I believe this is the final weekend of El Toro and Kingda Ka. The only thing I've heard closed in November in the past has sometimes been the area back by Bizarro.

We were there last weekend and the only thing closed back there was Log Flume (though KK was down due to wind).

It won't get blocked off until HitP officially starts.

Awesome! A few things of note after looking through it:

- Cyborg is obviously going to operate
- The area near the Parachute Tower will no longer feature the big tree or be called "Treetop Summit". It will now be called "Deck the Halls" and the Parachute Drop will operate. It sounds like the new area will feature some of those huge walk-through ornaments like the one in New England.
- Merry Goats seems to be moving
- Holiday Spirits is the best name for a bar ever (It's probably going to be basically unchanged from Yuletide Brews otherwise)
- Holiday Craze Mirror Maze is a new upcharge
- Joy to the World will move back near the Skyway
- "Wonder" looks kind of cool and for the first time I almost want to watch the show in Adventure Theater. It's bound to be cheesy but I'm sort of okay with that.
- "Holiday Feast" will replace Panda Express. I think everyone knows my thoughts on that. :lol:

Oh wow, I never paid attention to how much they keep open for HITP, I always just assumed it was a lot more scaled back compared to that. I've contemplated going as I'll be up in NY around Christmas for a couple of days, but I'd rather just read Bill's TR talking about riding Nitro in the 20 degree weather and then go ride Mako 10 minutes away.

If they ran El Toro, I'd maybe think about subjecting myself to riding it in the arctic blast that I don't understand how you guys put up with every year. But that clearly will never happen.

Is Nitro the largest roller coaster in the country (at a seasonal park) that runs during a winter event? I'm having a hard time thinking of a bigger coaster.

It was posted on GA History that the flames have been removed from El Diablo. Maybe the rumors of it getting sent to La Ronde are true.

Technically SFOT is seasonal, right? If Titan runs, it beats it in height. Loses in ride quality though.

The early rumor for 2020 is that Six Flags Great Adventure may be preparing to work with RMC… but don’t worry, they wont be touching El Toro. Instead they are said to be looking to take up some of the old Rolling Thunder space near El Toro to build a custom new RMC coaster creation. It may actually even interact with El Toro and just might even reuse that small section of Rolling Thunder supports that they left up that passes through El Toro. One possible idea was to even give it name inspired by Rolling Thunder and possibly call it Twisted Thunder. Given the location involved, this could also explain the sudden removal rumor for El Diablo.
Everything is a long way out at this point however, and always subject to change, so stay tuned.

Screamscape needs an intervention. I'm starting to worry about their mental well-being. :lol:
