I'd like to know this too. One of the main reasons I decided to pull the trigger on a membership this year was because they advertised this as a perk. If they aren't going to do a soft opening for members, they really need to plan some other sort of event to make up for it. (Not just passholder previews for Fright Nights)

Also, War Eagle.


I called the park today to specifically ask about this and was told there WILL be a preview at the end of the week. She said watch the SFOG website for more details.

I get the feeling the preview will have to be sometime on Friday since I think they're trying to have TS open to the public on Saturday.

I also found a cached link that has not been made public yet but looks Very interesting.

My boyfriend and I had a chance to stop in and activate our memberships today so we decided to spend the last two hours in the park. Great day to do so, lines were non existent. We got in Dare Devil Dive, Goliath, Justice League, GASM, Monster Mansion, Batman, and Scorcher. We entered the que for Mind Bender just as it went down, so we missed out on that today, and at that time Batman was the only ride operating in Gotham City. We finished the day with a Sundae style funnel cake.

I will say, operations on DDD make me cringe, not that the rest of the park is great, but goodness, running 4 trains and all 4 were stacked in the station and brake run.

Twisted Cyclone looks fantastic. Not just the coaster, the entire area looks amazing. Appears they are down to finishing touches. No testing activity or coaster work, but tons of work sounds coming from inside the station and que areas.

Enjoy some photos taken with an iPhone.

Love this little theming touch, humor is greatly appreciated.

I’ve never noticed the weather vane before, or the other “steeple” atop the station.

Is it new?

Goliath, and it’s humps.

I’ve always had a thing for Batman, and the ride.

Interesting! I know Media Day is the 23rd so maybe they will formally announce it that day!! If it is Friday, I will miss it due to a graduation :(

I guess the wildcard would be Thursday. If the media day goes well on Wednesday there's no reason they can't have a soft opening/Passholders preview on Thursday. I think they would rather open it on Friday to less crowds then to try for Saturday of Memorial day weekend.

I Love Donkeys!

Interesting, I remember SFOG doing a T-shirt preview for JL and then doing a season passholder preview for JL a few days after. But these soft opening dates for TC are getting confusing for me.
