Can't wait to visit on those weekdays in January and February. Weather should be cool and crowds will probably be non-existent!
Coaster count:
101 (87 steel, 14 wood)

Top 5:
I305 | El Toro | Maverick | Twisted Colossus | Alpengeist

Did the donkey fairy give me this title?

Yeah, they're going to need that extra revenue to catch up after paying for that record breaking Giga at the mountain in 2018..;)

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

Again? They just closed it for like 8 months for some retracking... any idea what they're doing now?

They need to blow that ride up! Replace it with a new Big Dive Coaster to take up old Deja Vu and Apocalypse land.

And to think this park was almost sold during the Shapiro era.. what a complete 180 in thinking.

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

If I remember correctly, they always heavily re-theme Apocalypse in "Shadows of Evil" during FrightFest. Anyone else can confirm?

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Have you ridden it since the latest refurb? They actually made a difference this time, I dare say it's enjoyable now, though it will never been a smooth ride, it's at least down to just being rough as any old woodie. I used to say tear it down too, but now that it's been improved, I'd rather they keep it as long as they can keep it in this condition.

When Apocalypse is rideable (last time I really enjoyed it was 2014, but haven't yet been since the latest work), it's in the top 5 in the park for me.

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!
