Xcel is still closed, but there was a train back in the station yesterday, so that's got to be a good sign.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

I was at the park on Thursday and for the most part, it was quite a ghost town. I love how despite not having a line GhostRider was running with two trains all day. That was pretty awesome.

One guy on you tube kept claiming it was a Gerstlauer Infinity. Claimed he had a friend on the project, or something like that. A couple of days before the announcement he actually went to city hall, pulled the permits and saw the blueprints. City hall wasn't posting their July permits online, but anyone can go down and ask to see them. Anyway, that one guy ended up being completely spot on from the very beginning. As a side note, he was at the ceremony and actually did a better job of streaming the entire event than Knott's did. He was the one they were probably talking about when they said someone actually got it completely right. I give the dude credit. He deserves it.

The palm trees are up. Wonder if they move the camera, since the trees are blocking alot of the view now.

The construction area is going to help Scary Farm's Carnevil scare zone. It felt too thinly spread last year. Can't wait to experience it this Saturday!
Tigga, please!

Why do I still have a donkey title???
