I was working the loader side saying clear two. So you probably saw me considering I worked until closing.

Considering you told me you won't even ride a WindSeeker simply because you don't like spinning rides it won't make any difference if they do or not! :roll:

Yup, I heard you, as well as other ride attendants having fun :) The Flight Deck crew was very enthusiastic today, which is awesome I must say.

The only other TPR members I recall seeing today was Sunfire, who was in the control booth for Demon.

Considering what I posted was based off what you told me then yea I don't think it will be much of ride. I thought the point of a WindSeeker was for it to be high. If it can only go to the height of drop tower then just ride that.

Well opening day was pretty interesting as a supervisor. I got a few guest complaints about Invertigo being taken out, but nothing too major. And someone barfed at Demon, but I digress (I'm no longer grossed out by it like I used to when I was a new operator). I saw Angry_Gumball and his cousin (?) when I was working controls, so that was a pleasant surprise.

Also, Whitewater Falls is closed (there's an attraction closed sign up front), and Firefall's MIA with its gondola being worked on. Other than that, it was a cool opening day. I was definitely kept busy the whole day. I do hope attendance picks up though.

Yea, I saw some yogurt or something all over one of the seats I was ready to sit in...glad I didn't! I heard a few comments about Invertigo when I walked by the site but also nothing major other than "Oh yea, they took out Invertigo, that was a great ride!"

Why do I still have a donkey title???

The markers, for all we know, could just be for electrical or sewer lines, or maybe a new ride?

Hmm, does anybody know if a sewer line ran under Invertigo?

Maybe the circle is for the foundation of a giant super restroom, that would explain the sewer line..lol

Someone asked if a coaster could fit there? Well, there used to be one there, so there's your answer.

I would be ok with a Windseeker, kind of stupid as SFDK it getting one, but at least it would be a ride.... something!

If they really wanted to they could shoe horn a coaster in that area, or anywhere else for that matter.

Maybe the circle is where they are going to put a nice big decorative fountain.

I had a good time today, and that had to be the least crowded opening day I've ever seen there. I'll post some thoughts and pictures tomorrow, I'm exhausted right now (I lost track of how many laps I walked around the park today!)

You know, after reading this comment and seeing your pictures, I'm 99% sure I rode next to you guys on Tiki Twirl today. I thought the guy with the Haunt shirt looked familiar. Did you ride on the blue section?
