^X2 had music on Train #1, on rows 1-3 on the stair side. That was the only side that I went on yesterday, so I am not sure about the other side. The music was loud enough in the first 3 rows that you could clearly hear it on the rest of the train and from the queue. I rode in row 4 both times and I could hear it fine. Train #2 is still being worked on. I will have to check it out on Thursday.

No one can comprehend how happy I am that the Riddler music is back. Just gonna leave it at that...

 

I'm happy it's also already back to two trains. Last season they took forever and a day to work on the second train. (early November to mid March I think?). This season -- MUCH improved!

 

Glad to hear they're making progress on X2. It sounded like they were putting a lot of work on getting a reliable audio system in there at West Coast Bash. The music adds so much to the ride (or the lift hill at least).

^This year it took from mid-December to early April. So it's a little better!

 

And yes! You could even hear the music on X2 during the ride! Now they just need to fix the rest of the rows and all of the other train! They haven't given up!

Got to ride X2 last Thursday and had a great ride. I was pleasantly surprised when I got on and heard the audio playing! I was in the second row on the stair side, and although I didn't remember hearing the Rage song at the end of the ride, it did convince me again that it was cool atleast having it play while you're going up the lift. I've never been able to hear it during the ride.

 

I did hear the original Riddler Music playing while going through the exit of the ride (to get to the single rider line) but I don't remember hearing it in the station. I thought it was funny how on here I read that the song was gone, but I heard it, and ended up reading about it after my trip too!

 

I was only there for a few hours but I had a pretty good time at the park. I don't know how anyone is complaining about Colossus, I sat in the back and had the smoothest night ride on it and would have to say it's riding better than it has in a long time. Lots and lots of open space in Log Jammer's spot, looking at the area made me excited for the new ride, and less sad about seeing the old flume go.

 

Did not get to try the Dole Whip, although I tried! The location by Apocalypse and former Jammer (where I believe they are serving things like fried ice cream too) were closed by the time I got to them.

 

Has anyone had luck trying Dole Whip at the park yet?

Fully agreed. I didn't even realize they were making a point of working on it, but I'm grateful. They better keep it up!

Does anyone have a shot of the Viper train from Glee? People are talking about how new and nice it looked. Was it actually cleaned up in real life? The sun hasn't been kind to those old trains.

^ I will snap one tomorrow if they are running that train. I did notice that one train did look nicer than the others..

 

Also, the Rage song was off yesterday too. But the "This was a wild, crazy, insane experience.." at the end was on and loud!

Some of the shots look like they were touched up, I.e. the area around X2 looks amazingly lush and green, so I wouldn't be surprised if they did the same to the trains. The track was left nice and grease stained

I found this picture on the internet. It looks like there is some added detail to the trains on the sides.

 

I'm pretty sure that those "added details" are just a combination of the sun hitting the train's reflective coating, as well as the low resolution quality of the photo creating patches of this effect.

Yeah, I watched the episode last night on my DVR and Viper did look really nice, but I think they chose the right weather (cloud cover) for filming - it certainly wasn't a cloud-free day where everything was in full-sun.

Yes! It has gone vertical! And the park was packed today!!! And the X2 music is gone again 110 minutes wasted for nothing... And rode Roaring Rapids and got SOAKED!

 

And.. Ninja had a HUGE line.. The entire queue (including switchbacks) was almost full..

^ Wow, 60 minutes is the longest I would have waited for X2.. audio or not.

 

How was the weather? Surprised that it was that busy since it was quite chilly today down south. I guess, though, if you've planned out a trip for your vacation, some cold weather won't deter you from going to a theme park.

Rain is forecasted for tomorrow. Usually people plan their park day for a day that it's guaranteed not to rain. Tomorrow will probably be significantly less crowded.

You mean all three queuing sections? I haven't seen the third section (the first one you're in when you walk in the entrance) used in years!
