Awww, 70 bucks!? That's expensive but a good deal too, but I'm I can put $100 on a luna card and save it till next season, then get the wristband on that year with the $100 luna card saved up already. Anywho I there for a job interview so I took pictures of the area

The cyclone was running for testing, a bit slow but I expected that

Agreed on the paint job; much needed and it looks absolutely beautiful!

 

Regarding that "space for sale"; was that the lot that was previously housing the art walls & Smorgasburg last year? Also, any sign of Endeavor being assembled yet?

 

Looks like there's still a limited number of those $80-for-two extreme wristbands left on Groupon as of this morning, so if you've not picked them up yet, definitely get in while the gettin's good.

Does anyone know if Thunderbolt will be open on opening day?

I can't say with 100% certainty, but I'd be shocked if it wasn't. Considering they were running it on New Years, I don't think temperature would be a factor here.

 

Awesome, I can't wait for some more crazy airtime on the return run of that ride. Despite not liking it too much opening year, I rode it last year and it vastly improved. Gave me one of the crazier rides in recent memory. Maybe I just learned how to ride it.

Sadly Endeavor was not there when I went, and the space for sale used to belong to a bank of some sorts a long time ago, the art wall and the Smorgasburg is still there

Looks like the new 2016 park map is up.

 

Of note, it appears that the price has been raised on the Cyclone, and it is now 10 credits / $10 per ride, up from 9 last year. This brings it in line with Thunderbolt which is still staying steady at 10. I guess we're paying for the new paint job... In fact, this year it seems there's been a standardization across the board. All "mild thrill" rides are 3 credits, "moderate thrill" rides are 4 credits, and "high thrill" rides are 7 credits.

 

In addition to the Endeavor, which has a posted minimum height of 48" and is classified as "high thrill", it appears that the kids section also got a classic Convoy ride installed, replacing the old Big Top Express. Windstarz has been bumped up from "mild thrill" to "moderate thrill".

 

Assuming the weather holds up, I hope to be able to swing by Sunday afternoon or evening and get some photos!

From this article on BrooklynPaper.com, it appears that in addition to the fresh paint job for the Cyclone, Zamperla has also gone in and done some track work on it as well, including replacing some rough sections. I thought it was riding pretty well last season, so I'm impressed that they're continuing to keep up quality maintenance on this. Can't wait for Sunday!

Has anyone checked this out?

It seems Ghost Hole and Monica's "Ring the Bell" is in the way of the city's plan to make "Wonder Wheel Way" a walkway that connects the Parachute Jump, The Wonder Wheel and The Cyclone, thoughts?

According to the latest newsletter sent out, the Endeavor will officially launch on April 28th.

I am so excited to try this thing out! I need to get back to the park within the next couple of months because when I went on opening day both Windstarz and Power Surge were closed (along with Endeavor of course). Also, I need to try out the platinum wristband now knowing that Slingshot takes single riders!!!
