    I just swallowed a whole donkey!
  1. I believe that all the elevator has left to be considered done is the little theming structure on the top of it. And I must say, SDC certainly did a good job at making everything look like its been there for decades! The rockwork looked good on its own, but the moss and extra paint/stain details adds so much.
  2. Yeah, that's just what I figured out. I still find it odd that they wouldn't specify what is what more directly, but after reading what their website says, it's starting to make more sense. I'm certainly not expecting anything luxurious (duh, its Mt. Olympus after all), but after looking at some photos and room tour vids on youtube, It doesn't seem to be as downright sketchy as the other buildings. It still has some mixed reviews like the other properties, but the newer reviews seem to be notably more positive than older ones.
  3. I've heard chatter that the ride will be located where the figure 8 on Dragon used to be and then connect roughly where the games are by Tornado, leaving the rest of Dragon's plot and station to be used for something else in the future. I mean, it makes sense as that's the only area that has seen any demolition or land work. I don't imagine they'd reuse Dragon's station for a free spin as the modifications they'd have to make would make it more worthwhile to just start from scratch. I mean, you'd have to setup entry and exit points on both sides of the station, completely redo the queue ramps
  4. So, maybe some people can help with this. I'm looking at visiting sometime in July, so I'm looking into booking our stay right now. I've read many reviews and experiences from people who have said that staying in Hotel Rome will be your best shot at getting a decent room that doesn't run the risk of being run down, dirty, or have bed bugs. But, maybe I'm missing something, how can you tell what property your reserving a room for? Do we even get a choice? Their website does make it sound like Hotel Rome is completely separate from the rest of their properties in the area, but looking at their r
  5. I will say this, that did not offer as enjoyable of a ride as the Huss versions. Out of the 3 days i visited Adventureland, it was only open for half of a day. Not only that, but it seemed to break down about every other cycle with many break downs occuring mid-cycle. So I'm sure unreliability and maintenance issues played a big role in it's removal (much like dragon). So I'm not too upset about its removal seeing that this gives them an opportunity to replace it with a better flat.
  6. I gotta give it to Worlds of Fun, they went from having practically no social media or PR presence to being some of the best in the industry. Their PR team is excellent. Having met some of them and knowing a few personally, they all have a great sense of humor and personality for this kind of stuff.
  7. I'm extremely skeptical of them opening anytime before May seeing how the virus sitation isnt anywhere near peaking. Though, if the region is relatively stable virus situation wise, then who knows, they may take the risk. I haven't heard much about COVID-19 in OKC.
  8. OMG, all of you are acting like this isn't a Six Flags. I mean, you're not wrong. But i do feel Six Flags has taken a step in the better direction regarding stuff like that, at least a little bit. In all the SF parks I visited last year, i never experienced any unnecessary downtime. I also saw many rides running on maximum capacity and were staffed with employees who tried their best to dispatch quickly, and when grouping, filling in all seats. No, I'll say it for you "dude it was just a joke why'd you take it so serious"
  9. I'm not terribly concerned about capacity considering how the ride operates. Not only with the ride being fairly short, Mack uses an automated restraint checking system which is used on Pulsar and Time Traveler which will allow them to check all restraints at the same time with just a push of a button. I've seen videos online of Pulsar loading and dispatching a single vehicle in roughly 30-45 seconds. So if Six Flags does a decent job with grouping and filling all seats on the ride, the capacity shouldn't be terrible. Not great, but not terrible.
  10. It's odd that it's being added to a waterpark. Though, it doesnt appear to be the first dry ride they've added with the go-karts located nearby. Though, it's nice to see a raptor built at a size of park that they were originally marketed for. It's also worth mentioning that they intend to open it this year, unless i read something wrong.
  11. That is a movement i could get behind Just seeing these photos, it makes the scale of this thing a whole lot more noticeable! I knew it was a big ride, but seeing how it is physically fitting in the park now makes it seem even more massive. I am wondering, will this ride have a water filtration / cleaning system or are they just gonna let the water turn into liquid death like they did with the old aquaman? What you don't like pink eye? Nah, i prefer to get ebola from my water rides

  13. I find it interesting how many of the buildings in this area are sporting aluminum siding. Kinda plain as it is, but im sure they're probably gonna get painted with some more details as the project progresses closer to opening. But, the rockwork around the ride looks stellar already. Im sure it will look even more incredible with water flowing through it!
  14. I'm absolute stoked to see Patriot getting a fresh coat of paint! The paint wasn't in horrible condition as it wasn't chipped or covered in grease and rust, just faded. So I'm a little surprised to see this happening. It's also worth mentioning that the little white stripe is being painted as well. It would be a shame to lose that awesome little detail. Well, I'm glad to see that they're putting in the effort to greet guests with something that looks fresh and revitalized (as they have been doing in other parts of the park in the last 5 years or so). I wonder if they're looking at painting oth
  15. I'm not gonna hold my breath for anything to take up that area in the near future. I visited Dino's alive once this season and it was in a horrible state with most animatronics not working. I feel that they're closing it just to have one less maintenance worry. It's just one less thing to spend money on. I'm sure they weren't making much from it anyways as i rarely saw anyone walking around in there especially after they moved the entrance. One can hope whatever comes out of this is positive, but i'm certainly not going to expect anything.
