Went in the park today for 25 minutes
got my pass done and coupon book . the season pass is a great deal with all the free and low cost coupons they give you. it pays for itself.

took a lot of pics will post them tomorrow
I did see the brakes on the 1st drop four of them looks like squeeze brakes or whatever they are called.
and the rest of the ride looks unchanged  :D
this as we talked about before ( MATT )  is a good thing and I still think the coaster will do its job.  ;D

I was really impressed with the back Hill picnic area Looks very nice its all blacktopped and Nice Landscape beds and shrubs and lots of new SOD/grass. gone is the dusty stone/dirt/gravel
My camera is in the truck so i will post pics in the late am.

the park looks alot smaller now with the new water structure taking up parts of the park.
I need to get in the water park

You tell him, Tom! I drove all the way from Iowa to ride Hell Cat (and live in PA)!

I did get that phone call back from the GM David Dorman.  :o
I asked him about the status of the coaster and he said its ready just waiting on the state to see if they need anything else if not it will open maybe Thursday or Friday.
I also mentioned I was with ACE and a long time local and many of us are waiting to ride the coaster.

I asked him what was done to the ride and he said

Brakes (trims) to slow it a bit and make it a more comfortable ride.only on the drop as noted in the photos.
some track work

He said he rode the coaster before the work was done and after and he said its much smoother even in the back seat.
He said it may be a little slower about 1 or 2 seconds but yes it was not good for the track the way it was.
But he said ITS STILL FAST just smoother  :D.

I also asked about the Jack Rabbit location and he said no plans yet or at least nothing he could tell me. I told him to put in another coaster  ;)

and as we all know he did work at many other Six Flags locations

Sadly, 4-5 seconds longer is a HUGE deal. ::)

That's what I meant. It IS a very significant slow-down.  :'(

They were kinda inspecting it. Its hard to explain, I was operating when they rode and they all had positive reactions. However nothing is officialy inspected yet. But if I had to put money on it I would say that Hell Cat opens tomorrow afternoon at some point.
