  1. The park opens the gates 30 minutes prior to the posted time. Cyclone and Scorcher are always open before the rest of the park. I haven't seen Acrophobia running for the last several months.
  2. Hey, I am a local. Yes, the park has been dead this summer most of the time. Sorry, I can't answer the Batman seat question but I don't ever remember seeing this. I don't expect the back of the park to be closed during Holiday is the Park. Especially because they just re-tracked GASM this year. If you have any other questions feel free to ask me.
  3. I was able to make it out on Friday and the crowds were very light. I was there for less than 3 hours and I didn't wait more than 1 train for any ride. The re-track of GASM exceeded my expectations. It's not perfectly smooth but it's actually fun to ride again. I would recommend the second to last car. I also rode in the front but I think the back is still the better place to be. I don't know how long it's going to stay in this condition. I would get out there and take advantage while you can.
  4. Unfortunately, they had mechanical issues with MB this morning and it never opened during the planned preview time for me. They did test with 3 trains, so capacity shouldn't be an issue. I know from speaking to others that it did finally open mid afternoon, hopefully someone else will post a review. I attached a short video during testing. MB-1.mp4
  5. They officially posted on their website September 18th is the day it reopens!
  6. Yes, everything is open in Gotham City except Mindbender. As I mentioned in the post above, there's a decent chance Mindbender may reopen this week. Fingers crossed!
  7. I spent less than 2 hours at the park today(Sun). I was able to get 2 rides on TS and 3 on Goliath. My last ride was on GASM, I was curious to see if they did any work to it during the off season. On my way out at about 12:15 I saw park president Dale K out front. I asked him if they were still on schedule for the re-tracking of GASM for it's 50th anniversary in 2023. This time the story seemed completely different from the last. He of course blamed Covid for them being behind but he also seemed he backed away from the words I used re-tracking. I may be wrong but i'm betting the fantasy of a refurbished GASM seems unlikely now. I think they may do some patch work but I remember being told specifically the track was being replaced almost entirely. On another subject he did give me some details about Mindbender. Instead of (2) 7 car trains there will now be (3) 5 car trains. I'm sure that means they have to modify the braking/staging system to accommodate the extra train. He didn't tell me a time frame for it's opening, but I would think Memorial day would be a good guess. The track looked complete from the angle I was looking but it still needs to be painted and tested. I imagine the park will be packed by mid day today, it was getting pretty crowded and there was still a long line of cars waiting to get in. Everyone really wants to get out of the house, please be safe!!!
  8. I think it was confirmed earlier this year that they were going to do a complete retracking of gasm over a couple years. I was told by Gene in marketing that it's a 5 year re-tracking plan that started this past year. That would make the 5th year 2023 for the 50th anniversary.
  9. The time change for the front of the park must have happened in the last few weeks. It seems to me the early entry would allow people to start spending their money sooner but the park must have other ideas.
  10. I Just want to add to the GASM discussion after a conversation I had this past Friday. I was told the re-tracking is a 5 year plan and they will replace all of the track before it's over. This came from a very reliable source, we'll see what happens....
  11. Then it must also be stunning that I live 20 minutes from the park. I don't expect miracles but I do expect the most popular rides to run more than I car. There shouldn't be an hour wait before noon on Goliath or TC ever in my opinion. GASM and Bluehawk were not running at all pre lunch time....
