  1. Im surprised that the cable wasn't inspected every morning before opening. Xcelerator usually goes through a more rigorous opening procedure than the others because of the nature of the launch system. Why inspect the cable every month when it could be easily done in 30 min before the ride opens in the morning.


    Are you going to inspect over 400 feet of cable in 30 minutes?


    Robb: I'm not saying that I know more than anyone else nor am I an engineer by any means. My apologies if it came out that way.


    Moving on.....Glad Xcel is back in operation.

  2. ^This was probably because the lift is directly after the station so in the slight chance the pinch wheels weren't able to slow the incoming train enough it wouldn't hit the lift approach. (Pinch wheels just before lift)

    Just a thought.

    I'm a certified operator for a B&M with rain mode and all it does is slow down the pinch wheels bringing the train into the station from the transfer/station approach.

  3. You make a "reservation" for the attraction of your choice via the Flash Pass device so it will hold your place in line for you. During your wait time you can do other things (Eat, shop etc...)

    When it's your time to ride an alert will be sent to your device. Each flash pass enabled attraction has a dedicated entrance for FP users. (Usually via the attraction's exit)

    Once you reach the loading platform an operator will "scan" your FP and you will join the line on the loading platform.

    The Platinum FP offers the least amount of waiting and allows you to ride twice without getting out of your seat.

    Hope this helps. Flash Pass Info
