Weird! Yesterday, it was 2018's. Earlier today, it was 2019's. Now it's 2018's again. They still appear to be working on this site. I wish I would have saved a copy before it changed.

Checked this morning and the Guide was for 2018. In the afternoon, 2019. Now, 2018 again.

Fortunately, I downloaded a 2019 copy before it reverted. I added the 2019 Guide to the "Online Postings" thread.

They got rid of Tamale's and Soup in a Bread Bowl?

Hopefully the turkey sandwich is included in the dining pass.

Yeah. I just got an email from the park about Holiday in the Park and it had the link but it linked back to the 2018 version.

Where is the Online Postings thread? I can't find it.
Or can someone just send a link for the 2019 guide?

Ragin Cajun and Iron Wolf went from Six Flags Great America to Six Flags America. I guess they weren't GREAT anymore.

Six Flags had a lot to hold up to considering how incredible it was last year, and it just about met expectations, the lights are pretty, the rides are still fun, however don't expect walk ons on your favorite rides, many guests discovered last year HITP drew very little lines, so the park can get a bit crowded now. Overall, a very solid event, would totally recommend if you want one last ride on some of your favorite rides, I would discuss more such as food and shows, but I don't really go for either, take that as you will.

We are planning on going to the park 12/15. With a HIGH temp of upper 20's what could be running realistically that day?

In 2018, one of the Last Call weekends had temps hovering around 30 degrees. No coasters were open. However, we had received a bit of sleet the day before (not much). At the time, the rumor was that the cold was keeping the ice on the tracks from melting, which took the coasters offline. There was a lot of speculation, but the park never came out and told us what was going on.

So "maybe" stuff can run Sunday provided there's no precip on Saturday. Sunday is showing 0% precip.
I was hoping to just get 1 more ride each on my top 3.

I also remember that some people were talking about the cold messing with the ride sensors. If so, you'll know about it with temps in the 20's.

Let us know how things go. I'd like to know how many rides can stay up in the cold weather.

I’m going tomorrow 12/14 and temperatures will start in mid 30s and then drop throughout day so I’ll let you know what operates. I went to SDC last year and they listed on there website the temperature that rides go down on. Nothing was able to operate under 32 degrees. I believe the lowest is 34. That’s a different park of course but just a good frame of reference.

I went 12/15 and temp was in mid/high 20's and sunny. V2 was not running at all. A ride op at Batman said it had other problems that weren't related to the temp. Batman's operators were totally awesome today!
Raging Bull and X-Flight were running smoothly all day as well. I believe all scheduled rides (other than V2) were running.

Park was very empty. I was able to ride Raging Bull 5 without having to leave station, X-Flight 8x and I hit Batman 10x in a row (could have stayed on even more!). Chubasco (Peppermint Swirl) was fun. When I got on it, I was literally the only person on the ride right after opening. Even Dark Knight only had 10 people in front of me when I got in line!

Total ride count was 26 for only 3.5 hours. The lights looked amazing this year. I also heard MistleTones 2x at the Food Court. They really did a great job singing some carols.

Wow, I'd think your eyeballs would freeze. Sounds strangely fun and painful at the same time.

I had sunglasses on for part of the day so that helped, but my eyes were still tearing up! Also, I rode Raging Bull for first time ever in front row and I lost my ski hat :( Thankfully I had a 2nd hat (a "head sock") on underneath that one! Front row on Bull is provides sort of floater air over the hills, in the front, as opposed to the nice ejector air in the back. Back is still WAY better!

Finally managed to get to HITP for the first time this year. Had a pretty good time but it’s really a bummer that Joker, Superman and HTFM weren’t open this but MGH and BEB were. So does anyone know why Maxx Force isn’t open for HITP? Does compressed air launch not work well in the cold or something?
