I like the little red swinging doors they added at the exit stairway. All the coasters at Hershey have those wider blue exit doors and I always feel awkward letting them go because they swing with such force and I don't want to hit anybody, especially an unsuspecting child, with it. I feel like the red ones serve the same purpose while being a lot more miniscule.

I stopped by the construction site today in hopes they would be testing the ride. There were a few construction guys very close to the fence, so I asked them if they knew when testing would begin. They told me there's a few bugs to work out, but testing could begin as early as "tomorrow or the next day" meaning Thursday or Friday.

That's great news! I'll eagerly await the next few days. I expect the train to go slower in the first tests than later on, but I can't wait to see the train go around the track!
