I'm not sure if I've seen that there before, but I saw maintenance happening on the ride on the 3rd and 5th, one of the times they had a truck with what seemed to be a large hose on it. I have a feeling the ride will be opening soon, probably by the end of the month.

The Coming Soon sign is new on Roaring Rapids. The plan is to get it open. They are still working on it.

Loggers is now open 12-7 daily. They scrambled to get it open because Aquaman is closed for the year.

Apparently SFGAm is having an after-dark food and ride event from the 28th-30th in Hometown Square. I think it's a fine idea and don't mind the $40 upcharge, but how are they only giving guests a 2-4 day heads-up???

That seems like really poor planning and bad management/PR. Why not try to promote the event for more than a few days?

^ I think the idea is a really good one! But you have only 3 hours to use up at least 12 food credits : Members get 4 bonus credits and pass holders 2 bonus credits.

Even if you were to buy 3 entrees to use up 12 credits, 3 hours is too short to consume all that food!

I think they should lower the price to maybe 24.99 or 29.99 and give out 10 credits.


Also, does anyone know how to redeem the Bring Friend for 29.99 offer?? It doesn't show up in the portal for me. I'm a gold pass holder (only IL parks).

UPDATE: I just called Great America and the customer service rep said if the Bring a Friend for 29.99 doesn't show up in the portal for me, I can buy the ticket at Guest Relations (booth on the right as you're facing the park) . I just need to show my pass and an ID.

Shooting at the park tonight, sounds like multiple possible victims. At least 5 ambulances requested. Unreal.

3 were injured. All non life threatening and only 2 went to hospital. It happened in the parking lot and Lake County Sheriff said it was not an active shooter incident.

Final details aren’t yet know but sounds like the shooter wasn’t even at the park, just drove into parking lot. Shot at 3 people and left.

Things I have noticed on my last visit, that I am pretty sure I didn't see before.
1. There is now a Batman light on the Dark Knight Coaster building at night.
2. Demon has multiple "eyes" and 1 big demon eyes inside the tunnel that lights up now, there is also smoke inside the tunnel.
3. Giant Drop queue has sound effects as well as on top of the tower. Mining sounds, birds flying over and etc.
4. Batman queue also got fixed up a bit I think, the drain pathway has new metal platform, and I think the police car got effects fixed.
5. The dark knight coaster seems like it had more things turned on.

Still need to be fixed:
1. Battle for Metropolis, bring back glasses, and the main huge screen if off/broken.
2. Turn back on X flight effects. Water mist, and jumping waters along the pond.
3. I would also bring bac the preshow for Dark Knight, it was managing the wait times better, and it was nice to see a pre show in my opnion.

Did anyone go to Fright Fest last weekend? If so how was your visit?

I was able to go for opening day Saturday and it turned out to be an excellent day! Because it's Fright Fest I expected the park to be packed but the back parking was barely used. Got to the park at opening and got on all coasters by 5:30pm. No wait was longer than 30 mins except for Maxx Force which was about1.5 hours around 12:30pm. Made it to 4 of 6 of the mazes all of which provided some decent scares, people just need to move a little quicker as my groups would always end up bumping into others in front.

I'd rather they just upgrade Justice League to 4K
