I see that Batman, as he does at SFMM, is wearing the Adam West suit with the Michael Keaton cape and cowl.

Nice job--thanks for the pics.

Wow, how amazing is it that even after all these years, the Giant Drops still get big lines? Maybe its just because its new to the area, but still, that's awesome! Glad to see not only was this ride saved from Astroworld, but that it also received so much attention already.

I wish there were more good tall Giant Drops around my area.
All clear....

Dispatch, enjoy your ride.

Thanks for posting the pictures!

Drop rides are fun and they are the only type of ride that still scares me every time that I ride it.

^ Yes, the 1st half of the Screamin' Eagle got repainted with the red tracks, white structure, and blue rails. I think the last half is getting painted over the winter.
Looks like SFSTL is getting one of those spinning coasters for next year.

Nice review and photos!

Couple of comments:

1. Park mgr- Nice tie..lol (bet he doesn't wear that to church).
2. the ORIGINAL WW is HOT!!!!!!!!! (Lynda Carter-bring HER to 6F).
3. Batman- 2 words. JENNY CRAIG (and sit-ups).
4. With all the investment into that ride and theming, couldn't they have sprung a little more cash to put a decent que-line? (Or are those movable que's just temporary?)
5. The girl in the photo had a nice smile, but she REALLY appeared bored of the whole thing (just my opinion..lol).

Eagle below is painted half way from the beginning of the hill behind the station all the way to the break statio is un painted still. The track was reworked and include banking on the L back in to the station and the turn before the final hills before the station! This was redone this year. I dont remeber it last year. They used to be level, like the old cyclone curves, This was built before banking was thought about! This may also be a reason for waiting to paint this end, In case of problems. Seems they were haveing issues this morning!
