Its most likely the topspin from Geauga Lake, which runs the same program as King Chaos at SFGAm (or at least when I was there).

Thats been playing all year.
BTW were you wearing a TPR shirt? I was taking garbage bags over to Superstition and noticed someone wearing one of those shirts and made sure to comment (Carousel/Tower were already open at 9:45).

It is currently sitting in pieces somewhere outside Darien Lake.

IMO that looks kind of silly. Theres nothing wrong with the logo they have now and since its one of the signature Six Flags parks in a large market I dont see why theyd change it.

The seats/lapbars were replaced last year and finished early this season. They are the same size.

Yeah, it is a great ride. I don't understand why they changed the name from the Lobster. That definitely help kill more of the theming in the Yankee Harbor section. :( It was repainted and name changed to fit in with Batman when it opened. If your ready to ride the Crawler let me hear ya holler.......

SFGAm has done an outstanding job this year IMO putting some more detail into Demon. The main sign was re-painted with flames, the flowers out front were put in to look like flames, all the signs in the queue/station have been replaced with nice new themed ones, and the airbrushed logo's are awesome.

Price increases doesnt have much to do with the park needing money because they're in debt; it is becomes more expensive to run and maintain the park every year plus being the only theme park in the Chicago area and still drawing huge crowds theres really no reason not to increase prices.

Why would Great America care about what a teenager thinks of a kids area. Do you have any idea how much revenue it brings in?

A lot of park guests complained about the old soundtracks the park used to play that they were annoying. Orleans Place, Mardi Gras, and Southwest Teritorry still play the original music they had. All other areas of the park now play more modern music.
