I was there Sunday and it was CRAZY busy for Coney. I've never seen even half that many people there before. The garbage cans were overflowing everywhere. I didn't bother riding either of the new credits as the Mouse had about a 90 minute wait alone. Cyclone was pushing people through well with two trains though. I grabbed a couple of laps in the last row including a free re-ride courtesy of Jimvid. Thanks again buddy!

They still have some rides to finish up including the first of its kind Air Race and finishing touches on the theming and setting up permanent queues. I look forward to returning this summer once it's finished. The lighted Luna Park sign is stunning already and it's not even complete yet.
