Good news from the Lone Star State...

Fiesta Texas reported to ACE that Iron Rattler reopened at 4pm, CDT today...w0000t!

Not sure what this means for Giant, if anything....but our Labor Day Tejas adventure just got this much hotter..

Hm....What day are y'all doing FT?

Sweet, now things are looking up for our adventure.

Not sure on the itinerary yet. Gator, we need to talk!

The Bahn schedule dictates a weekend day if we wanted the old section of the park (literally a no-brainer, which works well for me..*wink*). The trip is Jill's birthday weekend, and her desire to go back there is so strong she's willing to put up with 3 days of me at SFFT and SFoT.

Monday is definitely SFoT, since we fly out of Dallas around dinnertime, get home very late, and in class Tuesday morning from a relaxing(?) vacation trip. If NTG gets back up (seems increasingly likely), I'd really like to get as much SFoT on Sunday as reasonably possible. I freakin' LOVE that park...even if Shockwave won't be running.

Is Shockwave still down? Shows how much I pay attention.

Pictures of seatbelt s on rattler appear on another site I won't mention here.

I was telling some friends that adding a seatbelt to the cars would be the easiest fix.

Very happy about this as we are set to be there next Sunday. Now only if NTG would come back up. Still bummed that Shockwave is down though.

Well we knew they had been ordered almost immediately.

What we didn't know, was all the red tape and legal mumbo jumbo they'd have to go through.

Lori, I'm hoping for you folks that need to ride that NTG will be open. I don't see Shockwave up and running for a bit, sadly. If NTG is also down, I may skip the Dallas part of our trip and just stay in San Antonio, or go to Houston.

Since you also already have the ApolloAndy credit and a lunch rollback?

Go to Kemah Boardwalk, you won't be disappointed! ;)

I have the Andy credit at that park too!

I know I should be happy that I've got the ApolloAndy credit (and a bunch of Teckno credits) and a launch rollback, but man it sure would be nice to get the NTG credit also. Not like TX is just an hours drive. I've got the Shockwave credit, but Jordan doesn't. Sucks to be her.

Is an Andy credit anything like a spin on Moosh: The Ride?

Friday, August 16, 2013 6:01 PM

No but a luch rollback credit is kinda like that, right, Andy? ;-)

Saturday, August 17, 2013 1:54 PM

I don't know what you and Moosh did, but I hear the experience is very different.

Saturday, August 17, 2013 10:28 PM

I hope I never get the lunch rollback credit, especially of the lime slushy variety. ;-)

Really bummed Shock Wave is gonna be down, especially if NTG doesn't reopen in time. Why can't Titan be closed instead? ;-)

Saturday, August 17, 2013 10:44 PM

Because if it were, those of us with taste would have no reason to visit. ;)

Saturday, August 17, 2013 11:12 PM

As much as I love me some Titan, I still may skip if Giant is closed.
