despite horrific traffic (it took us over an hour just to get from North Austin to South Austin), we still went to Fiesta today, and had a wonderful - tho cold and drizzly time.
I'll have a report up (with pictures) hopefully by Friday. . but just wanted to pop in to mention a few things:
-- despite what the very out of date "Holiday in the Park: Rides" listing on the web site says - EVERYTHING seemed to be up and operating (several with multiple trains), other than Boomerang (no great loss, I'd say). Twister is already gone, and Whirlygig is in pieces, but both of those are listed as "closed" for the season on the site anyways.
Not listed, but open: Goliath, Poltergeist, Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Iron Rattler. . . and due to the cold, drizzly day (and it being the day before Thanksgiving), all were pretty much walk on. Longest wait was maybe 15 minutes for Wonder Woman, operating two trains, one with 2 seats blocked off.. so capacity of 14 total. still. . way shorter wait than usual.
-- Wonder Woman, which breaks down multiple times every day in normal weather? Was operating in a steady drizzle the whole time we were there, and didn't break down even once! and with the track so lubricated? the thing was absolutely bonkers today. FLYING thru the track even smoother than normally.
-- the new Giant Ornament decoration in the central plaza is *stunning* , as is the standard giant tree in Rockville (that was all kinds of pretty colors this year).
-- No official Six Flags photographers were out, which was extremely strange. Not at the front gates, nor near the displays. Maybe they all took off early for Thanksgiving prep? Luckily, the crowd at the park today was the best I've ever seen at a Six Flags. Taking pics for others who wanted to pose, moving out of shots so others could get good pics. Just good vibes all over, and I met a ton of friendly folks while riding alone (Nick only rode the train today)
-- oh, and they had real snow blowing down over the streets of Rockville during the tree lighting ceremony. That was nice and unexpected.
-- have to ding em tho: They went all out on Entry Plaza and Rockville areas. . .but some of the displays at Fiesta, really looked like they made a trip to Home Depot, bought some lawn crap (inflatables & Standees), and just put them around the park. In particular in Kidzopolis, and on the Holiday Express Train ride
had a wonderful, if chilly and wet time.
I'll get some pics up later this week.
