  1. ^My guess is that it's not on the list of rides for Spring Time in the Park because they're waiting for the new trains.



    Springtime in the Park is less than two weeks away, it's not gonna be up and running even if the trains aren't on the track by now.


    Don't forget it is also getting a new paint job that looks really sharp by the way. So even if there were trains on site, they wouldn't be able to cycle them for testing.




    And Comet Hollow is not gonna be buttoned up in time either.

  2. I could have sworn that at some point through the early nineties it was also brown ( I think the blue came when Great Bear was built and they did a minor facelift of Comet Hollow- mostly paint.) Also, and I'm probably mistaken, didn't it start out with a pitched roof when it was first built? Maybe I'm mixing it up with the original Wildcat.


    edit: I was mistaken, it was actually just had exposed trusses, like a pavilion. And it had Brown paint from some point in the eighties until 1995.

  3. It was nothing but trouble for the first couple of seasons. And I will say it's line isn't anywhere near as bad as Hypersonic was, but it's nearly always the worst line in the park these days. It's a good ride, and an experience not to pass up. It is really only my 4th or 5th favorite coaster in the park these days, however.


    It is neat to ride Volcano and I-305 in close succession, just to see how Intamin has progressed (and what delicious madness they created) in over a decade.

  4. Now that I think of it, I wonder how BGW will handle QQ on Verbolten, the first big ride built since they started did the program. There last big coaster is a bit of oddball too- Griffon just gives you an express lane past most of the queue right into the station and no designated row (although I suppose that's just because it's a three-row, 10 seat-across anomaly..ugh, never mind, thinking out loud.)


    That would be rediculously stupid... They could just have the Fast Lane users walk up the exit...


    That wouldn't work on ride with separate loading and unloading areas (Like Volcano, FoF, Boo Blasters..). They would probably need space to separate fastlane users from exiting guests to better distinguish the two apart and staff an attendant to manage them*. BGW's Quick Queue does it similarly in most cases, users enter on the exit or unloading side, but most or all had some form of a separate entrance or small queue to manage Quick Queue guest and keep them out of the way of exiting guests and vice-versa.



    *I'm pretty sure it just another duty for the ride op on the unload side of the station at BGW rather than someone's specific task, so having a queue are for FL/QQ guests just makes there job a little easier.
