Despite the forecast calling for rain all day and thunderstorms, we went to the park.
There were only roughly 70 cars and 70 buses in the parking lot, so there was no wait for anything besides Superman. (I still don't understand this Superman phenomenon)
Anyway, there was a very slight drizzle/mist in the air all day, with 2 or 3 downpours which lasted 10-20 minutes each. So all in all, it was fun getting soaked, but worth it because of the lines.
We rode Twister, Nitro, and Log Flume during the downpours, which was fun and painful.
Rides: (not in order)
El Toro x2
Green Lantern x2
Log Flume x2
Dark Knight x4
Deja Vu x1
Fender Benders x1
Most of these were re-rides.
We inspected the area from riding El Toro twice. There were at least 20 people working on the queue yesterday in the rain. The whole queue line was lined in new shrubbery and the landscaping looked pretty good for Six Flags standards.Fence has been put up along the queue, although they probably still need queue railings in the actual sidewalk. A front loader was moving piles of dirt around Rolling Thunder's lift area, so hopefully that area is cleaned up as well for the opening of Zumanjaro.
Wooden structures are being built over the queue near the tower, as well as what seems to be a queue house near the base of Ka's tower.
Zumanjaro's gondolas on the tracks (yellow and orange things) and the coverings over the queue.
EDIT: more pictures!
Nitro was running two trains with station waits. Luckily, the C train was not in use.
Some new children show coming to the stage in Safari Kids.
Current state of Rolling Thunder's lift and station area.
