Went to the park for a bit today. Lex Luthor track looks to be on the tower, it looked like they were installing the brakes today (good thing).

Park was of course dead. I gave Revolution a courtesy ride and it wasn't that bad of a ride actually. Not great, but not the worst I had.

The two most interesting things that happened were:

Wonder if this was just coincidence?

And apparently IOA is a sponsor now. ;)

I'm surprised they're not holding hands and skipping to the park entrance.

I'm wondering that the Log Jammer replacement's construction should start soon as they removed the ride quickly. I'm thinking once Lex Luthor is finished, they'll move to this project.

^^ I'll put up some pics of the completed track tomorrow. You honestly can't really even tell. Blends in quite nicely.

Yeah, we got there around 2pm and walked by and it was open. We did a lap around the park and came back and got a whip. The strawberry flavor is not on the menu but he asked if we wanted pineapple, mango or strawberry. They give you a good amount for the price.

As for the DOD track, you can hardly tell its there. They did a really good job at not making it so bulky, its really blends in with the tower.

Seems the Orient Express received a new audio spiel. Very interesting if you ask me, okay maybe not.

^ Sounds normal to me - I heard it last week. The one thing that caught my attention was the 'Spring' opening of the drop tower :lol:


Regardless, it sounds better than that Allison chick who just wanted to talk about donuts. Annoying. :roll:
