Hate to be the bearer of bad news for anyone going to the park today or soon...

Last night some random girl popped up in the Great Adventure Connoisseurs FB group with a seemingly convoluted tale about how she tried to ride Wonder Woman yesterday, but while in line the ride began "shaking violently as if it was going to collapse"/"making strange noises" and then they shut the ride down. Of course the jaded enthusiasts of the group jumped on her for making sh*t up and starting BS rumors, and after a few minutes she simply deleted the thread. End of story, or so we thought.

Today the ride is listed as closed on the app and the website and not only is there a large crane on site/work being done, they even put the construction fence back up...

Ugh, we were supposed to be going to the park TOMORROW so my mother and brother could ride it.

F**k.

I mean, it could be nothing, right?

^^ I too haven't gotten over there yet since it opened and was hoping to do so over the next week or two since I have some time off around the 4th and not a whole lot of plans. Guess I'm gonna wait-and-see now.

Relevant: it seems all the other giant discoveries within the chain are in fact operating.

Why do I have a feeling they’re going to tame down the ride like they did to SFOT, where it barely swings 90°.
I hope I’m wrong but ugh, not looking good

OK so via a reputable source @ the park today - the fence is up because apparently the concrete around the ride hadn't completely set because of all the hot weather, so they are repaving over there. There is ride maintenance taking place, but (apparently) has nothing to do with the fence.

Did the donkey fairy give me this title?

Took an extra day off from work on the end of my VA vacation to stop at GAdv on the way home and it is absolutely dead today. Arrived at noon and within the first hour rode Cyborg, Justice League twice, Batman in back, Nitro in back, and Skull Mountain in back. Glad I stopped by.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Where's a good place near SF to grab a somewhat quick meal and a beer for dinner? For lunch, do they have wraps or anything remotely healthy in the park? We like to eat at least somewhat clean for lunch and we don't care as much for dinner.

They have grilled chicken wraps at Metro Grill between Wonder Woman and Justice League.

There's not much down that road, honestly. I know there's a McDonald's and a Wawa, and maybe a couple other fast food places?

I'd say you would be best off picnicking in the parking lot, but the security line is stupid there. I'd suggest the Go Fresh Cafe. It's not great, but it's healthier than the others they offer. Liberty Tavern has the beer U want.
