Is there any update on why Apocalypse is closed?

 

They must be hard at work with that late summer retracking like you said.

Yeah that was a stupid thing to think. But seriously, is there?

 

From what I have heard: There may be a problem with a section of track. This is just what I have heard.

 

^ edit: you beat me to it

Wow lots of big name coasters down all over the country.

 

Magic Mountain - X2 & "Pocky"

6 Flags Great Adventure - El Toro

Kings Dominion - Intimidator 305

 

What's going on??? Is this some secret government program to limit our fun before the end of summer? That Obama...

Some re-tracking work

Apocalypse is currently closed as well but they finally cleaned up behind Apocalypse

In case you didn't know where we are!

X2 is currently closed after the lift chain broke.

No 2014 activity to report over by Déjà Vu's former spot

Maybe one day Déjà Vu's footers will be removed, not likely though!

Maybe the 2014 attraction will be for the water park

^ Nice update! Were they actually re-tracking Apocalypse, or were they doing an inspection?

 

Possibly an inspection but i can see that some work has been done to that particular turn

This was how the turn looked about two weeks ago prior to the closure

They've done something to this particular turn maybe not re-tracking but something happened that forced the park to close the ride

Any news on X2? I heard it was down.

 

That would figure.... I had season passes back in 2001 and 2002.... I went probably 10 times in the 2 years... x always broke.... then... went again 2006/7 about 4 times.... x always broke...I swear, i'll never get to ride it... hopefully WCB its open...

I never rode it. Last time I was there was a few years ago when they were upgrading the ride. Next week I'll be there and I don't think it'll be up. I don't think I'm destined to ride X2.

 

 

LOL were in it together!!!

If I am correct those boards on the recently re-tracked portion are for trims. Right?

So are we safe to assume Apocalypse will be back up and running for WCB? X2, I'm a little concerned about though. Only time will tell at this point.

 

Knowing SFMM, it's not safe to assume anything until the ride actually reopens. I want to think the park will want to get both rides open as quickly as possible as they are two of the headliners, but I could also see them saying "we've only got one week until Labor Day, and after that we'll be dead until Fright Fest, so if we can't open it this week we can wait until then to have it going again." I would be a bit surprised if Apocalypse isn't ready assuming there isn't more to the problem, but if X2 did break the chain I'd expect it to be a few weeks before the ride reopens.

 

I doubt that the scheduled ERT during WCB plays much into the reopening schedules, but I do hope that if one or both of the rides are unavailable the park will substitute additional attractions to replace them.

Hi everyone... again..

 

SFMM on Columbus day? good, bad, busy, dead? I have had to tweak my itinerary and will be hitting the park on the 14th oct instead of the last week of September

 

Columbus Day is always extremely dead! It's a really great day to go! Just watch out for all the one train operations.

 

SWEEEEEET!! I may not need to fork out for a flash pass now!

That happened last year too, when we arrived at the park and were waiting to get in, they told us that the itinerary had been changed and we got ERT on a different ride, I can't remember which ones were changed.

Went to the park yesterday. X2 was closed all day and the train was on the lift hill. Of course Apocalypse was closed as well. Even though the parking lot was filled to the dirt lot half of the second lot was closed due to the building of some sort of ramp. Without that I'd say it'd probably take about 2 full parking lots and 2/3 of the 3rd lot. I think the park seemed busier because people were scattered due to X2 being closed, but we were there from 11-745 and managed the following in order Goliath (15 min wait back row), Drop of Doom (25 min wait), walked to Scream and they only had 1 train line was down the stairs which isn't worth it IMO so we skipped that, Batman (15 min wait row 7). Went to lunch around 2, came back around 4 and went on Full Throttle (45 min wait back row), Superman (20 min wait with BOTH sides open front row!), Ninja (5 min wait for the front) and finally Riddlers (5 min wait back row). For how busy it was and the fact X2 and Apocalypse were closed it wasn't too bad of a day and every ride the operators really seemed on top of their game with quick dispatches. I thought it'd be slower as kids are back in school or in Orange County going back today, but apparently I was wrong with that assumption. After the Labor Day wkknd it should slow down quite a bit by the middle of Sept hopefully!

 

One thing I noticed there is a fence across from Full Throttle (directly to the left of the new Full Throttle Wings) and fully blocks you from walking by the old Monorail station, Flashback area and those bathrooms. That wasn't there the night Full Throttle opened. Tim Burkhart was quoted saying something would go in Flashbacks old spot and that is quite a bit of room for either the park (probably enough for a Huss Frisbee or even a small Euro Fighter) or even for Hurricane Harbor. I wouldn't be surprised to see the 2014 attraction (If it isnt Iron Colossus) go there.
