i just hope it has less down time than kingda ka has had.
I think when new coasters are built, in their first year they deliberately cut the ride out or close them for certain days. This could be to help the mechanics get used to fixing it. This is what i think because things like Nemesis Inferno, Air and Colossus either were closed or had broke down alot in their first year when i went. Air still breaks down alot but Nemesis Inferno and Colossus don't. I'm not sure if this is true, it could be the down-time is alot because its new so the mechanics may not be so quick at repairing it.[/quote]
no Ka had genuine problems, it was shut a few months after opeing because somthing on the cars where sheding the brake disks :P not good. its had some other problems as well. top thrill dragster the launch cable snapped fairly soon after lit came out, it frayed into the people in the front row, both were in care for a month in hospital and survived. so there is a lot of work in maintaining rocket coasters.
