  1. Yea! I totally blanked on that name. IDK if it was open today, but it definitely was open when I was at the park this past Thursday. I didn't ride it, however.
  2. I would wager on something "small but mighty" in way of "new things" -- Honestly, short of multi-million coaster additions, SFOT has a solid line-up of stuff, IMO. Maybe a refresh of the Loony Toons ride whose name I can't remember...maybe something new in the old Batman Stunt Show/haunt theater? On the other hand, i wouldn't be surprised if a clone of SFFT's B:TR makes its way to Arlington.
  3. Gotta say, while I did get a "6" score, and am pretty sure what screen I got it on, I really have no idea what easter egg I hit. Guess it goes to show I'm not much of a Justice League nerd lol
  4. I can't speak for what parts of the layout are in the original space vs the add-on, but the full ride (at least everywhere I noticed) has a dark "acoustic tile" drop ceiling, but you really don't notice unless you specifically look for it. I saw your question and rode the ride 2 more times before I remembered to look during the ride. (Single rider is super-fast on this attraction, since each car has 2 rows of 3 people)
  5. Park is pretty quiet today. Just some school groups mainly. After my recent trip to CP, the ops here make me sad lol. That being said, they're not terrible. Just. Meh. Titan and the Go Carts are both down for the day. I presume Titan's tunnel hasn't finished draining. The cart track for sure is still slighly flooded. Everything else seems to be going as normal. The go carts weren't even in the station...I'm curious where they store them. Wouldn't it be fun to drive the go carts through the park?! The go cart track is still draining. This pic was taken after ShockWave was fully stopped and stacked. The creek is still flowing over the access road to the back of the amphitheater.
  6. Maverick had to evacuate at about 6PM on Tuesday evening, bet it's the same issue, whatever it is. On that note, what is it about Maveric that makes it especially sensitive?
  7. Fwiw, TTD is back up and running. Bout to get my first ever ride on it! Stoked!
  8. Lol I was updating my siggy for the first time in years earlier tonight and figured I may as well put CP in since I'll be there in a week, and likely won't update my profile for ages again.
  9. Hey gang! Back again! Outside of coasters (obviously) and most of the other big rides, are there are things that are can't miss opportunities? (an obscure small ride, or an especially tasty snack unique to the park?) TIA
  10. Sorry for resurrecting an old thread, but it seemed more sensible than re-hashing the information discussed above... So my husband and I are planning to go to Japan in July for roughly 10 days, with 4-5 of them dedicated to TDL/TDS. (2 of the days would be arrival/departure days) 1. Is there a significant advantage or reason to stay with an official Disney resort property as opposed to the aforementioned Hilton Tokyo Bay? 2. If we have 2 days to spend on each park, do we need to really worry about a "gameplan" or have to rush for fastpasses anywhere? 3. Not knowing much about Tokyo/Japan personally (the husband is the fanboy for the region, I'm the fanboy for the parks), what are some non-Disney touristy things you might recommend? (Theme park or otherwise?) 4. I thought about Fugi-Q but it seems like it's too much stress to subject my only moderately coaster-enthusiast husband to...but are there some other parks that might be a "can't miss" opportunity? 5. Are there any specific restaurants (Especially if they're hidden in the resorts) that are highly recommended? Thanks in advance!!
  11. I suppose the health initiative make sense, if only they would designate walking paths with people so that they wouldn't get squished. I almost ran over several people who were walking right down the middle of the road rather than crossing it, and they were angry at me for driving 5 miles an hour. Apparently even that is too fast LOL Add to the crowds, I actually basically gave up before I even really got started, as I really was only really wanting to ride Judge Roy to see how the retracting went. Obviously I try and squeeze in a ride with the Giant, and Titan. Considering that I accidentally left my pass at home, I spent an hour or so in line with guest relations to get a new one, and then when I got to the full Plaza, I was like screw this. I can come back another day LOL.
