^Me too. Slime has always been an integral part of Nickelodeon and YCDTOTV put Nick on the map. I just hope they don't screw it up.

It was Government on Display at the Mall so there where some exhibits from various agency's including the US Navy so there are couple of pictures from the divers and one of the military bands with a large US flag in the back round.

In response to the whole prices issue, I definitely agree that $7.00 for one ride on Timberland Twister is COMPLETELY out of the question. However, out of all the times I have gone to MoA, I've always bought a wristband. The park obviously did this to increase wristband sales which is smart on their part.

I'm not sure what I missed, but does anyone know what they're building near the first drop of Spongebob? Is it some kind of tunnel?

Splatosphere has test dummies and is now testing. I was kind of surprised to see it half way up the tower considering it was just put up a few days ago.

Wow. They are finishing up pretty quick. What would (to me) look like a longer period time to finish, seems to have taken a shorter time

Glad to see them testing Splat, but it's also humorous to me to see all those dummies sitting on the cement wall. Kind of surreal.

In a wierd way, this one has become one of my favorite parks, due to it's uniqueness before and after this rennovation. It's so different from some of the other parks. I like different. :)

Those signs are lying. According to them, Avatar has 1,000 feet of track and Spongebob has over 2,100 feet. A little disappointing that Avatar will only hold 12 people a cycle.

But on a side note, great photos.
