We had the privilege of dropping by the park today thanks to the fantastic GA PR team! Be sure to check out our Member Exclusive Photos for a bunch of photos of the stuff going on around the park. Here are a couple of samples....

Oh, and to calm anyone concerned, Twister and Fantasy Fling are being rehabbed, not removed!

The two buildings in mainstreet that were painted look out of place now. Is it just me?

I understand that but it just looks out of place. Isn't Mainstreet supposed to have a colonial theme anyway?

I like how they are taking time to fix up the park by painting and rehabing rides.

Skyride is getting much needed paint as well as some rehab work. They had the drive motor apart on the B side while we were there, and the one tower looked like it was getting the rollers rehabbed as well.

Something new is coming to the Mini Golf building, but we're not sure what.

Yeah, what happened to the Colonial theme? It's not like we need any more areas of the park to feel like an outdoor mall.

Also, just wondering, are those blue accents on the boardwalk games new?

The paint in the Boardwalk is new. There is a LOT more painting going to happen...I think it will all work well together when it's done.

That good to hear that Twister and Roundup are not being removed, was there any news of Tango reopening?

Safest bet in the world: that a geek snob will find something wrong with something big in the subject of his/her (mostly his) fixation and grouse about it for the rest of his/her life.

Building wise or ride wise?

I'm a little upset to because I liked the Colonial Theme but the park does need color. The aqua-marine color on the games look nice. Boardwalk is going to be full of color.

Yesterday the restrooms near Jolly Roger were also being painted and the Nitro Grille's being changed to a New England themed eatery. With more to come, even in the dead of winter the park looked bright and refreshed.

On a different topic, it is nice to see that the new trees on Main Street are getting pretty big.

Really? How does that fit in to the section?

I'm happy to hear that Nitro Grille is being re-themed. It gets virtually no customers (I would know, I worked at the dipping dots across from it) so now it should be a nice place to eat after Nitro. I know I'll grab a bite opening day and judge it accordingly.

The bathroom near Jolly Roger didn't really need paint but if the park has it why not use it.
