This slight delay and Lightning Rods delay are in no way comparable at all though. This is only stated as a 3-5 day delay, the issues with Lightning Rod are massively different.

Is this a problem with these cylinders, introduced earlier this year?



Anyway, safety first!

I love it how lodes of people are all saying these delays have ruined the whole reputation of RMC. And now they will go out of business and all their coasters will close! :lmao:
Note to self: don't be stupid...

Current top coaster = Expedition GeForce.

The Intamin Cab... I mean the Rocky Mountain Rest... I mean the B&M Vest... I mean...

Every new system is going to have its teething problems. I wouldn't read too much into it unless it's six months down the road and the coaster is down every day for whatever reason.

Well they were definitely having problems with Joker's restraint system when we were there last Friday. One of the times, someone's restraint wouldn't lock even though the system was telling the ride op the train was clear for dispatch.

I really feel for RMC right now, I hope this doesn't affect any of the future projects they have lined up. Will parks start losing confidence in them? I hope not!

The only thing that really bothers me is... I couldn't help but notice Rob and Elissa is in Europe now, and I know I'm not the only one who looks forward to the best on/off-ride footage in the world. Especially on this coaster...

I also love hearing Rob narrate the on-ride experience while screaming like a little girl...

Does this mean that our hopes and dreams of seeing/ hearing this soon is shattered?

Out of curiosity, when will you be there? Since I'm also planning on going there (which European coaster fan doesn't?) very soon.
