Regarding the Harley Quinn Crazy Coaster, what's meant by head-to-head high flybys? Also, what's an Immelmann inversion? Thanks.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

The park just announced Harley Quinn will officially open on June 17th, and SP preview is Saturday the 16th from 0930-1030. For the rest of the day Sat 16, purchasing a Harley Quinn T-Shirt gets you on, and I'm guessing SP will still work too, I believe they did the same thing with Joker if I remember correctly.

I Love Donkeys!

Little bit late, but an Immelman is a turn that was originally used in WWI by a German pilot named Max Immelman and later adapted to coasters. Basically its half of a loop followed by a roll back to upright. It's very similar to a dive loop, but taken in the opposite direction. (Wow, an AP Euro paper on WWI dogfights actually was useful) The park is using head-to-head flybys as a buzz term that means that the two trains will pass each other in opposite directions at a "Combined speed of 70 MPH", which can be read as each train is going 35 MPH.

I'm really curious to see how I like Harley Quinn when I ride it next month. I actually enjoy Super Loops quite a bit, and I think this one will feel more like a "roller coaster" due to the immelmanns/dive loops. Hopefully the big bulky harnesses are reasonably comfortable.

I just got an email that says everything is postponed until June 23.

HARLEY QUINN Opening Date Changed

The HARLEY QUINN Crazy Coaster opening has been postponed until Sunday, June 24.

A few days ago we announced that the HARLEY QUINN Crazy Coaster will open next Sunday. However, we never open a ride until it’s perfect, and therefore we have decided to postpone the public opening of Harley Quinn Crazy Coaster until Sunday, June 24.

Please note that the delay also impacts our Season Pass and Member preview. On Saturday, June 23, all Season Pass holders and Members can come to our special sneak peek from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Just show your Pass card at the side entrance (located next to SUPERMAN Ultimate Flight) to start dueling with other riders.

If you do not have a Season Pass or Membership, you can purchase our limited edition Harley Quinn t-shirt, available at the Daily Planet gift shop and you’ll get an exclusive early ride time on June 23 from 10:30 a.m. to park close. Plus don’t miss the chance to meet Harley Quinn, one of the world’s most iconic Super Villains at scheduled times that day.

Thank you for your patience. We are excited to see you at the opening!

For some reason, I didn't receive that email.

Can you see the donkey in my toast?

Dang, June 17 would have worked perfectly for me since I have to pick up folks at the Oakland Airport mid afternoon anyways.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Crazy Coaster is testing, and it sounds crazy loud. Looks quite fun as a support ride though!

Not gonna lie...it looks pretty badass to me, and I kinda like how loud it is too. I would LOVE to see a traveling fair version of this someday!
