  1. Well they're only retracking the end, everywhere up to the sweeping right hander is still old wood, unless they can do the whole thing by memorial day.
  2. That new entry sign might be the best addition to this park. (Well other than Moose on The Loose) Why didn't I buy the T Shirt.
  3. People are having serious trouble with Tantrums belt, they seemed easy to learn but I don't know how people still mess them up.
  4. Yeah the music thing was odd, but it was nice near the hotel path because it was dead quiet and you could hear every single ride doing it's thing. Also note now you can't hear the rides PA Systems from the other side of the park.
  5. What he said is pretty much it, if you know where to look there are differences. This opening day is no different than other Darien ones so I didn't expect much minus the website/app (That they are advertising in the park) my season pass stuff still worked on it so that's fine. Tantrum has different wheels or something because it's roaring and you can hear it through the park. Rolling Thunder operates in the rain now. Tantrum doesn't and I rode Ride of Steel in the drizzle. Predator's retracking is on the straightaway near the path, and the last turn (also reprofiled.) Vipers orange train is gone but blue train is hauling and the trims before the corkscrew arn't bringing you to a stop anymore. Mind Eraser is also hauling but the first half is still rough. I hated Boomerang but it's boomerang so. Motocoasters Flywheel was on like someone else mentioned but no one was in the operator booth. There were mechanics in RoS's transfer track area and the server room was open showing off all the computers running the ride. The food registers were down Saturday but fine today. I spent two days at the park and both were pretty good, I was impressed with Six Flags and the way they're treating the park. Also worth noting is they were testing new lights for Ignite the Night, the drinking fountains are literal fountains, and the real one is dyed blue.
  6. I noticed that too, I stepped weirdly on it a few times. Also the pavement by pirate sucks. Again it can be forgiven because of the crap weather we've had.
  7. Compared to last year's opening day this was 2x better. Minus blast off.
  8. I got to the park for celebrations, went to Viper and got a alone ride. Rode rolling Thunder and Mind Eraser. Rode RoS, it was running okay. Got a test saying my application went through and I can do my interview (I'm doing attractions yay) and just meandered around the park. Giant Wheel opened later on and so did Tantrum. Viper was running without trims and I broke a blood vessel in my eye. Skyscreamer looks massive from anywhere in the park.
  9. There was mention about everything being setup by the end of April, but again like you said it's Six Flags. We're just used to Premier getting crap done.
  10. Yep, even the app is still missing it. (I'm gonna be honest I never got the notification for that whole part of the discussion) I'm just wondering how the hell Frontier City set up.
  11. Yeah, and the whole having the site up by opening thing fell through as well.
  12. I tried to get it but it just downloads the 2018 one, usally the years map is out a week in advance.
  13. Man I must've explained myself like 3 times, and I agreed with Bill and you're still going on.
  14. Yeah you put it pretty well, I just really wanted to see because I've never seen one in real life and having one here is gonna be cool.
  15. It's a new ride, at our home park. How dare we get exited over it. Also I've never even *seen* one of these in person.
  16. ? We just wanna see what the guy claims was a topped off ride, I don't understand where the issue is...
  17. Fair enough, but I'd really like to see it with Blast Off and all the other taller rides. I'll take tons of pictures Saturday so no worries. Also it looks really nice with what I assume is SFA's RoS.
  18. Yeah but I think he means at this park so we can see how it looks in the skyline.
