I wish I could understand what you were trying to say.... But I've got nothing.


The Riddler ride has been down for at least a week. As for The Joker it broke down yesterday, crew was working on it yesterday, and I was passing by today they were still working.

HQ= Harley Quinn

Riddler has been down since at least July 1st. While we were there we saw maintenance working near the top of the ride.

^ I was told by one of the park employees that the Riddler had been making some "creaking" noises while swinging back and forth. I suppose that's what the ride mechanics were working on. Riddler has been SBNO since the 4th of July.

Was at the park today for the first time in 14 years... Had a great time outside of being drenched in sweat all day.

The red, white and blue lights do indeed look great.

The thing is VERY complicated with a lot of different motors and gears that all have to work together for the ride to operate.

I was at SFGadv last week and saw the Cyborg Cyber Spin (the other copy of this ride) and it was suffering downtime as well.

There is no such thing as a donkey punch.

I was tagged in a post on FB. Joker was stuck with riders on the lift Monday. It was only a 30 sec video so not sure how long they were up there. I copied the link, let's see if I can do this right.

I would HATE to be stuck in those heavy restraints, in this 100+ heat we've been having for even a few minutes.

ok then. . we've booked hotel, so will be there Sun/Monday 8/5-8/6.

pretty much ALL of Gotham (including Mr. Freeze, which I've never been on since always closed on our visits), Skyscreamer, and New Texas Giant are all new to me.

gonna be hot and icky, but hoping since our arrival is Sunday afternoon, that the crowds will thin out as the day progresses. and the park is open until 10pm that night.

It's been clearing out around 6pm on these hot days. Which doesn't make sense to me. Semi heavy crowds during the heat of the day, then everyone leaves when it starts to get tolerable. It'll be walk on most rides. I may be out there the 6th later in the day if ya want to meet up. Its the first day of bring a friend free so was gonna take someone. Those days are usually nightmares but it's going 6th-10th and I'm hoping that first day won't be as bad.
