Wait, I thought that there was some Intamin conspiracy going on that would shut all of their rides down at CF parks if they didn't pony up the cash for new ride swag? :lol:

:roll: And so it begins...

Look, that's not what I said, nor what was said to me. In fact, as I understand it, CP wants to open the coaster, and it's just a matter of defying Intamin's wishes. Frankly, I don't know if Intamin has ultimate authority here, but I doubt they do. So hopefully CP tests the ride, it runs fine, and they do what they want to do, giving Intamin the finger.

As for the veracity of what I heard, I believe in the sincerity of the person who told me the information MORE than I believe anybody posting on TPR (besides RAWKIN, Turtle Wax, and Robb, who I've all met) actually exists, and isn't just an android posting from the moon! :lol: It's possible he got bogus information, or misunderstood, but I rather doubt it... In the future, rest assured I'll keep these things to myself, as clearly, it's too difficult for people to disseminate possible reliable intel, from BS intel, and in our hobby, there's so much BS intel, that's understandable. My mistake probably, bringing it up at all... :?r

So I’m imaginary? That explains a lot of things, actually.

Since I didn’t go to Kennywood, I can say that Dragster IS up and running right now.

Dragster was open most of the evening. Was down for a bit between 830 and 930 and went down again after 1130. The rest of the night operated fairly regularly.

This is where I exit the discussion until something relevant appears.

So this is almost remarkable given what happened last weekend but...

- Every single ride is open including Sky Ride and Windseeker. Last week Power Tower, Sky Ride, Dragster, Windseeker, Antique Cars and obviously Dragster were closed.
- Gemini is racing which hasn't happened at all during Halloweekends after the first weekend.
- Magnum and CP Railroad are running their full fleet of trains which hasn't been happening
- Power Tower is running all 4 towers after being entirely closed for staffing almost all of last weekend with not a single tower open
- Additional food trucks seem to have brought in
- Multiple people have seen Tony Clark and other higher ups operating rides today

Considering what a disaster last weekend was and the fact that they just reopened a coaster that requires a ton of staffing to operate, this is a minor miracle. Great job all around!
