When I was there this evening, they were running all three trains. No people, but man that thing tears through the course.

Would love to see this open by late June. May make a special trip up from LA to ride it. I was impressed with the way it looked when I was up there about a month ago.

I was hoping to visit in mid-June with the premise it'd be open by then, but it's getting really hard to say. I really don't want to have to rearrange all my summer travel plans just because of this, but that's starting to look like the case. So wish they'd get their act together so people can plan trips. :/

I'm watching too. Looks like it's just employees. Not quite open to the public yet.

Welp, good thing I already got everything done for the day. :p

That's a neat view of the ride experience, and it was good to get an idea of what operations might be like (looks pretty dialed in at the moment). I'm keeping my ear to the street for news of its opening!

I was at the park today and here is a trip report. Whitewater Falls was closed throughout the time I was there (surprising considering how hot it was), while Patriot was down on two separate occasions before I saw it open early afternoon. Also did the go-karts, which I've rarely done. I was told H.M.B. Endeavor was torn down to make way for the water park expansion. There were people riding RailBlazer in the afternoon. It might have been a media event, as I saw what looked to be non-employees on the ride. I was surprised it wasn't more crowded considering the Red, White & Brews event was taking place.

It's definitely employee only status at the moment, but employees may have been able to bring a +1. Either way, with employees riding now, it will be open very very soon.

I got a free unlimited rides wristband voucher for SCBB tonight at the SF Giants game which is awesome, as I was planning to visit SCBB at the same time when I go down to CGA to ride Railblazer. That will save me $40!

According to people that work there, it's actually open to everyone... I hope it stays that way.

I heard the opposite, from someone who rode it today.
