I'm surprised that it didn't actually close today as that was the target date. We'll see what happens now, hopefully we'll get answers soon!

Revolution will almost certainly reopen before Green Lantern. There is supposedly some litigation going on with Green Lantern right now that hasn't finished. I'm assuming the park will reopen the ride at some point considering they have been very slowly working on it, but I have yet to hear any type of timetable for the ride.

...But let's be honest, does anyone really miss Green Lantern?

This button makes my penis erect.

I really with this park (and every park) would follow Busch Tampa and Disney's format and post their ride refurb schedules for people planning visits. It seems like a simple enough thing to do and I really appreciate it when parks do it.

As long as Twisted Colossus, X2, and Tastu are open and the crowds are small I'm happy when I visit the park.

That would require the park itself to have a refurb schedule... so that’s probably not happening anytime soon. All we’ve been told about YOLOcoaster’s second train is “soon”, and that was 3 weeks ago.

Seems like nothing has changed in 15 years since I worked there. Still have a terribly undermanned cycle shop for train refurbishments.

They should replace it with a premier ride sky rocket 2 similar to Electric eel.

I just never understood why they insist on performing lengthy rehabs smack dab in the middle of peak season. I get that they're a year-round park with a lot of rides, but having some of your marquee rides closed or operating at a limited capacity in the middle of July? Really?

My small thing speaks for itself

What department did you work in? I was working in the Entertainment department 15 years ago.
