Photo Trip Report: March 23rd, 2016 - Opening Day!

Recommended Posts

I'm impressed with how Joker looks near the lake, and I like the view opened up where Grandstand used to be.

 

Also, I find it curious that they've removed the drink stand and old Music Express queue in Old Country, in addition to the old Chiller station. The fact that they're spending the money to remove all this from an unused section of the park makes it seem like they have plans for the area in the near future.

^ Ok then, well one can hope they have Old Country plans right? :)

 

Also, was some of the landscaping removed from Harley Quinn's infield? It kind of looks like it, if so some theming put around the ride track would be cool.

The funniest ride today was the one my friend had all day at the park. Recently he fell and injured his foot and ended up renting one of the park's ECVs (scooters) to get around. Oddly, the thing had a mind of its own varying the speed on its own. We tried to figure out it if was maybe the type of pavement he was on but it didn't seem to matter. Several times I could have gotten on my hands and knees and outpaced him. It seemed to go faster in reverse, but that wasn't an option!

Excellent pictures. That angle of Bizarro's train in the cobra roll is really cool.

Great report, Harry. LOVE that shot of the gorgeous Golden Kingdom sign.

 

Just out of curiosity, did you happen to catch prices for wheelchair/stroller/scooter rental?

 

Nice to see that they put up a fence around the Sky Bar construction and that things generally seemed to be tidy. But have to say I'm disappointed in what looked to be a Premier-era level of ride closures. I hope they aren't working on a shoestring ops budget once bigger crowds show up.

They announced a few weeks ago yesterday and today were soft openings with limited rides open with the park fully open starting tomorrow.

Thanks pashacar!

 

A wheelchair is $25 with a $25 refundable deposit. An ECV IS $50 with a $50 refundable deposit. Not sure about strollers.

 

As mentioned, the first couple of days were a soft opening with rides that would be closed listed on their webpage ahead of time. The park had almost everything up and running including some things that were going to be closed like Zumanjaro. The park looked great especially after such an abbreviated off season.

Continuing this trend, they opened BBNP today!

I went wednesday too. Gorgeous weather, very low crowds, everything was pretty much a walk on! Perfect day at the park. I love days like this in the early part of the season.....

BBNP is Bugs Bunny National Park, right? I was stumped on that Abbreviation for a minute.

They are. They only removed Batman and Robin the Chiller's station.
