If I remember correctly, Last Stand Tacos did NOT honor the dining pass either, so that plus Johnny Rockets adding the plan is a double win!

I just swallowed a whole donkey!

That is correct, LST was NOT on the dining plan.

They have to bring back the fire effect for Firebird. I’ll be disappointed if they don’t but not surprised. Maybe SFA should’ve invested in the trains with the vest restraints because there will probably still be headbanging after the corkscrew. I wish someone would have asked if they ever considered getting new trains for minderaser.

The applause for the bathroom was great.

Replacing stunt arena roof. I guess they plan to use it and is certainly a clue that they aren't tearing it down. They may have a plan to use it for more than Awakening.

Fire bird theming will have greenery. Actually planting trees! "Wish we had more trees." HAHAHAHAHAHA! I'm getting so many of my low expectation wishes.

Skull mountain is staying but can't promise the fire effect. They started the Firebird conversion as far back as 2017. Interesting stuff.
Meister Brau just wants a path from CC to SM at SFA, meal plan burrito, some shade, and a restroom back there.

The stunt arena is the one by the Cyclone. The stage in Gotham is where they do the Awakening.

One pretty interesting thing they mentioned in the video: That funky bootleg support on Apocalypse was made like that to account for the different clearance requirements for the floorless conversion. The original support would have been a bit too close according to the speaker.

Makes me want to look at a lot of how it was a couple of years ago, then compare it to last.

O. You're right. I still remember way back when they did the Batman show in there.
