They do have an MCBR, but it doesn't look like it slows the train down that much. This is CP and they get crazy attendance, but I'm just focused on how awesome a night ride of this will be.

Ride nights begin once the regular queue has cleared and lasts for one hour.

So who wants to guess what time the ride night really starts? I have driven home at midnight before, don’t think I want to push it to 2AM. Lol.

Oh, nice! They also posted the other ride nights, so I think this season is just going to be awesome. Only problem in the May and June ones is I'm going to have school and/or sail camp the next day.

The testing video working its way around online is unauthorized. Because it is in violation of park rules, much like on-ride video, we ask you not post it here.

I think anyone who thought or had doubts about how the ride would be paced is settled. The Tophat or massive airtime hill after the first drop looks like it went from being awesome floater to ejector. Can't see it in the video 100% but as of the way it is running now it is moving through the first half of the ride. I think Cedar Point will get it right with optimium MCBR exit speed to make the second as good as it should be.

Anything will be better than that near dead stop mid-course that Mean Streak suffered. And that coastus interruptus moment was in an effort to “fix” things.
The nice thing I’ve noticed about RMC design in general is that they work as they should. A notable exception would be Twisted Colossus where the dueling aspect only works every one and a half times. And I attribute that to the human factor, both employees and riders are to blame there. It’s not the ride’s fault. It works on paper.
Not to worry- I think SV will deliver everything that’s promised. In three weeks we will see. It’s almost here.

Very nice with the ride nights on Tuesday. What I will probably do especially in the peak Summer days is not arrive at early entry but I will stay there as long as it need be. It's easy for me to stay up late anyways.


Sacrificing playing video games to ride roller coasters.

If I miss read. Will the Station have Bins to put extra things we can't have riding the Coaster like the Maverick? I never will use a Locker in the Park.

I might splurge on a locker for this ride in an attempt to make myself as slim as possible. You know things like Wallet, keys, sunscreen, phone, hat, underwear etc. :D

No millimeter is to be spared in the full enjoyment of this ride.

I really wish they would implement the "moving" locker system like Six Flags has.

I love the concrete. It would be awesome if they used it in all of Frontier Town.
