Well, a quick swing by old Geauga Lake yesterday in My 1989 Accord Coupe LXi gave me some interesting sights. There are 4 tubs off the Giant Wheel, marking the first year they actully bothered to remove any. The X-Flight trains are sitting behing the maintainence building all covered in snow. Good Job Six Flags. And the big news: the new Geauga lake Road has had next to nothing done on it since closing, but I guess you could chalk that up as weather related for there was a ton of snow.
So, in closing, my catch phrase for this report is: "A Whole Lot of Nothin' "
Unfortunatly, the X-Flight trains were uncovered, and unlike the Gemini trains, the X-Flight trains have lots of little electronic bells and whistles built in them. But if the trains are built to handel being exposed for 6 months, then more power to them.
Actually with the crowds that the park formerly known as Geauga Lake draws these days, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a drive by. I am certain I have seen gang colors in there in the last couple of years.
I love SFWOA. That will definitely be my second stop when the parks start opening in May (after Holiday World of course). I really can't wait to see how their "new coaster" turns out as well as the one at SFGAdv. It was looking pretty nice at the end of last season! So, there probably is a little work being done... I hope. ;)
I've heard that some of the full timers have had to take other jobs during the winter ...sounds like things are pretty bad at the park for employees. I hope things are back in order by time the new season starts.
Danny, I was referring to a different starting position.....from where I go to visit family in the summer, CP is a few hours away, as is SFWOA I'm not one of those lucky SOBs that has a park a few minutes away ;)
