Reminds me of Sidewinder @HP's trains, which I thought rode nicely back in my 2018 visit. Not sure what the old trains were like but these look like a solid addition. Love the little decals, looks like they have character!

Hilarious 1997 commercial for the Great Nor'easter, uploaded and sent to me by a family friend.

Interesting. These look like the original Vekoma vests and not the thinner, softer ones found on Lech Coaster. I was hoping Vekoma had changed their design to be more comfortable. The Lech Coaster restraints are great!

I rode Carolina Cyclone at Carowinds with Vekoma's original vest restraints and I found them to be very comfortable. Way better then B&M's vest restraints
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

Going down next weekend. I know Adventure Pier won't be open, but what's still closed on the other two? Sounds like they've gotten a lot open since the beginning of the month so hoping most of the usual favorites are back up.

Also, there's no way to get a wristband, correct? I'm fully expecting to have to buy tickets but didn't know if there's a way to get a wristband that isn't listed on the site.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Their website seems to be missing several rides on the two piers that are open (ex. Zoom Phloom and the dark rides), so I presume those ones are closed.

Thanks, didn't see that when i was clicking around earlier.

We'll miss the flume for sure (unless by some miracle it opens in the next week) but more time for It is a good thing.
