Anyone planning on going to the Power Hours event this Friday? I think you are going to like some of the surprises.

I wish I could but my wife works nights on weekdays and we only have the one truly functional car (a Ram 1500 worth less than the head gasket job it needs isn't really functional if it takes 2 quarts of oil per hour driving). Hope the park does more than 2 of these, and maybe on weekends. Sundays would be interesting.

Did anyone ever figure out if it's a hard ticket event for season pass/membership members?

OFFICIAL: It is free!

I will be there! I got a reservation for 6:15. I just made a reservation like normal and it was the earliest time available. I don't have to make a special reservation for the event, do I? Also for anyone wondering, the dining pass will be accepted during the event.

Trip Report on 4/16:

Arrived at the park a little after 9pm after a last minute decision to head to the park after work. It was just starting to rain, with temps around 55 degrees. Parking gate was down to only one stall, and they were waving people though and not checking people's reservation's.  Every ride I went onto was a walk on, I first hit up Batman as I knew I only had time to do one full rotation through the park. The queue was literally cut in half, which made it a breeze to walk on. Then I hit Ninja with its nice light package, though the ride was a little rougher tonight, more than usual. I love that the park is giving more love to Ninja, but please get new trains! Afterwards I walked by River King Mine Train, which unfortunately just went down, so I didn't get my night ride this time. So I went up to Screamin Eagle, which now has the new dividers, got to ride it twice. I really enjoyed riding Screamin Eagle at night, flying though the trees. After I walked down to The Boss, which I was surprised to see running in this weather. The operations were slow, and the team was not working well together. So I got my one ride and was done, but I did also enjoy the Boss hauling through the trees. By the time I hit Supergirl, it was getting close to the park closing. So I made my last stride down to American Thunder, and got my last two rides before the park closed ending out a awesome, wet, night. The only rides that I saw that were not running were again River King, Pandemonium, and Mr Freeze. River and Pandemonium were having maintenance working on them, and I didn't get a chance to see what was wrong with Freeze. @castaway_kid might know what happened as I didn't get a chance to go into the DC area.

Edit: I checked Facebook, Mr. Freeze had valley again, I heard it did so also last weekend. Apparently also Justice League was down, but I ain't sure for how long.

Park wise, everything was pretty much running smoothly, with a few hiccups. All the rides were now filling every row, with dividers now in every queue on every coaster I was on. One thing I will saw I dislike was that there was some dark areas in the park, which you would think they would have the lights on if the pathway was open. And the Boss queue line was very dark, I saw some people trip because the lights weren't working. One thing I really liked towards family's, was that the staff were operating the mini kids train and the kids tugboat even though they weren't on the list.

Batman's new split queue, quite nice on the legs 😂:

Screaming Eagle got some lights also:

Screamin Eagles new dividers, which the ride operators hate, they were having trouble seeing people:

Boss also got the same dividers:

And to end it out, here is American Thunders light package:

I'm sorry but I just had to give an exasperated laugh. Why would they not use clear dividers, good grief can you even imagine the immediate and constant frustration of being a ride op in that situation

The lights look really well done. They need to stay.

Agree, from what I could see I personally think they are here to stay, they could change the colors to match what is going on in the park like for Halloween and Christmas.

Now they just need to light up the rest of the park, because there are some really awkward dark areas like going past Ninja to River King, almost complete blackness except for Spinsanity with its lights.

Also Screamin Eagle needs to have some lift lights, Boss looks awesome with them, why the park does not install them on Eagle I don't understand.

I really do hope Six Flags does fix this, all the ride ops from Screamin Eagle to American Thunder expressed in some way how they can't see anyone, heck GP's cant see anything 🤣. American Thunder when I walked on, the station was completely empty, and because they were doing procedure training with a new ride op, they didn't even realized I was there till I poked my head out 😂

They are finally shortening the front section of Batman's queue?! No more scampering required!

From what I can tell by the concrete forms, they are making a path for days when the park is not busy and then they can rope it off when they want to use the full queue.

Now, can they get rid of the old haunt by the exit, it looks so tacky.

Those dividers seem like a pretty big safety issue, probably worse than Covid itself!

Well unless SFStL can beat 563,216 dead and around 10 million sent to the hospital I'd say it's not a major safety issue.

 

It looks like they're using the same material for all of the dividers so maybe they just haven't cut those holes for the plexi yet.

I honestly wonder that myself, I hope that those solid dividers are not going to be used the rest of the season.
