Yeah, it was unseasonably cold in the northeast yesterday.

While temps in the mid 30's usually won't keep people away from the parks in late December, it generally does in late November when people know that they can likely wait a few days and visit when it's 20 degrees warmer.

Crowds at Great Adventure and New England were on the lighter side also (though Great Adventure was more respectable with Justice League actually hitting 35 minutes). By park close it was down to almost 20 degrees at GA and likely not much warmer at SFA (and yes, the coasters were open :lol: ).

Yeah, it was low to mid 30s. The good news is that it was not windy. Big shopping day yesterday too; I'm sure that kept some out.

3 coasters (Roar, Wild One, Mind Eraser), and Fireball were open. ;)

A fun, very hype group was re-riding Roar for a long time. Daughter finally had enough, as she could no longer feel her cheeks..lol.. the group kept riding.

Just a heads up. The line to get in is a little bit ridiculous right now. Great weather.

We went in Friday at about 4:30, rode everything, ate, and were out at 6:30. RC was closed. ROAR was its usual good cold weather self. Even hopped on ME and managed to not get my bell rung. Creek area looks great but ME was dark. So, a rare season when I actually rode both Apocalypse and ME. Longest lines were for Santa and the bumper cars (ride ops and dumb people, I can never understand people that loop that "seatbelt" around their throats).

Good pictures already posted, thanks. It is amazing how a park that struggles so mightily with theming can rock holiday lights. I guess it is easy to light all of the trees when there are only 10 of them. Honestly just the right number of people for me. Not a ghost town but very light.

It does seem that they are mainly open to sell brown water and S'mores.

Has anyone been seeing the hacking that is going on at multiple parks. Tell me if you see anything 'weird' in the attached pic. :lmao:

I happen to love Batman: The Ultimate Brand Experience! My favorite parts are the corporate synergy inversions and character exposure marketing campaign helix!

I think the reason that Six Flags Holiday in the Park events are so good is that they really have nothing to do with the lights aside from writing a check to Oak Island Creative and letting them handle it.

Is the Apocalypse to Firebird transformation supposed to come with a new paint scheme? Or will the current one be retained?

I really hope they at least paint the big gray and orange B&M as part of this "transformation" :lol:

99% sure there will be a new paint job, but it likely won't come until the spring. Baynum Painting did the original paint job for the ride when they brought it in from SFGAm and I'm guessing they will do the repaint for this transformation. Baynum keeps a pretty active blog and FB page which will likely have pics of the work in progress (as SFA is usually pretty slow with posting any construction/improvement photos).
