I think the race will not make much difference since it is calling for rain Saturday. Can not remember if it is a night race or not.


The race is Saturday night. That might make Saturday be the better bet as everyone will be outta there that night and leave almost 100,000 people to contemplate stopping at the park Sunday.......

The Swings are still in Kidsville and running this morning. Besides the on and off rain showers not bad of a day for almost walk on rides. Dominator was a little busy this morning but was a walk on by 5pm. Anaconda was the same all day long And I305 was walk on at 11:00 and 4:00 to day. 305 was a bit of a stinger when the rain fell and doing 93 mph but for the most part me and the Step son had a blast on it. Did find out for sure that Shockwave is out of my coaster list now. My Shoulders are to wide for me to get in the restraints but no biggie I was riding this coaster back when it was new till a few years ago so had my far share of trips on it.
Did find out why Rebel Yell is only running 1 side right now there re tracking the side closest to the Farris wheel. Hope to see it back up and running by summer.

Windseeker was running good today even though I did not ride it or get to see the lights on it . Drop Tower running when rain let up or there was people on it. I do remember someone saying the Pizza was better this year and I have to agree it is better but Stouffer out of a box isn't the greatest but did fill a hollow spot. We stayed till after 5 by then the girls where cold 1 had lost her voice and I was getting pian waves in my left knee. ( Damn old age syndrome ) Got a few pic's to throw up later on after resizing ....

Thanks for the update. Glad to hear I wasn't hallucinating Swing-A-Round and it's still there. I'm quite jealous of the walk-ons today.
