    The park opened to guests! I just haven't seen pics of Iron Shark running.

    Does not appear to be open to the public yet. The pics on the facebook page are from the training day for the employees and their families. I am surprised they did this without an official opening date post. Wonder what the holdup is?

    The official date will be coming later this week: Landry's employees test out pleasure pier. They have been advertising it as Summer 2012, which usually officially starts after Memorial Day for most places.
    205 coasters and counting...

    Or the official beginning of summer: near the end of June. :P I never came back to correct myself. I would love to see a testing video of Iron Shark. Is it as quick as the 28 second VIPER coaster that used to be at SFGADV?

    The ride is testing. A pic from the park's facebook. I wish there was a mid inversion action shot.

    The foundation is up for the Star Flyer on the pier. I'm taking note that this is how the foundation will look for a Star Flyer on the Steel Pier in NJ.

    The base for the Star Flyer grows. It's the first attraction I saw parts for but it's going up last. The pic is from the park's fb page.

    This view is pretty cool. The Star Flyer is already on the edge of the pier and over water. The loading platform has grating so the view of the Gulf water below just seeps in Pretty cool.

    The Star Flyer is testing! From the park's facebook page.

    I like the transformation the pier went through. It's a great mix of rides.

    ^I agree, good variety of rides. A ton of people were following their facebook page, they aren't going to have problems with people coming as much as having not enough parking.

    Hopefully this pier stays intact for a long time without a hurricane attack.
