I agree about the parking lot being resurfaced that was soo needed. When we were there in December in the handicap lot it was so bad that you could see two different sets of lines. I parked in what looked like a spot. It was early so it was right by the guy that stops foot traffic for the trams on the corner. He sat and watched us all get out of the car and then told me I had to move the car when he was within shouting distance the whole time. Next I do not know what the answer is but there is an issue with the trams. If the parking lot has been open long enough to move acouple of stops down every single tram that stops by the handicap spots is already full. This is not that big of a deal for me because I am addicted to theme parks and I know I am going to be in serious pain from walking anyways so the distance from the lot to the front gate is not much more. I feel for the people that are in worse shape maybe planning on renting a wheelchair in the park and can not get on a tram for the life of them. Thank god I just had lap band surgery and am already feeling next to no pain( And yes my main reason for having the surgery is to be able to fit on more than just Goliath, Revolution, and Viper!). Sorry I went long but it feels good to get the parking lot thoughts off my

They didn't really "resurface" the parking lot, they really just "painted" it. :lolr:

Hey, paint is a surface. ;)

Finally, new park maps. SFMM desperatly needed them anyways. Also, while reading MiceAge I came aross a Knott's Photo TR that says something pretty funny (takes place during the stunt show):
However, there was one moment in the show well worth repeating. When the good guys caught the head bad guy they told him

"We are going to send you to the place that all hardened criminals go"

His response.

"You mean I'm going to Six Flags ???"

Good update. The Wii station looks very nice. Did you by chance pick up a 2007 park map, if so could you take a picture of it and post it here?

Did they use the new entrance? And did they put anything up around the Psyclone site?
