Great TR! I really enjoyed reading through - every trip report should be like this. Flight Deck is looking good in it's new colors. Sad to see it isn't open, though.

Roller coasters are my passion. It's what I do, it's who I am.

Wow! What a fantastic report! Great photos! Front page worthy! Thank you for taking the time to post this! Kind of a bummer that so many rides were closed. Hope it was just an off day.

Thanks! and I agree, the new colors are a major improvement. I'm eager to see if they touched up any of the paint in the queue to match/highlight.

Thanks Robb, and thanks for putting it on the front page! I hope it was just an off day too. Flight Deck, Endeavor, and Drop Tower and some of my must rides when I visit.

I agree. I actually used it today in one of my Coasting For Kids tweets. Hope that was ok!

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

That was just an off day and I'm suprised they don't make the goldstriker crew clean graffiti last year we had to do it.
