And Herc's done...the big guy had a good run, easily the deepest he ever went in the tournament.

Here's your Final Four:

Steel Force
Thunder Creek Mountain
Journey to the Center of the Earth
Iceberg

We've got some previous champions and a newcomer in the mix this year. Like I said, this is a hell of a field to crown a champion from...really good stuff.

There will be a game later this afternoon and the other will be later tonight.

good luck to all.

For the first game, we've got two former champions squaring off...hang on tight kids, and stay behind the yellow line......

Steel Force

That was a tough choice since both are 2 of my favorite rides in the park.

Well, here we are at the end of a long, long JOURNEY....and two rides trying to FORCE their way into the annals of DPWWK history. Until tonight, there has only been one ride that has been a two-time champion. Tonight, Talon will be joined in that distinction by one of these venerable attractions.

For all the sweat, for all the long lines, for the offseason spent in the maintenance shed, it all comes to this.

for the 2016 DPWWK Championship.....

As the last bits of confetti drift away into Cedar Creek, it's time to draw the tournament to a close. I have to thank all that participated this year. It was good to see some of the old regulars posting again, and I think I might have seen a few new ones as well.

Admittedly it took a little bit longer to get through the brackets this year, but that's not a problem....if it meant that the last day of the tournament would be on a beautiful 80-degree day like today, it was worth it. I mention that because today, with blue skies, green grass, trees starting to bud with blooms and leaves...TODAY was the first day that I really thought that the season had truly passed for good, and we're well into spring with a great summer around the bend.

And that's what it's all about.

Thanks once again, and see you in the queue.
