One train is already sitting backwards on the transfer track, I didn't see the other one anywhere. Just having red open has seemed to motivate the ride ops, as they were hauling A$$ yesterday.

Nah nah, wasn't intending to call him a liar at all. But a lot of people have forgotten the 1991 and 1996 backwards runs.

I am at the park right now. Both blue trains are backwards and have started testing. If all goes well, the plan is that Backwards Blue WILL open later today, probably between 2:00 and 4:00.

Apparently, they're having frequent minor delays, so testing is taking longer than planned. If Backwards Blue does open today, it probably won't be until late afternoon or evening.

I know quite a lot about Donkeys!

Yep. The dates are 8/8-9/17.

EDIT:

Looks like Iron Wolf is confirmed as leaving September 5th!

From the park's Facebook:
After a long 21 year history at the park, we will be removing Iron Wolf. Make sure to get your last rides in – Iron Wolf’s Last Stand is September 5.

Not to call anyone out, but looks like Screamscape is right again.
