Ha--well, between you, Gary, and me--we almost have our ill-fated Northeast TPR caravan at BG.

Bad news TPR.

The DJ lance show has been canceled.

Counseling will be available for those that find that they need help.

So who ended up going today? Did anyone see any Mach Tower progress?
Reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn't wanna live there.

How are crowds on Opening Day? I'll be there next Saturday, and I'm curious as to what to expect!
1. Skyrush | 2. Maverick | 3. The Voyage | 4. El Toro | 5. Outlaw Run
6. Millennium Force | 7. I-305 | 8. Medusa: SC | 9. X2 | 10. Phoenix

Coasters: 290
Parks: 51

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

I was there for two hours today and whew! it was packed! But, the park staff did a marvelous job of maintaining swift operations. I got a ride each on Apollo, Griffon and Loch Ness Monster. Each line was around 20 to 30 mins long. I was proud of what BG managed to put together for today's event.

Now onto the new Oktoberfest. I say new because the area has changed significantly. New colors. New shelters and buildings. There are many changes to the way the walkways work. The area next to the Der Marketplace walk-through has been opened up as a pathway. Oktoberfest feels more like a single are than the two separate areas that it use to feel like. I will say the area is still incomplete. Mach Tower is still only 6-inches off the ground and the Beir garden is built but incomplete.

Of note, I saw two men "touring" the BBW area from the entrance to the Festhaus Park. Speculate away.

Hey everyone!

BGW was pretty busy yesterday from what I heard from the guests (both overflow lots were filled). I wasn’t able to explore the rest of the park outside of Oktoberfest because I was working, but I did see some pretty heavy crowds at the rides I ran all day.

Mach Tower is confirmed to open Memorial Day weekend!

If you guys spot Dan (Arizona) working rides, stop by and say hey! I'm working next Saturday so I'm looking forward to seeing some local TPR members.

^Though overjoyed by this news, I feel that BGW may pull a fast one like what BGT did...

Cheetaka ---> Cheetah Hunt

With our luck...

Verbolten ---> Uber Bahn
