Well the later opening for Tantrum is really annoying for me, I already asked for some time off on Saturday to go to DL to check out Tantrum. :x

Note that it says "one of the first" not "the" first. It can open Memorial Day weekend and youd still be "one of the first" the following week. Until its official from the park, take a chill pill.

On the link from Kiss 98.5, it states that Tantrum’s grand opening party is also on June 1st, though.

There's soft openings and grand openings. Not saying it wont be the first time its open, just saying to pump the brakes until DL themselves say its June 1st.

Little trip report of today.

Finally got the guts to ride mind eraser again after several years of avoiding it due to its roughness, and it wasn’t as bad as I remember it. Tantrum was also testing today, two trains. (Guessing the third was in storage) In other news... Rolling Thunder’s joystick SNAPPED so it’ll be closed for a few days, how about that... Anyways, Predator was open (while boomerang is still closed, what a surprise...), and the first drop is actually smooth for once, they really got down on retracking it, and it’s overall a better experience now, if only they could retrack all of it and get a 2nd train. Moto was down for most of the day, and Viper was open (closed for a half hour - an hour for somebody reason).

Rode:

Ride Of Steel - 5x
Mind Eraser - 1x
Predator - 1x

^ Ah, well it was closed today, it's unreliable. Honestly in a few years they should gut it and get a Premier Sky Rocket II.

Now THAT would be a great fit for the park! And it would probably fit in Boomerang’s plot of land.

By the way went to the park yesterday and the predator gave the most smooth ride i have ever felt on that thing. i got off and didn't need a back doctor so that was nice! and they were testing tantrum like 5 to 6 times an hour so that was also pretty cool to see
