Half truth half advertisement?

"I can't describe anything clearly about the park." "I can't describe anything clearly about the park." "I can't describe anything clearly about the park." "I can't describe anything clearly about the park." STEEL VENGEANCE!! "I can't describe anything clearly about the park." "I can't describe anything clearly about the park."

At least she got Steel Vengeance right and said it's best coasters in the country.

And 10 hours at CP is like Apocalypse Now? pfffft. Whatevs. I'm old as hell and weigh twice as much as she does and we did 3 days with 10+ miles a day walking rope drop to close. That park is a cinch to walk, it's all flat!

That was my reddit. It ran like that all day. It is sad that the MCBR still isn't a block, but it is two train ops in the end so it isn't a big deal. It 100% was running with three trains in the morning. I remember seeing the transfer track empty while the coaster was actually running multiple times this morning which was really nice to see. I never saw it stop on the MCBR for a block test though.

Just wondering, I am going to the park late August. I plan to get FL+ one of the 2 days I am visiting for. How long will FL+ lines be on a Monday in late August? I think that is my best bet for short SV wait times. Also, should SV be running 3 trains by then?
Darien Lake is my home park... :?r

As with everything with Cedar Point (and amusement parks) it can vary drastically. In reality they probably shouldn't be *too* bad (15-30 minutes on major ones... maybe?), but it depends on the ride, the type of day, etc.

Given what others have seen, it will most likely be running 3 trains by late August.

I wonder if we'll live to see the day when people stop mistaking this board for the Psychic Friends Network.

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

thefishhh on Reddit wrote:Steel Vengeance was testing with 3 trains this morning. They reprogrammed it so they can dispatch early with the two trains. Right now it has to wait until the wave turn until it dispatches. It climbs the lift hill slow until the final break run is clear (which is two different blocks). 3 train ops are definitely showing signs of progression. Id say it will have them by August.


The fact that they don't need to wait for the next train to completely return is fantastic, and three trains testing is good news as well.


That's how it was running during the first rider benefit. A line all the way down the tunnel and through 1 switchback took about 25 minutes. Granted, fastlane wasn't an issue that day.
