  1. From my experience, most of the rides will run in even heavy rain. There was a brief heavy rainstorm today and Steel Curtain was one of the few rides that stopped operating for a bit. The biggest issue on a day like this is if Kennywood closes early due to weather. But if there's no thunder, you should be able to get on everything without much waits.
  2. Kennywood just hit 35 dispatches in an hour on Phantom and didn't stack once! This crew is amazing.
  3. Reading through old posts, I see the park used to close most of their coasters in the rain. However, that was before the park was purchased by Herschend and I know Silver Dollar City and Dollywood are rather aggressive about running their rides in rain. Does anyone know if Storm Chaser and Lightning Run still close in rain?
  4. Here's a picture of the cable spooler from yesterday. I was there on Saturday and Sunday. The cool, drizzly weather kept the Memorial Day weekend crowds to the level of a standard summer weekday.
  5. The Palace chain is very good at keeping the list of open and closed attractions up to date. For example, Lake Compounce listed Boulder Dash as opening late a few weekends ago and sure enough it opened around 1-2 pm. The most interesting thing to me is that Noah's Ark was moved from closed indefinitely to temporarily closed, so maybe they're finally willing to reopen soon it after it was closed for covid.
  6. I don't mind the delayed ride openings since Kennywood is up front about it. A lot of parks let you in the park before the official park opening and then have you wait for rope drop. From experience, Kennywood doesn't seem to let you in until the official opening, so it ends up feeling similar to me.
  7. I think all the Saturdays in June plus the Memorial Day weekend Sunday had 10 pm closures before this update.
  8. Last week, they were giving people the option to use the physical device or their phone.
  9. Boulder Dash in the very front row is still incredible, but the ride definitely suffers in other rows from a roughness and reduced airtime perspective. I will happily wait how ever many extra trains needed for a front row ride on Boulder Dash. I think all but one of my rides in the past few seasons have been up front.
  10. I think adults can ride it during normal hours if they go to town hall/guest relations and get a card stating they're an enthusiast.
  11. Did it look like the Titan Track that was announced it would be getting or standard wood?
  12. Looks like Ride Entertainment has a used skywarp available for sale for immediate delivery from California. I'm almost certain this is Harley Quinn. I'm surprised they went with an animation over actual ride footage, but I'm guessing footage of the ride operating was rare. And the video is quieter with that background music than it would be if the ride were actually running. The one weird thing with the animation is that it shows the ride operating with just one half of the train. Maybe that's just an accidental omission in the animation?
  13. This is the right sized park for a Raptor, but I wonder if this is one of those family hybrid coasters RMC recently announced since the park has mostly had families in my visits. But whatever RMC they add, I'm sure it will have plenty of airtime and this is a very pleasant surprise.
  14. ^ I'll be there the day prior. I really hope Phantom is open (and I'm cautiously optimistic since it did test over the weekend), but with Kennywood I can never be too sure.
  15. Looks like Phantom's Revenge is now on the temporarily closed list. This park can't catch a break with signature rides being closed.
  16. ^ Last Friday, Superman and Wicked Cyclone still had hour plus waits due to the reduced capacity. Six Flags New England is dropping the mask mandate starting on Saturday for vaccinated guests, so I suspect they may start loading all rows on rides sooner rather than later. I think every Six Flags park that reopened started by skipping rows and gradually switching to loading each row.
  17. I was at the park again this weekend and there are two observations I wanted to note. First, while the park was still skipping rows on several rides, the operators were trying to pair single riders up. I was asked to be paired on both Wicked Cyclone and Superman. I didn't mind since I'm fully vaccinated, but it's puzzling the park is skipping rows on rides but willing to pair different parties in the same row. Two, Goliath's sign was removed.
  18. I'm seeing a few posts online that Intimidator 305's cable may have snapped. Is anyone there to confirm? It's listed as closed on Queue Times.
  19. Glad to see Steel Curtain open again! Any idea what's wrong with Black Widow? I think that ride has been closed for longer than Steel Curtain at this point.
  20. For an initial test, Jersey Devil was moving very fast. Those drops in the back row should be crazy.
  21. I agree Velocicoaster is amazing. I got several rides on it this past week. I also didn't mind waiting in that queue line one bit because the outdoor section had fantastic views of the coaster and the indoor section has a lot of cool items and videos to look at. Plus, the line flies. Usually I only waited about half the posted time unless the ride broke down (which it only did once for me in all the times I rode it).
  22. The section being replaced appears to be the second drop, so it's definitely not to add a second train. Maybe they thought it was running too smoothly and they wanted it to better train young guests for the older, rougher coasters.
  23. There is a photo floating around of Slime Streak missing track. Seems like they may be retracking a section of it already?
  24. ^ I was the one in the Waldameer shirt. I definitely saw you a few times. Scream was running one of the back towers in space shot mode around 6 pm when I was heading towards Wicked Cyclone. It was shocking how fast Superman's crew was getting trains out considering it has been a long time since the park last opened.
  25. For Wicked Cyclone, they allowed you to wait by the turnstile if you wanted either the front or back (at least the operator between 6-7:30).
