  1. 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
  2. They officially posted on their website September 18th is the day it reopens!
  3. 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!
  4. 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!!!
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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....
  8. 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....
  9. I have to call out SFOG yesterday on a few levels. I'll preface this by saying i've been coming to this park for over 40 years. First, it seems all of the permanent pass/ticket machines were broken. They had to use portable ones which made the line to get in ridiculous. Second, it seems the red train is broken on TS. It didn't work last week at all and again this week the same issue. They had all week to work on it and it was still down. 3rd, why would you only be running 1 train on Goliath? This make no sense at all. Finally, as we walked through the park at least half the rides were closed or had a sign stating only 1 train running today. If I wasn't a member I would have been extremely pissed by the decision making yesterday. I hope they resolve these problems before spring break.
  10. I also had a chance to get to the park late Sunday night for a couple of rides on TC. I've ridden it over 40x now and I have to say it was running faster than ever before. I was out of my seat during the entire wave turn and the hill before and after the turn around were especially intense. I'm curious if anyone else has had the same experience recently? Thanks
  11. I don't usually ride the train but if I remember correctly it had at least 4 or 5 cars the last time I saw it running.
  12. I agree I would ride Twisted Cyclone and DDD first. Yes, the train has reopened. I would just buy a whole new pass at SFOG as they don't automatically renew. You're probably too late in the year for Passholder perks, but it's possible they could add something that hasn't been posted yet. I can't help you with Lake Winnie, sorry.
  13. For all of those curious the park just posted the link. The preview for members and pass holders will be all day Friday 10:30am-8:00pm. It will not be open to the general public until Saturday. https://www.sixflags.com/overgeorgia/special-events/celebration/gold%C2%A0and-platinum-member-preview-day-twisted-cyclone
  14. Interesting! I know Media Day is the 23rd so maybe they will formally announce it that day!! If it is Friday, I will miss it due to a graduation I guess the wildcard would be Thursday. If the media day goes well on Wednesday there's no reason they can't have a soft opening/Passholders preview on Thursday. I think they would rather open it on Friday to less crowds then to try for Saturday of Memorial day weekend.
  15. I'd like to know this too. One of the main reasons I decided to pull the trigger on a membership this year was because they advertised this as a perk. If they aren't going to do a soft opening for members, they really need to plan some other sort of event to make up for it. (Not just passholder previews for Fright Nights) Also, War Eagle. I called the park today to specifically ask about this and was told there WILL be a preview at the end of the week. She said watch the SFOG website for more details. I get the feeling the preview will have to be sometime on Friday since I think they're trying to have TS open to the public on Saturday. I also found a cached link that has not been made public yet but looks Very interesting. http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:o8olLF450wcJ:https://www.sixflags.com/overgeorgia/special-events/celebration/twisted-cyclone-t-shirt-ride-event&num=1&client=firefox-b-1-ab&hl=en&gl=us&strip=0&vwsrc=0
