They probably won't honestly. The only reason they're doing it is because Halloween is on a Friday so it doesn't really make sense not to be open the first weekend in November (the 1st and 2nd). I would think that if Halloween fell on a Monday (just as an example) they wouldn't be open.



You are probably right

Here is a link for a nice Steelhawk update. As you can see unfortunately it is being painted. I was hoping it would keep the color scheme that it had at Knott's, so it would still look unique, but still a nice addition for WOF. http://www.midwestinfoguide.com/worlds/2014/02.15/

I go to furry parties, I'm probably a brony too...

^Maybe giving it a different color scheme (along with a different name) will make people forget about the accident at Knotts.
I'm done.

^^ That's a shame, I really like the colors on the Knott's one. Oh well, I can totally understand that they want it the same as the others.

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

I honestly must be the only one who didn't like the colors at knotts. It didn't seem right for a ride themed around flying in the air. I am very glad will be painted like the other windseekers =) .

The colors were perfect for Knott's as it fit well in the Fiesta Village area. Plus, it looked really good in person.

Good point but it just wouldn't fit in an AMERICAN section of the park. It actually fit in really really well in knotts

^ Yeah, I didn't really think of the theming when I wanted it to maintain its original color scheme. I wonder when vertical Construction is supposed to start?

EDIT: Vertical Construction started today! http://www.midwestinfoguide.com/worlds/2014/02.24/

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Funny you should ask about when vertical construction is supposed to start. It already has.
