^^Thanks for the update DS. I've heard a totally unsubstantiated rumor that the reason we aren't seeing MF testing is because they are still having major issues with the lift motor replacement. No clue if there's any validity to that...but seems reasonable.

I hope MF's frequent ups and downs from last year don't continue!!
It was so annoying during our 5 day visit.
Did they replace the lift motor at the end of last season or just recently? What exactly is the reason for not getting it work properly?

Do you expect them to solve the problems until opening day? I will be there again for 5 days at the end of June.....

Isn't that the point of the ride? Otherwise it would just be a boring ride on a flat track. ;)

No one here really knows if there are any issues with MF. I just made a comment about an observation. Dont read anything else into it about that or a rumor. Not everything was running at the same time yesterday. It may be working just fine. Its not like the park wants one of its star attractions down.

Well, there is a CP worker who is actually training at the park these days and he does some posts on reddit.

He did spread the rumours that they still haven‘t got MF working until now, despite replacing the lift motor.

We will find out next week......

Apparently he belongs to the Steel Vengeance crew as he mentioned to have climbed the lifthill today.....

I love the insider things we’d talk about when I was employed at the park, and I love seeing the updates as a Pointbuzzer, but just relay the message that he/she should watch what they post. We don’t want to see anybody getting written up or fired, but just don’t share things you aren’t supposed to. Management takes it seriously.

With that said, I have no doubt maintenance is working very hard to get the ride up and running. Even if it’s just toying with the cable and catch car which isn’t visible from the webcams of course.

Is Panda Express gone? Or am I seeing things on the webcam? The building looks to be demolished...

I doubt it's gone, as it's still listed on the website.

Looking at the WebCam got me thinking. Yall think a compact GCI can fit in Thunder Ally with the station next to Valravns dive loop, lift where wildcat used to be, and the rest a crossed the street?

Camera 1 was showing Valravn, Iron Dragon, and monster trucks all rolling at once. Really cheers me up after the CBJ loss last night. :)

I'm okay with the Valravn/Iron Dragon cam and the Millenium Force/Rougarou cam, but it'd be super cool if someone would change the camera that shows the keyhole pass of GateKeeper and nothing else.

The gate keeper camera shows you how windy it is and let’s you gauge what’s going to be open and not going to be open.

I’m wondering if you can still spoof the app location to see what rides are currently closed
