I'm still shocked from the fact that the ground was covered in like a couple inches of snow for halloween.

I’m just wondering why the park hasn’t announced the ride lineup for HITP yet while most of the other SF parks have already.

Perhaps they don’t know yet. I’m hearing that Superman will not be open this year. And that MaxxForce is unlikely as well.

I also heard a rumor that the park was considering staying open into the first week of January but nothing is official apparently

I would assume they would just use the same ride lineup as last year. It’s too bad Superman won’t be open this year. I wasn’t expecting Maxx Force to be open though. Maybe they will have a few more flats open.

Something tells Thats last years info. The calendar portion is correct but it says “The thrill capital of the Midwest announced Holiday in the Park” and the ad for the memberships says “Lock in 2018 pricing”

I was thinking the same thing until I saw Hangover and Big Easy Balloons listed. I'm pretty sure neither of these rides were in the lineup last year.

That list of rides is not accurate either because superman, joker, and fun machine are not opening this year for holiday in the park. They added big easy balloons, hangover, and River rocker for this year

Yeah, looks like they're actively working on the web page referenced by the URL above. I've seen the page change several times today. Superman, Joker, and Fun Machine have been dropped from the list of rides, but they've added pictures of some food items I've never seen before. Maybe these are for the other parks because the pictures come and go.

Weird that they'd work on a page visible to the public. Where I work, we'd normally develop, test, and then publish only when we're reasonably sure we've got the final product.

Six Flags does a lot of weird things.

The link still talks about holiday in the park like it’s the first time doing it so still not sure on its full accuracy yet plus I heard that the park is going to open on New Years Day this year.

I received an "Announcements" email today that has a link to the HitP page that was being worked on yesterday. This page still has some references to 2018, but I suspect it's getting close to being done.

Here’s what it said, “more rides open...not so sure about that”.

Which one? If you're referring to Lobster, it was in the original list you provided, but not in your second. I think the omission in the second was a mistake.

From the web site, this was the list as of November 6 (18 rides total). It is still current:

Coasters
Batman The Ride
Raging Bull
The Dark Knight Coaster
Vertical Velocity
X Flight

Flats
Big Easy Balloons
Chubasco (Peppermint Swirl)
Columbia Carousel
JUSTICE LEAGUE: Battle for Metropolis
Mardi Gras Hangover
River Rocker
Rue Le Dodge (Snowflake Lane)
The Lobster

Kiddie
Crazy Bus
Lady Bugs
Red Baron
Sprocket Rockets
Tot's Livery

There was 19 rides last year. 18 this year. Three removed, 2 added. That’s one less than last year.

It's a challenge. Ride a coaster in cold weather with skin exposed. I've read where it's been done wearing gloves, shorts, T-shirt, etc.
