^ Not sure. It's possible they're still using the kitchen for some type of catering service.

Memorial Day coming up. Anyone planning to attend the member preview for Harley Quinn Spinsanity?

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

It would be nice if later on they moved part of the game building near Batman to make the pathway connect to the other side. SFOT already has so many dead ends. Also from the photo I’m posting you can see how much room will still be there even after the Harley ride since it’s not taking up much.

The Tourbillion doesn't take up much room at all. There's plenty left for more rides.

There is no such thing as a donkey punch.

It's gonna be up and running? I've looked around and didn't see anything. I'm going if this is true

^ They have all those temporary wooden structures holding the ride up... Obviously those wooden structures will be removed for normal operations. . . Just curious if there will be any permanent metal structures replacing them???

(I know it's highly unlikely. Just a thought though.)

Looking at the ride, it does seem rather, well, complicated. You know, lots of moving parts. But I think those supports are purely temporary.

That's what I was thinking.

My only reasoning behind thinking there might be permanent steel supports coming to replace it would be for the "off season" and over night when the ride is laying in that position. The supports might take a lot of strain/wear off the hydraulics holding it up.

But hey, idk. I'm not an engineer, and I didn't design the ride. Obviously those who did know what they are doing.

Just something I thought of, and thought I'd point out. Dont sue me. :devil:

EDIT: Nevermind. I now see what seems to be the more permanent steel version I was describing above.

Sooooooo anyone have a guess when it will be ready to roll? I don't want to miss the "ride exclusive! members only because you're so special!" morning since its just too hot when we get deep into summer to ride something that spins like this, for me anyways.
So that will probably be my one ride until Fright Fest when it cools down.
