Thread: The parrot is back, the 3rd pirate is back but the second one is missing

    The parrot is back, the 3rd pirate is back but the second one is missing

    Rainy morning but the sun came out in the afternoon. Not too crowded. We were able to get an 8am FP for Guardians, followed by 8:30 for Raideator Springs and we did Screamin twice (no wait) between the two. The FP's for most of the rides were pretty close to the time we made the reservation except the Haunted Mansion. Otherwise it was a nice day and we left around 1pm.

    The Parrot returned from vacation as well as the 3rd singing pirate but the second one has been replaced by 2 barrels.

    With Screamin going down for a few months starting January we had talked about going one day and only riding that ride, over and over. I started thinking that maybe I can get 100 consecutive rides that final weekend. I might get sick of it after 4 or 5 though. We will see.

    Sick of it or sick from it?

    I know I'd be sick after the second trip.

    Maybe not the second, but I wouldn't make it to 100 either!

    The worst I think I've ever done (where I started to feel the combined effect) was Manta at SeaWorld Orlando. I went 3 times in a row and felt it a bit after the third time and figured I should not press my luck. I might have done the same for Mako when it opened, but no loops there to make it worse.

    Only other one I think I've done a bunch of times in a row (maybe 3-4 on several occasions) was Expedition Everest with no bad effects.

    As for binki's quest of 100 rides, I'm guessing that would be a challenge in the final days. You can only get so many FP tickets, and I'm guessing demand will rise in the final days like ToT did before they transitioned it to Mission Breakout. I doubt "walk-on" will be the case for the last days.

    Wow, 3-4 trips on EE? I'm dizzy for an hour or two after one trip on EE!

    Yeah, the main "different" effect on EE doesn't seem to bother my system at all. Loops add up for me, I think (and maybe the hanging below the rail for my Manta Example). I don't think I would try multiple Rockin' Roller Coaster trips (though the single rider there is much slower than EE when they have single rider open, so "consecutive" trips on RRC would probably be spaced out by at least 1/2 hour most times, I guess, whereas I can easily do 4 trips on EE probably within an hour when single rider is open).

    Back to the Screamin' topic, I am pretty sure the loops, even though only one per ride, might get to me after a while.

    binki, sorry to invade your trip report as I notice what section this post was in.

    Yep, it was. Race weekend plus lots of people with the day off for Veteran's Day.
    Please don't ask me how I feel, I feel fine
    Oh I cry a bit, I don't sleep too good, but I'm fine


    Sometimes, "be the better person" is code for "be a doormat".
