The 2018 addition seems like a fan service. Great for Season Pass holders, but nothing to draw in new guests.

That's what I keep saying. Just by eyeballing it, it is easy to see that attendance has been up the last 2 years. Maybe they are happy where they are at right now. Key phrase, 'right now '.

Rode Roar after the retrack and wow, what a smooth ride! Running awesome.

Batwing was running a different train than normal today, looked recently refurbed. Very nice! Grey paint instead of the other train's purple.

Lifeguard Lead at Castaway Creek told me that while the lazy river is being replaced, the pool in the middle will be staying. Surprising to hear!

Surprised they don't ever run the second Batwing train . . . . at any rate, I like days where it isn't to sunny so I don't need to shut my eyes as I go up the Batwing lift hill.

And I can't wait for FF to ride Roar in cold weather :)

BW lift hill sun is seriously worse than walking there.

That's where we need a shade structure. DIck's has EZ up tents on sale. They need to buy a thousand of those. ;)

Batwing would be greatly improved by a tunnel on the lift hill. And while I'm at it, Superman: Ride of Steel would be greatly improved by putting those ringy dingy ding-a-ling dings along the straightaways like the New England counterpart has a little of.

this would be a great idea. At least put a tunnel over the straightways.

You know its the SFA thread when it is stated that a tunnel over a lift hill, and Superman symbols to fly through on a ride are considered "great improvements" :lmao:
