Either a bunch of guests who never followed or tweeted at one another conspired in line to tweet a false thing about Cedar Point all around 11:15-11:30AM or a wheel fell off Steel Vengeance.

Still a better track record than Lightning Rod.
1. Fury 325 | 2. Millennium Force | 3. New Texas Giant | 4. Outlaw Run | 5. Maverick | 6. Twisted Cyclone | 7. Iron Rattler | 8. The Voyage | 9. Goliath (SFGAm) | 10. Time Traveler

Why do I still have a donkey title???

That's it, no more wheels in line, to the fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo they go.

There's a picture online of the alleged wheel - It's 100% one of the rubber drive tires from the brake run. In no way is a road wheel or from the train at all

I'm not going to post it because it was clearly taken from the queue where you shouldn't have your phone.

Well that's good to know. I was definitely skeptical about the "omg wheel fell off" talk but if it's related to the brake run in any way it makes infinitely more sense.

:lol: I could see why that would be absolutely terrifying to anyone who's not a coaster nerd but it sounds like it's basically a non issue.

I guess we can all just be glad that Lightning Rod doesn't have Steel Vengeance's brake run.

Lightning Rod’s trains never make it to the brake run. They just push them back from the lift slowly and put up the “Closed for the Day” sign. :lol:

I know quite a lot about Donkeys!

Hi I just want to thank everyone who gave me information on the bug situation. It helped me a lot with some decisions. We will be there Wednesday thru Saturday with two new friends, so I am hoping everything will be running okay.
