Actually, Mine Ride is open again this year. Last year they added a Mystic Timbers-like theme of #WhatsInTheShed (and what an incredible surprise that was :lmao: ). It's listed on the Friday Night Rides page, but the Mystic theme is not mentioned. The Blue Streak apparently has a Halloween theme this year according to the website, as does the Sky Ride... hmmm..... ;)

Oh, I totally missed Mine Ride but you're right.

And yeah, Sky Ride was supposed to have a theme last year too but it basically just stayed closed for staffing for the majority of the event. Personally I think riding with a scare actor would be super awkward after the first few seconds where I guess it would initially be sort of cool. You won't stay scared for the whole ride, so what do you do... sit there and talk about the weather? Do they break character and talk about their insane hours and the rampant under-staffing? :lol:

Perhaps discuss the brilliant genius of Von Roll Conveyances across the globe? Or share a laugh about how incredibly awful the Darien Lake thread is on TPR? :b

What's the best way to balance coasters, scare zones, and mazes? Are there better times to focus on each of them? Thanks for any pointers...


Interested to hear how the crowds are this weekend, I'm going next Saturday (might add Friday not sure yet) with early entry. Still planning on getting FastLane for rides but if the houses have reasonable waits I wouldn't mind checking some of them out.

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

So, I've done every haunt tonight and it's really been disappointing. I get that they're short staffed but the actors they have just don't care. A lot were just sitting/standing around waiting for their shift to end. Hopefully it's just an opening weekend thing and they'll get it up to par soon.

Otherwise though it's been a great night here. Only ride with any line to speak of was SV which was about an hour. Everything else a walk on.

From the webcam... I’d kill to ride Dragster or Millennium in this.
