Just go to the park thinking it's closed. This way you won't be disappointed if it is. On the other hand, think of the feeling you'll get when you see it crest over the top if is open!

I don't understand how they would be waiting for a part then they had all winter to order it?  I hope this is not an indication of the season to come.

Well they probably didn't know it was broken until they tried to test it.

They don't test the rides for a few months and rides parts wear in that time.

How do you know it wasn't Intamin? At least they have four trains ready to go this year!

Just out of curiosity since I work at GA and keeping tabs of things from school how did that happen?  Did the switch track mess up again, or did the staff have to begin breaks?

No clue but I know Chuck will be there today so hopefully we'll have a nice update :)  Personally, I'd be overly impressed if the ride was even running in this weather.  Its just too cold to get it up to speed.

Neither Kingda Ka or El Toro were running thursday.
Kindgda Ka because of the wind.
El Toro because of the cold. (Any ideas why this would be?)
Maybe the water in the water dummies are frozen in the trains!!  ;D

It doesn't look like it will be getting warmer anytime soon!
It was warmer on New Years Day of 2007!

Yes opening day while I was inline for Ka  while testing Toro I could see the train barely get over that last hump.

its funny most other Intamin mega coasters come in the brake run flying.
They should lower that last hill a bit. that is the only part of the ride that disappoints.

Yes wade your message came through  ;)

It will be interesting to see the reports back from those who attended the park today to see if Ka and Toro are operating.
