Xcelerator has been left off the list of available rides for fast/fright lane during Scary Farm.

:( not looking so good for my trip across the country next weekend. They did include Montezooma so that is sightly promising, I suppose. Still looking forward to it.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

Are they rebuilding the entire launch motor or something? That’s the only logical explanation at this point unless there’s some visible work being done to the launch track for something wrong with the cable system

Did the donkey fairy give me this title?

I don't think getting a new train would cause months of unplanned downtime. It has been running two trains pretty consistently this year, so I really doubt that the trains are the issue. It's got to be some kind of problem with the launch because nothing else makes sense for the length of the downtime.

Just got off the phone with Domm, he’s there and reports that Montezuma (lights were on and train on the tracks) & Xcelerator are down. Pony express and the log ride were down, but just re-opened operations. We will be there tomorrow, and hopefully Montezumas is open.
Tigga, please!

That Dark Ride maze looks fantastic. Can't wait to hear what people here think of that one. Hoping to make it to Knotts at least once this Halloween.
