Ah!-ctober

Ah, what a relief. It’s finally October, one of my favorite months of the year. Fall is finally here in full swing. The weather is cooling off. And parks are finally bringing out all the Halloween decorations. That’s right, its Halloween season and I couldn’t be more excited. To me, a park always looks better during their Halloween events.

This past weekend, Adam and I went up to New England to visit my home parks of Six Flags New England and Lake Compounce to ride the world famous Bizarro and Boulder Dash. And they are certainly world class. Bizarro (formally Superman: Ride of Steel) has been a long time favorite of mine, and Boulder Dash, since we reprofiled and rehabilitated it in 2008, has been running like the best wood coaster on the planet! If you haven’t been up to Lake Compounce in the last few years, I suggest you go there soon, because Boulder Dash is like no other.

And speaking of unique terrain coasters…there have been some excellent photos posted on facebook recently of our new coaster in China! Go and take a look at those because they are honestly quite amazing. I’m probably not alone when I say this, but I think this ride is going to be something really special. The thought of adding another 1800 feet to one of our average sized rides is simply mind blowing. Get excited everyone.

As for me, I’ve been pretty busy lately. There is always something to do in or out of the shop, so time has been moving very fast. In fact, I hardly realized it, but I’ve already been here for 14 weeks! I guess time really does fly when you’re having fun. And fun might just be an understatement :)

And speaking of fun, the Phoenix Phall Phunfest is happening at Knoebels this Saturday and I am going! I’ve never been to this event before, so like usual, I’m really excited. But I think I’ll save the details for my next entry, along with a construction update on our tremendous office expansion.

So until next time..

Jeff :)
