^They did a lot of track work on Hurler at Carowinds and it's running better than it used to, but that isn't saying much. The one at KD was always worse, but it seems as if they're doing a ton of work on it now, so we'll see how it turns out once it's back open.

To answer questions on the flume, the trough looked a bit deeper than usual, but I dont know how that affected anything. It seemed to glide mostly over the track and hit the turn at a moderate speed. I didn't feel a forceful jolt, but by just watching it go, you could definately tell it was slamming into the wall violently.

From what I hear, the Son of Beast "box" is gone now, and a small garden is in place.

Seems like they are slowly taking this ride off the map!

Wow really? I wish they would just come out and say what they have planned for this ride/area. It's like they're trying to do it behind our backs.

The box was there on opening day, just without the ride sign. Hopefully the Jizz can confirm this when he gets back from work today.
