Fixed that for you.
Terror Twister II is the best teacups name ever.

Just Googled that, and that is amazing. Love it.

I've only ever been to SFGAm in the summer, and also one visit in the winter in 7 degree weather for Goliath construction tour. From what it looks like, though, they're doing a good job with their special events in the fall/winter.

HITP Trip Report

Today was my first ever HITP visit and it was great. The park did a very good job decorating the park. I was able to on every coaster and thrill ride that was open twice. Overall the park wasn’t too busy even though the weather was nice. I can’t wait to get to the park in December after today.

My mind was blown by the images and videos from Great America. The fact that they made a light tree on the drop tower and then pixel mapped it to coordinate with the (also pixel mapped) lights that totally surround Chubasco is ridiculously cool. I feel like if people show up on a day where every outdoor coaster is unable to run they'll still walk away loving this event (plus they still have flats, Chubasco, Justice League and Dark Knight).

Also even though I'd imagine it's one train ops across the board it was awesome to see Raging Bull hit 70 minutes. The fact that people turned up to the event on a 50 degree night is hardly proof of concept but everyone should be happy with what they saw yesterday.

Frontier Airlines, if you're listening hit us with one of those $15 sales to O'Hare, please and thank you. :lol:
