Six Flags announced they bought 5 new parks today. 3 of them are water parks only.

So Darien Lake and Frontier City both rejoin the Six Flags family. Funny how that works, hope it goes better this time.

Some pieces for their new water slide are still sitting in the parking lot, so it looks like it wasn't quite ready in time for Memorial Day weekend.

Also has Justice League been closed recently? Everything was closed due to weather when I arrived. I thought it was odd their indoor ride would be closed too.

If it won't be ready some communication from the park would be nice.

The crane has been working at the water park all day. Even if they complete it, wouldn't they still need to get it tested/inspected?

The Eagle has had a long wait all day. I'm currently queuing and this may be my only ride on it. Is it better towards the front or back?

I've only ridden it once, somewhere near the middle/back area. I think the back area (non wheel seat) is probably the best due to how awesome the whip over the first drop is (WOW, gotta love those long trains) and the floater airtime is phenomenal presumably in most seats (seriously, this is the strongest and most sustained floater air I've ever felt)

^ I'm about to board the front, but I'm going to get back in line around closing to try the back too. That sounds delightful.

I really don't think you can go wrong with any seat on Screamin' Eagle. The setting and airtime are so much fun

^ The front was excellent. Honestly I think it's my favorite ride in the park so giving it a second ride is a must now.

The park maintains their woodies really well. American Thunder and Screamin' Eagle are about as smooth a traditional wooden coaster can be. Then I went in expecting the worst from the Boss but I found it reridable and not all that rough.
