Great video Rob! I just watched the entire thing. Thanks for the walk thru.

Question: are those boneless wings and that loaded chicken sandwich a new thing? I've never been in that chicken place by Eagle. I like the nachos/funnel cake place across from Demon because I can get a meal and the funnel cake with only 1 wait in line!

Yes the boneless wings by the Eagle have been there for a long time and this is the only place i know I of where you can get them buffalo style. The sandwich is new this year as well.
Glad you liked the video. I know it was a bit long, but figured people could just scrub through to what interests them.

Thanks,
Rob

Rob, The video wasn't too long at all. It was great to watch a complete walkthrough considering mgmt didn't do much to keep the public engaged during the closure. I appreciated the length and like a lot of things lately a full, virtual experience.

Park update today (5/1/2021):
Got to the park at about 12:30 and it was very busy.
Temperature check line for the first group was to the new Hurricane Harbor entrance and the second one was almost as long, but made it through in about 12 minutes.
Maxx Force was down as it seems there is an issue when the train leaves the station it does not fully clear the last car, thus the second train cannot move into the station.
Buccanner Battle and Loger's Run also were open today.

Food was long, but Mobile ordering go me my Strutters in about 12 minutes.
Not sure of the IL governor moved to another level or note (saw a note that he might by this weekend), but the capacity seems much more than 25%. In addition, Batman - The Dark Knight and Justice League were both opened today which are indoor attractions and were not opened previously. On B-TDK, the queue part in the old theater was skipped, but did not ride so cannot tell you how they spaced indoors.
That's about it for difference I saw this week compared to last weekend.

Thanks...glad you liked it. I tried to cover everything and it got long in trying to do so. I can see in the YouTube Analytics that most people watch for about 12 minutes and I usually try for ten minutes and a good balance.

Illinois definitely hasn't moved to a new phase (people thought it might by this time based on the vaccination numbers, which have met what they needed to, but some other metrics haven't), so it should still be 25%. The thing is, it's presumably 25% of 'maximum' capacity, not 'normal' capacity, so that can still be a lot, especially if stuff is going slower because of Covid reasons. But I haven't been to the park this year so I can't judge for myself
