It was my first time at the park in about 2 years. I was unaware that security made you turn every pocket inside out and you can't even bring your wallet on some rides

I Love Donkeys!

Has anyone heard anything about the adjustments to Zu, which would allow it to run simultaneously with Ka? Last I heard, the park had received the permit to be able to duel them, but hasn't done the proper changes to Zu yet. Is it on hold for the summer, or cancelled all together? Waiting for the other on either ride is painful, especially so on Ka considering the already long lines it gets.

I don't know if they have the permit, but I do remember seeing it being heavily rumored by that Toro op. I also remember him mentioning seeing the new modification parts I believe. It was over the winter in this thread.

Oh come on. Zum has existed on Ka for four seasons now. They have it down to a pretty efficient science at this point. I might be mistaken but I don't think we've ever seen any concrete, physical evidence the rides would run simultaneously, other than the article w/ Chikola in Popular Science last summer talking about how they were working on it.

I'd love for them to run together but acting like its oh so painful to have to wait for an extra 3 minutes for Zum to cycle after you probably already just waited an hour for a 20 second ride on Ka? If you're wasting an hour waiting for Ka you're doing it wrong, and Zum only ever gets a wait like 10% of the time its open.

I Love Donkeys!

There's this video from the Q/A over the winter with the then park president, Neil Thurman, where he states that the park has/had the intention to change the roofing of Zumanjaro. I assume this is as concrete as it gets other than an actual press release.

Also, it isn't terrible waiting for Zu on Ka, but it certainly isn't helping the lines. It's not a massive priority for the park, but it would still be nice to have them duel.
