^^ Well to be fair, SFHH was a Mystic Lake before it was SFHH ... so there was something in between the two. ;)

Tornado on the other hand is a Parking Lot slide.

^ Ummm... all right. I swear though... if they get more than we got at WCB(in terms of ERT/perks because I feel that most of the general public don't really care about a park Q&A) I am going to be even more disappointied at Six Flags.

I typed in the promo code and the event is $50. I'm already disappointed seeing the perks are almost the same as WCB.

^ The tickets are $49. Isn't that A.C.E. day? I know that's a bad word on this site. This is quite a slap in the face for us TPR folks!!

I would have loved to have been able to attend WCB. I've always had an awesome time with the TPR gang, but it just wasn't to be this year due to some health issues I was dealing with. It was the first year that I'd missed WCB in, I think, 4 or 5 years now. I am now seriously considering this other event. I don't expect it to be the same as WCB, but I would expect it to at least be better than a "normal" day in the park. If somehow the event is better than WCB was, and I have seen the reports saying WCB at SFMM was a little "off" this year, then I'd take it as the park possibly trying to rectify the situation by providing enthusiasts another opportunity to visit when they're better equipped to show the guests a better time. I don't know if this event will end up working out for me, or not, but I am glad that there's at least the opportunity.

We knew about this 'Enthusiast Day' long ago, we chose not to be part of it and to do our own event, exclusive, for our own members. It's basically the same event as ours, but marketed to the General Public and that other group. Trust me, it will not have the same 'feel' as WCB. If they want to treat this other random assortment of people better, it will just show all of us what the park is really thinking and we can focus more on other parks next year. Again, should I bring up the Knott's day? =) I have two gut feelings about this 'Enthusiast Day':

1. No one shows up, the park learns it's lesson and this event either doesn't exist next year or they tone it WAY down.

2. They market it enough so that tons of GP show up and it's not really a true 'enthusiast day'.

Either way, WCB lives on! :lol:

Nuthin' better than a naked donkey!

Don't most parks have multiple "events" days? Knotts is having "Winter Coaster Solace" the very next day, March 18th.

Once again, as long as they don't compare to WCB (which they won't), who cares?
