I figured I’d start a thread for anyone wanting to give updates on their experiences in the park this year.
On Sunday Dominator was closed in the morning but opened at some point later. Flight of Fear was closed but we never got back to it later to see if it was open. Backlot was open when we went and seemed to be running all day. The fire effects were working. Reptilian had 3 trains and did not seem to be trimmed. Was pretty awesome. Pretty much the same situation as above for the other coasters. As far as flat rides we only did the antique cars and bumper cars. Wait times were pretty short on Sunday except for Twisted and Tumbili. Tumbili they were not letting you choose which side you want to go to which really sucked. Wait all that time and then be forced onto the side that basically doesn't flip. I wonder if they shouldn't change it so that both sides flip just as much. Not sure why they need to make one side not flip. Surely if you go on this you want to get some flips.5/20/2023 11am-5pm

On Saturday, the Racer 75 OPs were the best of the day. They were really into it making sure everyone was safe and comfortable with a constant and humorous “cell phones, cell phones, cell phones, cell phones…” bit the announcer was doing. I have nothing but good things to say about Racer’s Saturday crew.Ok, I think I was wrong about this. Sorry for the fake news. I remember now that after we rode we were in the shed thing and then right in the station. I don't think there was another train behind us.
One other thing I'll add about my day - Racer 75 was running great, was pretty smooth even on the return trip and was giving good airtime in the front (I only rode it once, and rode front row). However the ops were terrible. I don't really know what was going on. The OPs including the head OP sometimes seemed to be doing nothing but standing/sitting there. Maybe something was going on that I couldn't see. There was one guy with a tablet. Maybe it had to do with whatever they were using that for and I hit it at exactly the wrong time. There also seemed to be times where the OPs were confused about stuff and asking the head OP questions. It was a mess, but at least the ride was really fun. Now only if it were racing again....
