As far as I'm concerned the employee lunch area will be put in Deja Vu's spot since it will get removed for construction of LL:DOD and also according to some previous posts.....

 

I would hope at least for myself that the employee lunch area isn't moved as far away as Deja Vu spot. Being that I'm now located out in the auto shop area heck even current location near Goliath is 12 min walk.

 

Its nice in current location with lots of seating and Tv's to perhaps watch weekend sports and just get away from the loud noises of the park itself even for 30 minutes but a move to Deja Vu area I will never see the inside of it.

Decent day at the park today! Photos will be up very soon (cell phone quality only though). Here's a quick overview: 1 train operation on X2! This isn't good... took an hour and I got in line at 5 PM. It was because of the valleying. The valleyed train was completely reassembled, but all the seats were still in the flipped position in the maintenance area. Tatsu-best operations in a LONG time. They were NOT stacking and there was a 1 train wait. Riddlers had a long line due to 1 train operation, so I opted for single rider. Superman was still running, but I didn't get a chance to ride it. Green Lantern was walk-on all day, and I was lucky enough to get stuck on it! The stabilizer wasn't stabilizing the car behind us. It continued to flip and flip them! The ride ops told the riders to kick to make the weight a little more balanced, but it was very funny. Scream was running one train, so there was a 10 min. wait, and Goliath was walk-on. It was a very dead day at the park, which you will see on my pictures coming VERY soon!

Here's some photos from today. A few more will be coming later.

Green Lantern had a very short line all day today! The only line was a few minutes inside!

More Green Lantern shortness! I love these days! It was almost like ERT! Other than X2.. But we will get to that later.

One train operation on Scream! It was a bit longer than usual because of this.

Goliath was running 2 trains today, so it was a walk-on. Again, like ERT!

The midways were very empty today. It was like a ghost town. You will almost never see this, especially this area of the park.

This was the end of the line for X2 due to 1 train operation. It took about an hour to get on the ride. The line moved VERY slow!

The ramp on the side of the station took about 30 minutes to get through.

The ride op managing this side of the station was filling the station to a four train wait inside the station, then would let the station empty until there was no one in it before he would let anyone else in. Then he would fill it again! It was an interesting plan. But this is what the empty station looks like.

 

More pics coming tomorrow! But overall pretty good day! And nothing has really changed inside the park except new station music for Riddlers and Goliath. X2's music was off, but the fire was on. Have a good night!

So what is the new music like? I'm sure the Riddler's crew is happy about this!

Please expound on the Riddler's song! Haven't heard it!

 

Goliath has a new jungle-ish soundtrack that is very nice. Before the station just seemed kind of dead.

Wait, pardon me if I don't know something about 4D coasters or I missed something, but how can the train valley there...? Are there anti rollbacks there or something?

 

The train didn't valley there, it's being hoisted over the last raven, and being held in place by ropes. They're doing it this way so it can make it back to the transfers on its own. Much easier/quicker than disassembling the train.

 

Also I believe there are a set of brakes heading up that final raven turn.

 

Nope. Someone mentioned there was when the ride opened, but I don't remember that.

 

In regard to X2 valleying before the last raven: there was an instance where they physically "removed" a section of the track in that very spot to disassemble the train car by car and take it back up the hill to the storage transfers, but they haven't done that in a while. In fact there used to be a picture of the cut out track piece floating around here or other coaster sites for some time. Pretty interesting to say the least.

When I went last week, it sounded kind of similar to the Batman station. Don't remember exactly what it sounded like, but it was pretty cool I thought .

Nice TR, I'm was kind of worried that X2 would be closed for longer, but it looks like they got it up and running, albeit 1 train. Hopefully it will be this empty when I go on Feb 26. Is it usually crowded in February?

I'm very curious as well... I'll be going on my birthday (Feb. 25th).
