I really would just rent a car. At the airport and not in a sketchy area of the city.

^You can make yourself feel better by pretending that your whining influenced the park's decision. Come on, all the good enthusiasts think that way. :lol:

It's so true though. . .
Bigger is not always better.

Park was awesome today. So glad they opened. I love love love HITP. Decent sized crowd but as usual no waits for anything except Justice League, but that line moves. Riding Nitro and Batman with snow on the ground underneath, especially Nitro after dark, was incredible, and a highlight of all of my park trips and coaster rides over the years. Report forthcoming (after I eventually finish Florida).

Riding coasters with snow on the ground must be so incredibly cold!

Yesterday was actually a really nice day. I think it got into the 40's and I don't think it got below the mid 30's by park close. Even Dollywood would have run their coasters yesterday. It was a HITP heatwave. :lol:

It was surreal going up Nitro's lift looking out over the frozen lake and looking at all the snow on the ground (and track spine in certain sections).
