It wasn't last year. I walked on front seat of Voyage. Never waited more than 2 trains for anything the entire day, and that was with Raven and Legend both on single-train operation.

However, with the Timberliners coming, it might be busier this year. I wouldn't count on walk-ons for Voyage.

Let's see, probably SFStL and Holiday World. I doubt I will make any others, but you never know.

Aside from some extra enthusiasts, I don't think too many people will show up opening day just for the new trains. I might make a weekend out of it and go there on Sunday, too. Gotta get some photos of the new trains that weekend. -Mike

I think you're right, my concern for a lack of walk-ons will be the addition of enthusiasts that will camp out on Voyage. However, I think walk-ons for Legend and Raven will be in abundance.

Nick and I are planning to make a weekend out of it as well. Hope to see you there, Mike!

After last year, they need to have a smooth opening. I still refer to last year's Spring Fling as Rain: The Event.

Maybe I can pull some strings and make it to Holiday World or Six Flags St. Louis. Maybe.
