    I remember going opening day last year and the area around Pandemonium was fenced off because they hadn’t finished the new pathway.

    Exactly! Often, especially with water park additions, they shoot for Memorial day weekend. Basically start of summer.

    I remember back in 2013 Screamin’ Eagles was super late.

    I’ve seen her a few times and she seems nice. Do you guys think we’re gonna see some changes coming in terms of the direction the park goes in? Hopefully more thrill rides!

    But congrats to her and good luck to Gilbert!

    I think it's to early to tell.

    Sad to see Eric go, very nice guy, but glad he got a nice new opportunity. And good to see that someone who’s been with the park got the job.

    I was able to get a good look at the park this past week- not much going on. No life yet and the park still had a pretty good snow cover. It’ll be a busy next 7 weeks until opening!

    I'm sure they have something hidden away they are working on. Would be hard to do much outdoors until the snow if a bit more melted.

    Has TGE started work on that digital sign they've been pushing for the past few months?

    In 13 years I have been to the park twice. I didn't make it last year but hope to get back this year. The water park addition has not part in that simple a desire to get more out of my pass. But the Comet itself merits an occasional visit to the park.

    We go a bit more often but certainly not every year. Comet is always worth the stop. Alpine Bobsled can be fun but it is often difficult to catch it on a day it is open.

    I went last year for the first time. It was only for a couple of hours but I'm so glad I did. Comet is amazing. Hopefully Alpine Bobsled will be open when I go this year...

    Hope you get a bit more time on that trip. they have a number of flats worth hitting and a few hidden attractions that one likely wouldn't even look for if time was short.
