Thanks for posting the summer show lineup, Chuck. That's quite a collection of performers and as an AGT fan I want to attend all of them! Distance and work prohibit that but I might be able to manage one show. It's like BGW snagged some of Dollywood's performers - DW's summer lineup lacks anything big or interesting so far.
Hey you guys I went to the park last weekend and i noticed a couple of changes in park operations on rides that I guess was made in the offseason and I i wonder If anybody else noticed these.
1. Loch ness monsters lift speed is incredibly faster than before on the first lift. And reaches the top much faster than it use to. And the effects that were working in the tunnel last year have been disabled
2. The more dramatic change was to alpengeist. Not only did they increase the chain speed on the lift but the trim at the top no longer engages to slow the train down. HOWEVER it is made up at the MCBR as it now brutally slows the train and kills the pacing of the rest of the last two inversions. It's almost slows down to the point where you think it's an e-stop.
I guess I wasn't crazy regarding the MCBR. I only visit the park once every year or two but I thought for sure the brake hit hard and the end wasn't as intense. Still a great ride, but I noticed it for sure.

Either way, the comfort collars are useless.
Agreed that they are useless, but do they now at least not hurt? I wasn't planning on even riding Tigris based on my Tempesto ride last summer with those stupid, painful collars, but if there's been a change I'll at least give it a courtesy ride.
