Before hitting the water park we first rode S:ROS. They had both the red and blue trains running. Very slow loading with the new restraints. The modified restraints really aren’t that bad- a bit more confining, but it takes NOTHING away from the ride. I will say the shin guards are a bit painful though. The blue train is not running well, a bit shaky and not the standard smooth as glass ride I know and love (and expect!). Feels like a rebuild is needed for the blue! Scream ran two of the three towers, both on combo. Cyclone’s wheels must have finally been greased, they didn’t squeak as loud as usual. Time Warp was running, and got a new paint job. Mind Eraser broke on the lift hill stranding an entire trainload at the top of the hill! They had to get the cherry picker out and remove the riders one at a time. Batman and Flashback seemed to be the GP crowd favorites as usual.
A great day at the park. I’m sure we’ll make it back for Fright Fest later this fall. The park was clean and the workers for the most part friendly. I hope S:ROS rebuilds the blue train over the winter as I’m sure it will be one train only (red) after Labor Day.
How long was Mind Eraser stuck? How long did it take for all the riders to get out. If you happen to know?
