It was neat to watch them install the trains two Sundays ago. Boy do I miss my Sky Whirl........
And WHO is the idiot that decided to leave Demon and a couple stalls at a dead end??? Granted the park was a simple circle when it opened, and now it is once again, but it's annoying watching all those people head down that path only to find a wall.......wondering what the #$@*! is going on! I love my park, I hate my park, I love my park......GRRRRR. ------------- This really is a GREAT America www.angelfire.com/oh4/tk173
I agree. Bad planning on the parks part on this one. Granted, the park is once again in a complete circle (well sort of).
I also believe that Demon's attendance has actually dropped becuase of this. With the old layout, one would walk right by the demon enterance. Now, you have to "double back" to get to it. Since most people don't know that, they just follow the crowd, most people will not go back that way, and then miss demon.
The reason I got told on opening day from many park officials is that "People had a problem finding the Southwest Territory". Well, I'm guessing now that these same people are having a problem finding demon.
Oh well. Hopefully the wall will come down. Speaking of the wall, where will the trolls live during Fright Fest? That was their bridge! :-)
Again, glad to see that Deja Vu is testing. I've been told that it won't be ready until Oct 6th. So, no Deja Vu this weekend at the park, or for the buyouts between now and Oct 6th.
Actually, according to an Iron Wolf op, the wall is there because they blocked off the path with that kiddie bungee jump ride. So to bring the wall down, they'd have to take that thing out or build around it. It's really, really annoying though. ----------------- Loopscrew.com: Your brand new, and only, editorial based coaster site! 6/8/01
NO, the real reason is similar to what Arrow Guy said. They wanted to keep the park so you could go around in a circle and see everything in the park. It has nothing to do with the kiddie bungee jump ride. It is simply to put the park back the way it was before Southwest Territory was added. I also agree it has dropped Demon's line considerably. When Deja Vu opens end of this month that will create a LOT more traffic in that area and Demon will have a line once again. Then you can hear the Demon song more!!!!
So do the company buyouts usually result in a packed park? I just called the office, they told me I could get in with a season pass, but where unsure if the park was going to be crowded. Thanks -Patrick
