Great photos! The coaster really looks astounding. I think the thing that I truly dig about parks in the East is the bright, almost eye-spinning, color schemes and the way the parks are presented. Not that there's anything wrong with great US parks like Indiana Beach or Compounce or some of the Flags, but it seems to me that the way they are laid out and the colors/atmosphere that they employ give it almost a jovial, surreal feel to the whole experience. If this has already been said by other posters, I apologize for the duplicity.
Thanks again and sounds like a fantastic and exhausting trip!
