  1. Overlooking the obvious. carrousel to sf stlouis to hold them over until they finish their refurb.
  2. Lagoon is great. Spend a whole day there. say hi to colossus the double looping dragon for me!
  3. It looks like they are building something to the left of vortex. Tore down the latte hut for it. probably not a coaster or parking garage. funny there is no signage, just a tarp covered fence. “Find out what’s coming when we are done.” I got a meal plan burger and walked around a bit to see lines everywhere and then left. Pretty much what i expected. Glad to be back but will pick a slower day to try to ride anything.
  4. Front row, lean forward? at opening day the parking lot is full to the parking booths any other day i would turn around a nd leave it looks like they painted leviathan!
  5. I guess they did the destructive testing while still in Mexico?
  6. Was Spirit known for “stacking” their planes, or one plane operations?
  7. Can you post a pic of the control panel? There seem to be a lot in this thread.
  8. The new CF slogan: we’re not happy until Bill is not happy.
  9. Assuming they are allowed to open mat 14 i am not sure if there is a pass holder preview day but either way i am just glad they found a way to be permitted to open. i am thinking i may buy a meal plan just to support them since i have already paid for my pass. at this point as much as i would love to ride some rollercoasters i would like to support them as they reopen.
  10. I was planning to go in april with the craft brewing conference which was since cancelled. i emailed the contact us on the website, and they promptly responded: Good Morning Doug, Your Platinum Pass will get you into Schlitterbahn. Parking is free here, please let me know if you have any further questions. They did not indicate any issues with showing your pass and coming in, like every other park in the chain. Since parking is free anyway, if you had any trouble you could surely speak to guest relations. Obviously with the post covid situation, it might be smart to email ahead of time.
  11. I was planning to be in san antonio mid april for the craft brewers conference which has since been cancelled. To take advantage of the christmas specials, I signed up for a six flags membership for fiesta texas thinking i would go 2 or 3 times and then drive to dallas and go to sfot before flying home. I figured i would come out ahead with a pass. If i got a chance to go to chicago montreal or darien lake this year it would be a bonus. It made sense at the time but it looks unlikely i will be able to go, or at least be unwise to. I understand that you need to go to your “home” park the first visit to activate your membership so i may wait for the dust to settle before i see what i can do. I live in toronto so it is not exactly easy to get there. Having time to think about it i may not try to cancel and keep paying for the membership to support 6 flags. They probably need the money and support right now. I Think of it as a hundred dollar donation towards keeping them afloat. I already have a CF platinum pass. Rather than be worried about asking for a refund if your park delays opening a month or maybe two, wait it out and go back when they open and even buy stuff to help them stay in business.
  12. I have been to the last several years passholder night. It is a fun atmosphere and everyone seems happy to be back at wonderland for another season. People are understanding that rides which have not run for 6 months have a bit of downtime. Many of the staff are new and not on their midseason form. Foodservice which is pretty bad on a good day is even slower with lots of things running out. On paper it is a textbook shitshow but people are thrilled to be back so it winds up being a nice night out.
  13. I also like back of the bus on Leviathan! Check out 4 th train second row on Behemoth. You get nice floater air over all of the hills, it is great! Back of bus is nice too especially for the turnaround. Same for Vortex. Since you seem to like Fury, how would you compare fury to Leviathan?
  14. ^wow, i learn new things daily. i am not sure i have been on guardian this year at all. I went on sunday for my last behemoth ERT of the year and last day to do splashworks... It was kinda cool and overcast with almost no lines, if you kept walking up to each slide, you stayed warm. Considering the weather, there was a surprising number of people there. I went on Klockwerks and noticed that the swinging time seemed much less and that it took a long long time to slow down. i don't know if there is a braking mechanism to stop it that was not working, but it was strange. Among other things, we rode Wilde Beast and something was badly wrong. I know people complain about it and minebuster, but after the new track they had installed in the last few years, parts were getting better. Sunday when we rode, it seemed to shake violently laterally from the first drop on. My wife banged her head on my shoulder several times. I don't know if this was a problem with the train (blue one) or the track, but it was much worse than usual. Anybody know anything about this?
  15. ^^ The park opens it's gates 30 min before opening time. They will let you go through security and walk around the fountain area. They have rope drop points to all the areas, and if you go to the left of the mountain, there is a rope drop down the hill near yukon. When i went with guests, we went to that and had a short line to yukon. I went to the single rider line and managed to get on the second train of the day, as it did not occur to any rope drop people to go for the single rider. They will let you use your bonus fl pass whenever you want. On the day you want to use it go to the booth to the left of the main gates to redeem it (outside of the park entrance). They scan your bar code and check your account and give you your pass. Guardian is worth doing, at least once, pick a time when there is not much of a line. The lineup is inside the mountain and you can't tell from outside how long it will be or how many switchbacks are open. It also does not come up on the wait times, so you have to guess... Leviathan at twilight is a really neat experience, check it out if you can.
