One thought on “Anniversary Week”
I was there yesterday for the Mine Ride and I got in line around 9:30am and only a few people were there, but by 10am there was a decently SMALL line that fit into the first two trains of the day. Of course that’s the mine ride in early morning. For some reason the Mine Ride didn’t get a ceremony and I got a sweet sixteen pin. The sweet sixteen means 16 rollercoasters, that’s what the people handing them out said. I guess because there old they need to get rid of them. Also, there were so few people, they gave the ice cream and pins to people as they got off the SkyHawk. 😀
