  1. You might wanna add that to the Terms of Service / Posting Rules thread. Seems kinda harsh to go full on lifetime ban based on a rule that's not actually part of the list of rules.
  2. They wouldn't have set an opening date if they didn't think with 99% certainty they were going to make it. That's why they waited until now to actually announce it. Unless somebody manages to set the damned thing on fire again, it'll be open. Iron Reef at Knott's is still on schedule to be open on May 15th. The Puente Hills Mall is open 365 days a year, so you should be good there.
  3. I'm really impressed that "Opening Late Spring" didn't become "Opening Early Summer". Good job everyone, I'm really excited for Twisted Colossus 121!
  4. Guest: "Why is the ride closed?" Me: "We're closed due to the rain" Guest: "When will it be back open?" Me: "....when it stops raining."
  5. Rumor has it that GhostRider's long-overdue refurb is going to be next year's big project. It seems to fit the current MO of the park... alternating years of new attractions with fixing up existing ones. Idk what could realistically go in the Windseeker space, because it's such a small footprint.
  6. Can you explain to me how wet track can cause a Roll Back when Trains Travel Faster on Wet Track? I don't know the physics behind it, but that's what happens apparently. I heard from a friend who is a team lead that whatever part / system they were working on failed and now they have to basically redo everything they just did. There was also mention of potential overheating of the launch system.
  7. It could have been just a regular RTL. I've evacuated Silver Bullet from the lift hill twice, and both times the ride was back up the next day.
  8. Yikes! It was supposed to come back up yesterday, but I figured they just kept it closed because of the weather. Ghost Rider was supposed to go down for this coming week, but it looks like they decided to wait on that until Xcel goes back up. Was it down for scheduled maintenance in the first place or why? And why now another 2 week delay. This is California, it barely rained. There is no storm coming lol. It was scheduled to be down from April 14-24. Xcel goes down in even light rain, because wet track = rollbacks. I haven't found anyone who knows exactly what the deal is... ap
  9. Iron Reef update: Track, ride vehicles, screens, and projectors are all in place. Most of the work now is adding scenery and working on the building facade. Park is hinting at an employee preview on May 13th. We'll see.

  11. Each camera takes a photo of one row, and they're place don both sides of the track so that nobody gets their photo cut off by being on the wrong side. The park is boxed in on all sides, and a significant portion of the land (Ghost Town) is kind of untouchable. There is hair all over the park, and I don't understand it. Its like working in a barber shop when I come in for an opening shift and sweep up. Glad you enjoyed your visit!
  12. Both options are being considered. Option one is to just get Riptide back up and running. Option two is to remove Riptide and Boomerang and put something new in that space. Right now, the more likely option seems to be waiting for Iron Reef to open and then working on getting Riptide back up.
  13. Oh wow, I didn't realize it was for so long. I thought it was gonna be a quick couple days. I felt bad at work on Wednesday when I had to tell the cool tourists from Australia that it was down.
  14. Possible, but I'd be really surprised. Hard to know, since we haven't really been able to see the station / queue area, and plus there's all the electrical to be done once the structure is in place.
  15. The rumor mill is saying that Iron Reef is behind schedule, but Knott's is holding TrioTech's butts to the fire for May 15th.
