizza was pathetic.


Six Flags over Texas has Papa John's pizza at EXTREME HIGH prices. I think that two small slices is 17 dollars and like a small pizza is 25 dollars. ::shock::

Donkeys give me orgiastic scream!

KD looks pretty normal (except for the de-Paramounting). It'll be good to go down there finally. Last time I was there was 2005 and they were working on IJST. I'm not particularly excited about it but it'll be fun nonetheless. Thanks for showing me what to expect when I go down there on Monday.

Can I park my donkey here?

Funny thing about Anaconda: I actually liked it. In fact I had no clue what people are always complaining about when it comes to big Arrows. That is until the corkscrews, at the point it blew it so hard that it ruins the whole ride. Shame too because up until that point I was actually thinking that it was something resembing smooth.

This brings back memories for me though, having been to PKD a few years back. It's quite amazing how much has already changed since I was there (in '03 I believe).

^ It wouldn't be bad at all except for that stupid pretzel section or whatever they call it. It bangs you all around. The rest of the ride is not too bad on the banging. Thanks Arrow for not knowing how to bank anything.

Nice report!

At least your Hurler trains have a name on them. Ours are just plain old blue.

But ours kicks KDs Hurler any day of the week, logo or not.

^Anaconda does have a split personality. The initial drop is great, and the first two inversions are OK. But that second half stinks. The first time I rode it, I came off all headachey and queasy. But when I last rode it in October '06, it wasn't as bad.

Still, Anaconda's hardly a classic.

Nice report. good photos !

Just a quick question for you (P)KD regulars/locals. What are the crowds like in september ? I'm booked in for a visit to BGE and (P)KD and was wondering if I'll be fighting the crowds off with a baguette or not ?