  12. Holy Moses the park is hella crowded today. So many school groups and what not. The entire entry plaza is full and the park has been open for an hour. They also have the 2ndary entrance under bobsled open as well. Oddly though, even despite how busy the park is, they do not have the parking lot shuttles running.
  13. At the park today. They have RRE listed on the "closed ride" sign at the front. It's a cloudy semi dreary day. Minimal crowds. Anyone else coming to the park? I wonder what the threshold is between the cold and warm ride programs for Iron Rattler. EDIT: Observations: they added lights to the IRAT tunnel and the bottom of the Skyscreamer chairs. (Or have I not noticed them before?)
  14. Hey guys! some friends and I are traveling to CP for the first time in May. We're staying at Hotel Breakers, and will be arriving on Sunday, leaving Wednesday, leaving us Sunday afternoon, and all day Monday and Tuesday at the park. Correct me if I'm wrong, but what with the early entry from staying on-property and all, this should be plenty of time to ride everything without worrying about fastlane, yes?
  15. There's nothing except a good view on top the derreck. It's JUST a viewing platform. Cool view none the less. La Vibora is one of my favorites, personally. It's a bobsled ride...I'd recommend watching a POV online to decide if you like. It's a bit rough with the brakes, and ops are slow there. The line generally gets long in the afternoon, so I'd hit it early or really late if you go for it. It does have a single rider line that makes it easier if you want to do that. The train ride is pretty cool, just a standard "go around the perimeter of the park" kind of thing. I've not really seen any of the shows...
  16. It'll be pretty warm in June, so you'll enjoy Yosimite Sam's for the A/C if nothing else. Sky Screamer is a lot of fun, but line moves SLOW usually. I like Runaway Mountain, but it's overrated by visitors, and ops on that ride are usually pretty slow. If you see a line sticking out from outside the front of the ride, it's going to be at least a 30 min wait. I'd prioritize it below New Texas Giant, Titan, Mr. Freeze, and Shockwave.
  17. I'm sure it will be, it's just supposed to be cold as balls. I've decided not to go down, as it's about half the rides that doesn't start to run until it's not below 60 it seems.
  18. Anyone planning to go to the park tomorrow? If so, hit me up, I'll be there!
  19. From Fiesta Texas' Twitter: "Just announced! The addition of Soaring Eagle Zipline to our park later this spring!" https://twitter.com/SF_FiestaTexas/status/566361067174248449/photo/1 EDIT to add: Link to SFFT's Facebook video of Batman POV
  20. Steampunk it is. Good call on whoever it was that noticed the steampunk logo on the cover.
  21. She didn't say anything until the red train pulled up, emptied, and the gates opened. She balked at that moment. I wouldn't be surprised if the ops really even noticed the situation until they were doing restraint checks. It just bugs me that her ride partner (who was trying to convince her to get on) didn't invite the party behind them to skip. *shrug* people be crazy
  22. Red train has been back in action since late September. Black train has disappeared to the maintenance place, I assume. We rode red train last time we were there. It was when red train appeared that they shortened the trains. Not sure if just a coincidence or not. Last time I was at the park (in October) the red train was in action. In fact, there was a lady who refused to ride it, when it came up to her turn. Superstitious, it appeared. So, in typical SixFlags efficiency, instead of the people behind that couple hopping in, they ran the train with that row empty. (the line was about an hour or so, maybe towards 90 minutes)
  23. 5-car trains didn't affect anything when I was there. Also, have had just as much fun riding in the Winter
  24. I was just watching the videos coming out of the Frozen elements that were added to the Christmas parade...Does anyone recognize whether or not Olaf and Kristoff's floats are repurposed from something else, or if they are (presumably) new builds?
  25. Gotta say, I really enjoyed it! I wasn't sure what to expect, but this definitely exceeded whatever it was that I wasn't expecting. Now if only Olaf "talked" hehe I especially got a kick out of how at about 5:00 in, they reproduce the trademark twirl that she does. Although she does seem to get a little...burlesque with her mannerisms for a minute right after that, hehe
