I was there on Sunday and every coaster was open. That is more then I can say about most six flags I go to. Only notable rides I saw closed were shazam and excalibur. Sadly I was not able to check out the water park. It was at capacity most the day
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

^ To be honest I find that Six Flags is actually pretty good about having all their coasters open. They may not be run super efficiently if you go before the peak season, but they will be open.

They put those signs up pre-emptivly. Was there a line?

Donkeys are my way of life!

I wonder why Hurricane Harbor keeps on opening later every year. It used to open up at 10:30am when the main park opened. Now it doesn’t open until 12pm.

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

Got a survey in my email today for a new name for a ride. It went from questions related to that, to a completely random local attraction question.

Went on my Florida trip last week to both Busch Gardens Tampa and Sea World Orlando. BGT was an amazing park, Sea World was eh (Mako was freaking incredible though, outside front row on that is KILLER). Mako had me thinking about our home park, as even though the ride was absolutely top notch, the fact it's just sort of sitting out in open is fairly dull. Made me really appreciate the wooded scenery and hills back home. I can only imagine what a steel coaster zipping through the dense areas of foliage and hills would be like in the back of the park.

Also, as I was enjoying the various steel rides at both parks I did find myself missing a woodie. Makes me really appreciate our collection of them.

I really hope we get a Raptor though!

I love donkeys more than me.

There was a line. Was my first time at the park. Me and my wife had flash passes and hit every coaster. We went in with lower expectations and blown away by this place. We had a great time (though it was ceazy hot)

They are switching between opening at 11 and 12 depending on day.
