I think it's just a crazy random happenstance.

I think people were too busy drinking and partying for this holiday weekend.

Depending exactly where in PA, you might want to try and expanding your search beyond the Major city airports. There might be more travel needed once you land, but sometimes you can snag a cheaper fare by flying into/out of an airport like Harrisburg, ABE, Newark, BWI, Trenton, etc.

Last time I flew into Laguardia because it was cheaper, then we had a 2.5 hr drive, this time we just paid a little extra to go to the airport that is only 20 mins from our destination........ small planes make me nervous and sick, should be fun!

Been a long time since I have logged on. And a long time since I have been down to DW. Well, maybe not that long (last January) but longer than my usual three trips a year. Anyway, heading down in January for the Marathon, but was wondering the status of the new mine Car ride. Is it open yet? Will it be open in January?

And anyone else going to be down during marathon time?

HE LIVES!!!

I guess now that summer is officially over, you can't spend all your free time biking to the beer anymore.



honestly... i'm out of the loop when it comes to the status of the FLE. Last I heard the Snow White Mine Train was still under construction and not officially ready to open until 2014.....BUT..... I'm so far out of the loop I don't know the likelyhood of a potential soft opening earlier in time for the christmas/new years rush.

Excellent news!

I've got some F&W functions for most of the night of Friday 10/25, and also have the Wild Africa Trek on the afternoon of Saturday 10/26. Besides those, my schedule is pretty open for any/whatever plans.

As for the Villians meet next week, I still have posted on the first page the list of people who indicated they would be down there around that time. It may not hurt to PM that list with contact information so that you guys know how to get in touch with each other once down there.

Josh, glad you are doing good. I will be there the end of the month in October for all events. As for the Friday the 13th event, I will not be there. I gotta work that day and I am on call that weekend. Unless someone loves me and takes my call, its a no go. I am all over end of October. I can't wait.

All the current information is on the first page of this thread. Just come out. If you want to be connected PM your cell number to Josh at this point. I am normally the keeper of the phone list but I am busy planning my wedding. I will step in if Josh needs me but since he is still alive just check in with him and provide your contact info. We WILL meet up. . .
