Good luck and I hope you get to experience Batwing with both stations running because the line certainly moves much faster when it's running both sides.

As for JJ like Coaster Fantom said the purple train is now assembled and on the transfer track,why it wasn't in operation saturday who knows because the lines were clear outside the que everytime we passed by it,hopefully multi train operation will begin sooner rather than later.

People seem to have really taken to JJ now that the OTSRs are gone. From a near walk on to lines out of the station.

does anyone know where i can see pictures of the new restraints on Joker's Jinx? Or any of the revamped Premier trains for that matter. I'd really like to see them before i visit SFA next week.

Well I'll be there with my LA Kings t-shirt on - at least in California it's a "dry heat". I knew there was some reason I moved to the west coast.

Fishy, yeah that's something that really isn't so good about Maryland - mug-g-g-g-gg-gy summer days. Hopefully, Tuesday won't be so bad for lines, or else I'm going to be an evaporating melted puddle of female programmer. I have no idea what I'm going to wear. Maybe my caffeine tee shirt. Maybe we'll see an LA Kings shirt pop up somewhere in the park tomorrow! Good luck on surviving the sun tomorrow.

The new restraints are like this.....there is a large wide lapbar that sits in your lap and part of your stomach, ALSO there is a lapbar across the top of your feet as well...they are incredible restraints, but for extra tall riders like myself, they force me to sit with my knees up high, of course im 6ft3, very few coasters are comfy to me except for inverts and B&M's sit downs :) I can assure u, they make the Premier coasters very enjoyable now.....last summer they gave the Flight of Fear at PKD the lap bar restraints, and that ride went from brutal to being at the top of my favorite list now..absolutely NO headbanging, and its a whiteknuckler...because your entire upper body is all over the place during the ride....sit at the back, the G's during the first 3 inversions are incredible.

Thanks again to our friends at PKI for re-creating the Premier spaghetti bowls. It is NO coincidence that all the other spaghetti bowls now come with lapbars instead of Advil-requiring OTSRs. The rides were intense but painful, now they are pure joy.....how many other rides can you think of that managed to double their queue lengths during their run...

I still cant belive that yall are waiting for the second train on Joker's Jinx, Poltergeist has been running both trains for about 3 weeks.

The line for Poltergeist is about the same suprisingly at SFFT, it has changed some, its gone from about a walkon alot of the time to about a 5 minute wait for the middle rows, to a 20 minute wait for the front.

People at FT understand the Go/No Go belt really well, pretty funny, because I was trying to get my cell phone situated in the seat to where i wasnt sitting on it. I had the lapbar pulled down, but was trying to take care of that, and the restraint checkers are flying down the trains getting the belts checked, and the restraints. Still kind of confusing to get out of the train, because the belt doesnt release, you have to undo it, wierd is all i can say for the first time you ride it.

I'm 6 ft1 and had no trouble fitting into the new train at all,it's a nice roomy design compared to FOF's train at PKD.

As for speeding up loading & unloading here's a little tip, when you approach the final brake run have your fingers/hands at the ready to remove your lap belt that way as soon as you roll to a final stop in the station all you have to do is wait till the lap bars are released and exit the train.

On a final note good luck to those willing to brave today's heatwave to enjoy the park,I'm sure the water park & water rides will be seeing a lot of action today.
