Wait Batwing is open? It was listed as closed indefinitely just last week.

It's SFA, there's a 99% chance the sign for the temporary closed broke so they brought out the indefinite closed one instead of purchasing/fixing the old sign. :lolr:

Don't know how exciting HITP will be here; considering Gotham City is closed off.

May as well check it out one day.

Hasn't it always been closed for HITP?

Yes. This event is exactly the same as it's been for a half-a-decade. Firebird, Mind Eraser, Ragin Cajun, Roar and Wild One will be open along with all non-water rides in the front of the park. Everything behind Wild One will be closed.

The park's christmas setup is very pretty this year. Unfortunately I didn't get any photos, I will try again on Sunday.

If you're someone who usually skips Roar, I would recommend riding it this year in the front it's absolutely fabulous especially in the dark.

Wild One's trim is really hitting, anyone know what's up with that? Does the cold make the wood more brittle or something? The change was made right before the festival, was running nearly totally off all summer. Still a 9.5/10 coaster.

The straight up lies on the station signs always make me laugh. One sign claims it was reprofiled to install the log flume, but there are POV's of the ride in its original configuration with the log flume running. Another claims the top speed was increased with the reprofile, it wasn't it was actually lowered. It was the net speed that was increased due to the removal of a trim in the first half.

The bottom of the first drop was raised about 10ft in the modification. I'm not sure if the trains were changed in that same year, but even if they were I don't think the heavier trains would have made enough of a difference to offset the drop size change. I suppose it's possible it reaches a higher top speed at the bottom of the second hill than it used to at the first but who knows.
