Why? SC,Joker, and Wildfire are all on schedule for what they've been marketed as. Lightning Rod isn't RMCs fault, as Dollywood chose to use a cheap launch system.
208 Feet Up, 221 Feet Down. If you're not scared, you should be. Enjoy your ride on Superman.

^You're right, The Joker certainly wasn't delayed and neither was Storm Chaser. Only Lightning Rod has been, although still not quite sure about Wildfire being open by the 18th as they're saying, hope so though.

the Joker didn't open at all on its public opening date. that's a pretty bad opening if I say so myself

And let's be real here, Rocky Mountain Construction creates coasters so great, I don't think I'm the only one that thinks that delaying the opening by a few days or a few weeks is really no big deal in the big picture.

I love donkeys more than me.

Sure, that's disappointing if you showed up on the day it's down, but my no means is that a major event that's going to cost RMC or six flags major distress. There's always going to be nagging issues like that for a brand new ride. The fault should be on the park for not communicating the issue better so people don't wait in line for 8 hours for it to open

I agree with that. the park should have communicated with people when it went down on Saturday so people could have changed their plans.

the website makes no mention of V2 being down for the past 3-4 months or however long it's been down. If you really want to find out you'd have to call the park or wait for someone who went today.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

The website says that V2 is temporarily closed. The Joker, it says, is open. Not sure how accurate that is, but it is acknowledging V2's closure.
