BoulderDash Posted April 6, 2020 Share Posted April 6, 2020 Ghost Hunt still has the same number of cars as far as I know, usually fluctuates between 4 and 6 throughout the year. They have 7 cars (car 1 got parted out). There are some issues with the cars though. If there is too much weight in the cars, they will occasionally veer off the track and keep going until they hit something then stop. The ride will not shutdown though if this happens and sometimes the operator will not notice, which can lead to trouble. This happened multiple times last year. They implemented a policy to only allow 2 adults per car to prevent this, but ride ops sometimes do not care and will load a car fully. There must be something they can do to fix this as this was not a problem until a year or two ago. The lines were very long last year for the ride because of this. I still wish they would run more logs on Saw Mill, I think 8 is the max they are comfortable with. I would prefer something like 10 or 12. They do need more operators when they run more logs though. I don't expect them to open until late June at this point. I am guessing around 2-3 weeks after whenever SFNE opens. They will have a ton of work to do to get the park ready once they get the all clear. I am also wondering if their new waterslide Venus Vortex has been shelved or not, doesn't seem likely for it to open. Most if not all of the foundation work is done, but it has not gone vertical yet. (And likely won't until things are back to normal). Their website used to say Memorial Day weekend, but now just says 2020. Since attendance is almost guarenteed to take a hit this year, they might choose to open it next season, although there is still a chance for late summer I guess.
