That is why I only ride OR about once a year, I really find the restraints and/or seat uncomfortable.

Well I don't know about caves but I can sure say that parts of the TNT track sure have shifted or sunk a little since they started on TT.

I got ya, I just always assumed king rooms must be more expensive for some reason.  Now I know!

Just got back from a 2 night mid-week stay at Classic. Didn't see much of the owners. Noticed some more minor changes. The room we stayed in with a king bed used to have an arm chair; it had been replaced with another bedside table. K.D. said she would let us know if she moved on.

You got a king room?  They always give us 2 queens or doubles, whatever they are.  I thought the king rooms were not available on our rate

I for one would love to stay with KD as well.  I really do not understand why she does not tell them to stick it.

I see the Baldknobbers theater is in the process of being torn down.  Says wonder world or something like that coming soon.

I thought about trying them last night but may give it a shot tonight.  BTW I am not at the Classic because yesterday was a personal night.  Today I am working so I'm at the Hampton Inn

I did not realize anyone else what there Sunday.  If I had known would have tried to say hello.  On another note, I did notice a couple of pallets of new toilets sitting in the back, and other construction supplies around the place so maybe they are getting ready to do a big remodel or something.  It did not seem to me like it needed anything major though.

No, it is not legal.  I forgot to mention, she did say she gave them her notice but they would not accept it.  They said she would either just have to quit, or they would fire her.

We were at the City Sunday.  It was a nice pleasant day, crowds were lite and all rides we rode were walk on.  When we first got there we were going to ride TT but the line was backed up to the stairs going up to the 2nd level and they only appeared to be running 1 train.  We left and didnt try it again.  Got to meet Buck Taylor who was down in the barn area selling his art work. Had a long discussion with KD at Classic.  When we were checking in there was a group of folks sitting in the lobby.  We asked her who the new owners were and she nodded to them.  I guess the place can no longer be called American owned, at least it does not appear to me to be.  She was very upset and frustrated by the number of hours they are making her work and they are now charging her to live on the property, yet require her to as they never let her off work.  As we were heading out to dinner we say some of the guys from the group who were the owners walking across the street to the one that is across and just up the road a bit, the Brickhouse something or other I believe.  I would assume they also own that one.  When we got back from dinner we brought KD some food from Florentino's.  That seemed to have made her day.  I really feel sorry for her.

I see on facebook they are starting some sort of race car ride or something along those lines and are hiring drivers.  I wonder how long this will last.

The $1 mugs are much smaller than the other grandfathered mugs, so if they are not honoring those anymore, that is pretty pathetic.

I am pretty sure that is how it has been for a while but the $1 mugs are still $1, but those are pretty darn rare.

The FM sure had a lot more theming on the outside with that water chute coming down the front.  Wish it was still like that.
