REVIEW: Splash Mountain at the Magic Kingdom | Classic or Pass?

Back in June we received the exciting news that Splash Mountain at Disneyland and the Magic Kingdom would be re-themed to the animated film Princess and the Frog. While I think this is a welcomed change to the ride, it did cause me to reflect on how much Splash Mountain matters to me. I’ve gone

Six Flags Over Texas Review: The Original Six Flags Park

When I think Six Flags, I tend to think about amusement parks with a heavy emphasis on thrills and roller coasters. This isn’t a bad thing at all, but as someone who prefers a wholesome “theme park” experience (which includes a variety of rides, delicious food, and an immersive atmosphere), I don’t expect to enjoy

Limitless Park 2019: A Year In Review

2019 is officially coming to a close, and with that I always like to reflect on everything Limitless Park has accomplished throughout the year. Since the site’s inception in 2016, the members and I are constantly looking for new ways to grow our brand. I usually keep the numbers and statistics to myself (quantifying things

REVIEW: Kings Island Halloween Haunt 2019

Arguably my favorite time to visit a theme park is during a halloween event. I’ve only been to a handful so far, but I’ve enjoyed each one that I’ve visited tremendously. Last year I attended Halloween Haunt at Kings Island for the first time and had a lot of fun, despite the high levels of

Slinky Dog Dash Review – New for 2018 Mack Multi-Launch Family Coaster

On June 30th, Disney opened their latest addition to their Hollywood Studios theme park: Toy Story Land. The area features a new queue for the dark shooter ride Toy Story Midway Mania, a spinning attraction named Alien Swirling Saucers, tons of Toy Story Meet n Greets, and a counter service restaurant known as Woody’s Toy Box. The most important addition of all, however, is the new roller coaster named Slinky Dog Dash. This new Mack Rides family launch coaster is drawing in crowds from all over Walt Disney World resort, causing wait times to reach 2 hours. In other words, unless you have a fastpass or are doing rope drop, you’re going to be waiting a while to ride this thing. Is it worth it? Well, I’ve ridden it 3 times, and I’d say it is. Here’s why:

REVIEW: Hershey Park – August 2018

My first time ever hearing about Hershey Park was on a television program named Insane Coaster Wars: World Domination.  This TV show traveled to Hershey Park to film some world-class coasters, such as Skyrush and Fahrenheit. Just a few weeks ago, I was finally able to ride both of these coasters, and experience everything Hershey

Happily Ever After Review – The Magic Kingdom’s Newest Nighttime Spectacular

Fireworks over Cinderella Castle: an image that has become synonymous with Disney Parks and the Disney company as a whole. From 2003 to 2017, Wishes: A Magical Gathering of Disney Dreams, was the nighttime fireworks show that would wow guests every night in the Magic Kingdom. I loved this show. I have many good memories of watching it, and was sad to see it go. When it was announced that Wishes would be retired, I had a very high standard for the show that would replace it. Does Happily Ever After meet this standard? Did we the fans get an upgrade or a downgrade? Here are my thoughts:

Avatar Flight of Passage Review – Best Attraction at Disney’s Animal Kingdom?

You can feel the breathe of your banshee beneath you, smell the beautiful landscape surrounding you, and hear a stampeding herd of animals below you. Avatar Flight of Passage isn’t just a theme park ride. It is a triumphant experience that reinvents the standards of what Disney attractions should be. As much as I love some of my favorite rides at WDW, I’ve been wowed by Flight of Passage, and I’m willing to put it at number one.

Mt. Olympus Theme Park Review – October 2017

Back in September, I paid a visit to Mt. Olympus Theme and Water Park in the Wisconsin Dells. Despite being a native Wisconsinite, I had never actually been to this park before. It was quite interesting to finally ride some coasters at what is, if you don’t count Six Flags Great America, my home(state) park.

Six Flags America Review – July 2017

July 9th marked my first visit to Six Flags America, a smaller theme park located in Bowie, Maryland, just 30 minutes out of Washington D.C. We only spent a few hours at the park, due to me coming down with a cold, but we were able to get on 6 of their 9 coasters. Here are my overall thoughts about the park, it’s coasters, and the overall experience you get when you visit Six Flags America.
