I cannot claim to know how it works but wing Coaster trains are still complex since they have a ton of electronics on board.

I can assume flipping the seats isn't as simple as it seems.

Apparently MaxxForce has been fixed and they are just waiting on state inspection.

Probably not, even if it passed inspection it still needs to do test runs.

I was at the park today. Here’s some notes:

-MaxxForce ran one test run but that was it. I doubt it opens this weekend.

-The Flash was open. They did not paint the inside of the roof and the entrance sign still says V2. The signs in the station say The Flash V2.

-Steelworks was open but not complete.

-DC Universe sign was not up.

-None of the water rides were open. Looks like won’t be open til Memorial Day at earliest. Flumes getting painted a deep green. Rapids still being worked on. They did not put sign up for Rapids yet but entrance says “early summer”

-Whirligig is still dismantled and sign still open.

-Some light landscaping was done but nothing major.

-XFlight only has one train in operation.

-Definitely an increase in benches and picnic tables like Salim mentioned

-New digital wait signage in a few spots by the information boards but apparently Flash Pass updates them so when Flash Pass is closed, they don’t have any wait times.

-New show called Kinetic opens June 25 in GMH

-Back lot repaved.

-Joker obviously still closed due to issues at another park with same ride.

-Overall staffing wasting too bad and certainly better than this time last year.

-New refill station being installed across from Mooseburger

-Bulls storage house has been redone with steel instead of the wood.

-One train of Eagle Red was on storage track!

What did I miss? Joker was operating on my first visit.

There was an issue with the same ride type at a different park (non Six Flags) that’s caused all of them to be shutdown for now. Not sure exactly what the issue was.

In Line.... 1 train. I wouldn't bother.

Edit: Not sure if this is new because I couldn't see last time because of tarps but the 2nd Train is at Goliath.

Is anyone else at the park today and know what's up with Bull? Been cycling teal and yellow empty a lot.
