  1. 1)There's a difference between building around and flat out building over. One's possible and the others just not.

    2)They removed exactly One togo, how exactly is that any kind of streak?

    3)It's not prime real estate, and even if they did build a coaster where you wanted to put it, there's no reason to put the station there.

    4) Like you said, it recently got a repaint. By your logic any ride that hasn't been painted in the last 10 years will be removed.

  2. ^Really? I know an employee at CP who said the trains are completely new, despite the wheels looking worn.


    I'm 100% sure they're not new trains, in addition to the new bodies, all the yellow parts of the lap bars have been replaced and are brand new also adding to the "new" look of the trains, but I can assure you they're the same trains we've been running for 15 years.

    Those trains have not been running for 15 years straight, have they? Even if they didn't buy all new trains this year, I'm willing to bet theirs not a single original piece in them.

  3. 3. What happened to the intamin inverts, was something recalled because last time I checked Volcano was still running and so where the V2's at Six Flags.


    4. Do Mavericks new restraints stop you from getting airtime? The old ones didnt bother me.


    I'm also curious about the intamin inverts. The discussion is around problems with Possessed at Dorney so maybe a quick internet search will clear that up.


    I know V2 at SFGAm is down too right now. Not sure about the California one though.

  4. I don't buy the weather excuse. The weather has not been that bad this year.

    Umm... What rock were you living under? This year was one worst winters We've had up here in a long time. It didn't even get much more than 40 till the last week or two. Simply, they couldn't start ride testing till recently or do some of the maintenance needed. Add the new Hotel Breakers and all the other stuff being built they just didn't have time. Really, I think people are over reacting a bit. Dragsters always down anyway, Wicked Twister seems to be a bigger problem and not the parks fault, Mavericks the only surprise and probably the most disappointing and who cares if mean streak is open anyway. Hopefully they just didn't have enough staff for Skyhawk because it could still be something bigger. Tiki Twirl was announced halfway through winter, is it really a surprise that they didn't finish? No one's complaining about the fact that SF never opens their new rides opening day. Think about it though, they have more rides than any other park to get open on time, with less time to do it than most of them.

  5. I heard King's Island had all of their rides open the first day. What's up CP?


    It has been like this for awhile now. Not sure what the deal is - not enough maintenance staff, not enough ops, not starting training soon enough? I understand Millennium Force hadn't even gotten certified by the state of Ohio for operation until 11AM today. Honestly, I would suggest not even bothering until June or so (which is what we did last year). The only reason I'd go is under conditions like ours - you can get a super cheap and not terrible Sandusky hotel room and you really just want to be inside the gates.

    Well they have a lot less time to prepare, it was still barely above freezing a week ago. Plus it was raining most of the day anyway so not all there fault. Wicked Twister seems like it might have something to do with the Possessed breakdown, maybe some kinda failure was found and its being fixed. TTD is just being TTD but Maverick doesn't break down all that often. Probably ran out of time for testing the new restraints and everything. Or it did just breakdown, you never know. Mean Streak being down makes me think they didn't have enough staff to finish testing in time though.
