Saw you Kara...I was on the second to last ride of Timbers. You had your WT shirt on. I had an Eastern Michigan swearshirt. Was going to say something to ya, but wasn't sure it was you until I went in at closing to get my pass redone. Your picture came up on the screen and I said "hey that's Kara!" and the gal said " yep ".

ST didn't lose a step in the off-season, still packs a punch and has phenomenal airtime. I thought WW faired well with the new timbers as well. It felt much smoother to me and it didn't sling me all over the place. Corkie felt smooth as well with that new paint job.

The park does look great, and it will get even better as more landscaping is completed. That was definately not our park from last year. Two thumbs up CF....good job!

Gotta go watch the news....

I've just seen the future...what was I saying?

I thought that ST Chick was the one with the Wicked Twister shirt on (counter kinda gave me a hint) I was going to say hi but I never got a chance, because my friend wanted to eat then he had to use the restroom, then you wern't in line when we got back, but I saw you on the 3rd to last train............I had the dark blue Lucky Brand shirt on with a blue type dress shrit over it.

Timbers was still good as usal but did anyone else ride the bumper cars? I did and they pack a punch, if you hit someone going fairly fast you almost fly out of the car. (You should of saw the two kids that hit head on, ouch).

The new track section on Wolverine Wild Cat ran quite well and smooth un-like the other half of the ride.

I was also on the second to last train MI Trooper.

Yeah I saw ya. Didn't know it was you. We went on WW at the same time too....you and your friend went to the back so I turned and went up to the front. That was the last WW ride of the day....I then made a bee-line for Corkie and was the lone rider for the last ride on it as well.

I thought about going on corkscrew after WW, but we decide to hit the bumper cars for one last smash-a-thon.

Does anybody know when the Go-Karts will be up (and Ripcord for that matter)?

from hearing the ride ops talk, I think they were geting to ride Ripcord after the park closed, so I image it should be soon. Not sure on Go-Karts, but I'll give em a whrill when they open.
