  1. One thing to keep in mind the park will close Copperhead Strike early for 50 nights for their fireworks and drone show, so if you want a night ride on that you need to figure out when they will be closing it. With that said Fury 325 is a great night ride and would be my choice as the one not to miss at Carowinds.
  2. According to Queue Wait times, Lightning Rod has been down most of the week. Is this correct? Anyone been at the park today or this week to confirm if this is the case?
  3. I went opening day and talked to a manager about this and they said it was removed. The reason they gave was people were breaking the rules , they were going through the single rider line and then inside of riding with the person they were assigned they would wait for other members of their party in the single rider line to come up to the station and ride with them. Seems like a couple of bad apples have ruined this for everyone. I'm sure they can revisit in the future but for now it doesn't seem like it is an option.
  4. Not at the park but I saw a posted wait of 190 minutes of GhostRider. It is a great ride but no where near a 3 hour plus wait.
  5. Wildcat needs to go or have RMC come in and fix it or maybe the titan track can address it. It was not a good ride at all during my trip earlier this year. I found Lightning Racer to be the much better GCI, but it isn't anywhere near an elite GCI, so I could see Hershey move away from it for a water park expansion.
  6. The way Dollywood has set up the single rider line for Lightning Rod is really great if you are willing to use it. I don't remember it being that way in 2019, the last time I visited the park, but I was able to lap Lightning Rod at will over the past 2 days. Crowds were light on Friday. Park was busier on Saturday but not as busy as I was expecting for a Holiday Weekend.
  7. The dispatches on Candymonium are not quick. I notice the same thing earlier this year. They ran 3 trains and basically didn't dispatch until the 3rd train was already around the course. The only time they were successful keeping them moving is if they had 2 certain ride ops checking restraints, they did better, but once one of them took a break or operate the control panel, the dispatches took forever.
  8. Last Saturday: Ravine Flyer II- 20-30 minutes but was getting longer as more people left the water park. Only ran one train. Steel Dragon- 15-20 minute wait. 5 of it was due to a breakdown. Wacky Shack- 15 minute wait Other 3 coasters- 5 minute wait.
  9. I went to Kennywood for the first time today and came away impressed. Phantom's operations were quite good as was the ride. I got about 8 rides on it, most of them late in the day. My type of ride with all of the air time. And they really pushed those trains through. I actually went to Steel Curtain first and was on the first train of the day. They opened it about 30 minutes late. Felt it was a bit slow but I really enjoyed that one air time hill. They are running one train and it sounds they will be doing that for a while. They managed the line well as I came back later in the day and rode it again after a 60 minute wait. Second ride was an improvement. One of the inversion as quite whippy. This is my second favorite ride in the park. The 3 woodies were overall much better than Hershey's. Of the the three I enjoyed Jack Rabbit the most as the air time from the double down in the back row as outstanding even if much of the rest of the ride was average. Racer was better than expected but it was the one coaster where the ops could improve Saw a rollback on Sky Rocket. They had to evac riders. First half of the ride was good, but the second half was pretty weak. Only rode it once. It was about what I expected. Exterminator had a long line but I rode it as a single rider so it was spinning a lot.
  10. I went yesterday after going to Coastermania. I was in the park for 3.5 hours. Didn't see anything similar to the video. I saw a few cases of kids trying to jump the railings but they were not cutting in line, but rather being stupid. Ravine Flyer II is a great ride so I'm glad I made the stop.
  11. I came from California to visit on Saturday and Sunday. It was actually closed on Saturday. I had to change my plans and go to American Dream, but I went on Sunday and it was completely empty. Got on everything besides Kingda Ka. Only had to get off Toro when they cleaned it. I stayed for about 4.5 hours.
  12. I will be interested in seeing how the extra rows and slight changes in profiling the ride have an impacted it compared to RailBlazer and Wonder Woman. I have rode both of those a bunch and really enjoy them. I will be going the second Saturday in July. It is a nice park, been once before in the fall so I'm looking forward to Aftershock because that wasn't running in my last visit.
  13. I have yet to get the rollback, but TTD has been 50/50 in terms of running when I have been in the park. I seen plenty rollbacks.
