Shorter trains make longer lines ... and sell more flash passes.

Has anyone heard anything about what's going on with the rewards program yet? I've been trying to sign up for a week and a half now and it still seems to be down.

Well, if they can disbatch a train every 45 seconds to keep the flow going, even a long line should move fairly quickly

great TR from WCB a couple of pages back.

what did Andy think of MM? I've never been either, and it's something I plan to do in the future.

If WCB happens again next year, I'm gonna attend for sure!

I've tried several times today since I was at the park with no success. It keeps coming up with an error. I want to start getting my points. :lmao:

That's odd. I successfully signed up at the beginning of September for the rewards program. And after seeing your post, I decided to check my account. It looks like they reset everything and I'm no longer registered. I also get the error message when trying to re-sign up.

Kind of sucks since I'm pretty sure fright fest maze passes were supposed to be one of the rewards.. I'm gonna head to the park for a few hours today. I'll see if anyone at membership headquarters or guest relations knows what's going on

I totally get why that seems silly, but honestly, I feel like if any coaster in the park is going to dispatch in that time, West Coast Racers will be it. It's much easier and faster to check 12 people's restraints than say 24, 28, or 32. And I know the comfort collars will slow that down a little, but not having seatbelts and being able to immediately pull down the restraint does make a difference. This on top of the new loose article method they plan on implementing for this ride, I can totally see 45 second dispatches.

Superman at SFDK pumped out trains every 30-45 seconds and the line moved very well.
Steel: 160 / Wood: 32 / Total: 192
