We did go last night and had a really good time. It was fairly deserted, but we did get a full train ride on Roar which was great in the dark (had my first night rides on coasters at SFA, actually). Rode it again later in the evening to finish the night off. At that point it was pretty cold. Couldn’t keep my hands up the whole ride because of it.
The lights certainly aren’t on par with KD, but they were still nice. Loved the s’mores fire pit! Afterward wondered if we could have gotten that as our dining plan snack. I failed to ask. Oh well. 4 for $15 wasn’t terrible (they had buy 3 get 1 free).
We also rode Wild One (actually my friend and I rode it. For some reason my son and nephew hate it. And get this - they like Firebird. I don’t get it). I actually chose to ride Firebird as well after they did and that was even more awful than I remembered. Ridiculously severe head banging. The fireball effect is nice in the cold, though. Maybe it’s because we rode it immediately after Firebird, but I was actually pleasantly surprised with Mind Eraser. I had heard that it’s better in the back so we rode last two rows. Yeah it had some head banging for me, but it was just little taps. The ride does make sounds no coaster should make, but I’d ride it again for sure. It was fun.
