Enthusiasts TAKE NOTE

According to the article the park's ride section will be closed on Monday thru Thursday until the end of September. I am glad I saw this before taking a two hour trip to the park to ride the Starliner. I know I wouldn't be happy with this if I had a season pass and wanted to ride the coaster while in the area.

The gardens are beautiful, but as an enthusiast my main reason for visiting the park are the coasters. I know they are trying to win back seniors but alienating the other segment (the ride loving people) is not a good idea, even if it is just for a few weeks.*** This post was edited by OlympicParkFan 9/4/2007 11:56:59 PM ****** This post was edited by OlympicParkFan 9/4/2007 11:58:23 PM ***
