Dude. Batman yesterday. What. The. HELL.

Honestly with the warm temps, muggy air and slick tracks everything in the park was running like I've never experienced, notably our ride on Superman. Mother of god, I've never felt a ride like that on a flyer. Full black out during the pretzel loop. And Joker was buck wild, Nitro was absolutely flying (we got a ride in a completely foggy downpour before leaving that was just unreal), Dark Knight was running with almost no trims, even Skull Mountain was in rare form. Lantern looked like it was hauling as as well but we didn't go near that POS.

It was a great day for riding if you didn't mind a little mist and light rain, place was empty, all rides a walkon (except the Sky Way, of course) and they stayed open and ran everything til at least 8:15 when we left. Took tons of photos. Report forthcoming, a little preview:

^Oh trust me, if I drove I would probably go weekly on my days off, but I just tag along with them. :(

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I'm thinking of stopping into Holiday in the Park tomorrow. Is Cyborg still temperamental or do they finally have it running consistently?

I'm looking forward to taking advantage of the best winter weather policy ever (aka Visual Scan and all clear) to get some rides on B&Ms in sub-freezing temperatures.

Nope, it's still a piece of sh*t. :lol:

It's a fun ride when it works though.

Great Adventure tends to go through flats like mormons go through wives, haha. Remember back in like 1999 when they added 20+ rides only to have like 75% of them removed over the next few years? With the super loop being ripped out so soon and Cyborg being a lawn ornament, history may repeat itself.
