The admin over at GAH later sort of confirms that it's for the solar panels going up in the park, so that's rather disappointing considering we haven't even been teased this year. GAdv social media has been dead most of the year, save for the random coaster picture.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

The park's social media presence is terrible. The only time I ever see them on my Twitter timeline, it's to say that Hurricane Harbor is at capacity.
Total Coasters: 140

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

Have they turned up the settings on Cyborg to make it a fun ride yet?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Mini trip report and notes from my visit on Tuesday 7/31:

- So happy I didn’t get a flash pass. Only wait of the day was about 20 minutes for Justice League. Everything else was basically a walk on or station wait. Rode Nitro and El Toro each 3x in a row in afternoon / early eve
- Cyborg - meh. Honestly nothing to write home about.
- Joker - much better than I remember it being. Hit me with some great surprises.
- Dare Devil Dive - never had done this and now SO glad I did. The coolest / best experience in the park. As much as I love the Kingda Ka launch - the first drop on this is incredible. Well worth the money.
- Food Quality has not improved by any means in the last 5-10 years.Havent been to Macho Nacho yet which I heard was good.
- Where is your non soft serve ice cream? I recognize the partnerships with Ben & Jerry’s and Cold Stone must have expired, but wish we had a place to get real, legit, premium ice cream.
- The Golden Kingdom to Plaza Path is open again. So much win!!!!

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

Thanks! I guess it has a smaller presence than the previous ones I mentioned (or I wasn’t paying enough attention), as everywhere I looked and used to go for regular ice cream seemed to not be there anymore. Specifically thinking of the old Cold Stone locations near the main fountain and near Nitro / Batman.
