  1. It rarely operated. Maybe 1-3 times a year average. The park started using shuttles in recent years. One less ride that they had to staff. Sent from my SM-F916U using Tapatalk
  2. No, just cleaning up years of neglect and bad decisions. Sent from my SM-F916U using Tapatalk
  3. Idlewild has plans for a new major attraction. I believe it is scheduled for 2022 but may be delayed due to covid. Sent from my SM-F916U using Tapatalk
  4. There's not been confirmation on what will become of those rides. I would think that the park will retain Kangaroo and Bayern Kurve due to their uniqueness. Maybe refurb them over time and unretire them at a later date. Paratrooper and Volcano were both fairly old and have had some reliability issues. I can understand wanting more reliable operations and not being nickel and dimed for non-warranty repairs. But you can still buy brand new versions from Huss and Beston if they really wanted to.

  5. Depending on who checks the seat belt, just getting it to click isn't enough. They want you to pull on the loop and show it tighten at least 1". Sent from my SM-F916U using Tapatalk
  6. Rougarou is a decent ride. I’m just not a fan of that style of restraint. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Blue Streak, Corkscrew and Gemini are all testing now. Looks like they’re training ops. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. That was due to the engineering at that time. Loch Ness, Vortex, Steel Phantom, Anaconda, etc. They all had that Arrow quirkiness with flow, transitions, trains and restraints. By today's standards it's all antiquated technology and engineering.
  9. It's a decent ride as far as Arrow loopers go. Suffers from the same issues as others designed the same way. In my opinion the only thing it really needed was fresh trains and a paint job. But I only get to ride it 2 or 3x a year so more seasoned riders may disagree. My guess is it came down to not wanting to invest more into the ride. They can do a lot with the space.
  10. With college classes starting they have a harder time staffing everything. So that usually means staggered opening of rides and stands. I would expect all rides open except for Black Widow which is down for repair. Pittsburgh Plunge and Raging Rapids will depend on the weather.
  11. Perhaps this could also be a dueling Intamin like the one that opened in China. I know folks want the Raptors but I'd argue that Intamins design would result in more riders per hour which is something that a busy park like SFGA would benefit from.
  12. I'm thinking more about the Two Face story. Complex duality could be his split personalities. Chance and fate are his obsession. The creature in the trees could be a bat. So perhaps a reference to batman. Perhaps dueling coasters. Batman vs. Two Face
  13. Since it's the #12 with confetti in the background couldn't it just be that many days until the announcement?
