Awesome updates from everyone, you all know I wish I could be there but can't. It's just crazy to see GS grow more and more in between each week. When the off season starts, that's when they'll kick it into high gear and before you know it GS will be done. Anyone wanna camp out for opening day, lol. :lmao:

I've always wanted to, but haven't had a reason to do it. Now we have a good enough reason to camp out. Be first in line for GS of the season, even though we'll be there for media day as well, lol.

Nice update Jeff! Again, I like seeing what each of us has covered :)

Switching gears here from Haunt and Gold discussion to a future event at the park. Remember Global Winter Wonderland? It was noted a while back that it will take place inside of the park this year. A few rides (6) will be running including the Carousel, Berserker, Delirium, Flyers (yay!), Bumper Cars, and Celebration Swings. There will also be a handful of carnie rides brought in, primarily kiddie rides including tea cups, a couple Hampton "spinning umbrella" rides (as I call them, the typical jeep/motorcycle ride), Dizzy Dragons, Star Ship 2000, a funhouse, Century Wheel, kiddie train ride, and a random bee flat ride.

It looks like there will be a parking fee, park admission fee, and an additional fee to do the rides (not sure if this is just for the carnie rides or if CGA's as well). Also, I was flipping through some of the images they had posted on their site and found several interesting ones. Check out the "Lanterns" link for some interesting stuff!

Inverti-Castle! (This could very well be even bigger than Disneyland's Castle haha)

Going from evil clowns to an enchanted entry way...quite the polar opposite!

this sort of reminds me of the Beverly Hills Cop III reflection pond makeover with the elephant fountain.

And most importantly...

Somewhat Dino's Alive!

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!

I was hoping for a Wacky Worm for whoring purposes, but still...yay for carnie rides :) ! Especially a TPR takeover of Dizzy Dragons, those things are easy to spin riding solo, but with a group of crazies...oh dear...

I took the weekend off from GA as the lines are getting out of hand now- even last Sunday Flight Deck's line was 20 mins. Definitely looking forward to updates on the striker though :)

What Rolercstrluvr said, there will be at least 3 reports real soon... My report will be up when I get off work :)

Here's a teaser to hold you over for now.

It's amazing to watch how much the coaster is growing every week! Really appreciate all the updates people are doing, planning on checking it out before my Haunt shift on Saturday. Speaking of Haunt, if you plan on visiting this weekend I highly recommend on purchasing Fright Lane as it is going to be packed this weekend.
