bert425 wrote:^ usually most everything is open except for:

the Bumper Cars (it gets used as "skating" rink).
the Gully Washer (whitewater rafts)
Bug's WhiteWater Rapids (log flume) some years seems to operate, and some years doesnt. . so not really sure on that one.
and the Whitewater Bay (waterpark "land") will be closed for the season

Most everything else should be operating I'd expect.
the Train morphs into the Holiday express, so it wont' stop 1/2 way, and instead just does a trip around the park from the Crack Axle station.


as to Flash Pass? I never buy it, but it's my home park, so I just ride things another time, if a line is too long.

that said? you'll need it for: Wonder Woman (terrible capacity, especially if they are still only filling every other seat), Iron Rattler (even if they have the 2nd train running, this one always pulls long lines), Poltergeist (Premier Launch coaster - that has really long load/dispatch times, so even a short line will take a while, and Flash Pass entrance puts you right into the station), and Joker (the new ride from last year).

so if you want to get a lot of re-rides? I'd spend the $$ on it if offered.

just my 2cents.

oh. . and Goliath (Batman clone at the front), Superman Krypton Coaster (B&M Floorless), and Pandemonium (Gerstlaur spinner) are all people eaters. . so even long lines move really fast for those.

Batman (S&S freespin) rarely has a line (people are scared of it for some reason), and on the other end of the spectrum, Boomerang (Vekoma) ALWAYS has a line - I think that's the location tho: it's the first major ride if you walk into the park and go straight ahead to the main plaza. So many folks go to it. Hint: take a left immediately past the main gates, and Goliath is right there. .it's amazing how many people walk right by it not realizing that's the entrance.

Roadrunner Express will sometimes pull long lines during HitP, because so many families with kids.. I don't know if that has Flash Pass tho. . think they may have removed that line a while back. It's a custom Arrow Minetrain that's worth a ride.


Thanks for all that info, Bert! Now here's hoping that trip doesn't get pushed back even more. :p

Dare Devil Dive is coming along. Saw a vid on TTS. I hope it runs faster than shown however. Anyone hear when it opens?

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

^They've been saying late this month or early next month for DDD opening. Looks like they're mainly finishing up theming elements right now.

Great Pics! This is one park I cannot wait to return to in the next year or two. If the Dare Devil Flying Machines is a success, I bet my next paycheck they will install a copy at SFoG in their new ScreamPunk District. They will need to pick another name since they already have a Dare Devil Dive Coaster.

Donkeys are my way of life!

Bert! Congrats on the weight loss and thanks for the trip report. We are determined to reschedule for next year and make it down there.

Will have a lot to celebrate at the end of the school year; my last year teaching and the boy's last year in high school. Of course at the moment I am teaching virtually from an empty classroom. We are required to drive in to school but are not allowed to meet with anyone, so we have to zoom with other teachers in other empty classrooms. Seriously. :roll:
