Thunderbird's Immelmann loopThunderbird fever? Seriously.

A few of our invited guests for Thursday’s Thunderbird Media Preview have mentioned calling work this week, sick with the Thunderbird Flu.

My version of this mysterious illness? Sleeplessness (note the time of this post) and an inability to type the word Thursday at the first try.

Somehow, it always comes out spelled Thunderbird the first time.

As we close in on opening our season on Saturday, we find our senses are heightened and grins are uncontrollable.

We finally did it.

A big steel coaster.

And a B&M coaster, at that.


This was a nice cherry on the sundae yesterday:

Thanks to all for the endless cheers of encouragement this past year. We’re just days away now and can hardly contain our excitement.

And we think it’s contagious.

    Absolutely excited about Friday and Saturday with Thunderbird, but someone needs to take a trip up to HAARP and change the weather forecast for this weekend! Can’t wait to take a ride!

    I rode this coaster ans it was AWESOME. I did have a problem getting into the seat as I am 4’11 and 48 yrs old. it was a terrible struggle and a little embarassing trying to jump up into the seat. I will say that me and the kids had a good laugh on the way home. I am wondering if I am the only adult that has had this problem.
