Nothing is wrong, it's minor track work, but expect some downtime in the next week or so

 

Just because I'm curious. . . Do you have actual proof of this, or are you just guessing???

 

Not trying to be an A$$, just wondering how you came to this conclusion.

 

I only ask, because I think this is the first I've hear of an iBox coaster needing track work...?

 

Sorry for not responding sooner. Twisted's open again as per the other poster. There are a ton of new AXIS surveillance cameras being added to the park in many areas. Look around the station ceilings when you're there. On the same note, the Wifi is being upgraded and expanded woot woot

Regarding the intermittent track work that was done on Twisted Colossus earlier this week, does anyone know if it will be continued next week? I am visiting the park for the first time this coming Wednesday and I am a bit worried that the park is going to continue doing track work during the week and then have TC open for Friday through Sunday. If anyone has any insight on this I'd appreciate it.

I was at the park about a week ago, and noticed that the RV Parking lot had been converted to "Preferred Parking". I'm sure this is just temporary, until they finish installing the solar panels. Once summer rolls around, they'll need to dedicate those spaces to RVs again.

As of now, there's nothing planned for next week (subject to change of course...) Enjoy your first visit

I saw Corey Feldman at the park on Thursday about an hour before park close. I was in line for revolution, walk on, front row and I guess I got in line right before him. He had a huge dude (bodyguard I assume) with him and one other young guy. I didn't realize he was right behind me in line or I probably would have given him front row, instead of waiting he rode right behind me. He was wearing a White baseball cap that said Faith on it.

 

Didn't realize it was him till a girl squeeled and hugged him after the ride and then I looked. Saw him again on the summit walking towards Superman and gave him a knowing whats up and told the other dudes that just walked by that it was Corey Feldman.

 

First time I seen a celebrity at an amusement park.

Still referring to Corey Feldman as a celebrity is being generous

I thought the same thing.

So did SFMM finally come to their senses and completely ditch VR on Revolution? They announced last year's VR at the beginning of February, but there doesn't seem to be any signs that it's returning this year. The sign on the station also says, "Classic Revolution" now.

I thought it was fun to experience once or twice, but it wasn't worth the 90-minute wait when other rides had 20-30 minute waits.

What do you guys think?

I hope it doesn't come back. As you said, I hate the wait times and won't do it. I love the ride for what it is, now that they removed the "horse collars." I don't need VR to enhance my experience. I love Rev for what it is...

hahahaha!! i totally forgot about his most recent venture.

 

A group of us went and saw him in concert with his "angles" in Santa Cruz (Santa Carla), on the anniversary of Lost Boys. My buddy did the meet-and-greet him and said he is a sweet heart of a guy, but is stone serious about his music career. Through the first couple of songs, I was for sure we were being trolled. But as the set went on, you could tell he was giving it his all. He had the venue packed for the first 3 songs or so, but by the 5th it started to thin. I kinda felt bad for him.

Yes, please! Let's just get some true classic-ish seats and shells on those new chassis. See Montezooma's, Shock Wave and Mind Bender. Those classic flat seats and vertical headrests are perfect and practical. What they have on "New" Revo is a mess.

 

Big Corey Feldman fan here. He's a couple years older than me, and we're both in recovery. But he's much luckier as he got to fight with Jason!

This x1000! I was so happy when they announced the new lap bar trains for Revolution but it was short lived when added the terrible VR to it. Looking forward to riding it a lot more this year the way it was indeed to be ridden!

I did hear a Revolution op tell a guest that VR will be used in the summer months (which doesn't make sense since, thankfully, it seems to break in the heat). Having said that, if parks are still enamored with this "tech" and insist upon using it, perhaps they could repurpose it into a different kind of experience? Maybe there could be a space set aside in the park where all the headsets are gathered in a pile and guests have the opportunity to pelt them with rocks and old vegetables? That would make more sense than sticking them on rides.
