What date was that? Do you know if it's open during the week? Totally worth a trip for it alone :mrgreen:
May 29! I’m pretty sure it’s open daily from 11 to 8 but you’ll have to check the time on the sign.

Things I have noticed;
1. Battle for Metropolis is no longer in 4D, which for me personally is a huge bummer. It should be at least an option.
2. Chubasco has now seatbelts, which I find a bit crazy.
3. Aquaman signage needs a better support rail, instead they used some recycled black light weight aluminum. Not only does it look ugly, but I wouldn't feel safe to stand below that sign. Look at it yourself when you are at the park next time.

Comparing to what I have been seeing at other Six Flags parks getting improvements, things repainted, redone, especially Fiesta Texas. Seems like our park is WAY behind to everyone else.

DC Universe might be open - but they're still missing stuff to make it look like the animation we saw in March:

- Mardi Gras and DC Universe entrance - Covered bridge not painted and no DC Universe sign on both the bridge and the big one near The Joker
- The Flash: Vertical Velocity - The sign is just sitting there on the side, not on the entrance & they're missing those The Flash info plaques
- DC Super-Villains Swing - The superhero statue near the entrance isn't there like the one in Fiesta Texas, also small detail but the sign isn't as big as it is at Fiesta Texas either or on the animation
- Main plaza - Missing the shaded area near Aquaman Splashdown entrance/Steelworks Pub deck

That's just what I noticed from my visit on Saturday (June 18), but if theres any changes since then let me know !

Also additionally, they're charging people at Hurricane Harbor $20 per seat by Hurricane Bay, so, just a heads up

Does anyone know if you can still upgrade a single day ticket to a season pass??

I think it's the difference of the cost of the ticket and the season pass you're upgrading to

Also it looks like the DC Universe entrance signage near the Mardi Gras entrance was erected this week, and V2 will keep its' original sign.

We were at the park today. Several rides were not operating due to staffing: V2, Super Loop, Logger's Run and possibly more.

Others were not operating much of the day: Maxx Force

Plus we still have several SBNO rides: Sky Trek, Suckaneer Battle, Rapids

We have 4 water rides and only 1 is operating. Not good!

WHY are they still short staffed??

I went to Kings Island, KY Kingdom and Holiday World earlier this month. Pretty much ALL the rides were operating at those parks. Why does our park still have staffing issues??

Also, the gift shop at Justice League is completely empty. Are they going to do something with that space?

I think the staffing issue is that SFGAm pays.... $13 an hour lol (Six Flags employee told me, rides dept.) even Mcdonalds pays $15. Who would want to work at Six Flags and drive to work with gas prices so high. I read somewhere that SFGAdv pays $20/h. Now if SFGAm did that, it wouldn't have any issues. Raise the ticket/pass prices by 1-2 dollars and give it to people.

Yeah, you're probably right! Many of the food service people are foreign exchange students. They might not have other options so they are OK with slightly lower wages. But other parks utilize foreign students as well I believe.

As someone who worked for the park, rides is ridiculously easy work. I would do that agaun over burger flipping or running the register at a McD any day.

I noticed the following elements on 2 rides that seem to be new . Are these new or have I just never noticed them?

Dark Knight - after the first drop there's a billboard that lights up on the left side

Justice League - There's a sign that says "Lex Corp" and 2 desks that have office stuff on them. There also is a new smoke that's blown on the riders (might not be new but I don't remember it)
