It would be great to see Big Foot Rapids get a Garner Holt type renovation. I know the ride is not as special as Log Ride or Mine ride but I think a nice revamp would make it more exciting.

They are starting to run out of old stuff to update and renovate. Maybe it is Bigfoot rapids turn.

2-3 new mazes per year is the norm for Knott's. The good thing is that they have really upped their production in the last 5 years, so the returning mazes don't feel nearly as tired as they used to.

2 new mazes is pretty normal for Knotts. But we’re also getting a new street zone “Forsaken Lake” underneath Silver Bullet, the new Time Zombies VR experience in the Boardwalk arcade and a show in Birdcage theater which hasn’t happened in a few years. Also keep an eye out for new atmospheric elements and characters all throughout the park this year.

I feel like this won't do anything to help the problem. It would be one thing if they have to wait to dispatch the train on every cycle, but when I'm there I find that they consistently dispatch with the second train either stacked or at the slow moving part of the brake run. Something that I think would help is to reprogram the final brake run so that it doesn't add around 15-20 seconds to the cycle time when it is running one train.

yeah, maybe the fastest i've ever seen them dispatch was when the other train hit the brake run, maybe. but most often, like you said, on that slow af return brake run. so, hopefully, this isn't to actually use it as a trim. the ride is still really smooth, unlike most GCI's after a few years. but maybe it is doing more damage to the track than anticipated.

As long as it doesn't trim the trains like it used to, I'm good. Although it won't really help capacity much unless they start running all three trains.

Does Knott's still have 3 trains for Ghostrider? I thought I had heard they only bought 2 new trains for it.
