Looks like a fantastic WCB! So many coasters. The new log ride looks absolutely great. Can't wait to see more, I know it's only 9am over there!

^Why even be negative at all when the group appears to be having a great day. A comment about Ghost Rider would be completely out of place for morning ERT.
