^ They've made season passes so cheap that I don't think their attendance has suffered. I got my season pass for $60 on Black Friday. Daily admission is like $45.

Park had really improved this year with great operations despite one train ops, looking forward to night rides on boulder dash

The park website listed Boulder Dash as closed tonight.

Does anyone know if it was weather (temperature was in the 40s) or something else? I know it has valleyed before on cold morning test runs, but I've ridden it in temperatures like this in past years at Graveyard.

Edit- Boulder Dash valleyed during testing. The park has a post on Facebook to come out and ride Boulder Dash tonight so I'll assume it will reopen.

BD was running for all of 5 min tonight, but went down again now. Ops said they expect it back up soon. We'll ses!

Edit - open now! Almost no one In the park, will be closing at 9 but plenty of chances to ride until then, if you don't mind a little rain.

Definitely say hi if you see me. I'm wearing the sky blue Yankee Cannonball hoodie and I'm probably not leaving Boulder Dash all night.

Out of curiosity, does anyone know when Lake Compounce changed their Potato Patch fries?

In the past, they were these beautiful, hand-cut things.

A few weeks ago, I got these waffle fries. They were still good, but they weren't the Potato Patch fries I remembered.

...whaaaat? I can deal with Boulder Dash being a bit sluggish, I can deal with the skyride coming down. I can make myself okay with losing Enterprise and Lights Out, I can suffer through most of the changes. But no more real potato patch fries...

I give up, SFNE is my home park now.

(only sort of half joking. Seriously though, potato patch fries are huge, wtf were they thinking?)
