P. 1989: Wicked Twister's permanent closure announced!

Recommended Posts

That is great news, it puts you a lot closer to Frontier Town and probably saves you 15-20 minutes walking from the main gate. Note that all of the other auxiliary gates are closed, and that you'll need a wristband from Express to get in through the Magnum/Resort gate.

All set! SV and Maverick first it is, MF if we can

I believe at the moment it is just if you have all season OR if you had purchased a fastpass pre-shutdown. Hoping they will start selling them again like KI did.

 

So, we are staying at Breakers at the end of the month. We were not given any option on picking a reservation time, just the assurance that you are guaranteed entry into the park. Will we automatically get the earlier time? I assumed we would get to enter at the resort gate like always.

 

Hoping since it is still two weeks away that things will have smoothed out operationally and that maybe they will put fastpass back on the table.

I'll join in on the ranking fun. First and only time there was Valravn opening year (long live the boat) but will make it back again eventually.

 

1.) Maverick - By far the best. Everything I like in a coaster.

5.) Magnum XL-200 - Arrow pyramid hills for the win.

6.) Millennium Force - I'm on the over hyped train but considering what else I rode this is where it lives.

7.) Iron Dragon - I'm a sucker for these and while most is lackluster, the ending is redeeming.

8.) Valravn - In the back is where it's at.

9.) Rougarou - It packs a little more punch I feel then the standard sit downs, it helped the the trim was off on the first drop and brake run.

10.) Top Thrill Dragster - It's a one trick pony more then anything else but I didn't care for the front at the time. My mistake. Kinda Ka changed my mind.

11.) Corkscrew - I didn't find it terrible, the back car off the first drop is actually some seriously good ejector airtime other then that it's vanilla.

12.) Gemini - It would of been great if it was racing. But just felt drawn out. The jerk in the helix didn't help.

13.) Cedar Creek Mine Ride - Long live the Arrow mine train!

 

I still need to write up my trip report from long ago but overall thoughts is that I found the park to be over hyped. Of all the parks I went to on that trip it would fall on the lower section for me.

Very nice. How's the weather holding out? I was considering staying an extra day but saw 50+% chance of thunderstorms all day and didn't bother.

We sat down and buckled in on Maverick at 1235 and it opened up. Was down about 15 minutes and started rolling again. Only drizzle since.

 

Unpopular opinion: Melt was garbage. Fried mac and cheese bites were great but our entrees were blah.

Just saw in the news that 3 employees tested positive before their shifts yesterday. Makes you wonder how that effects operations based on where they were working.

 

They send them home to quarantine for two weeks, then shift three other people into those positions (or not) and then they wipe everything the f*#k down a whole bunch.

Well it was quiet at the park today, which made thing relatively easy. Were were able to ride all the open adult coasters once except Mine Ride (didnt try to), and MF, GateKeeper and Valravn twice. Kids rode Tiki Twirl, Troika and maXair. Another day, another "hopefully tomorrow" for TTD.

 

Heres a pic of socially distanced MF.

I'm seeing possibly Saturday for TTD on reddit. Sounds like you guys had a good day and it's calmed down a bit. Nice.

 

Definitely, longest wait was when it started raining as we buckled into Maverick, or when we did standby on MF.

 

Which reminds me to say... your best bet is staying on site if you can. We were in line for SV passes by 1015 from the resort gate. Got those within 30 seconds of distribution starting and went right to Maverick's pass line. Three minutes later we were on our way to MF. Got 12-1 passes for all three and hopped right in the standby line for MF after grabbing our passes. There was no line for MF passes either. We ended up not using the MF passes until 715 or so and by then it was almost a walk on.

So are they just basically opening the resort gate for all hotel guests at about 10? I noticed it did not have us choose a park arrival time when I made the hotel reservation.
