    Well, I did manage to ride GaleForce last week. Wild Waves is complete with a train on the track and the station was staffed....but I never saw it testing. (although a friend of mine had been there a few days previous and saw cycling empty/testing) so I would think it should be opening soon.

    As far as GaleForce goes. It's pretty fun, I rode it twice. I think the best way to describe it is 'so bad it's actually good.' All the transitions are so oddly shaped and the forces are... Uh, Unique? But since it has a rather comfortable vest, there's no head banging or anything and while there is rattling or vibration, it's not rough

    It's such a goofy looking ride. I kinda love it.

    Yeah, I was surprised how fun it was. I would have ridden it more if it wasn't $10 per ride!

    Actually its both $10 and $14....

    If you buy a ticket from the window... FOR GaleForce, its $10 with the GaleForce ticket. If you buy a book of ride tickets (to split around all the rides in the park) it takes $14 worth of tickets for GaleForce. <3

    Two things:

    Split lift hills are the ultimate worst.

    What the :emoji_zipper_mouth: is that banking after the big MCBR?

    Holy block brakes Batman!

    Looks weird, plenty of airtime but reminds me of Pinfari track.

    That profiling is worse than a TOGO and a Pinfari.

    Apparently this is only for the winter (maintenance?). If this ends up needing yet another retracking, I'll be laughing my arse off

    TL;DR the ride is being retracked at no cost to the park as S&S is paying for it.

    Oh, hahaha.
    How is S&S making any profit from their work? About 50% of their projects seem to be a complete bust.

    ^They must have a decent amount of money if they can afford to build a decent-sized factory.

    They should just scrap Galeforce and build a Eurofighter...
