Kingda Ka and Zumanjaro are now able to run together with people on both rides!

THAT'S surprising. I always thought that they simply couldn't run at the same time because of all the sheer mass exerted on the structure from both rides. What was the actual reason they couldn't do this until now?

I thought it was because the state of NJ wouldn't allow it because they were worried about a Zumanjaro rider getting hit with something from a rider on Kingda Ka.

I guess they've decided it's no longer an issue?

 

Interesting to see Screamscape saying Road Runner Railway will re-open with Jersey Devil and a new name/theme. I'd assume it will be the "Little Devil" if that is happening?

If Safari Kids got a retheme to Timbertown, and put RRR (Little Devil) over by Safari Tours, that would be awesome, and fit in next to JDC and the Pine Barrens area!

I think this could happen. The sign on the Safari Kids portal next to Nitro’s entrance is gone, so I think this definitely has a chance of happen. A Timbertown retheme would be perfect for this area.

I think the Dino section will be after the Tigers. I would imagine guests with Dino tickets make a left and enter the backstage area where the trucks used to travel back to the theme park SORA loading dock, circle around and head back on the SORA path used to enter the Safari.  Quests would then continue into the old South American section followed by the baboon village.

Temperature Screenings and Advanced Reservations are no longer being used, effective this Saturday.  Fully Vaccinated guests and team members no longer have to wear masks in outdoor locations around the park.

Some dude on Reddit said he heard rumblings that King Da Ka might be getting lap bars. Just rumblings of course, but take that for what you will.

Link?

I'm guessing this means the NJ Transit bus service will resume soon?

 

Probably around Memorial Day, when full time operations start.

I wish we could stop all city buses from entering the park, call me selfish, but...

I wonder what happened to him now that the Chinese parks are cancelled.  He was sent to China with the director of park operations from SFGAm to setup and run the new parks there.

I was wondering that too. I'm sure he'll turn up somewhere...

He’s around :)

Mark Kane is the new park president at Six Flags Darien Lake.

Poison Ivy is becoming a serious problem at the park again. Over at Bizarro, there is one part of the queue where PI dangles down from a tree right overhead the main queue path. Tall persons can brush their heads against it and get rashes on their head or face! There is a similar problem on Congo Rapids where rafts float right under PI dangling over the bank at headrest height. I witnessed empty headrests making contact with the PI. Also see PI growing at ankle height up against the pavrment for the pathways for KK and the drop towers. Poison Ivy is a very invasive plant that take over areas very quickly and renders them impassable for humans. Keep a lookout for it, especially at the fringes of the park.

I’m gonna be visiting during the operating season for the first time since I moved out of NJ. Gonna take a wild guess and say I probably won’t get to ride El Toro. 
 

On a semi related note, has the log flume reopened?

Agreed, I never call the park Six Flags and I know it’s not a big deal but I never like when it’s referred to as Six Flags only.
