^^^^^ Thanks! Yeah, I think we are leaning more towards Monday now. I can't wait to try out STR and even Maverick, since I haven't been there in the past few years.

We might also try to hit up Kennywood, as it's also only two hours away. :)

Ya know, I just realized that CP has its own mini-water park inside the park. Isn't the area between the two (now three) water rides an area where you don't need a shirt or shoes? if so, will this continue with STR? I forgot where the sign was saying you had to put your attire back on
Coaster Count: 200 Wood:35 Steel: 165

Favorite Steel: Maverick (CP)
Favorite Wood: El Toro (SFGAdv.)

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^^^
It's actually more like 3 hours with no traffic or construction.

I can't wait to check out kennywood this year with the new coaster and all.

I grabbed a bunch of frames from the webcam over the past few days, then reordered them to get a few linear sequences and stitched it together in a short video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQ3mkBXrYIU

It looks pretty cool and was fun to make. I didn't pay much attention to the color of the train cars, so you can see them alternate from red to green and back...

I wrote the book about donkeys!

That's pretty cool. I saw something like that with Prowler at WoF.


I can't wait to ride STR. I also can't wait to be back at home in dry clothes after STR.

^Only the lift hill is on tracks. But the rest of the ride runs down a canal.

I don't know the difference between waist and waste.

I noticed that when I was riding STR. I have absolutely no idea what that is, and it's only in a few places during the ride. I can tell you that the boat is not connected to whatever it is.

Looks like a cool ride. Everyone that's ridden it says it's great but from the POV it doesn't look that much better than WWL. I guess I need to ride it and see.
