Odd, as when we were recently at Roadside America we saw several issues with the layout. Most dramatically, the "Strausburg Train" which was supposed to go back and forth with automation to have the engine run around the train didn't work all the time, frequently leaving the train pushing the wrong car or derailing something. I would kindly point this out to the staff but they were grumpy and didn't seem to care about the issue. Oh well.

Never been to Northlandz but based on threads like this I doubt I will. I remember watching a clip on the news about it years ago and it sounded so cool. I would hate to go and be disapponitned.
