It's look nice, but some of the information is not available like locations of the rides, or flash pass for my park.
The thing I always hated when going to some amusement park website like Six Flags is that they have pictures, and some descriptions for the roller coasters, and the new rides, but they don't have pictures of the flat rides. It's like, those aren't important. So, I have to go to a fansite to look for what exactly those rides are.
It's notorious with Six Flags. Go to Six Flags Mexico, however, and they have what every ride looks like. Well, they used to at least. I'm not a Cedar Fair fanboy, buy Cedar Point is the way it should be done as in you can see all the rides in pictures, and not just descriptions in which you guess what ride could that be if you haven't been to the park before.
Overall I like the look of the new site, but the one thing I miss already (unless I just haven't found it yet) is the big map that used to be on the pick a park page. I like being able to geographically see where each park is located. Not a huge deal, just my $.02.
I see they've borrowed some ideas from Busch, such as the Fun Planner. My friend called me yesterday to tell me the Busch Gardens Europe site had be redone, and they have something similar where you could add flags to major attractions or add attractions to a list of things you want to do.
Yeah, the map was not very usable. Its one of those things that seem to make sense to a designer, but once they are in use, don't make as much sense.
My only complaints are that I wish you could get to the hours easier, and get to other parks without going back to the homepage. All in all it is a much better site and a real improvement. You don't always see that in a re-design.
I really like the new website, however, there are a few things that I noticed. SFA is my home park so I checked out the rides page there and it says that the capacity of S:ROS is only 32. I was thinking that they might have only displayed the capacity of one train, but when I checked out other S:ROS rides, the capacity was for 2 trains. Do you think SFA's S:ROS is only going to be running 1 train, or could this just be a mistake?
I know this is petty, but its something that came to my attention. I know that that ride had problems with 2 train operation before.
