From KW Facebook:

A Steel Curtain update, as we know many of you are looking for the latest:

Maintenance crews, working with our partners at S & S Worldwide, are continuing work on some adjustments to the ride. Being a unique prototype ride, it's not unusual to have periodic downtime as we have seen over The Steel Curtain's first month of operations. While our team is making progress to get Steel Curtain back open as soon as possible, it will be hard to pinpoint exactly when the ride will reopen as it is a fluid situation. Please know that our primary focus throughout this process is on the safety of the ride for you, our Guests. We aim to provide the best experience possible on a visit to Kennywood, and safety is the first priority in creating that good experience.

When Steel Curtain does reopen, it's also possible that it will have stoppages and periodic closures in the future. This is normal for any amusement ride, especially so given the newness, complexity and record-breaking nature of The Steel Curtain.


Also, they have donated a Log Jammer vehicle to a local charity to auction off. Paging coasterbill.

I stand corrected.

They should donate it to their park in Connecticut so that it can run a reasonable number of logs and do more than like six riders per hour.

^ I think they already got some since Lake Compounce was running more than 3 logs for the first time in a while earlier this year.

Yeah, they actually know how to transfer logs onto a ride.

Coaster trains are an entirely different story.
