Honestly, I've gone opening weekend every year since 2010 and it mostly depends on the weather. If it's sunny than it's usually pretty busy for opening weekend, but if the weather isn't that nice, than not as many people come out. Operations are always iffy, especially with so many new people, but it's not the total suckfest alot of people make it out to be.

The few reviews I heard of the portable VR drop tower outside the Super Bowl were positive, so I think this is a cool idea. I just question why they put it on Acrophobia which already has an awesome gimmick with the tilting seats. After Goliath, it was probably my favorite ride during my visit last year.

Hopefully it works out well for the park, but I think I'd prefer to go without it personally.
Top 5 Wood- Phoenix, Boulder Dash, El Toro, Comet (Great Escape), Cyclone (Coney)

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Although I'm sure people will like it - I won't be participating :)

I love Acrophobia, but do suffer from pretty bad Arachnophobia. I'm scared S#*tless of spiders. Even fake cartoony or VR CGI ones just plain bother me.

Oh well- more rides on Mindbender I guess =)

I'll never understand why people have such an irrational fear of spiders. Seems like its such a widespread thing among people I know. I always let them live - they kill all the other bugs! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I am contemplating it. Depends on the weather for me but definitely will try and make it out this weekend.

I don't kill them and my rational mind knows how much good they are overall.

Then the irrational mind freaks the f&%k out and gets as far away as possible.

Still don't kill them because A: that just wouldn't feel right and B: I'd have to get close enough to do so and the spider would probably kill me.

LOL! We get house centipedes which are much scarier and faster than most spiders I do come across, but they too are insectivores like spiders so I have to remind myself they'll kill other bugs but I still instinctively try to kill them because the freak us the f*ck out nonetheless. :lol: Luckily we see them much less often in the new place we're at now.

We get plenty of house centipedes as well. Hate those little monsters! I know they're "good" bugs as well but my wife don't care. She wants them dead yesterday!

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?
