The Grunt Lantern (Green Lantern) is finally gone. I took this picture before they removed all the steel support structure. Good luck to the Canadians with this one. I only rode it twice and that was two times too many!!!

Also the spaghetti bowl is complete now for West Coast Racers. Looks mesmerizing...

One other thing I forgot to mention. Apocalypse is back and running great! Today there was a membership ERT and I rode it seven times without getting off. It's VERY RE-RIDEABLE. The only thing missing is the fire.
I love fire... :lover:

Soooo....fright fest....they put no effort into this year.

The scarezone in front of bugs bunny world is gone and the new maze is 90% the old vault 666.

Best thing is that apocalypse is running good. Second best is the slider show.

Condemned is still a good maze and sewer of souls still has one really neat effect, but the other mazes are very tired and not so good.

Now someone is saying that they stopped construction work because of financial issues with going 365 days.

Can I park my donkey here?

Construction was still going on last week when I went. Not sure where this info is coming from.

I love donkeys more than me.
