Rougaru was cycling during Friends and Family Day. I could have sworn it was even giving rides that day, although I didn't pay super close attention. So I would assume staffing is the reason it's not been running until now.
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun
I was at CP today and rode Raptor, Blue Streak, Valravn, Corkscrew, Gemini, SkyHawk, and Rougarou between 11:00am & 1:00pm, all walk-ons.Last edited by jimmyburke, Monday, July 27, 2020 6:48 PM
WOW. CP running the big ones during the rain today! Is it that the magnetic breaks have improved during rain!?
The question is - are they running multiple trains?
Nothing says "Fun" like waiting in a light drizzle for a one train operated Valravn. And that was before social distancing!
Haha... I’ll take one train over none. One thing that Covid has taught me, is that people do not have any patience.
When I’m at the store , I think , I’m glad that I grew up with cedar point & Geauga lake in my backyard and I know how to wait in line!
Oh me too! And this year just having the park and operating smoother than ever this last week or so is awesome.
But when I think of the driving rain I grew up riding CP & GL coasters in as a kid. And the moderate to steady rain Kings Island, Kings Dominion and Carowinds still operate their coasters in with all trains. And then to see CP shut down Magnum for an hour because of a 25 second misting. It just doesn't make sense. I'd give up a decade of new coasters for a more sensible rain policy and renovated bathrooms.
