Oh, okay... you were referring to Shockwave.... I thought it was something less obvious like a cart or building missing.

I've gone pantless!

There very well could be some other things missing; you were merely "over-thinking" my joke. ;)

As for the space around Delirium, I suppose there could be room for a few more flats.

Delirium looks fantastic! I will be visiting the park in May. It will be my second time I've been to this park. Wasn't a big fan of Shockwave, so I'm glad they got a good flat to go in its place. But most of all, I'm looking forward to riding I-305 again. After riding Skyrush and Fury 325, I got to go back and judge I305 again to see if it's still #1 or not.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Headed to the park today, they're warning of some delayed openings due to minimum temperature limits. Can someone please explain what they mean by that? Our home park is Six Flags Great Adventure so we're unfamiliar with this concept.

Certain rides can't run under a certain temperature. They maybe doing test rides until it gets warmer.

This happen to me with Millennium Force back in may last year when I visited.

This may have been asked brfore, but are KD and Busch Gardens offering a joint ticket for both parks again this year?

They did that last year. This year BGW is doing something with Williamsburg, packages and what not. KD and BGW are probably not doing the joint ticket this year, but I could be wrong. But I haven't been able to find anything online about it. Maybe the closer it gets to summer, they might again. Would be nice.

We were lucky enough to be on the first public ride ever on Delirium! Great ride!

Is this a new lighting package? It looks great as does the one on Delirium. This area should look great at night.

Fun TV says it's 40 degrees so they finally fired up Intimidator!
