...You come to this website a couple of times a day and the threads are not moving. I wish there was as much to talk about in the winter as we have in the summer.

You visit this site every day just because you realize there ain't a whole lot else to do in the Lehigh Valley during these incredibly long and boring winter months!

Every time I complain about Dorney, I realize just how much time I spend there, and how much I miss it in the off season! I SO wish that skiing wasn't so ridiculously overpriced, as I'd love to get back into that again, to fill the void during the "off season"!

The choices are Phoenix, Twister and Raven and it is 50 cents to use.


I think they have one of those at the South Mall too, I think it has Gemini and Blue Streak (CP). Great Wolf Lodge in the Pocono's has a beefed up version in there arcade I think it has Phoenix and Thunderbolt (KW).

Southmall also has a Hurricane Simulator, wonder if that's the same thing as the dryer booths by WWL.

If they lowered prices on some of the older stuff I might place another order. I wish they would put the Statix models on sale. I have the Talon train but would get the Hydra train if I could get it for under $20.

Not that I really need anymore stuff though, just with shirts I have 4 different Voodoo ones (65% off was too good to pass up), 1 Talon, 1 Fear The Five (Laser, Hydra, Steel Force, Thunderhawk, Talon) plus a bunch of mugs, cups, shot glasses, snow globes etc.

It's getting really bad for me now these past few days. The weather has been TOO nice for March! Dorney needs to have a spring time event, like Hershey does, to give me something to do in April a little closer to home! Springtime in the Park at Dorney anyone? (Yeah, I'd still go to Hershey, but having two places to go before May would be great)!

That would be nice to have Dorney open in April even just for a few days. At least Great Adventure opens in 2 weeks 8)

Oh wow, I did not know that regarding GA. Probably because I have not been there in quite a few years. May have to check it out again to get my early fix this year, LOL.

You look at the Simulations page and drooling over the screen to see if the site launched the beta yet or you already signed up for the beta testing to get your hands to beta test the #SF Sim :P ;)
