    The weather was perfect and the crowds were moderate. I walked up to the entrance to try out the new bio scanners, which was pretty easy. You walk up scan your pass and then place your index finger on the scanner and thats it and the next time i go i just use the finger scan. You still need your pass for parking, dining pass, and early entry. After my first ride of the season on bizarro i headed up to check out the construction on NESS. There were workers wearing Funtime amusement shirts doing work on the ride, but the only testing i saw was it rising up and down.

    Here are the pics of ness: http://sfneonline.org/forums/index.php?threads/new-england-skyscreamer-coming-in-2014.930/page-31

    I walked around the park checking out all the changes that were made in the off season and there was a bunch. They ripped out the brick cobble stone on main street and replaced it with asphalt except for the side walks on the sides which is still the brick. The work around NESS looks great with the new entrance signs for ness and cyclone and waterfall as you walk up the stairs is a nice touch. Take 6 cafe and the new foodstand in kidzopolis are not ready yet but should be opening soon.Here's pics of some of the changes around the park.

    Good report AJ!! Today was a great day weather wise. I like the short explanation on the finger print scanners just so I have a little better knowledge when I go. And I think its great the audio's working on Bizarro, I always enjoyed it. I hope Goliath is open on the 20th cause that's when I go!! :)
    I seen one of your pics on facebook about pass holders having the dining pass, so I need to still go to season pass processing building to add it?

    Awesome photo's! Catwomen's whip looks great, but was there always flash pass on that?
    How do you think the crowd will be tomorrow? What were the longest lines today?

    @canobie#1 You must of missed my several mentions of Catwoman being added to The Flash pass. No big deal. I only posted it to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, the forum several times. I can see how it was hard to miss. ;) :pHaha.

    The lines should be short tomorrow as the ops had a good day of training today.
    ^^^^SWAFAN: yes if you need to add dining, parking or upgrade to Gold you have to go into the seasonpass processing center.
    SF added the biometric scan so that basically it is a self serve entrance. Its like the express checkouts in grocery stores where you scan and bag your own groceries and swipe your credit card and leave.

    Let's hope the Bizarro audio stays working throughout the season.

    Bizarro's Yellow Train's audio was not working up the lift hill but kept cutting in and out with the first two audio clips throughout the ride. The blue train's audio worked flawlessly.

    If the Audio was on, why did the lady in the chat say it would be off? Maybe to surprise us?

    I was in the back car of one of the trains on Bizarro and the audio only started cutting in and out on the brake run. Also Cyclone seemed to run a lot quicker than I remember last year. Cyclone is such a thrill. Second favorite coaster in the park

    Here's another pic sent to me from Thomas. It appears sfne is serious about people smoking in the park!
