I just have trouble keeping track of this generation of heavily themed, often-automotive trains a la several recent RMCs + at least one GCI. I think I like them all, but it's hard to get excited about any particular one.

Personally I like the clean look of Twisted Cyclones trains much better than these. That said, I generally really don't care what coaster trains look like and I'm still totally stoked to ride this. I still can't get over that this park with this line-up is getting an RMC. Hopefully we'll see some testing soon.

Don't mind if I do.

Thanks Bill for the heads up!


That's a crazy good deal! I wish they had some FLP deals for Platinum pass holders. Haven't seen anything myself although if I was planning to go on a weekend, even with my PP it'd be cheaper to do the Admission/FLP sale deal!

I jumped on the deal. I plan to visit sometime before Memorial Day weekend (targeting mid-April) so I can upgrade my days admission to a platinum pass before going to Worlds of Fun.

Based on the progress of Twisted Timbers, it looks likely it'll be open in that window.

I'm sure that's the plan but I'm not sure how you expect a definitive answer on this.

Media Day will be on Thursday 3/22, although I don't know if TPR members/admins will be allowed to attend as it appears that another group got the primary invitation ( :cry: ). Barring major technical issues, I would consider TT also soft-opening on Friday's (3/23) Preview Day confirmed at this point. :airtime:
