Speaking of Christmas Town, it'll be my first time back since their first year (2009), anything that I must check out while I'm there?


The whole park, with the odd exception of the Sesame Street Forest of Fun, is part of Christmas Town now. There is a new show, "Scrooge No More," in the Globe Theatre, and be sure to check out the "retro" decorations in Festa Italia (reminds me of Christmas time in the small town where I grew up). Food is very good--especially the steak or prime-rib sandwich at the Festhaus. The buffet at Santa's Fireside Feast in Ireland was good last year, too.

The only operating coaster will be Verbolten, but pretty much all the flats will be running. And, of course, there are penguins in France (but I wouldn't wait more than 10 minutes or so for that).

So with Verbolten being the only operating coaster and "Capacity" crowds that are at Christmas town, how long is the line?

^May depend on how cold it is. ;)

The park operates as a lower capacity for Christmas Town, so it won't be as crowded as, say, a Saturday night during HOS; however, the park has hit capacity during CT weekends in the past.

Some photos of the new Pasta coaster. It looks like supports have started going up for the two main tower structures, as well as the building foundation and station/launch track.

Even though I'm really not a fan of this color scheme, it's definitely going to bring even more color to Festa Italia. I wish they'd go ahead and announce the damn thing already.

That color scheme is "interesting." I wonder if they'll be making any other color changes in Festa Italia to match it.

Lol, no use hiding the new ride now. People can see it from Apollo's Chariot. I am mad at myself for visiting the park this summer before they built this. Also, I think the word filter should change Tempesto to PastaCoaster like how Fulll Throttle ((I spelled it wrong on purpose to make my point) turns to YOLOcoaster.
I'm done.
