I'll be trying it this Saturday if it's open. Since I have the dining pass I will be overjoyed if it turns out to be even slightly tolerable.

Supposedly the park is bringing back the pink things. Not to be confused with the garbage stuff they had been trying to sell the last few seasons. There supposed to be legit like the original. If this is true, best 2019 addition for SFOT.

as I noted in my SFFT report from last Sat, they are changing over the Panda Express to Chop Six there too.

and that one went from fully operating Panda Express in early Feb, to middle of re-construction/re-branding on 2/16.

so, yeah.. they seem to be a quick change over (I suspect they don't need to do any changes at all in kitchen set up). . so might be open for ya.

I never ate at Panda Express, even before we had dining plan. . so don't expect that to change for us even if Chop Six is an option. . but you never know. and it is nice to have more choices.

Out of 4-5 rides I took on it, the majority were full carriage, and still got full flips.. but there were one or two where it just felt like we were swinging back and forth.

so maybe it's just the luck of the draw program wise?

I will say that sitting in an outermost seat gave me the best rides, as the Head/Foot chopper effects from the spinning pipes really add to the effect.

Great Adventure's had 2-3 flips at the very beginning with a full load and then switched to just rocking.

Just a note, I believe Panda at SFFT has been closed since at least early December, but it looks like they're doing a lot of work there, including rebuilding the entire awning above it. I think there was probably a lot of work to be done inside, as well.

Hate to ask, and I am working on weight loss, but I haven’t been in many years and since the accident not sure how things changed.

I am 5 11 , male, and weight fluctuates from 298 to 302. Most of my fat on my belly and thighs . I do understand it is very difficult to tell because body shape is more important, but I was hoping someone of similar features has been there more recently than me. Any input appreciated.

If it helps, my more recent trip was to Universal Studios (Cali) March of last year, and the only thing I did not fit was the Harry Potter. I fit in Mummy and everything else fine

dunno about that, since I was there in early Feb, and tho as noted, I never ate there? would have noticed if it was closed, and did not notice.

but hey, could be mistaken.

an Asian style restaurant changing over to an Asian style restaurant?
seriously doubt any kitchen remodel was needed, since the kitchen would have been set up to produce the same kinds of food, and would still require the same type of cooking set up/equipment.

they are changing the front of the building tho (obviously new signage), and painting - hence the awning is being redone too.

here's the pic from last weekend that I took, once wall/sign went up.

Is the part about Yosemite Sam really true? Because I cant find any Winterfest update that says that. Thank you in advance

The news about Yosemite Sam came directly from the park during an ACE event in Arlington, last month. I was kind of surprised to hear that, due to the extensive damage, but I am happy that they will be repairing it. I will be at the park next weekend and see if there is any work being done.
