We did not mention all the statistics during the announcement because statistics are not what make a roller coaster great; it's the ride experience it delivers that makes it great.

It's good to see me, isn't it? No need to respond! That was rhetorical. Under 30 days until Banshee makes its public debut! We can't wait for you to come out and experience this ride.

We have guests that are more excited about our live shows than our roller coasters, that visit the park specifically for the shows. For these guests, the Cirque Imagine announcement was as exciting as

To be honest, I hope no one reveals the lighting package of Banshee. I want it revealed in its full glory at the end of opening day.

I'll wait to post my media day/Scream For a Kid Again trip report until after opening day then. I can't speak for others though.

Or you can still post it before Opening Day and people can just choose not to look at it if they don't want to get an early peek at what it's like...

Just because something is posted, it doesn't mean you all have to look at it. :)

It looks like they have started on the display sign area by the queue line

I'm sure some rides have cycled a few times we just don't see it.

You'll see the park wake up for sure at the end of April/Beginning of May..we train for practically a week or more running the ride as an O/C shift to get ready for first riders.

Wish that sort of thing happened down here. I got two weeks of running rides and working with the crew, some rides at KI, just a day..

Testing will probably be hindered yet again today by windy conditions. :( However, i am really eager to see what the finished station looks like!

Wouldnt a windy day be a great day for testing? That and rain? Perfect example on why I want to wait a bit before I ride any new ride.

Depends on the ride, some train more before the park opens than others.

Rides supervisors work several weeks before, cycling the rides. Then other employees come on specific days closer to the opening of the park. People are trained on the ride they will be working. Rides like Banshee will require training during the whole training period.
