Do you non-locals realize how insane this is going to be at night?

Are you assuming that lighting will be minimal?

It will pull crowds away from El Toro at night.

I've heard nothing but good things about the Raptors so far. I narrowly missed out on Wonder Woman when I was down in Texas so I haven't yet tried any of them out. I will be hitting up CGA in mid-April and hopefully be able to get a chance to try out Railblazer beforehand, but regardless, I am very excited about this! Can't wait to get rides on it. Here's hoping it's up and running by June, fingers crossed.

Yes, they are definitely fun and rerideable coasters.

Who would assume otherwise w/ this park?

Hopefully other than station and lift lights, they'll leave the area dark at night. Nitro night rides are much better than Toro, imo. PDC is pretty well lit.

I missed opening weekend for Wonder Woman by a week, but rode Railblazer multiple times last year, and it was a blast. This'll definitely be great.

^ Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't El Toro have vending machines in the queue line?

I vaguely remember the sign by the ride saying no phones or keys. Either way, my wallet is going in the fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo since that vending machine isn't on the meal plan.

I wondered about that once too and a ride op told me that they don't actually care if you bring your wallet in line. Still, since I always get a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo anyway I always throw it in there. I don't know how El Toro or Kingda Ka ever sell ride photos since you have to remember the number, go to the fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo and then come all the way back if you still decide that you want it that badly.
