It doesn't come with a straw either. Mine fit ok in my bottle holder.
I've lost my coaster count.

Did anyone else know Jim Reid Anderson has a secret office in the park? Guess where.
They say there isn't a spot in the park where rusting metal or peeling paint is at least 15 feet away from you.

Well apparently Hank will be taking the one by Superman when Jim retires. They are moving the CEO office elsewhere...

Is Jim staying through 2020? Or will they be replacing him next year?

I've never heard of another apartment other than the one in Orleans Place. There are offices everywhere though. There is for sure one on the upper level of the parade doors (next to Triple Play). Above superman seems like a strange place to have an office. It's really small, and doesn't offer much privacy when you have to walk through the queue to get in and out.

Yep there’s an office (or at least some kind of room) above the Superman entrance. Look on Google Earth and will you see there is a stair case inside the queue. Does anybody know what’s above the Superman and DKC gift shop?

Is it the building that you come very close to while on Triple Play??? It's to the right of Triple Play as you're looking at ride

I'm pretty sure they're talkin' about this building (Hometown Amusement Co. was once located here).

I heard yesterday that the all season wristbands for FF were 50.00 this year. Can anyone officially confirm this?

Thanks.

I didn't see that anywhere. I bought mine already and mine was 50 at the park. A single day wristband is 35 and the express is 50 and the all season one is 50.
