One or two pops, nothing noteworthy.

That's too bad. It looked like a family coaster but was hopeful after riding the one in Georgia.

Does anyone care to know whether or not Gale Force has been open in the past few days? I went there this morning and they sent 4 test cycles before closing it.
Peek a boo!

I can dream that they fix that shaky launch area during the time it's closed.

Wild Waves is open? hmmm, might have to re-think our plans this Sunday.

Is Superflip (or whatever it's called now) at Gillian's open yet?

I didn't see Wild Waves running and didn't care to go to Gillian's.

No idea. We spent maybe 5 minutes at Gillian's because it has fallen off of a cliff regarding quality (if that's even possible).

I enjoyed my visit to Gillian's last month. I thought the Flume and Giant Wheel were great. Sure the park lacked thrill rides when I visited but it was clean and had friendly employees.

I rode Gale Force yesterday and loved it. I think there is still a little misalignment where the initial problem existed, since I felt a little bump there twice. Boy, are they nazis about loose items. First they told me to put all keys and metals objects in a bin, then they said put everything in a bin. When I asked they OK with my wallet, cash ride tickets staying in a zippered pocket, but not with my spare change and plastic cards in a zippered pocket. The gentlemen told me they did not want to be responsible for holding anything of value.

Wild Waves was not open, I asked a few workers and none recall it running with passengers this season. Then again some did not realize the difference between the two coaster tracks.

Nice to hear someone come on here and say they loved it. I feel like reviews have been mostly mixed. I still have yet to ride, I really gotta get over there. Hilarious about Wild Waves.
