Well I'm glad Ka is open. I can be wrong sometimes!

Do we think the new rumored date of June 27th is a pipe dream as well or do we really have some sort of chance to get this open ?

Unclear. At this point I think both of Intamin's high profile drop towers this year (Zumanjaro, Falcon's Fury) are in a staring contest for which opens first.

I wouldn't say pipe dream. Its been testing for over a week now. I imagine it should be certified by the state and ready to go fairly soon.

They were all ready for a TV shoot on Wed....but it is now delayed with no reschedule date.
Something they were expecting must not have happened.

I'm curious if you've noticed any human riders?  My gut tells me, and this is through zero insider knowledge, that they've run into problems with the state. Somewhere on here, maybe previous page of this thread lol, I mentioned concern over this. Even just last week we didn't know the rider height requirement and it still isn't posted anywhere. Between being a one of a kind ride, the fact that it's attached to another ride which has already had issues and the fact that we are in NJ, I've always wondered how this portion of the opening would go. They want to keep us safe and I'm sure will figure everything out :). It just takes more time.

Next Wednesday, July 2nd is the media day and Thursday, the 3rd is a Season Pass Holder preview day.  Zumanjaro officially opens to the public on July 4th which is the parks 40th anniversary :).

Ride was cycling tons earlier this week and maintenance is doing visible work on it whenever it was not running. In fact they were testing Kingda Ka while doing work on Zumanjaro yesterday!

I may give Thursday a try. 
They decided to make the commercial shoot an employee only event on Sunday (I think they did the same thing with the GL).
And somehow I think it will be a long media day since its a record breaker.

Wonder if Zu is afraid of the rain as Sunday is looking a bit wet.

What do you need to get into the ERT for it?

Gold Season Pass or most likely Season Pass since they forgot to print Gold on many.
Any park will most likely do since all park passes look the same this year.

Being 100% serious when I say that I hate the Season Passes this year. Tons of people try and show them to you like they're V.I.G. or that you need to scan them in order to ride, it's annoying to deal with on a daily basis.

Maybe season passes just got too cheap this year?
I honestly think the Cedar Fair Platinum Pass is a fair deal.
Bringing in the BioMetric scanners this year could not have been an easy task. They could have foreseen some of the issues with just a little thinking ahead.  (The 10 minute early entry is a joke.)

"10 minute early entry" when Frontier Adventures still doesn't open until 11:00 am...

The Platinum Pass is one of the better deals for a chain. When I got mine this year I got my moneys worth with using it for two days at KI and 1 1/2 days at CP. It did suck the first day because it rained all day and most of the rides were closed, but the park stayed open and they still did the hour ERT on Millennium the hour after the park closed.

Trying to keep with the topic, I am happy to see they have a set opening date. I just hope it opens with little issues.

A review from some "VIP" person who rode it 25 times on Sunday says it is a good one!
Now lets hope the weather cooperates for their activities this week.

Looks like the wait continues....

Six Flags' Zumanjaro ride delayed again, still needing state permit

I'm hoping for the park's sake that the state cooperates and inspects it soon so that they can open it up to the public this week, or early next week at the latest. I know that the park is ready to go, and from the looks of it, so is the public.

I don't know if they're ready to walk that queue though...

IMO, this is nothing more than politics...  Obviously Six Flags doesn't want to open a ride that isn't safe.
