I'm assuming that the price for attendance will be roughly the same as last year? I can't wait to come down. It will be my first visit to this park.

I don't remember what 2016's pricing was, but I'm guessing 2017's will be a little cheaper since we don't have to cover all of the room rental cost that DreamMore has attached to it.

That's not written in stone though, so it might end up being the same depending on what SFoG would like to offer attendees. In either case, I can't imagine it being more expensive than last year.

You do realize that you won't see 95% of the park, right? And what you do see will probably be torn up and/or under winter maintenance.

I will say that after my chat with the park yesterday, I'm pleasantly surprised at what they intend to do to compete with the awesomeness that was Dollywood hosting last year.

Yeah, I know I won't see much of the park. I've always heard that operations were horrendous, but at least I will have actually visited the park at least once, haha. I'm planning to come, but things can change between now and then.

Who in the world told you operations were horrendous? The only ride in the park with any operational problems that I've ever seen is Supes, but otherwise it's one of the nicer well run parks out there.

They had some issues with operations this year. It was pretty bad from some of the comments I've heard.

It was the same in the fall of 2015. My wife is usually a good sport, but said she never wants to go back there from our last two experiences.

This will be my first Winter Warm Up and I am really looking forward to it. But it seems like there is not as much excitement about it this year as in years past. I am just going by looking at past discussions on here about previous Winter Warm Ups.

It is an "off" year so to speak for our region. No one is building a new coaster (aside from the kiddie one at Dollywood) so lots of people aren't interested right off the bat. Hopefully the addition of SFoT and Kings Island to talk about their coasters will help out some. Plus, there are other things throughout the day that hopefully will make it turn out better than expected.

Unfortunately I'm gonna have to sit this one out, literally, since I'm unable to drive or really walk right now. Take plenty pictures and notes!
