Well this was unexpected! Cool. I really enjoy the three I've ridden (Spider, Undertow, and Laff Trakk), especially Spider since it runs almost trimless, but nonetheless these are fun rides and a great addition to a park like Adventureland.

It has not opened yet however the coaster itself is constructed and I saw five cars are on the track. I was at the park today and was able to take a video of it from the train. I have heard from some workers that it may be open around June 6th.

It is not likely that Phoenix will be open when you are visiting. Crowds aren’t that bad at all, and the only attractions you may find a line for are Raging River, Sawmill splash, monster, and space shot. Even then, probably only a 10-20 minute wait.

Going to the park for the first time since 1990(!!) tomorrow (Monday, June 24th). I'm looking forward to the geeky stuff I didn't care about when I was a little guy, like sky rides and transport rides. Blame it on Planet Coaster... In addition to the coasters. Loved Tornado back then, sure I'll love it now. Always loved Cobb coasters, not many around today.

Anyone have any tips for getting to everything in one day? What's a nice place to eat in the park?

Speaking of Adventureland, is Phoenix close to opening? I remember them saying June when it was announced.

^^ When I went to the park a few years ago, I found Tornado to be unbearably rough. Hopefully it will be more enjoyable now.

I saw that Adventureland is completely smoke-free. No smoking sections. Good for them. There’s something a little funny about it too.

At a rest stop on the way... smoking was only allowed in your closed car. Also funny. My have things changed. Go Iowa.
