    Unfortunately it seemed like it was closed even early on when I came to the park, but I saw employees riding it.

    I'll have my PTR up on Monday or Tuesday. I have 200+ pictures to sort through so it may take a while.... I didn't get to ride all the roller coasters unforutnelty, Kingda Ka because whenever I went over there it was closed for wind or broken down and when it finally reopened we were leaving. El Toro was amazing though definitely the highlight of my visit. I may be returning June or some point in the summer though so I'll get to ride the coasters I missed. Thanks again everybody for the tips they really helped.

    I'm glad you loved it. I think it's better than Superman by just a hair but both are such amazing coasters. Did you sit in the magic seat?

    Yes I did! It was amazing! I sat in the magic seat for both times when I rode it. There was so much airtime and it had some pretty powerful forces!

    ^^The Six Flags exit from Astroworld was poorly planned, poorly executed and totally not needed. After they left, the land stayed empty for almost 10 years. Batman the Escape was not the only coaster moved just to end up rotting in a field or rusting in a shed. Greezed Lighnin' went to Joyland and never opened. Ultra Twister went to SFA and never opened. Serial Thriller went to Great Escape, sat there for many years and finally went to La Ronde as Ednor L'Attaque in 2010- four later.

    Finally made my first visit to the park today. JL definitely exceeded my expectations. I saw a POV of one of its clones last year, however POV's do not do this thing justice. There were a lot more practical effects than I expected, and those last few scenes offered some great vehicle movement that synced perfectly to the screen. The exterior and queue were also very nice aesthetically.

    There were a couple of issues, though. First, and this has nothing to do with the ride itself, but the area around the ride is extremely empty and bare. They did a good job of repainting/retheming buildings on that strip but there is so much empty concrete space. The fact that the cut through to the Big Wheel is still blocked off make it even more...odd. I have obviously been rooting for a new coaster next year, but in all honesty they need to funnel that money into adding more flats, shops and landscaping to this area. Secondly, there should really be an attendant where the line splits for groups of 1-2/3 or more. It kept backing up there as people were checking to see which line appeared shorter as opposed to following direction. Lastly, there were technical issues during my 2nd ride. It had a 10min breakdown while I was in line, and on the last screen where the scores were displayed the graphics stayed frozen.

    Overall, amazing addition to the park. We have needed a dark ride for years and this really blows away almost every non-Universal/Disney dark ride I have been on.
