I thought Falcon's Fury was supposed to open yesterday. Did it?

^To my knowledge, no. There have been some technical difficulties with the rotating seats, which is expected since it is a prototype ride.

Saw this on reddit at /r/rollercoasters - apparently Cheetah Hunt now has a splashdown!

From my understanding the area got 8+ inches of rain and the park never opened today because of it. There were cars in nearby parking lots almost completely under water.

It breaks my heart every time I see a flooded coaster!

Good thing it's made of steel though.

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

Can we still ride it like that? :lmao:

Now, seriously. That's an impressive amount of water
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

I'm a know-it-all about donkeys!

It was 6 inches of rain in 2 hours. Not the easiest thing to drain from a deep trench.
