Here are my pics from yesterday. Didnt take any professional camera up. Just with my S9+. Plus, was a little bumpy. Watermarked because some people. And these definitely are "exclusive". 

Why wait?

I wonder what they are planning on doing with that pile of dirt to the left as you walk into area 72. Hopefully some theming. 

Maybe a meteor crater?!?! Wishful thinking.

I bet you they did that to test the LED lights

Plenty of other people would still see it for some distance. I still maintain they are testing them during the late day sun as its so bright off that lift it would be very difficult to tell. I dont think the show lights come on till we are at Media day or passholder day. Media day was scheduled to start at 5am Thursday, plenty dark enough to wow the attendees.

Are there anyone there that would be able to test it? I thought staff aren't able to be there right now. 

I drove by the park late afternoon and didn't see any cars the by the offices today, but they could have  been there earlier in the day.

Not only will they open late or not at all, but going to them charge for lockers.  Hopefully be free for pass holders.

I spent like $100 on all season lockers, I doubt they’re going to do free lockers.

everyday they are closed your losing money on your locker if passes don't roll over to 2021.

I am sure the park will give you a big stack of $2 off a funnel cake coupons to make up for it.  :lol:

Heightened Imagery posted two more pics. One of them was overtop the crest. You can look and see it says "locker storage and cargo" I believe where the lockers are going. 

Was it posted today on IG?

I don't like that some of the theming didn't match the video.

Well what did you expect -  the video also had Vortex in it; Racer running backwards, and Soak City on the north end of the park:P

From the looks of it, there is still quite a ways to go. Most of the theming will probably be placed and installed within 2-3 weeks of opening.

I expected the News Van to be blue and near the Orion entrance. 

It’s likely supposed to tie in with the news video they show in the Flight of Fear hangar. Having the van closer to Flight of Fear than Orion allows guests to make that connection between the outside and inside of the hangar. It’s better visual storytelling IMO.

Everybody get to bed early and get a good nights sleep. Media Day starts bright and early in the morning.  :ph34r:

Everyone should post content from Banshee and Mystic Media Days in the morning.  It will be like ESPN Classic.
