looks like they're combining the covered bridge festival and PPP this year into one event on saturday october 10th. hopefully this event still happens and isn't cancelled because of covid. yall think flying turns and/or impulse will be open for this?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

They cancelled the Covered Bridge festival last week and it’s always the same time as PPP.

As for your other question... no idea

Impulse, maybe. Flying Turns was too dismantled when I was there last week to be ready for anytime this year, but stranger things have happened.

flying tunes is getting a 4th lift so I would say is not going to open this year.

Based on posted images from a local ACE member, the trough will no longer travel upward through that last curve to the first brake run, instead, it will remain at level and move into a lift.

If they're doing this it means that the last switchback section may have been a potential point of valleying... This will help with that and give them a higher range of speed with which they can operate it. They've always said that the coaster can't run with guests unless it consistently passes a number of speed checks throughout the circuit.

^Covered Bridge Festival was cancelled so I think it was just assumed PPP would be as well.

Honestly what even is Phoenix Phall Phunfest at this point? We go because we also like some of the stuff at the festival but it's just an 11-10 standard operating day open to everyone and a tent full of nerds that I don't go in. What else am I missing?

^ Two free slices of Cesari's pizza with the Phunfest Combo. Worth it.
