    The Boardwalk | Cedar Point | Wild Mouse and Ride Relocation | 2023

    A few things I noticed in the video... Tony mentioned that "Wild Mouse" will be their 18th coaster, which I really hope means that they are planning to reopen TTD. Although he could be throwing enthusiasts off the scent by making that statement I want to remain optimistic he's giving a clue...

    SFMM | Wonder Woman Flight of Courage | RMC Raptor | 2022

    Great Adventure is very serious about this at JD. I've seen them, numerous times, stop the train right before the lift hill if they notice something in a pocket during the final restraint check and make the person get off the ride so they can store the item.

    SFMM | Wonder Woman Flight of Courage | RMC Raptor | 2022

    The mid course on JD was on when it first opened but every time I've ridden it this season (maybe 15+ times so far) it hasn't engaged once. That could be due to the fact when I've been there they have only been running 3 trains but who really knows. Maybe someone can educate me but if this ride...

    Busch Gardens Williamsburg | Pantheon | Intamin LSM Coaster | 2022

    I was able to get one ride on Pantheon while at BGW on Monday. Overall, I feel it's a good ride. It seemed to have a lot of maintenance issues. It was open with the park but went down after about 90 minutes and didn't reopen for nearly 3 hours. I waited around 30ish minutes to see if it would...

    Darien Lake issues (Possible Ride of Steel removal after 2022 season)

    Similar to Dorney Park. I was there on a beautiful, and hot, day towards the end of August and the dry park was D E A D. I was thrilled so that energy can stay as far as I'm concerned.

    Busch Gardens Tampa | Iron Gwazi | RMC Gwazi | 2022

    No news related to Iron Gwazi but I was at BGT on Tuesday and this coaster looks incredible in person. I'm really looking forward to riding it. Fun little story... while riding Falcon's Fury a woman sitting next to me was talking to someone telling them how Iron Gwazi was basically the same...

    SFGAdv | Jersey Devil Coaster | RMC Raptor | 2021

    Was at GA Monday for the first time since JD opened to the general public. It was only running three trains and, to me, that really slowed down ops. What should have been a 5 minute or so line was actually 15 minutes. Granted, the load station was stopping more often than it should have due to...

    We can only hope! They are beasts at running all three trains on Nitro. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    SFGAdv | Jersey Devil Coaster | RMC Raptor | 2021

    Got to Great Adventure around 10:30 this morning for the member preview. Running 4 trains and operations were very smooth. There were only a few times the ride was paused. I can't even say it went down because it was up and running again within a few minutes. I lost count of how many rides I got...

    The crew at Nitro is insane. They are so fast it's incredible to watch.

    HAHA! Just like El Toro and Joker. I guess it's better than delaying ride ops.
