Six Flags Darien Lake’s response to “no music in the park” is my favorite quick fix ever:

Are they playing music?

^ they were only by the SkyScreamer and yes they were playing music - but it was only an hour or so long playlist because as I’d walk over there I had to of heard the same song at least 3 times over the course of the half day I was there

Its probably likely those were just set up for the special ceremony they had for the opening earlier that day, right?

^ I wouldn’t be surprised, but the weird thing about them was their placement. The opening ceremony bit happened in front of the ride, with refreshments and what not closer to Tin Lizzy’s. These speakers were off by the camping entrance and motocoaster. This would make me think at bare minimum they had another set up by the ride itself, or something like that, as those speakers wouldn’t have made for a great PA system with where they were

I can't imagine those would stay out too long, those aren't speakers that would do all to well in poor weather, but it's nice they had some music going yesterday at least.

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!

There is already a POV of Sky Screamer up.




Not gonna lie, this may be the first time in about a decade I have been legit intimidated by a ride. Slingshot towards the front of the park doesn't even bother me that much. But there is something about watching this pov knowing that they are being held up 200 feet in the air by chains. Does it feel as bad as it looks? Maybe I'm wrong?

^ Call me odd ( ! ) but I have done the swings in Orlando and was fine with it. A bit unnerving, but overall quite pleasant. However, All the Cedar Fair Windseekers I have been on freak me out. I am not sure what it is, maybe on Windseekers I can feel myself sliding in the seat, and at 300 feet, shivers. ( and their early record of breakdowns, that high up, evac equipment nearby, ugh) Where as on the swings with chains my butt stays firmly planted , I dunno.

This my first time on one. It runs two cycles, all the way up at one speed, comes down 3/4 of the way and goes back up at a higher speed. Everything becomes a blur at that point.

Noticed some new stand signage, specifically the funnel cake stand by Silver Bullet and a few others.

As far as todays ride closures, no surprises.

And for the record, the Predator re-track is too small a section to make it enjoyable. Its only the last curve and it seems as though they did it to slow it down a bit.
