    Can I park my donkey here?
  • Birthday 08/31/1974
  1. The same process (IPads - taking photos, no scanners) is in full effect at SFOT. Most likely will be rolled out to all the parks, if I had to guess.
  2. That is exactly where it is. I am surprised at the location as well. At one point it was 95% going where the Caddo Lake Barge is. The CLB was supposed to be sent to Frontier City but after the major flooding at the park damaged the CLB along with the Cheesesteak place and Yosemite Sam's a decision was made to put it in Spain with a new name. There were maintenance workers cycling the CLB yesterday, so not sure if or when it is going reopen. The Cheesesteak place has been reopened already. It is pretty good and a nice change from the usual park offerings, IMHO.
  3. We stopped by SFOT for awhile today. I won't bore anyone with a trip full trip report, but a few observations. NTG and Titan both down to one train operations. Signs up at each saying that this is due to scheduled maintenance. Good look to anyone going during the rest of spring break, especially once it warms up. Riddler is open and running, although there is some talk about it not running as well as it has in the past. A few folks are saying that it is not reaching quite a high on the swings as before. I rode it and I really didn't notice a difference myself but I have only been on i
  4. It was at the epic waters event. I was not there, however I did see the stream of the announcements, not just for SFOT but all of the area parks.
  5. The news about Yosemite Sam came directly from the park during an ACE event in Arlington, last month. I was kind of surprised to hear that, due to the extensive damage, but I am happy that they will be repairing it. I will be at the park next weekend and see if there is any work being done.
  6. We were at Fiesta last weekend and the kids rode Hustler. It was taken apart this week. Whirligig Is being re-themed as D.C. Supervillans. I guess to fit better with the D.C. Universe theme instead of just Gotham City.
  7. In addition to the items in the previous post of all the changes and upgrades at Fiesta. The All-American Nacho stand will be converted to Aztek Nachos The games area near Superman will be re-painted and updated with the DC Universe update Hustler, which was taken down this past week is getting a total refurbishment and should reopen within a month or so. Lots of exciting things at SFFT. Really looking forward to the re-theming and riding Joker. I enjoy the Riddler at SFOT and excited to ride a bigger version.
  8. Some news from the ACE Winterfest event in Arlington. According to the park; - Yosemite Sam's Gold River Adventure will be opening back up, at some point. The timeframe was not given. - The Oil Derrick will be re-opening this year, as well - The park announced "Splash! Water Parade" that will take place a couple times a day during July and August - There will be nanocoasters for both New Texas Giant and Titan. Also a Coasting for Kids event will take place at some point this season. Date was not given.
  9. Not sure about an Uber from Downtown. Certainly doesn't seem like it should be an issue. I do know there is a drop off lane at the front of the park. Almost everything will be open. There aren't any areas that are closed off. Most of the rides are operating. The only exceptions I am aware of are Yosemite Sam (due to flooding), The Oil Derrick (closed most of the year), Caddo Lake Barge and of course the water rides. I also don't know if Riddler is back up. It seems to have been down a lot this fall/winter. Heard a rumor it was waiting for a part but haven't stopped by since 11/18. Enjo
  10. Hopefully 2019 will be (hopefully) a big year for us. We have a couple large trips tentatively planned and a few smaller ones. A lot of new parks for us. * = new park SFOT (home park) SFFT ZDT Sea World San Antonio Kemah Boardwalk * Galveston Pleasure Pier * Silver Dollar City Worlds of Fun * Frontier City * May/June Trip Dollywood * Carowinds * Busch Gardens Williamsburg * Kings Dominion * Dorney Park * Hersheypark * Kennywood August Trip Kings Island Holiday World * Kentucky Kingdom * Cedar Point Beech Bend *
  11. For anyone that is heading out to Fiesta, Road Runner Express is finally back open. It had been down for at least 3 months waiting on a lift chain, is what I heard. Missed it my last 2 times down to SA so looking forward to riding it in August. Also the carousel opened in it's new location a few days ago. Can't wait to check that out as well!
  12. Riddler has been down since at least July 1st. While we were there we saw maintenance working near the top of the ride.
  13. Jack Rabbit at Kennywood. Rode it for the first time this year.
  14. On the way back to Texas, we figured we would hit a couple of Six Flags parks that we had not been to yet. First stop was; Six Flags Great America - Since my photos from here on out were lost, I will just hit on a few observations and review the rides we were able to experience. The park was a lot busier than I expected it to be on a non-holiday Monday. I couldn’t believe how many large groups of teenagers were in the park. I went in knowing that to get everything ridden I may have to break down and get a Flash Pass, which I eventually did later in the afternoon. The park also was
