According to this article (Source : http://www.attractionsmanagement.com/index.cfm?pagetype=news&codeID=340787 ) the changes listed are coming to all three parks. This means that it is likely that Darien Lake will also receive some theming upgrades of some sort and new paint. Now, whether that means new paint for coasters and buildings is not confirmed. Neither does it confirm if IPs will be involved with the theming. But apparently, there will be something in those regards.

I had to drive out to Rochester today and drove past the park on my way. I could not see any work that has taken place at all. In that statement, they said new paint and a new sign out front, but at this time none of those appear to have started.

A zonkey is a cross between a zebra and a donkey.

Do you care about visiting other SF Waterparks or various discounts? If no, then Season Pass is your best bet. Otherwise, membership.

If you scroll down towards the bottom of this page you'll see a handy chart comparing your options.

They don't open for another two and a half months. A new sign out front and some painting would take a week at most, even for Six Flags.

You DL fanboys are something else, I tell you...

Id guess the weather would be a minor factor.... :)

^ :lmao: Exactly.

This, and the Skyscreamer can be put up really fast, so it isn't gonna be constructed on anytime soon, the only construction you'll see is Twister being removed.
Darien Lake is my home park. :kiss:

Any idea when in the year SFA opened their starflyer, since that's probably the best estimate of when this one will open.
1. El Toro :airtime: 2. El Toro :airtimer: 3. El Toro :airtime: 4. El Toro :airtimer: --- I'm not good at ranking...
