It was the first free friend day of the year, and it was PACKED! Probably the busiest day so far this year. Every line was at least an hour and the line for parking stretched all the way to the 5. The parking lot was full and half the dirt lot was full as well. In the end, park hours were extended to 7PM!

I will add photos later tonight!

TPR will have an update as well! Luckily I don't actually care to ride anything when I am at SFMM...so I just enjoyed the fact they were woefully caught off guard by today. Not sure how they wouldn't be predicting a busy day, with a cheer competition AND free friend day...

The front gate is getting a re-model. New turnstiles and stuff, I guess.

Almost into March and we are still using 2013 park guides??? It would be one thing if they didn't have a date on them, but handing out 2013 maps in 2014, I dunno, just looks bad.

Mooseburger (or whatever it's going to be) getting new paint.

Still think it's funny they use a mix of those really old bumper cars and the somewhat new ones.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

I'm assuming one of the Bonzai Pipelines will be taking it's place. As much as I loved the Venom Drop, I think it was time for it to go. The slide did scrape your back pretty bad. It will be missed. :(
