Great TR!

I am still laughing over your 'in the bushes by flight of fear' picture!

^^&^^^I don't know. Anaconda was closed early in the day but ran for a while. But the coaster was broken by the time I headed back to ride it.

Let's just say that Anaconda isn't very high on my "priority-ride" list. ;)

Thanks for the report! I'll be heading down there tomorrow (Sunday) I'm hoping the rain that is forecasted doesn't ruin the day too much.

It's good to see Hypersonic still running... how were the crowds? By the looks of your pictures it dodn't look too busy. I'll try to do a TP myself if the rain stays away long enough!

Thanks again! :)

A griffon? How deliciously absurd!

Cool trip report, Chuck, and nice pictures as usual. I think the light crowds will come in handy this year given the park really doesn't have any true people movers.

I'm also looking forward to getting back onto FOF this year... it's been a while. Thanks again for the update

^You may have a strange desire to rent Star Trek: First Contact at Blockbuster tonight. Really, that music was the weirdest highlight of my visit yesterday.

YoshiFan wrote:$7.39 for a small slice of pizza and a soda? Wow, that's almost as bad as SF's pricing for food.


That is worse than any SF park I have been too. The size of that pizza was pathetic.

Great Tr Chuck! I know they don't have a bathroom by FOF but geez!

^I had that same thought after reviewing the "surveillance" pic last night, Jeff. :lolr: I hope you're feeling better today.

You can buy a whole pizza for $21.99 at KD, Rich--still ridiculously expensive, but a better deal if you split it with someone. And it actually tastes pretty good. There's a Bubba Gump's there, too, which is OK, but food at KD pretty much sucks.
