  1. They were assigning seats when I was there but if you asked nicely they will try to put you where you want. If anything say you will wait for the next train. It did look like if there are too many people waiting for the front the will tell you no but both times I asked for the back they let me in row 11 and 10 when they were still filling up the front of the train. Wouldn't let a single rider in the last row though
  2. And here people were worried about all their season pass privileges being taken away. I could of sworn I read somewhere May 11th would be a day as well? Anyone that can confirm? May 11th is going to be a VIP preview night from 7-10 PM for coaster clubs. I know ACE and Texas Thrill Seakers were both allowed 100 spots (I'm signed up with ACE).
  3. Back at the park today for the last day of my vacation. LR is currently running 2 trains but they have rows 8 and 9 closed off for both trains. Not sure why.
  4. Come on you know we need all the details. How many trains? Exactly how long has it been running? Has it broken down yet? How long is the line? Just kidding of course... I'm glad to hear it's running, even though I'm not there to ride it. I guess we might have to make a return trip to the park to get on this damn ride. Have fun! 2PM here now... Still running! 2 trains are going... The 2nd train stacks almost every time but it only waits a minute or 2. I'd say 3-4 minute dispatches. 3 rides so far. Front twice and back once. The pacing of the ride is just awesome. The quad-down provides a lot of airtime. IMO, I 'd place it 2nd among RMC's, nicely between NTAG and Outlaw Run.
  5. Lightning Rod is open today! Waiting in line now for my 2nd ride. Still not sure where to rank it besides saying it's up there. Great ride!
  6. I am currently here at MM and they are only running 2 trains on Tatsu but X2 is running 2 trains and they are dispatching one train before the other hits the breaks. Superman is currently closed.
  7. Does anyone know how packed the park will be this Sunday since it's Memorial Day weekend? I'm flying into town this weekend and have a free day on Sunday. Trying to figure out the best plan to get everything in and wondering if the Flash Pass is worth it. Thanks for any info!
  8. Being a fellow Houstonian, this caught me completely off guard. Opening May, 2016 TYPHOON TEXAS Press Release: A little snippet from Chron.com, The Houston area newspaper, stating WhiteWater West to be the designer of the park. http://www.chron.com/neighborhood/katy/news/article/Katy-to-open-next-large-water-park-dubbed-6456224.php Aerial View of the park. Birds Eye View from the Multi-lane racer. Wave pool and Mult-Slide Tube Complex. Lazy river, Kids complex, and The Family Tower. Kid Park with Drop Pod Tower in the Back. Full view of the entire right side. This will be a great addition to the Houston area since it will service a completely different niche than Wet'n'Wild SplashTown. I can't wait to be there for opening day, MAY 2016! Edit: http://http://typhoontexas.com/
  9. Well then, this is interesting. "The first phase of the theme park will span 71 acres and will offer one wooden rollercoaster engineered by the same company that produced the Twisted Colossus at Six Flags Magic Mountain in California, Galland said." http://impactnews.com/houston-metro/tomball-magnolia/grand-texas-developer-reveals-updated-theme-park-plans/ If this is true, I don't care if they wait until 2020, this will be awesome! Sorry I'm on my mobile.
  10. Their Facebook states "We will have a public announcement in February with updates and information." I'm sure its going to say "HERE YE HERE YE, MCDONALDS AND STARBUCKS HAVE BEEN CHOSEN AS TWO FASTFOOD LOCATIONS OUTSIDE THE PARK." and that is it... In truth I'm going to guess everything gets delayed again but they might give us a layout for the water park. Oh well, at least there will be some news. Glass in half full, well 1/4, but progress guys, its progress.
  11. Are you willing to take a week long road trip and break the drive up into manageable segments? I drove from Houston to Great Adventure and it took about 24 hours total, stopped in North Carolina for the night but it's a long drive. If your kids can handle it, I'd say go, but you may want to have it broken up into shorter drives.
  12. No, I wasn't saying I wanted Shockwave to be torn out. I'm just speculating. I would either assume turning the trains around to go backwards. (Is that possible) or the go-carts are getting torn out. I highly doubt anything would occur to Shockwave as they just spent some $ fixing it because of the accident last year that had it down for several months. Also, please don't put it backwards! Am I the only person who doesn't like the trains in reverse? Only Mr. Freeze should be reversed. When it pushes you up its tower and all you want to do is fall forward, thats amazing.
  13. Just throwing my 2 cent's in. Why do we even think it would be an S&S roller coaster? If anything wouldn't it be Gerstlauer? Six Flags and Gerstlauer are buddies? Something like Dare Devil Dive would be awesome.
  14. Since no one has done this park: GRAND TEXAS 2015: Show Progress, inform us what the supposed 5 rides are. Wish List: Premier Launch like Mr. Freeze, Arrow Dynamics mine train, B&M Floorless, RMC/Intiman Woodie, kiddie coaster. 2016: BUILD THE DAMN THING AND OPEN....It's already been pushed back a year. Just open please 2017: Just stay open, make money, make people happy 2018: Expand the water park/add flat ride 2019: Texas sized Hyper that breaks all records!!! Everything's bigger in Texas right? What i'd like to just occur. 2015: Build 2016: Stay Open 2017: Stay Open 2018: Stay Open 2019: Stay Open.... Shall I continue?
  15. Any pics? How far away from the bridge is it and does it look like it's a straight shot from the bridge? There's been talk of the bridge serving as a keyhole element, though I don't know how they'll cram the Time Machine through that tiny opening. Once again, not getting Time Machine That being said, First Wing Rider in Texas? I wonder if showing a map of were the Balloon has been could prove anything?
