Couldn't agree more. Christmas Town is great, but it would be nice to open another coaster or two like Nessie or Alpengeist, especially since it's already snow themed. I guess the lack of coasters being open is due to maintenance, weather and staffing so it's kinda understandable. I went to Christmas Town last year and was able to marathon Verbolten since it was raining and it was a complete walk-on. The Christmas trees at the bottom of the last drop was a nice touch as well.
First, great photos Chuck! I made it opening weekend and will have some pictures to add in a few. As to Phil, you might be interested to know Alpengeist is open this year! I was really shocked to see an Alpengeist height restriction at the front of the park when entering, but thought I better not get my hopes up since it wasn't listed on the map, but then BAM! She was running! It was particularly awesome because the normal "lit" areas during night rides for Alpengeist were closed and dark (such as the rhine river, log flume etc) but the lights where on everywhere else. So going up the lift you got a great view of all the lights in the park, then an old-fashion BBW style experience night ride for the rest of it! Best Alpengeist night riding I've ever had, which was a real treat for me since it's my favorite ride at the park.
