P. 2017: Top Thrill Dragster RETIRED!?!?!?

Recommended Posts

Similar to webgoof I'm also hitting the point in May! just realised I'm there the Sunday of memorial day weekend and the Monday after I guess the Sunday is going to be very busy and hope things will calm down a bit on the monday. What are your thoughts how bad will it be?

 

Thanks in advance guys.

I'm seriously going crazy when I think this is Fred Grubb from RMC.

If this is legitimate, then I'm predicting either an RMC woodie or Iron Streak in 2016 or 2017.

Well of course it's legitimate, I don't think they would get Jason McClure and a few other guys in suits to pose for a tweet during a busy offseason if nothing was actually happening. But what you didn't understand is that he said one gentleman in the tweet resembles Fred Grubb, but it is not.

What I'm saying is I think it's Fred Grubb, but it's not. Does anyone know who it is?

Tony posted a new blog post yesterday all about the progress so far on Rougarou.

 

https://www.cedarpoint.com/blog-article/online-fun/Friday-Funday

 

Short summary:

  • Rougarou still has a ways to go before testing can begin.
  • They're completely re-wiring the ride via their own internal electrician team; usually is standard for upgrading a PLC system like this, less issues.
  • 2 of the 3 trains are there, #3 has yet to arrive.

 

My guess, we won't be seeing testing done until early April, since they're still working on the wiring at this point. Not surprised though, since it's harder to re-wire something that's already been standing for nearly 20 years versus wiring something for new construction. Can run into a few surprises such as broken conduits.
