Wanted to give an update on SV operation. As I stated before, prior to opening they were testing with all three trains. Before Early Entry they took one off. They were consistently dispatching when the other train hit the third inversion. This seemed to be the dispatch interval, as even if the train was secure and checked, they would wait for the train to hit the third inversion to dispatch. The lift hill would start slow and speed up when the other train cleared the FBR, which confirms that the Mid Course is not a block. The Mid Course trim hit at different levels all day.

I don't see why the coaster can't run three trains right now. They could run it like Magnum, consistently dispatching at the dispatch interval, stacking 1 train for a short period of time. There was so much downtime between dispatches, which would be solved with the third train. The crew is quick, but not quick enough to require the Mid Course to be a block, from what I observed. My guess for why they aren't running three trains currently is that they haven't gotten certification to run all three trains yet, since it's been open daily for the last 2-3 months. The regular line moves quick as it is, the third train will be a game changer. Once there's no downtime between dispatches, the grouper will be constantly assigning rows, and fhe line will fly. Can't wait for that :)

I feel like it's not too far away. It's never going to be a super high capacity ride but it would be perfectly respectable with that third train. It would be great if they could break out that third train by Halloweekends.

Three trains will come. Just be patient. As in any situation, we're on the outside looking in.

In the long run this is a good thing for us and for the park since the park had mentioned potential ride removals for cost cutting on their Q2 calls AND if they built two giant RMCs in the chain and they don’t draw any gate the chances of the chain adding more is essentially zero. People should be hoping for crowds at Cedar Fair parks.


:nina: :nina: :nina:

Yep, all of this. Crowds after investing a lot of money is a good thing for everybody. I know it sucks to have to deal with large crowds but there are ways to avoid a lot it.

Anyone at CP today see anything happen with Steel Vengeance? Rumor floating around the internet is that a "wheel" came off a train and it came to an abrupt stop?? I have zero evidence on the validity of this, just curious if anyone saw / heard anything who is there today!

I can't confirm it but there are a ton of sources. I don't know... it sounds like something Steel Vengeance would do. It'll probably be open in like 2 hours. :lol:
