My favorite moment of 2004 was taking a boat around during Halloweekends when Paddlewheel was still open and literally not being able to see an inch in front of the boat. Scariest moment of my life not even seeing the sides (which is dangerous since it's not on a track and navigating the Millennium bridge is bad enough being able to see it and plenty of things to crash into, like the train tracks...) and the animations still chattering away in the distant fog. The air was deathly still that night and they turn the fog machines toward the lagoon if the trail gets too thick with fog so it all just hung over the water.

^When I went in 2004, we waited 4 hours for dragster. The line was over flowing all the way to Gemini and still had some temporary switch backs. I was only 10 back then so off course it was worth it.

Speaking of bridges, they are partially backfilling the lagoon near the maintenance bridge. They'll probably also backfill toward the bottom edge of the cameras view, then drain that section for construction.

Anyone know where to get cheap/discounted tickets for the Friday nights?
I found coupon codes for Saturday that will save me some money, but since I lost my getaway guide, I got nothing for Friday.

Thanks

Since they don't open until 6pm, Fridays are only $30 to begin with. I'm not sure they'll give you a discount in addition to that. If I remember, I check my getaway guide when I get home.

For those who havn't heard, Demon Drop will be moved to Knott's Berry Farm next year. Its on page two.
http://www.buenapark.com/Modules/ShowDocument.aspx?documentid=1409
Knott’s Berry Farm will be replacing the existing “Screamin’ Swing” ride with “Demon Drop”,
in the area previously occupied by “Vertigo.” Demon Drop will be 131 ft. tall and consist of
a 4-person enclosure that rises on tracks to the top of a tower before descending into a
horizontal slide above the midway before returning to the starting point. Demon Drop
installation is scheduled to begin on January 4, 2010.

So get your final rides in! Unfortunately I didn't go on Demon Drop when I went to Cedar Point last year and i'm regretting it now. But maybe this will give us an idea of where they will expand in the future.

Awwwww, not Demon Drop! I've had many fun rides on that thing over the years... especially in the past few since basically no one rides it anymore so multiple rides in a row are not only a possibility but expected. Ah well, hope something worthwhile will go in in its place.

I wouldn't take it too seriously since it hasn't been officially confirmed yet by either of the parks.
