If anything they should just overlay what they already have, but I doubt they care. :lol:

Corkscrew is fine.

Can you see the donkey in my toast?

So even though me and my wife have season passes and live 5 minutes from the park we finally made it there for the first time this year. After visiting some really good parks this year we just havent had much ambition to go. Anyways only 2 things I really noticed is that Thunderhawk is looking super faded and that Sea Dragon was shrink wrapped. Does anyone know if it has been opened yet this year?
Best Wood Lightning Rod....Goliath SFGAM....Shivering Timbers....Storm Chaser...Voyage
Best Steel Maverick...Lighting Run.....Montu...Mako..Fury...Afterburn...Manta
Honorable mentions Kumba..Raging Bull..Legend..Cornball..M Force..Rapter..Mr Freeze

You know what....Way to many good coasters the best :lmao:

I'm not sure, I only went there for the evening on the 26th and it was really empty and everything was a walk-on because of that.

I noticed that to! I was at the park and noticed that there was a cover over the ship itself. I called up the park to ask why and they said,"Ugh maintenance I don't know when its gonna reopen." I was confused but I hope that there not gonna remove it cause it's a nice ride, but I really noticed the staffing issues. In the morning I noticed it with Hydro Blaster that it was open in the morning but they closed it when the water park opened up. After the staff member went to Trabant that had no staff member there and it was closed. Also Be Bop Blvd was only running one side when it had a 20-30 minute wait.What I didn't understand was that there was a staff member on the bridge for Adventure Falls when you could just have an announcement on the bridge and that its there fault if they don't hold on and fall when the wave comes over. I really hope the staffing issue isn't the case that we aren't getting anything major.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Last time I went to MiA, was 2015, and it's only 2 hours away! I will have had CF Platinum passes twice now without going once as well. If that's not a stinging indictment of the place from a local, I don't know what is! :lol:

Staffing issues and it's July. That doesn't sound well.

idk if it was the day I went but I wont be surprised if they remove some rides that have alot of staff and replace the ride with a less staffed ride.

Today was the first day they ran it! They were cycling it in the morning with water dummies and then had actual riders later in the day.

While nothing crazy, the Google Earth satellite has been updated. The date is now 5/15/2018. It was last done in 2015. Street view is still from 2011. I haven't been their since '16. It's interesting how they did the Funnel queue. It looks like they did more work on Thunderhawk than just the catwalk by the brakes, judging by all the stuff laying by it.
