They're rocky mountaining the queues to include water fountains for the anniversary next year. I saw the trucks already.
Been you to have any spike, man?

I know TTD obviously is notorious for its excessive downtime and all (I go every year for the past 8 years, only been on it a few times because it’s never open when I’m there) but lately this is far worse than usual. Closed since Saturday I believe. Anyone know what’s going on with it?
Six Flags Darien Lake is my home park..... :?r

CURRENT COASTER COUNT: 63 ....yeah I need to go to more parks lol

TOP 10: 1.) Steel Vengeance, 2.) Millennium Force, 3.) Leviathan, 4.) Mako, 5.) Behemoth, 6.) Maverick, 7.) Top Thrill Dragster, 8.) Ride of Steel, 9.) Yukon Striker, 10.) Valravn

Why do I still have a donkey title???

This is not far worse than usual. This is the textbook definition of usual. Two years ago it vaporized a brake fin and was closed for weeks. :lol:

They're just getting their annual week-long breakdown out of the way early this year.

Well, that's good news! I can't imagine it's a cheap or easy upgrade.

I've been riding (or attempting to ride) TTD since the first weekday of its operation in 2003, and can confirm: This IS 100% textbook TTD, for every single visit, every single year since! :lol:

When I rode it Saturday we experienced 3 rollbacks. Each launch got weaker and weaker. They launched it a fourth time with only the first 4 rows filled and it only made it 2/3 of the way up. So I assume something with the launch.

Perhaps some Knoebel's staff should make the drive up to Sandusky to bring them one of their famous "Waiting On Parts From Europe" signs. :)
