    • They are absolutely trimming hard on the first hill post drop and at the end of the bridge before the turn into the woods    they TOLD us they are trimming to help all the new work that was done to last but the trimming on the 1st drop and into the helix felt very similar to  what how it was running before the work.   i just love someone who was NOT at a coaster enthusiast event trying to diminish a fact I am reporting from the event    sheesh    
    • Thanks David! A shame that nothing is going on over there.
    • This is typical for the first year or two of a new coaster at Busch Gardens. Pantheon will probably become part of the "regular" Quick Queue lineup in time. 
    • I've done one coaster event, which was Coaster Campout at CP. Although the experience was awesome, I witnessed what happens when too many coaster enthusiasts get together in one place, during Steel Vengeance ERT... Which is probably why I never put forth the effort to meet up with anyone. I'm not that hardcore.
    • 43 years, actually.  And yeah, those speculating about a "non-trimmed Beast," or even a "less trimmed Beast" ever having opened to the public are just plain wrong.  You just feel it more since they switched to the magnetic trims, which slow the train down much quicker in a shorter period of time (to the same speed) compared to the old skid trims.
    • Good to hear it seemed to be an isolated issue. Yep nothing new with the Beast about the trims but the initial reports were it flies from the curved tunnel to the 2nd lift but seems the results are now: it's smoother but the trims pull harder than ever.
    • Beast has been trimmed hard for about 20 years now, no?   I can’t even begin to estimate the number of times someone on this board has said Beast has been trimmed “more than before” …  yet somehow the trains are still able to make it around the tracks. Seems to me that there’s only so much speed they can take off 😂
    • They would absolutely have to close the roadway (or a portion at a time) if they needed to construct a box culvert/bridge in that area for the coaster to pass through. Especially considering that Beach Blvd is a state route maintained by the DOT, the tunnel would require a whole slew of permitting, approvals, and construction phasing on its own by encroaching in the DOT's right-of-way. Whether this all affects the possibility of this project happening is debatable... but yeah, building a coaster under a state road would be complicated. With that being said, regarding the City's tweets, I guess we just take from that what we will. I'm not sold on this project (or any variation) happening but those drawings also look just a little *too* good to be drawn up by some coaster dorks with spare time. As someone who works in site planning, land development, and roadway - these plans are fun and interesting to dissect no matter how legit they are!
    • I don’t think it would be impossible to construct a tunnel under Beach without having to close it.  And if they absolutely had to close it, they could in the middle of the night.
    • Yesterday on May 19th, I made my second visit of the 2022 season. Since my first visit of the season nearly three weeks ago, a lot of progress has been made on the new dining facility! With a roof and walls, it looks extremely massive than it had before! The construction crews were hard at work building it yesterday. It will definitely look amazing once it is completed! Be sure to check out some photos I took of it while at the park.   
    • We’re there yesterday. And tho day got rained out around 1 pm, and the park was packed?  Had a great time   Voyage was ROUGH.  I mean really bad in row 2.  But we waited an hour and 25 minutes for it (they were using basement queue)
    • EVERY SINGLE row request from us today (both during morning ert and during regular hours) has thus far been granted    I asked with a smile and they all said ok with a smile (on diamondback, beast (row 17 is amazing!   The new beast is SO damn smooth!  Tho yes they are trimming hard in places - not in the helix tho) Orion, racer,  heck. Even on adventure express row request was granted 😁)   im sorry that others aren’t having this experience 😞   and sucks missed Alex by 1 day!
    • I was there Wednesday and was able to request rows on Banshee, Mystic Timbers, Beast, Diamondback, and Orion.
