I don't recall, but it did reopen with the retracking, but I don't know all the facts. Just that they invested in a retracking but then didn't run it very long afterwards.

In the end it can all be summed up in "enthusiasts don't know all the facts" My apologies for continuing the off topic discussion.

Thanks to Chris and Joey for their input as I do believe Montezooma's Revenge will run as long as it is cost efficient for KBF. But with the trend in Schwarzkopf's being removed it is understandable why it becomes a constant rumor.
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!

That's what I suspected since there was a little bit of dark green on the front spike supports if you look at my photos a couple pages back.

I rather like Rougarou's color scheme, so if it's along those lines I'm a happy camper. Wonder if they're gonna repaint/restyle the train as well or pull a SFMM and leave it alone (looking at you, Scream).

Here are a few photos of the park today:
Train track almost ready
Monte painting
Sky Cabin is getting worked on and will hopefully re-open soon. Benches were leaning against the fence for repairs. Part of rear wall of cabin was removed so you can see through cabin. Cabin wa raised later in day but didn't take a photo.

^^ I completely forgot about the water park expansion until your photo update!

I'm really curious about this sky cabin situation. Windseeker was ultimately removed for a very similar situation, and it was much newer than the sky tower. I hope it remains, but we will know soon enough I guess.

Please note that the park is closed today due to weather which makes sense because according to the National Weather Service and their crack proofreading team, everyone in Southern California is about to be killed by 750 MPH winds.

I know more about donkeys than women!

I hate the new paint on Zoom. But also, please riddle me this...

Why are there FOUR yellow/orange/red coasters literally right next to each other? Plus Coast Rider and Pony, that brings the total to 6 out of 9 painted coasters (GR not included) that have the same color palette. Is orange paint just really cheap or something?
