It was brought to my attention last year that Chiapas in the snow is a thing and it's now on my bucket list. :lol:

I also heard that this park has some little multi-launch coaster thing with some rocks around it but like... whatever. Priorities...

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

I've been to Phantasialand this Saturday (I have pictures but hey bring 0 value as it's mostly the wall) and I have to say the wall was a lot smaller then expected. Anyways I thought it blended in perfectly in the environment of the Fantasy theme. I start to wonder if at the start of next season we can walk up to the wall as that part seems very far.
Also I just can across a picture of some yellow marker tape at the Berlin Rookburgh passage, People assume there might be an announcement soon at that end, curious about that.

All around the world they laugh at us and our lack of amusement parks in cold weather! I have ridden Splash Mountain in the snow in Tokyo! (Along with a BUNCH of roller coasters) The German's are strong too! Europe in general...I mean the amount of speedos we saw in water parks in 65 degrees always amazes me!

Here in the US, you have to wonder if a park will even open in inclement weather. In Europe, you have to still ask if you need a skip-the-line pass.

Even on a 'dead day' because a powerful snowstorm caused severe disruption of the subways and most rides closed in the morning (even a parade cancellation) during it making most of the guests leave, this thing still had a 40 min line on a cold night in February once people started re-entering the park in the evening.

I wonder how Southern Californians feel now considering they thought it was too cold to ride Splash Mountain when it was 65 degrees and sunny.

^ Considering Disneyland's Splash Mountain is now for some (awful) reason wetter than a rapids ride, I don't think they mind.

For most of my rides on Splash this past weekend, I was alone in the back and didn't get more than a few splashes. On my one ride with a full log (I'd say everyone was in the 150-200 pound range), I also rode in the back and only got a few splashes. Grizzly got me far wetter.

However, the sacrificial lamb in row 1 came off drenched.

Oh man, I love the single rider line and all, but when the ride op says I "got lucky" and to take row 1 I scream internally and pray my shoes are spared.
