Speaking of SLC's.... If you all remember correctly, BOTH Serial Thriller at Geauga Lake AND Serial Thriller at Astroworld dropped a train off of their transfers opening season.

It'll be interesting to see if the mountain eventually comes down with the ride or not since that was there long before the ride.

^ The mountain most likely will come down also. It is 40 years old and was looking a bit rough for the past few years.

I imagine the mountain might have been the one of the biggest maintaince headaches of the ride, given it’s age and history.

Kings Dominion just announced they repainted the Eiffel Tower and renovated the surrounding area over the off season.

They also said they are preparing the Eiffel Tower structure for a surprise TBA. Wonder what that could be..

Checked out passholder preview yesterday. It was quite busy and an absolutely gorgeous day.

Here are some shots of the future Parched Pig. Looking forward to hanging out there.

Taking a weekend trip down to Kings Dominion and possibly Busch Gardens. Started out at the Dominion today. Finally after waiting years I managed to get on my first RMC! I gotta admit twisted timbers does not disappoint. The park ended up closing early at 5 due to rain but I will be back tomorrow. It looked like demo on Volcano continues and the covered shed at the end of the first launch is now completely gone, definitely gonna miss that ride. Not a bad day all in all, rainy but it was completely dead every ride was a walk on :b
