No amount of "forum cool points" is worth violating confidentiality agreements. Just don't even bother.

Wonder Wheel, Thunderbolt, Skating Rink, B&B Carousel and Stop the Zombies 7D will all be open and free again on New Yera's eve.

El Dorado Bumper Cars will also be open, and the New York Aquarium will extend its hours to 9 p.m.

I'm stunned those attractions are free considering their usual ridiculously high prices.

Nice. It's looking unlikely that I'll be swinging by SFGADv when I'm out there at the end of the month, but a lap or two on Thunderbolt might work provided the place isn't mobbed (expecting it very well may be, though).

This is so I can post online and impress other people who are very good at procuring unfamiliar children in order to go on rides designed for children, and thus have a higher arbitrary number than me."

Now I know Eldorado Auto Skooter is still kickin' (and slammin', bumpin', and thumpin'), which is always a good update. Things have been precarious on and off for a while for those smaller amusement companies.

Shouldn't you be operating the ride instead of posting on TPR?? #AskingForAFriend

I can't imagine how many people will be crammed in there!

Are the El Dorado bumper cars anything special or are they just your ordinary bumper cars with a fancy facade? I've always passed them and been intrigued.

^They're not Lusses, despite the Auto Skooter moniker, but are fairly hard-hitting (and also fun to whiz around in like go-karts). The attraction is best known for its thumping nightclub atmosphere (people routinely mistake the building for such) and its quirky, enthusiastic staff (jumping onto moving cars, etc.).

Too many. Way too many. According to the Luna Park page, although the rides are open from 6 to 12 on NYE, they will be cutting off the lines at 9:30 PM. Ehhhh... I'll pass. :lol:

In the meantime, they also announced their opening date for next season, which will be Saturday, March 24th, 2018. Pretty sure I'll be in Doswell, VA on that date though. ;)
