^ Honestly I've had worse waits for Ride of Steel. I had to wait almost a hour on a weekday. Even with a full queue on a Saturday, Boulder Dash's line tops out at 30-40 minutes. Still it's frustrating since it should be half that.

I hope Holiday in the Park encourages Compounce to open some thrill rides for the event.

^ It must be that we just hit it on days with bad operations as we have waited well over an hour with a line that went across the bridge. Of course, it didn't help that line-jumping was fairly prominent too.

Here are a few pics from the Nor’ Easter event last Saturday. The park said they are actively planning for the next 5-7 years and have things planned that will look nice and do well for the park.

Wildcat’s work is being finished up along with the awesome new entrance.

I like how the new paint looks!

Wildcat is getting some track work on the final turnaround. This part and the last two hills did not do so well with the new trains.

RIP free soda.

Damn I can't believe they scrapped the free soda. That was one of the best parts of visiting the park.

Nice update! I'm really intrigued to try out the retracked Wildcat.

Honestly, it will feel pretty weird seeing the ride open. After it was closed basically all of last year and several of the past Graveyards, I can't recall the last time I have even seen it open.

I suppose I can understand why they got rid of the free soda; food and drink are a huge source of income for any park. Still, it really kinda sucks. That was kind of a signature thing for the park. The last year really has not been good to LC; I hope something great is coming soon to get the place going in the right direction again.

I poke manatees in the butt.

I agree with all of this. Im thinking that there could be a major coaster addition within the next 2-4 years.

You can say that again. Between the closure of the skyride, botching the re-tracking of Wildcat, and letting Boulder Dash get rough and crashing its trains into each other, they had a really tough 2017.
