Queue times is saying Batwing is operational. Can anybody confirm that it has reopened since being closed for a while?


CoasterQueue shows it as closed. Not sure how accurate that is, but it claims to have been updated today at 12:10 pm.
"Next, we are going to solicit the children of strangers so that we can go on a ride designed for children. This is so I can post online and impress other people who are very good at procuring unfamiliar children in order to go on rides designed for children, and thus have a higher arbitrary number than me."

It's now posting a wait time. It appears to be correct.

If I recall correctly, Coaster Queue seems to update less frequently (I want to say every 20 minutes).

Did you get to ride it? I know that I'm late, but the SF app says it's open.

My money is on that being an advertisement. :lol:
In my opinion El Toro and Intimidator 305 ride fairly and are free of material roughness.

It's not from their social media. It was something found in park.

Edit: Another Tombstone was supposedly added today. No photographic evidence but if I had to guess it was probably for Two-Face.

Previous post (by the park) indicated a Firebird name/theme. Current addition of tombstones in the park seems to suggest a ride may be leaving... Firebird can represent the 1960s car or maybe even the mythical phoenix... but the fire bird is also a prominent figure in Mardi Gras culture... I know no one "likes" this idea, but what if the clues are point to RMC Wild One to be renamed "Fire Bird"? I mean, they've done significantly less repair work on Wild One as they did on ROAR and the ride has been dying for a paint job (which id didn't even get for it's 100th anniversary)... you can't argue that if they did RMC Wild One (as tragic as that would be), the new ride would likely be the best coaster in the park...
