I'm hoping to be but still ironing out details on season pass, transportation, and potential other trips.  :-)
This is a stick up!  Get it? Stick.... Nevermind, it's a train robbery.  I want everyone to get your hands up and act scared.

Sanddune, don't know for sure when we can come down.....there is still  a lot of lawyering from Bob's car accident.....the other guys estate is being troublesome. Bob also has been doctoring all along. He has some ongoing medical issues from that accident. We will try to get down sometime in the early part of June.

Good luck with the attorney situation, as well as Bob's health...  Tell him Hello from me...,  Keep in touch.!!

Looks like we'll be there Friday of opening weekend to pick up our passes and visit the park. Still waiting to hear when the media day will be for Time Traveler as well.

If it's like Opening Day for Outlaw Run the crowds should be insane.  Depends on the weather though.

I figured they would be insane. Wife and I are coming from Jonesboro. Hoping the weather plays out nicely.

As I recall, when Outlaw Run opened, it started the weekend (looked it up and it's opening day was a Friday).  SDC's opening day this year, along with Time Traveler, is a Wednesday.  That's going to have a pretty big impact on how many people will be there.  I wouldn't expect it to be anywhere near as crowded or busy for it as it was when Outlaw Run opened.

Will there be a crowd?  Very likely.  But probably not huge, at least on the Weds and maybe Thursday.  But expect the Fri-Sun opening weekend to be a very crowded mess unless the weather intervenes.

I was there the first sunday outlaw run was open. IT was COLD, trying to snow, nothing was running,  by noon there had only been 250 people in the gate.!..   
Hopefully same thing wont happen this year..
