If CH has a theoretical of 1350, I'd guess around 950-1000 pph actual capacity. Magnum has a theoretical of 2000 riders! Actual capacity hovers around 1200 or 1300. I would not assume CH to have a high capacity, just not a terrible capacity either.


In 2008 the Magnum crew hit ~1800 pph on a fairly decent basis, particularly when the park was crowded. That ride runs wicked efficiently with a competent crew.

On a basic level, you're most likely correct - theoretical will generally be higher than actual. In practice though, some good crews and well designed rides CAN hit that mark with consistency. Its all just a wait and see game until the ride is released, and discussing what pph seems sort of silly (in my opinion). The park knows well what they had designed, and hopefully Intamin can deliver.

I was at BG today, and I saw that the skyride tower that had be modified has its entire top taken off. I took a picture, but my dad took the camera back home before I could get the photo. I'm not sure how much is off, but it looks like an I rather than a T or a 7, if you know what I mean. :lmao:

Awesome to see Cheetah Hunt has been "powered up"... its coming soon!

...and I've watched that baby cheetah video SO many times now... I've been showing it off to all the people I work with and having them fall in love too... its "big" round head is just SO damn adorable... and its "chirping" is too cute... can't wait to see both (coaster and baby) of them "run"...
