Grid is the Earth-3 (Crime Syndicate) counterpart of Cyborg. He's basically Bizarro Cyborg, but he's not. He resembles some skull robot thing. And he has the sexiest voice. At least to me.

mary.pesik, this is the 3rd time I have posted a quote of yours on the "Dumbest things Ever said on TPR Thread". As of right now, there are literally 3 on the same page. You don't think that you should improve how you conduct yourself on TPR? Nobody cares about the specifics of the Cyborg franchise here. We don't want to hear from cringey 16 year old fangirls. We just want to talk about the park and its attractions.

Donkeys give me orgiastic scream!

Basically. She keeps talking about how "sexy" the characters and their voice actors are. Not even just 1 or 2 posts. Like, way too much about obsessing over her fictional crushes when people just want to talk about the park. Just check out the past handful of pages to see what I mean.

Dude, she's a kid, just move on. Yeah, what she's saying is annoying and irrelevant to the topic at hand, but your increasingly obsessive mad-on for her is every bit as disruptive and, frankly, inappropriate. I posted tons of stupid things on message boards when I was sixteen, and even when I look back at some of those archived posts, the only thing more childish than my posts were the overly angry adult posters who would not let go of how bad my posts were.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Let’s just all leave her alone now but this message board is for SFNE discussion, not DC Comics

Not gonna lie....I’m more of a Marvel dude just cuz MCU movies are killing it compared to DCEU stuff but when it comes to SFNE it doesn’t really matter to me....I just need to know if Supe and WC and Batman and Riddler are running fast and hot.....that’s all that really matters....

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Since I didn't make it to opening weekend, I couldn't pass up the chance to visit today with such beautiful weather. A lot of people did the same; this was easily the most packed I've ever seen the park before Memorial Day.

As previously mentioned in this thread, Chop Six replaced Panda Express. While I personally am not a fan of Chinese food, I definitely support there being another restaurant included with the meal plan.

Mobile ordering wasn't quite ready to go on the mobile app, but they promise it's coming soon. I'm really intrigued to see how well it's implemented since it works like a dream at Disney.

No more Panda Express.


The former Hall of Justice is bare outside of a banner advertising the new Cyborg ride. Based on the park's recent track record I fully expect them to have this open right around Memorial Day weekend.

Rumor has it, the ride is inside and testing. The building still needs the signage added.


Also new for 2019... Goliath has a brand new rehab sign. The colors really pop and the wrench icon is a nice touch.

Another year, another year with Goliath closed.

Fancy new rehab sign.


If you preferred the old one, rest assured you can still find it by the ride's exit.

Or all you traditionalists can find the old one by the exit.


Technically the ride would be able to run today considering it's an unseasonably warm 75 degrees, but the train isn't even on the track and I spotted some rails lying on the ground next to the ride.

Note the rails on the ground.


Superman and Wicked Cyclone were really cranky today. Superman went down for 2-3 hours this afternoon and Wicked Cyclone kept opening and closing non-stop.

But both were riding very well. Superman tends to run noticeably slower in the spring and fall, but it absolutely hauls in the summer. I'm happy to say this is the fastest I've seen it run this time of year. Ungodly airtime in the first half and very strong pops in the second half.

Plus Superman's crew was flying today. I think the supervisor was a fellow coaster enthusiast (he recognized my Copperhead Strike shirt) and he was telling everyone the train would leave in 45-50 seconds. And for the most part, the crew was ready to send the next train out when the previous one hit the brakes.

Wicked Cyclone was running great as well. It's easy to tell when this ride is running quick since you get a powerful burst of air entering the brake run. I still think Wicked Cyclone is the park's best overall ride, but a front row on Superman beats it.

Because the two headliners were having so much downtime, I finished in the South End. I honestly can't remember the last time I did that, but Harley Quinn is arguably the park's best flat and I do enjoy Joker, Batman, and Riddler.

Such a pretty sky.


Overall it was a good day even though crowds and uptime weren't quite what I hoped for. The most surprising thing for me today was how fast dispatches were. And I found a Road Runner plush.

Being stuck in this lot gave me time to write this. I forgot just how long it takes to get out of this lot on a busy day. It took me over an hour.

They seem to be running a different type of wheels on Superman this season as these ones are yellow instead of the normal blue ones. And I very much agree it’s running faster now than I can ever remember it this early in the year. If it keeps up come summer time the thing will be an absolute rocket ship.

Any guesses about when Goliath gets out of rehab?

What's with the donkeys anyway?

@Canobie Coaster, I think that was me who recognized your shirt! Not a supervisor though, just simply a team member. Thanks so much for mentioning our operations. It's still early in the season, so no crew is going to be perfect, but we're trying our best, and the announcements to when the train will be leaving are definitely helping speed thing up. As for the park being pack, I was shocked at how busy it was, as one week before, Superman barely had a line! Thanks again for the nice words about the Superman crew!
208 Feet Up, 221 Feet Down. If you're not scared, you should be. Enjoy your ride on Superman.
