At least it's now been announced by the park. Shame on that other group who spilled the beans when I'm sure they were told not to. But it doesn't surprise me given the source. ;) But really, even with the trims, I thought the ride was awesome.

Oh, and I should just say it to all the people who kept bitching and complaining over this season...


I TOLD YOU SO!!!


Seriously...how many times did I say "They aren't done...you'll still see changes...I'm sure you'll see another re-configuration of the trims before it's all done...just give it time...

I really wonder what widening the track will entail, and I wonder how well it will curb the positive g-forces experienced during the turn. Guess we'll find out in a few months!

Really, people were expecting anything different than widening the turn?

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

^ People will expect any that sounds plausible...

The trims will probably return to the tall, third hill like originally...

Pleading ignorance, do these modifications come out of Intamin's wallet, or the park's?

I want to say the park's because that's how most construction projects work: the contractor screws up, you pay! Maybe they've worked something out, however.

Maybe they'll get a discount on the Intamin prefab that will replace Hurler (wishes...)

Thats not how most construction projects work around here. If you contract someone to do something and they screw it up, its up to them to fix it. Thats the cause of a law suit....but in this case I have no idea. This doesn't seem like intamin screwed up at all. Its just an intense ride that the general public wasn't quite ready for.

Overbank turn? Probably too radical of a reprofile. While I think one would have been cool I'm kind of glad the low-to-the-ground turn will remain in some form.
