I thought I read that it was opening may 1st? Well, I haven't bought my plane ticket yet, I try to book hotels and rental cars first because I can always change those. I think I'll go contact the park and get the straight dope from them.
Oh I know where I saw it. In one of the construction pictures there was a "May 1st" banner in the background. Of course things can change so I'll look more into it.

Looks like you may be right. Crap, I'm going to Cedar Point and PKI that week. I might have to wait until October then. Sorry Joe, I like your state but it's just too hot during the summer.
Well, remember how the BGT management guy called it a "family coaster" during the announcement of the ride? I know a dive machine doesn't sound like much of a family coaster, but given the video, maybe that term makes more sense now!
The recent B&M's seem to be aiming for the average patron's endurance, not the thrill seeker's, so naturally, they're not as intense. For the parks that purchase them, this is smarter, since more people can enjoy the coasters, but for enthusiasts or experienced coaster riders, this means their top coasters won't be changing for a while, since the new ones don't quite pack the same punch.
I don't think it's a bad thing, either way, though.
Well, maybe they're keeping this one less intense now for PR reasons...remember, tis the season for the media to scrutinize roller coasters (or anything else considered by us young people as fun ^_^) , where even the most minor incident will end up on the evening news.
