Stopped by the park to check out the progress on Saturday (6/2).  They say that it *might* open Sunday.  I think they are being overly optimistic.  Anyway, here are some photos of the park to help you see what they have (so far) and how it is laid out.

Apparently they are open now. Had a soft opening of sorts on Sunday. With how they kept pushing it back, I was worried, but it looks like the ball is rolling now and what I've seen in photos looks nice.

Neat. Hope to head down there this fall. Interesting how they have two 'big' coasters, but are otherwise a pretty small operation. Quality over quantity. I'd love to see them develop like ZDT's.

That’s only temporary.  4 more rides are coming soon.

Honestly I see this being competition more for the Tracks than anything.  Maybe this will force them to consolidate to Track 4 and make that more like Fun Spot in Orlando like we’ve said they should have been doing all the long.
