Just Wondering. I have to work. Can I leave the live coverage open on my computer and then catch up when I get home later in the night?

Seems to be an error with the latest post. All i see is a black screen. 5.hours left at work than straight to CP for me. I'm so pumped.

Edit: Nevermind, Android will not display the format. Does anyone know if I can get coverage somewhere on my phone while I am still at work?

What browser are you using, the one that came with the phone? I use opera mini and found its the best browser for a droid. I don't have any problems viewing the updates and its really fast too.

I was hoping for a digital wait time sign.

I am jealous of everyone up there today - beautiful blue sky with a beautiful blue coaster.

Matt Ouimet teases future, saying Rob Decker already given his next challenge.

Was he referring to Cedar Point, or Cedar Fair in general?

i noticed on the ride restriction sign it says glasses must be secured, why is that? You dont have to on xflight or wildeagle or raptor either, so why is this ride like that? I never wear one of those straps on any coasters i've ridden which includes TTD and KK.

Well I must say, the coverage was fantastic. I loved the "4am" video with the Benny Hill music. :)

Bins were not in the station during the morning runs. When the ride opened back up at 3:30, it had bins.

We just got GK to replace DT in 2013, now we need one to replace Wildcat. I'm seriously feeling a new coaster close to that area for 2015, time will tell I guess.........
