… when someone you don’t even know can bring tears to your eyes.

This was posted last night on ThemeParkReview, a forum for roller coaster enthusiasts:

I can’t believe it has been 66 days since this all started. Everyday but the past two hours have felt like forever and now those 66 days seem to have flown by. It’s wonderful to see so many guests and members viewing this thread for a “little park in the middle of a cornfield.”

I am very excited for tomorrow but it’s an odd excitement. Usually for Christmas, the feeling of excitement is pared with wondering if you got that new toy or gadget or if you got a few pairs of socks (again). This excitement isn’t like that at all. This excitement is not caring what’s under the tree but, instead, is an excitement where just getting something is the best part of all!

Seriously, it could be socks and I’d still want to wear holes in them.

All will be revealed this evening starting at 8:15pm CDT: Please join us!

    Don’t have time to make a video but my guess is a wood steal hybrid coaster you are building a new one or having the voyage re done because I noticed y’all dropped the timber liner idea it will be like the Goliath roller coaster @ Six Flags Over Georgia about the same price and everything

    Am I missing something? Thunderbird sounds like it fits more accurately in the Halloween section than the Thanksgiving section
