PTR 5/15/15 Quick pre-opening walkthru.

Recommended Posts

Alot of planting is going on today througout the Park. "El Diablo" was down at opening today, crews were working on it. Congo Rapids resivour is slowly filling. I would love to see when they release the water into the "rapids" section one time. No crew's working today in the Lakefront. But here's some shot's from early this morning.

I was surprised how many school trips there were. It looked like around twice as many compared to the past 2 Friday operating days. They started to leave at around 5 and then lines got a lot shorter.

^ It was alot more crowded today than the last few Friday's. Usually the closer it gets to Summer, the more School Trip's will be coming until thyy are off for Summer. I'll start coming on Tue & Wed once they switch to weekday operations in a week. But some School district's will be dimissed for Summer already then. All the local School's (i live 20 miles from the park) by the park don't dismiss until the middle of June.

Really like the unique angles on a lot of these pics! Plenty of good material from portions of the park that are off the beaten path.

 

It didn't take long for more work on El Diablo either. The flames on the bottom ends of the signboard are a notable addition.

I'll be back at the Park early again tomorrow for the next PTR. See if anymore "prep" work has been done during this last week of an empty park. Today is the last day the Park will be closed for a long time.
