Thanks for all the coverage! I always love seeing the lead cars.

And that hamster wheel add-on to the SBF Visa spinner looks bizarre in a good way.

I can't wait for day 2! Some highlights for me is the Iron Gwazi car, garfield animatronics going to Six Flags China, and the full version of Axis. I seriously hope a park buys Axis for 2021!
