^While it was a bust, you did get the sense that the park was heading in the right direction. Theming, and effort. It was no Disney because lets face it Six Flags won't ever be Disney but it felt like an enjoyable park to go to. Now I feel like it's just heading back down the wrong path. However that's just my opinion. -Cookie
Trying to look smart on the TPR forums since 2008.

I plan on going before the end of july with my VIP passes with or without my friend. I've been trying to get him to go before Deja Vu was even removed but whatever. I'll very likely be going july 27th or july 28th and since the VIP passes include backstage tour I can easily just write down questions people want answered. I'm already going to ask how tall the drop actually is, how fast it cand/will go, etc.

It certainly felt that way after this year's WCB. However I haven't heard many reports from the park, pro or con, so far this spring/summer. Other than the Green Lantern thing, has anyone had good or bad days there? I haven't been back since WCB.
Well, the park does have its good and bad days. Operations have been pretty good (especially on X2 and Goliath!) on everything except Tatsu and Batman. The park seems to be managed relatively well and the rides are still being maintained, but small details, such as the X2 music, seem to be losing importance to the management. It is almost starting to feel as if the park is running only to make money and it doesn't seem like the park is doing much to go "above and beyond". It seems like they are doing whatever they can do to get by, and not much more. It definitely doesn't have the "welcoming" feeling it had when Jay was Park President. He just gave the park more spirit and made it look good! I am not seeing that from Bonnie. For example, theming is becoming more minimal and not as maintained, and old signs (such as Shakes & Fries at 'What the Fried?'). As a regular park visitor, I have seen the changes in the park in these past few years.
One of my biggest disappointments in the last few years was when Riddlers was left with one train. Now, the station is full no matter what. But unlike a normal station, this station takes at least 15 min to get through when full. It's kind of a burn having one of the parks largest coasters run only one train!!!
I talked to the director and he said a few things that may, or may not be new.
- The ride will definitely run with Superman roaring up the track. - Flash Pass will work for Lex Luthor. - The ride will have a single riders line. - The cars have been dropping around 80mph in the testing phase rather than the 85mph that is being advertised. - He also reaffirmed that the actual drop is 400ft. - I asked him if he knew the specific reason why the ride was delayed and all he gave me was, "we just needed more time to test it." - For anyone that recently bought their season pass (such as myself), you should get an email at some point this week to schedule a ride time between July 9th - 13th.
Heading down to the park again tomorrow for another Lex update.
My b. Someone definitely told me that the park sent a train to Green Lantern, and now only had one train. Last few times I went, the ride was only running one train as well. My poor mistake-_____- Do you know why the park runs one train more frequently? I went on days when Riddlers would have one train going and quite a wait, while Scream was walk on with two trains.
