Saturday - August 20th, 2016
Between other commitments and the extreme heat, it has been several weeks since I visited the parks. On our way there we ran into some heavy downpours (while it was sunny) and thunder and lightning in the area around the park put a hold on guests' fun especially in Hurricane Harbor where all attractions were temporarily evacuated. Here are some pictures from both Hurricane Harbor and the theme park.
|We knew parking in the last row would mean a crowded water park.
|Everything was open but not for long!
|The Paradise Pizza and Grill sign has returned.
|As always, the annual sand sculpture promoting the year's new attractions is impressive.
|Dark skies begin to move into the area.
|The lazy river was evacuated...
|...and the slide towers cleared.
|All the guests filed the walkways...
|...and many opted to call it a day.
|The Macho Nacho's Burritos truck has pulled in to Hurricane Harbor and was very popular.
|A lot fewer people were left in the park.
|The theme park's ice cream wagon relocated.
|Look what's at the Main Street Emporium!
|It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
|Gargoyles VR will soon invade the Skull.
|A rare sight - an open Oasis Cafe!
|The Barnstormers must be in a holding pattern.
|Previous site of that HH ice cream wagon.
|El Diablo has a line!
|The Safari was still running at 6:45PM.
|There was a huge line for the Toby Mac concert.
|A new sign for the 2017 attraction should appear in a little over a week.
