Nice TR. Thanks for posting. Add me to the long list of people who enjoy the evil tower eyes.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

:lol: :lmao: :lol: :lmao: :lol: That's pathetic. I'll be riding a B&M in December in Massachusetts if anyone needs me.

If you're opening all the way to Zephyr why wouldn't you open Flight of Fear?

Remember that coaster enthusiasts aren't the target market for Winterfest so this terrible ride lineup probably won't matter too much to most people. I don't expect a HUGE turnout, but they don't need a huge turnout. These events generally attract families and by their very nature lead to a large increase in in-park spending per guest. They're being conservative and keeping costs low. I'm sure they'll do a great job with the lights, I'm sure the shows will be nice. If you live nearby and have a season pass you should absolutely go, check out the atmosphere, support the event by buying some merchandise and hot chocolate or something and then power ride Mystic Timbers which will likely be a walk-on.

It's an event for locals, and even for enthusiasts it's better than what you had last year but I'd definitely go on a road trip to Six Flags St. Louis, Dollywood or even Great Adventure if you're feeling ambitious and actually want to ride some coasters in the winter.

But hey... there's nothing wrong with being able to ride Mystic Timbers in December.

I definitely agree. I'm a gold pass holder so I plan to check it out.
Maybe if this year is a success they'll have more rides open next year.

I honestly wasn't expecting them to open any coasters. If they had to only choose one, I'm glad they chose Mystic Timbers. It's a solid ride and it makes the most sense (good for families while still thrilling). Of course wish there could be more open, but I'm still glad to have some more time to ride Timbers this year!

But I'll also be planning a Dollywood trip as well
