Probably gonna go tomorrow as well . Hoping the crowds won't be too bad.

There are other jobs available.  Not even close to a fair comparison.  And I’m someone who is a causality of this nonsense. The rational argument you should be making is how if the goal is to kee

On Saturday 11/21, Theme Park Review was invited to see the Six Flags Magic Mountain Holiday in the Park Drive-thru Experience. It’s rare for park patrons to get to drive through a theme park, so this

I received an email from Knott's today asking Californians to help reopen the parks by messaging the governor.  It took me only a couple of minutes to copy and paste some stuff, so it is super easy, a

So this person is just guessing, not really knowing how long this will actually take because he is not the one building it and he went into a restricted area to look at at?....NO!

LL:DOD will open when it opens, arguing over the "lack" of construction is beyond stupid and will not make it open any sooner. At the end of the day IT IS A DROP TOWER, not some epic new airtime filled coaster. As far as I'm concerned, SFMM can take their sweet time with the construction. Although I'm kind of excited to ride this massive drop tower, I know I wont be planning a special trip to the park just to ride LL:DOD when it opens.

^cool! Maybe I'll see you! I'm gonna get there around 10.

I'm a little sick right now so I may not end up going I'll see how I feel tomorrow. If I do go however, I'll be wearing a dark blue I love Animatronic Hippos shirt so you can spot me easily .

He also mentioned that he took a few ride POV's and might put them on YouTube.

I feel like the only one here that believes the park will come through and construct this on time. Be optimistic guys!

 

As said at West Coast Bash, the ride would be clamped onto the tower, not welded. I can't imagine that clamping would take longer than welding.

 

Then, there's the testing phase. Again, I don't think this will take long, compared to a roller coaster's testing phase. There's no block-sectioning, and overall, there's just a lot less to test.

^Define on time. They said SPRING. That means they have til mid-late June to funish this and open it up. And that is plenty of time. Let's end with this. LL:DOD will open sometime in the next 4 months.

 

And my ride to the park (they aren't going with me) is leaving early so I will be at the park around 9:45 AM. (yay.) Well at least we will be the first ones in!

Had a GREAT day at the park today! It was empty(well, for Spring Break). Longest wait was 20 minutes for Tatsu. Other headlines:

 

1. X2 music is BACK ON on one of the trains

2. All the photo booths received NEW flatscreen TVs and all the booths just look new

3. Riddler's Revenge is back to 2 trains! Walked right on today! (and..the old station music is back)

4. Apocalypse, Batman, Ninja, and Goldrusher were running one train

5. Baja Ridge has the Mexican music playing again! my favorite!

6. The park is now fully staffed (security at the front of every line at the entrances, etc.)

7. GREAT operations. Even Tatsu was barely stacking! GL was slower than ever though...

8. LL:DOD is being worked on. There were workers on top of the Superman tower today. Sky tower still closed.

 

Pictures might be coming soon. I don't know if my computer will start working again..

 

Any questions/comments?

 

Thanks!

P.S. I might be back at the park on Thursday...

Sounds like a good day! Wish I could have gone but I just wasn't feeling well enough to make the drive . Hopefully will make a trip soon to check out the Dole whips .

Yea, 2 trains back on Riddlers!! I really missed the platform music. It's just part of the ride experience. I'm sure the rideops hate it -- over and over. Sounds like the place is back to full strength... I wish I was there to enjoy.
