So did an answer ever materialise on why it was actually down for so long and why all of a sudden that issue has been resolved?

Nice footage, by far the best I’ve seen yet. I think the drop will be great. It looks like the ride itself is ready to go, how’s the station and exit building looking?

yeah, drop should be fun. i do wonder what total drop height is. because the bottom of the drop is still maybe 15 feet from the ground. 150 foot lift, 10 foot or so down to the holding brake, and 15 feet above ground = 120-125 foot drop? but whatever, it looks like a fun coaster. looking forward to getting on it soon.

the station roof looks done. i did see the control booth kind of boxed in. the exit and gift shop look like they still need the final stucco, or whatever they plan to finish off in. overall, still looks like a lot to do. i think you can see some of the queue with a white curved thing over it in the video from the sky tower.

i was only there about an hour to walk around and check out the coaster. nothing was happening at xcelerator while i was there around 5-6pm.

bought a knott's magnet. figured i should have something from the closest park to me. i like these 3d type laser cut magnets some of the parks have now.

I'm super stoked for them to start testing the lighting on Hangtime, hopefully soon. That's gonna be really neat to see when its operating.

I spent the afternoon at the park yesterday. Even though it was raining everywhere else, it was cloudy but dry at Knott's. The clouds dissipated a little bit in mid-late afternoon, which made for a warm day.

Xcelerator was testing the red train all day, but it's still not open to riders.

I also saw Hangtime testing around 7:00. Several people have already posted great footage, so I'll spare you my crappy iPhone video. :lol:

I like how Knott's posted Peanuts comics on the construction wall. This one was noteworthy.

I'm pretty sure they're trolling us.

HAHAHAHA, that is so funny! I feel all Cedar Fair constructions walls should have the comic on it.
