    I got to speak to him a lot yesterday. He said he's working with Intamin on the sky tower thing in Orlando. He said the layout keeps changing for it.

    Also, didn't we say we wanted pins for the rides? And what did we get..? PINS!! YAY :)

    Same, I said hi to him earlier in the day but I didn't want to bother him with questions. Seems like a pretty down to earth guy though :)

    I saw him (Alan) many many times throughout the day. He looked to be having a really good time. He posed for pics with folks repeatedly. He seemed to be a very nice guy and was enjoying that people were enjoying his creation. We saw him ride once in the front car and on return he was smiling broadly. It must have been a very fulfilling day for him.

    it had to of been a fulfilling day for him. its a pretty big accomplishment to design this ride and watch construction and make changes, and when you ride it, to see you hard work pay off and make other people happy

    Here's one more pic, a nice one of the entrance with the balloons. Wonder if they'll keep them up for this weekend.

    How bad do you think the lines will be this Saturday? I'm taking my little cousin for his first time. He isn't all enough for Sros,BtDK, Goliath. But well wanna hit up WC, and all the family rides. And with Houdini, my grandmother has back problems, should she not ride it? Thanks .

    I always tell myself to never step foot in the park on a Saturday, and when I do, I always regret it. Last week I rode WiCy once then left and went to LC because it was hot, crowded, and no fun.
