Georgia Scorcher is an awesome standup coaster! And by "an awesome standup coaster" I mean I guess I didn't totally hate the piece of sh*t but I'd still rather ride literally any other coaster in the park except the sh*tty wooden one.

Honestly, I love the pretzel loop, but after being spoiled by Manta, Superman Ultimate Flight is rather boring. I'd rather ride Georgia Scorcher than that. But Superman, Georgia Scorcher, Blue Hawk, and Dare Devil Dive are all about even for me.
Great American Scream Machine is, well, you know. Dahlonega Mine train is boring too, but it's a mine train.

Because of how unbelievably bumpy Great American Scream Machine is, I always take pleasure looking back at the fact TPR tried the water cup challenge on it. Deep South Bash

Well I think it's safe to say that construction has finally started on SFOG newest addition for 2019, Pandemonium. I drove over to the old lickskillet entrance parking lot where the go-karts are located hoping something has started for the ride's construction and I can now confirm there is construction happening. The little building where Thomas' friends would be inside of in the back of whistlestop where the old Thomas Town train would travel around along the tracks is gone, and I think all or most of the train tracks is gone as well as I saw a bobcat machine in that area. So yes, Pandemonium is going in that area as I also saw signs that said "Construction Zone, Hard hats required." on the wood fence blocking the front entrance of whistlestop from the skybuckets.

Finally found a weekend with no rain so we spent a full day at Holiday! Park was well attended; ride lines were very short except for Justice League with about a 45 minute wait.
Curiously, the Joker (Larson Loop) was closed with the ride vehicle removed. This ride had been getting very loud so it was probably due for a rehab. Also - the railroad was not operating. The coaches were in Marthasville station but the locomotive was nowhere to be seen. I doubt this is rehab though as the Ride to the North Pole is a HitP staple attraction. With the General still damaged to a fire early in the season, the Texas has been doing all the heavy lifting most of this year. Hopefully it will be back in service for my final visits of the year the next couple weeks.
All in all it was a great day to visit!
- FINALLY some nice weather! It was a chilly but sunny day - perfect!
- Ummm....something is missing

The Larson Loops are always loud, even on their opening day.

Did you check to see if the Joker coaster train was on the transfer track?

Turns out that when I went to go check out the Pandemonium construction in the old lickskillet entrance parking lot, the yellow train and purple track that would travel along the loop was in that parking lot behind the go-karts. What is going on with that ride?
