    Was the place packed? Today would've been ideal since the rain is supposed to end this morning and be cloudy the rest of the day. The original forecast probably drove away alot of people.

    It was rather busy yesterday. Fahrenheit's line extended out to its overflow. The other rides though, from what I saw, weren't that bad. Wildcat was around 20 minutes. Lightning Racer, at one point, reached the ground, but by the time I rode it, the line disappeared (That ride's line is really weird. People come in large waves, so one minute it'll be empty, and before you know it, there's a huge line). I was operating at Wild Mouse, which had around a 25 minute wait. Typical for a Saturday, honestly.

    Today the park was dead! At Wildcat, we were the only coaster running two trains (besides Lightning Racer and Fahrenheit, which ran two also). Bear, Comet, Looper, all one train. It was that dead.

    Were you the guy that I asked if I could ride with my iPod and ear buds? I was wearing a dark blue Penn State Harrisburg T-Shirt.

    At Wild Mouse? Nope. I was the bald kid wearing a hat, beside a huge white and red water jug.

    I went past the park today and judging by how the gondolas are missing from the Ferris Wheel, I doubt that it will be open at all this weekend.

    Just checked the mobile site and it lists Kissing Tower, Frontier Flyers and Ferris Wheel shut down. I think it's safe to say that the Ferris Wheel is done for this season, since this weekend is supposed to be cold. Anyone who will be there this weekend, report if the lights were working on it.
