That reminds me... we were too busy gorging ourselves on pizza to try the fries. Oh well, there's always next year. :lol:

Some great new drone footage surfaced a couple weeks ago, thought I'd share. Gives a good sense of how on top of everything is back there, for those not familiar.

It would be so cool if that actually worked. I'm still skeptical though.

Fyi yall Morey's is having a pretty awesome holiday sale right now if anyone is planning a 2017 visit.

I'm especially excited this year as they are offering their season pass to those under 42 inches or over 25 years of age (i.e. ME) for only $210!! That includes a few BAF days, discounts on food and retail, a free picnic, unlimited tram rides Mon-Fri before 5pm, and half off all the upcharges (Sling Shot, Screamin Swing, Skycoaster, Skyscraper). They offer payment plans for this FYI. Not too shabby.

They are also offering for the first time ever, due to popular demand, a Water Park only season pass.

After the Morey's Piers presentation at Winter Adventure, I'm a little bit less worried about the new Nor'Easter. As we have inferred, it's using the same exact type of track as the other SLCs. But what makes it better is that Vekoma has better "track-bending methods" as they called it (I'm pretty sure that just means smoother track fabrication). Apparently, the new SLC in Energylandia is actually smooth, (this exact ride was mentioned in the presentation) and this is what the new Great Nor'Easter is expected to be like. I'm still a tiny bit concerned, but this is good news.

I enjoyed T3 last summer despite it not being anywhere close to smooth thanks to the new trains eliminating the headbanging. Since Morey's already has the upgraded trains, making this layout any smoother would be a win for me, especially since the Nor'Easter interacts so well with the water slide.

The newer trains were fine for a while but something needed to be done about the ride. My last rides the past few summers were downright awful. No headbanging obviously with the newer restraints, but the forces somehow gave me a headache bad enough I needed to drown myself in Advil, coffee and beer.

I poke manatees in the butt.

Looks like we will be taking the "wait and see"'approach with the new Nor'Easter then.
