    That is disappointing news. Seems like quality is on the decline in general for the whole amusement industry.
  2. Batman & Robin: The Chiller

    Anyone else think the exterior of Negan's compound on The Walking Dead looks similar to the exterior of the Chiller's old station?

    I was by the fort when the rollback I saw happened. Saw it was slowing down and not going to make it over the apex.

    That is a very picture of Nitro, good enough to be in a ad for the park.

    Also don't tell your neighbors you have a bomb bunker in the basement, listen to the old man in the cave about canned food, and find yourself a foreign chick so you can be the next Adam and Eve. Might also want to think about stealing a rocketship and head to some other planet called Earth.

    Just be sure to have a spare pair of reading glasses for the post nuclear apocalypse so you don't end up like that guy in the Twilight Zone.

    It was pretty crowded at first today, but it thinned out quickly when the sun began to set and the temps dropped. Nitro and Mine Train broke down. The Skyscreamer also broke down but did reopen. It was pretty windy which was probably why the Skyride and Parachutes were closed. KK was also closed but it was test running. I saw it rollback empty once, the first time I have seen a rollback in person. Houdini was also closed, even though the cool weather would have made it a good day for it to be open. TDK was also not running its preshow and some of the effects were not working. There were lots of extra bratty little kids today that just ran past or pushed adults in line. Many of the queue videos had way out of sync audio.

    Depends how much falls, right now they are predicting 1 to 3 inches of snow this Sat, and Sun will be cold so there will not be much melting. It has snowed in Philly as late as May 8th. Probably won't warm up until late in April at least, just a prolonged Winter this year. Northeast weather usually blows. Edit, one forecaster now says we could even get 5 to 8 inches of snow this Sat, if that happens it will likely be another cancelled weekend for the park. Probably just the 1-3 is enough to cancel this weekend. April is shaping up to be just as much of a dud as March was.

    Weather doesn't look all that good for this week. Now they are predicting more wet snow this Saturday, and temps staying well below normal into the foreseeable future. Probably going to be a cool and damp spring and summer this year.

    Thursday seems to be the sunniest day, but still cold for this time of the year. Just not a very good forecast this week. Happens pretty often during spring in the cold and damp northeast.

    The park has posted that they are delaying opening till noon because of the snow. They also said to keep checking for updates, which may mean they are not sure about opening today. Seems more like a winter break than spring break.
  12. Misc GA Mumblings

    Forecasts all say it will snow until 10 am. At 40 degrees its going to take longer than two hours for 3 inches of snow to melt off. Probably will be at least delayed opening as they remove the snow and spread salt, if they bother to open. If you can, plan for a another day, as much as the delay may suck. Not sure how well they can clear snow off of coaster tracks. Probably won't be too nice anyway being so cold and slush everywhere.

    Well the spring break weather for this coming week is looking pretty bad. Monday will only be 41 with 1 to 3 inches of snow, would not be surprised if the park just cancels that day. Tuesday will be in the 50s but rainy, Wednesday will be in the 60s but also hard rain. Thursday will be dry but cold only in the low 40s. Friday is probably the best weather day, mid 50s and dry. Saturday cold at only 40 with a chance for snow showers and next Sunday is still cold at just 43 and partly cloudy, about 20 degrees below normal. It looks like it will stay in the 40s after next weekend for a while. No sustained warm weather in sight yet, just a few odd single warm days here and there between long stretches of cold days that are well below normal. April is going to be a bust like March.

    Accuweather is about the least accurate of the weather forecasters. Probably better pick a different day to go. If it follows the pattern of recent past storms, the forecast for Monday will keep getting worse. The long term forecasts are predicting continued cold weather with only a few short bouts of warmer weather for April. Its going to be another well below normal month. The forecasts for May are not looking good either. I just hope the park doesn't salt their parking lot.

    Hopefully it will be a speedy recovery. Its always hard when a relative falls ill.
