I will be back on the 9th and at AT on the 10th my fingers are crossed that it is open by then, if you guys get to ride before then I hope you enjoy it.
This more or less brings the construction period to a close for me (I hope) and I thank you all for following but remember guys and gals, as upset that we all are about what has happened we are all coaster fans at heart, so don't blame each other. Enjoy the coaster, should it open, and I will see you all when I get back.

back on topic tho, I really hope they sort out these "teething issues" pretty soon.
I doubt there was actually any teething problems at all. I think simply it was not fully complete yet ( as you can see from the queue lines and painting etc) teething problems were a pretty poor excuse lol Anyway , i think it will be open Friday.
