My kid has his 10th birthday and is always talking wanting to stay down at the Hilton.  I am a diamond member so I figured I would surprise him.

Thats fun!  enjoy the weekend...

We set up reservations for the night of 9/2.  Everything was easy to do.  Had to call back to assure a ground-level room for my wife (who can't do stairs right now because of her hip).

Palallin... who did you talk to..  Did you verify room rate over phone?  IF not suggest you do so when you check in...  Maybe I will see you...

Okie....  The Hilton!!!  :o :o,    Special occasion?

Agreed !  Donít fix what ainít broke.

Sadly the problem is FitH and FM are broke and getting "broker" and they're not fixing them.

One of the guys out there (who posts here sometimes) put a huge amount of time, investment and effort fixing up FM last year, and it was looking great last season, especially at the beginning.  But it almost seems like last offseason and this year the park is refusing to do anything other than basic work to keep them running and ignoring everything else with the rides.  Which is tragic.

Tragic.  will be the day they announce they are replacing the ride with a new attraction.. :'(

No it was perfect back in the day.  I do not recall getting any more wet that what you would on the river ride or log ride.

It was a great ride,  and dont remember getting soaked..   Loved that ride.!

Pet policy will remain the same...

I dont expect any changes for a little while, IF any..  I am trying to be optimistic,, ;D

The Lunch room downstairs is typically closed during the week, because of low traffic count... IF the motel is full it would be open... It is "almost" always open on the weekends.... This weekend it was open on sat and sunday as usual.

I did get to meet one of the co-owners today, KD introduced me and and we basiclally covered our "arrangment with him....  LOL, 
A lot of info for the poor guy,
They are still getting their feet on the ground,
AND I am pretty sure he was having trouble understanding English... (if you catch my meaning)..

I will be back Labor Day weekend and will try to talk to him again..

I am not getting real positive vibes from the owners yet, KD is very nervous and apprehensive,  as I said I am trying to remain positive..

I did try to meet with the other motel owner, but her daughter was having a baby this weekend, so I will call her Monday for more details..  And then meet with her Labor day weekend again..

Thats about it.. Town was slow this weekend considering it was supposed to be "Car Show Weekend"....  >:( >:(  Of course it wasnt because it has been rescheduled...

Questions? comment..     Post them..     PM me..
