  1. I think that light has always been there. Someone probably just forgot to turn it off.
  2. Sharon Parker was announced as the new GM/park president about a month ago. She's done marketing and PR for the park for several years. I've heard there was someone else in the GM role between her and Ron McKenzie that was also an internal promotion, but that didn't last longer than a few weeks for one reason or another.
  3. I'm just fine being proven wrong, but I bet some people are going to be pretty disappointed if the theme is way more pirate than speelunker. That said, it looks incredible either way given the teases we've seen.
  4. I was there a week ago and I can't recommend springing for Genie/Lightning Lane or whatever the extras are called enough. I didn't do the planning or setting up, so I'm not entirely sure exactly what we used but it worked out well. The only things we missed out on were the ones we just had to skip. I have similar feelings about Rise of the Resistance. I would call it an "experience" not just a ride. Totally blew me away, even on my second ride last week. Smugglers Run gets a little overlooked, but I like it almost as much as Rise. I've stayed at Pop Century a few times, including last week. Being able to use the Skyliner to access Epcot and Studios is a game changer. It made taking the bus to AK and MK feel like a total beating.
  5. https://www.wfaa.com/article/news/local/four-people-taken-to-hospital-smoke-ride-building-six-flags/287-f3506087-1c99-4fad-a115-0dfc94b22857 Being reported as an electrical malfunction in a motor that cause the building to fill with smoke. 4 people taken to the hospital.
  6. Did anyone really expect it to be floating in the air like in the renderings? I think they'll theme it up in a way that hides or blends the supports.
  7. I know plenty of people that have visited during that time of the year and enjoyed it. You have to govern your expectations and it sounds like you're already doing that. If you're looking to save travel time and you're not worried about money, stay at the resorts closest to Magic Kingdom, Epcot, or Studios. Same goes for the virtual queue options: spend the money if you have it.
  8. Manufacturers like Carousel Works and Chance started marketing "conservation" and "endangered species" carousels to zoos several years ago.
  9. It's been running very slow for me since the software was changed over or updated (not sure when that was, but seems like several months) and I just assumed it was because I usually read the forum on my ancient work desktop with Edge. It's lightning fast now.
  10. Directly from the Disney parks blog article posted before this debate ensued: "The Space 220 restaurant is located adjacent to the Mission: SPACE attraction, and takes fine dining to a whole new level. Your immersive experience begins as you check in to the Space 220 Departure Lounge in Future World. From here, you’ll board one of two “Space Elevators” that will transport you in what seems like 220 miles above Earth to Centauri Space Station." That phrase is worded awkward as hell, but there lies the answer.
  11. The guy that's running the park used to be the Ops manager at SFOT.
  12. The Fiesta Train remnants and the old "Indian" village along the train track were both removed and the Indian Village gift shop in the Mexico section was recently renamed "Buffalo Trading Post". No one knows why, but it hasn't stopped members of various Facebook groups from absolutely losing their sh*t and declaring this the ultimate end of the park. Just like when they changed the six flags or when DC characters were introduced or when odd characters on the cave ride were switch for Looney Tunes characters or when they stopped having fake Confederate soldiers march around the park or when Angus Wynne sold the park he never intended to keep...have I missed anything?
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Good stuff. I love finding someone else that doesn't loathe Rip Ride Rockit.
