Seatbelts really don't accomplish anything. We rode it last year right after they were installed and saw someone had taken it off and was standing up.

Rather than start a new topic, I'll post a quick update for today since I was only at the park for an hour (I just stopped in since I was in Allentown).

At 1:00 they only had to entrance turnstyles open despite a lot of people waiting to get into the park, it backed up to where you buy the tickets.

20 oz sodas from the vending machine are back to $3.50 after being raised to $4.00 last year. The 3 point shootout went from $5 to $10 but you get a "free" bottle of water, Pepsi or Gatorade for playing,

There were a ton of school groups, Steel Force, Talon and Hydra were running 2 trains. I waited 15 minutes for Stinger and 20 minutes for Steel Force. Thunderhawk was running 1 train with at least a 30 minute wait.

Looks like the WWK clock is going down to. There was a crane in that area yesterday.

I guess I'll have to buy a cheap water resistant watch on EBay then, I was really hoping the one in WWK would still be there.

here is Jason answer for the clock towers from Twitter

how come you got rid of the clock towers in WWK and DP??” They reached the end of their useful life.
