Glad you had a good time. Outside of Country Fair, there are actually a fair amount of non-coaster rides but the majority of them are water rides and are closed this time of year. You will have to come back sometime in the spring or summer because you missed four decent water rides.

I noticed that, River Battle looks awesome... they did a great job hiding the other water rides so I couldn't really see them but from what I see online they look great.

I have to say there were a few things that really blew me away about the theming of this park. On River Battle I noticed that the "E" was missing on one of the signs and it really looked like it just ripped off. I turned to say something to my girlfriend about how surprising that was since the park was so immaculate and then I looked down and saw a big squirrel holding the "missing" E.

Also, on Mystery Mine after the first lift the car takes a slight jump onto the trestle and they made it look like one of the beams under the track is cracking. You can only see this from the ride and honestly only one person out of 10 will even notice it, but they still did it and I really appreciated it.

I don't mean to go on and on about how much I love this park but I can't help it. The fact that it's 12 hours away and we bought season passes is really all you need to know.

We didn't which is a shame but we just ran out of time since we only had one day at the park. I was just so happy to be riding coasters in December that we kept riding them over and over again. I really wish we had more time at this park since I want to check out some shows and ride the train... luckily we're season pass holders now so we'll be back!

^But you missed the HoloDollygram.

Everytime someone misses the HoloDollygram an Elf kills another reindeer. ;)

^^^hopefully you'll get to ride Thunderhead in the rain some day. As much as I love it normally, it was crazy fast in the rain.

Having Thunderhead in the rain to myself for 5 hours during my 2009 visit was one of the greatest days ever!
