Looks like in addition to Timber Wolf’s track work and new turn, the ride will also be receiving a pretty sweet lighting package as well. Looks great!

Not really sure what’s going on in there he marketing department, but what is Hollye’s problem with every coaster nerd out there. Has anyone gotten the bad vibe off her or ther she doesn’t think her poop stinks?

Looks very nice! I just hope there’s actually air time! At least it’s less rough than prowler!

I'm planning on heading down to WoF next week. When do local schools let out for the summer, and how crowded will the park be next week?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

KC public schools are out 5/29, and most other schools will be out before Memorial Day. There will be between 1 and 100,000 people in the park.

I got one ride in on Timberwolf today. I’m not sure why it seemed so much better
than last time I rode. I’m not talking about the overbanked turn either. I had at least 3 airtime out of
the seat moments, which is impressive, last time I rode I had zero. I barely fit in the seat weighing 230 at 5 “10.
I sat down and had to wedge myself in, but still had out of my seat airtime.
Hoping they can finish the rest of it next year. It really did feel reborn, but I also had my expectations very low.
So it was nice to be surprised. The pacing is almost perfect now, I sat second train from the back

Glad to hear the positive reviews of Timber Wolf. The coaster really does appear to have a nice layout, so I'm glad they fixed what they had instead of immediately going the RMC route. Granted I wouldn't have complained if they had done that though...
