So wait.. no more Asian music up on Samurai Summit anymore? That sucks.
I haven't even been there with the new music yet, and already I have a feeling that I liked the themed music better. The only exception was when I was riding Ninja about 2 years ago... in a fluke, the TV's were working, and they were playing a Muse video, which was totally cool.
Otherwise, I hope I'm not walking around with my fingers in my ears all day (by the way, how loud is this new music?)

^ I haven't heard any music at the top that's changed. As of Wednesday it was still the same Asian looping songs. I've heard the 'new' music in the front plaza along with the Goliath area. I'm sure there's other midways that play it too.
When I walked the park today, Baja Ridge and Gotham City were the same as normal. Six Flags Plaza, Goliath Plaza, and Colossus County Fair were all the new music. (These 3 areas I believe, are connected in Park Sound.)
When I worked on Summit for a short time there was a working TV near where I was. I recall it playing Faint by Linkin Park, something by Simple Plan, a band that sounded exactly like Incubus but was not really Incubus, and the single most annoying song in history, something by Junior Senior. So there always has been, to at least some degree, modern pop music playing up at Summit.
A Listerine infiltration, Festival Latino, new signs, and more *yuck* employees.
We'll start w/ new things:
Here we see the new construction at Chicken Plantation for the soon to open "Justice League Feast".
Coldstone still to come. (Coldstone and Johnny Rockets is now listed on the park map, with no mention of "comming soon", so I have seen people disappointed when they get to the locations to see the "comming soon" signs.
New kiosks in Colossus County Fair. (Also one by Waterfront in Movie District.) I am assuming (and REALLY hoping they are info kiosks!)
New wait time signs at some of the rides.
New Listerine sponsorship. I saw at least 4 signs or banners up in the park. "Billboard Mountain"?
Festival Latino tomorrow.
At least the midways were VERY clean today!
New baby geese.
This fun employee on the phone...
...what else is new?
And this fun employee with her shirt untucked, and drinking soda, spilling it all over the midway.
Drinking in front of guests faces.
You know, I'd understand if it was water, and it was a hot day, but neither was the case.
This picture...um, well.....
Despite all the weird things, it was a great day at the park. It was pleasantly crowded, but I had the chance to ride the smaller coasters and some flat rides.
