^ I was thinking the same thing about the flume, but it does look like the new path starts immediately after Dan McGraw's so I'm hopeful the flume isn't on the chopping block.

Nice warm day in Upstate NY today. Decided to enjoy the day at TGE. Park was actually pretty busy. Credit to them for still having Raging River open. It was a welcomed cool down. Overall we had a good time.

Just got back from a visit to Great Escape- the first time I'd been there in years. Park was crowded for opening weekend of Fright Fest. Went straight for Bobsled, it was open with about a 5 minute wait; the ride broke down while I was on the lift hill thanks to fog from a nearby machine tripping a sensor. Ride was running about 10 minutes later; the one ride was pretty enjoyable.

Comet was about a two train wait and extremely rough. Barely fit in the seat as it is; it's not big people friendly at all. Had some decent airtime, but between the roughness and the forceful turns it was quite painful. I don't remember the ride being that rough... it desperately needs a retracking.

Left shortly after; we were hungry and the lines at just about every food place were ridiculous, plus the park was so crowded getting around was difficult.

^ Bummer about Comet running rough. I thought it was running fine in late June. However, one train was running way faster than the other one.

^ The one that actually says Comet on it is the smoother ride experience from what I've learned from my July visit.

I was on the blue train. It flew right along, but it was still rough. Doesn't help that I couldn't fit in the restraints too well...

Looking back at my photos, the blue train was the faster train. That was the one without the logo.

^ That one gave me a rough ride. The red train was smooth.
