    Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?
  1. If it stays on course, the more easterly landfall puts Galveston on the clean side of the storm with wind, rain, and storm surge way below what they saw with Ike. They may dodge a bullet on this one.
  2. I don't have an answer on that, but if crowds stay as light as they've started out and the inevitable late summer heat slows things down further, I don't know that I would let them doing ^that^ scare you away.
  3. Good stuff. I love finding someone else that doesn't loathe Rip Ride Rockit.
  4. The SA Zoo opened to the public on June 1. I’ve heard June 15 for SFOT but I’m not sure if FT will open before or after that.
  5. I love Luke's. I don't remember what they call it, but we had the $40 feast where you get a ton of food on our last trip. Best meal I had in the city. The memorial and museum really are something everyone should take the time to see. The inner chamber of the memorial exhibition inside the museum is incredible. We stayed in there for over an hour.
  6. Every indication has been in Texas that mass gathering places like movie theaters, sporting events, and amusement parks will be among the last businesses to open and, even when they do, it will be with a drastically altered operation.
  7. I could care less if they ever fix it. I rode EE a half a dozen times before I even knew there was something that it had done at one time and wasn't doing anymore. It's easily my favorite ride at AK and probably one of my 3 favorite rides at the resort.
  8. I've been led to believe the Yeti fix is a "months" project, not weeks and, since it would likely involve a contractor, it's not an on-the-fly, do-it-just-because-we're closed kind of job like disinfecting the trains or pressure washing a sidewalk.
  9. I've always heard that the Yeti fix is cost prohibitive unless they take the ride down for a planned, extended refurbishment. I would assume that right now wouldn't work for that given that no one knows how long (or short) this shutdown will last.
  10. Blog Mickey posted aerial photos of the parks this morning and that looks like a cropped/zoomed version of one of theirs.
  11. I strongly suspect that the capacity on this will be through the roof. The movie ride could chew through a line pretty fast and this looks to be even better. We rode the movie ride on the second to last day with a good portion of the line outside of the building and still got on in around 45 minutes.
  12. You obviously haven't been to Waco since the emergence of the Fixer Upper craze and the opening of the Magnolia Silos. It's already a tourist trap.
  13. It's worth every penny, even with a crowd. It's far and away the best atmosphere I've every experienced in a park.
  14. I would expect the closed rides to vary between now and spring break. From my experience working at the park, very few rides were rehabbed for the entire 8 weeks of the off season. Some were done in a matter of a couple of weeks. Of course I don't know exactly how extensive the current rehab is, but it's entirely possible that those 3 rides are back in operation in a couple of weeks and a different set of rides is down. I did hear that the Oil Derrick was open all weekend and it is normally fairly seasonal. They've had pretty bad weather luck thus far into year round operation with chi
  15. There are some a couple of pages back in this thread and SFOT Source had some over the weekend. There's really not much to see other than dirt turning and a few footers.
