  1. That’s not because of the ride, it’s because of when COVID struck.
    I know, I should of quoted a post above they were talking about the purple train being removed and hasn't ran since.

  2. I would imagine it would cost substantially less to bring an engineer or two out to KI to consult vs. the roundtrip freight cost on a roller coaster train.  PTC is in reasonable enough driving distance that KI and CP can send trains there on trucks for rehab, but Switzerland is a bit far.
    KI doesn't and their PTCs out for rehab, KI does it themselves, CP on the other hand does, one of the reasons for the delayed opening of Blue Streak.

  3. They seem to be sacrificing their own rules and health practices for capacity sake. When everyone scrambles off at once there is almost no way to stay six feet away from another guest. This is made very clear when all the other rides in the park abide by the rules but the newest latest and greatest chooses to ignore them. Uncomfortable. 
    I complained about this last Sunday, I do not agree with letting everyone off Orion bat the same time. I had to stop at the exit cause of the bottle neck, sorry that's not social distancing.

  4. FYI Boo Blasters had the FL chained off when we went Saturday but was allowing regular line, and Race For Your Life Charlie Brown & Antique Autos isn't showing as accepting FL on the new map? Bit confusing 
    You can definitely use it on Race for your Life, and the cars I've done it this year. And not sure why Boo was chained off, my guess is they forgot to open it.

  5. Awesome find! 
    Now, wonder how far they'll let cars line up out on the road?  LOL!   All the way back to I-71?   I remember the mad house of opening day for Banshee...  But should only be 1700 people tomorrow!! 
    Funny that it says the first reservation time is 10:30 when my reservation specifically says 11am...  
    I have 10:30 reservation for tomorrow. 10:30 was probably gone when you reserved.

  6. As a paying season passholder, yes, I do not like the April schedule at all. There are several Sundays they should be open. 5 days is ridiculous for the entire month. I will not be visiting because I know the hell those days will be. If they had more Sundays it would get spread out.  Instead, we'll get lucky if 3 of those 5 days in April are ok weather-wise, which makes going to the park not at all worth it. Might as well park on I-71.
    May weekdays is iffy because they have schools visiting for math/science days.
    April 12th is Easter when the park has been open in the past on Easter the park was a ghost town. The park probably figures it's better to stay closed. April 19th is probably the park buy out that usually happens in April each year.

  7. The KI page that shows Fastlane on sale soon shows Diamondback demoted, and no Vortex.
    Diamondback had never been on Plus, now Banshee was for a few years.

  8. Then I wonder where that piece of track they took off came from. 
    They were a piece of track that lead into the storage shed that was removable so it was easier for them to remove the trains. You can tell this piece of track wasn't traveled on much as they are no marks left from the wheels.

  9. It vibrates a lot, but I wouldn't call it rough. And there's not much you can do about the MCBR.  The way it works, it has to stay there until the train in the unload station is clear, so if you have a slow unload like it tends to do, its likely to stop there, which is awkward in the first 2 cars.  
    Other than that, I enjoy it a bunch still. 
    It doesn't have to stop in the midcourse if they are still a train unloading. They are a set of brakes outside of the unload station that will stop a train if it's unloading. Flight of Fear was designed to run 4 trains that's the only reason it even has a midcourse in the first place.
