^^ Nice report! Good to hear they got the drop tower open again.

Great Adventure's Batman also seems to run faster as the temperature drops (granted that one runs in the teens while I imagine it was 50-70 in Atlanta).

Georgia's Batman hauls. They all do, but that one seems like it's especially nuts.

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

Didn't realize it had not been mentioned.

It was running the last Sat in Sep.
I made a last-minute trip that day to activate a pass.

I also had a chance to get to the park late Sunday night for a couple of rides on TC. I've ridden it over 40x now and I have to say it was running faster than ever before. I was out of my seat during the entire wave turn and the hill before and after the turn around were especially intense.

I'm curious if anyone else has had the same experience recently?

Thanks

Did my donkey title just change???

Just wait 'til Holiday in the Park! When the temps really drop, it feels like my shoes are going to fly off into the parking lot! :b
I have been on seven copies of this ride and I have to believe ours may be the fastest...

Stopped at the park a little before closing last Saturday on the way home from a NC trip that involved a certain giga coaster (and some more important stuff, but a giga coaster too). Ended up only having time for one coaster, but I think I chose wisely.

Twisted Cyclone (x1): I love RMC. This thing is hilariously fun, smooth, and comfortable with crazy airtime and other weird sensations that don't make total sense. On paper it looks short but it kinda just kept going with absolutely flawless pacing. No dead space at all. Great ride here.
1. Fury 325 | 2. Millennium Force | 3. New Texas Giant | 4. Outlaw Run | 5. Maverick | 6. Twisted Cyclone | 7. Iron Rattler | 8. The Voyage | 9. Goliath (SFGAm) | 10. Time Traveler

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

My goodness, yes. It's very aggressive and barely gives you any time to catch your breath.

I was checking this topic every weekend waiting on someone to announce that it was back open and no one said a word. Then Sunday morning I was watching a live stream on FB of the Coffin Challenge and I heard that familiar high pitched ‘hum’ in the background. I opened a new tab and came back to this topic to double check and found nothing. But my face lit up when I saw the gondola at the top of the tower as I got off the bus. That’s how I knew it was going to be a great day!

Sorry. I don't check it often.

With the last-minute nature (got an email while out of the country that I had to go activate that pass as sion as I git back.) I wasn't there long and didn't even think about posting.

I Love Donkeys!

Does anyone know how packed it’s going to be on the weekend of Thanksgiving? I’m on our annual family trip to Dollywood and wanted to visit the park for the first time. My priotrities are are the main coasters and haunted mansion. Also if anyone knows any good local food places around that they can recommend, that would be great!
