Nitro - still running like a dream, walked on to last row.
El Toro - Still fast and furious, walked on to middle of train
Medusa - Still running well, walked on to front row.
Did some walking around the park as well - the park now has these new machines at various locations where you can get your cell phone, plug into one of the various battery-charging plugs, and pay $2 for a 15 minute charge to your phone - I imagine that will be popular for the cell phone-toting park-goers.
They now also have "Cabana Cove" - where you can rent "cabanas" in one section of the park, near the entrance to the now-closed Old Country by the front of the park - it pretty much consists of two or three chairs with nice padding, foot rests, and screens and a tent-like roof surrounding it - I didn't catch any prices or length of times for rentals - but it looks like it could be a nice getaway of sorts for those who want to relax a bit from the heat.
They also had a new mini-golf game over near the entrance to Movie World - $5 for a put from any of the closer distances to try to win a prize - the interesting part is the $10 "Mega-Putt" game - you start from 10 ft, if you make the putt, you move back to 20, then 30, then 40, and if you make all those, then you can try to hit from 50 ft., and if you hit from 50 feet, then you can win either a Nintendo Wii, iPod, or a "personal transporter" a.k.a. smaller version of a Segway - going to be a popular game, I imagine.
Also, it's weird to walk right through the empty area where the Tepee once was - now it's a big, empty, unused area - my idea would be to set up a stage over near the fence by the log flume, and have a concert "pre-show" out there, or a few smaller opening acts out there before a big concert in the Northern Star Arena. Just a thought.
As for suits, I wasn't really paying that much attention, but saw a couple important-looking people.
