  1. Pretty much anything in WDW, I love the pretzels in the Tomorrowland Lunching Pad and you can never go wrong with a Dole Whip either. I also loved Mythos at IOA. I Had a great meal when I went last summer and I like a lot of the food BGT has at its counter service places. Makes the all day dining deal they offer that much more worth it!

  2. I'm sure as the season goes on, operations will get better, just seems like this season it's taking longer for the park to get into the swing of things. The path that connected Kingda Ka to El Toro has made it more of a trek to get to KK and El Toro. I believe this path is closed since the tigers are no longer being displayed in the park. Hopefully operations will get better as the schools let out and the park can get staffing levels up to par.

     

    You can cut through Safari Discoveries to get to/from KK and El Toro. The original Temple of the Tiger entrance and the gift shop close to El Toro act as both entrances and exits.

  3. Rolling Thunder's Flashpass location has moved, it now merges with the line for the right track just before the staircase into the station.

     

    Did they reconfigure the queue? If the merge point is at the stairs, the Flashpass users could still have a 15 - 20 minute wait with the slow dispatches the ride always has. I guess that also means from now on the right side is going to be the side running on days when they only ride one side.

     

    No they didn't, Flashpass will have a bit of a longer wait in the station than they used to when the entrance was through the exit. For whatever reason most people were ignoring the right side and went directly to the left side when I went. Left had an almost full station and the right side was empty.

  4. Flashpass merges at the station for Nitro, Bizarro, El Toro, Batman, Superman, Kingda Ka and I think Green Lantern so you can pick your row. Dark Knight merges at the pre show, Skull Moutain uses car 5, Rolling Thunder also uses the middle rows and Runaway Mine Train has 1 row in the middle reserved for Flashpass.

     

    ^^^The pathway in the Golden Kingdom is closed

  5. gadv.com has some pictures of GL's theming. It looks like they have an airplane on a runway, and some cool signage. I can't wait to see what other kind of theming we'll get.

    Great to see the jet found it's way back into the park! I never actually saw Mach 1 Adventure but the theming for it looked pretty extensive, including the plane sitting in front of the hanger

  6. I'm not sure how many times I've been referred to as the "DJ" when sitting in the operator booth of my ride by guests on the train. Of course I'm not sending your train out or anything, I'm here to play the music. And by "play", I mean turn the station mute on or off and let the park loop flood my station. The rest of this control panel is completely for show. See, look at all the pretty lights blink!

  7. ^I can't really answer question 1, having never been to Magic Mountain but the way the Q-bot works is that your are allowed to reserve your next ride as soon as the current ride reservation has been completed. As soon as you scan your q-bot with the Flashpass team member your able to sort through the list and pick your next ride to reserve. Generally, most rides (at my park anyway) merge their Flashpass lines with the normal queue once you get into the station. During the time you're waiting for your time in the station you could already be virtually waiting in line for another ride.

  8. ^They're both red and blue and both of them have names starting with an "s." I can definitely see if, say its a person's first trip to the park, them becoming a bit confused, especially when they are lined up in almost a straight line from each other. Now if you get someone who has been to the park before saying that, then that's a comment for this thread.

     

    Since ya know, orange and red are the same color to the GP

  9. 2010 - Six Flags Great Adventure - Superman: Ultimate Flight/Kingda Ka Crew (also spent some time at Great American Scream Machine. I was part of the last day shift GASM crew ever!)
