I'm going to start off by reminded everybody that selfie sticks are not allowed at Six Flags Great America and I'm pretty sure at all Six Flags affiliated parks.
Dameon Nelson, Director of Park Operations was overlooking the morning crowd.
American Eagle was running both sides, even with the recent painting.
I used to denounce anybody that said American Eagle needed a repaint.
But it does look pretty amazing. Well the parts that have been repainted.
I guess there's a new beam that was added last minute. Or they skipped over it.
Roaring Rapids rafts were sitting behind Kidzopolis
Kidzopolis offers up Gluten Free Meals, Snacks, and Slurpees. It recently reopened. As tempting as it was I passed up on this opportunity
The standard pretzel and soda stand has been replaced by a SnoCone Machine.
Goliath's standby queue was too long for my liking to wait alone. And Single Rider would've been just as bad. So I took the train instead.
I shot this from the back of the Six Flags Railroad in the County Fair station. I feel like Goliath's airtime hill is underrated and under appreciated.
So now some stills of the airtime hill.
The Train provides some great unique views, these include American Eagle and Blue sides Helix, as well as Demon's inversions and queue line. Not to mention the Hall of Justice.
Departing in Hometown Square, I decided to see if Sky Trek Tower was open since I had yet to go on it for the 2016 season.
Sky Trek was temporarily unavailable but was testing so with nothing better to do I waited it out and got on the first ride as it reopened.
I didn't take any individual shots but did manage to get this decent panorama of the park. I was too busy taking in the views for myself.
A random temporary queue rail has been added to Rue Le Dodge. I'm guessing this is to keep the crowds more contained. Otherwise like with many flat rides, it's a mad rush to get a seat and you just hope everybody in your party makes it on the same cycle.
Dark Knight was about 90 minutes if not more. I just found it interesting that the catwalks from Theatre Royale could be seen with the flood lights on.
These ads in Wayne Central Station are rarely appreciated because the line doesn't get that long anymore. I have no idea who would've waited that long if it's past the preshow, thats too long for me.
There wasn't a line for Loggers Run once I meet up with my friends, but i skipped out. It was too dark for me to ride. I know the point of a flume is to get wet, but I also want to be dry by the time I leave. There's nothing worse than chaffing at an amusement park.
With Fiddler's Fling obviously not open, that left ERT with Goliath and Revolution.
Towards the end of the night, Viper was a complete walkon.
Justice League was our last ride with a full interior queue but went by quickly. The unfortunate part is my sports bottle was swiped during this ride.
The ERT was a huge success as we rode Goliath over a dozen times and once on Revolution in two hours.
