Amtrak service all throughout the southeast, especially in Florida, is beyond terrible. This is because in the northeast the passenger trains have their own designated rails while in the south they usually travel in slow, clunky freight rails and sometimes get delayed by the freight trains themselves.

Can I park my donkey here?

For what it's worth, the delay seems to have started in the DC station. It has been around four hours late throughout the trip.

This is the first time Amtrak has let me down. When I flew out DCA-LAX, I went from the Fredericksburg station to the Alexandria station amd then it was a quick Metro trip into DCA. Much better than driving right to DCA.

Back to my trip, there's a glimmer of hope for me and my trip. it looks like my return train has encountered a delay in Mississippi. Maybe I will get 30-60 more minutes at the park.


I am still pretty hyped for the park. Honestly, more so than for Carowinds next month. Expecting Goliath and Mindbender to become my top B&M hyper and top Schwarzkopf. Expecting Georgia Scorcher and Blue Hawk to be my second place B&M stand-up and Vekoma.

Was a good night to ride tonight. Amazing weather, and only a station wait for the last hour of Cyclone. Will be back tomorrow for the final day. Already feeling pretty bittersweet.

Wow that paint is hilariously awful. And people say Nitro is bad...

How can SFOG let Scorcher look that bad? That ride looms over the front entrance.. nothing says "welcome to Six Flags" more than a dilapidated roller coaster. What's really hilarious is that the paint underneath the peeling purple looks better than what they used to cover it with now.
