I take it you've never waited in line during the busy time for CDR. You can sometimes wait for up to an hour to get seated. Back in the day they actually a queue set up outside and people stood and waited. Now with these cool light up beeper things people can go walk the shops. But even still, once seated, it can easily take a couple hours by the time you're finished. A lot of people sit back and relax and talk. I for one rarely ever spend less two hours at any sit down restaurant when not dining alone. And of course the bigger your party, the longer it takes.

I have never seen a line since they’ve remodeled the place. And there’s bar seating now too.

If you are sitting in a restaurant for 2-3 hours you either had the slowest service imaginable or are eating your food in rabbit like portions one tiny bite at a time. You better be continuing to order stuff if you’re sitting around that long.

Educational tours will still visit independence hall and keep it a profitable part of the property.

It looks as though the cobra roll was finished last night on hangtime, leaving only the first inversion left to complete. My guess is vertical construction will be completed by the end of the week. A mid March opening could be a real possibility at this point!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I came over to post the same thing. Only about 3-4 pieces of track left to go! Here’s a screenshot for anyone interested.

My point remains. Trying to circumvent the system and save on parking won't work, because anything over an hour and you'll still have to pay $18 one way or another.

So it's like almost every other shopping center that charges for parking?

What shopping center charges for parking? Especially in SoCal? Maybe in downtown LA. But most shopping centers have free parking. That's kind of the point.

^The Grove, Americana, Gardenwalk, Paseo Colorado (in Pasadena). Just off the top of my head. Citywalk and Downtown Disney, depending on how you want to define "Shopping Center". But since we're talking about Knott's Marketplace, those are fair comparisons.

^ Man, I am so glad we've got what we've got here,
i.e. free parking everywhere there's a shopping mall.

Except downtown malls. Forget that, I mean duh. Easy money.

Holy cow! I don't even like downtown parking meters. I would never, ever pay to shop. How does the public tolerate it? How does that even make sense?
