I don't know, I just don't like the concept art for this, it looks odd where it is.
1: Lightning Run, 2: El Toro, 3: Maverick, 4: Xcelerator, 5: Voyage, 6: TTD, 7: Gold Striker, 8: El Loco (Vegas), 9: Millennium Force, 10: Kingda Ka Coaster Credits: 110 (89 steel, 21 wood); Last Coaster Credit: Raptor (CP) [8/22/14]; Last Park Credit: Waldameer [8/21/14] What a season pass??
Haha, you guys have basically covered my initial reactions. I remember TMNT (still) being popular when I was, like, 3. Not surprised there's going to be a new series making it relevant again, explaining why it's worthy of a ride theme.
Cute name...I'm generally a fan of rides that are somehow interactive, so this looks like fun.
Things have been flying along up here. Both new additions are complete. The slides will open this Wednesday, with TMNT to follow on the 17th.
Honestly I'd put TMNT's themeing up against any flat ride Busch, Six Flags, or Herschend would do. The thing looks absolutely fantastic! And if the slides are are anywhere on par with the Shoe Slides at the City Museum, I will faint. The taller slide has two straightaways that employees were flying down today. Now here's your Construction Update for 3/3/12:
Edit: I hope these aren't too big, I apologize though if they are.
Very nice site to be greeted with! Just as intimidating as the Axe.
Though I do like the sign, it's just as dark in person as it looks here.
I swear to god they stole this design from Spirit Halloween Store's 2012 decorations...
I'm not kidding haha.
Backside of the facade. Anyone see the hidden Easter Egg?
Gerslauter Employee checking out the control panel. Isn't it awesome?
Love the pizza slices!
Frickin' Awesome if I do say so.
Blah, blah, blah, 6 points, same as Axe.
Love the shells and weapons!
Was great to see that the Mantinence Employees had no trouble flipping the seat.
Very cool new Street Lamps!
Doing something up there.
And that's all for that!
Then there's this thing that hasn't been advertised.
No word yet on whether multiple trips down the slides will be allowed.
Interesting that the slides are shorter...
They look mighty awesome up there, should be the highest guest acessible spot in the park.
A new one of these was added to the top!
So this just recently went in behind the Goblet Toss. Glad to see them rembering the past (yeah right). BTW, he only shot 8 out of 15 :P
They were filming for something called "Fur Real Friends Dizzy Dancers" for the entire time I was there. Seriously children dancing for 4 hours, just straight jumping and dancing. Lot's of security, too. Couldn't even get close with a camera.
Thanks for lurking 'til the very end, and "Be sure to check back very soon, ya Scurvy Bilge Rat Scallywags!"
