I thought Nitro's temperature limit was when the trains froze to the track.

Nice report Bill. I apparently missed you guys by just a day as I was there on Saturday with the family, it was also only our second visit of the season. My daughter hit her 44" height requirement so she's now the newest inductee into the Cult of Skull Mountain.

She's only 4 but she's been hardcore into Halloween and spooky stuff since the end of August, so we promised her one more weekend of "bonus Halloween". We bit the bullet and tried out the mazes. Yeah, they were pretty much uniformly terrible, some more so than others. I think the only one we actually really enjoyed was Reflections of the Dead, but that's mainly because we enjoy the mirror mazes. That being said, this was still only the second worst haunt we did all season. Kudos to Bayville Scream Park in Long Island for being the suckiest of the sucks. Favorites were probably a tie between Dorney and the Elysburg Haunted House out near Knoebels (we didn't end up making it out to Kings Island this year, unfortunately).

Now that that's over and done with... bring on the hot chocolate! Let's get our Holiday in the Park on!
That coaster dad [338] and that coaster kiddo [220]. Road trip buddies for life.
Dad's faves: Fury 325. Phantom's Revenge. Twisted Timbers. Intimidator 305. El Toro.

Kiddo's faves: Talon. Alpengeist. Raptor. TMNT Shellraiser. Fury 325.

I just swallowed a whole donkey!

I think last HITP, someone said Nitro was running in the teens or single digit temperatures :)

I can confirm I rode Nitro with temperatures in the upper teens/low 20s last year. It was throwing an absolute fit though.

All right, first trip report of cold season. 33 though...wow. 61 here last weekend, we had to break out the light jackets. :lol: Good on y'all for not letting the cold faze you.

And you're correct on apple beer. Cider is great. Beer is great. Apple beer is a monstrosity.

Next time I go will be Autism Day 2020. Jersey Devil won't have opened yet, but I'm not planning to go on it because I can't do anything with steep drops (I haven't done Nitro yet even if my friend has went on it.)

RIP my love of Cyborg: Cyber Spin. Killed by freaking hangtime.

Ever since they've lightened up severely on their camera policy. I've been going to GADV sometimes just for photos. Here's some photos I've taken over the past few weeks.

^ Whoa!! Amazing shots!! That first one of El Toro is breathtaking!! And I really love the one of KK! The last one of Batman is awesome due to the timing of both rides lining up for the shot!

Thanks for posting!
