Went yesterday as the weather was dicey all day. Got there right at 10:30 and got in the park quickly. Rode Nitro and walked right on to the train - definitely my favorite coaster. Decided to ride El Toro for the first time. Got right on the coaster, but I will probably never ride it again - too extreme for me for a wooden coaster - lots of jostling and jerking - not good for my back - LOL. We also went on a few other rides with virtually no wait - which is amazing for a Saturday. Also ate at Yum Yums for lunch - no wait at all. Was going to eat at Grannies but noticed that smell everyone has been talking about. Someone recently said that the smell was gone, but I distinctly smelled a nasty grease/sewage smell and determined that I was not eating at that place!
Also - while I was walking through the entrance to El Toro, I noticed off to the left there was a small section of what I assume was the old Rolling Thunder coaster structure still there. I think there were also a few of the old cars sitting on the ground nearby. Does anyone know the story behind this? Was it an issue of staging the El Toro construction that they had to leave this section in place? It looks like the framed around it, but I can't be sure as I only had a moment to look.
