It was a good day today. There were barely any lines for anything. Superman's blue train is finally back and running good. It only had about a 15 minute wait today. I rode it 7 times today, 4 in the back. As for Batwing, the station is coming along nicely. I saw some workers up on the loop, probably just tightining some bolts. Some workers were also on the lift, probably working on the reclining process. As for the rest of the coasters, they were all running great. I was suprised to see every ride open with every train working for every ride.

Wow...every ride AND every train running is extremely rare for Six Flags. I don't remember seeing that before, even at SFGAm last summer on the weekends. And excuse my ignorance, but what is the Batwing going to be? I've heard a little about it...I've assumed it will be B&M's version of the flying coaster, but I didn't think that was happening this year.
PLEASE READ: This post wasn't meant to offend or anger anyone; I apologize in advance if it does. So please don't post a reply just to rant about it. :)

Batwing is a Vekoma Flying Dutchman similar to stealth. It's a little different since it has outward corkscrews and a dual station for better capacity.

Whoa! Caps overload there! Anyhoo, its good to hear that S:ROS is up and running as well as ever, as well as running full capacity on other rides also. I'm glad they have all the kinks worked out, as I'm making my first trip of the season(stupid school and such) next Sun.
Hmmm, last year, S:ROS was structurally complete on opening day, April 15, and it took them about a month to open it. If Batwing is just getting to that stage..........no, I'm not going to say anything. ;)

I'll have to agree with someone above, please for the love of God, or something like that, turn off the caps locks! Take a look at everyone else's posts on this site. Notice that no one is using all caps? There's a reason; it's very, very hard to read and it's the same as shouting if you were talking. I had a great time today. No lines, blue & red train running on S:ROS, great employee attitude, and mild tempatures. As for the maintenance people (that's what they're called not handyman) when Superman setup today maintenance was on site in less than two minutes. There were also about 7 people who came to handle the "crisis". The ride was running again in about 20-30 minutes. Damn computers. By the way for all the haters as the young kids like to say, Batwing opens May 26.
