Yes it does hint at a Japanese theme. By the way, the Japanese emblem in the logo means "Speed".

For the locals, how is Big One regarded these days? Is it still viewed as an intimidating star attraction w/ good ridership, or has its reputation waned over the years?

The Big One is definitely the star attraction and its mostly the busiest ride except on very hot days, where Valhalla will be the busiest mainly due to its low capacity.

The Wild Mouse was closed the first week of the season but after that it has been open all season.

The Wild Mouse actually opened in May, the ride required modernisation to some of its safety features which have been done now and the ride is operating daily now that we've reached the summer season.

The Big One remains very popular with the GP and whilst UK enthusiasts like to call it a Monorail they are often seen running through the park to get on it at park opening time which is of course very contradictory! In all seriousness it remains very popular with the GP and BPB fans too! :)

This may be old news but anyone seen the footage of the trespassers climbing The Big One? Haven't posted it in case it's deemed inappropriate. A slight security concern that they were up there.

As for bounding about up there unsupported - truly mad.
