Looks like it is in the area of where one of those hard bumps is.

Wow!  That's one of the best Christmas presents I can think of from SDC: making Thunderation rideable again!  I do get in 1 ride on it each trip but that's all I could handle with the rib-breaking bumps.  Thanks Swoosh!

Yes, it's been hard to stay active when everything seems to be in limbo these days. Hopefully 2021 brings a burst of activity and the park is packed all year so they can continue with their growth in 2022. I've heard there are some dark thoughts around the company of what could happen if things don't turn around...

The work on TNT is great, but I wonder if they are actually going to do the work necessary to fix the large bumps, or if this is just basic TLC to get it through another season? The tunnel is what really needs work, but I imagine it's the hardest area to fix.

I rode TNT yesterday and I will say it is hard to tell if it is any better or not.  I really do not think it is, and might actually be worse.  I rode in the very front.  All I can say is thank god for trailblazer passes on my visit this past weekend.

Well I didnít expect there to be a huge difference in just one application with TNT

Thereís lots of ďpossibleĒ projects that could happen this off season.  It all depends on how tight the bean counters want to pull those purse strings shut. 

Some things have to be done, the park doesnít have a choice.  Mystic River Falls needs attention.  PowderKeg needs attention so it can run more than one train again.  Wildfire needs to finish the repairs to its roof (damaged by straight line winds).  Outlaw Run... well itís probably going to need I Box before itís all said and done.  Flooded Mine needs a whole new system (Sally?).  Some buildings need to be removed for safety reasons. 

I guess weíll see what all gets done... Iím guessing not much.

I know everyone wants a bunch of new stuff each year (I do like new stuf), but I also like it when the park goes in and takes a break and makes small improvements all around the park. Make each ride the best it can be and I'm happy. The things that annoy me the most are knowing something can be much better than it is....because at one time, it was better. TNT for example, the Flooded Mine, American Plunge.....

Each year doesn't have to have a 20 million ride - make everything you have the best it can be and people will keep coming back, and back, and back...

If you're allowed/able to answer, what's wrong with Mystic River Falls?? Is it just some kinks that they need to iron out?

That would be my guess too. Every visit I made when it was operating it ended up being down for maintenance at some point. And every time there was a boat stuck on the lift.

It has been running both trains.

It also looks like work being done on Outlaw Run.
