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.

Dropped by tonight as I came into town. The vibe is EXACTLY like the Fun Spots in Orlando. They were running a $10 wristband special, possibly because I came an hour before they closed.

Looked like a lot of great options for families with the two coasters running well enough.

I didn't realize that there was a relatively elaborate looking dark ride! Unfortunately it was closed.

Apparently they didn't scrutinize their music tracks well enough because one of the songs that played over the speakers was the uncensored version of Radiohead's "Creep." Whoops!
