Here's a 2000 map of the park:

Monday July 3rd, 2000
July

Shot1439.png

Good morning

Shot1440.png

I decided to hit Hurricane first, before the crowds got to it

Shot1441.png

Might just be the best view in the park right there (Still haven't gotten around to removing those flowers, will do so soon)

Shot1442.png

Dare Devil Dive can be seen from all the way across the park

Shot1443.png

Guy behind me on Mr. Freeze had never been on a launched coaster before. Took it like a pro

Shot1444.png

I wonder if the park will ever build a taller coaster

Shot1445.png

Today was a great day for Aquaman Splashdown

Shot1447.png

Even standing on the bridge was enough to cool off

Shot1448.png

Verdugo was down... sigh

Shot1449.png

I rode Grand Stand a few times and got lunch at Andre's

Shot1450.png

Gyration was testing throughout the day but unfortunately did not open

Shot1451.png

Scream Machine would really benefit from some new Vekoma trains

Shot1452.png

Chaos was having problems too.. pretty bad for the week of Independence Day

Shot1453.png

Funny story: Back in 1995 me and my friend were riding Ship Dip and the guy in front of us throw up and it landed on the old woman behind him. Not so much funny as it was gross, but her reaction was still priceless

Shot1454.png

Connecticut Cruisers is 10x better than Cab Derby was, in my opinion

Shot1455.png

You won't be seeing this empty line during Fright Fest, that's for sure

Shot1456.png

Sometimes, you have to finish where you start.

'Night

Thursday July 27th, 2000
End of July crowds

Shot1446.png

Yep, it's that time of year again

Shot1448.png

The dreaded final days of Read to Succeed

Shot1449.png

I figured Connecticut Cruisers wouldn't have a terrible line, so that was my first stop

Shot1450.png

At 20 minutes, it was the shortest wait of the day

Shot1451.png

A shot of the crowded parking lot, taken from CT Twister's lift hill

Shot1452.png

Yeah, no thank you

Shot1453.png

Batwing's queue was atleast somewhat manageable

Shot1454.png

I purchased a new camera at the gift shop!

Shot1455.png

The Lost Rapids now permits single riders to enter through the exit! Really saved me some serious time

Shot1456.png

Due to the upcharge factor, Dare Devil Dive had one of the shortest line at 25 minutes, so I took it for a ride

Shot1457.png

On my way to lunch, I saw this line for Cocina Picante and decided to call it a day

Shot1458.png

I did, however, ride Sky Tower on the way out, as it had just reopened from a breakdown so there was not too big of a line

'Til next time

August

Shot1447.png

Unlike my last visit where I was greeted with more than 30 cars a lane at opening, I was only behind 4 today

Shot1448.png

As fall approaches us, the park is preparing for their annual Fright Fest event

Shot1449.png

Here is the plot for Connecticut, supposedly themed around a serial killer running around with a pair of scissors. Seems a bit.. well, dark, for a park event, but I'm sure it'll be interesting, to say the least

Shot1450.png

This one sounds particularly fun

Shot1451.png

There better be free confectionaries with this one, otherwise I'm not satisfied trading this with the Hurricane Candy Trail

Shot1452.png

CT Twister's train has been removed as it prepares to run BACKWARDS for Fright Fest.

Shot1453.png

Obviously with the addition of Frontier Fling this year, the graveyard has been moved, though, not too far away. My buddy who works at the park told me 2 NEW gravestones will be added to the collection this year. Let the 2001 speculation begin!

Shot1454.png

I was also told that there was originally going to be a fourth haunt in Fairgrounds themed after Psycho Clowns, but it was cut due to costs

Shot1455.png

Americana Morgue will be making it's return to SFCK this year!

Shot1456.png

I heard that Verdugo might receive a retheme for Fright Fest

Shot1457.png

Same with The Tower of Doom. (Wow! Look at that line!)

