The park announced a new show today that will be featured at Halloween Haunt!

 

"Enter this abandoned movie theater at your own risk as the owner has gone mad! For one last night, he will view his favorite horror movies before the wrecking ball destroys his life. To his shock, the screen comes to life and haunts his soul. Do you dare to join the viewing party???"

 

This is the first show in Halloween Haunt history to feature ice skaters!

 

A show with killer ice skaters running over people and chopping them up with their skates could be terribly awesome!

And fake blood squirting onto the front row, can call it the "Bloody Squirt Zone"

So, Gold Striker was running great today! Some MAJOR changes to the queue, to fix the graffiti problem. Lines were a weird mixed bag. Gold Striker held a solid hour wait all day and into the night. I got in 7 rides regardless of. Was funny though, after getting off the final ride at 10:30 (park is closed) some kids run and get back in line. Nobody was even blocking the entrance.

 

Here's a mini update on what's going on around the park. Yup, the vibe of Haunt is now in the air!

I hope you all got your final rides on RLD as it's now closed for the season.

Yup, that lovely time of year before the dreaded off-season!

However, (hard to see) somebody actually wrote on Gold Striker itself...ugh...

Fireworks from Gold Striker :)

And the new banner is up!

And, kids only asking for trouble. Clearly they cared less of what the 2 signs say on the stage.

Yup, vandalism is bad...too bad you vandalized just to get your message across, you hypocrite!

image.thumb.jpg.0759c68234847acea15b777ee0dbec2c.jpg

Feels a lot more open now!

Madame Marie's facade gone up now!

I've certainly been on worse than Grizzly, Roar at SFDK is running very rough right now and when I ride Ghostrider at WCB, that'll also shake me around pretty good. Grizzly's also much smoother now thanks to the heavy retracking it has received over the past few years, but that doesn't change the fact that it is a very lifeless, forceless, lethargic, slow, and actionless coaster. I could fall asleep before the train dispatches, and by the time the train gets back to the station I'd still be asleep.

Grizzly is like a leisurely stroll through the woods, it's nice but nothing exciting.

 

Why is this one so much different than Kings Dominion's? And how do the three of them compare(for anyone who has ridden all 3)....KD, Canada's Wonderland, and this one?
