    I arrived at 11 and the lot was pretty empty as well as the park, due to the threat of bad weather. The rain held off till around 4 so lots of rides to be had since everything was a walk on. Rode both woodies and they were both running great, wildcat is a lot better than past years with only a couple of minor rough spots that will be fixxed over the next few weeks. Pinks is still being finished and wasn't open yet and still a lot of work going on at the campground site. I rode everything except for thunder rapids and the sky ride(closed). I took a bunch of pics, enjoy!

    What's with the thunder and lightning seatbelts? Is it because people complained it was getting loose during the ride?

    Just more Texas Giant nonsense most likely. They really have no effect on the ride and are just peace of mind kinda like the B&M hypers that are getting seat belts. Infact, even if the restraint came up on T&L, I doubt that seat belt would have any impact.
