Nice to see that they are finally opening this thing. I’m really interested to hear what the ride experience is like and whether it feels more like a coaster or a super loop. It looks like it would be a fun ride, so I am cautiously optimistic about it.
Coaster Count: 202 Last Coaster: El Toro
Top Ten: 1) Superman:TR 2) Millennium Force 3) X2 4) Skyrush 5) El Toro 6) Twisted Colossus 7) Maverick 8) Mako 9) Lightning Rod 10) Storm Runner

I know quite a lot about Donkeys!

This is really ridiculous a ride is opening for the season with 2 weeks of full operation hours left. The week of Aug 13 they cut back to 6pm close for a week and then are weekends only thru the fall. It's essentially like getting nothing for 2018 for the majority of the peak season to draw people in to the new "shiny thing".

Don't blame the park, this ride was a prototype for a smaller company and it has been having many issues that skyline has been working in. I bet the park and Skyline are both annoyed by all the issues.

SFDK is partly to blame. As of the first week of June they were still pouring concrete and not close to being ready for completion or testing. They had no intention of opening the ride till late June at best or early July. The issues with Skyline were later on. The construction was purposely started late, which is SF plan to have nothing ready early in the season and if you're lucky memorial day. More than 1/2 the parks didn't open rides till the middle of June and several not till July.

I wonder if this late opening will affect the timeline of possible future attractions next year. We've gotten thrill rides the last three years so I'd be surprised if they got another one next year. Even a family ride could take some time to plan and build. Maybe they'll opt for a show next year? Or a waterpark addition and market it as a park addition. I'd love to see more animal exhibits especially since many of the park's animals are starting to die from old age, but I would be surprised if they did with the continuing scrutiny of aquatic parks and zoos.

I guess we'll see. Isn't the Six Flags announcement usually in August?

New additions are planned years in advance so I doubt next year is affected. I think the reason why they started construction was late because track and trains didn't show up until mid may and even then they had most of the footers in.

The general public is going to blame the park regardless especially when SF as an whole is tight lipped when just about anything goes wrong or breaks down.
