Not to derail this thread any further, but a huge part of the problem is there not anything actually tough about them. They exist, and some businesses (like Knotts when they were open for all their fo

Toughest mask mandates in the country for months and months. When will masks start working? 

Here's some random night shots from Taste of Merry Farm.   Camp Snoopy looked the best at night, imo.  I guess I like the lights up the trees thing the best.      The Bear-Y Tales

Well....on the bright side, this does give the park time to finish painting the track...

 

Yeah that's true, the ride really needs a fresh coat of paint! It's a shame that Xcelerator has all these cable incidents, what bad luck!

They almost might as well replace the cable with LSMs if this happens to become a habit...

 

LSM wouldn't provide the launching power in that short of a launch area without probably blacking out all of Buena Park.

Most parks keep a stock of parts that are commonly replaced. IE: proximity switches, wheels, restraint mechanisms, motors for drive wheels etc.

Well I'm sure today there are a few ACEers that will be disappointed to know that their ERT is canceled for tonight.

 

I might as well go check out the park today, considering I'm sure the early morning rain scared some people away.

Well in the long run the delay will be beneficial to everyone. The park wouldn't want to rush through this thing only to have it pleagued with the same issues it's cousins are. Knott's has a golden opportunity to open this thing with no glitches or mishaps. If it means opening it in August, I'm all for that. The bulk of Knott's attendance is going to be coming in October and December anyway. If this thing can be reliable for Haunt and Toys For Tots, then more power to taking the time to get it right. Now if this were a Giga coaster with such a long delay......I might not be so optimistic

Yup, it's up, though, it looked like today the ride had a faulty sensor or something like that, because when I was at the park, Xcelerator was down with a mechanic on the 180 turn catwalk holding a sensor. It took about 30 minutes or so.

 

AND... Windseeker has gone airborne today! Sadly, no pictures..

Doesn't seem like it's going to be much longer....so yay to that.

 

On an unrelated topic, I've noticed the hiring for Haunt monsters has started (At least for returning employees), has any info been released for the mazes/scarezones? I've been so busy working I haven't had the time to keep up on this stuff

There's a chance I may make a trip to Knotts over labor day. Doing a bit of searching I was unable to find what the crowd potential is. Can anybody help me out? I know Labor Day is the last summer hoorah and crowds would be expected to be higher than normal. Just curious.
