It was a cool day and decided to visit Hurricane Harbor for the first time. (With a little prompting from Edward. ) At first I was pretty impressed but that declined as the day went on.
I honestly forgot I was at Six Flags. This was so new and unfamiliar, as well as surprisingly nice.
Just some random photos. Loved the weather rock.
My one complaint would be the price of lockers.
I didn't want to take any chances so I paid the $17 for a two bag locker. Personally, I could barely fit my single bag in it. But it did fit.
It may have been luck. But the lines for food weren't nearly as in Harbor as it was in the dry park. I may walk into Harbor simply to get food in the future.
Throughout my 3 hour visit, I went on all of the slides. The slides in Riptide Bay probably hurt the most, but were also the most thrilling.
It seemed as though there was an entrance straight to Hurricane Harbor. I say it open, but closed around noon.
Making my way out of Harbor and back into the dry park.
The Scenic Railway was running empty.
Now taking a look at Hometown Park. The carriages are on the flat ride.
This was the first time I had seen Demon Funnel Cakes and Snacks open for the year.
More flat rides in Homtown Park.
The 40th season has brought some of my favorites back. These include Screams and Dreams, as well as The original Marriott Model.
Passing through Carousel Plaza, as well as parts of Orleans, I make my way towards Superman. I would include an update on Condor but virtually nothing changed and this report is becoming pretty lengthy as is.
There were several nice things about my experience with Superman. The first is the Single Rider Line was open. This is always nice to cut down on times, especially since I don't care who or where I sit and I'm often by myself anyways. Second, there was finally a posted security officer by the switchbacks. I applaud the park for doing this. It's a simple fix to a simple problem, I can not tell you how many people would line jump right there. Finally, I waited all of 5 minutes for my ride. Granted there weren't any other Single Riders in front of me.
I have changed (or rather expanded) my thoughts about the ol' Cajun location. I still think it's possible that a year round maze could be new for 2016, but it was more obvious as a promotional display than a hint. The Halloween Theme was playing and fog would be puffed out every now and then from a machine. Once again, not starting rumors but word is that a Larson Loop will go there next year. Either honestly seem plausible.
I stopped for Lunch in Yankee Harbor. The Meatball Sandwich has been added to the Dining Pass as of this year, so I decided to get one. It wasn't worth the ten extra minutes, but it was nice to change it up a little bit.
I'm not sure as to what extent, but it's obvious that the tunnel on Demon was being worked on.
As of the moment, these Deli tickets have replaced Boarding passes on Raging Bull and Goliath. They have caused to be problematic, as not everybody remembers to grab them. Also they jam and honestly cause more trouble than they're worth. Who knew humans actually work better than machines?
The queue in full, including the Overflow Queue. The interesting thing is that Single Rider was open earlier in the day and was now closed.
These statues aren't new but they haven't been in the public's view for a while. I certainly enjoyed them!
In conclusion: I had the best visit this year. The water park was a nice change from constant coasters. I highly recommend the dining pass, It includes two meals and one snack per visit.
Finally I leave you with some food for thought. (pun not originally attended) The Johnny Rockets shakes have been added to the Dining Pass as a snack. Sooo, Chocolate or Vanilla
