^Everything I’ve read is that this is an overlay of the existing coaster with the added restoration of the mid-ride stops that had previously been turned off.

So hope they can keep it a bit down in the summer months. I'm going to visit the park the first time this year and I'm not in the mood in the summer for cheap halloween stuf, I'm okay if they keep it till the night time.
About the coaster, From what I know about the ride it seems like this could be a step up, if they used the stops. Let's see how this turns out. Also is it a one year deal or does it keep the theming? I think it's to expensive for a one year deal.

It's a huge step up. X as it has been for the past few years has been a shadow of it's past glory, the thing that made the ride unique back before 2013 was the dramatic music, whole ride going backwards in the dark and the fakeout stops. After its last renovation it was just a roller skater inside a nightclub.

It certainly couldn't hurt.

Not long until the whole park is themed to destruction/apocalypse/derelict buildings. ;)

I got the former experience and was completely underwhelmed (and confused).

If they still use the mid-ride stops on it, that's easy placement
for zombies attacking you, etc. That should work great! :)
