That stinks
they had all year to get this done for opening and memorial day weekend with perfect weather.

I would think the new owners would want to make a great impression with the new park.

They will have the waterpark open but not the biggest ride in the park the Rollercoaster.
Alot of season pass holders are going to be pissed.like me
They dropped the ball on this one

rode by yesterday and yes they have a little tiny "toll booth" up for parking. it's a few hundred feet into the lot.

How can you not have your major ride not open?
I think I'll wait for reports that it is definitely open before venturing down to Clementon.
Charge for parking?  Where did they get that idea from...

Did it look like it was running good / fast  where are the trims ?

I was going to run down to the park today but decided to call first.
I called  and asked about the coaster if it would be open, she said hold on and asked a
man in the background and he said not till next weekend.

SO it looks like more testing to be done.

but I will call again on Monday to see if it does open so the folks that are now riding The Voyage can ride it Monday  ;)

on the first test.. it crawled. But after they greased up the track it looked like it was running just fine to me.  It made the second hill no problem and it seemed to crash into the brakes just like it used to.

correct. They are only one the first drop.  It honestly didnt seem to affect it all that badly of course, we havent rode it yet so.  When I get to ride it, I'll let you know what its like.

...and hopefully that will be sometime this week before we reopen to the public.

Actualy it looked normal because the trims were not in use Friday during the test runs. We had consign come out today and the trims brakes now make the ride 5-6 seconds longer and they brake the train according to the last trains time. So if you have an empty train followed by a full train the full train will barely be trimmed but the train after that will be heavily trimmed. Since the trims are on the first hill its not possible to figure out how much to trim each train. Thats why they just use the train befores speed to determine it.

Hell Cat accelerometor test is completed. State needs to review that info then they will come out to inspect the ride. Earliest it can open is Thursday afternoon. The latest we expect to have it open is Saturday. However there is no guarantee that it will be open by then.

So has the park been busy this weekend?    Why wasn't opening "Hellcat" a top priority this weekend?  They had a full off season to get it ready. Why wait days before the relaunch of the park to add trims? Did the coaster fail inspection three weeks ago?  Was there an inspection at all till yesterday ?  I know the park needed a lot of work, but not having your main ride open seems pretty silly to me.

THe lot looked like it was clearing out.

I believe there were some unexpected delays during the instalation of the trim brakes. Up until 1 week ago Hell Cat was on schedule to open this weekend. The state has not inspected the ride yet.

Called the Park and the coaster is STILL being tested by the STATE
I was told this was the last ride to be tested (I guess because of the new trims).
she told me NEXT WEEK.

I asked to talk to someone in charge and was sent to the GM or whoever voice mail.

I told them I bought a season pass and was not happy that I can't even ride the main ride and that friends from out of state want to know when to book their trip.
I left my #    >:(

so looks like another week.  :'(

There was very little testing that had to be done. At this point a minor unexpected problem is holding us up. The problem is finding parts to fix the problem witch always seem to be on back order. If we had the parts we could have it ready for inspection within an hour.
