    Man, seems like this park has had a rough season.

    ^Very rough for Wildcat. The park is only open on weekdays two more weeks this year and Wildcat hasn't opened yet.

    Having a great time at the park for the first time today. Boulder Dash is absolutely epic. Cracked my top 3 behind STR and El Toro. Phobia was awesome as well. Some really good positive G's and a couple nice pops of ejector. Love this park!

    Be sure to ride in 6-1 and the front at night later. Might move up further in your ranks. :D

    Tried it in the front. It's probably a dead heat between STR and this for my #2 spot. Still not as good as the insanity that is El Toro but it's close.

    Sorry for the double post but it's absolutely bonkers at night.

    That's exactly why I go to the Haunted Graveyard every year. Amazing haunt but the real reason is a few hours of Boulder Dash at night.

    Work has begun on replacing the top layer of track on the turnaround on Wildcat. Maybe it will be open on national roller coaster day? Probably not but there is a chance.

    Only ride on the closed list was Thunder Rapids, Pirate ship reopened as well.

    We are at the park right now. Big crowd today. BD is 30-40 mins because as usual only one train even though the line is past the pagoda.

    On the good side we took advantage of the season pass $5 Skycoaster ride. Can't beat that price.

    ^Yep but you need the coupon from the season pass page on their website.

    We finished the night there with a front seat night ride on Boulder Dash. It was our best coaster ride of the year!! Nothing beats BD at night!!

    This is the promotion. I've never seen this price lower. I haven't used it yet this season so I'm not sure if each rider has to have this to get the discount or if it could be combined with someone's "Bring a Buddy Pass". Might want to call ahead first.

    It's a pretty good deal especially for a single ride. Seems like it would be a lot more fun/scary if you are by yourself. I've been on it before so not in a hurry to go back on but it's very fun.

    I gave them my pass and the coupon and we both rode. I brought another coupon and Casey had her pass but they didn't ask. Note - it has to be a diamond or platinum pass. Summer Pass level does not qualify.

    ^Print the coupon and you should be all set. IMO $10 for two on the skycoaster is the best perk LC has ever given to SP holders! It isn't the tallest one around but it is fun and you can't beat that price.
