I really hope they find room for it. I miss that whole lumber jack theme back when the log flume was around.

If that's the case, I'll be sure to get some last rides on it.

The forecast looks perfect tomorrow to visit the park. Consistent light rain all day and 60 degree weather, aka no lines.

Does SFNE still have the sling shot by the Tea Cups or has it already been relocated?

I teach at the school of donkey!

It's still currently there. It will also need to be moved to fit the new ride.

I stopped by the park today to validate my 2018 season passes and get some rides in since I figured the park would be dead. I was correct on the latter as I have never seen the park this empty before.

Unfortunately the lack of crowds was to my detriment today. We arrived at 2:45 since we saw the forecast had the rain stopping around 4-5. We figured the park would close early around 7 or 8. The park did close early, but earlier than I expected at 4.

I don't fault the park for closing early but I wish they made the announcement they were closing at 4 sooner than 3:45. We were over by Wicked Cyclone when we heard that so we had to run across the park to get on Superman. Otherwise we would have missed it today and that would have been a bummer having driven 2 hours.

Everything was running 1 train, but we got on Wicked Cyclone twice, Superman twice, and Pandemonium once since nothing had a line. The crew at Wicked Cyclone's crew was painfully slow and spent more time socializing than checking restraints. Superman's crew hauled trains out so fast we were able to fit 2 rides in.

Afterwards we stopped at Nicky's Pizza down the road. I have to stop there after every visit. For $15 we got 2 orders of fries, 2 jumbo slices of pizza, and a gyro. And it was all good too!

Goliath was of course closed.

We got a ride across from 2 small kids. We spun like crazy.

Lines were like this for the hour we were there.

I have memories as a little kid getting pizza at Nicky's before hitting the park, great pizza!

Labor Day weekend in general is pretty busy for the park since it's the last big summer weekend. Considering the perfect weather today and how cruddy it was yesterday (what few people there got rainchecks to return), I expect it to be pretty crowded.

^^^ This s why I appreciate my homepark Carowinds. They will not close for rain, not even a thunderstorm. Fury325, Intimidator, Afterburn, Drop Zone and Windseeker yes if lightning is present other than that the park stays open. Nothing like watercstinging you face going 95mph on Fury325. Luckily there some great shows to enjoy and few flats under a rooftop. I think the park realizes it's patrons and season pass holders don't care about rain. RIDE ON!!
