^ same where I live, but they said coming soon. I heard that then they stopped showing the ad, and now it says now open. I didn't think it was open, just that it is probably close to opening, if not open because the ad had been changed.

Yeah, tons of people are so confused about it. People keep asking "is Mach Tower open yet?" or some other question about Mach Tower already being open and it is always fun to see their face when I say no, its not open. They do need to get it open quick though, but they should do as safely as possible. Those green walls are just ugly and I want to vanish far far away from here.

HOS Update -

So BGWFans says Pompeii is gutted as of the other day and is now starting reconstruction. Cursed is gone, can confirm that because I saw it one night. However, that area used for Cursed is not supposed to be used this year for HOS.

Other really good possibilities for mazes/haunted houses - Catacombs in RPT, something in the EIA Queue, anything in Festhaus Park i probably not going to happen EXCEPT for the Drachen Fire Queue Building. I say that because that building is right at the entrance and exit of FHP and they would not have to "cover up" the area with walls and such for coaster construction or at least not as much. Also, it would be a big pain and hassle to find a way to get to the other building and back while completely ignoring the construction going on. You could also probably put a small maze in the Black Forest Picnic area. I could see something like Cursed fitting there, weaving in and out of structures.

That is all I have, so let speculation and rumors take over now!
I do work at BGW, I am not saying any more info than that about my job. The info I get is from friends and what I see after hours, as well as what I notice and speculate. - RH

I've gone pantless!

^We were told during TPR Day that HOS's original maze was going to be re-created in the Europe in the Air building. As I recall, that maze had a little bit of everything, including evil clowns, a mad scientist, and an animatronic dionsaur skeleton (it was also pretty long). It'll be interesting to see how it works this year, as they don't have the old arcade space to use like they did more than 12 years ago (when King Arthur's Challenge was in that building). We were also told that HOS was going on in the old Drachen Fire area, but weren't given any details.

So, there's going to be a new maze for Pompeii? I hope so, as the old one was getting a bit long in the tooth.

Mini update!

Mach Tower was testing again yesterday so it looks like the problem they had is resolved now. Operator training should commence in time for next week! Tower isn't open yet, but should be up and running in time as long as more problems don't arise.

Verbolten clearing stretches over BBW's final drop now.

Foreign tourists are in full-force right now! I've encountered a few standing in front of Mach Tower as well as on rides. They seem to travel in huge groups carrying cameras, but I prefer them over the middle schoolers any day.

Anyone know if BGW will have that 'Clue Hunt (Put together the virtual pov)' thing for Verbolten like they did for Cheetah Hunt? (I kinda don't want one, I love surprises) =)
