A few notes from my trip to the park yesterday...
Acrophobia has been closed for over a week now. Something tells me that lightning may have hit it during one of the many storms we had last week. I hope they get it working soon because I miss riding it.
The construction near Goliath is moving right along. The framing for the building is just about finished but the mystery still remains about whats going inside.
I witnessed a 5 (yes five) boat jam at Thunder River right at the tunnel leading into the last lake near the waterfall. It was strange because I actually anticipated the jam before it happened - as two boats emerged from the first tunnel within seconds of each other. The attendant sitting at the Lake 2/3 position (beside the Coke Freestyle lookout point) watched with confusion as the first two boats sat there. I personally had to tell her to call up to the operator to report the jam. I'm just glad she didn't press e-stop and cut the pumps because that would have been a bad situation.
Maintenance arrived less than 10 minutes after she made the call. It took them a little bit of head scratching but they eventually got the jam cleared and everybody made it back to the station safely.
Additionally, I stopped into Macho Nacho right as they were pouring in the FRESH queso! OMG OMG OMG! My mouth was in love! Those nacho's were the best I've had yet!
