    Does anybody know if Top Thrill Dragster is open right now?

    We were there Sunday and it was closed pretty much all day.  The ride finally opened around 6:30 and we got in line with about an hour wait.  During that hour wait it broke down several times with one time resulting in a roll back.  After trying to wait it out we left the line without riding.

  2. After my last visit I Cedar Point on Sunday Kings Island is the crown jewel of the chain. I have yet to go to Knotts Berry Farm though. KI just needs to fill in a gap in their coaster collection and add some new flat rides and it could be the best the park outside of Disney/Universal.

  3. Im sure there is a lot involved but I always think it will go up faster than it does. Like strap the track up lift it up bolt it on unstrap move on to the next part. I’m sure it’s a lot more involved though.

    It's not taking too long, they have a schedule, and those cranes are crazy expensive, thousands per day. There is no reason to have it sitting there not working. The cranes needed will show up when they need to. 

    I believe I heard the figure of $10,000 per day back when Diamondback was being built.

  5. I know someone said back that Cedar Fair doesn’t want to spend the capital on coasters like they used too. I was at the park Sunday thinking if Vortex was at the end of its life Flight Deck and Adventure Express aren’t far behind.  In all honesty Invertago should go too. There are a lot of coasters that could be considered for removal and I personally see a lot of changes for KI more quickly rather than more slowly. Not to mention the water park and kids area both could use an update. The park seems to have gotten old really fast.

    Not sure about move but Orion will close I am sure if they leave it where it is.

    Seems silly to close the star attraction for some fireworks. Hopefully they move the launch pad or maybe just to a light show on IE street.
