Photo TR: Six Flags Over Texas - Holiday In The Park

Postby coaster1 » Sun Nov 27, 2005 4:44 pm

So .. first day of Holiday in the Park was Friday (11/25) and I ventured out since the first Friday is usually dead. Well .. we got there at like 3:45 to wait in traffic at the toll plaza for 10 minutes with all lanes open.

Ok so the park was a TAD crowded when it opened at 4pm, so I headed to get some quick construction photos since it would be dark soon. After that got a ride on Shockwave, Mine Train, Titan (bleh) and just walked around being dumb. The park was INSANLEY crowded and with alot of rides closed, made it worse. But the cool temps, not cold, but not hot made it nice. Most lines were over 45mins so we skipped alot ... but did get some Fajitas and Pink Things .. mmm Pink Things.

Sweet! Nice TR. I haven't been to Holiday in the Park in years. I take it not as many coasters open this year as in previous years?

So yeah about half the park, well coaster wise and then when you throw in lower operations due to rehabs .. it can get bad.

^Wow, that would be really disappointing. I guess it's nice that they at least still gave you guys Judge Roy, the Mountain, and Shockwave. Am I the only person that finds Runaway Mountain to be an awesome ride?
