Once it gets approved by the state and the park thinks it is safe. Then it will open, and only then.

Steel- 84

I'm disappointed the Steelhawk hasn't opened yet. I was going to go this weekend.

I just talked to one of the people at worlds of fun, and they said steel hawk was officially delayed because lf weather and that every day weather troubles them it's sets them back three more days. Hmmm that's not very good considering it's supposed to storm basically every others day for the next week or so

I will be in Kansas City next work for work and plan on hitting WoF either Monday or Thursday. Any ideas as to the crowds either day? Are schools out in the KC area or will there be bus loads of school kids next week? I may go after my meetings (5:00pm) or spend the entire day there, so any advice regarding ways to maximize my coaster ride time and avoid the crowds would be appreciated. (Note I normally do not spring for a FAST Lane pass).

Thanks in advance!

School is out here in KC as far as crowds, it will depend on the weather.

I just went to worlds of fun yesterday and here is what I noticed.
- for this whole year timberwolf has not been using the trims at all. The ride is actually very good now, still a bit rough though.
- Mamba's mid course brakes were on very hard
-steelhawk was doing some very extensive tests. They were raising it up and down the tower all day. I think we could be close to an opening
-prowler was great, though the first drop is getting quite rough
-Patriot was running extremely well. Smooth as butter. It also felt like it was running extremely fast., it was actually quite forceful.
-Boomerang Sucks
-the new slides at oceans(well new last year) were really painful last year, well the body slides were. But they were pretty good now. Tube ones were still awesome
- The water was FREEZING in oceans.

I was there yesterday also for the first time this season and I've noticed most of those things. Other things I've noticed was that Prowler was running really well. My mind was blown. It has days where it just isn't as impressive as usual. That was not one of those days.

Europa is in desperate need of a facelift, I feel that it is definitely one of the most bland parts of the park.

Timberwolf didn't seem as rough as usual, not smooth but not as bad as usual.

Those new TVS are actually kinda entertaining.

Boomerang made me want to find a corner and cry