Shot1458.png

Looks like a few passengers regretted their decision to ride

I unfortunately had to leave early due to work. I'll be back for Labor Day weekend

Mini contest: If anyone can guess the 2 rides being removed the park, you will find out what the new addition(s) for 2001 is/are before everyone else. You do have to guess both right, however, and only 3 pairs of guesses per user.

That'd be a long time to leave that space empty :lol:

In a way, you're close, but it's neither of those

Anyone can still guess until the first Fright Fest update on Monday

Sunday September 3rd, 2000
Labor Day Weekend

Shot1452.png

I had to get to the park today knowing it's the last summer weekend we can go

Shot1453.png

Fright Fest Countdown: 20 Days!

Shot1454.png

I've already purchased my pass for next year! One interesting thing to note - The Pass Perks chart in Guest Relations says that 2001 season passholders get a free cut the line pass to use on next years new "Thrill Ride." I'm excited about the free pass, but I'm guessing this eliminates the possibility of a coaster?

Shot1455.png

I also got a free line-skip pass to use today, so I instinctively used it on Mr. Freeze

Shot1456.png

Food lines were surprisingly short for Labor Day weekend, but that didn't matter because...

Shot1457.png

... I was invited to a private barbecue at the Picnic Pavilions by my fellow members of SFCKWorld.com!

Shot1458.png

You can get really good views of Dare Devil Dive over here

Shot1459.png

The park even gave us ERT on Haunted Ranch!

Shot1460.png

I was in the mood for a bit of upside-down goodness, so I took Zipper for a spin

Shot1461.png

Scream Machine's fog misters for Fright Fest are being put in

Shot1462.png

In honor of Labor Day, various Patriotic themed apparel was being sold throughout the park. Picked me up one of these shirts for $4. Not bad

Shot1465.png

Connecticut Twister BACKWARDS began testing while I was at the park today

Shot1466.png

It will unfortunately only be able to run 1 train like last time, but I think it's worth it for the thrilling experience.

Shot1467.png

Random fact: You're allowed to bring you camera with you on The Tower of Doom as long as you let the ride ops know before hand

Shot1468.png

Harley Quinn was fun, as usual. Not much else to say about it.

Shot1469.png

The park was doing fireworks over by Hurricane at 9:15, so I made my way over there

Shot1470.png

I spent a good 2 hours marathoning Sky Wheel and Hurricane (This section SERIOUSLY needs a new attraction) before the show commenced.

Shot1471.png

I couldn't resist one more shot of Hurricane, through the water

Shot1472.png

Ooooohhhhh

Shot1473.png

Aaaaahhhhh

Goodnight.

I'm afraid that Fright Fest is cancelled, unfortunately. I made multiple attempts over the past couple of days to work on it but my game file keeps crashing. I actually have 3 2000 files - One is my regular file that I've been having trouble opening, another is a new one I created 2 weeks ago that's a back-up for the first, and the last one is a Fright Fest file, which I have been unable to open for a couple of days. I've got a feeling the new for 2000 stuff might've had a bit of an impact on how my parks runs, as I've noticed it has been working a bit buggy since I installed everything for this year, and not to mention the game crashed multiple times when constructing the Picnic Pavilions area.

Since I cannot bring you an official Fright Fest update, here are the 3 new gravestones. I originally stated that only 2 rides would be removed, but I've come to a last minute decision to take out Dare Devil Dive after only one year to hopefully help my game to stop crashing. The Picnic area will also be removed, as it seems to be very power-hungry due to all of the custom scenery.

El Starfish

El Starfish's removal is cited with it's excessive loss of ridership due to the incident in 1999

Harley Quinn's Spinsanity/Delirium

Harley Quinn is being removed to make room for the 2001 addition. You're probably wondering why I used it's original name on the gravestone.. well, you'll have to wait to find out

And of course, Dare Devil Dive

Dare Devil Dive Gravestone.png


Nobody guessed Harley Quinn's Spinsanity, so the 2001 ride is under the wraps

Shot1391.png


I'll be releasing a hint or two until the park begins it's 2001 season, feel free and try and guess what the new attraction is, though I will not confirm anything until I post the first update
